The 25 Best One-Season Television Shows of the Last 25 Years

15 August 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the age of peak TV, we’ve gotten to see many series which are constructed to be satisfying after just one season of storytelling. But it’s important to remember that this is a relatively new phenomenon, that all too often, potentially great shows will get cancelled before getting the chance to reach their full potential.

The list below focuses on scripted series, reaching back over two decades to cover some of television history’s most disappointing ends. The aim is to remember some of network and cable’s most audacious experiments, for better and for worse.

25. “Almost Human” (2013-2014)

Emmy Nominations: My Fearless Predix

The wait is almost over. Nominations for the 2017 Emmy Awards will be announced Thursday at 11:30 am Et

(watch them live right here on TVLine) and here’s what I can promise you: HBO’s Big Little Lies and FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan will dominate the limited series categories, NBC’s Trump-fueled Saturday Night Live will walk away with one of its largest nomination hauls ever, and the list of egregious snubs will be as long as it will be painful. Beyond that, it’s a total crap shoot.

Emmy Contenders 2017: Guest Actor in a Drama

1 June 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Look for returning characters to dominate the category, with last year’s winner Hank Azaria likely to repeat his nom for his role as disgraced FBI Agent Ed Cochran in “Ray Donovan.” Beau Bridges should land his third consecutive nod for “Masters of Sex.” Mark Margolis was last nominated for playing Hector Salamanca on “Breaking Bad” in 2012, and that was with a minimum of dialogue, so he has a good shot for bringing a younger but no less terrifying Hector to “Better Call Saul.” Ben Mendelsohn previously won in the supporting category for “Bloodline” but this year he’s eligible as a guest star. year. And both Dylan Baker and Matthew Perry could earn nods for bringing their characters from “The Good Wife” to its spinoff “The Good Fight.”

The freshman series “This Is Us” could be a powerhouse, with turns from Denis O’Hare, Brian Tyree Henry, Jermel Nakia and Gerald McRaney. But »

TV Review: Jim Carrey’s ‘I’m Dying Up Here’ on Showtime

31 May 2017 8:59 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Not quite midway through the first season of “I’m Dying Up Here,” Richard Pryor shows up and gives the entire enterprise a kick in the pants.

Pryor, played with live-wire energy by Brandon Ford Green, is not a major presence in the drama, it should be noted. Versions of real-life people are scattered throughout “I’m Dying Up Here” — Dylan Baker is a perfectly amiable yet chilly Johnny Carson, for instance — but the show is not, for the most part, a behind-the-scenes story about household names. The 10-part series, based on a non-fiction book by William Kneodelseder about the Los Angeles comedy scene of the ’70s, does boast Jim Carrey as an executive producer, but its characters are, for the most part, fictional composites.

And too often, a number of them are a good deal less interesting than the show’s version of Pryor. The series spends a lot of time on truths that are fairly »

‘The Good Fight’ Finale: Robert & Michelle King Talk Law, Disorder and Plans for Season 2 (Spoilers)

16 April 2017 6:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“There’s a whole lot of people who want to see this country fail, Diane,” Adrian Boseman tells Diane Lockhart in the season finale of “The Good Fight.”

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watch the season finale of “The Good Fight,” titled “Chaos.”

The spinoff of “The Good Wife” concludes its first season with a strong episode, “Chaos,” that does a good job of capturing the unsettled, post-election moment. Protesters are screaming in the streets, hackers are running amok, fake news is pervasive, Internet trolls are malicious and government is overtaxed at best and corrupt at worst.

“It feels like something’s come detached — like a piece of machinery that doesn’t sound right,” Boseman says.

In this environment, it’s a gift to have “Good Fight” to pick up the mantle of its predecessor and offer an entertaining and thought-provoking weekly look at defense lawyers who are basically trying to do the right »

The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 9 Review: Self Condemned

9 April 2017 8:55 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Things are getting weirder.

On The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 9, Maia met with the FBI about the ponzi scheme, and Diane and Adrian took on another police brutality case.

I'll start with Maia because her storyline carries significant consequences.

But first, how delightful was it to see Jane Lynch? I love everything she does, and this role was no different.

Here, she played FBI agent, Madeline Starkey, who's trying to help Maia recall memories from her teenage years that may or may not shed light on the ponzi scheme. Agent Starkey wanted to know what Maia knew and when.

It's hard to tell whether she's on Maia's side, against her, or just trying to find the truth. I'm leaning toward the latter, though.

But Maia was just a teenager. How much does any teenager know about what their parents are doing? Especially if the parents are running a multi-million dollar company. »

The Good Fight Dances With the Devil

9 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The face Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) made when she saw Colin Sweeney again said it all. In "Self Condemned," Dylan Baker returned as the alleged wife-killing billionaire, and this time he needed Diane's help with a police brutality case. Alicia wouldn't take his case, but Adrian (Delroy Lindo) got wind of it because he's been on a quest to get the crooked cop off the force. Because it's Colin Sweeney, things weren't simple. Drugs, Israeli mistresses and somehow an ambassadorship under Donald Trump all came into play. Typical. In the end, Diane and Adrian were able to get Colin off for the assault charges the cop was alleging and the cop off the force too, but he wouldn't be joining their »

Movie Review – Catfight (2016)

10 March 2017 4:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Catfight, 2016.

Directed by Onur Tukel.

Starring Sandrah Oh, Anne Heche, Alicia Silverstone, Justin Ahdoot, and Dylan Baker.

Synopsis:

Two former college friends come to blows at a fancy birthday party, and the ramifications of their fight takes them both down strange life paths in the years that follow.

You’ve probably seen women fighting on film before, but it’s unlikely that you’ll have ever seen anything as remotely odd and visceral as Catfight. The entire film is based around not just one, but a series of surprisingly brutal and bloody altercations between the central leading ladies, feeding all sorts of internal monologues about everything from the shape of violence in the media, to notes on class and the positively bonkers real-world political climate. It’s a satire of sorts; a jet black comedy that’s wonky as hell but also thoroughly entertaining thanks to a pair of knockout performances. »

New to Streaming: ‘One More Time With Feeling,’ ‘Memento,’ ‘Frailty,’ and More

3 March 2017 9:30 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Catfight (Onur Tukel)

Who knew that one of the year’s most potent representations of America’s addiction to abrasive conflict would be Anne Heche and Sandra Oh beating each other to a pulp? Onur Tukel’s Catfight is an unabashedly silly and political film, but it’s also a funny one, with its two lead actresses literally and figuratively hurling themselves into their roles.
