'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' co-creator on Holt's promotion, Jake and Amy's slow-burn romance & more

17 May 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" just wrapped up its strong second season with its best episode of the year, dealing with Jake and Amy's awkward attraction for each other, Captain Holt trying to avoid being promoted out of the Nine-Nine by Chief Wuntch, and Boyle helping Diaz on her birthday. Rather than do a review, I reached out to "Brooklyn" co-creator and showrunner Dan Goor with some emailed questions about both the events of the finale and season 2 as a whole, coming up just as soon as I Don Johnson it... Did you know when you made the finale who the new captain would be? If not, do you know now, whether the specific performer or at least the type of character it is? And what are you comfortable saying?   Dan Goor: We did not know who the new captain would be when we came up with the finale.  We were really »

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Recap: Romantic Woes

4 May 2015 5:22 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

My biggest issue with Brooklyn Nine-Nine continues to be how many episodes go by without the characters actually wanting much of anything. So “Det. Dave Majors” was a blast of barrelproof whiskey-scented fresh air with a delightfully fizzy orange-soda back. Part of the appeal of this intensely fast-paced and notably funny episode is the team-up between co-writers Gabe Liedman and Lakshmi Sundaram, who have consistently been the most eager of the show’s staff when it comes to taking advantage of the Brooklyn setting (they wrote the episodes centered around the artisanal chocolate-milk parlor and the potential arson at the pizzeria, respectively). For this go-round, they came up with another winner: a password-based underground bar called the Keychain, patronized by the titular Mr. Majors, the “blotter dynamite” NYPD detective whom Jake and Amy both idolize for his killer arrest and conviction rate. He’s played by Garret Dillahunt, a recent »

Review: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' - 'Det. Dave Majors': Speakeasy rider

3 May 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of tonight's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" coming up just as soon as we get a frozen yogurt machine operated by Pam Grier... As I said last week, there are areas in which the show has had success at telling more emotional Peralta stories, and areas where it hasn't. Fortunately, the slow-burning flirtation between Peralta and Santiago has consistently been an area where taking Jake seriously has worked, and we got another strong example of that in the well-balanced "Det. Dave Majors." What started off as another instance of Jake going overboard to impress a cooler guy — in this case, Garret Dillahunt smartly underplaying the episode's badass title character — instead pivoted into a solid Jake and Amy story. I remain impressed by the way this thing has been paced, so that it feels patient and not overdone, but never like the show is just dragging it out for the sake »

'Justified' creator Graham Yost on pressure 'to end a series well' [Exclusive Video]

30 April 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"There is a lot of pressure now in the world of television to end a series well, and that was certainly our goal," says "Justified" showrunner and co-creator Graham Yost to Gold Derby in our recent video chat (watch below). His FX drama series about U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) returning to his Kentucky roots ended its six-season run this year.  Spoilers Ahead -Break- Fans expected a final showdown between Givens and Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins), a man he had been pursuing for years, as well as a resolution of the love triangle between those two and Crowder's fiancee Ava (Joelle Carter). And it had to tie up the storyline that saw the Crowders plotting to steal $10 million from drug kingpin Avery Markham (Sam Elliott), his fiancee Katherine Hale (Mary Steenburgen) and their evil henchmen (Jonathan Tucker, Garret Dillahunt).

HitFix First Look: On 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' Terry loves swag

30 April 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This Sunday's episode of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is one of my favorites of the second season, featuring a guest appearance by Garret Dillahunt as the NYPD's coolest detective in one story, and Terry being recruited by a private security firm in the other. It's a nice balance of a lot of things the show does best. This exclusive clip is from the Terry plot, as he returns from a lunch with his potential new boss loaded with swag, much to the dismay of Boyle and Gina, who don't want their favorite superhero to leave. "Det. Dave Majors" airs Sunday night at 8:30 Eastern on Fox. And if you've forgotten some of the other things that Terry loves, remember this: »

'Justified' producer on who lived and who died in the finale, and a Mags cameo that wasn't

14 April 2015 8:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With "Justified" over (here's my series finale review), I got on the phone with showrunner Graham Yost to discuss why certain characters lived, others died, and which characters (Mags? Quarles?) he might have brought back under different circumstances, all coming up just as soon as I come back here with a jackhammer... I want to start with the hat, because I know it was one of the few significant creative disagreements you ever had with Elmore (Leonard). At what point did you decide you wanted Raylan to end the series wearing the smaller Stetson that met with his approval? Graham Yost: Pretty early on in the season, we knew we wanted to create a character who really modeled himself after Raylan to one degree or another, and he would get a hat, and Raylan would end up with the bad guy's hat. It's still not a perfect match for what Elmore wanted, »

Goodbye to 'Justified,' a sharp-tongued, quick-drawing pleasure to the end

13 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"You make me pull, I put you down." These eight words are deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in a nutshell — and Elmore Leonard in a nutshell as well. The eight words, first presented in that order in Leonard's short story "Fire in the Hole" (expanding on a supporting player in a few earlier Leonard novels), tell you that Raylan is a man with both a rigid code and a high opinion of himself. And that he has to say them out loud — in this case to his former friend and present nemesis Boyd Crowder — suggests Raylan is a man who very much enjoys opportunities to put his code, and gun, into action. As dialogue goes, it is simple and spare while telling you everything you need to know — the perfect Elmore Leonard sentence. TV veteran Graham Yost took that line off the page and put it into the mouth »

Review: 'Justified' - 'Dark as a Dungeon': Raylan's song

10 March 2015 8:09 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Justified" coming up just as soon as I interrupt a goat sacrifice... "The past is a statement. The future is a question." -Raylan "The past and the future are a fight to the death." -Ava We're now in the second half of this final "Justified" season, and almost everyone has one eye on the way out of Harlan. Raylan is finally taking real steps to unload the haunted(*) family home, including having the remains of his father, mother and stepmother disinterred. Ty Walker nearly talks Boyd and Ava into helping him rob Markham's vault so they can all get the hell out of town, and the reward  they get for helping Raylan kill Walker seems like plenty of getaway money to Ava, if not Boyd. (*) On the one hand, having your hero argue with his dad's ghost seems really low on the What Would Elmore Do? »

Review: 'Justified' - 'Alive Day': Train in vain

24 February 2015 8:03 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Justified" coming up just as soon as I come across a chupacabra... "Maybe this time, things end different." -Boyd Last week, I wrote that I looked forward to "seeing the very stupid way" in which Choo-Choo would died, thinking about the accidental demises of White Boy Bob in "Out of Sight," or Danny Crowe when he tried to test his 21-foot rule theory on Raylan last season. "Alive Day" appears to kill off our latest impulsive man of violence, who fails to get crushed by his namesake, but instead expires from wounds acquired in a shootout with Raylan, Tim, Ty Walker and some of Avery Markham's other mercs. And it's not just the method of Choo-Choo's death that's a surprise, but the tone of it. Introduced as perhaps the dumbest and strongest of the series' many dumb strong guys, he instead turns out to be someone »

Rainn Wilson and Other Funny TV Stars Take Over Ingrid Michaelson's New Video

19 February 2015 11:26 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Office may be over, but Ingrid Michaelson's latest video reunites a few of the actors - Rainn Wilson, Brian Baumgartner, and David Koechner - as they lip-sync and totally take over her new single, "Time Machine." The Office guys aren't the only funny TV stars there; Donald Faison, Garret Dillahunt, and Jorge Garcia (just to name a few!) are also guest stars, singing and dancing their hearts out until Michaelson takes the control back. »

Review: 'Justified' - 'Noblesse Oblige': 30 minutes or less

3 February 2015 8:05 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Justified" coming up just as soon as you lead to unevenness in my facial tone... "Come to it, I guess you ain't all that big now. Grown, but still just playing pretend." -Avery Markham It likely doesn't come as much of a surprise when "Noblesse Oblige" reveals Avery Markham as the man pulling the strings of Ty Walker and company. The show wasn't going to bring Sam Elliott in just to smoke weed and be charming, and his old ties with Katherine Hale simultaneously simplifies this season's arc (because now we see how all the pieces are connected) and complicates it (because Katherine and Avery's relationship is dysfunctional even by "Justified" standards). Mainly, though, it's just a pleasure to watch Elliott work, sporting a different look than we're used to (not only clean-shaven, but with hair swept back, and in a slick suit and bolo tie »

Justified's Joelle Carter Examines Ava's Dilemma, Teases Deadly Twist Ahead

3 February 2015 7:52 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Ava Crowder is a woman caught in the middle as FX’s Justified unspools its farewell run.

On the one hand, she has bad boy Boyd Crowder laboring to keep her at his side, with the prospect of a final score that will seed their happy ending far away from Harlan. U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, meanwhile, has the goods on Ava, having had her sprung from the hoosegow in trade for solidifying the Rico case against her estranged fiancé.

Review: 'Justified' - 'Cash Game'

27 January 2015 8:04 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Justified" coming up just as soon as we decide whether we're going to flapjack or short bus the bad guys... "You see, Raylan, I've learned to think without arguing with myself." -Boyd Like the Elmore Leonard stories that inspired the series, "Justified" has a tendency to have very complicated plots, with each season featuring multiple groups of villains pursuing different agendas that frequently intersect and cause headaches for each other and Raylan Givens. The trick is to make the villains entertaining enough that we don't mind doing the mental calculations about who's after what, or waiting through the cryptic early episodes until we find out everyone's angle. When the bad guys are, for instance, Quarles and Limehouse, then it's no big deal trying to untangle that season's Gordian plot; when it's Daryl Crowe, then you start to notice how contorted things are getting.

Season premiere review: 'Justified' - 'Fate's Right Hand'

20 January 2015 8:14 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Justified" is back for its final season. I published some overall thoughts on the new episodes this morning, and I have a review of the premiere coming up just as soon as I tell you that carrying my underpants is important... "Fate's Right Hand" simultaneously points towards the end of the series while it looks back at the beginning. In the return and then murder of Dewey Crowe, it gives us both at once. Dewey was one of the very first bad guys Raylan met in his return to Kentucky, and the fact that the show is finally ready to stamp out the poor, stupid cockroach tells us how close the story is to wrapping up. If there's no longer any room for Dewey's antics, then things are about to get very dire indeed. We open the season, interestingly enough, not with anyone in Harlan or Lexington, but with Winona »

Justified Season Premiere Review: “Fate’s Right Hand” (Season 6, Episode 1)

20 January 2015 7:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dewey Crowe is in the back of Boyd Crowder’s bar, bloody, exhausted, and broken. Over the course of the two days he’s been out of prison, he’s reconciled with the woman who’s as close to a lover as he’ll ever have, enjoyed the blissful clarity of an epiphany, and mended ties with his oldest friend. He’s also been shot at, had his jaw broken by a U.S. marshal, and been duped by the aforementioned friend. In this moment, a time when he played tag-along to a bunch of backwoods skinheads sounds like the good ol’ days. He’s looking over his shoulder instead of at what’s staring him in the face, fixated on a simple, rose-tinted past. Now just as hopeless as he is feckless, Dewey shakes the 8-ball and asks a fateful question: “Why can’t it be like that again, »
