Broken episode 5 review

Louisa Mellor Jun 27, 2017

Broken’s storytelling, writing and performances are first rate. Here’s our review of its penultimate series 1 episode…

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Fast & Furious 8 review Fast & Furious 8 Blu-ray/DVD release date and bonus features

Despite being led by a bona fide movie star, Broken isn’t a showy drama. It doesn’t inspire hashtags or memes, or attract the sort of headlines and fanfare of other TV programmes. Instead, every Tuesday at 9pm, quietly and deliberately, it breaks our hearts.

With good reason. Broken has a job to do and each week sets about doing it with dreadful efficiency. Through an anthology of stories showcasing the pressures in play on everyday people from within and without, it aims to create empathy and understanding. It keeps breaking our hearts so they heal stronger. 

This week, it did so by setting in motion a course of events »

Broken delivers its most affecting episode yet as Roz’s story is brought to the fore…

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Poldark series 3 episode 2 review Poldark series 3 episode 1 review Poldark: a beginners’ guide

£232,648. There was something hypnotic about episode four’s repetition of the exact sum of money Roz Demichelis stole from her employer. Several times, she specified the precise amount. £232,648 - the weight of her sin, the price of her life.

Start to finish, this was an exceptional hour of drama. The opening scene in which gentle, kind Father Michael dream-raged at his mother and ex-girlfriends slapped you awake, then the tension of Roz’s story—would she go through with it? What might change her mind?—kept you alert with dread until the moment she let herself fall. Resolute in her decision to take her own life, Father Michael couldn’t have stopped her »

Deadwood Movie May Shoot This Year Says Ian McShane

10 June 2017 8:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This August will mark the 11th anniversary of a very sad date in TV history, the last episode of Deadwood, which was unceremoniously canceled after its Season 3 finale. Given the massive fan base for the show, many had been holding out hope that the show would come back in some way, and in January 2016, those fans' prayers were answered when the network gave the green light for a new Deadwood movie. We reported in April that series creator David Milch has delivered his script to HBO, but we haven't heard anything since then. Today we have word from Ian McShane, who said that the movie may in fact shoot before the end of the year.

Variety spoke with Ian McShane, who was promoting his new hit series American Gods on Starz, when the talk eventually shifted to Deadwood. The last update we had on the movie was last month, when »

Emmy Contenders 2017: Supporting Actress in a Drama

6 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

New blood is bound to infuse the category this year as four of last year’s nominees (including winner Maggie Smith of “Downton Abbey”) are ineligible. Smith’s show came to an end, and the three other nominees were for “Game of Thrones,” a series that returns in July, thus missing the deadline for 2017. That’s good news for two of last year’s nominees, Maura Tierney (“The Affair”) and Constance Zimmer (“UnReal”), who could repeat this year. It also opens the door for previous winner Uzo Aduba (“Orange Is the New Black”) to return, along with Margo Martindale, who won in the guest category last year on “The Americans” and has been promoted to supporting this year. But there are several new shows to consider, and many introduced brand new faces we’ve come to love. Two virtual unknowns won our hearts in the past year: Millie Bobby Brown on “Stranger Things” and Chrissy Metz on »

Broken episode 2 review

2 June 2017 2:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jun 6, 2017

Broken is no cheerier in episode two, but like all of Jimmy McGovern’s work, its wretched stories are being told for good reason…

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Mr Robot interview: Sam Esmail on hackers, Fight Club Why Mr Robot is Fight Club’s spiritual successor Mr Robot season 2 episode 12 review: Python Pt. 2

In this week’s episode of Jimmy McGovern’s Broken, Father Michael urges a suicidal woman to turn her tale of woe into something productive. Don’t just give up, he tells her, use your story to make things better. If you’re terrified of being found out for stealing from your employer to feed a gambling addiction, own up and atone. Use your experience to campaign against the real villain, he says - the gambling outfits deliberately targeting the poor to suck them dry.

Unsurprisingly, McGovern and Father Michael share the same idea. »

The Best and Worst Prequel TV Series — IndieWire Critics Survey

11 April 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What does it take to make a good prequel TV series? (And feel free to include an example of a show that got it right or wrong.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

A prequel TV series is the most successful when it uses familiar touchstones but creates its own world. “Hannibal” is probably the best example of this, where there were characters we recognized but the setting, experience, and modern time period were completely Bryan Fuller’s (wonderfully so). “Bates Motel” has been another positive example, especially as it nears its end. The time period is again modernized, but it keeps a surreal and retro feel. And »

Ray Donovan Season 5 Taps Susan Sarandon for Major Arc

13 March 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

If you've been enjoying Susan Sarandon on Feud: Bette and Joan, you're in luck.

She'll be sticking around television for the foreseeable future. It seems Sarandon has been bitten by the TV bug!

While she's had guest starring roles in the past, none have been quite as notable as these. Up next? A major recurring arc on Ray Donovan Season 5.

Sarandon has had other roles in television.

Aside from one-offs and movies, she had a recurring arc on Rescue Me as Alicia Green.

Alicia got involved with Franco at just about the time he began getting more involved with his daughter, Keela, and that made for quite a dramatic relationship between Alicia and Franco because of how Alicia felt about Keela needing a family.

Sarandon also had a recurring arc on HBO's The Big C starring Laura Linney and Oliver Platt. Sarandon's character becomes a spiritual guru to Platt's character and things run amok. »
