Season finale review: 'Shameless' - 'Lazarus'

7 April 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Shameless" concluded its fourth season last night, and I have some thoughts on the finale and the season as a whole coming up just as soon as I feel a bit like "Pretty Woman"... A few weeks ago, "Shameless" producer John Wells got permission from the TV Academy to submit the show as a comedy at this year's Emmys, when in its first three years it was submitted as a drama. On the one hand, this seemed like a worthy Hail Mary pass from a producer whose show doesn't quite fit either category, but that has a host of wonderful performances, especially by the aptly-named Emmy Rossum as Fiona Gallagher, the young adult daughter fighting to keep her family together. On the other, Wells was doing it for a season where "Shameless" was more clearly a drama than ever before, especially where Fiona was concerned. Fiona began season 4 having apparently figured life out. »

Endeavour returns: 5 more TV prequels we'd love to see

28 March 2014 5:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Morse returns to our screens this Sunday (March 30) - though we refer of course to the younger variant, played by Shaun Evans in ITV's returning '60-set series Endeavour.

Prequels are hot right now - Saul's days before Breaking Bad will be explored in a new series, while a new show exploring Commissioner Gordon's life pre-Batman is also in the works.

This proclevity for prequels got us thinking - which other popular TV shows would benefit from the same treatment?

24

Kiefer Sutherland's ex-ctu agent Jack Bauer is finally returning in May to take on new terrorist threats, but after four years without 24 on our screens, we're hungry for even more Jack.

His life prior to the first season of 24 has been much discussed, but never depicted on screen. While it's near-sacrilege to suggest anyone but Kiefer playing Jack, we'd definitely watch a show about a younger Bauer's exploits in Special Forces, »

Cannes Prospects: ‘Foxcatcher,’ Inarritu’s ‘Birdman’ Likely Headed to the Croisette

26 March 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A belated festival premiere for Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” and a powerhouse showing for British filmmakers including Mike Leigh and Ken Loach — plus appearances by other usual suspects such as David Cronenberg, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Nuri Bilge Ceylan and the Dardenne brothers — are among the strong possibilities hovering over the lineup of the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival.

In recent years, festival topper Thierry Fremaux and his selection committee have tended to push their final decisions to the very last minute under a nearly impenetrable veil of secrecy, defying the intense media scrutiny and endless speculation that always swirl around the Cannes lineup at this time of year. Although anything could change between now and April 17, when the official selection is unveiled — there are still enough hotly anticipated titles in the mix to warrant some educated guesswork about what is shaping up to be a promisingly diverse slate of auteurs. »

A day after committing to three seasons of The Big Bang Theory, CBS has renewed 18 shows, which leaves only The Mentalist, Intelligence and, most worrisome, The Crazy Ones with their fates undetermined.

Don’t care about the source, I just want to keep my John Cho delivery system working.

Ascension is described as “part Battlestar (Galatica) and part Downton Abbey,” and follows a space shuttle that was secretly sent on a mission to find a world that can be colonized back in 1963. If the mini-series is successful, »

Zack Snyder Responds to Joel Silver 'Watchmen' Criticism

3 March 2014 9:31 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, producer Joel Silver made some surprising comments about the 2009 adaptation Watchmen, stating that director Zack Snyder was too much of a "slave" to the original graphic novel by Alan Moore, while revealing that he preferred Terry Gilliam's original take on the project.

Today, Zack Snyder himself responded, claiming that Terry Gilliam's ending was "completely insane."

"It's funny, because the biggest knock against the movie is that we finally changed the ending, right? Right, and if you read the Gilliam ending, it's completely insane."

In the original graphic novel, an alien squid attack is the event that brings all the warring nations of Earth together, but in the movie adaptation, Dr. Manhattan (Billy Crudup) was perceived as this world-altering threat. In Terry Gilliam's ending, Ozymandias (Matthew Goode) convinced Dr. Manhattan to go back in time and prevent his own creation, which caused several different changes to the story. »

'Watchmen' Producer Joel Silver Reveals Original Story Twist

27 February 2014 10:30 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for his upcoming action-thriller Non-Stop, producer Joel Silver revealed new details about an earlier version of Watchmen that was worked on by director Terry Gilliam and writer Sam Hamm, which was much different than Zack Snyder's version. If you haven't seen Watchmen or read the original graphic novel, there will be spoilers throughout the rest of this story.

While the producer felt that Zack Snyder approached the legendary graphic novel by Alan Moore in the right way, he revealed that the director was too slavish to the source material, and Terry Gilliam's take was a much better movie.

"It was a Much much better movie [...] I mean, Zack came at it the right way but was too much of a slave to the material. I was trying to get it Back from the studio at that point, because I ended up with both V for Vendetta »
