Review: 'Banshee' - 'A Fixer of Sorts'

23 January 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of tonight's "Banshee" coming up just as soon as I grab that hood ornament... "Banshee" is a show that doesn't particularly lend itself to weekly analysis, but "A Fixer of Sorts" was the show operating at such peak efficiency that it warrants mention. First, the Burton/Nola fight was insane, both for the graphic brutality of it — each of them suffering injuries that would have killed or at least crippled them in a more grounded series — and just the way it was shot, particularly the sequence when the camera appears to do a full orbit around the car while they're fighting inside it. I don't know if that was really a single take or if there's a digital cheat in there somewhere, but it looked amazing. And yet even as those two are tearing each other to shreds, there's still that unexpected thoughtfulness that makes "Banshee" more than just well-executed pulp exploitation. »

'Banshee' stars talk sex vs. violence, Kai Proctor and Job

20 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Late last week, I posted the first set of highlights from the "Banshee" screening and fan Q&A we held in Los Angeles. Now it's time for a few more pieces of insight and humor from stars Antony Starr and Ivana Milicevic and creator Jonathan Tropper. In this video, we touch on where Tropper tries to draw the line between pulp and gratuity, particularly when it comes to nudity on the channel once (and perhaps still) known as Skinemax, plus the origins of two of the show's most colorful, memorable characters in Kai Proctor and Job. (On the latter, the video doesn't include an earlier exchange where I refer to Job as an "explosives expert," and both Tropper and Starr object, on the grounds that he tends to use too much C4 most of the time — one of several reasons why Starr thinks Hood and his crew are pretty lousy criminals. »

FX chief on the 'Americans' future, 'Bridge' cancellation and state-of-the-network

18 January 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's hard to believe, but the TCA press tour is coming toward its end. We have PBS on Monday and Tuesday to wrap things up, but Sunday (January 18) is an FX day packed with panels, from "Archer" and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," to an afternoon that closes with the potent punch of "Louie"/"Justified"/"Americans." I'll be live-blogging a few of those panels and doing write-ups of whatever news breaks, but first, it's time to spend quality time with FX Networks and FX Productions CEO John Landgraf. Follow along... 9:25 a.m. Pacific. The picture with this live-blog isn't from today, but it reflects John Landgraf's lack of facial hair. This is important. No network chief keeps us guessing with facial hair like John Landgraf. 9:37 p.m. FX is panning an insane six comedies and two dramas today. That's a lot. The clip reel shows the network »

'Ahs: Freak Show': Who's the latest freak to die? [Spoiler] talks the major twist -- exclusive

7 January 2015 11:01 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

[Spoiler Alert: This post discusses plot details of the Jan. 7 episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show.] It wasn't such a Happy New Year for a lot of the freaks on American Horror Story. Jimmy (Evan Peters) discovered that Stanley (Denis O'Hare) had sold his hands. Elsa (Jessica) found out the sad fate of Ma Petite. But the fella who had the worst batch of luck was definitely Michael Chiklis' Dell: the strongman was shot dead by Elsa after he confessed to Ma Petite's murder. EW talked exclusively to Chiklis about the twist and whether he'd return to Ahs for the fifth season. »

Review: Too much is just right for 'Banshee' season 3

6 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As a drama, "Banshee" is preposterous. It is ludicrous. It regularly defies laws of both plausibility and physics, and there's usually at least one moment per episode where I have to pause the action because I can't stop laughing at how ridiculous it all is. And that is why I've come to love it. "Banshee" is a show that should have no business working at all, let alone returning for an incredibly strong third season Friday night at 10 on Cinemax(*). At first glance, the premise — ex-con assumes the identity of a small-town Pennsylvania sheriff — feels extremely limited, like something better-suited to a straight-to-Netflix movie than an ongoing cable drama, even on HBO's pulpier sister channel. The amount of mayhem visited on this small burg in the middle of Amish country, and the colorful nature of the people perpetrating said mayhem, makes the place often seem a closer approximation of Gotham »
