Oh, what could have been. Chris Farley died in 1997 at the age of 33 and yet still left behind an enviable body of work—practically everything on his reel could be considered a highlight, from his SNL Chippendales audition to doing cartwheels on Letterman to all of Tommy Boy, the first buddy-comedy feature he made with David Spade. Spade is among the comedians who appears in I Am Chris Farley, a documentary about the late funnyman premiering Aug. 10 on Spike, after which it will be available on VOD. "Any time you get to talk about Chris Farley [is] a good day, man," Jay Mohr says in the first trailer for the movie, released today. Bob Odenkirk, Adam Sandler, Jay Mohr, Bob Saget, Molly »
Like many of you, I grew up watching Chris Farley on big and small screens. Whether it was the bit parts in comedy movies starring his more successful (at the time) Saturday Night Live co-stars, his scene-stealing characters on the same late-night skit show, or his starring movie roles alongside David Spade, Farley's comedic talent always loomed large. He seemed impossible to ignore, an unstoppable force of physical comedy (and surprisingly agility) who was destined for greatness. But rather than following in the footsteps of comedians who went on to long and successful careers, Farley's path to an early death due to a drug overdose closely resembled that of his comedy idol, John Belushi. While it's easy to get choked up wondering "What could have been?" for the 33-year-old star, a new documentary looks to revisit his legacy in a biography that explores Farley's life, character, and career through the »

Will Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") finally win an Emmy after 13 previous losses? Can Viola Davis ("How to Get Away with Murder") break the color barrier? In our new Emmy predictions slugfest (watch below), Gold Derby editors Daniel Montgomery, Charles Bright and Ralph Galvan join me in making our forecasts for Best Drama Actor and Best Drama Actress. -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders If Hamm were to lose, we predict an upset victory for either Kevin Spacey ("House of Cards"), Jeff Daniels ("The Newsroom"), Bob Odenkirk ("Better Call Saul"), Terrence Howard ("Empire") or Kyle Chandler ("Bloodline"). But watch out for a few under-the-radar actors that are still very much in this race. Since an African-American woman has never won Best Drama Actress, we wonder if perhaps that title will go to Davis, Taraji P. Henson ("Empire"..." »
Voting closed for Emmy nominations on Friday. Ordinarily, I would have already completed my usual If I Had An Emmy Ballot exercise by now, but various other projects got in the way, which means what I'm about to post is even more hypothetical than usual, since it's after the voting deadline. As always, I'm working with the choices listed on the actual Emmy ballots, which means I have to go along with where various shows and actors were categorized and submitted. So I have to consider "Orange Is the New Black" a drama, have to consider Key and Peele supporting actors on their own show, and can't go off the ballot to try nominating an actor like Max Greenfield from "New Girl," who didn't even put his name up for submission. Also, while I've done these as a bunch of separate posts the last few years, this thing's already so »

Back to Part 1 of the Best TV Episodes of 2015 (So Far)
Man Seeking Woman, “Teacup”
Written by Sofia Alvarez
Directed by Tim Kirkby
Aired March 11th, 2015 on Fxx
You won’t find Fxx’s Man Seeking Woman in many year-end discussions, but over the course of its admittedly spotty, watched-by-no-one first season, it staked a claim on some truly unique stylistic real estate in a landscape previously thought to be worked to death: the search for love. Over the last year, there has been a tremendous influx in the number of series trying to combine a “modern” and “edgy” take on modern courtship with ages-old sitcom tropes, but most of these have ranged from lackluster to outright lame. (See almost the entire new network comedy lineup, Fall/Winter 2014-15.) Creator Simon Rich’s vision of the dating world as a literal fantasy hellscape—complete with demonic destination weddings, time travel, »

Believe it or not, 2015 is half done already - and the past six months have delivered some top-notch television, much of it brand new drama, comedy and documentaries.
Picking the finest from a particularly fine crop was no easy task, but these were our rules: it had to launch in 2015, it must have aired one series / season in its entirety and it had to be a continuing series.
So no-one off pieces - e.g. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - and nothing that got the chop - sorry, Banished.
Here - in original broadcast order - are the DS Staff Picks from the year so far.

This interview was conducted for the Comedy/Drama Series issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine. #selfinterview produced in partnership with Verge. Of all the characters who survived to the end of “Breaking Bad,” the sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman did not seem one of the likeliest to get his own spinoff series. But creator Vince Gilligan opted for Goodman, played by comic actor Bob Odenkirk, to be the focus of “Better Call Saul,” his first series since “Bad” ended in a blaze of gunfire and Emmys. “Saul” has a lighter tone than its predecessor; it takes place years before the Saul Goodman we meet. »

It’s been almost two whole years since the Breaking Bad finale aired and fans of the show are still finding it hard letting go and for good reason. It was one of the best shows of the past decade. Only a few months after the finale AMC announced that Vince Gilligan would be working on a prequel spin-off following the early days of dodgy lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk).
Despite it’s large fan base wanting more there was genuine skepticism that spin-off series Better Call Saul would taint the original. Thankfully Better Call Saul retained much of what made Breaking Bad great and it was considered a success, with a second season confirmed to be on the way.

"Bob Odenkirk was always wanting to run lines, he was always very focused, but Bob himself is just a really sweet, kind of goofy guy," reveals Julie Ann Emery about her "Better Call Saul" leading man in our new video webchat (watch below). "He was always committed to the moment at hand, and I love working in that situation. And, you know, we became very friendly on 'Fargo' so it was really nice to play all of those scenes." -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders On AMC's "Better Call Saul," Emery played the duplicitous Betsy Kettleman, who became involved in an embezzlement scheme that caught the eye of up-and-coming lawyer Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill, played by Odenkirk. "I kind of jumped off a cliff with Betsy, and there's no one better to jump off a cliff across from than Bob Odenkirk. It was great having »
It's jarring to see Robin Williams in a movie trailer, so long after the actor's August 2014 death. And he's front and center in the new promo for "Boulevard," his final onscreen film role (he also voices a dog in the comedy "Absolutely Anything," out later this summer), spouting the sort of lines that are imbued with new meaning in the wake of his passing.
Williams plays Nolan, a 60-year-old closeted man stuck in a marriage he doesn't want, working a dead-end bank job for more than 25 years, and wondering how his life got so far from happy.
"Nothing turned out the way I thought, I guess," he says.
One night on the way home from work, Nolan takes a sudden detour down an unfamiliar road, and ends up picking up Leo (newcomer Roberto Aguire), a young hooker who Nolan pays for companionship rather than sex. He's drawn into Leo's life, »

Robin Williams' final drama film Boulevard, the last movie to feature him in person since his death, may make you cry. The fan-favorite Oscar-winning actor, who died at age 63 in 2014, plays Nolan, a middle-aged man stuck in a rut and a passionless marriage to a woman. His life is changed after he meets a young male prostitute, Leo, played by Roberto Aguire. He pays him solely for his company, connects with him emotionally and finally embraces his true sexuality and authentic self. "Maybe it's never too late to finally start living the life you really want," says his friend Winston, played by Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk, as seen in a trailer released this week. Edward »
In his final on-screen role, Robin Williams stars in Boulevard as a lonely married man who begins to confront the emptiness that permeates his life. That mundane life changes dramatically after he picks up a young male hustler (Roberto Aguire) on a Nashville street. Kathy Baker and Bob Odenkirk co-star. The film, directed by Dito Montiel, bowed at Tribeca last year. Starz Digital picked up U.S. rights and will release the pic in theaters beginning July 10. Williams… »
Boulevard Trailer. Dito Montiel‘s Boulevard (2014) movie trailer stars Robin Williams, Bob Odenkirk, Kathy Baker, and Giles Matthey. Boulevard‘s plot synopsis: “A devoted husband in a marriage of convenience is forced to confront his secret life.”
Boy, oh boy. It’s hard to make a trailer for this film without it feeling off. Robin Williams hanged himself and slit his wrists. That’s dark. There’s nothing inspiring or positive or hopeful about any of that. We’re told to celebrate his life, and we sure do. We love his films, and we miss his personality.
Robin Williams has always been his best in dramatic performances. I truly believe that. I know he’s a funny-man, a comedian to most, and probably best known as Ms. Doubtfire. But even in that movie, you can see the emotional intellect behind his face. He was a highly intelligent man, and impossible talented. »

Robin Williams is a 60-year-old man who is forced to confront his secret life in the first trailer for “Boulevard,” which will showcase the late actor’s final dramatic performance. The film follows a banker in a marriage of convenience who decides to pick up a male hustler (Roberto Aguire) one night. Although he pays for companionship rather than sex, the life-changing experience will force Williams’ character to confront his slowly-emerging sexual identity. “Boulevard,” which co-stars Bob Odenkirk and Kathy Baker, is the latest from director Dito Montiel (“A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints”), and was written by Douglas Soesbe. »
