Grace and Frankie s1’s tonal inconsistencies and lazy writing wastes its promising premise

28 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Grace and Frankie, Season 1

Created by Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris

Premiered May 8th, 2015 on Netflix

On the surface, Grace and Frankie sounds almost too good to be true. The title characters (Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, respectively) are two septuagenarians whose husbands, Robert and Sol (Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) announce that they are leaving the women for each other. The strengths and legacies of the actors, the contrast in personalities, and the core hook of the show sound as if they’re tailor-made to deliver Netflix’s next binge-worthy addiction.

It’s a shame, then, that Grace and Frankie squanders its potential with writing that’s flat, unoriginal, and downright uninspired. There’s a plethora of problems with the writing throughout the season, but most notable among them is that creators Marta Kauffman (co-creator of Friends) and Howard J. Morris can’t seem to decide what kind »

Timothy V. Murphy has no problem with kissing and telling… at least when it involves the iconic Jane Fonda and her ageless mouth.  Our photog caught up with the "Sons of Anarchy" star to get the deets on his intimate scene with Jane on her new Netflix show, "Grace and Frankie."    Yeah, she's 77, but Timothy couldn’t wait to tell us why he'd put Jane's lips -- and tongue -- up against any chick in the biz. »

Kurt Sutter Unveils 'Bastard Executioner' TV Show Logo

11 March 2015 6:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than a month after the full cast for the FX series The Bastard Executioner was revealed, series creator Kurt Sutter took to his Instagram page today to show off the official logo. For fans of his last series, Sons of Anarchy, The Bastard Executioner will be quite a departure, set in medieval England during King Edward I's reign between 1272 and 1307 A.D. While you certainly shouldn't expect any motorcycles on this series, it will surely still retain the gritty edge that Kurt Sutter is known for.

The series follows a warrior knight in King Edward I's charge who is broken by the ravages of war and vows to lay down his sword. But when that violence finds him again he is forced to pick up the bloodiest sword of all. Australian actor Lee Jones leads the ensemble cast as this warrior named Wilkin Brattle, with a supporting cast that includes Stephen Moyer, »

Bastard Executioner FX Pilot Casts Katey Sagal and Stephen Moyer

26 February 2015 8:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Multi-talented writer/director/producer Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) has officially set the cast to his upcoming FX pilot The Bastard Executioner. With Soa actress Katey Sagal now onboard, as well as Stephen Moyer from True Blood, let’s just say we’re enthusiastically intrigued.

The Bastard Executioner may only be in the pilot stages right now but that doesn’t me we can’t start getting excited. In the lead role is an unknown Australian theater actor by the name of Lee Jones and according to Deadline, Moyer, Sagal and Sam Spruell (The Huntsman) will play major roles in the period drama. Also appearing onscreen will be Sutter himself, playing a regular character (if it gets picked up to series) who rarely speaks and does not show his face.

The Bastard Executioner follows a warrior knight (Jones) in King Edward I’s charge who has been beaten down by the tragedy of war. »

Kurt Sutter’s The Bastard Executioner Lands Matthew Rhys, Stephen Moyer And More

24 February 2015 1:32 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sons Of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter is set to bring a whole new world of pain and torture to FX with his forthcoming show, The Bastard Executioner. So far only ordered to pilot, the medieval period drama is nevertheless steamrolling ahead with news of its extensive cast of characters.

A shift away from the sunny-but-bloody Californian locale of Sons, The Bastard Executioner will revolve around “a warrior knight in King Edward III’s charge who is broken by the ravages of war and vows to lay down his sword. But when that violence finds him again he is forced to pick up the bloodiest sword of all.”

According to THR, Australian theater thesp Lee Jones has snagged the titular role of a man named Wilkin Brattle. Alongside him in the pool of new arrivals are True Blood star Stephen Moyer, who is set to star as Brattle’s go-to man Milus Corbett, »
