24 great comedy shows that deserve more love

13 November 2014 3:37 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We asked Den Of Geek’s writers to recommend brilliant comedy shows that deserve to have more of a fuss made about them. Here they are...

Banging a drum about stuff we love is more or less our remit on Den Of Geek - hence what many readers have started referring to as the ‘inexplicably regular' appearance of Statham, squirrels and Harold Bishop from Neighbours on these pages.

To that end then, we asked our writers which comedy shows (past and present, UK or otherwise, on TV, radio, or online…) deserved more praise, and here are the ones they chose. You might already like them too, or you might discover something new to dig out and enjoy. That’s the fun of it.

Please note that this list isn’t ranked in any order, nor is it exhaustive. It’s compiled from the opinions of a group of different people, »

Take Me To The Pilots '14: ABC's 'Manhattan Love Story'

16 August 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "Manhattan Love Story" (ABC) The Pitch: "Wouldn't you love to know what young men and women were thinking as they begin to fall in love?" "Good God no." "Oh. Ummm..." Quick Response: About half-way through my viewing of "Manhattan Love Story," my notes read, "Free Analeigh Tipton." And that's not because this allegedly romantic alleged comedy is airing on ABC and therefore offers all of America the chance to enjoy the "America's Next Top Model" veteran for no cost. And it wasn't that I wanted Tipton's doe-eyed naif Dana to be transplanted to a better show, because Dana's basically Dreama Walker's character from "Don't Trust the B**** in Apartment 23" and every other callow transplant in the big city ever depicted on any screen. And what have those characters all been thinking about? Purses! I have no way of knowing if this is true, but it passes for »

Lifetime's 'The Grim Sleeper': Now that's how you make a Lifetime movie

15 March 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

We settled in for "The Grim Sleeper" on Lifetime with a full intent of writing a snarky post about the best lines and most absurd moments. Turns out this is not one of those Lifetime movies, like "She Woke Up Pregnant" or "My Stepson, My Lover."

"The Grim Sleeper" is about a real serial killer who terrorized South-Central Los Angeles from 1985 until 2010, making him the longest active serial killer west of the Mississippi River.

The Sleeper's original reign of terror spanned 1985-88, when the Lapd dubbed him the .25-caliber Killer. He then took a 14-year break and resumed killing in 2002. Once the killings started again, La Weekly fact-checker Christine Pelisek set out to investigate the new murders and discovered their links to the crimes from roughly 15 years prior.

Dreama Walker played Pelisek in the Lifetime movie, which dramatized Pelisek's dogged investigation into the crimes, which is what got the killings »

The Definitive Kubrickian Films: 40-31

4 March 2014 9:28 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As we spend a month looking at the great Stanley Kubrick, we can also look at the filmmakers who were clearly influenced by Kubrick. “Kubrickian” films tend to exercise incredible control of the camera, are extremely ambitious, tend to deal with much weightier themes, and always maintain a sense of mystery, like a there’s an invisible fog always hovering over the film. This list could be sharply focused on about five directors working today but, though a number of these filmmakers appear in this list of 40, we’re spreading the wealth a bit. Let’s get to it.

40. Watchmen (2009)

Directed by Zack Snyder

What makes it Kubrickian? It’s surprisingly cold and detail-oriented, unlike most of Zack Snyder’s other work (well, detail-oriented in a positive way). Watchmen is based on the acclaimed graphic novel of the same name by David Gibbons and Alan Moore, about a desolate alternative »

Wet Behind the Ears: Alaimo’s Suburban Malaise a Standard Procedure

We’ve come to expect a certain amount of functional dysfunction to be featured in independent films depicting the decomposition of nuclear American families all tuckered out by their dogged insistence on living out the illusion of a proscribed way of existence. You can count Jay Alaimo’s latest film, Chlorine, as an overly familiar example of hitting all the customary checkmarks, including a more pressing and dramatic back story used to tie its disparate characters together.

Issues of class and how we’re conditioned to always hunt for loopholes to score upgrades seems to be an overarching theme but between a handful of moments where Alaimo is trying too hard to score pathos or convey information, the film is a stagnant, emotional plateau, managing only to ingrain us with an apathetic attitude towards its characters.
