FX doesn't submit 'Fargo' as 'Transparent,' 'True Detective' lead WGA TV nominations

4 December 2014 5:49 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Writers Guild of America announced the TV nominees for the 2015 WGA Awards on Thursday (December 4) morning and several new shows broke into the fields in a big way. And, of course, there were a number of big WGA Award nomination head-scratchers. Specifically, where the heck was FX's "Fargo"? The answer is below. Making perhaps the biggest splash was "Transparent," which earned three nominations and, since "Orange Is The New Black" earned two nods and "House of Cards" pick up one, that meant that Amazon Prime and Netflix are, at least for one award-giving organization, on equal footing as creators of original programming. The Jill Soloway-created "Transparent" is nominated for New Series, where it will go against "The Affair," "The Knick," "Silicon Valley" and "True Detective." "Transparent" and "Silicon Valley" are also up for Comedy Series, going against "Louie," "Veep" and "Orange Is The New Black." Lest you panic »

Boardwalk Empire, Ep. 5.07: “Friendless Child” laments its losses and rhymes like poetry

19 October 2014 10:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Boardwalk Empire Season 5, Episode 7: “Friendless Child”

Written by Riccardo Diloreto, Cristine Chambers and Howard Korder

Directed by Allen Coulter

Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on HBO

Three seasons ago Enoch “Nucky” Thompson met his former protege, Jimmy Darmody, in a dusty field and told him that he wasn’t seeking redemption. And then he shot him in the head. Twice.

Things have changed.

In the ten years since that fateful night, the second of two life-changing moments for Nucky, Atlantic City’s former treasurer has found himself worn down like a statue on the shore. Each and every role of the tide has taken a little bit of him away, and now there’s nothing left but a sad old man who yearns to be a simple and decent person again.

In this sense, the irony of the past and present segments of “Friendless Child” rhyme like the alternating schemes of poetry. »

Boardwalk Empire, Ep. 5.04: “Cuanto” is Margaret’s finest hour

29 September 2014 1:34 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Boardwalk Empire, Season 5, Episode 4: “Cuanto”

Written by Howard Korder & Cristine Chambers & Terence Winter

Directed by Jake Paltrow

Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on HBO

With “Cuanto” we mark the halfway point of the final season, and its first major death. As fans of Boardwalk will attest, though, the only real surprise was that it took as long as it did. If you were running the numbers in Vegas, or Atlantic City for that matter, the odds would come up quick that there will likely be a lot more to come. If only Arnold Rothstein was still around to roll the dice on that one.

Speaking of Rothstein, his former business partner arrived as the game-changer in last weeks episode, leaving this week to make good. Luckily she does at that. In fact, Margaret emerges as the star of the show in “Cuanto”, and it’s not hard to see why. »

Boardwalk Empire, Ep. 5.03: “What Jesus Said” consists mainly of setup

21 September 2014 11:03 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Boardwalk Empire, Season 5, Episode 3: “What Jesus Said”

Written by Cristine Chambers and Howard Korder

Directed by Ed Bianchi

Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on HBO

As we approach the halfway point for Boardwalk Empire‘s final season, we are given an underwhelming, if somewhat eventful, episode.

“What Jesus Said” opens with Chalky and his loose cannon partner breaking into the house of  the latter’s former employer. In what is easily the low point of the episode, Chalky’s plot consists of balancing precariously between his edgy accomplice, Milton, and the mother and daughter whom they have taken hostage. Although on paper, the idea might sound engaging, it plays out in a mostly uninspired manner due to the fact that Chalky isn’t given a whole lot to do. These scenes, which take up roughly 1/3 of the main plots explored this week, consist widely of three other characters who »
