10 November 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ex-boyfriends. Who needs them? Definitely not Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom).

On Friday’s “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” Rebecca’s two exes get together for the song-and-dance number, “We Tapped That Ass,” that reminisces about all times and all the places, they made sweet, sweet love to her around her house. The routine offered Greg (Santino Fontana) and Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III) to show off some of their amazing footwork.

“‘[We Tapped] That Ass”’is very much kind of a throwback to old Gene Kelly musicals. So we draw our references from all over and it sort of has to serve the joke,” co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna told a group of reporters at a screening for the episode. “And doing an old-school tap number like you would with Gene Kelly or Donald O’Connor, but having it be about tapping someone’s ass. »

‘Jane the Virgin’ Showrunner Defends That Major Love Triangle Upset

24 October 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Warning: The following contains details from the “Jane the Virgin” episode that aired Monday. Read at your own risk.

Jane the Virgin” has a message for Team Rafael: you’re free. No longer will fans of Justin Baldoni’s character need to get upset when it comes to his love triangle with Jane (Gina Rodriguez) and her husband Michael (Brett Dier). That’s because the show finally killed off the love triangle for good when Rafael realized that he no longer had romantic feelings for Jane.

It’s a bold move for the series, which had relied on the love triangle’s tensions since the pilot. Creator Jennie Snyder Urman spoke to reporters after a screening of the episode to discuss the reasons for killing off this reliable romantic comedy trope.

‘Man With a Plan’ Review: Matt LeBlanc’s Fall From Grace Was Foreshadowed on ‘Episodes’

24 October 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the Season 4 finale of “Episodes” — the last entry we’ll see until the final season hits in 2017 — Matt LeBlanc and his friend, Sean Lincoln, are sitting at a bar, mourning his upcoming gig as a game show host. Titled “The Box,” the new series asks seven contestants (or “idiots,” as LeBlanc calls them) to spend 17 weeks trapped inside a glass cube for the chance at fame and fortune. By remaining inside, they earn points that can be used to make their stay easier (i.e., a sandwich) or make their opponents’ lives harder (dumping a boatload of bugs into their cube).

Dear God, why would someone do that?” Sean asks Matt.

“Money,” LeBlanc says. “To be on TV. I don’t know. It’s crazy.”

“Although…”

“What?”

“Well, you’re willing to be a game show host for money and to be on TV.”

“It’s a little bit different. »

‘Rectify’ Review: Season 4 Gives the Unknowable a Voice in Profoundly Moving Final Year

24 October 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

There are moments spread across “Rectify’s” three magnificent seasons that stand out by blending in. Remembering the series is remembering a tone; a feeling; eternity in an instant. For this admiring critic, it’s a static shot of an empty baseball diamond, except for one man sitting in the outfield, or a bar populated by two lovers with more on their minds than each other. For you, it could be any number of scenes filled with more thoughts than words; implications over action; anything that stands out beyond its placement in the plot.

Season 4 features dozens of similar moments within its first two episodes, especially in the first hour spent solely with Daniel Holden (Aden Young). But it also packs a sense of urgency, as though all that time dwelling on the stuff in the basement (as some have described it) has lead to this moment: acceptance or rejection »

‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Showrunner: Rebecca’s Delusions, Her Men and Even Boba Evolve in Season 2

21 October 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Since its premiere, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” has had to balance multiple ambitious intentions: to create musical television with original songs, to sell a relative unknown as its star and to stand out from the rest of the genre programming on The CW. Not only did the Emmy-winning series succeed on all fronts, but it also put an intriguing twist on the romantic comedy genre: interpreting the familiar tropes through the lens of mental health.

While our titular protagonist Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom) may not be literally insane, her behavior does raise questions of her mental stability. After all, she threw away a mid-six figure salaried job in New York for life in the far more humble West Covina, California, just because her childhood ex Josh Chan (Victor Rodriguez III) lives there. But after a season of increasingly erratic behavior, somehow — through magic perhaps? — she finally ended up with Josh in last year’s finale. »

‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ Review: Fox Neutered Its Pelvic Thrust in Underwhelming Remake

20 October 2016 8:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dear weirdos of the world — if you love the original “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” if it changed your life forever, if its musical numbers are embedded in the grooves of your  brain, you probably shouldn’t watch the new Fox remake (subtitled “Let’s Do the Time Warp Again”), airing tonight.

Not that it’s stupefyingly bad, but because if you watch looking for the reasons you love the Jim Sharman-directed 1975 film, you’ll find yourself sorely disappointed.

And if you’re less familiar with the original film, watching this remake will technically introduce you to the premise, but won’t explain the film’s legacy. Here’s a simple explanation for the newest interpretation: The newly engaged Brad (Ryan McCartan) and Janet (Victoria Justice), driving down a rural road, get a flat tire, and go looking for help. »

‘American Horror Story: Roanoke’ Review: Chapter 6 Is a Total Game Changer

Last Week’S Review: ‘American Horror Story: Roanoke’ Review: On To The Next Thing

Fact vs. Fiction

Well, here we are. After wrapping up “My Roanoke Nightmare” last week, “American Horror Story” reveals what will drive the back half of Season 6: found footage. It would be an understatement to say that the found footage sub-genre has been played out in cineplexes in recent years, but after the stultifying docu-series format of the first five episodes, it’s a breath of fresh air. If the goal with the first half of the season was to bore us enough to make us amenable to five episodes of found footage horror, then mission accomplished.

A title card tells us that “My Roanoke Nightmare” was a resounding success, boasting 23 million viewers for its finale and beating “The Walking Dead” in the ratings. (In your dreams, “Ahs.”) Naturally the network is eager to greenlight a sequel, »

‘Chance’ Review: Hugh Laurie Breaks Bad in Hulu’s Mysterious, Introspective Thriller

18 October 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“There are no victims. Only volunteers.”

So claims D (Ethan Suplee), a stoic ex-military type who restores antiques in the backroom of Carl’s (Clarke Peters) San Francisco-based shop. D is full of these kind of succinct insights, but this one in particular stands out in a series titled “Chance,” especially after the new hour-long Hulu drama opens with three separate tragedies seemingly caused by plain ol’ bad luck:

A woman becomes chronically depressed after seeing her father killed in a car accident. A man suffering from brain damage after a rough fall downs a near-fatal combination of household cleaners to “cleanse his body.” A woman who is randomly assaulted by a homeless man suffers irreversible trauma and becomes homeless herself.
