Review: 'Hill Street Blues: The Complete Series' on DVD

28 April 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Late in the DVD commentary for the pilot episode of "Hill Street Blues," actor Joe Spano marvels at the show's impact on the medium. "It's extraordinary," he says, "the repercussions of this 48 minutes of television." The cop drama's co-creator Steven Bochco follows by suggesting, "It's sort of a family tree, and if you look at the branches of the tree, you'll see 25 years of television." Bochco is, if anything, underselling the importance of "Hill Street," which is on the short list of the most influential TV shows ever made. Whether through shared actors, writers, directors or through stylistic and thematic complexity, its DNA can be found in nearly every great drama produced in the 30-plus years since it debuted. The show was only occasionally interested in the legal trials of the criminals in its unnamed fictional city, but the complete series DVD set (it arrives in stores on Tuesday, for »

'Those Who Kill': Chloe Sevigny and James D'Arcy track down '21st century monsters'

3 March 2014 2:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Sitting in a posh hotel suite in Pasadena, Calif., James D'Arcy, British star of the A&E Network serial-killer drama "Those Who Kill," premiering Monday, March 3, recalls taking the first-time plunge into an open-ended TV series.

"The nature of television is you have a vague idea of where you're going, but that can change," he tells Zap2it. "It's the first time I've done something where I don't know what the end was when I accepted the role. It's the first time I've done anything where I didn't read all the scripts."

"That's always challenging for me as well," says his co-star, Chloe Sevigny, who's done film, stage and TV series ("Big Love," "Hit & Miss," "American Horror Story: Asylum"). "You don't have any control."

Luckily, both are doing a show with a TV veteran at the helm. Glen Morgan ("Wiseguy," "The X-Files," "Millennium," "Bionic Woman") adapted it from the Danish »

'Community's' Joel McHale: 'We are 'The Wire' of comedy'

2 January 2014 5:30 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Love may be all you need to keep a "Community" together, but having its founder back in the house, and an Emmy or two, might also be nice.

Well, one out of two ain't bad.

Anyone arriving at the Paramount soundstage in Hollywood during production of the fifth season of the NBC comedy "Community," premiering Thursday, Jan. 2, will see a large banner with a picture of an Emmy and the words, "Congratulations, 0 Emmy Nominations" above the show logo.

"We won the Critics' Choice Award," says series star Joel McHale to Zap2it, referring to the show's win as best comedy for 2012 in the second annual honors from the Broadcast Television Journalist Association, "which was thrilling, because it was the critics, and they really watch the show.

"I defer to just saying we are 'The Wire' of comedy."

Also, like HBO's cops-and-crooks drama, "Community" is essentially the creation of one writer. »
