TV Review: Cristela’s So-So, But Cristela Is Great

10 October 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Cristela the show is a competent though predictable multi-camera comedy, with the sort of stock characters you'd expect: the disapproving mom, the bimbo co-worker, the precocious child, the neighbor who always swings by. It's by-the-book, and the book is called Home Improvement, Grace Under Fire, and the ABC Stand-Up–Centric Sitcom Style of Yesteryear. But Cristela the performer — stand-up comedian Cristela Alonzo, who created and stars in the series — is so engaging and funny, you barely notice that the show around her is just so-so.Alonzo stars as the titular character, who's in her sixth year of law school and just landed a prestigious internship at a fancy firm. She's saving money by living with her sister and brother-in-law, their two kids, and her mother, though it's an occasional point of friction. At home, she butts heads with her chronically disappointed mom (Terri Hoyos), the brother-in-law who wishes she'd move »

Need a Vacation? Take It Online with Your Favorite Classic Sitcoms!

28 July 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Summer means two things for most Americans: A family trip and a lack of decent TV. However, if you're currently stuck at home, wishing you could find something better to watch, we've got an easy, free solution. You can just ride along with your favorite sitcom of choice! Remember when sitcoms regularly had group vacations, played out over a series of episodes or even over two-hour movie events? Sure, Modern Family still does an "away" adventure about once per season, but there was a time when a vacation episode was a full-fledged TV event. Shows you loved would ditch the »

Monday TV: Mom's the Word, and Warehouse 13 Opens One Last Time

14 April 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

All season long, I've been likening CBS's freshman sleeper Mom to gritty sitcom foremothers like Roseanne and Grace Under Fire (shows on which executive producer Chuck Lorre famously spent time before his current CBS heyday). That comparison rings especially true in the first-season finale (Monday, 9:30/8:30c), as third-generation mom-too-soon Violet (Sadie Calvano) gives birth while her own imperfect mother, Christy (Anna Faris), and caustic grandma Bonnie (Allison Janney) look on with emotional empathy.

The Definitive Original Screenplays: 50-41

16 February 2014 9:17 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

What makes a brilliant script? Is it quotable lines? Is it nuanced dialogue? Or is it just the ability to move the story along and not get in the way? When looking back through the history of screenwriting, there are plenty of iconic films based on previous work; the Writer’s Guild of America voted Casablanca the greatest screenplay of all time, but it’s adapted. So, what is the most important piece of film writing ever written directly for the screen? This list will shift from American to international, conventional to unconventional. Most importantly, these are the scripts that demonstrate how “screenwriting from scratch” is done.

‘Castle’: Grace Under Fire

6 January 2014 8:25 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of Castle Season 6, Episode 11. There will be Spoilers.]

-

Happy New Year Castle fans! The winter solstice break is over, which means it’s time for Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) to head back to work with the rest of us. And the episode wastes no time setting the pace and keeping the tension high until right at the very end.

You know it’s gonna be a bumpy ride when the words “12 hours later” appear halfway through the opening scene right after a frantic and very pregnant Jenny (Juliana Dever) calls Kate to ask about her husband. The flaming building behind Kate is something of a bad omen, too.

Under Fire’ explores a few different things as the ...
