Year in Review: Best Character of 2012

21 December 2012 12:52 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

From the Best Episode of 2012 to Best Male Performance, Best Female Performance,  Best Couple, Best Villain, Best Feud and Best New Show, the TV Fanatic staff has spent the week running down the past 12 months on the small screen.

Now, we turn our attention to the fictional personas that make various shows what they are and we ask:

Who was the Best Character of 2012?

Kate Brooks: This Question Is So Hard!! I'm going to say Donna Paulson. Her increased presence in Suits Season 2 was the best thing that show ever did. I want her to be my best friend.

Neal Lynch: I love all the characters on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Dennis Reynolds is a self-destructive sociopath whose life is one big scheme. I look forward to seeing how his character arc concludes.

Matt Richenthal: For being one of the best shows on television, Justified has gone overlooked on this overall countdown. »

The episode will be titled "Reality Star Struck." »

5 Greatest Bars In TV History

7 December 2012 8:02 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

TV is a special place. When we watch television, we essentially let our minds escape into the world of the show we’re watching, whether it’s the mean streets of New York in NYPD Blue, or the mystical island from Lost, we join in the adventure each and every week to see what new and exciting adventure awaits.

Sometimes though, the simplest escape is one we’re all familiar with: the local bar. While some may prefer a warm coffee shop like ‘Central Perk’, bars just seem to be a bit more exciting. Maybe that’s because the people inhabiting these settings are in many ways ‘letting loose’, and maybe it’s because drunk people are always worth a laugh.

So, where is the best place to enjoy a beverage in TV land? Allow me to be your guide as we take a look at five of the best bar hangouts in television history. »

How the Dogme manifesto reinvented Denmark

Be truthful, be human, get naked: 1995's groundbreaking manifesto didn't just shake up cinema. It inspired Danes to make the world's best TV, buildings and food (if you like fried mould with your grasshopper)

• Interview with Thomas Vinterberg

'Il est merde!" yelled Mark Kermode, from the back of the cinema. "It is shit!" The year was 1998 and Kermode – then Radio 1's film critic – had not taken kindly to that year's Cannes film festival. Specifically, he was narked by a new work by Lars von Trier called The Idiots, a film shot with shaky cameras that centred on an orgy-loving group of rebels who, in public, acted like people with mental disabilities.

The Idiots was one of the first films to emerge from the Dogme 95 movement. Three years earlier, its ringleader Von Trier had stood up at a Paris conference and showered its audience with pamphlets. These were the bigwigs of »

History Teams With ‘Hatfields & McCoys’ Producer And Writer For Texas Rangers Mini

14 November 2012 3:43 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: On the heels of the blockbuster success of Hatfields & McCoys, History has teamed with two key auspices behind the miniseries — executive producer Leslie Greif and co-writer Ted Mann — for another six-hour mini set during America’s turbulent 19th century. History is developing Texas Rising, a miniseries about the formation and rise of the Texas Rangers, the oldest law enforcement organization in North America. It will chronicle the force’s humble beginnings — its creation was triggered by a call-to-arms penned by Stephen F. Austin in 1823 — as well as its role during Texas’ secession from the U.S. during the Civil War. Mann will write the mini, with Greif executive producing. Mann, repped by Apa and attorney Tom Hoberman, recently joined the second season of Starz’ period drama Magic City after serving as co-executive producer on the pay cable network’s first drama series Crash and the upcoming Da Vinci’s Demons. »

Southland: this overlooked cop show is well worth a watch

14 November 2012 8:29 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Rough-edged La crime drama Southland has more depth than the average cop show, and complex, believable characters – not to mention an excellent performance from Lucy Liu

Elementary may have proved to be mildly diverting procedural fun, rather than a dramatic match for its British counterpart Sherlock, but among the Us show's positives has been the return of Lucy Liu to TV screens as the icy, occasionally amused Joan Watson.

After a period where she became best known for voicing a snake in Kung Fu panda, it's good to see Liu back centre stage. But Watson isn't her only current TV role that demands attention – she's even better in the unfairly overlooked cop show Southland, which begins its fourth season on More4 this week.

As Officer Jessica Tang, Liu takes a character who could have been seen as little more than a bundle of quirks with a troubled past and makes her entirely understandable. »

Eric Bana May Beware The Night

10 November 2012 9:16 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Cops are a hardy perennial when it comes to movie fodder. And horror is likewise a powerhouse genre. So it makes you wonder why the two don’t get combined more often. Scott Derrickson is currently developing just such a mash-up with police paranormal thriller Beware The Night. It appears he’s close to recruiting a lead, as Eric Bana is in talks to star.If he signs, Bana would play a New York police officer who investigates real life demon possessions, exorcisms and other supernatural creatures, including werewolves. Sounds a little like The X-Files meets NYPD Blue.Derrickson co-wrote the script with regular collaborator Paul Boardman, and Screen Gems is backing the movie. Mark Wahlberg was the first name courted for the lead gig, but he’s decided not to take it on - perhaps because his full schedule now also includes Transformers 4. Hence Bana being called.The actor, »

Flashback To When David Milch Didn't Think Black Writers Could Write For Mainstream Audiences

It's a slow news day today, and with good reason - it's Election Day. And I'm manning (or womanning in my case) the site in the meantime, while others handle their civic duties, and other matters. Very loooong lines at polling statings I hear. Anyway, here's something that I dug up that I thought was worth sharing to get some conversation going. Some of you will probably remember this story; I actually only heard about it for the first time recently.

What Do Antiheroes Mean For Today’s American TV Series?

21 October 2012 9:17 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist

***

When a new TV series, especially a drama, begins, it’s assumed to have one specific ingredient in its recipe for greatness: the antihero.

On any given night of the week, you can find an endless amount of antiheroes to choose from, including Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) from HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) of ABC’s Revenge and Hank Moody (David Duchovny) in Showtime’s Californication.

So what’s an antihero? An antihero is the protagonist of a show, but instead of expectedly being noble and fighting for the good of all, he or she has, as James Poniewozik of Time says, “goals you did not relate to, whom a decent person would, by and large, not cheer for.”

Despite this disagreement, viewers share the protagonist’s point of view or largely follow the antihero, eventually seeing sympathetic and relatable aspects »
