Bones Boss on That X-Files Dig in Finale: 'There Was Some Concern'

29 March 2017 12:42 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The (very) subtle shade is out there.

In Tuesday’s Bones finale, Booth — at the tail end of a moving pep talk he was giving to a demoralized Brennan — attempted to cheer his wife up further by assuring her, “We’re way better than Mulder and Scully.” That was no mere throwaway line. The crack bookended a moment in the show’s pilot 12 years ago when Booth gave the iconic X-Files duo a similar — albeit more effusive — shout-out, telling Brennan, “We’re Scully and Mulder.”

The Best TV Guest Stars Ever — IndieWire Critics Survey

28 March 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Who has been the best guest star on a scripted show?

Tim Surette (@timsurette), TV.com

Wayne Brady showing up in body armor and riding a horse on Syfy’s post-apocalyptic disaster disaster “Aftermath” needs to be mentioned somewhere in this critics’ roundup, so here it is. But I’ll point out two from intentional comedies that come to mind. Timothy Olyphant’s short run on “The Grinder” as himself was fantastic and if I didn’t mention this my coworker Kaitlin would kill me. But my pick goes to David Duchovny, also as himself, on “The Larry Sanders Show.” We’d largely known Duchovny for »

‘Buffy,’ ‘Community,’ ’30 Rock’ and More: TV’s 12 Best Musical Episodes and How Well They Worked in Song and Dance

27 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Musical TV shows like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” or “Glee” have a built-in understanding with audiences that bursting into a song or dance is part of the storytelling. When it comes to non-musical series, however, staging a musical number or episode can be a more challenging when it comes to finding an organic way to work it into the plot.

Recently, The CW’s superhero show “The Flash” and Syfy’s fantasy drama “The Magicians” dipped their toes into the world of musicals. “The Flash” tapped a character called Music Meister (Darren Criss) to knock out Kara and Barry (Melissa Benoit, Grant Gustin) and send them into an alternate reality, where they had to sing and dance their way to finding solutions. Music Meister, a super villain who could control people through music, has already been introduced in the DC Universe via animated series “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” (and voiced »

‘Shut Eye’ Renewed for Season 2 at Hulu, John Shiban to Take Over as Showrunner

20 March 2017 3:25 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hulu has renewed “Shut Eye” for Season 2, but John Shiban will take over as showrunner for the outgoing David Hudgins, Variety has learned. Shiban joining the series will reunite him with the show’s executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, who worked with him on “Breaking Bad.”

Shiban’s most recent credits include writing and producing for the Starz drama “Da Vinci’s Demons” and AMC’s “Hell on Wheels.” He has also worked on “The Vampire Diaries,” “Supernatural,” and “The X-Files.” He also created the short-lived “X-Files” spinoff “The Lone Gunmen.” He is repped by ICM.

The series stars “Burn Notice” alum Jefferey Donovan as Charlie Haverford who, along with his wife Linda (KaDee Strickland), run a chain of fortune-telling parlors, one of which occupies a room in their Los Angeles home.

A lot of their time is spent chafing at the oversight of the Marks family, a Roma clan that strictly enforces its dominion »

The Shield creator on the possibility of a revival

18 March 2017 2:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Reviving old shows seems to be in vogue at the moment, and as his acclaimed cop drama The Shield celebrates its fifteenth anniversary, creator Shawn Ryan has been chatting to EW about the prospect of going down the same route as the likes of The X-Files, 24, Prison Break and Twin Peaks and catching up with Michael Chiklis’ Vic Mackey and the (surviving) police officers of the Farmington district of Los Angeles.

Jay Karnes and Michael Chiklis were over at our house [Ryan’s wife Cathy Cahlin Ryan played Vic’s ex-wife Corrine] a week ago, so it turned into a lot of reminiscing. We’ve all sort of worked and we’ve all enjoyed things we’ve done, but The Shield was a singular pleasure to do. To me, it’s hard not to want to recapture that feeling we all had when we were making the show. But nostalgia is a tricky thing. You’d also like the feel the »

Following last week’s clip and TV spot [watch them here], a new trailer has now arrived online for the upcoming fifth instalment of Michael Bay’s blockbuster Transformers franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight; check it out here…

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, »

New trailer for Neil Gaiman adaptation ‘American Gods’

16 March 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Starz have announced that the highly-anticipated eight-episode first season of American Gods, adapted from Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed contemporary fantasy novel, will make its network premiere on Sunday April 30th.

American Gods posits a different kind of war brewing – one between Old Gods and New. The traditional Old Gods, with mythological roots from around the world, fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the New Gods. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But in truth, Mr. Wednesday is a powerful old deity, on a cross-country mission to build an army and reclaim his lost glory.

Adapted from the award-winning novel, “American Gods” stars Ricky Whittle (“The 100,” “Austenland”) as Shadow Moon; Ian McShane (“Deadwood,” “Ray Donovan”) as »

Following the recent potential departure of a certain “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” character during the Season 12 finale, it’s worth looking at other character departures from some of the best TV series. Looking at comedies, sci-fi, and dramas, its not hard to find a heart-wrenching goodbye

While not a traditional character departure like that of one from a sitcom, one recent goodbye that dealt an emotional blow to its fan base was that of Stefon from “SNL.” The character was a staple on the show for many years, propelling Bill Hader into comedic stardom.

13 March 2017 5:44 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Gillian Anderson is opening up about her long-term struggle with depression.

After releasing a self-help book called We: A Manifesto for Women Everywhere, the 48-year-old actress talked to The Guardian about her struggles with mental health and her road to recovery.

Anderson’s depression stems back to her youth, when she began therapy at age 14 and was voted “Most Likely to Get Arrested” by her high school classmates — a superlative she quickly proved to be correct when she was caught breaking into her school on the night of graduation.

Her new book details many occasions when her mental health problems took over, »

Get Acquainted With Mr. Nancy In New Pic For Starz’s American Gods Series

6 March 2017 3:05 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Meet Mr. Nancy. He’s the African trickster god and one of the many, many deities lining the roster of American Gods, Starz’s live-action interpretation of Neil Gaiman’s celebrated fantasy tome.

Pitched as a fusion of Clash Of The Titans and The Grifters, the series largely revolves around Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), an ex-con looking to make amends after being released from prison. Taken under the wing of Mr. Wednesday (Game of Thrones and John Wick alum Ian McShane), American Gods then follows our protagonist as he navigates the seemingly never-ending battle between gods old and new.

Mr. Nancy (Aka Anansi) hails from the older end of the spectrum, and is the only deity so far to warrant his own novel spinoff, Anansi Boys. Will the fan-favorite go on to headline a TV spinoff? It’s not off the table, according to actor Orlando Jones, who spoke with »
