'Nobody Knows Anything' as 'The Sopranos' season 1 heads into great home stretch

19 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the latest installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the eleventh episode, “Nobody Knows Anything," coming up just as soon it's 1954 inside this house... "This is our friend we're talking about here." -Tony After "A Hit Is A Hit" put most of the bigger season 1 stories on pause, "Nobody Knows Anything" presses play on one of the »

Even the director of 'Crash' wouldn't have voted for it for Best Picture

11 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sunday night at 8, HBO debuts the first two hours of "Show Me a Hero," a new miniseries co-written by "The Wire" creator David Simon and directed by Paul Haggis, an Emmy and Oscar-winning writer and sometime director, whose movie "Crash" won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2006. Last month, Haggis and I had a long talk about his career, his shifts between movies and television, and "Show Me a Hero." It was a really interesting conversation, and I recommend reading the whole thing. That said, I know how the internet works, and I know that one passage of the interview would overwhelm all discussion of the rest of it, so I'm making this separate post just on that portion, in which we discuss the controversies over "Crash," its depiction of race relations, and the many people — Paul Haggis included, it turns out — who don't think it should have won Best Picture that year. »

'Show Me a Hero' director Paul Haggis on Oscars, TV, and his love of 'The Wire'

11 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The very first pilot I watched on this job was for a CBS drama called "Ez Streets." Created by Paul Haggis — then best known for creating "Due South," but most commercially successful for having helped develop the "Walker, Texas Ranger" pilot — it was essentially an HBO drama before such a thing existed: dark, dense, ambitious, heartbreaking, and addictive. It even featured Joe Pantoliano playing a sociopath gangster years before he won an Emmy for it on "The Sopranos" (and was, to my mind, better as Jimmy Murtha than as Ralphie Ciffaretto). It was also the first time I got my heart broken in this job. Despite rave reviews from me and my more established colleagues across the country, "Ez Streets" was Doa: CBS pulled it off the air after only two episodes had aired, and though most of the remaining episodes would air the following winter, it was just running out the string. »
