What Makes a Great TV Series Finale?

29 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What makes a good series finale? Three events this week bring this question into focus: Sunday's "True Blood" series ender, Monday's celebration of the departed "Breaking Bad" at the Emmys, and Wednesday's Vox interview with David Chase, where the "Sopranos" creator finally offered an answer to the question of whether Tony died at the end of the notorious blackout finale of the 1999-2007 series.

All three of these finales, plus others of shows that went off the air this year ("Dexter," "How I Met Your Mother") drew both kudos and complaints. Some fans found these finales satisfying and others found them cheap copouts. It almost makes you sorry for the writers, who seem bound to disappoint some faction of fans, no matter how they choose to wrap things up.

Take "True Blood," for instance. (Warning: Spoilers follow.) Fans who'd been watching since the beginning of the HBO series seven years »

Watch: Dad Is A Woman In Trailer For Jill Soloway's Amazon Series 'Transparent'

28 August 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Amazon has released the trailer for its new dramedy “Transparent,” about an L.A. family dealing with the late-in-life decision of their father (Jeffrey Tambor) to live as a woman. Could this be the show that will catapult Amazon into the Netflix-sphere, where original online content like “Orange Is The New Black” and “House of Cards” wins awards and better yet subscribers? With a fresh and exciting cast including Gaby Hoffman, Jay Duplass, and Amy Landecker as the couple's children, Judith Light as Tambor’s ex-wife, and Carrie Brownstein in a small role, it very well could. The pilot debuted on Amazon in February and received enough buzz and acclaim to for the series to be greenlit, with Amazon likely seeing this as a strong contender to become must-watch material. Tambor helped draw the binge-watching crowd with Netflix’s “Arrested Development” revival, and creator Jill Soloway (“United States of Tara, »

‘Transparent’, the new Amazon series from Jill Soloway, gets a trailer and release date

28 August 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The past few years has seen a rise in online streaming content, as services like Netflix and Yahoo have begun to create their own original content as well as pick up shows cancelled by networks. Amazon has similarly diversified into the streaming market, with their own twist; they often release a number of pilots online, letting their viewers vote on which of them shall get a series order. One of the successful pickups from their last set was Transparent. Created by Jill Soloway, who has previously written for Six Feet Under and United States of Tara, as well as writing and directing the 2013 feature Afternoon Delight, the series stars Jeffrey Tambor, Melora Hardin, Gaby Hoffmann, and Jay Duplass. The show focuses on the trials and tribulations of a family as the patriarch comes out as a transgendered individual. Amazon has now announced that the series first 10-episode season will be »

First Trailer: Will Jeffrey Tambor's Transparent Be Amazon's First Big Hit?

Is Amazon about to score its first breakthrough hit?

The online streaming giant — whose foray into original programming has yet to yield any Netflix-sized hits — may have a game-changer on its hands with Transparent, a 10-episode dark comedy from Six Feet Under’s Jill Soloway and starring Arrested Development‘s Jeffrey Tambor as Maura né Mort Pfefferman, the transgender patriarch of a Los Angeles family.

Exclusive: Jeffrey Tambor transitions in emotional 'Transparent' trailer

27 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

All parents have their secrets. Some smoke cigarettes behind their childrens’ backs; others lie about their past recreational drug use. In Amazon’s Transparent though, Jeffrey Tambor’s Mort has a much bigger secret: As one of his children, played by Gaby Hoffmann says, “Dad is a woman.”

Mort’s three grown children are finding out their father’s identity for the first time while their mom is more aware of her spouse’s feminine taste—although she’s under the impression it’s a simple game of dress-up. “It’s his thing; it’s his little private kink,” Mort’s wife, »

Masters of Sex Ep. 2.07 “Asterion” pulls the series out of the ’50s

26 August 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Masters of Sex, Season 2, Episode 7, “Asterion”

Written by David Flebotte and Michelle Ashford

Directed by Michael Dinner

Airs Sundays at 10pm (Et) on Showtime

It seems this is the year creative time skips became an unexpected fashion in television. Both True Detective and Fargo pulled off the unprecedented move of jumping forward in time in the middle of an episode, and now Masters of Sex has one-upped them both by performing several jumps in the same episode! My knowledge of TV history is far from comprehensive, but I can’t think of any other show that’s done something like this before (except for a few episodes of The Simpsons, in which time is a… malleable concept, to say the least). Of course, multiple series have ended on greatest hits montages in their final episodes (Six Feet Under, for instance), but to my knowledge, no one has plopped an episode »

‘Ninja Turtles': What Happened to the Actress Who Played the Original April O’Neil?

8 August 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This weekend, Megan Fox plays April O’Neil in Paramount’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” but she’s not the first actress to portray the character. In 1990, Judith Hoag originated the role of the intrepid reporter who befriends the pizza-loving heroes, although she almost turned down the part. “When I first heard of it, I thought it was a horror film,” Hoag recalls on a recent telephone call with Variety. “‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ is such a strange name. I wasn’t into the comic books at all.”

Hoag, 22 at the time, was in the middle of shooting the Robin Williams comedy “Cadillac Man,” and her schedule prevented her from committing to “Ninja Turtles.” Then the producers were able to make it work, and Hoag had to fly from New York to Wilmington, North Carolina, on the weekends for production. “People would be wondering where I would racing off to on a Friday, »

The Leftovers Recap: Just Shoot Me

3 August 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This week, The Leftovers gave us another single-perspective episode, focusing on Nora Durst. This episode was less tense than Matt’s — no beating of thieves to a pulp, no race-against-the-clock climax — but I still enjoyed it more than the recent ensemble episodes. Maybe part of the problem with the ensemble episodes is that we don’t see enough of these characters to get to know them. I stand by my opinion that not enough is happening in this show, but that might matter less if I cared more about the characters. I keep thinking about Six Feet Under. That show wasn’t driven by a great overarching mystery, either, but it still felt driven: by our fascination with the Fishers, our concern for them, our love for them.The principal characters in The Leftovers have compelling stories, but I’m somehow not compelled. I keep wondering: Why now? Out of »

Review: 'The Leftovers' - 'Guest'

3 August 2014 7:56 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "The Leftovers" coming up just as soon as you shoot me... "Guest" offers us our second single-pov episode of the season, and if it's not as intense or disorienting a ride as the story of Matt's big night at the casino, it's still a valuable and fascinating portrait of what life would be like for someone who lost so much in the Departure. Nora's been a background character until now, interacting briefly with her brother, with Kevin and with some fellow "legacies," but this is the first extended time we've spent with her (just as episode 3 was the first — and to date only — significant spotlight on Matt). There have been hints that she's actually doing much better than the image the town has of her, but also signs that her grief is very real, and more bottomless than anything any members of the Garvey family are going through. »
