The 15 Most Disappointing TV Shows of 2016

20 December 2016 6:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

American Crime

In its first season, “American Crime” burst upon the broadcast TV scene with purpose and chutzpah, taking a swan dive into issues and perceptions that most shows avoided. When the show returned for its sophomore outing, it attempted to have the same impact without refining its approach. What may have seemed novel the first time now felt heavy and hackneyed. There was no humor or self-awareness to balance out its juggernaut didacticism: justice does not exist, bad decisions will be made, people suck, and oh, here’s a twist to demonstrate that. If the series’ grimness is the end product, it doesn’t offer much else to the audience other than some fine performances to further amplify the aforementioned suckitude. “American Crime” is so much energy and earnestness gone to waste due to poor execution.

Why I love... actor Andrew Lincoln

25 November 2016 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

His face has undergone such a journey from the 90s drama This Life through seven seasons of The Walking Dead

There are people whose baby photos make you exclaim, “Wow, you have the same face!” But some of us have shifted so far away from the original composition that it’s a little startling to see. I was thinking about this while staring at British actor Andrew Lincoln, whose face has undergone such a journey, and by whom I am still entranced.

Like most Brits of a certain generation, I first saw Lincoln, now 43, in the seminal 1990s drama This Life. As reluctant lawyer and sort-of-slacker Egg, with that earnest, wide-open face, Lincoln drew me in, even though I knew I was too young to be watching the show. By the time he was in Teachers (playing a slacker newbie teacher), his face had shifted to match the character: cocky and funny, »

Blu-ray Review: Carrie (1976) Collector’s Edition

3 November 2016 7:44 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Released 40 years ago today, Brian De Palma’s 1976 adaptation of Stephen King’s debut novel Carrie remains a masterpiece of modern horror. It is a teenage pop nightmare of a film, a dreamy exploration of horrors both real and supernatural. Expertly directed, gorgeously photographed and acted with total sincerity by a cast of then-newcomers, it remains one of the very best King adaptations despite being first out of the gate.

Know how I know De Palma’s Carrie is a brilliant adaptation and one of the best horror movies ever made? Because other filmmakers have tried adapting it three other times across three other decades: Katt Shea in 1999 (with The Rage: Carrie 2, basically a Carrie remake and the best of the lot), David Carson for SyFy in 2002 and, most recently, Kimberly Pierce in 2013. None of them come close to touching the 1976 original.

Teachers: funny, honest, unglamorous comedy drama

A fond look back at UK comedy drama Teachers, starring a pre-The Walking Dead and post-This Life Andrew Lincoln...

Fifteen years ago, Andrew Lincoln wasn’t the guy from The Walking Dead. He wasn’t even the creepy guy from Love Actually (the one with the signs. Not any of the other creepy guys). No, he was the guy from This Life that was getting a show all of his own in which to charm the viewing masses. That show was Teachers. And charm us he did.

Set in a secondary school in Bristol, Teachers was good enough to make us actually want to go back to school – or, for those of us who were still at school when it started, to wonder if some of the ridiculous rumours we were making up about the staff shagging each other might actually be true after all. »

Younger's Sutton Foster Breaks Down That Thad Scene: 'It Was a Shocker'

21 March 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Given its level of sheer insanity, no one would blame you for needing to watch the final scene of last Wednesday’s Younger more than once. In fact, even star Sutton Foster admits to TVLine that she replayed it “about five times.”

“It was a shocker,” Foster says of the moment Kelsey’s fiancé Thad (played by Dan Amboyer) was crushed by fallen scaffolding. “[Creator Darren Star] gave me the episode a few weeks ago to watch; I was in the scene, but I didn’t totally know how it was going to play out. »

The network on Wednesday announced a pilot script order for Heathers, based on the 1988 Winona Ryder/Christian Slater movie of the same name. Curiously, it’s being billed as TV Land’s “first anthology series,” implying that the cast could change season to season, American Horror Story-style.

Does Suits' Mike Deserve Prison Time? Is The Flash's Jay Lying? Is Grimm's Eve Better Than Juliette? And More TV Qs

19 February 2016 11:06 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Castle, The Flash, Suits and How to Get Away With Murder!

James Corden Almost Didn't Host The Late Late Show, Says He Turned Down Job Offer Twice

11 February 2016 10:58 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

James Corden was beyond skeptical about the idea of hosting CBS' The Late Late Show. In an interview with the menswear website Mr. Porter, posted early Thursday, the 37-year-old British star talks about his big career move and relocation from his native England to Los Angeles. Corden took over as the host of The Late Late Show last March, replacing Scottish star Craig Ferguson. Corden's past notable credits at the time included parts on British comedies such as Teachers and Gavin & Stacey. He also hosted the Brit Awards five times, between 2009 and 2014. But it was his performance in the hit Broadway play One Man, Two Guvnors that caught the attention of CBS »

TCA Winter Press Tour 2016: Reboots, Reunions and Steven Avery

21 January 2016 12:57 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Now that a few days have passed since journalists and critics have decamped from Pasadena, Calif. for the annual two-week grind of Television Critics Association winter press tour, Variety‘s TV team has taken stock of the most noteworthy trends.

Sean Penn’s El Chapo interview grabbed headlines, as did his sitdown with Charlie Rose — along with any mention of Donald Trump, “Making A Murderer,” and unintended cast reunions. (No, the “Friends” cast is not getting back together.) But nothing occupied TCA as much as a report on Netflix’s ratings in a presentation by NBC research president Alan Wurtzel — which Netflix chief Ted Sarandos handily dismissed in his exec session as “remarkably inaccurate.”

And then, of course, there was all the usual chatter about “Peak TV,” which has now hit a high of 412 scripted series.

Teachers: Did TV Land's New Comedy Make the Grade?

13 January 2016 8:31 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Somewhere between the first day of kindergarten and the college commencement ceremony, we’ve all racked up a list of teachers we’ve found memorable — for reasons both good and bad.

And now, thanks to TV Land’s Teachers, we’re not sure we can look at those educators the same way again.

The freshman comedy, which debuted Wednesday night, follows six elementary-school instructors as they navigate both their professional and personal lives — and I, for one, will now always wonder whether my second-grade teacher was hooking up with a drug dealer in her free time.

Younger Premiere Recap: Liza's Secret Is Safe — But Is Her Relationship?

13 January 2016 8:01 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Caitlin might have returned from India on Wednesday’s season premiere of Younger, but it was Liza who suffered the real culture shock.

RelatedYounger Renewed for Season 3

Already unsure of her status with Josh — and for good reason, considering I can’t even keep their relationship straight — Liza feared the worst when he cancelled their drink-date because he had to work. And who was his time-consuming client, you ask? Why, none other than Liza’s daughter, now sporting some fresh ink “right on the side boob.” The mother-daughter drama escalated further when Caitlin caught Josh and Liza making out, which »
