Five Things You Didn’t Know about The It Crowd’s Douglas Reynholm

31 August 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Douglas Reynholm is both the head and the owner of Reynholm Industries in The It Crowd. His success is less a result of his own capabilities and more a result of him having been born to the right parents, which has contributed to his host of unpleasant tendencies. Regardless, Douglas is one of the most popular characters on The It Crowd, which is perhaps unsurprising considering the critical role of dark humor in British comedic sensibilities. Here are five things that you may or may not have known about Douglas Reynholm: His Family Name Is Not a Real Family Name

The Great British Bake Off: could do with a bit more time in the oven

26 August 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The recipe for the show has barely changed following the move to Channel 4, yet it is missing the sprinkle of chemistry that made it such a hit on the Beeb

Related: Prepare for the best series of Bake Off yet, says judge Paul Hollywood

As Noel Fielding descends on The Great British Bake Off (29 August, 8pm, Channel 4) in a hot-air balloon, dressed as a goth Willy Wonka, a terrible, amusing possibility occurs. Is he about to infect Bake Off – the TV equivalent of comfort food – with the maverick sensibility of The Mighty Boosh’s Vince Noir or The It Crowd’s Richmond? This would represent a gambit of considerable bravery given the huge furore generated by the show’s big-money move from BBC1 to Channel 4.

'The Tick' Star Recalls the Time Donald Trump Sent Him a Warning Message (and Woke up His Family)

16 August 2017 1:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

After two decades as a regular — and mostly comedic — face (and voice) in U.K. film and TV (The It Crowd, Shaun of the Dead), not to mention parts in Guardians of the Galaxy (as the Nova Corps’ distinctly not amused Garthan Saal) and Spy (as handsy Italian spy Aldo), Peter Serafinowicz is finally getting his first major lead role. 

In The Tick, the British actor, writer and funnyman — who also famously voiced Darth Maul in the first Star Wars prequel — has squeezed himself into the blue rubber suit of Ben Edlund’s square-jawed superhero for Amazon’s eight-part »

‘Get Shorty’ Review: This Smart Take on Elmore Leonard Will Make You Forget All About Chili Palmer

13 August 2017 1:39 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Elmore Leonard doesn’t make adaptations easy. The many successful films and one great TV show produced from the renowned author’s work seem to indicate otherwise, but for every “Out of Sight” and “Justified,” there’s a “Killshot” and “Karen Sisco.”

Now, after a hailed novel and two feature films, “Get Shorty” becomes the latest Leonard crime story to get the series treatment, and it’s a lot closer in quality to its titular inspiration than its lesser sequel, “Be Cool.” But aside from being pretty darn good, this take goes its own way.

Anyone familiar with the 1990 book or 1995 film will certainly recognize the plot, but creator Davey Holmes’ new show isn’t doing an impression; not on any level. From the casting to the construction, this version of “Get Shorty” is its own beast. The hour-long drama may not be the next big breakout in the golden age of TV, »

The 25 Best TV Comedy Ensembles of the Last 25 Years, Ranked

9 August 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A great ensemble creates a mysterious bond between a show and its viewers. The chemistry shared on screen brings with it a certain level of comfort.

But to refer to this quality as some kind of supernatural power does a disservice to the men and women who forge it. There is the talent of each individual performer to consider: If any of them falter, the whole dynamic falls apart. It’s a dynamic that requires work, too. Whether it’s bonding in real-life or being a good listener on set, chemistry is a science for these casts; it’s made, not found.

Then there’s the versatility of expanding these connections beyond just one or two cast members, but an entire ensemble of six or so series regulars. The best ensembles work no matter who’s paired up in a scene, and it feels like the TV can barely contain »

The Best Underdog Networks and Streaming Services You Should Be Watching — IndieWire Critics Survey

8 August 2017 9:34 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television 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: Which lesser known network or streaming service deserves more love? Why?

Damian Holbrook (@damianholbrook), TV Guide Magazine

I just wrote about this for TVInsider.com! Recently, I am obsessed with truTV, which has unleashed two of my favorite summer programs: “The Chris Gethard Show” and Andrea Savage’s perfect “I’m Sorry.” The first is the “Pee Wee’s Playhouse” of live late-night talk shows featuring the supremely likable comedian and the second, sort of a “Curb Your Enthusiasm” for suburban marrieds, Finally gives Savage a chance to carry a show after years of scene-stealing support. Originally designed as a true-crime network, the rebranding to comedy (and edgy comedy at that! »

The BBC have cancelled Count Arthur Strong

Kirsten Howard Aug 8, 2017

Series 3 of Graham Linehan and Steve Delaney's Count Arthur Strong will be its last, the BBC have revealed...

Sad news for fans of Count Arthur Strong, we're afraid: the BBC have decided not to pursue a fourth series of the cult show.

"There are no current plans for a further series of Count Arthur Strong on the BBC," a BBC spokesman said, with a source adding, "It's just sadly reached the end of the line for now. Count Arthur Strong is such a loved character amongst the fans, I'm sure he'll live on beyond the series."

From Del Boy’s cap to Steve Martin’s arrow – what happened to the comedy trademark?

7 August 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Comedians once embraced a signature quip or look, so why have such tropes fallen out of favour?

Related: Stand down: when comics make unfunny big-screen comedies

Imagine a museum devoted to the iconography of comedy. There would be glass cases containing Del Boy’s flat cap, Father Ted’s dog collar and a perfectly preserved set of fork handles. There’d be an animatronic mannequin of Basil Fawlty, performing his impression of the Führer on a permanent loop. And on the public address system, echoing around the exhibits, a collection of immortal catchphrases: “Suits you, sir … You stupid boy … I don’t Believe it.”

The Crystal Maze 2017 episode 1 review

The Crystal Maze is back with a new Maze Master, a new Futuristic Zone, and all the fun of the original...

You can question TV’s current Rosebud-like obsession with stuff that used to make us happy as kids all you like; the truth is that watching Richard Ayoade being wry to people dressed like ghostbusters is just good medicine. Watching Richard Ayoade in salmon pink corduroy being wry to minor celebrities dressed like ghostbusters is excellent medicine.

Drop What You're Doing and Start Binge-Watching These British Shows

12 June 2017 3:05 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

I'm not saying television is my religion or anything, but it is a persistent and omnipresent force in my life. I mean, there's nothing better than wasting my time eating Chinese food and watching a variety of random episodes of random shows. I've been doing this for years and years now, and we don't need to get into specifics or anything, but trust me: I've had a lot of time on my hands, and I've watched a lot of shows. Because of this, I've discovered a bunch of gems. One of my favorite things to look out for are British TV shows, both old and new. They always stand out - British television seasons are shorter and therefore all the more easier to binge; they're not shy about profanity, nudity, and all that other stuff I like; and, they're often wonderfully diverse. There are the old standards of British telly - Downton Abbey, »
