If you are missing the TV cast that made up the drama Friday Night Lights, you may have been a little less sad at the end of last week. On March 20, Netflix began streaming its newest series, Bloodline, which stars Kyle Chandler as the lead character. Chandler spent five seasons playing everyone’s favorite football coach, Eric Taylor, on Friday Night Lights and will now be playing John Rayburn on the mysterious Netflix drama, which is about a group of adult siblings whose secrets from their childhood are exposed when one of the brothers returns. All 13 episodes from the first season have been released, so you can binge-watch this series the same way you do with other popular Netflix shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. Kyle Chandler has been starring on television for over twenty five years. Here is a look back of some of those popular roles. »

Gary McCurry reviews the first episode of Bloodline…
Changing his mind, Danny Rayburn (Ben Mendelsohn) takes the speech in his hand and places it back in the pocket from which it came. “To the Rayburn’s!” he shouts. His audience at the annual gathering held in the picturesque family-owned getaway in Florida breathe a silent sigh of relief before completing the toast with their cheers.
Netflix bring us Bloodline, a new show that will make your dysfunctional family look like the Brady Brunch in comparison.
I’ll try to keep the spoilers to a minimum here, be warned though, some may surface.
For Friday Night Lights alumni, Kyle Chandler, it’s less “clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” and more “dark lies, new starts, family blues” as he takes on the role of John Rayburn. Chandler’s voice narrates the story, beginning with a long monologue that could be labelled as generic. »

Hulu is getting into the Jason Katims business — and vice versa — by ordering straight to series The Way, a 10-episode drama about a family at the center of a controversial faith-based movement, and its struggles with relationships, marriage and power.
The series marks the Parenthood/Friday Night Lights showrunner’s first non-network project. Parenthood scribe/producer Jessica Goldberg will write and exec-produce The Way, along with Katims and Michelle Lee.
With ABC's Nashville's uncertain future, comes good news for fans of actress Connie Britton. The Hollywood Reporter stated today that the former Friday Night Lights star has signed on to join the cast of FX's new project American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. The project is being lead by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Murphy tweeted about the news earlier today: "Excited to announce my friend Connie Britton will play Faye Resnick in the upcoming FX miniseries The People v. O.J. Simpson." Britton last worked with Murphy during the freshman season of American Horror Story: Murder House. »

After adding another hit sitcom to its lineup thanks to the launch and immediate success of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Netflix has bolstered its dramatic offerings as well. The streaming video on-demand service has debuted the first season of Bloodline, which debuted in its entirety on March 20th.
Bloodline, set in Key West, Florida, stars Kyle Chandler as John Rayburn, who is one of four siblings. When his older brother Danny (Ben Mendelsohn) returns home, it sparks family drama that defines the series. The first season spans 13 episodes, all of which released simultaneously on Netflix.
On the surface, Bloodline is another enticing drama from the platform that has already attracted audiences with House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. More than that, though, this is Netflix's clearest "Emmy-bait" series yet. Chandler, the star, is best known for his role on Friday Night Lights, for which he won an Emmy »

We know it’s hard to believe, but the last episode of Glee ~*eVeR*~ airs tonight. The New Directions have given us an incredible six years of singing, dancing, and awkward teen sexual tension, but it’s time for them to leave the show choir room for good. Admittedly, the most recent seasons of Glee haven’t been that great (this season especially, with its self-referencing jokes and out-of-control fat-shaming). However, we can’t let Ryan Murphy’s inability to craft a third act stop us from honoring Glee. When it was good, it was really fucking good. And, more importantly, it changed culture forever.
From putting gay teens on primetime to introducing us to living Ken doll/actual sex god Darren Criss, Glee wasn’t afraid to go where television had never been before. It broke racial, sexual, and gender boundaries — not to mention it brought the musical back in a big way. »

Meet the Rayburns, the family central to Netflix’s meditative, intriguing and well-acted new drama Bloodline.
There’s John (Friday Night Lights‘ Kyle Chandler), the sibling so upright he eventually became sheriff of the Florida Keys town in which he grew up. There’s Kevin (Broadway’s Norbert Leo Butz), the scruffy seadog with a big laugh. There’s Meg (ER‘s Linda Cardellini), the family peacemaker. Finally, there’s oldest child Danny (The Dark Knight Rises‘ Ben Mendelsohn), the volatile, disappointing family screw-up.
And by the end of the hour, thanks to flash-forwards, we watch one member of the »
Whether or not you happened to be a fan, it's hard to deny that "Damages" was, in many ways, ahead of its time. "Damages" was intensely serialized within seasons, but then each season was largely a reboot, bringing in a handful of big name supporting actors to play along with Glenn Close and Rose Byrne. FX chief John Landgraf admitted that it was a hard show for the network to handle and maintain, because viewers couldn't jump in midway through a season and other viewers would store up three or four or 13 episodes and then plow through them well after the Nielsen measuring windows circa 2009 were closed. In effect, "Damages" was a show designed for binge-viewing and anthology storytelling at a time when being a binge-favorite would get you cancelled by FX and shuffled off to DirecTV. [FX was also a producer on "Damages," which incentivized them to keep the show going in some form, even if it wasn't working in the landscape of that moment.] "Damages" creators Todd A. Kessler, Glenn Kessler and Daniel Zelman didn't know it at the time, »

Clear eyes, full hearts, finish that piece of cake! Yes, that really could be something you hear at your next birthday party 'cause Friday Night Lights' Coach Taylor/our ultimate TV fictional husband Kyle Chandler is totally up providing the entertainment at your next birthday party. Or even a slightly more scandalous event. The man's talents knows no bounds. When E! News caught up with the Emmy winner to chat about his amazing new Netflix series Bloodlines, we had to know if people still come up to him and ask for some of Coach Taylor's signature words of wisdom. Oh, and if he wouldn't mind ever hoping on the phone when we need some motivation of the Coach-variety. "I don't »
Thoughts on last night's "Empire" season finale coming up just as soon as I clutch your pearls... Since last we discussed it (when I had only seen the very first episode), "Empire" has exploded from a promising show into the biggest phenomenon network TV has seen in a decade (going back to the season of "Desperate Housewives," "Lost" and "Grey's Anatomy"). Its ratings climbed almost every week it was on the air (overnight ratings aren't in as I write this, but Fox's former scheduling chief suggests they went waaaaay up for the finale) as it became The Show That Launched a Thousand Think Pieces. Was it feeding a ravenous appetite for a primetime soap set in the world of hip-hop? For a drama with a predominantly African American cast? Did people just want to see Taraji P. Henson wear fur jackets and tell people to kick rocks? As with any phenomenon, »

Longmire is an absolute anomaly in the world of television, which could have something to do with the fact that it was pulled from A&E, despite consistently high ratings for the network. It’s also the reason that it was something of a no-brainer that it would be picked up by someone else, and season four will air on Netflix later in the year.
Where the first two seasons pulled us slowly into the depths of Sheriff Walt Longmire’s life on the sprawling plains of Wyoming, the third season is like the hammer blow that follows the slow, methodical wind-up.
The second season ended by bringing a lot of forces to the fore in a move of plot construction that brilliantly weaves angles and conspiracies into a show that actually makes it difficult to look away. The third season spins this all together, but uses a mode of »

Thrillers come in all shapes and sizes, from sophisticated legal dramas to high-octane and shocking action features.
With the atmospheric and absorbing Netflix original series Bloodline arriving this week, here are some of the best TV and movie thrillers on Netflix:
Not for the faint of heart, South Korean director Park Chan-wook's Oldboy tells the story of a man who is locked away for 15 years without knowing the identity of his captor or the reason for his punishment.
When he is released just as inexplicably, he finds himself with only five days to unravel the mystery, save the woman he loves and seek vengeance against the people who destroyed his life.
With non-linear storytelling and a powerful atmosphere of paranoia over five seasons, you'll learn to suspect everyone, »
It’s no secret: Women have always run “American Horror Story.”
Whether they were in charge of covens or performing as freaks, the women of “American Horror Story” are a force to be reckoned with. The ladies of the show were celebrated by the Television Academy Tuesday night with a special panel, including cast members Kathy Bates, Jamie Brewer, Connie Britton, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and Gabourey Sidibe, along with executive producers Jennifer Salt and Alexis Martin Woodall.
Some of the women, like Paulson and Rabe, have been part of the show for several seasons; Britton, however, was only in the first, dubbed “Murder House” — but she hasn’t ruled out returning to the show.
When asked by moderator Debra Birnbaum, executive TV editor at Variety, if she would return to the show, she didn’t miss a beat before answering, “Of course I would,” eliciting a roar of excitement from the audience. »

A&E checked back into Bates Motel last Monday for a season three premiere that featured familiar faces, a new arrival, and a difficult first day back at school for the troubled Norman. The next episode, "The Arcanum Club", airs tonight at 9:00pm Est and we recently had the chance to take part in an interview call with actor Freddie Highmore (Norman) and writer/executive producer Kerry Ehrin. The Bates Motel duo discussed the disturbing direction Norman is going in the third season, the new cast members and their intriguing characters, the show's sprinkled-in connections to Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, and much more.
On the approach taken with the character of Norman Bates in season three:
Freddie Highmore: "This season was more changing him and making him a bit more mature with the self-awareness that he gained at the end of the second season and so it was perhaps »

People have been known to say that there are not very many parts on television for women over the age of 40. Well, obviously those people have never met Connie Britton. The actress, who just recently turned 48 years old, has been on three very popular and successful television series since she turned 40: Friday Night Lights, American Horror Story, and Nashville. She is not the only actress over 40 playing a pivotal role on a successful TV series. There is Julianna Margulies on The Good Wife, Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Viola Davis on How to Get Away with Murder. All of these women are Emmy nominated for their roles (we are thinking Davis will come this fall), just like Britton. Here is a look at the back at the successful television career of Connie Britton that dates back twenty years to 1995. The Mid 1990’s (1995-1996) Connie Britton »
