Unless you’re going to turn Mr. Chips into Scarface, like Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan did with the character of Walter White, then one of the key tenets of a television show is that you must have a likable character. Hell, Walter White was even likable and sympathetic in the beginning. But here we are in the midst of the competitive and expansive fall TV season rollout, and NBC is offering two comedies for the general public’s consumption. Notice that one word was “NBC” and not, say, FX where you might get an unlikeable lead character. And the other word

I’ve always been drawn to films that have lead characters that don’t fall into a black or white area, ones that are in a very grey place. Characters like those ones tend to stay with you after watching the films they inhabit, and are able to make you stop and think for a while, making you wonder if you would follow the same paths that they did, if faced with similar obstacles and/or situations. Already having made a name for themselves as a studio that releases very story-driven films across all genres, IFC Films (along with their genre branch off, IFC Midnight) has done a hell of a job giving fans of very character based films exactly what they want to see. Instead of writing about one of their recently released titles, I thought it would be fun and interesting to write a bit about two films »

Carolyn Bernstein is the executive in charge of threading the needle very, very carefully.
Bernstein, head of scripted programming at Shine America, spearheaded the drive to produce a U.S. rendition of “Broadchurch,” the murder-mystery series that garnered such acclaim in the U.K. and in its Stateside airing on BBC America.
A big part of Bernstein’s job at Shine America is to scout around at other Shine Group affiliated companies for formats that lend themselves to U.S. adaptations. She helped build “The Bridge” at FX from a Scandinavian drama format, and she is working with David Fincher and Gillian Flynn, fresh off their teaming on “Gone Girl,” to bring another Kudos property, »

Fox’s “Gracepoint” is a near shot-for-shot remake of the BBC’s “Broadchurch,” albeit served up in 10 episodes instead of eight. That’s not a bad idea, especially for the millions who haven’t seen the British version, but it does make it harder to appraise this crime mystery strictly on its merits, even if the producers say they won’t rigidly follow the original, including (from this quadrant, anyway) its disappointing conclusion. “Broadchurch” rightly generated critical accolades, and its American twin is serious and spare. That said, this limited series doesn’t look like the answer to Fox’s Thursday woes.
David Tennant — adopting, for those familiar with him, a Yankee accent that takes some serious getting used to — reprises his role as the outsider detective investigating a young boy’s murder in a small beachside town, with “Breaking Bad’s” Anna Gunn as his partner, who is deeply rooted in the community. »

Stagnation and inconsistency is plaguing Sons Of Anarchy's final season. Here's Gabriel's review...
This review contains spoilers.
7.4 Poor Little Lambs
In a show like Sons Of Anarchy, stakes are essential.
This may seem like a blindingly obvious thing to say, but for television dramas that revolve around lots of death, darkness and violence, it often becomes difficult to maintain a feeling of danger to all characters at all times. Stakes rarely get any higher than life and death, and there are only ever so many main characters a series can kill off to prove it isn’t screwing around. Breaking Bad managed to maintain this sense of danger by regularly shifting the stakes just enough to keep it interesting. While there was always a threat to Walt and Jesse, she show deftly varied how much that threat could affect anyone else, or whether that threat was death, imprisonment or exposure. »

When cancelled NBC sitcom Community was picked up by Yahoo! Screen in a rather remarkable eleventh-hour resuscitation, loyal fans of the beloved series likely breathed a deep sigh of relief and assumed that, finally, everything was going to be okay for the Greendale gang. Sadly, that’s not the case today, as series regular Yvette Nicole Brown has confirmed that she will not be reprising the role of Shirley Bennett in Community‘s upcoming sixth season.
Brown, who has been with Community since the start, opted to depart the show in order to care for her ailing father. Speaking with TV Guide, which broke news of the exit, she said:
“My dad needs daily care and he needs me. The idea of being away 16 hours a day for five months, I couldn’t do it. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I had to choose my dad. »

You might know Jake McDorman as Evan Chambers from Greek and Analeigh Tipton as the babysitter from Crazy, Stupid, Love - yes, the one who broke out on America's Next Top Model - but they're going to try to win your hearts in ABC's new comedy, Manhattan Love Story. The show premieres this week, and if you haven't seen the show's trailer yet, it's a typical boy-meets-girl tale, but there's a twist: you can hear their thoughts. So as they're spouting pleasantries on screen, you know they're secretly judging each other, super hard. Bonus: the stars are dating in real life, too! I caught up with the stars over the Summer and chatted about their concerns for the new series, as well as the shows they can't live without. Popsugar: The thoughts-as-voice-overs format of the show is really new for primetime; is that something that attracted you to the script? »
A sixth season of Community is coming soon, but unfortunately it will be without Shirley. Sony TV confirmed on Monday that Yvette Nicole Brown is leaving the community college-set comedy, which was canceled by NBC in the spring and is being revived by Yahoo. (TV Guide first reported the news.)
Brown—who starred in the show’s first five seasons as Shirley Bennett, the devout, tightly wound mother of three—says she is departing so she can tend to her sick father. “My dad needs daily care and he needs me,” Brown told the magazine. “The idea of being away »
