The war with no end: why American television refuses to leave the trenches

12 October 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

American TV has long been a barometer for the country’s feelings on its military – so what do a new crop of shows say about the opinions of a divided nation?

Military shows have always had a special place in the American television landscape, often reflecting the country’s feelings about its armed forces, and their role in the world. The dominant mood in the 1950s and 60s was light. Sitcoms such as The Phil Silvers Show, Gomer Pyle, Usmc and Hogan’s Heroes presented military life as a goofy romp, even if it was happening in a Nazi prison camp. When the national mood soured in the 70s, the tragicomedy M*A*S*H* hinted at the nation’s growing disillusionment with the Vietnam war. Even the 80s camp of The A-Team tapped into widespread distrust of the government after various scandals, including the Iran-Contra affair.

‘The Brave,’ ‘Seal Team,’ and ‘Valor’ Reviews: Which New Military Show Delivers?

25 September 2017 7:10 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Given that the United States has been at war since 2001, it’s a little surprising that it’s taken this long for us to get so many TV series focused on the armed forces. It’s not that we’ve been completely without — HBO’s Generation Kill was one of the best, but there was also Lifetime’s Army Wives and the more recent (and super jingoistic) Six on the History channel. This fall, however, we have three military series premiering all at once on broadcast: Seal Team on CBS, Valor on the CW, and The Brave on NBC. … »

Get two James Franco's for the price of one in trailer for HBO's The Deuce

10 July 2017 4:17 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

With The Wire, Generation Kill, and Treme under his belt, David Simon has certainly left himself with a high bar to overcome, but when it comes to his collaborations with HBO, it's certainly hard to ignore what he produces. His latest series, The Deuce, will follow the story of the "legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from... Read More »

‘The Deuce': New Trailer Reveals the Complex Rise of New York’s Porn Industry

10 July 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I've been cautiously optimistic about The Deuce since it was announced. As most of you already know, it comes from David Simon, one of the main creative forces behind The Wire, Homicide: Life on the Streets, Treme, The Corner, and Generation Kill. I'm listing out his full oeuvre here because I love all of these works (yes, even some of the more difficult passages of Treme -- but it was all worth it in the end!) and I am also heading off "but The Wire!" comments when it comes to my reservations about The Deuce. The new trailer for … »

How ‘Big Little Lies’ (and Improvised Sex Scenes) Turned Alexander Skarsgård Into an Awards Contender — Career Watch

12 June 2017 10:42 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors. In this edition we tackle Alexander Skarsgård, who’s advancing his career with a canny combo of studio movies, indie films, and premium television.

Bottom Line: You never know where you stand with Skarsgård, who has the complexity of a character actor beneath the leading-man looks that launched a thousand memes. (Reads one: “Research shows that if you’re afraid of spiders, you are more likely to find one in your bedroom… I’m really afraid of Alexander Skarsgård.”)

His muscular swagger and danger is on display in “The Legend of Tarzan,” but his tender attentions to wife Jane (Margot Robbie) were that film’s throbbing heart. And in the hugely popular and topical HBO drama series “Big Little Lies,” he holds his own with an ensemble of powerful women including executive producer Nicole Kidman, who performs an »

Emmy Race: Limited Category Overcomes ‘Mini’ Past

8 June 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Remember when we just called them miniseries?

Limited series couldn’t have a more complicated Emmy history: First a standalone category, then merged with TV movies, then separated yet again — and then renamed limited series. Talk about an identity crisis.

It’s hard to imagine, but back in 2009, there were only two — yes, two — nominees in the limited series category. We’ve come a long way since PBS’ “Little Dorrit” vied for the trophy against HBO’s “Generation Kill.” The Dickens classic — starring a then-unknown Claire Foy — took the prize, for what it’s worth.

Oh, how times have changed.

Now it’s one of the most hotly contested races, with high-profile projects boasting A-list star wattage rivalling what’s on tap at the local multiplex. Hollywood’s premier talent — behind and in front of the camera — is flocking to the small screen, lured by the promise of six- to eight-episode runs, and »
