Netflix Comes Fourth In Critical Review Study

6 December 2015 9:25 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Like in film circles, there's a certain amount of elitism and prejudice when it comes to television these days. With production values on shows now closer to that of cinema, and with shows moving more towards shorter and tighter runs of episodes, some who rarely dabbled in television are now enamored with it.

As they do so though, they bring their dismissiveness with them and demands that all shows boast richer filmmaking style. This means almost all network TV is ignored altogether, and even a bunch of cable shows simply aren't up to snuff.

For this crowd, HBO is their pin-up model - the network that started the golden age of television has earned the loyalty of a whole generation and is still seen by many as the pinnacle and home of cinematic long-form storytelling. In recent years though there's been a serious challenge from Netflix whose original programming has »

Jason Gives Thanks

24 November 2015 2:19 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Howdy folks it's Jason here - with this week's "Beauty vs Beast" we gave some thanks for two classic Christina Ricci performances (have you voted yet?) but it's a rich world with lots of good to great stuff in it so here are a few more things that have brought a big dumb smile to my big dumb face this year.

- For Getting On and the spectacular showcase it's given three crazy talented actresses (not to mention all the smaller roles they fill in with even more under-used gems), letting each of them be both hysterically funny and heartbreaking within the matter of milliseconds (and for introducing the phrase "anal horn" into my vocabulary - that one's a keeper!)

- For the venom that dripped off of Rose Byrne's every ace line reading in Spy (this scene in particular)

HBO’S ‘Getting On’ Creator, Executive Producer and Writer, Will Scheffer on the Show's Final Season

21 November 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

In January 2014, I spoke with Will Scheffer about his HBO series "Getting On" for this publication:

You can read that interview Here

And now we fast forward almost two years later and the show is in its third and final season. In our interview, Scheffer looks back at his experiences with the show and talks about collaborating with his husband, Mark V Olsen – creator, executive producer and writer of "Getting On" and their other shows, including "Big Love."

In addition to the HBO American cable channel, "Getting On" can be seen on HBO Latin America and HBO Europe and Asia, and through Sky (France, UK, Spain, and so on.)

Kouguell: With the increase of the global cable markets and increasing platforms, reaching a broader audience, how has this affected your shows?

Scheffer: It was gratifying to have read about "Getting On’s" reception in Paris (where they love the show) before the recent attacks and to know that this show speaks particularly to issues of loss and wounding and grief but in a way that enables laughter to mix with heartbreak. This season has so much more resonance to me as it is a comedy. It’s not escapist. It’s healing comedy. You can laugh and cry in the darkest of hours and to me, that’s the greatest service to provide as an artist. To allow people to experience their common humanity. Without self-importance. Experiencing and accepting the fragility of life, of being human, is a wonderful place to begin from.

Kouguell: Looking back at the three seasons of "Getting On," what were some of the most poignant and/or memorable moments for you working with the actors and writers?

Scheffer: We felt that by choosing "Getting On" to adapt we were entering into “stewarding” function with our British team. We wrote all of the episodes and the first two seasons had a lot of material from the original series to adapt, but the final season was all original story. Still, we went to London and ran our ideas by the original creators and worked with them. That relationship, receiving their input bonded us in a way that was unique to most adaptations. The fact that Vicki Pepperdine and Joanna Scanlan appear in Episode 4 as their original characters and meet their American counterparts, and vice versa— felt so amazing. It’s something we’d never seen before and it speaks to the way the British show and the American show are so different but like siblings, so connected. We share the same blood. So that’s a long-winded way of saying, going to London for a week to work with “the girls’ was a high point.

It’s hard to single out moments because working with our actors was the greatest experience of my career. Watching Niecy Nash bloom, seeing Mel Rodriguez and Alex Borstein prove how brilliant they are. Experiencing Laurie Metcalf’s genius (I mean she is a national treasure — beyond, beyond) and then all of our guest and co-stars. Just this season alone: Harry Dean Stanton, Mary Kay Place, Francis Conroy, Rhea Perlman, June Sqibb, Kristen Johnson, Jonathan Silverman, Jayma Mays, Daniel Stern, Rita Moreno, Grant Bowler, Janis Ian!!! Meeting Didi’s family -- Marsha, Corey, Gloria and Scott -- they felt like a real family. Anne Guilbert as Birdie. Not to mention the other great women we were able to work with like Betty Buckley, Tsai Chin, Jean Smart, Irma P. Hall, Alia Shawkat, Carrie Preston, Molly Shannon— I can’t even list them all, I know I’m forgetting people and not even mentioning the supporting cast who were brilliant. These diverse, brilliant actors in just 18 episodes.

Kouguell: This is the second show you have created for HBO, "Big Love" ran for 5 seasons and like "Getting On," pushed the envelope in its examination of timely, hot button issues. For Big Love, the show was not just about polygamy and the power of the church, at its core it was about family. In "Getting On," some of the major topics/themes you tackle are ageism and the health care system. While "Getting On" is very funny, it also strikes a major chord of realism. Truth is stranger than fiction.

Scheffer: I think I mentioned already the theme of human frailty. And I just can’t stress enough how I believe it is an “undervalued” value in our society. I mean we all get old and die. It’s not sexy but it’s part of life. And it doesn’t have to be shoved out of our consciousness or romanticized or treated sentimentally or “importantly.” It’s life. And I wish people knew what they were missing by avoiding dealing with their fears about it. It’s like, do you wanna deal with those fears now or do it later when it’s gonna be a real drag?

It was such a privilege for Mark and me to both be with our moms when they were dying. Sure it was hard, but it was incredibly layered and sometimes funny and of course heartbreaking -- but it was like I wanted to tell everyone: “Hey, you really should experience this, because it’s so amazing, even though it hurts, too.”

Kouguell: The main characters (with the exception of the brilliant Patsy) focus mainly on women and their relationships with their patients and with their colleagues. There is so much talk in the industry now about the lack of women’s roles particularly in the ‘over 40’ category. What are your thoughts on this?

Scheffer: Yeah. Well. That’s always been the case. And I think it’s finally changing. The volatility in the business is palpable and I think that finally that really big ugly fact about Hollywood is going to change. It has to. I know we’re going to keep writing great roles for women because, lucky for us, we’re good at it, I think.

Kouguell: What can we expect from this final season?

Scheffer: Well. It’s the final season. So expect big stories, some big reveals and I’d say that I think the finale is one I will always be very proud of.

The 10 Best Shows You're (Probably) Not Watching

6 November 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Now's your last chance. The third and final season of HBO's "Getting On" starts November 8, so you can still catch this unsung show while it's fresh. Why it never got the buzz of other HBO comedies is unclear. Sure, it's a funny show about a grim topic (dying), but that didn't stop "Six Feet Under" from becoming a critical and popular success.

Quality doesn't always mean popularity, as the following gallery of 10 currently underrated, little-watched series demonstrates. Granted, it's hard to make an emotional investment and time commitment to a show that might be on the cancellation bubble. So enjoy these while you can.

Todd Haynes Discusses Manifesting Love in ‘Carol’ and the Performativity of His Films

12 October 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Todd Haynes‘ filmography is often overwhelming in its intellectual acumen and emotional devastation. The two, for Haynes, seem to be inextricable, which is evident in projects whose loglines might seem heady — the Bob Dylan mythos presented as six actors, postmodern Sirkian melodrama, a study of femininity and fame, etc. — but whose actual presence is grounded in a singular emotional decadence.

This is true of Carol, which is at once a return to the deconstruction of femininity, social mores, and mild anarchy of privilege, as well as an honest and heartbreaking story about falling in love and the trepidation therein. We talked to Todd Haynes about how he approaches the construction of identity in his films, the persona inhabited and navigated through in Carol, and what it was like to articulate the danger of falling in love on screen.

Cycling's biggest scandal explodes onto the big screen in the trailer for Lance Armstrong biopic The Programme

14 September 2015 4:27 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cycling's biggest-ever doping scandal races onto the big screen in the trailer for Lance Armstrong biopic The Programme.

Lone Survivor's Ben Foster portrays the disgraced cyclist in the intense sports drama from Philomena director Stephen Frears.

Framing the movie is the efforts by journalist David Walsh (Chris O'Dowd) to expose Lance Armstrong as a doper during his seven-year Tour de France triumph.

Frears's book is based on Walsh's bestselling memoir Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong, winner of the 2013 Irish Book Award in the sports category.

In the wake of the scandal that ruined Armstrong's international reputation, the cyclist issued a public apology earlier this year to those who he's wronged.

Ben Foster took performance-enhancing drugs to play Lance Armstrong in The Programme

"For 15 years I was a complete arsehole to a dozen people," he said in Lance Armstrong: The Road Ahead.

The actor-comedian wept when she found out she’d been nominated for an Emmy while on the set of “Getting On,” the show that gained her her first nod as Nurse Didi. She initially auditioned for the role of Dawn, but her interest in Didi combined with her research of the script prompted her to ask to read for the nurse on the spot. “Take control of your auditions and be prepared,” she said. “If I was not prepared, I could not have said, Lets do it right now.” Her other bit of advice? “Say the things that you want to manifest in your life. Keep saying them over and over and eventually those things will manifest.” Click here for more SAG Foundation news! »
