"The Americans" Reminds Us How Good Cold War Spy Thrillers Can Be

28 July 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

The Americans hearkens back to an era of political thrillers that have long since died out in favor of more action and less paranoia-laced cloak and dagger antics. That it works as a period piece set during the height of the Cold War only makes each episode of its first season that much sweeter as it has to jump through fewer technological hoops and can instead just focus on the skill of the Russian sleeper agents (played here by Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys) at fooling everyone around them, including their neighbor (Noah Emmerich), an FBI Agent slowly growing wise to the presence of spies living among the average Americans. The Americans takes great pains to create high dramatic stakes even as it never goes after anything as lofty as presidential assassinations or a major terrorism plot. It’s all about infiltration and data gathering, an agenda that sounds boring »

Press Tour: July 2014 FX Executive Session Live-Blog

21 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Thanks to "Fargo" and "American Horror Story: Coven," FX had a huge Emmy nomination haul two weeks ago.  And with "Fargo" leading the way, the network still has some of the best reviewed shows on TV. However, "Tyrant" and "The Strain" both drew mixed reviews, as did the comedies "Married" and "You Are The Worst." Fxx is still struggling to find an identity as it awaits a massive influx of "Simpsons" repeats. And just last week, FX announced that it would no longer be providing L+Sd ratings for reporters, preferring the fuller picture of Live+3 and Live+7 numbers. So let's just say that FX President John Landgraf will have plenty to talk about on Monday (July 21) morning at the Television Critics Association press tour... Click through and follow along... 9:19 a.m. We were delayed a bit by a couple embargoed released for announcements that are coming in the next five minutes. »

The McConaissance Continues at the Star-Studded TCA Awards

20 July 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Matthew McConaughey just doesn't lose! The actor brought his good looks and winning spirit to the Television Critics Association Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Saturday. He faced steep competition in the individual achievement in drama category - Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), and Matthew Rhys (The Americans) were all nominated - but Matthew took home the award for his gripping portrayal of Rust in HBO's True Detective. Bryan showed his support for Matthew, posing with the actor and his gorgeous wife, Camila Alves. The Orange Is the New Black ladies brought a high dose of glamour to the show, with Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Kate Mulgrew, and Danielle Brooks all trading their prison jumpsuits for stunning ensembles. The women took center stage to accept the award for outstanding new program. In other big moments, Julia Louis-Dreyfus walked »

Editors' Emmy Slugfest: Who'll win Best Drama Guest Actress?

20 July 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In our new prediction slugfest, Gold Derby Editors agree that Allison Janney ("Masters of Sex") is the frontrunner (and has been since last year) in the Emmy race for Best Drama Guest Actress, but that Jane Fonda ("The Newsroom") and Kate Burton ("Scandal") give great performances in their episode submissions and could dethrone Janney. Senior Editor Daniel Montgomery and I battle it out mano-a-mano-style in our latest video (watch below) as we analyze the episodes submitted to Emmy judges as examples of their best work from the past TV season. Janney entered "Brave New World," Fonda tried her luck with "Red Team III" and Burton went with "A Door Marked Exit." Other nominees: Kate Mara for "House of Cards" ("Chapter 14"), Margo Martindale for "The Americans" ("Behind the Red Door") and Diana Rigg for "Game of Thrones" ("The Lion and the Rose"). -Break- »

A reboot of Columbo is a fantastic idea apart from one enormous flaw

18 July 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Mark Ruffalo will be great as the character Peter Falk made famous but not if he persists in making a big-screen version of the made-for-television detective

Hulk recently smashed Twitter, or at least his punier human half Mark Ruffalo did. The Avengers actor confirmed that he was in the early stages of developing a big-screen reboot of TV's most beloved detective, although the #RuffaloColumbo kerfuffle may yet turn out to be one of those superheated social media storms that flares up and is then immediately forgotten.

At the very least, #RuffaloColumbo has reminded the wider world how much it used to love Columbo. After the late Peter Falk's magnificent, sublimely modulated performances in 69 feature-length episodes, from the gritty 1970s through to the garish 1990s, it feels almost disrespectful to imagine anyone else in the rumpled raincoat. But the last ever Falk episode co-starring a fresh-faced Matthew Rhys from The Americans, »

Bryan Cranston Will Go All The Way For HBO

17 July 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems like an age since we said an emotional farewell to Walter White – the iconic Breaking Bad character that brought Bryan Cranston millions of new fans worldwide. But, despite many opportunities in film having presented themselves – including Argo and Godzilla – along with a Tony-award winning turn on the Broadway stage, it seems the actor has not abandoned the small screen entirely. HBO has acquired the rights to develop the play All The Way for television, and Bryan Cranston is firmly on board.

The role in the play that brought Cranston his Tony award is that of Us President Lyndon B Johnson, and the story centres on his initial, eventful year in office. In the wake of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the plot encompasses the escalation of the Vietnam War, the launch of the Civil Rights Bill, and the election that brought him Johnson his first full term as President. »

Halfway Mark: The Best TV Episodes of 2014 (So Far), Part 2

Girls, “Two Plane Rides”

Written by Lena Dunham

Directed by Lena Dunham

Aired March 23rd, 2014

Do you remember how last season’s Girls run ended? Well this season things culminated in an entirely different tone. This time, there were no grand gestures or fireworks. Season three isn’t quite as dark as season two, but man is the finale rough. If the season two finale frustrated fans because it suggested that Hannah might be too dependent on the man in her life, the season three finale seems intent on underlining that Hannah’s ready to move on, with or without Adam. And she isn’t the only one moving on, but she seems to be the only one moving in the right direction: Hannah gets into the country’s best grad school, Adam gives a truly “bad” performance in his Broadway debut, Marnie finds herself in another destructive relationship, Shosh »

Guillermo del Toro Addresses Worm in the Eye Billboards for FX’s ‘The Strain’

11 July 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Guillermo del Toro had some fun addressing “The Strain’s” advertising campaign at the Thursday DGA premiere and those who want the frightening billboards around the country taken down.

“I got asked a lot about this ad, and they said, ‘Do you find it morally disturbing?’ And I said, ‘Look, honestly, I find every other form of advertising more morally disturbing. Beer commercials, aftershave. This is just a fucking worm in the eye!’”

FX Networks CEO John Landgraf agreed. “We had to terrify some children in order to launch this show, but I think it was worth it. Just saying,” he added. “‘The Strain’ is a modern take on the vampire myth, one in which vampires are brutal parasites aiming to take over the world. Think of them as the new one percent.”

“I’ve been obsessed with vampires since I was a child. I was very, very lonely,” del Toro joked. »

Five Easy Ways to Fix the Emmys

10 July 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Emmy nominations were announced this morning and as usual, there were a number of snubs and surprises, which the Internet collectively whined about this morning. Rather than continue to mourn the lack of a nomination for Tatiana Maslany (which I admittedly complained about as well), actual solutions need to be pitched. Sadly, “chain Emmy voters to a chair and make them actually watch Orphan Black” seems somewhat implausible and definitely criminal, so here are five reasonable and seemingly easy solutions the Emmys should consider next year.

 

1. A Dramedy Category

One of the most-nominated newcomers announced on Emmy morning was Orange is the New Black, which with 12 total nods amassed more than any other comedy, including Modern Family, Veep, and The Big Bang Theory. Yet most fans of the show would hesitate to classify it as a comedy. Compared to most of the other shows in the category, it certainly does not fit the pattern. »

Is 'True Detective' worthy? 'Modern Family,' again? The critics react to 2014's Emmy nods

10 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Melissa Maerz: Jeff,

When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid. Among the smartest choices »
