Dawn Wiener is dead, long live Dawn Wiener! Todd Solondz‘s second feature film, Welcome to the Dollhouse, is hailed as the filmmaker’s big breakthrough — a bold, gross, weird and uncomfortably honest look at one awkward tween’s coming-of-age in nineties New Jersey. The film starred Heather Matarazzo as Dawn “Wiener Dog” Wiener, an outcast desperate to fit in with her bone-headed peers, her terrible family and a classmate who repeatedly attempts to rape her. As is Solondz’s signature, the film is admirable and unique, even if you feel like you need a shower after watching it. The Hollywood Reporter now reports that Solondz is “sort of” working a sequel to the 1995 Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning feature film, as the filmmaker is currently casting for Wiener-Dog, billed as “an ensemble indie that is tied together thematically by a dachshund.” Moreover, “the script tells several stories featuring people who find their life inspired or changed by »

We are back! Who are we? What are we back to? Who the heck knows!? But look at this fancy new post that isn’t at all disturbing!
NBC might not have aired it, but we here at This is Our Design were never going to pass up on the chance to talk about “Oeuf,” Hannibal‘s most notorious episode. Co-hosts Sean Colletti and Kate Kulzick are joined by David Bax of Battleship Pretension and Hey, Watch This! to break down the episode (and…break…some…eggs!? (it’s a pun on the title (only now do we realize breaking and cracking something are two different processes))). Discussion centers heavily around ideas of family as we lead into some of our best editions of the recurring segments yet: “Kate’s Classical Corner,” “The Devil in the Details,” and “Spoiled Meat,” which has much to do with kitchenware.

Last weekend at Comic-Con, we joined a small group of journalists for an interview session with the main cast and executive producer of Supernatural. Stars Jared Padalecki (Sam), Jensen Ackles (Dean), Misha Collins (Castiel), and Executive Producer Jeremy Carver provided details on some of Season 9′s big moments and teased what we can expect from Season 10.
Executive Producer Jeremy Carver:
It seems like there are some excellent storytelling opportunities with the introduction of the Men of Letters Bunker. Do you plan on having a continued focus on that in Season 10?
When we introduced the Men of Letters, not just as a location, but one of the final pieces or the Winchester Family Tree, it opened up for the writers and enormous trove of possibilities. Yes, we’re always coming up with fantastic ways of looking at the Men of Letters and it’s become such a part of the »

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 »

Is "The Girlfriend Experience" about to become the new "Fargo"? Starz announced on Monday (June 23) that it has ordered a somewhat fascinating -- in concept, if Tbd in terms of execution -- 13-part anthology series based on Steven Soderbergh's 2009 indie. "The Girlfriend Experience," if you've somehow forgotten, featured adult actress Sasha Grey as a high-end Manhattan escort offering Gfe, Girlfriend Experiences meant to simulate the intimacies of actual marriages or relationships. A 2009 Sundance premiere, "The Girlfriend Experience" wouldn't immediately seem to be the most likely movie-to-tv transfer. It grossed under $700,000 at the domestic box office and reviews were more "curious" than positive/negative for the drama, which had a running time of under 80 minutes. "The Girlfriend Experience" is probably thought of among Soderbergh's digital experiments, projects like "Full Frontal" or "Bubble," rather than positioned among the Oscar and Emmy winner's bigger critical or popular successes. It appears that the »

You might feel some apprehension about the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, but you know you’re going to watch it. When it finally arrives, that is. The show, which is to star Bob Odenkirk reprising his role as lawyer Saul Goodman, was supposed to debut on AMC this November. The bad news is that it’s been pushed back until early next year. The good news, though, is that the cable network is excited about what they’ve seen so far and have already renewed the series for a second season. The first will be 10 episodes, and the second, arriving early 2016, will add another 13. Vince Gilligan is directing the pilot and will share showrunning duties with Peter Gould, who created Goodman as a Breaking Bad writer in season 2 (the character’s debut episode was also called “Better Caul Saul”). Michael McKean, who was so great recently on HBO’s canceled Family Tree is also in »

The Television Academy of Arts & Sciences released this year's Emmy ballots on Monday. Now that the ballots are out, it's time for our annual two-pronged experiment, in which Dan tries to predict the likeliest nominees in each major category, while I pretend that I'm an actually TV Academy member and pick the six nominees that would make me the happiest. We are, as always, playing by the Emmy rules, which means we can't argue for someone who didn't submit themselves (say, Alan Cumming for "The Good Wife"), can't move someone from lead to supporting or vice versa, and can't declare that "True Detective" is a miniseries and therefore clear more room in the drama categories. I'm also obviously limited by what I watched and what I haven't. I've only seen a couple of "Nurse Jackie" episodes so far this season, for instance, and the sample size wasn't enough for me »

From the beginning of the competition, both finalists have been commended for their big performances and even bigger vocal power and range. Now that they are the last man and woman standing, you can expect the finale to be a “big, over-the-top rock ‘n roll extravaganza,” according to Johnson. But just how did a teenager from Michigan and a guy who auditioned two times already for the show make it to the finale? »
