Stars: Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong, Chevy Chase, Jim Rash Writer: Alex Cooley Director: Kyle Newacheck Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 22, 2012 Whenever a show continually takes chances and pushes the envelope, some times that can result in a misfire, which is what the new COMMUNITY episode “Contemporary Impressionists” feels like. It brings the study group at Greendale College back together after a holiday break (unsure how this fits into the episode order, but it seems like this is what should have aired last week, but …Read On »

Interview: COMMUNITY star Gillian Jacobs talks Season 4 hope, Season 3 dope and alternate timelines

One of the strangest and comedically satisfying series on network television is NBC’s COMMUNITY.  Set at the fictional Greendale Community College, the series focuses on a study group of misfits who find themselves in very strange situations every episode. It’s a show aware of its weirdness and strangeness, but there’s also a sweet core to it as well. Gillian Jacobs plays Britta Perry, the high-strung know-it-all and supposed independent thinker who is a much more brittle than she realizes. In fact, last week, it was revealed that she’s a secret homemaker – and comes from a “long line of wives …Read On »

TV Review: BENT – Season 1 – “Pilot” – Series Premiere

BENT - Season 1 poster art | ©2012 NBC

Stars: Amanda Peet, David Walton, Margo Harshman, Joey King, Jeffrey Tambor  Writer:  Tad Quill Director: Craig Zisk Network: NBC, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: March 22, 2012 As much trouble as NBC has been in this season with ratings, the quality of its programs have actually been quite interesting – even when they do seriously fail in nabbing viewers. And while we’ve had to suffer through the abysmal WHITNEY and ARE YOU THERE CHELSEA?, they also hit a double with UP ALL NIGHT and I would even say a triple with the surprisingly well done quirky comedy BENT. If you …Read On »

TV Review: SMASH – Season 1 – “The Workshop”

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: Jason Grote Director: Mimi Leder Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: March 19, 2012 I have written repeatedly that it’s the singing and dancing that makes SMASH so fun to watch, and while “The Workshop” proves my point quite neatly, I think I am going to have to revise my thesis a little. When the show becomes about who is sleeping with whom and the petty in-fighting, well, then it loses what makes it special and unique – it becomes just like any other mildly soapy series …Read On »

While speaking today at Wondercon 2012, COMMUNITY creator and executive producer Dan Harmon revealed that he’s confident the series will be back for Season 4. “We’ll at least get half of a fourth season especially now with the Comedy Central deal,” says Harmon. “I’m not a businessman, but from what I understand, when you have a third season of a sitcom and it’s generating a certain amount of revenue per episode, it’s practical to bring it make and make it syndicatable. A fourth season pick-up for 13 would bring us to the 88 episodes. However, if we lay a fart …Read On »

Stars: Jason Issacs, Laura Allen, Dylan Minnette, Cherry Jones, Steve Harris, Wilmer Valderrama, BD Wong Writer: Howard Gordon & Evan Katz Director: Jeffrey Reiner Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 15, 2012 I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical when when I heard about the premise to AWAKE and how it was going to be able to sustain itself, in two different realities, week after week. Yet, here we are in Week 3, and the show continues to stay on the right path. It’s complicated, complex, but thoroughly engaging with a plot device that brings its …Read On »

Stars: Jason Issacs, Laura Allen, Dylan Minnette, Cherry Jones, Steve Harris, Wilmer Valderrama, BD Wong Writer: Kyle Killen Director: Jeffrey Reiner Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 1, 2012 With NBC struggling to find anything to jump start its anemic ratings, it bet big on SMASH with some okay results. Now they have AWAKE to potentially goose their struggling Thursday nights at 10:00 pm slot. A police procedural with a genre twist, AWAKE is a promising and interesting drama about a cop and loving husband Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) who gets in a horrible car crash with his …Read On »

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: Jacquelyn Reingold Director: Dan Attias Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: March 12, 2012 Oh, for crying out loud! If there was ever a storyline that would make me want to dump SMASH, the affair between lyricist/book writer Julia (Debra Messing) and actor Michael (Will Chase), now heating up in “Chemistry,” would make me do it. Because there isn’t any chemistry between Messing and Chase. Because it’s just too tiresome that the one married character has to have an affair. Because it’s just too creepy the …Read On »
