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 »

TV Review: SMASH – Season 1 – “Chemistry”

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 »

Stars: Jason Issacs, Laura Allen, Dylan Minnette, Cherry Jones, Steve Harris, Wilmer Valderrama, BD Wong Writer: Kyle Killen Director: David Slade Network: NBC, airs Thursday night Original Telecast: March 8, 2012 After establishing the very complex work of AWAKE where cop Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) finds himself living in two different realities – one where a car accident claimed his wife and one where the crash claimed his son, this second episode “The Little Guy” settles into a really nice groove. The concept could still be challenging for normal viewers, but this episode makes the conceit go down real smooth, …Read On »

TV Review: SMASH – Season 1 – “Let’s Be Bad”

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: Julie Rotenberg & Elisa Zuritsky Director: Jamie Babbit Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: March 5, 2012 “Let’s Be Bad,” as an episode, is all over the place, but on the plus side, the SMASH writers have backed off on a couple cliches. They went hog wild on the others, though, including a final scene you could see coming from the back balcony far corner with restricted sight lines in that sound dead corner of the auditorium. We start out with Julia (Debra Messing) still behind on pages …Read On »

TV Review: SMASH – Season 1 – “The Cost of Art”

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: David Marshall Grant Director: Michael Morris Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: February 27, 2012 There is no getting around it that SMASH is a fun show to watch. The singing and dancing are wonderful fun. The original songs don’t suffer too much from Andrew Lloyd Webber syndrome (beating you over the head with soulful sappiness and the tendency to become insidious ear worms). In fact, the  featured production number in this episode “The Cost of Art,” I Never Met a Wolf Who Didn’t Love to Howl, …Read On »

PARENTHOOD began life as a feature film comedy/drama about a large family. It was adapted into a half-hour television series that ran for twelve episodes in 1990-1991.

Sam Jaeger plays Joel Graham, who is married to Erika Christensen’s character Julia, youngest daughter of the large Braverman clan.

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: Theresa Rebeck Director: Michael Mayer Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: February 20, 2012 The testament of a good show is to be able to turn it on, intending to watch a few minutes, and getting sucked in to watch the whole thing. That’s what happened while watching SMASH, the “Enter Mr. DiMaggio” episode. I was only going to check out how things held up after the first two stellar weeks, and well, I was sucked right back into the series. Of course, with the good, …Read On »
