Stars: Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Jessica Lange, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare, Frances Conroy, Alexandra Breckenridge, Kate Mara, Lily Rabe Writer: Jennifer Salt, series created by Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk Director: Bradley Buecker Network: FX, Wednesdays @ 10 PM Original Telecast: October 17, 2011 Into the life of every series, some exposition must fall. This is true of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, but at least “Murder House” shows rather than tells us the origins of the horror in the Harmon family’s hellish domicile.

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, Dorian Brown, Chris Klein, Ray Wise Writers: David Zuckerman, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: September 8, 2011 It seems somehow appropriate that the first season of WILFRED should end with main human character Ryan (Elijah Wood), along with the audience, more confused than when all this started. After all, once he and/or we start asking the questions that finally occur to Ryan about dog-who-appears-as-man-in-a-dog-suit Wilfred (Jason Gann) – “Who are you? What are […]Read On »

Sometimes you need the bark and bite, which is what Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James bring to the new FX private eye series TERRIERS which airs its season finale tonight. TERRIERS is one of those truly great shows where you can lose yourself in its world, which feels authentic and yet just a bit weird. Created by Ted Griffin, who executive-produces with Shawn Ryan, TERRIERS concerns a pair of extremely low-rent, unlicensed private eyes plying their trade in San Diego, California, where the series is filmed on location. The show takes its name from the dogged determination of its characters, […]Read On »
