Stars: Louie C.K. Writer: Louie C.K. Director: Louie C.K. Network: FX, Thursday nights Airdate: July 7, 2012 The second episode of the third season of LOUIE once again proves why the show is so brilliant and dry, weird and strangely honest. “Telling Jokes / Set Up” begins with Louie sitting around the table with his kids (his TV kids that is) and seeing how his young girls have their own ability to tell silly jokes that are quite funny in their own way. Then, the episode jumps to his stand-up discussing his kids in a lovingly affectionate way. That’s the […]Read On »

Stars: Charlie Sheen, Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith, Daniela Bobadilla, Noureen DeWulf, Michael Arden, Derek Richardson, Writer:  Dave Caplan Director:  Bob Koherr Network: FX, Thursday nights Airdate: July 7, 2012 It’s no surprise why the Sheen (pun intended) is off in the second week of the new FX series ANGER MANAGEMENT. Everyone wanted to see what happened after Charlie Sheen was fired from TWO AND A HALF MEN and what jumping into a brand new sitcom would bring. The results were so-so in its first week – nothing earth-shattering funny, some potentially interesting characters yet it was a sitcom still in […]Read On »

TV Review: LOUIE – Season 3 – “Something Is Wrong” – Season Premiere

Stars: Louie C.K. Writer: Louie C.K. Director: Louie C.K. Network: FX, Thursday nights Airdate: June 28, 2012 While WILFRED really got a lot of press last year on FX for being strange, groundbreaking, funny and utterly perplexing all rolled up in one, it’s taken three seasons for people to finally discover what a brilliant, unique and bizarre FX show LOUIE is. I caught a Season 2 episode one night on FX and was totally sucked in. It was suberverive, strange and very funny. And that’s why I was excited to see what comedian Louie C.K. had in store for the […]Read On »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, Robin Williams, Steven Weber, Chris Klein Writer: 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: June 21, 2011 Expecting answers out of WILFRED is becoming like expecting Lucy to hold the football for Charlie Brown. By the end of “Progress,” which is billed not as the start of Season 2 but as a special episode, we are as or more bewildered than Ryan (Elijah Wood). This is saying something, considering that the poor guy […]Read On »

Actor/comic Romany Malco is actually in the middle of moving from Los Angeles to Brooklyn during this phone conversation – workers periodically ask him questions and his American bulldog Doodles occasionally gives a contented-sounding “Woof” in the background. Despite this, Malco seems remarkably focused and friendly as he discusses his new romantic comedy movie THINK LIKE A MAN, the animated FX comedy UNSUPERVISED, his new social network/TV project ROMANY MEETS HIS FRIENDS and more. ASSIGNMENT X: What is THINK LIKE A MAN about? ROMANY MALCO: It’s really about women trying to think about how to think like a man, and […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Mykelti Williamson talks JUSTIFIED Season 3

Mykelti Williamson in JUSTIFIED - Season 3 | ©2012 FX/Prashant Gupta

In FX’s JUSTIFIED, now in its third season Tuesday nights at 10 PM and already renewed for a fourth, a lot of the residents of Harlan County, Kentucky seem to act like laws unto themselves. This is often true of protagonist U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, played by Timothy Olyphant, as well as a lot of his adversaries in the series, based on writer Elmore Leonard’s story “Fire in the Hole.” It is always true of the character Ellstin Limehouse, played by Mykelti (pronounced Michael T) Williamson. Limehouse, just introduced this season, rules the secluded Noble’s Holler with unquestioned authority. Noble’s […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: JUSTIFIED star Joelle Carter is a creature of Elmore Leonard

On JUSTIFIED, FX’s hit series now in its third season Tuesdays at 10 PM, a lot of the characters are passionate, strong-willed rule breakers. This is obviously true of the hero, U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, played by Timothy Olyphant, and his onetime childhood friend and now sometime ally/sometime adversary, the outlaw Boyd Crowder, played by Walton Goggins. However, Joelle Carter’s character Ava Crowder can and does give both men a run for their money in the gritty determination department. Ava shot and killed her abusive husband Bowman, who was Boyd’s brother. She then hooked up with Raylan for awhile, but […]Read On »

On FX’s award-winning hit JUSTIFIED, now in its third season Tuesday nights at 10 PM, Timothy Olyphant’s character U.S. Deputy Marshal Raylan Givens often exercises his own judgment on how matters of the law should be handled. However, even if Raylan doesn’t always listen to the man, he has healthy respect for his boss, Chief Deputy Art Mullen, played by Nick Searcy. Searcy has played his share of bosses and law enforcement characters over the years – he was a deputy in his series regular role on AMERICAN GOTHIC and was a U.S. marshal in an episode of LINE OF […]Read On »
