Gee, like the Harmon house needs any help in that department. All sorts of entities turn up and things get even spookier […]Read On »

Stars: Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Jessica Lange, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckenridge, Jamie Brewer Writers: Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk, series created by Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk Director: Ryan Murphy Network: FX, Wednesdays @ 10 PM Original Telecast: October 5, 2011 It’s difficult to do serialized straight-up horror on a weekly television series, which is probably why almost no one ever tries it. Before anyone cites, for example, THE X-FILES and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, let us remember that the former had as one of its mottos “I Want to Believe” and “Trust No […]Read On »

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 »

All kinds of things happen at the Television Critics Association semi-annual press tour. However, RESCUE ME’s Peter Tolan, who co-created and executive produces the series with its star Denis Leary, did something on the panel for the show’s final season that even the oldest TCA hands said had never occurred before. RESCUE ME, for its seven seasons on FX, has dealt with the aftermath of 9/11 and its effect on the surviving firefighters of a NYFD unit, particularly Leary’s character Tommy Gavin. At the panel, Tolan hints at what may or may not happen in the RESCUE ME series finale, […]Read On »

SONS OF ANARCHY, writer/producer Kurt Sutter’s drama about the family dynamics and power struggles of the SAMCRO motorcycle gang in the fictional small town of Charming, California, just roared back for its fourth season. While SONS OF ANARCHY has a lot of external pressures on SAMCRO, much of the conflict comes between Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam), son of the late former leader of the gang, and his stepfather/current gang leader Clarence “Clay” Morrow, played by Ron Perlman. At the end of Season Three, Clay, Jax and most of the rest of the gang drew a fourteen-month prison stretch. Season Four […]Read On »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, Dorian Brown, Chris Klein, Gabriella Pession Writers: Sivert Glarum & Michael Jamin, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: September 1, 2011 In WILFRED, a lot of things are in flux a lot of the time, including everyone’s motives and emotions. That’s probably to be expected when the show is about a young man who sees his neighbor’s dog as an Australian fellow in a dog suit. It’s easy to accept that Wilfred (Jason Gann), […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: It’s a dog’s life for WILFRED star Jason Gann

To employ a cliché, Jason Gann is a lot better-looking in person than he is on television. To be fair, this may have something to do that when he’s on television, he’s playing the title character in FX’s Thursday 10 PM comedy WILFRED, so he’s dressed in a fuzzy black-and-white dog suit with floppy ears and a painted-on black nose. This is because Wilfred is a dog, although to his owner’s neighbor, Wilfred looks and talks like an Australian bloke in a dog suit. Not that this is one of Hollywood’s more time-consuming transformations, Gann notes with a laugh. “It’s […]Read On »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, Dorian Brown, Dwight Yoakam Writers: Reed Agnew & Eli Jorne, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn. Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: August 25, 2011 WILFRED viewers may have questions along the lines of, “What the hell is really going on here?” For awhile, “Doubt” seems like it’s going to answer some of these, but it turns out, like so many other things about Wilfred the character (Jason Gann), to be simply a gotcha. However, as it’s a smart, funny […]Read On »
