Everyone knows that the Emmys never nominate horror programming, which is why FX’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM is nominated for fifteen Emmys this year – uh, wait a minute. FX President John Landgraf takes some time during a break at the Television Critics Association press tour to discuss the Emmy love for his network’s show that has “horror” in its title. The AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM nominations include Outstanding Miniseries or Movie, Outstanding Actress (Jessica Lange, who won an Outstanding Supporting Actress Emmy last year for playing a different role in the series’ first season), Outstanding Supporting Actor (James Cromwell […]Read On »

Season 6 of SONS OF ANARCHY, the motorcycle club/crime drama created by Kurt Sutter, comes roaring back onto FX this week. Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) is currently running SAMCRO (Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Originals). He’s pleased that former SAMCRO chief Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), who is also Jax’s stepfather, is presently behind bars; unfortunately, Jax’s wife Tara (Maggie Siff) is also in jail. As for Jax’s mother Gemma Teller Morrow, played by Katey Sagal (who in real life is married to series creator Sutter), she at least begins the season in an uncommonly serene state of mind. While […]Read On »

For its first four seasons, THE LEAGUE, the half-hour comedy created by Jackie and Jeff Schaffer, was a staple for FX Network.

Asked about the move, Paul Scheer, who plays THE LEAGUE’s much-bullied Andre, quips, “I was just happy that FXX isn’t a p**n channel. For a little bit, I was confused we’d be there.” Scheer, a native […]Read On »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, Dorian Brown, Chris Klein, James Remar, Mary Steenburgen, Kristen Schaal 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: September 5, 2013 WILFRED is a very unpredictable show – it’s not like this series about a man who sees his neighbor’s dog as a man in a dog suit is playing by any kind of rule book – but if there is one thing we could absolutely count on, it was […]Read On »

On FX’s THE BRIDGE, currently in its first season Wednesday nights at 10,Juarez,Mexico police detective Marco Ruiz, played by Demian Bichir, and El Paso,Texas police detective Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) are brought together by a murder case that literally is right in the middle of the bridge between their two jurisdictions. Things quickly become more complicated, with a seemingly unrelated smuggler’s tunnel and a past indiscretion of Marco’s tangling into events. Elwood Reid, whose past writer/producer credits include HAWAII FIVE-0, COLD CASE and CLOSE TO HOME, teamed up with Meredith Stiehm to adapt THE BRIDGE for FX, based on the […]Read On »

IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA debuted in 2005. Since then, the half-hour series about a group of eccentric associates written by, produced by and starring Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton and Charlie Day – also starring Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito – has become a flagship comedy for FX – so much so that SUNNY’s ninth season is being used as part of launch week for FXX, the new network from parent company Fox. IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA‘s new season starts Wednesday, September 4. Howerton, who plays Dennis Reynolds, takes some time during and after a panel at the Television […]Read On »

TV Review: WILFRED – Season 3 – “Stagnation”

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Dorian Brown, Kristen Schaal, Chris Klein Writer: Jason Gann, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: August 22, 2013 WILFRED can be gross and weird and a bunch of other stuff. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s just startling. However, “Stagnation,” an episode that combines rape jokes, eugenics and dog breeding is a bridge too far for this reviewer. Ryan (Elijah Wood) is getting enough in rent from boarder Anne (Kristen Schaal) that he’s not inspired to get […]Read On »

In THE BRIDGE, now in its first season on FX Wednesday nights at 10 PM,Juarez,Mexico police detective Marco Ruiz (Demian Bechir) and El Paso,Texas police detective Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) wind up working together on a homicide case that spans both their jurisdictions. Matthew Lillard’s character, reporter Daniel Frye, is often more a hindrance than a help, partly because he’s unethical and partly because he starts out as an alcoholic drug user, though as of last week’s episode, he’s trying to clean up his act. California native Lillard has been in a wide variety of fare, mostly in feature films […]Read On »
