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 »

TV Review: WILFRED – Season 3 – “Distance”

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Dorian Brown, Dwight Yoakam Writer: Jacob Young, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: August 15, 2013 There aren’t too many shows that can get away with jokes about castration. GAME OF THRONES and TRUE BLOOD show the act, but it’s not meant to be funny. To be fair, the WILFRED episode “Distance” doesn’t actually have emasculation, so levity is a little more possible here. How exactly does Ryan (Elijah Wood) get from obsessing over a crayon […]Read On »

TV Review: WILFRED – Season 3 – “Sincerity”

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, Jenny Mollen 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: June 27, 2013 On the face of it, it seems like it could be risky to put the character Wilfred (Jason Gann), a dog that his human friend Ryan (Elijah Wood) and the audience see as a man in a dog suit, in scenes with real canines. The episode “Sincerity” proves otherwise, as having real dogs behaving like themselves just underscores the projection […]Read On »

WILFRED, now in its third season on FX Thursdays at 10 PM, is the offbeat, often surreal comedy about Ryan (Elijah Wood) who is the only person who sees his neighbor’s dog Wilfred (Jason Gann) as an Australian fellow in a dog suit. Gann originally created the series with Adam Zwar as a short in their native Australia, where then was made into a television series. David Zuckerman adapted WILFRED forU.S. television. Randall Einhorn has directed the majority of WILFRED’s episodes and after a gathering of FX series directors at the Television Critics Association press tour, he takes some time […]Read On »
