Stephen Fry is one of those protean creative people who seems to have done everything. The Englishman was part of the Cambridge (University) Footlights Revue, a regular in BLACKADDER alongside Hugh Laurie, who became his partner in comedy in the series JEEVES & WOOSTER and then A BIT OF FRY & LAURIE, a novelist, an essayist, a playwright and a film actor. Now Fry is a regular in CBS’s new Thursday night half-hour comedy THE GREAT INDOORS. Fry plays Roland, the jovial boss of an outdoors magazine who is not greatly bothered by the discomfort of reporter Jack, played by […]Read On »

Cast: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, Joel McHale, William B. Davis Writer: James Wong Director: James Wong Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 25, 2016 So this was definitely more what I was hoping for from THE X-FILES in terms of storyline and bringing the characters together in a proper reunion (see my review of the first episode here) “Founder’s Mutation” did more in the first 15 minutes for this revival than the entire previous episode did. We see Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) once again part of the FBI’s task force to […]Read On »

Cast: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, Joel McHale, William B. Davis Writer: Chris Carter Director: Chris Carter Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 24, 2016 So THE X-FILES is back and it is the first time we have seen Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) on television for the first time since 2002 and … well, it should have been a bigger deal, right? It seems that “My Struggle” was more concerned about cramming as much as it could about the past nine seasons into one episode rather than about the reunion of these […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn, Chris Coy, Dorian Missick, Sean Harris, Joel McHale, Mike Houston, Lulu Wilson Writers: Scott Derrickson & Paul Harris Boardman, based on the book by Ralph Sarchie and Lisa Collier Cool Director: Scott Derrickson Distributor: Screen Gems Release Date: July 2, 2014 It’s not news at this late date that THE EXORCIST has cast a long shadow over many horror films that have followed it since its 1973 release, but it’s not often that we see its influence appear quite so literally as it does in DELIVER US FROM EVIL. DELIVER US […]Read On »

Stars: Joel McHale, Chevy Chase, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Jim Rash, Ken Jeong Writer: Maggie Bandur Director:  Michael Patrick Jann Original Telecast: February 21 2013 Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights I keep coming back to the reconstituted COMMUNITY without creator Dan Harmon at the helm, and the third week in, and I’m still not sold that this is the same show I once loved. COMMUNITY created its own DOCTOR WHO-like show within the show called INSPECTOR SPACETIME which has slowly become a major player in the actual show. Naturally, the new showrunners thought […]Read On »

His unique point of view and strange sense of humor kept COMMUNITY alive and well. Even when it had an uneven […]Read On »

With COMMUNITY  getting new showrunners, only a 13-episode commitment and a new timeslot on Fridays, the question remains – how committed is NBC to the ground-breaking and highly original series? At today’s NBCUniversal Summer 2012 Press Tour, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt discussed the COMMUNITY situation and what’s happening with NBC’s comedy slate in general “I think we’re going to transition with our comedy programming trying to broaden the audience and broaden what the network does,” says Greenblatt. “Those Thursday comedies [30 ROCK, PARKS AND RECREATION, THE OFFICE), which the critics love and we love, tend to be a bit […]Read On »

This first of the final three episodes for season three, “Digital Estate Planning” takes us to yet another place that COMMUNITY hasn’t been before, the 16-bit frontier. Basically the whole gang is taken to a warehouse by Pierce (Chevy Chase) where they are met by […]Read On »
