Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Dorian Brown, Mary Steenburgen, Steven Weber, John Michael Higgins, Rob Riggle 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 at 10 PM Original Telecast: August 16, 2012 Most WILFRED episodes are respectably, often outstandingly weird even, at those times they fail to be funny. “Service” is rarely funny, which is all right – but it’s not intriguingly peculiar, either, or even touching, apart from one moment at the end that requires knowledge of a Season One […]Read On »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Allison Mack, Steven Weber, Rob Riggle Writers: Cody Haller & Brett Konner, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays at 10 PM Original Airdate: July 5, 2012 With two episodes in a row that end up with Wilfred (Jason Gann) having unambiguously helped Ryan (Elijah Wood), “Dignity” seems to be part of a WILFRED Season 2 trend. It will be interesting to hear whether the WILFRED creative team has decided on this as a way to go with the series or […]Read On »

TV Review: WILFRED – Season 2 – “Progress”

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 »

Stars: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Sechelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Peter Shinkoda, Colin Cunningham and Sarah Carter Writers: Joe Weisberg (“Mutiny”)/Mark Verheiden (“Eight Hours”) Directors: Holly Dale (“Mutiny”)/Greg Beeman (“Eight Hours”)August 7, 2011 After a strong start, a soft middle and a very cool homestretch, FALLING SKIES has proven to be the thinking man’s science-fiction TV series. It’s more about the strategy of combat and little victories and less about full-out weekly alien/human war. After all, the series began AFTER the aliens had already wiped out most of earth with only a small […]Read On »

Stars: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Sechelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Peter Shinkoda, Colin Cunningham and Sarah Sanguin Carter Writer: Joel Anderson Thompson Director: Sergio Mimica Gezzan Network: TNT, Sunday nights Original Telecast: July 17, 2011 It looks like the first of an actual two-parter has finally jostled FALLING SKIES from its free-fall the last couple of weeks. After some pretty rote and by-the-numbers storytelling, “Sanctuary Part 1” actually shakes the show up a bit and does some interesting things that lead to a somewhat surprise ending. The episode gets started with the arrival […]Read On »

TV Review: FALLING SKIES – Season 1 – “Silent Kill”

Stars: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Sechelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Peter Shinkoda, Colin Cunningham and Sarah Sanguin Carter Writer: Joe Weisberg Director: Fred Toye Network: TNT, Sunday nights Original Telecast: July 10, 2011 In another major mis-step for the promising series FALLING SKIES, “Silent Kill” once again relies on the series standard formula of a bunch of world-weary dialogue at the beginning of the episode (usually about surviving), a dangerous mission, and a coda that offers hope. Of course, this formula, five episodes in, is wearing considerably thin. It also doesn’t help that […]Read On »

Stars: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Sechelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Peter Shinkoda, Colin Cunningham and Sarah Sanguin Carter Writer: Melinda Hsu Taylor Director: Fred Toye Network: TNT, Sunday nights Original Telecast: July 3, 2011 Okay, so three episodes is the limit for me on how a new series can take a limited story structure and milk it until it’s unbearable. FALLING SKIES has finally exceeded my limit. With “Grace” we’re stuck with another episode where Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) has to go on some sort of mission, avoid Skitters (the aliens), deal with […]Read On »

TV Review: FALLING SKIES – Season 1 – “Prisoner of War”

  Stars: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Sechelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Peter Shinkoda, Colin Cunningham and Sarah Sanguin Carter Writer: Fred Goland Director: Greg Beeman Network: TNT, Sunday nights Original Telecast: June 26, 2011 The big question I found myself thinking while watching the third episode of FALLING SKIES – “Prisoner of War” is “why I’m increasingly getting sucked into the storytelling even though there’s a been there/done that feeling to this alien invasion series?” With V, it was all about a bunch of set-up and anticipation and little pay-off. With the movie […]Read On »
