DOA: Fall TV Most Likely To Be Canceled

September 4th, 2008 11:30am EDT
Kath & Kim
It's often difficult during a show's first season. Characters come and go, storylines are tweaked, and main players sometimes get replaced. Remember the Aunt Vivs of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" or the husband swap on "Bewitched?"

If a show hasn't proven itself early on, it's an uphill battle. After last season's writers' strike, this may be the first time viewers come to their TVs with welcomed anticipation instead of judgment for new shows. Maybe. But there are some shows that will struggle more than others:

"Kath & Kim," NBC, premieres Thursday, Oct. 9

Must See (& Must Skip) New Dramas This Fall

August 27th, 2008 8:40am EDT
My Own Worst Enemy
Christian Slater has only one facial expression. His eyebrows are permanently arched in a slightly questioning yet slightly sinister gaze; he has a five o'clock shadow that no pancake makeup ever seems to hide; and his eyes are dark and brooding, appearing beady and almost dead without the proper glint from three-point lighting.

Skip "My Own Worst Enemy"

Yet NBC's My Own Worst Enemy (Monday nights at 9 p.m. starting Oct. 13) have him playing two very distinct men: Henry, the slightly dippy family man living in pre-fab suburbia, and Edward, a Jason Bourne-esque operative for a se...

The Best & Worst Films By Quentin Tarantino

April 24th, 2008 8:30am EDT
Quentin Tarantino
The serendipitous career of eccentric movie producer, director and writer Quentin Tarantino is a complex one. Tarantino has made a name for himself by creating nonlinear storylines and filming multiple perspectives from different characters in his movies - a technique that strays from the more commonly used straight-time storyline.

His films are not off the wall, but they invoke an element of surprise that comes from the small details within a scene that catches one off guard and by adding mysterious elements that never get explained. A good example of this was in Pulp Fiction when M...

NBC Takes A Chance With 2008-09 Schedule, Year-Round Programming

April 3rd, 2008 8:36am EDT
Heroes
You've got to hand it to NBC. The once mighty network has been reduced to a perennial loser, regularly coming in behind the rest of the Big Four in every conceivable metric. So instead of trying in vain to come from behind in a game being dominated by CBS and Fox, NBC co-chairman Ben Silverman and company are taking a different approach. They are changing the way the game is played.

Already breaking from convention (by unveiling their new schedule six weeks before the traditional upfront presentations), the hardworking folks at NBC proved that they sincerely meant it when they said ...

Video Games Do Not Make Good Movies

January 14th, 2008 11:18am EST
Street Fighter
There are some things in Hollywood that just do not work: Lindsay Lohan and sobriety, most marriages, Tim Allen tackling roles not involving Christmas, and successfully adapting a video game into a movie. Why is this so hard?

The powers that be can take a 700-page book and trim it down to a two-hour story. Either they are picking really bad video games to adapt or the people involved just suck. There has yet to be a quality adaptation. So why do studios keep insisting on producing them? They even screwed up Doom, a story that involves Marines fighting aliens. How is that even possible...
