Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May Not Work

Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May No
Now that all the big networks have revealed what they’ll be showing us this fall, let’s take a look at what may or may not work.

SUNDAY:

ABC is essentially playing it safe, and keeping Sunday Night intact. American Crime will swap for Resurrection at midseason. Resurrection was a buzzy drama that started seeing a ratings decline. Not waiting till midseason is probably a smart move. You don’t want to lose any more audience. It’s not a winning strategy, but ABC just doesn’t want to be in last place.

NBC has football, another super safe move. CBS is shaking things up, banishing Amazing Race...

'Sleepy Hollow' Finally Gets It Right

October 9th, 2013 8:34am EDT
Sleepy Hollow
This week’s fourth episode, “The Lesser Key of Solomon,” is definitely not a lesser ‘Sleepy Hollow’ episode. In fact, it’s one of the better ones. Considering my past three reviews from the pilot to “Blood Moon” to “Triumph of Evil,” all detailed my GREAT disappointment in the action blockbuster pacing that favored cool effects over plot explication and character development. Basically, it felt like ‘Transformers’ with a supernatural bent. Luckily, the ‘Sleepy Hollow’ gods answered my pleas with a resoundingly solid episode. I loved this episode. 80% of the pacing proved spot on while conti...

2013 Fall TV Season: What Will Be The Second Cancellation?

October 8th, 2013 6:00pm EDT
Ironside
NBC- The Voice is still doing good numbers on Monday/Tuesday. The Blacklist is winning its timeslot, and was the first show (technically) to be rewarded with a back-nine pickup. Chicago Fire is also doing solid numbers on Tuesday. Revolution needs to regain some audience members if it wants a second season. With the success of The Blacklist, and Chicago Fire doing OK, Revolution is looking to be one of NBC’s weaker points right now. I can’t see it not running the full second season, but it might not get a third. Also, Ironside is definitely going to get cancelled. The premiere was so low, a...

'Sleepy Hollow' Review: Episode 'The Lesser Key Of Solomon'

October 8th, 2013 8:54am EDT
Sleepy Hollow
Is every episode going to begin with a cheesy flashback or dream? The show is already bordering on the ridiculous. It doesn’t need any help from these lame opening segments. It’d be one thing if the constant reminders of Ichabod’s Revolutionary War connection and witchy wife amounted to something within the episode. However, so far they’ve mostly felt like time fillers. They’re nothing that can’t be explained in two lines of exposition. I’ll eat crow if, when looking back at the season as a whole, the scenes held clues to something bigger coming or if they mirror future scenes. Thus far the...

Top 10 Predicted Hits And Misses Of The New 2013 Fall TV Season

August 17th, 2013 4:00pm EDT
Mom
With the dog days of August winding down, the TV season is just around the corner with lots of new series premieres being served up. We've taken a closer look at the big networks fall offerings – here's what we think will be the top hits and misses of the new TV season.

Top 10 Hits:

Mom: Chuck Lorre is pretty close to owning CBS at this point. Even if the show is dreadful, it will still benefit from being a part of CBS’s strong Monday night lineup, and leading out from 2 Broke Girls which has evolved into a hit over the last two seasons. Plus, the addition of Anna Faris and Allison Janney...

Helena Bonham Carter Calls For Tim Burton To Be Knighted

January 3rd, 2011 12:48pm EST
Helena Bonham
Helena Bonham Carter has called for her American partner Tim Burton to receive an honorary knighthood, because his love of all things English has helped provide thousands of jobs for British film workers.

The California-born Edward Scissorhands director has lived in the U.K. ever since he fell in love with London while scouting for locations for Sleepy Hollow in 1999.

Since his relocation, Burton shoots many of his big budget movies in the U.K., helping keep country's tight-knit film industry in business. And his long term partner Bonham Carter is adamant he should be made a honorary kn...

Johnny Depp Would Have Played Alice In Tim Burton's 'Wonderland'

March 5th, 2010 12:02pm EST
Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp was so desperate to team up with his movie collaborator Tim Burton for Alice In Wonderland - he would have happily played the female lead.

Depp and Burton struck up a friendship after the Hollywood hunk appeared in 1990's Edward Scissorhands, and they have made a series of movies together over the last 20 years, including Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

And Depp insists he would have played Alice in Burton's take on the Lewis Carroll classic just to get the chance to work with his pal again.

He tells Para...

Writer's Viewpoint: Tim Burton Has Become A Fad Disguised As Art

August 19th, 2009 10:40am EDT
Tim Burton
I'm not against fads per se, but this Tim Burton mess bothers me. It's not the kind of harmless era-defining fad that jelly bracelets and scrunchies were in the 80s, and it's certainly not as subtle as Apple's catchy use of the lower-case "i."

Since the turn of the new millennium, Tim Burton has emerged as a kind of self-perpetuating cultural organism, eating other fads and franchises as it grows overstuffed and unable to control its own ego. And now it might be too late for us to do anything about it. It's like a monster straight out of, well - a Tim Burton film.

The kind of people...

Our Favorite Bug-Eyed Celebrities

April 21st, 2009 10:11am EDT
Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
In Hollywood, you've got show-stopping performances and eye-popping beauties. But what about those Hollywood beauties whose eyes just pop? Some celebrities are recognized by their plunger lips, or by their adorable pair of dimples, while others are distinguished by their bulging peepers. The bug-eye feature is very hit or miss, however. On one hand, bug-eyes have the ability to create unconventional gorgeosity in a person, but on the other hand, they are also capable of making good faces go Muppet.

Christina Ricci falls into the former category of bug-eyed celebrities. Her sizeable...

Turning Twenty: A Look Back At 1988's 'Beetlejuice'

March 31st, 2008 4:06pm EDT
Beetlejuice
Half "Bloody Mary" and half decomposing sleezeball, Beetlejuice is the titular anti-hero that helped put Tim Burton into the who's who of Hollywood. Now at its 20th anniversary, let's take a look back at a sparkling example of dark comedy that stands as a precursor to Burton's magical films.

The Movie

Reading the cast list will illicit at least one "oh yeah, he/she was in this" reaction. The ensemble would also make a 1990s romantic comedy cast director salivate: Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, an appearance by the late Robert Goulet, and...

The 'Forgot-scers': Films & Performances That Fell Through The Cracks This Year

February 22nd, 2008 11:39am EST
Michael Clayton
The Academy Awards are just one big popularity contest, right? Everyone has an agenda, everything is fixed, its Hollywood's Prom and this year Michael Clayton is just the Prom King.

Some of it's true and some isn't, and most of the movies nominated this year are rightfully so. That just doesn't reconcile that so many great movies fall through the cracks each year, for whatever reason, and don't get their just deserts.

They're overlooked, they're under-appreciated, and they're forgotten. They may not be the very greatest ever made, but they still deserve to get let in on the celeb...
