7 Canceled TV Shows We Wish Netflix Would Bring Back

June 4th, 2014 6:00pm EDT
7 Canceled TV Shows We Wish Netflix Would Bring Back
Arrested Development's successful return for a fourth season on Netflix was lauded as a just reward for a show that was often viewed as a critical success but just didn't have the viewers to show for it. Arrested Development's success on Netflix started a new era of original programming for the company that has since given us other hits like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.

With Netflix's status as a home for quality original shows still on the rise, we thought it might be fun to take a look at back at some of our favorite canceled shows that, like Arrested Development, were pe...

Emmy Nominations: Surprise Inclusions And Snubs

July 19th, 2013 11:05am EDT
'American Horror Story: Asylum'
The Emmy nominations were revealed yesterday. While there may not have been any Earth-shattering news, there are always snubs – and surprise inclusions – to snark about. Let’s dig in.

Snubs

Let’s start with the bad. A big question mark going into the nominations was whether the academy would welcome back ‘Arrested Development.’ With the exception of a nod for Jason Bateman, the answer is apparently “no.” It didn’t even get writing or supporting actor nominations.

Also noticeably missing from comedy supporting actor: two-time winner Eric Stonestreet of ‘Modern Family.’ With so many talent...

Will This Be The End Of 'Community' Or Can Greendale Be Saved?

December 12th, 2011 3:15pm EST
community
NBC’s “Community,” a show that is “streets ahead” of its contemporaries, is likely to suffer the same fate as another famous show that couldn’t be saved by its cult status: FOX’s “Arrested Development” which ran from 2003-2006 and arguably launched the TV-on-DVD phenomenon. Like “Development,” the brilliance of “Community” comes from the show’s unwillingness to pander to the audience or go for cheap laughs (unless they are intentional/ironic). The writers of the show are also keen on building up punch lines over the course of an entire season and even stretching jokes across seasons. Even t...

Keri Russell Talks About Motherhood And Her New Show 'Running Wilde'

September 20th, 2010 3:14pm EDT
Running_Wilde
Keri Russell is back on TV. After her starmaking drama Felicity, which also launched the behind the scenes talent of J.J. Abrams, Russell enjoyed a movie career in critical darlings like Waitress and blockbusters like Mission: Impossible III and Bedtime Stories. Now she’s costarring in the new Fox comedy Running Wilde, from Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz.

Wilde is Will Arnett’s character, Steven Wilde, the son of an oil tycoon. Emmy (Russell) is his childhood sweetheart, who has become an environmentalist protesting Wilde Oil for displacing a tribe in the rainforest. That puts ...

How 'Modern Family' Is Saving The Family Sitcom

January 16th, 2010 10:15am EST
Modern Family
This article hopefully will serve as an adequate mea culpa. In a fall article we mentioned that 'Modern Family' was weak, formulaic, and full of hyperbolic stereotypes. In short, not worth staying on the ABC schedule. It did not take the recent Golden Globe nomination for Best TV Series- Musical or Comedy to change our view.

Thanks to a day off and time to kill on Hulu, we watched the second episode of the show. Needless to say, lunch was skipped, all remaining episodes were viewed, and we realized how unrepresentative a pilot can be. Now we are such unwavering fans of the show th...

NBC's 'Community' Handles Jack Black And Other Guest Stars Well

January 15th, 2010 9:34am EST
Community
During all the NBC internet chatter this week, I couldn't wait for new episodes of scripted comedy. The Thursday lineup was loaded with guest stars, none bigger than Jack Black's appearance on Community, which says one if not two things: the show is underperforming ratings-wise, and A-list actors want to be a part of a comedy they enjoy watching.

The question is not how the Kung Fu Panda would interact with the tight ensemble cast, but how the show's producers would buck the tired traditional sitcom celebrity guest tropes.

Viewers tune into Community because it takes familiar sitcom...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Daybreakers,' 'Youth In Revolt' & More

January 4th, 2010 9:44am EST
Daybreakers
A belated Happy New Year to all. I hope you each had happy holidays and got a chance to view all of the movies you wanted to see.

I haven't seen James Cameron's "Avatar" yet, although it's the top movie on my list right now. I've heard the film showcases some impressive visual effects, but that its dialogue and character development are not as strong. Regardless, I'm still anxious to see for myself.

2010 starts out with the release of "Daybreakers," "Youth in Revolt," "Leap Year," "Crazy on the Outside," "Wonderful World," and "Bitch Slap."

TV Year End Recap

December 26th, 2009 3:00pm EST
TV Year End Recap
Ah, the year has come to an end once more. Well, actually the decade has come to an end. But enough of all that end-of-the-decade nonsense. We still have a year in TV to discuss. A year that finally saw the networks once again deliver us some new shows worth watching, a year when several cable dramas took a massive step forward. A year when Paula Abdul wasn't the worst "Idol" Judge!

Yes, it was a strange year on the small screen, but a good one all the same. Here's the best, and some of the worst, of TV 2009.

Great Performances:

Jane Lynch in "Glee"

Review 'Year One': Everything About This Movie Is Bad

June 18th, 2009 9:53am EDT
Year One
I've heard this theory in the past that once a person reaches a certain age they lose their sense FOR humor. Before today I refused to believe that. Now, I have to at least take it into consideration. Let me say, I am in awe of one Mr. Harold Ramis. Acting, writing, directing... whatever. Christ, this is the man who directed "Groundhog Day"! I can honestly say this is the single hardest thing that I have ever written because I worship the ground that Harold Ramis walks on.

But, I'm sad to report, "Year One" is about enjoyable as putting in your contact lenses when, the night before, you ...

TV Honorees That Should Get Their First Shot At Emmy Nominations

June 10th, 2009 12:02pm EDT
Aaron Paul
Yesterday, we went over the Emmy nominees who have overstayed their welcome. Those perennial TV honorees that simply don't deserve the recognition they once did or, in some cases, never did at all.

So if they're out, who's in? Surely, there can't be too many nominees waiting in the wings. After all, television professionals choose these awards; they can't possibly leave out any substantial number of qualified candidates in favor of perennial duds.

Unfortunately, that's the way it is. Voters simply don't like to change their ways with regards to voting. It almost seems that a ...

Kenan Thompson Talks 'Sit Down, Shut Up' , 'SNL' And More

May 7th, 2009 10:44am EDT
Kenan Thompson
Sit Down, Shut Up may be one of the more brilliant shows to premiere this television season. Produced by the creators of, and starring half the cast of, Arrested Development, the show already has comedy street cred. (Unfortunately, just like it's highly acclaimed predecessor, Sit down, Shut Up may be in trouble. It's hard to ignore the show's being moved 90 minutes earlier to the Sunday night at 7 pm, "I know you're watching 60 Minutes," time slot. Hopefully, Fox will not make the same mistake twice.) Saturday Night Live's Kenan Thompson, who provides the voice for the school's principal, S...

Obsessed
In 'Obsessed', Derek Charles (Idris Elba) sparks a relationship with his smoking hot new co-worker Lisa Sheridan (Ali Larter). One little problem… Derek already put a ring on Sharon Charles (Beyonce). Crazy Lisa doesn't want to hear that though and continues her pursuit anyways. The unrelenting stalker character is a Hollywood staple, so will 'Obsessed' result in some good scares or unintentional laughs? Here's a look back at some of the best and worst stalker movies ever.

There are flashes of manufactured goods and a gentle female voice-over advertising a company called Veridian Dynamics. The commercial claims, "What we make, makes life better….usually," as video of missile destroying a bunker comes across the screen. The ending tagline says "Veridian Dynamics, Life. Better."

At first you think you are watching a really bizarre advertisement, then you realize that you're actually watching ABC's new comedy "Better off Ted." Each episode begins with an advertisement for the company prominently featured in the series, based on the theme of the episode...

Overrated & Underrated Pop Duets

October 3rd, 2008 10:11am EDT
Paul McCartney/Stevie Wonder
Sometimes one just ain't enough.

That's a line, okay an amended line, from the rarest of rock treats - the duet. Everyone loves when two pop icons team up for a single. It's just like those rare occasions when two solo wrestlers join forces for a super tag-team.

Just like its brethren in the WWE the results for pop duets are often much less than the sum of their parts. Still, each duet holds a special spot, or two, in the minds of music fans.

So it's easy to say that all duets are overrated isn't it? Well, that would be the case if it weren't for the fact that so many gr...
