Adam Ferrara Returns In Season 6 Of 'Nurse Jackie'
That Jackie Peyton is one lucky gal.

The always hilarious, permanently awesome Adam Ferrara is now a series regular in Season 6 of Nurse Jackie, which kicks off tonight at 9 PM ET/PT on Showtime. He was recurring last season as NYPD officer Frank Verelli, who was determined to romance Jackie (award-winner Edie Falco).

In the new season, Frank and Jackie are still together - but Frank has no idea that Jackie has fallen off the wagon and is once again dealing with her addiction.

Adam is currently hard at work shooting new episodes of Top Gear for History, alongside co-hosts Rutledge Wood a...

Rutledge Wood, Sam Witwer Set For 2014 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race
By the time you're reading this, the 2014 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race will be just hours away. At yesterday's practice and qualifying day, BFTV finally caught up with our friend and defending champion Rutledge Wood - who by virtue of his victory now starts in the Pro category - and newcomer to the field, but not to our audience, Sam Witwer. Here's what Rut and Sam had to tell us about their plans for handling this race and their future projects.

Rutledge is being a little, shall we say, cautious about his chances. "I think the only way that we'll have a shot is if we steal the keys to Al Uns...

'Suits' Recap: 'No Way Out'

'Suits' Recap: 'No Way Out'
Another brilliant season of Suits comes to a close, and we get all verklempt about not being able to enjoy and disassemble and be moved by such a great show every week. And while the show didn't deliver the ultimate bullet that it could have, it still does a fine job - perhaps the more appropriate job - of pushing all its main characters forward into a new world.

Harvey's still in a brooding mood after the events of last week, which this episode follows almost immediately on the heels of. As he and Donna drink to Mike's change of heart (after Harvey calls Donna out on not being entirely be...

5 Writing Lessons We've Learned From 'Suits'
Tonight is the Suits season finale, wrapping up its third season as the best show on television. One of the biggest reasons it has that title is the writing. Series creator Aaron Korsh and his staff are teaching a master class on how to write TV every Thursday night. Here are five writing lessons that we've learned from watching Suits - and be sure you tune in tonight to learn even more about how television should be done.

Lesson No. 1: Don't BS your audience. It's so hard to really get sucked into TV drama anymore, because most shows don't actually follow through on the threats they make....

Director Douglas Aarniokoski Talks 'Nurse 3D'

Director Douglas Aarniokoski Talks 'Nurse 3D'
You might want to avoid hospitals for awhile. Yesterday Lionsgate released Nurse 3D, its wild horror flick that features Paz de la Huerta (Boardwalk Empire) as the titular character, who does more killing than she does caretaking. To find out what exactly was up with this definitely different movie, BFTV phoned up director Douglas Aarniokoski on Monday and quizzed him about the making of Nurse 3D and his inner "film geek."

"I'm so proud of the whole movie, just because we got to do what we wanted to do, which was make this sort of over-the-top sex thriller horror movie," Doug told us. "It ...

'Justified' Recap: 'Restitution'

'Justified' Recap: 'Restitution'
It's that time again: the time in which Justified wraps up another violent, complex and witty season. This time around, it's tempered slightly by the knowledge that next season will be the show's last, and some of the pieces for the ultimate end are already in play. With that in the back of our minds, let's say goodbye to Season 5 and look forward to what this tells us about Season 6.

Daryl Crowe is already mouthing off within the first thirty seconds (and unwisely getting into a staredown with Tim Gutterson; we would not want to cross Jacob Pitts). No one at the Marshals Office is amused ...

TV Theory Of The Week - 'Game Of Thrones': Samwell Tarley, Wildling Prey?

April 8th, 2014 3:28pm EDT
Samwell Tarley
But he’s so lovable! HBO’s Game of Thrones is back with a new season and many complications threatening some of our beloved characters. Like our favorite member of the Night’s Watch, Samuell Tarley, who might soon be meeting his end in a horrifying way. Sure, it’s kind of a miracle that Sam is still alive what with his complete lack of physical prowess, but he has definitely become a likable and sympathetic character and one of the better aspects of the Night’s Watch/North segments of the series. Let’s face it Jon Snow ain’t that engaging, he is whiny and knows nothing, whereas Sam knows a ...

Graham Yost On 'Justified's' Season (And Series!) Ending
Graham Yost is one of our favorite showrunners of all time, because he's a genius and because he's always willing to explain said genius. Previously, Graham let us pick his brain about The Americans, which he executive produces. But we know him best as the showrunner of Justified, which ends its penultimate season tonight. Here's what Graham had to say about the conclusion of Season 5, the end of the entire series next spring, and the one show on broadcast television that he loves (hint: so do we!)

"You’ll see a big shift in the finale," he said of tonight's episode. "You’ll see what happe...

Meet 'Star-Crossed's' Not-So-Ordinary Mom Deena Dill
On The CW's new teen drama Star-Crossed, Deena Dill plays Margaret Montrose, who for reasons we're about to reveal is generally not the kind of parent you'd want to hold up as a role model. In real life, she's much more pleasant to be around. BFTV connected with Deena last week to talk about her Star-Crossed role and her history as one of the creators of another CW series. SPOILER ALERT: If you're not caught up with Star-Crossed, this interview reveals one major spoiler.

If you haven't yet jumped onboard with The CW's latest original series, Deena helpfully provided us a primer for the sci...
