TV Series Of The Year: USA's Suits

Television doesn't get any better than this. Suits has been nearly flawless over three seasons, with a completely fantastic cast including two of the best actors we can think of (Gabriel ...

Willie Garson Directs His First Episode Of 'White Collar'

December 5th, 2013 12:10pm EST
Willie Garson
Tonight's episode of White Collar is a special one, because Willie Garson - the delightful actor behind everyone's favorite enigmatic con man Mozzie - will get his first director's credit. BFTV recently had the chance to chat with Willie about making his debut as director and a few other things besides, like finally learning his character's real name!

In "Quantico Closure," we get to poke around in the past of one FBI agent Peter Burke, as he ends up working alongside his ex-girlfriend (played by guest star Kim Dickens), which naturally doesn't go over swimmingly with Peter's loyal wife El...

Josh Charles, The Good Wife
Thanksgiving is upon us and it's time for us to give our thanks - for the acting performances that make doing what we do worthwhile.

There are so many talented actors and actresses out there that we don't possibly have the space to recognize them all, but here are the five gentlemen who made us thankful that we were around to write about them over the past year, in alphabetical order.

1) Josh Charles, The Good Wife (CBS)

There's nothing sweeter to those of us watching an actor we love swing for the fences, and that's exactly what's been happening with Josh Charles this TV season. America...

White Collar
The tables have turned in the new season of USA's White Collar. FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) finds himself in prison while ex-con Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) strives to clear his name, after Neal's own father left them both hanging. BFTV recently connected with Tim and Matt for a chat in which they talked to us about how things have changed and the many characters who will come into play during Season 5.

In a key scene from tonight's premiere episode, "At What Price," Peter and Neal have a conversation in which Peter basically admits that he is no longer objective when it comes to his o...

Back In The Game
Maggie Lawson is now doubly awesome. The Psych star is bringing her charm, talent and beauty to Back In The Game, the new ABC sitcom where she plays former star athlete turned single mom Terry Gannon, Jr. Maggie took some time out on Friday to give BFTV the dish on tonight's new episode and what it's like to feature on two shows, as well as what her role on Back In The Game means for the future of Juliet O'Hara on Psych.

The new job makes her the second USA Network alum to star on two shows in the same season (after Burn Notice star Coby Bell, who also played in BET's The Game), and Maggie...

'Suits' Finale Recap: Harvey And Rachel Make Relationship Moves

September 18th, 2013 8:26am EDT
Can you believe we've reached the midseason finale of Suits already? Neither can we. But after nine episodes of consistantly excellent work, episode ten blows it all out of the water, for both good and evil, but mostly good.

Bringing everything from this season and then some back into our memories, "Stay" opens with a really uncomfortable conversation between Harvey and his ex-flame slash current nemesis Scottie (returning guest star Abigail Spencer). He apologizes and tries to convince her to honor the existing dissolution agreement before things get any more chaotic. She remains convince...

How 'Suits' Proved The Power Of Split-Season TV

September 17th, 2013 12:30pm EDT
Harvey Specter knows what he's doing. So, too, do the people putting him on the schedule.

Not so long ago, TV audiences were used to a season being one relatively continuous block of 22 episodes. That's no longer the case anymore. There are about a half-dozen different ways we get our shows served to us, from the now-common 13 episodes with or without the option for more, to limited runs like the 9 episodes HBO's The Newsroom just completed. Suits, which airs on the USA Network, will have its midseason finale tonight and return for the rest of its third season next year. And while that's m...
