What new shows is everyone gonna check out?

Since I work in Sit-Coms, I will check them all out. Wondering if Whitney, New Girl and Two Broke Girls will be as good as they are being hyped.

Gonna check out just a few Drama's. If the others are any good I'll catch them on re-run next spring.
I said that Playboy Club and Pan Am would be good if they were on FX, HBO, Showtime, etc.. but will check them out along w/ Persons Unknown and Prime Suspect. Maybe NBC learned a lesson when the canceled Southland and will let their Drama's push the limit, but I doubt it.

Prime Suspect. I wonder if that is based on the English drama of the same name starring Helen Mirren? That was excellent. I may give this one a watch. As for the sit. comedies, I doubt it. I find most of them too predictable and mind numbing (no offense meant to your employment of course :). )

As usual, most of my Prime Time TV will be on paid networks. Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, SOA, Justified, Episodes, Hung, Shameless, etc.

Will still catch old favs like CSI and NCIS, but network TV (especially sitcoms) is so dumbed down that it has become hard to watch.

Hopefully Terra Nova is good.

I'll also watch CSI & NCIS. I watch Bones too but only 'cause my wife likes it. I couldn't care less. There hasn't been a decent sitcom since Seinfeld.

Kat Dennings and the the blonde on the show are easy on the eyes that's for sure.
The show , well I'll give it another chance as I think it can be good.

Saw the Whitney Cummings show and that seemed really forced and labored to me.
Whitney is attractive though.
If you have watched football on NBC or Thursday night comedy shows
on NBC then you saw the funniest bits of the show.(even then they weren't that great) in the ads.
They mega-pushed this show all summer.

2 broke girls is created by Whitney Cummings

Either way both had very forced laughs .
The studio audiences earned their pay that night.

Ya, Kat's easy on the eyes, but holy hell is that show bad. Get that girl some good material and I'll give her another shot (hehe)

Person of Interest seemed...flimsy. It has a decent premise, promising actors and potential, but something about that pilot left a lot to be desired. I'm sure I'll give it a few more weeks to see if it can grow into its own.

Oh, and if you didn't see the first part of the Archer 3-part miniseries that started last week and continued this (finishes next, obviously...3 parts, y'know?) it's Archer at the top of its game. You must go watch it, now!

Two Broke Girls
Up All Night

Pan Am

I think thats pretty much the ones I'm interested in. I usually tivo the pilots and go from there.

I thought Revenge was pretty good. I'm watching it to see the Hamptons (even though its not taped in the Hamptons......) I just love Long Island.
Two Broke Girls - haven't watched yet.
Up All Night - won't be watching that again......
New Girl - loved it
Pan Am - will let you know next week

There might be one or 2 more but I give everything one chance. By the end of the season its the usual few shows for me. I rarely watch tv unless its hockey.

I think Terra Nova could grow into a decent NETWORK show. It won't get that chance. Too pricey/fx too hard to produce on a weekly basis, and the pilot is 2 hours of tremendously boring with the dino money shot coming right before the credits. Try it, maybe you will feel differently. Stephen Lang is a badass and deserves to finally be recognized...sadly I think he won't be on this long because a 'major death' has already been promised in some of the articles I have read.

My feelings exactly. Throw in Blade Runner, Soylent Green, Timeline, and a few more. Obviously they are trying to create another "Lost" where the mysteries of the strange land unfold as time goes by, but there was just too much borrowed and some of it very cliche. That guy who runs the camp is nearly identical to the hard warrior/commander from Avatar. What are the chances that that crochity military guy is really bad, and the young strong black woman who runs the rebel "Sixers" is really good? Or that rebelious teenage son, will continue to get into trouble as he butts heads with the father he hates, yet is really just like him? The original concept seemed promising to me, but the lack of originality in the storylines kinda turned me off.

My question is, when, how, where, why did the erasure happen in the first place? Seriously, it's like...poof, no one remembers Peter, and there's no explanation, no nothing for it.

And there is no reason why it NEEDS to be. Certainly the cable channels can take on more risque material...but the chasm is sooooooooooo wide. Take anything on Fx compared to...Pan Am/Whitney/etc. The difference isn't just the quality of the storytelling, it's the pandering to the lowest standards that the big 3 do that is the most damning. America is trying to speak up and let the networks know that they are tired of being spoken down to. Better/smarter stories allow for better acting opportunities which is drawing in the Glen Close-type actors and when it comes award season they notice. Seriously, you used to never see cable dramas nominated...then it became an exception...now it's the norm. The cable stations are supplanting the big 3 as the new television. In 10 years ABC/NBC/CBS will be as relevant as the current political system. It gives me hope for the future.

It's what i'm always on about... Look, you are tilting at windmills. America has chosen. And they are ****ing stoopid. so...

Thank GAWD for the fact that stations like Fx/AMC and to an extent HBO have no ceiling so when their shows draw high ratings FOR A CABLE SHOW it encourages them. Sadly, when it becomes the norm for them to have high shares they will go lowest common denominator too. AMC is already caving with the Walking Dead struggles and the introduction of reality shows in their upcoming lineup. It is what it is. Enjoy the rare bird that sneaks through while you can.

‘Zombieland’ Writers Penning TV Series That Will Probably Kill Any Chance Of A Movie Sequel > The Playlist (http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/archives/zombieland_writers_penning_tv_series_that_will_pro bably_kill_any_chance_of_/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_content=Google+Reader)


While talk of a “Zombieland 2” has been tossed around for a while now, it looks like the franchise will continue on the small screen instead. Vulture reports that writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have developed a half-hour TV version of the movie. Moreover, this isn’t some pie-in-the-sky project, as talks are underway with Fox and Sony Pictures Television to bring it to the airwaves for the 2012-3 season. If this seems like a smaller-scaled compromise versus getting a new movie in front of cameras, guess again, as apparently this project was first conceived as a TV series years ago.

“The original plan for this was to make it as a TV show,” producer Gavin Polone told Vulture. It was set up over at CBS in 2005 but of course, “they did what networks do, which is to take all the good stuff out.” The idea was tossed over to SyFy who were unable to find a workable budget, but everything worked out in the end, as the 2009 movie was made and became a smash hit. But even in the big screen adventure, there were kernels of the television incarnation present.

“If you watch the movie with that in mind, you will see some remnants of the television show. We have the ‘Zombie Kill of the Week,’ which was always intended to happen every week. The movie ends on a cliffhanger; it doesn’t have a real resolution,” Reese told MTV earlier this years. “[The movie’s ending] is just our guys driving off into the sunset for some new adventures. That’s because that’s how the television pilot ended.”

GRIMM Series Premiere Review (http://collider.com/grimm-series-premiere-review/121649/)


With the amount of content available on television today, shows are fighting for ways to stand out from the pack. While my DVR is dedicated to only a handful of titles, NBC, with their outstanding Thursday night comedy lineup, leads all basic broadcasting channels. Now it looks as if I’ll have to add another NBC series to the list as Grimm could easily turn into one of my new favorite shows.

The network currently has a brilliant marketing strategy that allows you to watch the series premiere in its commercial-free entirety before it airs nationally on Friday, October 28that 9pm. All you have to do is follow their Twitter account, @NBCGrimm, and check your email (or spam) for a direct message with a code. But if you need some more incentive to check it out, hit the jump for my review of the Grimm series premiere.


This is my one quiet hope for the network system. It's got lameduckCHUCK as a lead in and it's already relegated to the FridayNightDeathSlot. Check it out...maybe word of mouth will carry this. Prolly not though. Of all the FABLES ripoffs this is the one the seems to cling closer to the conceit. It's probably smart AND fun, which means it is doomed.

Herc Predicts Imminent Ax-ation For PRIME SUSPECT, PAN AM, BODY OF PROOF And MAN UP!!
Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news. (http://www.aintitcool.com/node/51776)

Wow, did not expect Prime Suspect to fail so badly. Judging by the amount of promotion NBC did, I have to say they are a little surprised too. Looked like a good show for network tv.

in other news


“Terra Nova” gained before the baseball hiatus, leaving “Fringe” alone as most likely to get cancelled. I trust Fox will let it finish out the season, given that The Bishop Boys were gangbusters business before Fox moved them to later in the week.

“Beavis and Butt-head” returned after a 14-year absence to overtake 14-year-old “South Park” as cable’s highest rated comedy. “Boardwalk Empire,” the highest-rating thing on pay cable at the moment, got its third season last week. “Sons of Anarchy,” to the surprise of no one, just was renewed for next year. I imagine FX’s “American Horror Story,” which just hit a personal high, will be back next fall as well.

I TRIED to watch Prime Suspect, as I'm a HUGE fan of the original BBC show, and it just....SUCKED OUTRIGHT. I hate shows with forced "accents" and that show was WAAAAY too New York for my taste. I'm also not that big a fan of Maria Bello, I sort-of liked her on ER, but that was before she toyed with Carter's emotions for two seasons.

TRIED to watch "Whitney" - didn't make it all the way through the pilot, and I went to HS with one of the Executive Producers! Which is strange because I like "2 Broke Girls" - mostly because of Kat Dennings though.

DVRed (and now deleted) Pan Am, Playboy Club and Charlie's Angels. I actually only watched ONE episode of Pan Am, and gave the rest a skip.

Have all of Terra Nova on DVR, but kind of waiting to see if it's worth watching yet.

Watched the pilot of that "How to be a Gentleman" and I thought it was cute, but knew it wasn't going to last.

Hannibal Lecter Series Finds Home on Television - ShockTillYouDrop.com (http://www.shocktillyoudrop.com/news/topnews.php?id=21789)


That proposed Hannibal television series we told you about has a home.

NBC reportedly picked it up and Bryan Fuller will develop a 13-episode run executive produced by Martha De Laurentiis.

Unlike some other shows, Hannibal will not need to deal with going through the "pilot" process. Deadline says if NBC likes the first script Fuller pens, it will go right to series.

What do you think? Read for some "further adventures of Hannibal Lecter?"

The show is said to focus on Lecter's early days and his cat-and-mouse relationship with FBI agent Will Graham.


Ugh.

and in more ' Bryan Fuller attempts to single handedly kill television' news

More on The Munsters Revamp | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central (http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/48642/more-munsters-revamp)


It was back in August when word first broke that NBC had tapped “Pushing Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller to revamp “The Munsters” for the 21st century with more of an edgy, slightly darker hour-long makeover. Not sure if the plan is still to go that route, but whatever Fuller has come up with has NBC executives so happy they may greenlight the series by the end of the week.

When your network is in the kind of ratings toilet NBC is, you have to think outside the box with your programming. Or you can start stocking up on name brands like Hannibal Lecter and “The Munsters”.

Deadline Hollywood has also given us a little more insight into what to expect from Fuller’s revamping of the classic 1960’s sitcom:

Like Fuller’s previous series, Pushing Daisies, the project features striking visuals mixed with all the classic Munsters archetypes. Grandpa Sam Dracula is essentially Dracula who assembled Herman because no man was good enough for his daughter, Lily, a sexy vamp. Lily’s niece, Marilyn the freak, is actually normal, and Lily and Herman’s only child, Eddie, has his werewolf tendencies surface in puberty, forcing the family to relocate to their famous 1313 Mockingbird Lane address.

The talk is of this new version of “The Munsters” becoming a summer replacement series or some sort of network event for later in the year.

Bryan Fuller is clearly a very busy man as we also just told you about him being hired by NBC to write their just-announced Hannibal Lecter TV series. Fuller is also penning a Pinnochio movie for Warner Brothers so if he can help turn a puppet into a real boy, maybe he can also help make NBC into a real network again.

Grimm is not bad but I have to say that, for me anyways, it borders on "meh". Take away that the bad guys of each episode are storybook creatures, it is a mediocre cop show. The creatures thus far are commiting crimes (although horrible) that happen everyday and are commited by regular non-creature scumbags. I am waiting for a troll that deals crack under a bridge.

It hints that cooler things are on the way but thus far I do not find it brilliant.

I guess I could always see Smallville as absurdly funny.

The "One Death/Mind Control/Amnesia Per Episode/Story Arc" was an awesome rule and I felt like the show never really took itself seriously or at least I felt like it didn't...

Whereas Heroes was all "Oooh everybody watch us cus if you save the cheerleader you save the world and we have a big budget and we're on NBC and blah blah blah"

Plus Smallville was a deliberate reinvention of familiar comic characters... Heroes was ripping off the best comic story lines from the last 20 years and passing it off as "original television".

Paul Bettany is headed to cable. The Legion actor has been set as the lead in Showtime’s new pilot Masters of Sex. The series will revolve around sexual education researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson. THR reports that Bettany will play Masters in his first foray into series television. Masters and Johnson pioneered human sexual response research, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of sexual disorders and functions. The two met in 1957, marrying years later in 1971. Their research continued up through the 1990s, until their divorce all but ended their professional partnership.

Whitney was given a chance simply because of the amount of money NBC spent promoting what they thought was a surefire hit. It is still underperforming based on their expectations and part of the reason it was given a chance to grow is that the execs would have lost their jobs if they pulled it after 4 episodes. The Chevy Chase show was promoted incessantly and failed miserably, still it was on WAAAAAAY longer than it should have been. I have no problem with you liking the show...i'm sure it's harmless, but don't give credit for the wrong reasons. NBC would have looked ridiculous if they had pulled Whitney like a regular show. Even that cop show with Maria Bello got a full season because of all the hype they gave it.

GRIMM is pretty much bottom feeder stuff. But, despite that, I find myself liking it. If it were to go away I wouldn't cry too hard though. The lead guy is a stiff and the review that described him as a less emotive Brandon Routh was pretty dead on.

Grimm and Once Upon a Time are both shows that are mindlessly entertaining but I certainly wouldn't miss them if they were gone.

NBC Picks Up Silly Human and Puppet Hybrid Comedy Series THE NEW NABORS From The Jim Henson Company (http://collider.com/nbc-new-nabors-puppet-comedy-jim-henson-company/127760/)


Between NBC picking up Whitney, looking to can Community, and sitting low on the networks rankings, it’s clear that the Peacock is not at the top of their game. As a matter of fact, the network is so desperate, they’re looking to inspiration from their past success to fuel their future endeavors. Back in the 80′s the network found some laughs and big ratings with their puppet and human hybrid series ALF, and now Deadline reports the network has just picked up The New Nabors, a series from the Jim Henson Company following a human family who deals with the repercussions of living next door to a family of puppets.

I guess that makes sense since Cousin Skeeter has probably been out of work for awhile, and with all the caller ID available on phones nowadays, Crank Yankers have to be looking for work. But seriously, this kind of project kind of screams desperation, and sounds cheesy as hell. But perhaps if the right people from Jim Henson’s offices are involved, the same kind of energy infused into The Muppets, hitting theaters this weekend, could end up on the small screen. Of course I’d rather just see The Muppet Show make a comeback again. Afterlife writer John Hoffman and 30 Rock executive producer John Riggi will write the script which was developed with Lisa Henson and all will executive produce the show longtime Henson producer Alex Rockwell. Maybe this could turn out to be something solid like Greg the Bunny, which was cancelled all too soon? We’ll see.

Another Reason to Keep COMMUNITY on the Air: Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice (http://collider.com/community-beetlejuice-cameo/128572/)


NBC has pulled Community from the network’s midseason schedule so we can all continue to enjoy the magic of the wretched new sitcom, Whitney. In fairness, NBC has given Dan Harmon‘s hilarious and brilliant sitcom over two seasons to find an audience and that audience has never come. But the ones who have shown up (i.e. smart people) have been rewarded with references so clever that sometime they cannot be seen with the naked eye…or at least not in a single episode (or even a single TV series).

Case in point: a Community fan recently noticed that the show had directly referenced Tim Burton‘s Beetlejuice once per season for the past three seasons, which would of course complete the eponymous character’s summoning chant, “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice.” On any other show, that would simply be a coincidence and a writer’s room that liked the 1988 comedy as a go-to reference. On Community, it’s par for the course. Hit the jump to check out the proof of Beetlejuice summoning and hope that a Michael Keaton guest spot is on the way.

ALCATRAZ Teaser Trailer (http://collider.com/alcatraz-teaser-trailer/128955/)


Here’s the gigantic official synopsis for Alcatraz:


From executive producer J.J. Abrams (FRINGE, “Lost,” “Star Trek” and the upcoming “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” and “Super 8″) and writer and executive producer Elizabeth Sarnoff (“Lost,” “Deadwood”) comes ALCATRAZ, the chilling new thriller centered on America’s most infamous prison and one-time home to the nation’s most notorious murderers, rapists, kidnappers and thieves.

When San Francisco Police Department DET. REBECCA MADSEN (Sarah Jones, “Sons of Anarchy”) is assigned to a grisly homicide case, a fingerprint leads her to a shocking suspect: JACK SYLVANE (guest star Jeffrey Pierce, “The Nine”), a former Alcatraz inmate who died decades ago. Given her family history – both her grandfather and surrogate uncle, RAY ARCHER (Robert Forster, “Jackie Brown”), were guards at the prison – Madsen’s interest is immediately piqued, and once the enigmatic, knows-everything-but-tells-nothing government agent EMERSON HAUSER (Sam Neill, “Jurassic Park”) tries to impede her investigation, she’s doggedly committed. Madsen turns to Alcatraz expert and comic book enthusiast, DR. DIEGO “DOC” SOTO (Jorge Garcia, “Lost”), to piece together the inexplicable sequence of events. The twosome discovers that Sylvane is not only alive, but he’s loose on the streets of San Francisco, leaving bodies in his wake. And strangely, he hasn’t aged a day since he was in Alcatraz, when the prison was ruled by the iron-fisted WARDEN EDWIN JAMES (Jonny Coyne, “Undercovers”) and the merciless ASSOCIATE WARDEN E.B. TILLER (Jason Butler Harner, “The Changeling”).

Madsen and Soto reluctantly team with Agent Hauser and his technician, LUCY BANERJEE (Parminder Nagra, “ER”), to stop Sylvane’s vengeful killing spree. By delving into Alcatraz history, government cover-ups and Rebecca’s own heritage, the team will ultimately discover that Sylvane is only a small part of a much larger, more sinister present-day threat. For while he may be the first, it quickly becomes clear that Sylvane won’t be the last prisoner to reappear from Alcatraz.

Through the course of the investigation, Madsen and Soto will learn that Agent Hauser has known about the prison’s secret history and has been awaiting the prisoners’ return. Soto will witness his life’s work – the history of Alcatraz – come alive. Madsen will be forced to keep her supportive San Francisco cop fianc?, JIMMY DICKENS (Santiago Cabrera, “Heroes”), at arm’s length from the highly classified assignment as she sees everything she thought she knew about her family’s past shattered, all while fighting to keep the country safe from history’s most dangerous criminals.

ALCATRAZ is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The series is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk (FRINGE) and Elizabeth Sarnoff. Steven Lilien (“Kyle XY”) & Bryan Wynbrandt (“Kyle XY”) and Sarnoff wrote the pilot, and Danny Cannon (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “CSI: Miami”) directed and executive-produced the pilot.

Well, it wasn't exactly THE call: "Pan Am" will only shoot 14 episodes this season, including the 13 full episodes ABC originally ordered. It also ordered five additional scripts, and will shoot and air one of them, a person at ABC said. The person said it is unlikely to shoot the four remaining scripts this season.

But ABC and Sony Pictures Television, the studio that produces the show, say it is not canceled. A person at Sony says that the studio and network are negotiating over how many more episodes the series will shoot this season, and that ABC will decide later whether it will return for a second season, but that it remains very much in contention.

Ok, thanks to a bad bout of food poison I was able to get all caught up on Homeland. It's a good show, i'll give it that, but I was expecting more. It has a lot of faults and they don't go out of their way to sustain any level of suspense. They introduce ideas and just leave them(her mental condition/the nightime looking for mr goodbar/Saul failing the polygraph noticeably) they may be looking to come back to them but to just introduce these points and then abandon them is bad storytelling. The is he/isn't he aspect is tiresome too. It makes it hard to identify/sympathise with anyone and therefore it keeps you from getting emotionally involved. What Carrie has done from the beginning is preposterous and more than borderline criminal as well. I guess I just expected a more traditional suspenseful show. I will keep watching, because it is not horrible...but it certainly could be a lot better.

BD Horror News - TV: Character Details and Plot for 'The Munsters' Pilot! (http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/27447)


We're exclusively told by insiders that this will NOT be a remake of the original 1964 series that starred Fred Gwynne, Al Lewis and Yvonne De Carlo as a family of friendly monsters have misadventures never quite realizing why people react to them so strangely.

The modern take will instead be strange hybrid of the popular comedy "Modern Family" and HBO's "True Blood". While the series will be dark there will be a lot of heart and comedic elements. While I'm a huge fan of Bryan Fuller's "Dead Like Me", his "Pushing Daisies" never grabbed my attention, and frankly neither were any good at character development. The follow, though, gives me some series hope. There are a lot of interesting people moving into 1313 Mockingbird Lane...

The pilot episode, which is to be directed by Bryan Singer - who also was behind the camera for the "House" pilot, Superman Returns and X-Men - will focus on 10-year-old Eddie Munster who is unaware that he's a werewolf, and that his family is composed of terrifying creatures. The madness begins when a baby bear attacks a scouting trip, only it turns out that this "bear" is actually Eddie transformed into a werewolf. Eddie is unaware of his metamorphosis and it forces the family to move in order to protect the family secret. The coming of age story gets weirder as he fights against his family when he learns of a shocker: they're a family of flesh-eaters!

A few other random character notes: Lily Munster has an eating disorder and eats suicide victims. Grandpa Munster is a 600-year-old shapeshifter, and Marilyn Munster was adopted when her mother tried to eat her as a baby.


Oh man this just gets worse and worse...

And Saul's sympathy/guilt was certainly a better reaction than if he had done the obvious and gotten pissed that Carrie kept another secret from him. It was almost as if he understood better and it actually brought him closer to her.

Agree completely. The suspense was ridiculous when Brody was in that bunker. Really well done. AND they managed to defy my expectations and in one episode lay the groundwork for a potentially very good second season. The memory card is the key to everything. Really good acting all around(except for the wife) and some heartbreaking moments(the cell phone call). I thought most of the season was uneven but they ended very strong. Looking forward to season 2.

Hmmm, kinda what I thought, but if you are still watching it still that says something. I do like Robert Carlyle a lot. Is it clever? It looks like it could be. That's what interested me. I love FABLES and this is such a clearly 'inspired by' show. I get the feeling that this would disappoint because of oversimplification.

Carlyle is way too over the top half of the time but really excellent the other half.

It's not terribly clever and it does totally suffer from oversimplification but mostly it suffers from overLOSTification.

I think the over-the-topness might be due to the broad strokes of the show, and the aforementioned over-simplification. But maybe I am just defending Carlyle. And yeah...it's got a lot of Losties behind the scenes and it is clear that ABC still is laboring to capture lightning in a bottle again. I still think I might give it a shot when it hits boxset.

I think it's either a choice Carlyle is making or it's a direct request from the director. It's all overly physical and too flourishy.

And you can tell it's loaded with LOST creative talent. They make tons of allusions to the show in general and it has the dual storytelling gimmick and it relies too heavily on schmaltz.

But I still enjoy watching it.

Honestly my biggest complaint is that Snow White isn't nearly pretty enough.

Even More on The Munsters Redux | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central (http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/49538/even-more-munsters-redux)


Moviehole landed the entire enchilada on what to expect from the pilot episode. Be warned... It's lengthy and covers everything so if you still wanna be surprised, steer clear of the above linkage.

The pilot episode, which is to be directed by Bryan Singer - who also was behind the camera for the "House" pilot, Superman Returns and X-Men - will focus on 10-year-old Eddie Munster, who is unaware that he's a werewolf and his family is composed of terrifying creatures. The madness begins when a baby bear attacks a scouting trip, only it turns out that this "bear" is actually Eddie transformed into a werewolf. Eddie is unaware of his metamorphosis, and it forces the family to move in order to protect the family secret. The coming of age story gets weirder as he fights against his family when he learns of a shocker: they're flesh-eaters!


What might be a good idea if only they did not try to coattail it onto a Munsters retromake. Part of me is at least happy that they are going out of their way to distance it from the original, until I realize again that they are using the original to somehow draw in an audience. This is a shining example of what is wrong, something new and a little different, yet packaged in the most cynical/abusive way.

"The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Magaret"

I haven't seen this show mentioned here but I caught some episodes on new years day marathon (IFC)
I heard about it but for whatever reason never saw any shows till now.

Stars Will Arnett and David Cross .
Pretty F'in funny.

Nice to see David Cross in a role were he is the butt of the jokes and a complete ass instead of him being Mr Snarky Pants all the time.
Don't get me wrong I think the guy is funny but his hipster holier than thou stand up schtick was getting boring to me.

New episodes start to air on Friday along with Portlandia on IFC.
I have high hopes for both this season.

I agree with you about Cross. He's a bit of a humorless prig and a hypocrite. He will sign on for the horrid Chipmonks movies, cash the check, and then say how it was a soul killing experience. Can't have yer cake and eat it dude.

But if anyone is interested, they are having an event at cinefamily on Jan 9th...


$10/free for members

THE Q&A FROM THIS EVENT WILL BE LIVE-STREAMED ON THE CINEFAMILY BLOG AT APPROX. 10:30pm (PST) ON JANUARY 9TH!

Join David Cross in person for a special presentation of what’s possibly his most warped creation ever! Created, written by, and starring Cross (“Arrested Development”, “Mr. Show”), IFC’s “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret” follows the awkward misadventures of an American office temp/convenient liar who bluffs his way into a senior sales position heading up the London office for the new energy drink/toxic poison Thunder Muscle. Aided in his imbecilic gaffes and misfortunes by his mysteriously devious and sometimes useless assistant (Blake Harrison of “The Inbetweeners”), Todd inadvertently wrecks havoc on the entire city of London, to devastatingly hilarious results. Co-starring Will Arnett, Janeane Garofalo, Amber Tamblyn and Russ Tamblyn. Come watch a special feature-length edition of Season One with us, followed by a Q&A with David Cross — and catch Season Two on IFC, Fridays at 10:30pm starting January 6th!

There should be some kind of limit on people saying something was a soul crushing experience. I spent 6 weeks working in a Salmon cannery in Dillingham, Alaska in the summer of 2000. I worked from 7am to 1am every god damned day for 7 days a week for 6 straight weeks with only two days off sprinkled in near the end.

THAT was a soul crushing experience and I went home with a half dozen fresh frozen Sockeyes and less than $10,000.

If you make 6 figures for a few weeks of filming on a ****ty CGI kids movie that spins off two sequels that continue to pay you... that's NOT soul crushing. Anybody who considers that soul crushing should be forced into a ****ing coal mine for 30 days.

David Cross isn't even funny.

And I don't want to hear any Arrested Development apologists. He's funny in that playing a complete tool. Good for him.

Dude , come on take a chill pill or whatever you do to relax .
That is a bit much don't you think?
Especially coming from some one who digs "New Girl"
That is a very lugubrious show to watch.
Everything seems labored on that gig.
Don't get me wrong I am fully supporting anything that gets Zoey D. on TV with any regularity but
that show is a bit well . . . . .

Maybe it will get better , I will continue watching and hope . . . . . .

Again David Cross' character is the butt of the jokes and comes out looking like an ass in the show.
I would think if you don't like the guy this would be enough to keep you watching to see how much they
cut him down.

Of course it helps if you like Will Arnet and the guy from the Inbetweeners (Neil on that show , Dave on this one)

In order to survive, Netflix is getting in the business of producing and distributing original content alongside their portfolio of catalog movies (a model first made profitable by HBO). I’m sure you’ve all read that they will be brining back Arrested Development in 2013. A couple other series are in the works, the first of which will premiere on Monday, February 6th 2012. Lilyhammer is the fish-out-of-water story of a New York mobster who enters the federal witness protection program after ratting on his boss. Sopranos veteran and E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt plays Frank “The Fixer” Tagliano. Netflix has released a 3 minute trailer for the series

Martin Campbell to Direct ABC Pilot THE LAST RESORT (http://collider.com/martin-campbell-the-last-resort/135404/)


Coming off the lackluster Green Lantern, director Martin Campbell is dipping his toe back into television. THR reports that Campbell has signed on to direct the pilot for the thriller The Last Resort. The series centers on “the crew of a U.S. nuclear submarine who, after ignoring an order to fire nuclear missiles, wind up being hunted and escape to a NATO outpost where they declare themselves to be the world’s smallest nuclear nation.” It’s a fantastic premise, and The Shield’s Shawn Ryan and Dead Like Me’s Karl Gajdusek are the key creative team behind the futuristic drama. In addition to directing the pilot, Campbell will serve as executive producer.

I liked all 3 as well. Emmy Rossum, Dawn Olivieri, Natasha McElhone.......Nice!! None of the 3 are shows where I'm looking for some large meaning or message about something - I'm just enjoying the eye candy and the humor. But more especially the eye candy. I hope Dawn Olivieri's character gets a lot more time in future episodes of House of Lies. The show could flat out suck and I'd watch it just to watch her. Yea, I'm can be a sexiest pig sometimes! :smile:

Frank Darabont returns to TV! TNT developing LA Noir pilot!
Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news. (http://www.aintitcool.com/node/52543)


Now here’s the full press release:



TNT has ordered a pilot for L.A. Noir, a new drama series from executive producers Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead, The Shawshank Redemption), Michael De Luca (The Social Network, Moneyball) and Elliot Webb (Tall Time Tales). The project from TNT Original Productions is based on John Buntin’s critically acclaimed book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City, which chronicles the epic battle between Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker and mobster Mickey Cohen. Alissa Phillips (Moneyball) of Michael De Luca Productions serves as co-executive producer. Darabont is set to write and direct the pilot.

“The story of L.A. Noir is inspired by an incredibly dramatic period in the history of Los Angeles," said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "This project is a sweeping tale of the battle for the soul of the city that was waged between the forces of the LAPD and the West Coast mob. We’re thrilled to be working with Frank Darabont and Michael De Luca, two award-winning storytellers behind some of the most entertaining films of the past two decades, as they to bring this intense and exciting crime-drama to TNT.”

“Noir is a passion of mine, so I feel blessed to delve into a project that speaks in the hardboiled vernacular,” said Darabont. “John Buntin’s superb book, though non-fiction, is our touchstone and inspiration for the stories we’ll be telling, weaving fiction throughout the facts and facts throughout the fiction. The book provides elements that are irresistible, a big canvas with endless possibilities. The goal is to deliver on the tone that the title L.A. Noir promises: a smart, gritty, authentic, period noir drama. Also a blessing is the warm welcome we’ve gotten from Michael Wright and TNT, a great bunch of folks with huge enthusiasm for the source material. The best bonus of all is getting to work with my friend Mike De Luca. He’s terrific, a tremendously smart and talented producer, a gem. Partnering with him on this marvelous project after knowing him for so many years is an absolute treat for me.”

“It has been a personal dream of mine to work with Frank Darabont since he was kind of enough to become my friend when we met in the late 1980s," said De Luca. "He’s been an inspiration to me ever since. There is no one working at his level today who puts more integrity and humanity into their efforts to create lasting and original entertainment. This rich source material is a perfect fit for his talents, and we’re grateful to Michael Wright and TNT for this amazing opportunity.”

L.A. Noir is the true story of a decades-long conflict between the Los Angeles Police Department, under the determined leadership of Police Chief William Parker, and ruthless criminal elements led by Mickey Cohen, a one-time boxer who rose to the top of L.A.’s criminal world. The series is a fast-paced crime drama set in Los Angeles during the 1940s and '50s. It's a world of glamorous movie stars, powerful studio heads, returning war heroes, a powerful and corrupt police force and an even more dangerous criminal network determined to make L.A. its West Coast base.

Fox: TERRA NOVA Makes Money!! FRINGE Loses Money!! GREGORY Is Dead!! HOUSE and GLEE May Not Be Back Next Season!!
Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news. (http://www.aintitcool.com/node/52536)


The Fox events at the Television Critics Association yielded updates on much of its programming.

* “Terra Nova” has not yet been renewed for a second season, but Fox Network entertainment president Kevin Reilly says the show made money for Fox but says “creatively, the show was hunting.” (Prior reports indicate Fox intends to keep Brannon Braga aboard was showrunner if “Nova” returns.) The special effects reportedly demand Fox make a decision on season two by April.

* “Fringe” won’t be back unless Warner Bros. starts charging less. “We lose a lot of money on the show,” said Reilly. “At that rating on that night it’s almost impossible for us to make money. We are not in the business of losing money, so we’re trying to figure out if there a number at which we can continue with the series. We haven’t even sat down with the producers yet.”

* Jonah Hill’s “Allen Gregory” has been cancelled. Apparently Fox ordered it just to keep the “Simpsons” cast in line.

* “House” and “Glee” are not yet locks for next season, but “Glee” seems much more likely to be renewed given its ratings:

NBC Picks Up Pilots Midnight Sun and Do No Harm from Universal TV | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central (http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/49898/nbc-picks-pilots-midnight-sun-and-do-no-harm-universal-tv)



NBC has picked up two drama pilots from its sister studio, Peter Traugott’s new Universal TV production company, and while they both sound more "thriller" than horror, one seems to have a "Twin Peaks" vibe and the other sounds like yet another spin on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde so we figured we'd mention them and then see how Dread-worthy they turn out to be.

Here's the breakdown per Deadline:

"Midnight Sun", based on the Israeli series "Timrot Ashan", aka "Pillars of Smoke", is a thriller following the mysterious disappearance of a group living on a commune in Alaska. The Alaska setting is appropriate given that the original series is being described as "Twin Peaks" meets "Northern Exposure" meets "Lost". "Midnight Sun" centers on a female FBI cult specialist who starts an investigation that uncovers a larger conspiracy. Lisa Zwerling ("The Event", "FlashForward") wrote the adaptation and is executive producing the pilot with Peter Traugott ("Ringer", "Samantha Who?"), Rachel Kaplan, and Alon Aranya.

"Do No Harm" is a medical drama about a brilliant neurosurgeon who wrestles with his dangerous alter-ego that threatens to wreak havoc on his personal and professional life. David Schulner ("The Event") wrote the script and is executive producing with Traugott and Kaplan.

Like we said above, should either or both of these potential series wind up on the horror side of the fence, we'll keep you posted on their progress. One thing's for sure - it looks like NBC is taking its success with "Grimm" to heart and focusing a lot more closely on genre(ish) projects.

I see the event far too much in those credits...does NBC ever learn?

Season 1 of Homeland is going to be a tough act to follow. What can you say about Season 2, and whether it will pick up right where it left off or whether it might go forward in time a bit?

NEVINS: Well, I wouldn’t necessarily assume that Season 2 begins the day after Season 1 ended. I do know some things about it. It’s been an interesting show in that I read a lot of, “Well, last week was good. Where are they going to go now? How are they going to top it?” And, I like that. I think it’s justified skepticism. With Season 1, I think they pulled it off. Most people seemed to really like the finale. I think there is a general attitude of, “Well, Season 1 worked. What the hell are they going to do in Season 2?” And, I think the writers have some very clever answers for that. I have to say that it is very fun to work on that kind of show, where people are wanting to know what’s going on, and you’re just trying to stay one step ahead.

Have you seen any full scripts, or have you been made aware of the overall direction?

NEVINS: No. I can’t even say I know the overall. Alex [Gansa] and Howard [Gordon] and I talk all the time, and there are a lot of what-ifs. I’m sure they know more than I know, but to get it right, you’ve got to take your time. One thing that I know will be central next year is that Brody (Damian Lewis) and Carrie (Claire Danes) have only just begun. There’s an enormous amount that’s unresolved. One way or the other, that will be a central issue in Season 2. I’ll leave it at that.


Very interested to see if they can reach the heights that season 1 hit.

CBS Greenlights New Contemporary Sherlock Holmes Series ELEMENTARY (http://collider.com/elementary-cbs-sherlock-holmes/138650/)

Why???


The contemporary series Sherlock, which takes the iconic detective and brings him into modern day Britain just garnered a third season, but now CBS is going to try and bring the classic literary character to the United States with a new series called Elementary. THR reports the network has just given the greenlight to the series from writer Robert Doherty who will also executive produce with Sarah Timberman (Unforgettable) and Carl Beverly. There aren’t any details on the series except that in will see Sherlock living in New York City. That could very well mean this won’t be a British detective anymore. Honestly, I can’t say I’m all that thrilled with the prospect since the BBC has delivered such a stellar contemporary series already, but we’ll see what happens.
