TV show titles tend to range from brilliant, clever and witty to clunky, vague, awkward and in some cases, just plain misleading. Some titles overcome their initial problems, while others go down in history as being among the more memorably bad series names. Rather than listing off our favorite terrible TV titles, we found ourselves breaking down the title problems by category.
Every once in a while, in between covering reality TV and stories about yet another ill-conceived remake, I get to write up a post that puts a big stupid grin on my face. This is one of those occasions. Netflix has added the brilliant, tragically short-lived, and unforgivably underwatched series Terriers to their Instant Watch catalogue. You need to add it to your queue, like, right freaking now.
When it comes to TV shows, Shawn Ryan’s typically known for procedurals with a hint of serialization. Shows like The Shield, Terriers and Lie To Me are a fair blend of both. From the description of his latest TV venture, Ryan is thinking much further outside the box.
To say the ratings were good for Wilfred’s debut on FX this week would be an understatement. Factoring in the encore telecast, the dog-themed comedy series based on a popular Australian show managed to score the network’s highest ever premiere ratings for a comedy series. Louie’s ratings were nothing to shake a stick at either.
The Television Critics Association (TCA) announced the nominations for the 2011 TCA Awards. Among the series to receive multiple nominations are Game of Thrones, NBC’s Parks and Recreation and Community, and FX’s Justified.
This feels familiar. FX airs a series that’s different, a little bit dark but filled with interesting characters and a story with loads of potential. The critics like it, as do the viewers but the ratings don’t reflect the quality or potential of the series and it inevitably gets cancelled. It happened before with Terriers and unfortunately, Lights Out is singing the same tune.
According to a tweet posted yesterday by series creator Shawn Ryan, tonight’s episode of The Chicago Code has been written by Tim Minear and Jon Worley, both of whom wrote for Ryan’s last series, the unfortunately short-lived FX drama Terriers. They'll be answering questions via Twiter tonight! More on that, as well as details and some video clips from the episode ahead!
TV delivered on many levels this year but that doesn’t mean there weren’t disappointments. In fact, we came up with a whole list of them.
Whether they were saving the day, solving or fighting crime, making us laugh, making us gasp or delivering one great moment after another, 2010 had no shortage of great male characters.
We were only one of many websites and bloggers begging our readers to watch the show, which starred Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James as private detectives
While some of us anxiously await the word on Terriers’ future at FX, there is still one episode left for the first season and we have a promo as well as a clip to share with you.
Terriers is about to wrap up for the season, after which at some point FX will make their decision as to whether or not to pick the series up for a second season. I’m here to ask (beg) FX to give Terriers a do-over
This week on Terriers, an old wound will be ripped wide open for Hank. Read on for more details on Terriers' "Sins of the Past," which was written by Tim Minear.
Terriers has been consistently awesome all season and tomorrow night’s episode is no exception. We have some clips and a trailer for the episode to share with you!
If you’ve been watching Terriers then you know that Hank and Britt were once on opposite sides of the law. Next Wednesday’s episode will revisit that side of their story. Read on for more details and some video clips from the episode!
