FX’s newest comedy series The Comedians, starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad, is a strange beast. Nearly every second of it is unabashedly self-sabotaging and rude in some way. But…but…it’s also pretty goddamned hilarious once you take the time to understand how it’s molding itself.
Although an emotional and inspirational story, A.D. The Bible Continues starts out with fast-paced action, thanks to raging mobs and a funky score that keep things moving. The story eventually slows down, but there’s a lot to get through during the first episode. Here's what we thought.
Since 2008, Marvel Studios has made a name for itself as the company that excels in making big, fun comic book-based adventures. The new series Daredevil doesn’t fit into this mold, but in exploring a new color, Marvel has just found yet another corner of the comic book world to dominate.
Fox's Weird Loners is the newest project from King of Queens creator Michael J. Weithorn, You’ll notice pretty quickly that the “weird” and “loners” parts of the title don’t really fit this mostly normal group of friends, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth your time.
Watching the first few episodes of CW's iZombie, it becomes apparent with most certainty that Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero's new series ate the brain of Veronica Mars and acquired some of the beloved teen detective drama's best personality traits.
Frequently, cop shows like the 'new' CSI: Cyber are simply carbon copies of their originals--new faces in a new setting with the same old everything else. It's so formulaic and uninspired, it might as well have been written and directed by computers.
Patton Oswalt recently went on an epic Twitter rant to express his appreciation for what Television has to offer, dropping more than a few titles in the process.
A mysterious stone, a set of connecting tunnels hidden beneath Jerusalem and a cult hidden in broad daylight in the desert are all facets of Dig, USA’s thrilling new action series. The latest show from Heroes’ Tim Kring and Homeland’s Gideon Raff offers a unique setting and intricate storytelling—hallmarks of both men’s work.
Assuming the writing and humor keep pace with what we’ve seen here – and considering pilots are usually the weakest episodes, that very well could be – then Battle Creek will likely (and hopefully) find a long-lasting home on CBS.
Created by Will Forte, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Fox's The Last Man On Earth follows Forte's Phil Miller as he comes to terms with being the titular last man on Earth. And, living up to the title, the new comedy is truly singular, both an incredibly funny and kind of tragic series. A must-see tragicomedy.
Serial crime dramas are becoming more and more popular. This season, in fact, we’ve seen Gracepoint and now Secrets & Lies hit the network schedule. The two shows have plenty in common: dead boys, doggedly determined detectives and some good performances.
As the history of television has taught us, the first episode of a series can often be the worst in retrospect. And when it comes to CBS' update on The Odd Couple, we can only hope that's the case.
Like a huge chunk of the programming on network TV, NBC’s Cold War throwback Allegiance stands in the shadow of a previously established series – in this case, FX’s The Americans – and would have been a better fit for audiences had it premiered when it was first conceived. Still, at least it's not Law & Order: Russian Intelligence.
It's hard to believe that ABC kept Fresh Off The Boat until the midseason. Perhaps, it wasn't ready for a fall premiere but the sitcom is easily one of the strongest new network comedies, on ABC, or otherwise and one they should have used as the showcase of their new lineup, not tucked it away in the second wave of premieres.
I was worried Season 2 might get off to a slow start, but director Steve Boyum’s premiere is quick out of the gate, thrusting straight into gory action and pirate plotting, as well as introducing a brand new villain. This isn’t the series we left behind last spring.
