The Emmy Awards: TV Review

The Emmy Awards: TV Review

After Emmy voters had one of their worst years ever in the nominating process, Monday's ceremony ultimately came down to whether they'd at least get the winners right. And, as is custom, whether the host — in this case, Seth Meyers — and the telecast itself, could entertain.

'Intruders': TV Review

'Intruders': TV Review

Even before seeing a frame of Intruders, all the ideas sounded good. For starters, you have writer and creator Glen Morgan (The X-Files) getting to make a real X-Files-style show. That’s a good thing. And, since so many actors seem to be British these days, it seemed extra clever that this BBC America series, which takes place in the Pacific Northwest, chose to use a bunch of British actors but have them play Americans. Everybody gets it. So let’s play.

The Alternative Emmys: Recasting the Big Categories

The Alternative Emmys: Recasting the Big Categories

An argument can be made that the yearly snubs in the Emmy nomination process generate more attention (and column space) than the the nods voters get right without having to be nagged. Now all that's left is to hand out the actual awards on Monday and let the critics and fans have one last round of joy/ranting (joyful ranting?) about the winners and losers.

Blood, Guts and Gory: Tim Goodman on the Rise of Gross TV

This story first appeared in the Aug. 22 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

There's a lot I love about NBC's Hannibal — the incredible cinematography, the bold storytelling, the Grand Guignol approach. But there's also something that I really don't like: Watching it.

'Legends': TV Review

'Legends': TV Review

Television needs its comfort food even more so now that so many complex and difficult dramas are available. Sometimes you just need a show that feels familiar, keeps you entertained and ends without, say, someone being stoned to death or some sort of mysterious, ominous clue.

'Outlander': TV Review

'Outlander': TV Review

It will be interesting to see if the fans of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books will tune in to the Starz series that premieres Saturday night. If they do, the pay cable channel may have quite a hit on its hands. If they don't, Outlander might just be another interesting shot in the dark for a channel looking to stand out.

TCA: The 20 Best Panels

TCA: The 20 Best Panels

At the heart of the Television Critics Association press tour, which ends on Wednesday with PBS closing the door after 16 days, are the panels. What are they? Well, at their best, a good barometer of an upcoming show. At their worst, a pointless exercise in unrevealing answers, vapidity and the belief that just by existing, magic will happen with a series.
