Devious Maids has been compared to Desperate Housewives, but after watching the first two episodes of Marc Cherry's latest primetime soap, it's distinctive enough to stand out from the former ABC hit.
A prepares a lovely meal of rice, string beans and a bird. But worry not -- Tippi is alive and well, feeding on the piece of poultry A's feeding her. Cannibalism. This is a new level.
As two queer female filmmakers, we were interested in doing a series of interviews with queer women in the TV world. Over the next month we will be chatting with amazing women who have penned and directed your favorite shows. We decided to start with writer/director Jamie Babbit.
If I've learned anything from my experience shooting our show, it is that I much prefer the retouched facsimile to the unvarnished original. I could never do their job in real life; tight-rope walking on a razor's edge of endless moral ambiguity.
In week 4, the dreams of eleven boys who are pretty came true in Atlantic City. That's right, readers. Our favorite reality show traveled to the birthplace of the Miss America pageant.
While most people were ready to commit to TV shows and loved them no matter what they did, I was breaking up with TV shows like a serial dater on JDate. Arrested Development was the one show that did not disappoint.
Lydia is planning a salsa party because she likes to "party and have fun" and believes that, as the self-appointed "Friend Whisperer," she can bring cast outcast Alexis to the event and unite everyone under the auspices of Latin rhythms and booze.
Don Draper doesn't kill people. He doesn't cook or deal drugs. He doesn't oversee an organized-crime syndicate. Hell, he doesn't even use the F-word. But there's no question he's a bastard. He lies. He cheats. He undermines his colleagues in ways both overt and underhanded. And yet, in spite of it all, there has always been something about Don that makes us love him anyway. We know what a scoundrel he is, but we just can't quit him.
On May 26 alone, there were more than 2.3 million TV-related tweets. That included over 600,000 for that night's NBA game, 230,000 for The Bachelorette and nearly 58,000 for Arrested Development. And that's just the tip of the social TV iceberg.
Tonight we found out that Bob is not truly a product of the great state of Wisconsin (your loss, Cheddarheads). His identity is as thin and fragile as the pathetic map tacked up on his office wall.
After the snooze fest of last season, this premiere was everything we love about "True Blood" and then some. Is he Billith or still pretty much Bill? We never know! The fact is that we have to wait to find out what crazy underworld powers he's unleashed.
"There's no need to run home to my brother and make it bigger than it is," Teresa says in her interview. Note how she says "my brother" and not "her husband." Teresa still feels like she has ownership over Joe, and she views Melissa as her replacement and mortal enemy.
My husband doesn't hate Mad Men. He likes it a lot. Not as much as I do because my like borders on obsession and fixation. But he likes it. What my husband hates, is me, after I watch Mad Men.
What's most amazing, given commercial television's studied avoidance of the topic, is how often shows like "The Fall" take on topics like misogyny, sexism and the frustrations of limited roles that both genders are often expected to occupy.
>TVO's first commissioned drama series, Hard Rock Medical, provides a fresh and entertaining look at the unique challenges of delivering healthcare in Northern Ontario.
"Food Network Star" feels like sloppy seconds this season -- for good reason. It's the latest reality competition show to fall victim to several reality TV "professionals."
