The Comedians 109-01

The Comedians

Directed by David Mandel
Written by Laura Kittrell
Starring Billy Crystal, Josh Gad, Stephnie Weir, Max Oberg, Megan Ferguson, Denis O’Hare
FX
Air Date: Thursday, June 4th, 2015 10pm

We’ve all been there. At the mall, or the supermarket, we go to park our car and someone has parked over the line, and taken up two spots. Or perhaps, you park first and later find your car damaged by some moron next to you. Now imagine this idiot is your co-worker… worse, your co-star. For Billy Crystal, this is reality.

The Comedians Orange IsThe New Black Guy

The Comedians
Season 1 Episode 6 “Orange You The New Black Guy”
Directed by Larry Charles
Written by Matt Nix, Ben Wexler
Starring Billy Crystal, Josh Gad, Megan Ferguson, Larry Charles, Stephnie Weir, Denis O’Hare
FX
Air Date: Thursday, May 14th, 2015 10pm

When renowned entertainment journalist Elvis Mitchell shows up on The Comedians, I mean “The Billy And Josh Show,” set for an interview, Josh Gad notices him peeking around. There are NO minorities on the set of the Billy and Josh Show… except for that Asian writer; but he’s just “off white.” So Billy (Billy Crystal) and Josh hit the PC panic button and go to Kristen (Stephnie Weir) demanding they hire of more people of color. I suddenly started humming the song from Broadway’s Avenue Q, “Everybody’s a Little Racist.”

Directed by Larry Charles
Written by Laura Krafft
Starring Billy Crystal, Josh Gad, Megan Ferguson, Larry Charles, Stephnie Weir, Denis O’Hare
FX
Air Date: Thursday, May 7th, 2015 10pm

The big news this week on The Comedians is that Josh (Josh Gad) is apparently up for a role in the new Scorsese movie as the “Jew lawyer” to DiCaprio’s mobster. Josh has taken to accepting phone calls during shooting and is on a juice cleanse to slim down for Marty. Billy (Billy Crystal) tries to prepare Josh for the possibility of the role falling through, which many on set believe to be a sign of Billy’s jealousy, his wife included.

FX
Air Date: Thursday, April 30th, 2015 10pm

Last week The Comedians finally hit its stride and was laugh out loud funny. Josh Gad and Billy Crystal created magic while high in a late-night convenience store and as a result missed an awards show where both were nominated. FX President Denis Grant (Denis O’Hare) is delaying the premiere. Billy sees the writing on the wall, especially when Kristen (Stephnie Weir) compares them to mold… you know, in a positive way.

I Wanna Do Bad Things With You: A Look Back At ‘True Blood’s Villains

True Blood Villains Banner

True Blood, that campy vampire HBO series based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris set in fictional Bon Temps, Louisiana, came to an end last night, Sunday, August 24th, with Season 7 Episode 10 finale “Thank You.” The series revolves around telepath Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and her supernatural (and non) lovers, relatives, and friends.

No good vampire/werewolf/fairy/shapeshifter/medium/witch show would be complete without a formidable foe (or foes) for the plucky heroes and heroines to stand against. Some were silly, some were horrifying, some were lunatics, some were the heroes and heroines themselves, and some deserved their own late night Cinemax show, but they all had the common thread of being thoroughly entertaining. Sookie and her posse always prevailed (with some casualties). But, it’s all come to an end now, so it’s time to take a look back at the Villains from each season.

Top 5 TV Bad Guys

Sometimes we hate bad guys. The combination of excellent writing, directing, and acting for a villain can get us lost in the story and in our distaste for the character. I have a huge amount of respect for actors and television shows that can pull this off; however, there is another type of antagonist that I think we can all appreciate just as much, if not more. I’m sure you guessed it by the title: it’s the maniacal big baddies who not only scare us, but also make us laugh with glee. Check out this list below of crazy television bad guys we can’t help but love. I think you’ll agree – but feel free to comment and let us know who your favorites are too!

American Horror Story (2011)

American Horror Story
Season 1, Episode 1 – Pilot
Directed by Ryan Murphy
Written by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk
Starring Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Jamie Brewer, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare
FX
Air Date: Wednesday, October 5, 2011 10pm

American Horror Story, the new series from Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, seems to be heading in a potentially interesting direction if the pilot episode is anything to go by. But I won’t be going along with them.

First off I’m not exactly the biggest fan of Murphy (whose other crimes against pop culture include creating Nip/Tuck and writing and directing Eat, Pray, Love) or any members of the American Horror Story cast, including Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton (although she was good on Spin City and Friday Night Lights), and Jessica Lange. It’s a mixed bag of overrated talent that grates my nerves whenever any of them are on screen and it doesn’t help the actors that the characters they play are unsympathetic and the material dull and pretentious. By the way, this is supposed to be a haunted house story.
