“The Bridge” just aired what may be its final episode. (I reviewed the finale here.) A few weeks ago, I spoke with producer Elwood Reid at length about this much-improved second season, which didn’t leave a ton left to ask after the finale. But I emailed him a few questions, and I have his answers coming up just as soon as I bring my rubber band ball…
A quick review of last night's "New Girl" coming up just as soon as I save you from a hideous river disease...
A review of tonight's "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" coming up just as soon as I still have my George Foreman grill...
I posted my review of "Manhattan Love Story" this morning. Now it's your turn. For those who tuned in tonight, what did you think? Did the notion that men think about breasts while women think about purses rock your comedic world? Did you like Analeigh Tipton or feel pity for her inability to properly update her Facebook relationship status? Was Jake McDorman charming or obnoxious? Do you want the voiceover to go far, far away, or do you want more, more, more? And will you watch again?
Have at it.
I posted my review of ABC's "Selfie" yesterday. Now it's your turn. For those of you watched tonight — or who watched the slightly longer, more annoying cut of the pilot on Hulu a few weeks ago — what did you think? Did you find all the social media jokes cutting edge or played out? Did you instantly despise Eliza, or did you like her? How do you feel about Karen Gillan's American accent, in terms of both realism and comedy? Do you like John Cho? Did the twee ukelele version of "Bad Romance" during the makeunder make you cringe or want to sing along? And will you watch again?
Have at it.
Today, FX is not the worst. It is the best, for having renewed "You're the Worst" — and also "Married."
Happy Tuesday, boys and girls! It's gonna be another double-dip this week for the Firewall & Iceberg Podcast, because there are just too darned many premieres this week to squeeze into a single installment. Most of the ones in today's podcast are, unfortunately, not among the best of this fall's freshman class, though if you enjoy Angry Dan or Incredulous Alan, you will be getting a good amount of both throughout this discussion, before we segue into talking about "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy" premieres.
Back either Thursday or Friday with a mix of new ("Mulaney") and returning ("Homeland") shows, plus belated finale talk about "Masters of Sex" and "Outlander."
As always, send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can subscribe to The Firewall & Iceberg Podcast over at the iTunes Store, where you can also rate us and comment on us. Or you can always follow our RSS Feed, download the MP3 file, subscribe on IHeartRadio or stream it on Dan's blog.
There's also now a complete archive of all the podcasts to date.
With the future of the "24" franchise — and her role as Jack Bauer's latest trusty sidekick — in limbo, Yvonne Strahovski has gone back to the past in more ways than one with her new gig, playing one of the title roles in ABC's "Astronaut Wives" club, written and executive produced by Stephanie Savage, and by "Chuck" co-creator Josh Schwartz.
The hot trend in TV dramas this fall is comic book adaptations, as every broadcast network but CBS will have at least one show based on a Marvel or DC title (with CBS likely following next year with its "Supergirl" pilot). If there's a hot trend in the new sitcoms (of which there aren't a ton), it's with a genre that's often been used to counterprogram comic book movies: the romantic comedy.
