Fall Comedy Roundup

By Zan Romanoff

September 10, 2013 | 9:15 am

I did a quick roundup of some of the fall shows I'm looking forward to a few weeks ago; now, with premiers starting first thing next week Splitsider has a comprehensive look at the comedy slates, including shows making their debuts and those returning for triumphant final seasons. (I guess this means I'll start watching How I Met Your Mother again? The show has gone from clever and quotable to boring, misogynistic hackery in the last few seasons, but I'm loyal enough to want to know how it all ends.)

  • Les Miserables Comes to the Small Screen

    By Zan Romanoff

    August 29, 2013 | 11:04 am

    I've mentioned before how thrilled I am that the Veronica Mars movie is, at long last, actually really happening. But what will creator Rob Thomas--who was also a key player in the classic, canceled too soon Party Down-- get up to once that project is finally complete? Apparently... read on

  • Teen Wolf Recap: Lunar Ellipse

    August 20, 2013 | 9:10 am

    Last night's mid-season finale of Teen Wolf had plot holes you could drive a truck through-- or at least Stiles' much beloved baby blue Jeep, which may or may not have been among the episode's casualties. Entire plotlines were dropped (remind me again, was there supposed to be... read on

  • Teen Wolf Recap; The Overlooked

    Do you know what convinced me to start watching Teen Wolf? It was not Tyler Posey's shirtless torso, or Tyler Hoechlin's shirtless torso, or even the power of their shirtless torsos combined. (It might have been a little bit of their torsos and Hoechlin's face but-- that's only... read on

  • Twisted Recap: Docu-Trauma

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 31, 2013 | 2:48 pm

    I'll give Twisted this one: despite all of the extremely predictable drama around the Danny-Lacey-Jo love triange, they have so far spared us the crushing embarrassment of watching Jo actually confess her affections to Danny, who continues to think of her "like a sister." Instead... read on

  • Teen Wolf Recap: The Girl Who Knew Too Much

    If it's the girls know too much in this episode-- Allison takes her father's careful tracking of the Darach for evidence that he is one, Lydia decides to acknolwedge her power instead of denying it and discovers that she's a banshee, Jennifer, well, Jennifer is the Darach after... read on

  • I Think I Might Be the Only Person in the World Who Doesn’t Really Like Orange is the New Black

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 29, 2013 | 2:22 pm

    All right, I'll admit it: I just don't get Orange is the New Black. I watched three or four episodes the weekend it came out and have made my way through three or four more in the intervening weeks, waiting for it to become addictive, delightful-- even just plain old entertaining.... read on

  • Graceland Recap: Goodbye High

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 26, 2013 | 3:35 pm

    This week's episode of Graceland is the first to abandon its usual procedural format-- a Case of the Week plus or minus some progress on a season-long Big Mystery-- in favor of developing character relationships and moving that one main question to the fore. It makes for a quiet... read on
