The “Twin Peaks” reboot got us thinking about how the original ’90s series spawned the dead-girl TV trope that has haunted us since then.
At the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, Black-D’Elia and Carla Jimenez sat down with SuperFan Los Angeles to discuss what it’s like working on the series, and after heaping praise on star Kaitlin Olson, both turned their conversation to their fine feathered, and furred, friends. Despite Black-D’Elia’s close encounter with a live owl, it was Jimenez who had the truly terrible experience on set.
We’ve seen Kaitlin Olson break boundaries with the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia Gang, but now Fox has given her the opportunity to shine bright in her own series, The Mick. And it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that she’s pushing envelopes (and getting away with it) on network TV.
As the cousin and close pal of Donald Glover’s Earn, Henry so fully inhabits the role of the rapping, usually high Paper Boi, he thoroughly deconstructs the usual pop culture stereotypes of what a hip-hop artist might be like. Hard when he has to be, Alfred — Paper Boi’s real name — is also a sensitive soul and a rigorous thinker. This was made most clear in the Oct. 11 episode “B.A.N.,” Glover’s showcase for Paper Boi as a guest on a Charlie Rose-style talk show, but Henry’s shrewd skills compelled you to watch him in even his smallest scenes or when this Boi seemed to be nodding off.
There’s one thing everyone can usually agree on at the Thanksgiving dinner table — the sides are the best part. In that spirit, Yahoo TV is using the holiday to honor the supporting players that have made watching TV this year a delicious treat.
Between the VMAs and the finale of The Night Of, it would seem unlikely that many people tuned in to see the season (series?) finale of Roadies, but then again, over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed a slight increase in Roadies-awareness in my Twitter feed and elsewhere. There seems to be a revisionist opinion settling in about Cameron Crowe’s Showtime series: Yes, it’s not great, but on its own terms, it’s certainly the mainstream-rock nostalgia-machine + good-acting show to watch if you can get past its ceaseless Eddie Vedder-worship.
Warning: This interview contains storyline and character spoilers for The Night Of. Wes Anderson fans have had Amara Karan on their radar since she played the charming train stewardess in The Darjeeling Limited, and sci-fi fans may remember her from a Season 6 episode of Doctor Who. As Naz’s (Riz Ahmed) new attorney, Chandra, in HBO’s must-obsess-about drama The Night Of, she’s become one of the summer’s best pop culture breakouts.
Warning: This interview contains storyline and character spoilers for The Night Of. Part of the reason you’re so convinced Naz can’t possibly be guilty on The Night Of: those nice parents of his. Could the child of the kind Safar and Salim Khan possibly have committed such a vicious act?
The London-based star portrays Naz Khan, who's accused of a murder he doesn’t seem to be responsible for.
An engrossing murder mystery, courtroom drama, and family saga, HBO's The Night Of, starring John Turturro, is a miniseries to enjoy, think about, and debate.
