Once Upon A Time producers pick their 5 favorite fairy tales

8 hours ago

Once Upon A Time’s season seven is a major departure from the show’s first six, as most of the cast has been replaced, including an all-grown-up Henry (played by Andrew J. West) and a brand-new Cinderella (played by Dania Ramirez), as we’ve jumped ahead in time several years. One thing that hasn’t changed is the…

Tom Hanks the writer is no Tom Hanks the actor, but his new book Uncommon Type is pretty good

10 hours ago

It’s possible, but highly improbable, for one person to be so gifted they excel at everything they attempt. That’s the thing about polymaths; they’re exceedingly rare. While Tom Hanks’ debut short story collection Uncommon Type does not earn him a place next to Steve Martin or the late Sam Shepard on the dais of those…

Rogelio shines on a Jane The Virgin that embraces telenovela impulses

Jane The Virgin had a solid season premiere, but it hit a few rough patches as it set up the new status quo for these characters.

A solid Crazy Ex-Girlfriend can't get no satisfaction

23 hours ago

A whole bag of iced gingersnaps will not fill the hole that’s inside you. Neither will shoplifting unitards (or lipstick and Sambuca.) It can’t be filled by filing a lawsuit or majoring in Christmas. Sex, wine, avocados, the misery of others—none of these will do the trick. Revenge will not fill the hole. And if we’re…

Boo 2! A Madea Halloween doesn’t even deserve its own exclamation point

20 October 2017 1:18 PM, PDT

The grim reaper needs to fire his agent. Though the humanoid manifestation of death has drawn acclaim for minor yet memorable roles in such fine films as The Seventh Seal and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, he’s now been reduced to slumming it with a cameo in Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, a sequel so wholly anodyne that it…

Betty Draper as a living Edward Hopper painting

20 October 2017 10:47 AM, PDT

Betty Draper was never the easiest character to like on Mad Men. Lord knows we had our issues with her. January Jones’ performance took a while to crystallize, and the framing of her repression at the hands of Don was difficult to penetrate in the early going. Truly, it was her decision to leave Don at his most…

Kids spending more time than ever staring at phones and tablets, reports your phone or tablet

20 October 2017 8:11 AM, PDT

In an announcement unsurprising to anyone who has, or has seen, children, USA Today reports today on a Common Sense study that shows an alarming increase in device usage among kids. While the amount of time kids spend looking at a screen is about the same—a little over two hours a day—as it was in 2011, now almost…

The President Show brings in an actual therapist to diagnose Anthony Atamanuik's fake Donald Trump

19 October 2017 10:26 PM, PDT

For those out there who think that Saturday Night Live’s take on Donald Trump is ploddingly safe and threadbare (like The A.V. Club TV host John Teti’s mom, to name but one), The President Show’s take on the person currently occupying the White House is a bracingly harsh and insightful alternative. Anthony Atamanuik’s…

Arrow points itself in a new direction

19 October 2017 7:00 PM, PDT

See that headline? The thing about that headline is that it doesn’t include a direction. That’s intentional, and it’s not because a terrible play on words is best left unadorned. That particular phrase is less specific than it might be because this seems like a good direction—and hopefully, it is—but you never know,…

19 October 2017 9:37 AM, PDT

Riverdale is really delivering on its promise for a darker second season, with yet another episode ending in bloodshed at the hands of The Black Hood. But who is the masked assailant, really, and why do they seemingly have it out for Hot Archie? The A.V. Club tackles these questions and more in the latest episode of …

Better Things leans more on the drama half of dramedy

19 October 2017 7:30 AM, PDT

Every week on The A.V. Club Hosted By John Teti, John asks writers to tell him what they like. In this web-only extra, assistant editor Danette Chavez heaps praise on the dramedy Better Things, starring Pamela Adlon in a Louie-esque self-portrayal.

Rose Leslie makes Kit Harington wear embarrassing Halloween costume

19 October 2017 6:14 AM, PDT

As much fun as it might be for you to throw on your finest Ikea rugs and talk about how you won’t be knitting by the fire, Kit Harington has been there, muttered that. The Game Of Thrones actor recently told Heat (via Uproxx) that he’s very much over the long shoots and long hair required for the HBO drama.…

It turns out that talking about sex isn't Modern Family's forte

18 October 2017 8:20 PM, PDT

A common theme in some of these Modern Family reviews, at least in the last few seasons, is how the show has struggled to deal with the kids growing up. As Alex, Haley, Luke, and Manny have aged, the show hasn’t always found compelling ways to deal with what that means to them and the rest of the family. Sure, there…

A noisy You're The Worst features a divorce party, an erotica convention, and an important phone call

18 October 2017 7:35 PM, PDT

“A Bunch Of Hornballs” might be a noisier episode of You’re The Worst than usual—a $6,000 lavish divorce party and a gaudy erotica convention doesn’t add up to “quiet”—but make no mistake, it tracks the muted moment following a major realization when you have nothing else left to do but take the next logical step.…

An uneven Riverdale hits the trope and reset buttons hard

18 October 2017 6:19 PM, PDT

As absurd and over-the-top—“campy” tends to be the buzzword—as Riverdale is, part of what makes that works so well is that it’s absolutely aware of it. If it weren’t, no one in the entire Blossom clan would even exist. Within this awareness is Riverdale’s own set of rules and logic, things this show can do (rooftop…
