"The Box" wasn't bad. It was just okay. Okay? Okay.
It seems New Girl has made it a priority, and a sort of twisted game, to see how many tired, old, eye-roll-inducing sitcom tropes it can cram into an episode that still manages to be AMAZING.
Not gonna lie—I had to watch this episode twice to truly form an opinion on it. And while I doubt it will end up on my list of awesome Season 3 episodes, after a second viewing, my initial WTF reaction mellowed to a comfortable "meh."
Plus: Justified's getting more Wynn Duffy, the British are invading Hulu, and Taye Diggs is visiting New Girl.
IDK about you but I am "all in" for the impending awesomeness of Season 3! Bust out the monkey-shaped pinatas!
Plus: A former Bunhead has joined Showtime's The Affair, Sons of Anarchy sets a series high, and TLC wins the award for most ridiculous new show title of the day.
Plus: NBC orders a future prison drama, The Following casts an SVU vet, and a Game of Thrones romance is over!
In preparation for the fall season, we've decided to revisit some of the shows and characters that've been absent from the airwaves since May through the filter of one of TV's most fun elements: luuuuuuuurve. (Okay and sex and the potential for it too, but mostly good ol' fashioned luuuuuuuurve.)
Plus: New Girl may welcome back an old friend, Charlie Harper's daughter is gay, and Sean Astin will fight vampires.
Plus: Ray Donovan breaks Showtime records, NBC calls on a higher power, and Jayma Mays settles into CBS.
The network is staggering its biggest launches by starting early and finishing late to steer clear of the Premiere Week fray.
Will Modern Family continue to dominate? Will Girls or Louie piggyback on last year's successes and grab even more wins? And will Arrested Development make a triumphant return to its former Emmy glory?
We can better understand the Emmy nominations and eventual winners by looking at the nominations ballots, which the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences releases publicly. At the very least, they can be good for a laugh.
FX leads the pack with seven nominations; Orphan Black, Louie, Game of Thrones feel the love, too.
The anti-Emmys have rolled out their ballot and there are plenty of dark horses but also some expected snubs.
Is Fox's fall plan with constant debuts the future of network scheduling?
