A The Goldbergs Community
Wednesday 8:00 PM on ABC (Returning September 21, 2016)


KEEP THE CHANGE, YA FILTHY ANIMAL

... Break out the homemade prom dresses, the Judd Nelson fist pump GIFs, the copies of "Holiday Road," and everything else you can find, because The Goldbergs is doing a tribute to John Hughes in Season 2. Creator Adam F. Goldberg says they're writing the homage now and won't even hint at what movie it's from, but he did say it's "going to be very difficult to shoot and very expensive." Start placing your bets now in the comments, but if there's a God, I hope he's listening when I say, please, please, please, please let it be a recreation of this scene from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. [TV Line]


BUSINESS TIME

... The first night of Big Brother's two-night premiere (we ranked the first 8 contestants from worst to least worst) did well in the ratings, bringing in 6.6 million viewers and earning a 2.3 in the demo. That's up from last year's premiere, proving that high-definition really does matter, or we're all just really bored with summer TV. [TV Line]

... Sherri Shepherd is leaving The View. I know this is very hard on everyone and that you're all devastated, but we can get through this together. Oh wait, sorry, I confused this with my weekly Teen Wolf support group. Who cares about Shepherd? Do people still watch The View? With her contract expiring soon, Shepherd and ABC couldn't reach a new deal and she chose to walk instead, to which I say, "Hell yeah, unemployment!" Sherri, now that you have all that free time, you should come to my Teen Wolf support group! We eat muffins and drink bourbon and look at shirtless hunks for hours. [Deadline]

... Rumors are swirling in Hollywoodland that Judd Apatow might be taking his next project to Hulu. But the bigger news is who has been approached to star in the project, currently titled Love. If you guessed Gillian Jacobs then you're right and I'd also like to know what the winning lottery numbers are when you get a chance. According to someone familiar with the script, Love is "a character-based comedy revolving around relationships, romantic and otherwise, with one (very messed-up) couple in particular at the center." [Vulture]


CASTING NEWS

... Elden Henson, best known for his role in the Mighty Duck franchise and who will appear in the final two installments of the Hunger Games, has been cast in Netflix's Daredevil opposite Charlie Cox. He'll play Matt Murdock’s best friend and legal partner, Foggy Nelson. [EW]

... Oded Fehr will reprise his role as fan favorite Mossad agent Eyal on Covert Affairs this season. He'll feature into Annie's storyline for at least one episode. [TV Line]

... Joe Caniano (Boardwalk Empire), Andrew "Dice" Clay (Blue Jasmine), P.J. Byrne (Intelligence), and more have joined the cast of Martin Scorsese's next project at HBO. Set against the backdrop of the 1970s music scene in New York City, the project stars Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, a record executive who's trying to restart his label with a new sound. Caniano plays Leo, Richie's chauffeur and confidant, Clay is Frank “Buck” Rogers, an obnoxious, drugged-out owner of a chain of radio stations, and Byrne plays Scott Leavitt, the head of legal for American Century Records. [Deadline]


REQUIRED READING

... Entertainment Weekly is offering a throwdown like they're Bobby Flay, arguing that Hannibal is better than both True Detective and Fargo. I know where I stand, Tim thinks Hannibal is "okay," but where do you stand? Read the piece and then decide for yourself. [EW]

I'm assuming this means the Goldberg family will hold an amusement park employee hostage this season. CLOSED FOR REPAIRS, HUH?!

Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson? Huh, I honestly can't think of anyone more lowkey to hire. Only thing I remember him from was The Butterfly Effect. That seems to be the motto for planning this series: don't hire anyone too well known. Like Charlie Cox; who on earth is that? But the guy has a nice, under the radar resume. It's a good strategy and further confirms my theory that Marvel is taking this property seriously and will put story and character development first.

I hope they show Uncle Buck and Planes, Trains, and Automobiles clips in the John Hughes tribute.

Somewhere along the way Big Brother actually became cool to watch.

I didn't even realize it but I've been waiting for that show from HBO forever. The music scene in New York City in the 70's?!?!? Yes! yes!! yes!!!please. Another Martin Scorsese period drama this time bringing in Mick Jagger to help?!?!? Yes please. Bobby Cannavale was superb in his run on the other Scorsese show and on 'Nurse Jackie' so I'll follow him here. The Dice Man! I'll take that as well. This one looks good. They've also added the most handsome black man on the planet to this cast - fresh off great turns on 'Copper' and 'Believe' - Ato Essandoh. Also not too shabby, Olivia Wilde is making her return to television on this one. When Jagger and Scorsese are on the phone I bet this would have been easy project to jump on board. IT NEEDS A NAME.

Hannibal, obviously.

True Detective was good but not great television. Fargo on the other hand was great from start to finish. But season 2 of Hannibal was something else, with one of the best season finales I've ever seen.

Hannibal's second season blew both shows out of the water IMO
True Detective was good, but way over hyped and overrated, people are calling it the best show on TV, HA not even close. The finale sucked so bad.
Fargo was brilliant, the premiere was incredible, 'Buridan's Ass' was the best the season could offer, exceptional episode, and the finale was a brilliant end to the season.
Hannibal's finale was better than every episode of both Fargo and True Detective IMO, OUTSTANDING episode, TV at it's best.
A LOT of people would disagree, but what good is it, if we agreed on everything.

Couldn't agree more. I can't wrap my head around the endless acclaim it got. It was fine television but I don't see what people see so gorundbreaking about it in a time when we have Masters of Sex, The Americans, Hannibal, Fargo, hell, The Good Wife on television. Was it the idea of movie stars agreeing to do a miniseries? The revolutionary concept of white guy leads and whiny female characters? The rambling, incoherent, sounds-profound-but-if-you-actually-listen-you-realize-is-complete-garbage dialogue?

I think it was the performances, if anything, fine, both Woody and Matthew were captivating, but i don't see how acting can solidify how good a TV show is. It wasn't as if we haven't seen it all before. And it was very hard for me to understand what they were talking about when they would mumble most of their lines.
The one-shot-take thing was good, but everyone was saying it was one of the best things they have ever seen on TV, to me, it made for an exhilarating scene, but it done nothing for the plot nor was it as good as people claim it to be.
Sorry about the rants, I just didn't think the show was as good as the majority of critics and TV fans claim it to be.
Banshee was much better and Hannibal blew it out of the water.

I love Hannibal and all, but I love Fargo more.

Hehe, Dice-Clay as an obnoxious character. Wow, now that's new ground for him!

It's a difficult one as both True Detective and Fargo are season long self contained story, where Hannibal is an ongoing story - they are so different from one another. It would be better to ask if Fargo is as good as True Detective?


I love all three shows - but because we get to live in Hannibal ' s world just a little bit longer, I'm choosing Hannibal.

Much more competent execs at Marvel. I wonder what X-Men and Spiderman would be like at Marvel. Probably better.

X-Men and Spiderman have collaborated in a video game once, so I think it's a good idea. And due to the success of the Avengers, I don't see why there shouldn't be a movie.

There's something about superhero movies not being successful. Although 1989's Batman is an exception.

Steven DeKnight is the man behind the show and if he can do with it what he did with 'Spartacus' the world will be a better place. Loving all of the casting news I've been seeing. Vincent D'Onofrio was a great get.

Yeah, DeKnight actually has tons of experience in stuff like this. Not only was Spartacus a success he has a lot of credits on Smallville and with Joss Whedon. He was a perfect hire. And I would imagine you would need someone who produced a pretty violent show like Spartacus to do Daredevil.

True Detective had its flaws (the metaphysical dialogue I thought was pretty poor) but in general the show offered the sort of quality you expect from HBO, or at least their dramas. Watched the season and look forward to the next.

Fargo I quit about halfway through. Could not hold a candle to the film.

Hannibal is just an over-the-top-gory network drama spinoff of a worn-out franchise.

True Detective, while not as good as it thought itself, was certainly better than the other two.

Fargo's final episode has a huge let down. Before the time jump it was down right awesome but after that it lost a bit of its momentum. True Detective, and Hannibal to an even larger extent, finished their seasons on a high note. All in all I'd have to go True Detective & Hannibal & Fargo.
