DGA Nominations for the best in TV in 2009

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 12th 2010 1:41PM
mad_men_finale_amcThere's been so much action going on with the TCA and the midseason returns and what-not that we sort of missed the announcement for the DGA Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Television nominations for 2009. It's quite an interesting bunch, as much for what and who's included and who and what were left out.

Since the DGA noms come from the directors themselves, these awards are indicative of what the professionals really think of their peers. Very illuminating, if you ask me. Check it out, category by category, and feel free to comment on my comments.

DGA Announces TV Nominations

by Adam Keleman, posted Jan 8th 2010 4:05PM
GleeFriday morning the Director's Guild of America announced their picks for the best directed cable and network TV shows in 2009.

Among the list there were several surprises, including nominations for many newcomers to the '09 TV schedule, namely 'Modern Family' and 'Glee'. We're also glad to see many prominent critical faves like 'Mad Men' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' well-represented on the list again for stellar seasons.

NBC's quality comedy programming was clearly snubbed, though, taking home nilch for such Awards-show staples as '30 Rock' and 'The Office'; even a greatly improved 'Parks and Recreation' got no love.

After the jump you'll find the list of the TV DGA nominations.

Golden Globes 2010: Best TV Drama Series Odds

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 14th 2009 10:00AM
Don't expect a whole lot of drama in the race for Best Drama Series at the Golden Globes. It would surprise no one if last year's winner, 'Mad Men' (pictured, right) repeats as a nominee and even as the eventual winner. Last year's nominees all have a similarly good shot at being recognized again when the nominations are announced on Dec. 15.

The Front Runners: 'Dexter,' 'House,' 'In Treatment' and 'True Blood,' all nominated last year, have a strong likelihood of returning.

Characters Who Need Therapy From 'In Treatment''s Dr. Paul Weston

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 27th 2009 6:00AM
In TreatmentWe're thrilled that HBO has renewed 'In Treatment' for a third season. In two seasons, it has proven to be one of the most compelling experiments in dramatic television. A lot of that has to do with the stellar -- and Emmy-nominated -- work by Gabriel Byrne, who plays psychotherapist Dr. Paul Weston.

The show was based closely on the Isreali series 'Be Tipul.' That program only lasted for two seasons, which means that season 3 of 'In Treatment' will be its first foray into wholly new territory. To this point, much of the dialogue, relationships and all of the patients were based on their Isreali counterparts, with minor variations. Now, the writers will be taxed with creating everything from scratch.

With that in mind, we decided to help out by scouring through the channels to find 10 television characters who desperately need treatment from Dr. Weston.

HBO Renews 'In Treatment' for Third Season

by Andrew Scott, posted Oct 26th 2009 12:26PM
In Treatment renewedHBO is back in session with 'In Treatment.'

The network has just renewed the Emmy-winning drama for a third season, reports the Hollywood Reporter, with a premiere date set for sometime in 2010.

Gabriel Byrne will return to the show, under the direction of two new showrunners: 'Tell Me You Love Me''s Anya Epstein and actor/writer Dan Futterman, who received an Oscar nomination for penning the 2005 film 'Capote.' Further casting decisions will made in the coming weeks.

HBO booking a third season of In Treatment

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 25th 2009 9:03AM
In TreatmentIt looks like HBO is so in love with Gabriel Byrne's turn as Dr. Paul Weston that they're willing to go into uncharted territory with him. While the Isreali series BeTipul, on which it was based, only went two seasons, HBO has ordered a third round of In Treatment.

This is significant because the series remained incredibly faithful to the original series through both of its first two seasons. For this new third season, the writers will have to create all new patients, stories and drama for our beleaguered psychotherapist. Gabriel Byrne is already attached to continue his role, of course. It wouldn't be a show without him. I hope they can secure Dianne Wiest again as Paul's mentor and therapist, Gina.

TV Squad Ten: My favorite HBO shows

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 29th 2009 11:11AM
True Blood - Anna Paquin and Stephen MoyerHBO has slowly become my favorite network over the past few years. I don't know if it's because the mainstream networks have turned to lots of reality programming or what, but HBO just seems to get better and better. Just about every show on the premium channel is feature film quality (if not better), and I've got some favorites listed below.

I know I'm missing a few biggies, like Rome, Deadwood, Flight of the Conchords, and Extras, but it's only because I either haven't watched these shows or have only watched a few episodes -- not enough to make an informed opinion. I'm sure they'll make my Jane After Dark column at some point in the future. So I hope you'll tell me your favorites in the comments below.

In Treatment writer bringing Worthy new political drama to FOX

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 1st 2009 1:33PM
In TreatmentSome shows are known for amazing acting, and some for stellar writing. In Treatment falls into the latter category, though the acting was top-notch, as well. Still, in essence the show was a one-room nightly play. It was simply dialogue between two to four actors. And It was riveting.

Davey Holmes won a Writers Guild Award for his work on that series. He was nominated for Pushing Daisies, a series with a completely different tone, and yet equally brilliant writing. He's also written for Damages and is involved in the forthcoming Happy Town for ABC.

Based on the strength of his script, Holmes has secured a pilot commitment from FOX for Worthy, a proposed series that would put the network dramatically into politics. The series follows a straight-arrow Arizona politician, named Worthy, who finds himself in trouble after he's in a hit-and-run and winds up blackmailed by the mob.

In Treatment: Oliver, Walter, and Gina: Week 7 (season finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted May 26th 2009 9:29AM
In Treatment
Monday nights must be some Nirvana for In Treatment fans. Three episodes! I can only imagine if one of my favorite shows, say 30 Rock or Mad Men or Lost, were to have three brand new episodes every single week. I guess it might be a little too much for one night if the show was an hour long (even for Mad Men), but three new episodes of a half-hour show is like a perfect-sized mini-marathon every week.

Last night was the season finale(s). What did you think?

Law and Order: CI: In Treatment - open thread

Jeff Goldblum

Whoa, there's a confusing headline. Is it Law and Order: CI or is it In Treatment?! It's Law and Order: CI with an episode titled "In Treatment." Damn you, confusing episode title-makers! I can't wait for a show to have an episode titled "Open Thread." This was the second Jeff Goldblum episode (he's trading off each week with Vincent D'Onofrio - I still want to see both of them investigate a case together). What did everyone think?

In Treatment has taught me that I wouldn't make a very good therapist

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 28th 2009 3:38PM
In Treatment
I've been watching In Treatment since the first season. At first, I was intrigued by the format (five half-hour episodes each week), and then I got into therapist Paul's story and the sagas of his various patients. The show is, if possible, even better this second season but it's also shown me that I absolutely could not be a therapist. His first patient each week this season is Mia, a former patient who alternates between flirting and intentionally antagonizing him.

She's illegally looked at his legal documents, ignored his policies and rules, pushed him around and been so alternately pissy and clingy you'd think she was bipolar. And somehow Paul sits there as calm as can be, and you know she's driving him crazy underneath. It's a tremendous acting performance by Hope Davis, fully embodying this tragic and tortured soul. It's becoming almost difficult to watch, there's so much "crazy" in the air you never know how she'll react to anything Paul says.
