"Frankie Shaw's ”SMILF” depicts women's vulnerability like no other tv-series, and that is why its case extra sad"
"Good art, reckless artist."
"the Story seems to repeat itself since the ”SMILF”-the creator Frankie Shaw pointed out that rövig employers."
"It was last christmas that The Hollywood reporter revealed the charges against Frankie Shaw, who created, directed and plays the lead role in the acclaimed comedy series ”SMILF” (nominated for two Golden Globes last year). Where does she play the single Bridgette who's trying to take care of his son, deal with their mentally unstable mother (played by Rosie O'donnell), and have some kind of private (sex)life at the same time as she needs to support herself. The first season had a clear class perspective and was raw, straight and funny."
"the Tv channel Showtime, which is owned by Disney, wrote a two-year contract with Shaw and has big plans for his star, among other things, an on-paper exciting miniseries based on Sylvia Plath's ”glass globe”."
"But after the filming of the second season of ”SMILF” (HBO Nordic) started worrying data leaking out. Several employees have called Disney's anonymous police hotline with the various allegations that Shaw was reported to share up the writer of the series based on their ethnic origin. The actor Samara Weaving (who plays the father of the child Rafis gf) should also have left the series because of how the two sex scenes was handled. At the first opportunity tried to Shaw push her to the nudity by itself naked in his caravan seclusion (which the star's lawyers, of course, denied) and at the other, she sat on the monitors so more people could see the Weaving and the opponent play into their sex scene, even though the recording would be ”closed”."
"in russia to Rosie O'donnell have contacted Showtimes bosses to raise the alarm about chaos, bad mood and complain about the treatment of the Weaving."
"at the same time several employees have come to Shaw's defense, so the words are, as usual, against the word of god. However, it is clear that it must involve an extreme pressure to be the show's creator and star, and that some employees felt run over."
"In the shadow of all the controversy had season two premiere a couple of weeks ago. To the felt right off, not just because of that you now see everything with skepticism-colored glasses. I will gladly continue to recommend everyone to see the brilliant first season. But a success excites up sequel, which unlike the debut where the stuff accumulated over a lifetime must be boiled together quickly."
the "New ”SMILF” by offering more of the same recipe, but significantly thinner and sadder. In order to compensate for the lack of ideas hammering Shaw with the ”critical events” in every section, accompanied by ”meaningful” music, the kind of scenes that many comics unfortunately like to sprinkle pomegranate with (everything doesn't need to be Journey-songs at the end of ”the Sopranos”)."
"it feels Bridgettes recurring sexfantasi if a man in the Harvey Weinstein-the mask more as a strange gimmick than the dark wink to the sexual abuse her father subjected her to, as it probably is supposed to."
"”SMILF” depicts women, mental and financial vulnerability in a way that no other series is doing right now. Therefore, feel series case extra sad."
"... true crime. ”Conversations with a killer: The Ted Bundy tapes” (Netflix) is not for the weary at the conclusion depictions of the serial killer, but interesting both as a psychological portrait (which is delusions of grandeur!) and time (how complicated policing was without the internet and databases)."
"...sektdrama. Thrillerserien ”Waco” had its premiere at the doldis-channel Paramount network yesterday. Taylor Kitsch play come true David Koresh and Michael Shannon, the FBI agent Gary Noesner in the dramatic story of a christian sect besieged by the FBI at a farm in Texas in 51 days in 1993, and which ended disastrously. At the same time released a series of kortdokumentärer, ”the Revelations of Waco”, where the survivor is being interviewed."
"... the film. The team behind the pitch-dark mediesatiren (?) ”Nightcrawler” (2014) is back with twisted horror film the ”Velvet buzzsaw” which premieres today on Netflix. Director and screenwriter Dan Gilroy is working once again together with Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo in a fierce depiction of the art world."
"... Saturday. It has become a tradition that the competing channels, folds flat when Contestants that-the circus pulls in the time. The hottest option I could find in the tableau was bridezilla-the soap ”Say yes to the dress” on TLC."
"... poesireality. I just become more and more fond of the ”Completely lyrical” (SVT), despite some ambivalence in the beginning. The section with Ola Salo and Annika Norlin on Karin Boye, Hjalmar Gullberg and their respective suicide was incredibly nice."
