    Emmy Watch: Episodes Creators Talk No-Holds Barred Skewering of Network TV Biz

    Reviewers love the TV network satire Episodes, which Showtime has renewed for 2012. Amy Dawes interviews the Episodes creative team, writers David Crane (Friends) and Jeffrey Klarik (Mad About You), about their no-holds-barred skewering of TV (trailer is below). Given its scathing (and very funny) critique of the television business, it will be interesting to see if the critically hailed Showtime comedy Episodes is embraced by Television Academy members when it’s time to vote for Emmys. One hurdle will be how well they remember it -- the series debuted in January and ended in March, having been launched with an order of just seven episodes....

    Decades-long Doctor Who fan David Chute eagerly anticipated the Season Six premiere starring Matt Smith and Alex Kingston (trailer below), and made me and a pal watch it with him. I applaud his review, excerpted: Vastly shinier production values aside, this was a Monster of the Week, hide-in-a-tunnel adventure, a 1970s scarf and curls throwback.
