Review: Showtime’s ‘Shameless’
Tuesday, December 28 by

Seems like a good show, alternately hard to take yet fascinating. It’s about the Gallagher family dealing with poverty and alcoholism, but to make it salaciously entertaining, they have more wild shenanigans than depressing despair.

Review: Showtime’s ‘Episodes’
Tuesday, December 28 by

Showtime sent out the first seven episodes of their new comedy “Episodes,” which is the entire first season. It certainly gets better once you get past the plodding set-up, but never good enough to add to your DVR queue.

Good news for people who like serial killers and ridiculous plots (I kid because I love). Showtime has renewed “Dexter” for its sixth season.

William H. Macy Slurs His V.O. In Showtime’s ‘Shameless’ Trailer
Wednesday, October 20 by

Showtime has dropped the trailer for their new drama "Shameless," and William H. Macy can't help from slurring the voiceover. In the series, Macy plays an alcoholic father to a slew of Chicagoan kids. Emmy Rossum appears to be the one keeping the family afloat and looking adorable in the process.
The Gallagher clan should fit in nicely with the rest of Showtime's dysfunctional families, such as the Botwins on "Weeds" and the Peytons on "Nurse Jackie." Drugs, booze, and sex always play a major part in their series, not to mention serial killing in "Dexter." Does Showtime know how to party or what?!
"Shameless" premieres January 9, 2011 at 10PM EST.

Interview: ‘Look’ Creator Adam Rifkin
Monday, October 11 by

Did you catch the premiere of Showtime’s new original series “Look?” You might have missed it. It was on Sunday night at midnight (Monday morning if you’re being technical, but the point is it's on long after “Dexter.”) It’s definitely late night viewing because “Look” is more revealing than even the boldest episode of “Californication.”

Based on creator Adam Rifkin’s own movie by the same name, “Look” tells ensemble drama stories from the point of view of security cameras, cell phone cameras, flipcams and webcams. Characters tweet and text and we view their messages on screen. The characters include adulterous druggie MILF Stella (Claudia Christian), promiscuous teen Hannah (Sharon Hinnendael) and her virginal friend Molly (Ali Cobrin), stripper obsessed Andy (Jordan Belfi), security guards who watch dressing room surveillance footage and many more connected character.

Mary-Louise Parker Talks Dirty About Upcoming Rough Sex on ‘Weeds’
Monday, October 4 by

Mary-Louise Parker is great at vamping up her sex appeal on “Weeds” in her little boots and sun dresses. If you’re an admirer like I am, you’ll love this season’s eighth episode. When Nancy Botwin (Parker) rolls her Winnebago into town, she hooks up with a local bartender and, because it’s Showtime, you see everything and then some. He spanks her pretty little bottom and she hits back!

First Episode of ‘Dexter’ Season 5
Tuesday, September 28 by

I'm providing this for all you folks who are unfortunate enough to have to steal cable from a person who doesn't subscribe to Showtime. The first episode of the new season of "Dexter" may have moved slower than some prefer, but I guarantee you it's setting up awesome stuff to come. I've seen through episode three. You won't be disappointed. Let me know what you think in the comments section.

‘Dexter’ Poster Doesn’t Skimp On The Awesome
Thursday, September 9 by

The print campaign for "Dexter" has always been eye-grabbing and awesome, and the new poster art for season five does not disappoint either. We already reported that the new season will follow in the footsteps of The Karate Kid 2, Halloween 2, and the Back To The Future sequels by picking up right where the action ended last season. Looks like this poster is doing the same. So much for spoiler warnings. This baby will soon be seen on billboards, bus stops, subway platforms, baseball stadiums, tramp stamps, magazines, banner ads, and the lunchboxes of the criminally insane.

Dexter's world literally turns upside down in this new promo where Michael C. Hall moves into a spacious fully-furnished cement mixer with an ocean view. The new season premieres with Dexter squaring off against Robo-Cop on Sunday, September 26th at 9pm so expect the Showtime hype-machine to go into overdrive.

James Remar Talks Harry Details for ‘Dexter’ Season 5
Friday, June 25 by

The Saturn Awards brought Screen Junkies some great T.V. scoops last night, including additional details on the fifth season of "Dexter." James Remar, who plays Dexter's dead father Harry and constant subconcious reminder of "The Code," stopped on the red carpet to discuss what's in store for the sympathetic serial killer. We've previously reported on plot and casting details for the upcoming season, but how will Harry help Dexter get through these troubled times, and keep him from sliding off the deep end? Or I suppose the DEEP deep end, since he kind of already murders people. GET THE HARRY DETAILS AFTER THE JUMP…

Kevin Spacey May Join Cult for Showtime’s ‘The Crux’
Wednesday, June 16 by

UPDATE: HBO, Starz, and FX are also interested in this project. Everyone wants Kool-Aid!!!Kevin Spacey wants you to drink his Kool-Aid. The actor, who doesn't do a half-bad job of portraying psychos, is in talks with Showtime to star in a series called 'The Crux', in which he would play the leader of a high-profile cult. Rod Lurie, the writer-director of the underrated jailhouse flick The Last Castle, would pen the pilot script and most likely exec-produce the series.Spacey would have to wedge the show into his already full schedule of movie roles and being the artistic director for London's Old Vic Theatre. See, this is why you never take a job at some artsy-fartsy live stageshow joint. It restricts you from doing things people care about. Oh sure, educated people adoooooore the theater, but really, who talks that much in one room? (Vulture)

More ‘Dexter’ Season 5 Details
Monday, May 17 by

I'm not ready to say goodbye to this picture.Entertainment Weekly has new details about the fifth season of Dexter in the latest issue. If you're not caught up with the show, there are SPOILERS AHEAD. Bold and all caps. My ass is covered.It looks like Dexter will be packing up the kids and returning to his old bachelor pad to crash with Deb in the new season. Suburbia never really felt right and dropping deuces where his wife was murdered doesn't really appeal either. New showrunner Chip Johannessen had this to say about the new living situation, “It’s partially funny and partially not. Deb is not exactly the most maternal person. Nobody quite knows what they’re doing, so there’s a certain kind of struggle to cope.” In other words, these kids would be better off left in the woods to fend for themselves.The interesting story detail however pertains to the investigation of Rita's murder. Neither the police nor the FBI believe Trinity was responsible and consider Dexter the prime suspect. If Nancy Grace has taught me anything, it's usually the spouse in these cases. Especially the ones that play with blood for a living.

‘Dexter’ Season Five Killer Details
Friday, March 5 by

The season four finale of Dexter knocked the wind out of us and made me want to punch John Lithgow (something I swore I'd never do). Though it also served to reinvigorate a slumping storyline. So we were more than eager to chat with executive producer Sara Colleton when we caught up with her on the red carpet at PaleyFest 2010. If you're not caught up on the series, stop reading now as there are SPOILERS AHEAD. Here's what she told us we can expect in the new season.Dexter's not really one to wear his heart on his sleeve. What can we expect as he learns how to grieve?He is going to have to deal with a lot of feelings that he's never felt before, so it'll be interesting. He's going to approach it all, we hope, in a way that is unique and feels authentic to the audience. You'll see him go through all of those things and it will be different. I don't want to telegraph exactly what we're going to do because we want to present what anyone would be going through in that situation in a very unique Dexter-like way.SEE WHAT ELSE COLLETON HAD TO SAY, INCLUDING NEWS ABOUT THE SEASON'S BIG BAD, AFTER THE JUMP…

Yes, It’s A Dexter Porn Parody
Monday, October 12 by

We're surprised it took the Adult Entertainment wizards this long to come up with this, but after having headed into its fourth season, Showtime's "Dexter" has been honored with its own porn spoof. Sort of ironic that a show whose marketing campaign has been so reliant on clever puns has had to wait that long for an industry founded on puns (and intercourse) to do a sexy sendup. For those of us not counting back end points, this is way cooler than syndication…   The official press release, courtesy of the very NSFW news publication Porn Valley News (which we can't even link to because it's so dirty), reads:
