Sean Patrick Thomas is a millennial icon; there are basically no straight women my age who didn’t have his photo on their bedroom wall. But he’s also a classically trained working actor who, mid-pandemic, turned in one of the scariest, most memorable performances of the year.  Nearly 20 years to the day after the release […]

Imagine for a second that you’re the one person on earth who survived 2020 without a television. Congratulations, you’ve done the impossible, but I have terrible news for you- you really missed out. There was a lot of great TV in 2020- beautiful, fun, heartbreaking, sometimes life-saving TV. If you only watch 30 minutes of […]

I rewatched the final episode of Trying‘s glorious first season on Apple TV+ before my interview with its extremely endearing writer Andy Wolton. It really is one of the most perfectly pitched, utterly honest pieces of writing I’ve seen on television in a really long time. The whole season is special but that final episode […]

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy nominee Kayla Cromer (who plays Matilda on Freeform’s Everything’s Gonna Be Okay) is the first autistic actor to star as a series regular on television. That’s an incredible fact, almost as incredible as Cromer’s thoughtful, vulnerable, hilarious performance on one of our favourite shows of 2020, creator Josh Thomas’ […]

Mae Martin’s autobiographical-adjacent Netflix series Feel Good was one of the great emotional experiences of our 2020 Year of Television. Playing an emotionally truthful/factually ambiguous version of “Mae” navigating love and addiction as a London stand-up, Martin’s easy charm and astounding vulnerability immediately captured our hearts, earning them a nomination for Outstanding Leading Performance in […]

We may not have been able to celebrate our Critics’ Pick Awards Season to the extent that we’d like this year because of the pandemic but that can’t stop us from hosting our favourite part of the awards, our annual Nominee Interview Series. The list is short this year because we had so few nominees […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2019 MyEntWorld Critics’ Pick Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Five years ago, I interviewed the effusive and self-effacing Sergio Di Zio for the first time. Though he’s known for his screen work (you probably know him from Flashpoint but he’s in everything), he was nominated for […]

About the Favourites Series: One of our favourite things is to listen…

One of my favorite panels from the ATX Television Festival was called “Resistance, Inclusion, and Creating Authentic Muslim Narratives.” Moderated by Vanity Fair’s Sonia Saraiya, the panelists spanned an impressive breadth of the industry. There was new director Nijla Mu’min, whose film Jinn has been a festival favorite for over a year. There was veteran […]

Hulu and Blumhouse have partnered up for a horror series called Into the Dark…

Phil Rosenthal is a happy-go-lucky ball of quirky energy. The Emmy-winning creator of Everybody Loves Raymond was at the ATX Television Festival to talk about his new Netflix show Somebody Feed Phil, an earnest travel & food reality show where self-professed “schmuck” Rosenthal goes places, talks to people, and eats stuff. Tragically, the day I […]

Press Rooms aren’t as big a part of the ATX Television Festival as they are, say, San Diego Comic-Con. I did a fair number of 1:1 interviews with people who make TV, attended screenings of new shows and reunions of old casts and panels discussing everything from the impact of TGIF shows making their Hulu […]

AMC’s new show Lodge 49 is odd and enigmatic and kind of entrancing. It’s hard to explain (it’s about a guy who joins a lodge, but it’s not really just about a guy who joins a lodge) and tough to pitch (I’m really feeling “because I said so” as my answer to your “why should […]

Nico Tortorella is the resident hot guy on TVLand’s winning comedy Younger. He’s cool, he’s charming, his character Josh owns a tattoo parlour called “Inkburg” and spends most of his time worrying that he falls in love too easily and fending off the advances of basically everyone in Brooklyn. Josh is sensitive and kind despite […]

The streaming company has been making larger and larger strides in the TV market, moving from a simple streaming player to manufacturing smart […]

At the ATX Television Festival, we got the chance to talk to lots of great TV-makers. One of our favourite experiences was with the people who make Genius for National Geographic. The anthology show is wrapping up its Picasso season tonight and the team is about to embark on their third go-round, this time exploring […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2017 MyEntWorld Critics’ Pick Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Sense8 is a really fascinating show. It simultaneously pushes boundaries while also feeling long overdue. It boldly addresses a huge array of topics like sexuality, gender, race, politics, human nature, and a whole lot more. Sometimes […]
