Ep. 50 – 50th Episode Bonus – s4e13

We celebrate our 50th episode by reviewing this past season’s shows, giving our thoughts on some of the shows we covered, what we have learned from reviewing all these pilot episodes and what we are looking forward to in the 2017 TV season. It was an exciting time here at Script vs Screen, we hope you have enjoyed the past 49 episodes covering so many different genres and networks. We covered a lot of different shows from incredible hits like 30 Rock, Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Frasier to never seen shows like Warrior and Coach. We took a look at new shows like Sneaky Pete, which a year later is now Read more

Ep. 49 – Frasier – s4e12

In our last episode of season 4 we take a look at the beloved, highly awarded comedy Frasier. With an incredible cast that included Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, John Mahoney, Jane Leeves and Peri Gilpin, Frasier was on the air for an outstanding 11 seasons. This made Kelsey Grammer’s Dr. Frasier Crane, one of the longest played characters on television on three shows. This show, created by David Angell, Peter Casey and David Lee, is one of television’s greatest spin-off series. The pilot episode is well written, and brilliantly performed. There is such great chemistry between Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce you’d have a hard time not believe they were not Read more

Ep. 48 – Shut Eye – s4e11

Veteran screenwriter Leslie Bohem tackles the seedy underworld of Los Angeles psychics in this Hulu Original series. Shut Eye follows Charlie and Linda Haverford as they attempt to rise up from their underling position in the Romani world in which they inhabit. This drama is an interesting peek behind the curtain into a world often passed by, and until now overlooked. What goes on in these psychic parlors? Who really owns them? What mysteries lay behind the neon signs? In the first episode Charlie experiences a serious head trauma that is causing him to have visions, or keen intuitions – we cannot say for certain. It adds a bit of Read more

Ep. 47 – Chance – s4e10

Based on the novel by Kem Nunn “Chance” follows neuropsychiatrist Dr. Eldon Chance through a noir-ish drama involving an abused patient and her monstrous husband. While the acting is fairly decent in the pilot episode, having an incredible cast in Hugh Laurie as the titular character, Gretchen Mol as the dame in distress, and Ethan Suplee as the engaging but odd side kick D, the material falls a bit flat in the pilot. The script is richer with more characters, both annoying and odd, including a usually silent garage attendant and artist Jean-Baptiste and Chance’s workplace partner Dr. Haig. The screen pares down the unnecessary for the pilot, mainly focusing on Chance, Read more

Ep. 46 – Frequency – s4e9

We returned to the CW in this episode because we felt we did not truly understand certain CW shows. In this episode we looked into the Frequency pilot, a time travel-esque show based on the movie Frequency (2000) starring Dennis Quaid and Jim Caviezel. The premise of the show follows female detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) discovering her father’s HAM radio in 2016 can contact her father 20 years into the past. The pilot does a great job in setting the scene, the special effects and acting are great even with no seriously recognizable big names outside of Mekhi Phifer (8 Mile, Lie to Me, ER, House of Lies.) Two major changes from the movie Read more
