“‘The Good Wife’ is one of the very high quality television shows,” Noble told The Huffington Post via phone. “It’s beautifully written and beautifully acted and you can see that by the fact that there are so many guest stars that want to be on it. You’ve got the Nathan Lanes and Stockard Channings — I mean really top class people just saying, ‘Yes, absolutely. I would love to be on that show,’ which is a testament to the writing and the company. It’s fantastic.”
Joel Wyman looked back on his time with “Fringe” and how he made this season truly about the characters.
As we reach the end, what are you hoping that fans will take away from the show — its legacy, if you will? For me, it’s that people would leave thinking, “Well done.” Like, “You tried — those guys really tried,” because we did, we tried and that’s all you can ask for. I think that I would like for people to take away from it that they made the show what it is and that they can feel proprietary over it; they owned a little bit of the building. I think this was the first time that social media has had such a big play in keeping a show around, and our fans are unified. So, I want people to kind of take away and say that “this was a show that was aspiring to be something that you don’t get all the time; it was trying to say something that you don’t necessarily see all the time; I will always remember it.” It really is and has been a show about heart. So many people with heart have given their heart to the program. I have to believe in some way that because of that, that it connected with people. It was authentic. Like I said, we tried.
It’s Fox’s 25th birthday! To celebrate, we asked J.J. Abrams, Howard Gordon, Jane Espenson and more to recall their first Fox memories.
The first show I remember loving on Fox was “The Tracey Ullman Show.” I loved the ensemble and those funny little interstitial cartoons that eventually became the studio’s annuity [“The Simpsons”]. I remember visiting the set of the last episode’s taping, where I got to meet Jim Brooks, who was always an idol of mine. “The Ben Stiller Show” was another favorite of the same era. THAT was brilliant TV. Essentially, any Fox series with a comedian’s name, followed by the word “Show” was good by me.
We’ve had tribute lists and graphics, but we wanted to go out with a bang: a mash-up! What better way to salute some of the most iconic and powerful woman in television history than with a video of them in action?
Below you’ll find one awesome video — if we do say so ourselves — of fierce females in action. There’s plenty of canceled Joss Whedon goodness and soapy slaps to satisfy everybody.
