Tag: Inside Amy Schumer (1-4 of 4)

Josh Charles on 'Inside Amy Schumer' gives us unfounded hope for Will Gardner -- VIDEO

Everyone stop panicking, because we’ve found Will Gardner! He isn’t dead after all! He’s simply having a bit of a mid-life crisis, guys, and it’s OK. I have a plan to get him back to his rightful home on The Good Wife.

In a segment titled “The Foodroom” on Inside Amy Schumer, we find Will struggling with his new career choice. As Amy tells him in the clip, he’s damaged goods, and we all know why. Clearly, he was mistaken for dead and then forced to leave Chicago (and Alicia) behind. Plus, he was obviously forced to change his name to J.J.

Now, he’s stuck in an unhappy relationship with Amy Schumer while he works as a manager at a fast food restaurant and tries to relive his glory days. He even walks around giving inspirational speeches like he’s still working a courtroom. It breaks my heart.

Here’s some perspective for you: Old Will had a nice apartment, a comfortable bed — right Alicia? — and spent his days fighting for justice. The new Will has a bassist as a roommate, sleeps on a futon, and spends his days fighting for obesity. But one thing we can hold onto: He still knows how to clear a desk counter!

Top TV episodes of 2013: Which one would you add to EW's list?

As 2013 comes to a close, you’re reading a lot of Top 10 lists. And as if EW’s 10 Best TV shows picks from Doc Jensen and Melissa Maerz weren’t enough fuel for debate, we also have our annual list of the 10 Best TV Episodes. Take a look through that countdown — which includes the obvious (Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife) and not-so-obvious (Inside Amy Schumer and The Mindy Project tie at No. 10) — then tell us the one episode you’d have advocated for that didn’t make it.

My pick: Justified‘s “Decoy,” an hour that became a great Western as Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) and the Marshals tried to get Drew Thompson (Jim Beaver) out of Harlan alive, while Boyd (Walton Goggins) did his best to stop them for Nicky Augustine (Mike O’Malley). Executive producer Graham Yost, who co-wrote the episode, broke down the twists, Tarantino homages, and staircase showdown that wasn’t for us here. It’s the series at its best with unexpected turns, the meaningful use of a three-dimensional bit character (Patton Oswalt’s Constable Bob), and a riveting new chapter in the history of Raylan and Boyd.

Other nominees from EW.com HQ: The series finales of 30 Rock and The Office and the shocking season 3 ender of Homeland. Your turn!
