David Buchanan first started writing for Gold Derby in 2013, seeking an outlet for his obsession with theatre and the Tony Awards. In 2016, David joined Gold Derby as a Contributing Writer, in part to advocate for a long-overdue second Emmy Award for Christine Baranski. While he reached the pinnacle of his Gold Derby career in 2017 when he placed first in the Tony nominations predictions contest––a feat he seems unlikely to ever match––he has yet to singlehandedly secure Baranski her second Emmy, so the quest continues. In addition to covering theatre and TV for Gold Derby, David is currently a PhD candidate in English.

Recently binged the season over the 4th of July holiday. The “spite store” running theme was fun, but was it enough to fuel an entire season? Not sure. It didn’t feel as strong in stretches to the “Fatwa!” season or the “Seinfeld” reuni

I will only watch if Elizabeth Perkins returns, the true MVP of the series. "Weeds" jumped the shark with Season 3 and never redeemed its good qualities from that point onward.

Finished season 3. Mixed feelings...something didn't work this season, but still this show is so smart, unique, relevant..that I don't understand how it can be so underrated. As many said the show took too many risks for a 10 episodes season. Let's

I'll say this I think what really hurt this show's chance of survival was timing and I hate to say it but Diane English's reluctance to delve at all into the personal lives of the characters. Corky had nothing to do; Miles had nothing to do; Frank

I used to love this show in its early years, it definitely should have gotten some awards attentionadamunc
I was a longtime viewer of The Middle and I didn't remember that Sue's middle name was also Sue, so I'm glad a title change is afoot. Anyhow, this premise sounds workable and I thought Chris Diamontopoulus was a revelation in A Christmas Story Live

I fell out at the Jonah part! Cannot wait!Eden
I think Walsh should be in guest capacity next season. This way, they'll make room for Simons to finally earn an Emmy nomination. On the other hand, I thought the same would happen last year when the team split.

The WWII memorial scene was just propaganda. Not very dramatic or interesting just PSA like. I hope that dmitri Stevie meeting didn't mean anything. He's such a dreary miserable loser. The show is basically moving to 11pm to midnight next season so

And ABC's first renewal for next year is... The Middle! Citing the successful move to the lead-off Tuesday time slot where it has been a consistent performer and helped launch a new night of comedies, ABC renewed the show for a ninth season.

Doubt is a masterpiece. I've been trying to get my local theater to do it for years but I think many think it will turn away crowds. Love August as well

One production if I could go back in time to see would be Assassins with Neil Patrick Harris. I love that show and I think the cast recording of that version is superior to the original. I saw the Company revival DVD just last week and it was great b
