Roger Friedman began his Showbiz411 column in April 2009 after 10 years with Fox News, where he created the Fox411 column. His movie reviews are carried by Rotten Tomatoes, and he is a member of both the movie and TV branches of the Critics Choice Awards. His articles have appeared in dozens of publications over the years including New York Magazine, where he wrote the Intelligencer column in the mid 90s and covered the OJ Simpson trial, and Fox News (when it wasn't so crazy) where he covered Michael Jackson. He is also the writer and co-producer of "Only the Strong Survive," a selection of the Cannes, Sundance, and Telluride Film festivals, directed by DA Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus.
My wife and I have been addicted to Medium. It was wonderfully acted, with particularly impressive performances by the oldest daughter, but really stood out for its writing. The scripts defied expectations and had story lines that were clever, consistent with the characters, and while never predictable always came together in the end.
We will miss this show. We look forward to seeing these actors in other roles and really hope that these very intelligent writers will be given another chance soon.
It should not say “read more of this story” when there is no more to read. Thank you.
