RUNNING WILDE ''Into the Wilde'' Review Episode 2

Steve's plan to take Emmy and Puddle on a family vacation is interrupted by the arrival of Andy, Emmy's fiance, at the Wilde estate in  Into the Wilde . Andy has his own plans for Steve involving a poorly planned kidnapping. I like RUNNING WIDLE, but I fear for it. It feels like Arrested Development, but with less mockumentary style. The basic jist of the show is a string of amusing miscommunications centered around two people in deep self-denial. Numerous shows have used this formula to great effect. So I fear for it, like I did Arrested Development. If it makes it to the end of the first season, I'd be surprised. In this episode, Steve and his buddy, Fa'ad, play a rousing game of  Hide and Seek (and I didn't tell you I was hiding)  while discussing Fa'ad's fall vacation plans. Puddle earns herself an easy $500 by being nosy and winning the game. Later, Emmy becomes angry that Steve is going on a sudden vacation and the two argue themselves in going together.

RUNNING WILDE ''Pilot'' Review

This week Fox premiered its latest show RUNNING WILDE. The premise involves a spoiled wealthy very immature playboy Steve Wilde (Will Arnett) who spends his time attempting to one up his rich spoiled neighbor Fa'ad. The other main character is Steve's childhood love Emmy (Keri Russell), a humanitarian who lives with her daughter, Puddle, and her fiance, Andy (David Cross), in a rainforest in Peru. The similarities between Running Wilde and Arrested Development, a show dear to my heart, goes beyond the fact that it shares two of its actors, Will Arnett and David Cross. Like Arrested Development, Running Wilde is a half hour show narrated by one of the characters. In Arrested Development it was the son, played by Jason Bateman. Here it is Emmy's daughter, Puddle, who narrates. The twist is that in the show itself Puddle doesn't speak at all. The pilot episode seemed a bit fast paced and rushed to both introduce us to the characters and to reunite Steve and Emmy who were techinically continents apart. In fact, quite a lot was accomplished in the half hour show. Steve, feeling bad that he does nothing but spend money, gives himself a humanitarian award and a party where he was going to present the award to himself. Of course, a major goal is to get Emmy to notice him and return from Peru for the  award  party. To Read More  Click Here .

'Running Wilde' Premiere Review: Will Power Can't Save This Comedy

'Running Wilde' (9:30PM ET Tuesday, Fox) may have been the most anticipated comedy of the new season, at least among TV nerds. The show's co-creator, Mitchell Hurwitz, created one of the most beloved comedies of all time, the absurd and wonderful 'Arrested Development.' 'Running Wilde' reunites him with former 'AD' actors Will Arnett and David Cross, so what could possibly go wrong? A lot, it turns out. There are a few structural problems that bedevil 'Running Wilde,' but foremost among them is the miscasting of Keri Russell. Russell plays Emmy Kadubic, an environmental activist who, in events that transpire in the show's pilot, comes to live with (or rather, near) her childhood friend, Steven Wilde (Arnett). Wilde is a rich, petulant man-child who is surrounded by servants in his vast mansion, where he's occasionally visited by another bored playboy, Fa'ad Shaoulian (Peter Serafinowicz). Russell's character is problematic for a few reasons. First, though Russell is competent as a dramatic actress, comedy is not her forte and her brand of earnestness severely undercuts the wry tone the show is going for. Second, she has no discernible chemistry with Arnett, and for the romantic-comedy aspects of the show to work, viewers have to be at least a little invested in whether Steven and Emmy get together.

'Running Wilde' Review: I've Made A Huge Mistake Episode 1

Tonight FOX debuts Running Wilde, one of the most anticipated new comedies of the fall season. Running Wilde is the brainchild of: Will Arnett, Mitch Hurowitz and Jim Vallely, all of Arrested Development fame. A comedy with that pedigree seems like a sure fire hit, right? Unfortunately, Running Wilde leaves a lot to be desired. So what went wrong? As much as it pains me to say this (because I've always liked the guy and keep in mind I have only seen the pilot), Will Arnett may not be a leading man. A little Arnett goes a long way, and so far it has worked out wonderfully for him. He seems to be an in demand guest star for any buzzed about comedy that is looking for some cred. Running Wilde is Arnett's first attempt at leading man status (in a TV show), and so far the results are mixed. In Running Wilde, Arnett is playing a variation on his 30 Rock character Devon Banks, which is a variation on his Arrested Development character Gob, which I can only believe is a variation of Arnett himself. But in previous shows Arnett was not the lead character, and therefore wasn't around enough to wear on the viewer. Do you really want to sit through 22 minutes of Arnett's trademarked gravely whisper? So far Arnett has really only shown us one type of character: the overly confident (but secretly insecure), yet considerably dim, rich snob. Steven Wilde isn't much different.
