Like thousands of other kids watching PBS in the early 80s, Secret City opened my eyes to art. Now as an adult, I’ve become friends with the man from the TV screen, and I helped him reconnect with another friend he hasn’t seen in almost 30 years.
Happy Endings is finally streaming and I’m so excited!
I’m not a binge watcher so it took a while to finish The Man in the High Castle (Jessica Jones had priority). There hasn’t been a lot said about it here so I’m throwing out my two cents (and some extra change) about the show. Spoilers ahead including just who is the titular Man in the High Castle.
Even before the mid season finale* of Haven last year the appearance of a certain guest star was teased. It was pretty obvious what character was going to be played by the guest star though the show was coy before the reveal at the end of this week’s episode. Spoilers ahead.
I just wanted to share this Facebook post from Clare Bowen.
But I am absolutely in love with this new show, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, right now. So much in love I just had tell someone. And since I don’t use Twitter, or Facebook, and I live the life of a friendless hermit, I decided to turn to the Gawker Gang.
Limitless is yet another Specialist Male/Cop Female show to come out this year, but unlike the others, the thing that makes the male a specialist is happenstance. As audiences flocked to Blindspot and shunned Minority Report, what will the public make of this offering?
Stephen King and TV haven’t always had the best relationship. In fact, the track record of adapting the author’s work to the small screen is, overall, pretty bad. Sure there’s a good miniseries here and there—but for the most part it’s been a dismal line-up. Now a new King story is coming to TV: The Mist.
Last night was the fourth season premiere of HBO’s Project Greenlight—a Matt Damon and Ben Affleck passion project where they give first time filmmakers the chance to make a movie. It also provided a platform for Matt Damon to deliver a masterclass in whitesplaining—a whitesplaining sermon, if you will.
In a previous Mr. Robot recap, I predicted Elliot Alderson will join Don Draper and Walter White as one of the iconic male antiheroes of 21st century TV. After last night’s season one finale, I think Elliot is also on track to becoming the definitive hacker in pop culture history. SPOILERS AHEAD.
The TNT show Proof started out dancing around the issue of whether there is life (or anything) after death with a main character who is a skeptic despite her own near death experience (NDE). So how did the season end with regard to its central issue? Spoilers ahead.
We all like TV shows. We all like some TV shows more than others. Unfortunately liking a particular TV show is hardly a universal sentiment, so every season at least one of your favorite TV shows ends up “on the bubble.” What does that mean and what can you do about it?
Comedy is a very broad genre, and it can be delivered in so many ways - from multi-cam blandfests with saccharine Stepford smilers where the only one laughing is the audio track, to deep-thinking introspective pieces where the humor might be a little too surreal to fully appreciate. Chris Thompson may not have been…
Teen Beach 2 airs tonight at 8:00pm on Disney Channel along with the premiere of the new comedy Best Friends Whenever
I finished watching all twelve episodes of Sense8 on Netflix and my thoughts on it are mixed. The parts I liked I really liked but there was also a lot that didn’t work for me. Spoilers ahead.
The second season finale of The Blacklist was being touted as a “game-changer.” In this case the hype was actually true. Spoilers ahead.
Residue is easy to miss among the flurry of shows released on Netflix in the last few months. It tells the story of the aftermath of a mysterious explosion in an English city that involves some supernatural effects. Mild spoilers ahead (not much beyond what’s in the trailer).
Castle isn’t genre, but Nathan Fillion is, so a lot of us watch the show as some kind of cotton candy, but something has to be said about the Carly Rae Jepsen musical performance in the middle of last night’s episode. The possibility of Castle sans Beckett doesn’t have me too worried, but this kind of product…
