The third seasons of the droll, terrific Nurse Jackie, with Edie Falco as a nurse juggling husband, boyfriend and drug addiction, and United States of Tara, with Toni Collette as a woman struggling to keep her multiple personalities in check, begin tonight on Showtime. Come back after 10:30 ET and I'll have the full season-premiere episodes posted here. Both series are as good as ever.

Determined to prove that he’s more than Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe keeps turning up on Broadway in image-shattering roles - that makes sense – in shows that are dated and backward looking. That is the baffling part.

Kate Winslet gives an amazing performance in Todd Haynes' Mildred Pierce as a woman who uses her mind, indulges her sexual desires, yet can't begin to cope with her venal, betraying daughter.

Shameless, with the flawless William H. Macy as a hugely flawed layabout father of six, wraps up its season on Sunday. When it began, it was overshadowed by Showtime's smart Matt LeBlanc comedy Episodes, but If you haven't kept up with Shameless you've missed how strongly this American version of the British series has come into its own. This droll comedy has created a unique identity for each member of the Gallagher family, whose affection is matched only by their capacity for cheating the government and stealing from the rich (or less poor).

Aaron Sorkin hasn't always seemed like a guy ready to make fun of himself; you'd expect the writer of "You can't handle the truth!" to take himself very seriously. But while picking up the Oscar and other awards for The Social Network he seemed looser than ever. Here he does a terrific little self-referential cameo on 30 Rock, playing himself as a writer scrambling for work because the profession is dying.

Todd Haynes’ brilliant miniseries is too smart to thwack you over the head with its themes, but the heroine of Mildred Pierce is a true subversive masquerading as a Depression-era woman in a dowdy brown hat.

That ridiculous poster you see is for one of the all-time laughable bad movies made from good books. Nancy Mitford’s 1951 novel The Blessing is a great romantic comedy of cultural manners about a proper Englishwoman who marries a womanizing Frenchman (kind of redundant to say womanizing Frenchman, which is very much Mitford’s point).

Now that you've watched the series finale of Big Love, take a look at the creators' and actors' grandiose explanations of what they were trying to do. I disagree with almost all of it, and not just because they toss around words like "martyr" and cliches like "the circle of life."

“Big Love” Ends: The Good, The Bad and the Plurally Married

HBO’s daring, inventive Big Love ended with an episode that let us know exactly what happened to polygamist Bill Henrickson and his three wives; no Sopranos black-screen ambiguity here. And in a way that’s too bad. The clarity was satisfying in simple story-telling terms, but the episode wasn’t one of the strongest.
