THE NEWSROOM RECAP 3: THE 112TH CONGRESS

As much as I believe Aaron Sorkin is, to some extent, correct about the brokenness of our news system, as I’ve watched "The Newsroom," I’m finding myself increasingly sympathetic with the people he’s angry at, the ones who knuckle under to commercial pressure and the terms of their contracts as Will McAvoy and the News Night team rise above them.

GREY MATTERS: MARINA ABRAMOVIC: THE ARTIST IS PRESENT

There is a hunger out there that cannot be fed by smirks, poses, and irony. In art, in film, hell, in anything.

LONGMIRE RECAP 4: DOG SOLDIER

There’s an important development in this week’s "Longmire," though it’s not immediately apparent. For the first time, Walt Longmire hits the barriers of what the law can do, and he is willing to work outside the law for justice.

FALLING SKIES RECAP 3: YOUNG BLOODS

This week's Falling Skies gave us some very earned emotional release. Like almost every episode, the action sequences were kick-ass, but the heart of the episode this week was in its emotional moments. While some of the set-up leading into the key dramatic sequences was schmaltzy, and some dialogue was schmaltzy, I do feel that, if you've been following the series, then the emotion will feel earned and you will have come away feeling the dignity and pathos of these characters.

TRUE BLOOD RECAP 4: WE'LL MEET AGAIN

Alan Ball’s a believer. Now on his last season as the major domo of "True Blood," he continues to see no reason at all why Big Themes and literary stuff can’t coexist with camp, bodice ripper romance, Hammer gore camp and a Ken-Russell-esque free-for-all approach to fantastic filmmaking.
