    Review: Jeremy Irons and Those Seductive, Scheming, Irresistible Borgias

    Amid all the lust, murder, backstabbing and love in Neil Jordan’s sumptuously shot, elegantly written miniseries The Borgias, the most memorable scene may be the one with the monkey. Rodrigo Borgia, played with sublime smoothness and depth by Jeremy Irons, has recently become Pope, and his son and c...

    Sex, Ambition, Snobbery: Reasons to Love "Mildred Pierce"

    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.

    Watch The "Big Love" Creators Explain The Ending

    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 ...

    Sister Wives and Brother Husbands

    The strong responses from readers about the season premiere of Sister Wives shows how starkly the issue of polygamy divides people, from some who envy the Browns’ communal family to more skeptical readers who point out how much we don’t see on the reality show. (If you missed it, here’s my review an...

    TV Review: Hugh Laurie, Zombie Killer

    I’m devoted to House, but it’s no Singing Detective, even when a special Stunt Episode has Hugh Laurie in top hat and eye liner singing “Get Happy” with a chorus line of garishly made-up docs and nurses. Like most over-produced musical scenes – and it was a fairly short scene – this one took itself ...

    TV Review, "Being Human" : The Ghost, The Werewolf and the Vampire

    It sounds like a bad joke: a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire walk into a bar. As fans of Being Human – both the original British cult hit, shown here on BBC America, and this season’s American version on SyFy - know, these three are actually roommates, banding together to face the peculiar challe...

    TV Review: "The Social Network" Invades "The Good Wife"

    A nerdy young social-network creator sues a movie studio for depicting him as “a creep and a jerk.” And that’s just the start of the Social Network echoes in last night’s sly episode of The Good Wife, which plays like Mark Zuckerberg’s path not taken. This episode did not present some vague, Faceboo...
