    Review: South Park's Season Premiere Makes You Gag

    What’s the delicate way to say this? Those South Park guys have a taste for poo, so if you’ve been put off by their recurring character of Mr. Hankey – the walking, talking turd in a Santa cap – your gag reflex would really have been set off by last night’s season premiere.

    TV Review: One Person’s Verite Was Another’s Cinema

    Typical biopics, even good ones, end by flashing images of the real people who have been turned into fiction on screen; Cinema Verite dares to reverse that ploy. From the start and scattered throughout we glimpse Bill and Pat Loud and their five children as they appeared on An American Family, the j...

    TV Review: "Game of Thrones" Has A Heart of Geek

    “I am a khaleesi of the Dothraki!” If that sentence makes you say “Huh?” or “I don’t care,” I am here to tell you that you can live the rest of your life quite happily without ever watching Game of Thrones, HBO’s superhyped, superexpensive new fantasy miniseries.

    Less Froth, More Nazis: A Darker “Upstairs Downstairs”

    The new Upstairs Downstairs is as visually glittering as you might want. The camera swirls around a crystal chandelier in the opening credits; the stylish young owners of 165 Eaton Place have painted the walls in the entry hall a beautiful peacock blue. And glamor? Wallis Simpson drops by a cocktail...

    Why "The Good Wife" is Smart Where Other Shows Are Stupid

    From the start, The Good Wife has been one of the sharpest series on television, as it reveals heroine Alicia Florrick’s (Julianna Margulies) tangle of personal and political drama – does she forgive the politician husband who publicly humiliated her by going to prostitutes? – with her own legal car...

    Review: "The Kennedys" Is Off-the-Charts Bad, But Not Because of Its History

    Poor Greg Kinnear. Poor Tom Wilkinson. I came away from the ham-fisted miniseries The Kennedys feeling bad for those actors, because they are quite good as JFK and his father, Joe. (You’ll notice I didn’t add “Poor Katie Holmes” as Jackie.) Kinnear and Wilkinson don’t have two worthwhile lines or sc...

    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."
