Masters Of Sex
If you're like me, you're probably way behind on way too many shows already. I was a big fan of the first season of "Masters Of Sex," a terrifically entertaining drama that's smarter than the title suggests, and genuinely moving at times too, led by the pretty great pair of Lizzy Caplan and Michael Sheen (not to mention the show has earned three Emmy nominations, a nice surprise). But summer is here, I'm way too busy with a million other things, and last night I just couldn't catch up with the start of season two. But thankfully Showtime is making it easier for me (and everyone else) to get caught up.

Doctor Who
I haven't watched "Doctor Who" since probably sometime in the '80s, but somewhat remarkably, the sci-fi series has endured and become something a massive favorite among TV audiences. And when it was announced last year that Matt Smith was leaving the role after playing it for three years, it started a wave of speculation and talk about who would be his replacement (we had our own choices). Respected actor and longtime "Doctor Who" fan Peter Capaldi landed the coveted gig, and now the first full trailer has arrived showing off the fresh face of the series.

Community
"Community" is alive for at least one more season, thanks to a last minute save by Yahoo, who picked up the show just as contracts for everyone involved were about to run out. And apparently those movie talks are already sort of happening. But one player who has been curiously silent about all of this is NBC, who basically decided that the cult show wasn't worth keeping around, and canceled it this past spring. Well, this weekend, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt told the press assembled for the Television Critics Association why the network ultimately axed "Community."

Vince Gilligan Says 'Better Call Saul' Is A "Period Piece," Will Be Set In 2002 Plus New Pics From The Series

Better Call Saul
Previously scheduled to launch this fall, AMC has been feeling so good about their "Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better Call Saul," that they upped the order to twenty-three episodes, across two seasons. The bad news is that this means the show won't be hitting screens until early 2015, but the extra time means that creator/writer Vince Gilligan and his team have more opportunity to really flesh out the world of the show. And while details have tended to lean more heavily toward speculation than concrete fact, we now know the setting of "Better Call Saul."

Seinfeld
Earlier this year, "Seinfeld" celebrated its 25th anniversary (watch a one-hour documentary on the show here), bringing forth lots of reminisces about the groundbreaking sitcom and ever-quotable half-hour that still plays routinely in syndication. And while the show was a ratings titan, critically adored and loved by audiences, as any fans know, it didn't come out fully formed. The first and second seasons especially are a bit wobby, with Jerry Seinfeld and company still figuring out the tone of the show and what they could get away with. And an episode about guns was something that wouldn't do.

True Detective
While the decision to put the show in the Drama category instead of Miniseries for Emmy consideration rankled some, it paid off for HBO, with "True Detective" earning twelve nominations this morning. So now, all eyes are on the second season, and particularly on Nic Pizzolatto, who once again is writing the whole damn thing himself (impressive). And today he reveals that the next season is getting bigger, while dialing back a bit on some of the plot details he previously hinted at.

Game Of Thrones, Season 4 finale, The Children
If there was any doubt that "Game Of Thrones" is the biggest thing on television right now (and there wasn't), this morning, HBO's fantasy drama walked away with 19 Emmy Award nominations, beating a very competitive pack. It's the most watched show in HBO's history, and each season sees the series expanding in scope and scale. And that means more money being spent on visual effects and all the details that bring the world of Westeros and beyond to life. And today, with a bit of perfect timing, comes a behind-the-scenes look at how it all comes together.

Pacific Rim. Guillermo del Toro
There was a moment there when Guillermo del Toro couldn't seem to get anything made. A few years back at MGM, he was trying to get "The Hobbit" moving, eventually bailing on the project, leaving it for Peter Jackson to take over and turn into a trilogy. And then there was "At The Mountains Of Madness" which Universal scuttled over its R-rating, leaving del Toro to recently announce he'd compromise and go PG-13. But at the moment, he's on a tear. His TV series "The Strain" arrives this summer, "Crimson Peak" will drop in 2015 and "Pacific Rim 2" is slated for 2017 (with the franchise also spawning an animated show). And del Toro is eager to keep up the pace.

Today at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival we got to sit down with the wonderfully forthcoming William Friedkin, recipient of an honorary award here. He was as full of anecdotes and tidbits as ever, and we'll have the full interview for you soon, but one item he shared with us, is that his involvement with "True Detective" Season 2 might be a little more than the pie-in-the-sky dream casting that we did back in March.
