The Killing
In the age of streaming services saving cable shows, "The Killing" has had nine lives. Canceled by AMC after the second season, revived for season three, only to be canceled again, Netflix swooped in and brought back the show for one final run around the block.

Community
While "Community" fans have been ringing the six-seasons-and-a-movie bell for years, it never really seemed like something that would actually happen. While the comedy built up a small but vocal following, it never looked like it would be enough for anyone to fund a movie, particularly after NBC canceled the show after five seasons this past spring. But yesterday a miracle arrived at literally the last minute. With the cast's contracts set to expire after June 30th, Sony Pictures Television struck a deal with Yahoo for a thirteen-episode sixth season, and yes, thoughts are already turning to a movie.

Today was do or die for "Community."

True Detective
There are a lot of questions right now about the second season of "True Detective," but very few answers. The show's creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto has been very open with sharing his progress, noting about a month ago that, “Right now, we’re working with three leads." But could that have changed? The first script has reportedly come in as casting gears up, and it looks like those using the #truedetectiveseason2 hashtag will have to change their approach.

The Leftovers
“There might be a lot of noise around the show, and people might love the pilot, but it might completely and totally sputter and burn out,” Damon Lindeolf told New York Times Magazine about “The Leftovers.” “We have not written a script or produced an episode yet where I go: ‘Booyah! That’s what I’m talking about!’ They’ve all been a gargantuan struggle.” And indeed, the first episode of HBO’s latest hopeful, won’t make anyone exclaim in excitement. Running 75 minutes long, much of the pilot is mere placesetting, establishing the scope and world the show will take place in, and the characters that will be our conduit into something that, at least from the outset, will be drawing comparisons to “Lost.”

One of our 20 Best TV Shows Of The 2013/2014 Season, Showtime's "Masters Of Sex," is certainly one of the most intriguing dramas going on television right now. While the premise could easily have been pushed in a tawdry direction, the first season turned out to be something far richer, with Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan leading an array of complex characters, with varying relationships and attitudes to sex. And it says something about how much consideration is given to the supporting characters that Allison Janney got one of the most moving and heartbreaking arcs of the entire first season. And so, needless to say, we're stoked for season two.

Although it’s well known that Steven Spielberg worked in TV before taking on the big screen, very few people have actually seen any of the work he did before TV movie “Duel.” Thankfully, a kind soul has posted the last TV episode Spielberg directed before breaking out of the small screen ghetto with the 1971 automotive thriller.
