TV critic at The New York Times. Also, the occasional film. Theater too.

‘Private Violence,’ an HBO Documentary on Domestic Abuse — A lot of people are talking about domestic violence lately because of certain high-profile cases, and some may even think they know what it looks like because they've watched a video of a National Football League player punching his fiancée.

A Photographer in a Danger Zone — The recent beheadings of Western journalists in the Middle East provide stark real-life context for "1,000 Times Good Night," a fictional story about a photojournalist that opens on Friday in limited release, including at the Quad Cinema (34 West 13th Street, Greenwich Village;

‘It Has to Be You,’ a Catherine Butterfield Comedy — Catherine Butterfield's "It Has to Be You," as staged by the Abingdon Theater Company, is neither the pithiest nor the best acted play around, but at least it makes an effort to defy your expectations. It's an airy domestic comedy that seems at first as if it is going to work an aging-parent plot that has become all too familiar.

PBS’s ‘How We Got to Now,’ With Steven Johnson — Everyone who loves history encountered, somewhere along the line, a teacher who connected the dots, who imparted the revelation that history isn't memorizing dates and names but seeing how one thing influenced another until we arrived at today. The author Steven Johnson fills that role engagingly in "How We Got to Now," a six-part series that begins on Wednesday night on PBS.

'Sleepy Hollow' Recap: Following the Pied Piper To... — Season 2, Episode 3, "Go Where I Send Thee" The opening scene of Monday night's "Sleepy Hollow " episode was clearly a result of one of these two writers'-room bets, or perhaps both: - "Ten bucks to the first person who can work 'jinba ittai' into the show."

‘Sleepy Hollow’ - ArtsBeat Blog - — The opening scene of Monday night's "Sleepy Hollow " episode was clearly a result of one of these two writers'-room bets, or perhaps both: - "Ten bucks to the first person who can work 'jinba ittai' into the show."

‘Starship Icarus,’ Science Fiction Satire on Cracked .com — The mission of the starship at the center of the latest web series is supposedly "to seek out strange new life and adventure," but its real mission is to right a half-century's worth of wrongs.

Playing Favorites With ’70s Progeny — The Cinema Arts Center on Long Island isn't saying which episodes Norman Lear has chosen for his "three of my favorites" appearance there on Wednesday, but the fun is in the anticipation.

‘Ghost Stalkers’ Joins October’s Spooky Lineup — I wasn't a big believer in ghosts when I walked into a gathering at the Bowery Hotel this week, but I had high hopes that I would be by the time I left. The hotel was the site of a promotional event for the latest Destination America apparition-chasing series, "Ghost Stalkers," which begins Oct.

A horror tale with roots in Plano, ‘The Houses October Built’ takes awhile to get scary (C-) — Fifteen years after The Blair Witch Project, can the found-footage gimmick still result in a scary movie? The Houses October Built, from a group of Plano filmmakers, dares to ask that question. Sure, if you're relatively easily scared or are in a theater full of people who are, the film might be good for a few screams. But only if you're the patient sort.
