7 Reasons 'The Americans' Was So Addictive This Year

huffingtonpost.com — Do not read on unless you've seen "March 8, 1983," the Season 3 finale of "The Americans." It's too bad about that mysterious and fatal car accident Pastor Tim is going to have in Season 4, isn't it? Okay, maybe I'm jumping ahead and engaging in wild speculation, the kind that Gabriel would surely shoot down in an instant.

Was That The Weirdest 'Mad Men' Scene Yet?

huffingtonpost.com — Do not read on unless you've seen "The Forecast," the tenth episode of "Mad Men's" final season. You come to me for analysis of " Mad Men " that is, ideally, cogent, entertaining and thoughtful, so I feel the need to inform you that the show may have broken my brain tonight.

'Orphan Black' Returns With Boy Clones And More Mysteries

huffingtonpost.com — " Orphan Black" hasn't been around long, but there are a few certainties we can count on when it comes to the clone-intensive show starring Tatiana Maslany. We know Maslany will inhabit each clone identity so thoroughly that we'll forget one woman is playing half the cast.

Six Reasons We'll Miss 'Justified'

huffingtonpost.com — " Justified " was always about transcending something, which makes it appropriate that the show's ending transcended my expectations. It zigged when I sort of expected it to zag, and yet the whole thing was very satisfying and even -- lawman Raylan Givens would roll his eyes at this word -- sweet.

'Mad Men' And The Sad Brunettes

huffingtonpost.com — Oh, " Mad Men." Don't ever change. Wait, scratch that. Do change. We're close to the finish line, but "Mad Men" is absolutely allowed to change if it means it swerves away from focusing on new characters that aren't particularly compelling, gives more screen time to characters we do care about and deprives us of predictable greatest-hits collections of ideas and dynamics it has shown us too many times before.

Jane The Virgin Helped Changed TV, But The Struggle Is Far From Over

huffingtonpost.com — Ivonne Coll moved to America four decades ago and has played Americans, French and Italian women and a host of Hispanic roles, though she's rarely gotten to play "a Puerto Rican, which is what I am." One thing she's never done during her Hollywood career: play a maid. That was by choice.

'Mad Men' Returns With Familiar Faces And New Dilemmas

'Wolf Hall' Is A Masterful Study Of Power And Politics

huffingtonpost.com — Early on in " Wolf Hall," Thomas Cromwell (Mark Rylance) confronts someone who deeply wronged him in the past. "Confront" may not be the right word. Few words are exchanged between two reticent men. At one point, Cromwell picks up a hammer and holds it casually, or maybe not so casually.

Jaime Camil From 'Jane The Virgin' Talks Rogelio, Outer Space, Mothers And Romance

huffingtonpost.com — We still have a week to wait until "Jane the Virgin" returns on April 6, so how about filling up a bit of that time with an interview with Jaime Camil, who plays Rogelio de la Vega on the delightful CW program? Rogelio, a telenovela s...

@amandammason think I know the scene you mean? I am thinking the river scene will cause the most, er, rewinding ;)

@MsMelissaMaerz the leads' chemistry, the straight up pandering to the female gaze ;) I don't love it, but I like it well enough :)
