The One Episode Of 'The Comeback' You Have To Watch

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: " The Comeback" and " Outlander" have almost nothing in common as television shows. The HBO show is a half-hour comedy, the Starz show is an hourlong drama; one's a modern-day showbiz satire and the other is an epic period piece.

5 Reasons To Binge-Watch 'The 100'

huffingtonpost.com — If you're casting about for a new show to binge on, I'll once again recommend "The 100." It's on the CW, there are a lot of young actors in the cast and it's a survival tale that draws freely from any number of post-apocalyptic and YA tr...

What 'State Of Affairs' Has In Common With 'Gotham'

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: Well, now we know what it would look like if " Homeland" Mad Libs came to life on our television screens. "State of Affairs," which wants desperately to be a mainstream, broadly appealing version of the Showtime program, is just the latest high-profile offering to lay bare the problems that afflict so many broadcast network dramas.

When Is A Good But Challenging Drama Too Dark?

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: Sam Adams wrote a smart piece recently about why he likes " Jane the Virgin," the best new broadcast network program of the fall. In particular, Adams praised the title character for being a nice, grounded, thoughtful person who tries very hard to tell the truth.

Where Did 'Sleepy Hollow' Go Wrong In Season 2?

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: The thrilling end of the first season of " Sleepy Hollow" made me optimistic about Season 2. Several months after that finale aired, I spent a day in the "Sleepy Hollow" writers room and heard about the plans for the mid-season finale of the second season (and of course I won't mention anything about those developments here).

10 Reasons It's Still Worth Watching 'Supernatural' After 200 Episodes

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: Familiarity breeds contempt, so they say. But the truth is, sometimes familiarity breeds affection. Take " Supernatural," which recently began its 10th season and airs its 200th episode Tuesday. There aren't many shows I've watched for 200 episodes, but I've never been able to let go of the Winchester brothers.

The Character-Actor Bounty Has Not Stopped This Season: On 'Worricker' & 'The Game'

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: Thanksgiving is a couple of weeks off, but we should be grateful for the character-actor bounty that has arrived well before the holiday. Last week, HBO gave us the prickly, perceptive " Olive Kitteridge," which was an excellent showcase for Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Richard Jenkins, Jesse Plemons and Zoe Kazan, among others.

Frances McDormand Proves Once Again That She's Amazing In 'Olive Kitteridge'

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: If you're not willing to settle for a likable lead character, you may well be satisfied with a lovable Frances McDormand in "Olive Kitteridge," an HBO miniseries that is every bit as astringent and intelligent as its title character.

Jane Austen Lovers Unite: A Fine Cast Brings 'Death Comes To Pemberley' To Life

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: Here's a great fan-fiction scenario you can have for free: Finn Polmar, from " The Good Wife," Clara Oswald, from " Doctor Who" and Philip Jennings, from " The Americans," are caught up in a murder mystery set in and around a gorgeous English country house.

'The 100' Goes Dark In A Good Way: Season 2 Secrets From The CW Show's Creator

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: "I didn't see that coming." I said that to myself more than once during the first three episodes of " The 100," which returns Wednesday on The CW. The good news is, those shocks weren't gratuitous or unsatisfying, and they weren't merely there to shine a light on whatever wild plot turn had arisen in this brisk tale of post-apocalyptic survival.

@KenScottE @margeincharge maybe she becomes a sommelier? a version of heaven. While Saul becomes St. Beardo (I would go to that church).

@superlau77 exactly, I really related to that moment where the 2 guys talked about her situation & she stood there mute. Been there.

@rclnudson exactly. Made me think a lot about sets where the lead guy is NOT willing to be a decent human. Must truly be hell.

@superlau77 definitely. There are so many levels and layers! A lot going on. Also, thank you!

@Jeanette607 thank you! Yeah, I"ve been thinking about that scene for weeks, since I first saw the preview DVD. Disturbing in lots of ways.
