TV

"Lost"

Sometimes there isn’t an easy grand design. Sometimes things will be left unexplained.

The stars of 'Baby'

The show never settles on tone, flipping often between “Skins”-esque teen drama and adult thriller.

"Dirty John"

‘Dirty John’ does exceptional job work in highlighting the social teachings of passivity targeted at women.

"1983"

Change up a couple details and this true-crime show may as well take place in New York City with Mariska Hargitay leading the investigation.

Looking Back at TV

Hardly does there come a time for us to look back at the shows that built the foundations that those we review today stand on. For once, we wanted to change that pattern, and harken back to the TV shows that made us the buffs and bingers we are today.

Kerri Washington in 'Scandal'

In an age of DVR and streaming platforms, “Scandal” revived appointment television.

'My Brilliant Friend'

The tangle of names and faces is a testament to the hugeness of the world Ferrante has created.

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Victoria Justice in 'Queen America'

“Queen America” is not perfect by any means: Jokes fall flat, exposition can be clunky and the only overweight character is still positioned as the binary opposite of ascended class and beauty.

“Escape at Dannemora”

Stiller’s drama directorial debut is a meticulously researched, planned and executed work.

"Enemies"

As headlines become more shocking by the day, “Enemies” reminds us that not all that much has changed.
