    TV This Weekend: Golden Globes and More

    Predict the Golden Globe winners? I’d never try to fathom those unfathomable Globes voters. Besides, while I may cheer on some favorites in film and TV (Black Swan, Boardwalk Empire) I don’t own stock in the production companies; their wins won't change my life. For me it’s all about the show, and w...

    Canadian Pastoral: Richard J. Lewis's "Barney's Version"

    Barney Panofsky, the protagonist of Barney’s Version, is, in a word, incorrigible. A derailed-wedding-party scene near the beginning of this adaptation of the late Québécois novelist Mordecai Richler’s last novel, written by Michael Konyves and directed by TV veteran Richard J.
