    Recap: 'The Newsroom,' Season 2, Episode 6 'One Step Too Many'

    Recap: 'Breaking Bad,' Season 5, Episode 10 'Buried'

    "I am the danger," Walter White chillingly intoned in season four's "Cornered," but with dynamics having severely shifted since, Heisenberg may not be the most unpredictable wildcard in the show, or that Hank (Dean Norris) now faces.

    Review: Art World Documentary & Love Story 'Cutie And The Boxer'

    Love is complicated, this much we know is true. But love is even more complicated, as Zachary Heinzerling’s brilliant new documentary “Cutie and the Boxer” illustrates, when the regular mechanics of romance (co-dependency, support, a nearly psychic transference of ideas and emotions) are housed with...
