    Witchcraft, Race and Frat Parties: 'American Horror Story' is Back in All Its Campy, Gory Glory

    The work of Ryan Murphy, the mind behind "Nip/Tuck," "Glee" and "American Horror Story," can be outrageous, outsized, cool, crass and aggravatingly uninterested in internal consistency, but it could never be described as restrained.

    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4, Episode 5 'Erlkonig'

    "Boardwalk Empire" either canters or gallops, there's usually no in between trot, but we suppose we should accept it and be happy that things are moving forward at a nice gait (though pacing would be nice).

    It is now work like "Breaking Bad," rather than the white elephant CGI films that play in theaters, that furnishes our touchstones and defining metaphors. And if this really is the '60s and '70s, we have to thinking about how it might end. If the Third Golden Age of Television began because the suit...

    Recap: 'Breaking Bad' Bids A Wobbly Farewell In Finale Season 5, Episode 16 'Felina'

    And so "Breaking Bad" ends roughly where the season five began, with Walt celebrating his 52nd birthday and seemingly having all of his wishes come true.
