    How a Series of Unfortunate Events Comes Close to Landing the World in War in 'The Americans'

    From the (relatively) safer perch of 2013, we can look back at the Cold War with the knowledge that the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. never ended up in open combat despite decades of tension.

    Sometimes you have to be a little nerdy to fully understand HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Or at least understand it more deeply than the average viewer. If Season 2 ended with the well-titled episode “Valar Morghulis" meaning, “all men must die,” in Season 3 we begin with the less ominous and more approp...
