    Jaguars, Joan Harris and Other Unattainable Objects on 'Mad Men'

    "Mad Men" has used its perch as a vantage point to look at changes in how we behave, to engage in seismic shifts in marriage, parenting, pop culture and the workplace (while skirting others, like race). But foremost, for me, it's always been a show about gender, using the way we were h...

    Every season of "Mad Men" has an iconic episode. In Season 1, it's "The Wheel." In Season 4, "The Suitcase." In Season 5, I was confident it would be "Mystery Date." And then I saw "The Other Woman."

    Review: 'Girls' Encounter Crack & Boyfriend Troubles At The Best Party Ever In Bushwick

    "It's like 'Waterworld' in there," Hannah notes before she, Marnie and Jessa enter what may possibly be the best party ever in Bushwick. Taking place inside a giant warehouse, it's very much a TV Show Party -- you'd never see anything like this in real life -- the kind of thing that has a band playi...

    The Joy of 'Revenge': Why ABC's Prime Time Soap Needn't Be a Guilty Pleasure

    GAME OF THRONES RECAP 8: THE PRINCE OF WINTERFELL

    One of the recurring discussions about this second season of "Game Of Thrones" concerns how much the television show is changed from the novels. While the merits of the specific changes are debatable, a running theme of both my reviews and those of other critics is that the show is more confident in...
