    Children’s Hospital: Rob Corddry, Guest Jon Hamm, Do E.R. As It Should Have Been

    Blake Downs, the clown-faced doctor at the center of Children’s Hospital, has taken “the healing power of laughter” as his mantra – and also uses it as a medical procedure. It seems that tickling can bring a person back from a state of near-death. Feel free to try that at home before heading to the ...

    TV Review: The Scary Financial Drama "Too Big To Fail"

    At one point in the sober and sobering HBO film about the 2008 financial crisis, with Paul Giamatti as stony-faced, mumbling head of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, I had a sudden flash of a David Letterman stunt. For a few weeks his running joke was to say ”Ben Bernanke,” and have several young ...

    Review: “The Good Wife” finale and “The real-life good wife.”

    They didn’t have to spell it out, but they did. WCBS, the local New York station, went from the end of The Good Wife to its lead late news story, which it called, “The real-life good wife,” a Shriver-Schwarzenegger report. The station had teased the report during last night's Good Wife with “Next –...

    Review: Oprah’s Doc Club Begins with Transgender Chaz Bono Film

    Becoming Chaz, which follows Chastity Bono though hormone therapy and the surgical removal of her breasts until she physically and legally becomes a man named Chaz, is a remarkably intimate, unsentimental view of that transition.

    TV Review: What "Bhutto" Reveals About Pakistan Today

    Bhutto, a documentary about the life and assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the daughter of privilege and violence twice elected Pakistan’s prime minister and twice forced out of office on corruption charges, is in many ways frustratingly out of touch with today’s news.

    Keeping Up With The Borgias

    “The wolves are bearing down on the papal states.” There are few people other than Jeremy Irons who could make that line sound so deliciously sinister yet plausible as Rodrigo Borgia, aka Pope Alexander VI, explains the family’s political danger to his middle son, the hot-headed soldier Juan. If you...

    Review: South Park's Season Premiere Makes You Gag

    What’s the delicate way to say this? Those South Park guys have a taste for poo, so if you’ve been put off by their recurring character of Mr. Hankey – the walking, talking turd in a Santa cap – your gag reflex would really have been set off by last night’s season premiere.

    TV Review: One Person’s Verite Was Another’s Cinema

    Typical biopics, even good ones, end by flashing images of the real people who have been turned into fiction on screen; Cinema Verite dares to reverse that ploy. From the start and scattered throughout we glimpse Bill and Pat Loud and their five children as they appeared on An American Family, the j...

    TV Review: "Game of Thrones" Has A Heart of Geek

    “I am a khaleesi of the Dothraki!” If that sentence makes you say “Huh?” or “I don’t care,” I am here to tell you that you can live the rest of your life quite happily without ever watching Game of Thrones, HBO’s superhyped, superexpensive new fantasy miniseries.
