    TV Review: Hugh Laurie, Zombie Killer

    I’m devoted to House, but it’s no Singing Detective, even when a special Stunt Episode has Hugh Laurie in top hat and eye liner singing “Get Happy” with a chorus line of garishly made-up docs and nurses. Like most over-produced musical scenes – and it was a fairly short scene – this one took itself ...

    TV: Does "Breakout Kings" Live Up To Its Hype?

    A&E’s massively hyped new crime series, Breakout Kings, is the street version of USA’s more urbane, better written White Collar.

    TV Review, "Being Human" : The Ghost, The Werewolf and the Vampire

    It sounds like a bad joke: a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire walk into a bar. As fans of Being Human – both the original British cult hit, shown here on BBC America, and this season’s American version on SyFy - know, these three are actually roommates, banding together to face the peculiar challe...

    TV Review: "The Social Network" Invades "The Good Wife"

    A nerdy young social-network creator sues a movie studio for depicting him as “a creep and a jerk.” And that’s just the start of the Social Network echoes in last night’s sly episode of The Good Wife, which plays like Mark Zuckerberg’s path not taken. This episode did not present some vague, Faceboo...

    TV Review: “Our America With Lisa Ling,” Newest on OWN

    Our America with Lisa Ling (premiering tonight at 10 ET) has a lot that’s promising, and even more that reveals why Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network is struggling with its ratings, why it will be a challenge to move beyond devoted Oprah-istas.

    TV Review. "Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes," Best on OWN

    A month and half after its premiere, one thing is clear about Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network: it’s biggest ratings success, the show people are actually talking about and loving, is Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes, which follows the star and her staff as they put together the final season of The Opr...

    TV Review: Samuel L. Jackson, Tommy Lee Jones Film Cormac McCarthy

    Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson are confined to a single room in The Sunset Limited, but this film version of Cormac McCarthy’s play distills the same questions that explode in action in his best-known novels and the movies made from them. Just as No Country for Old Men can be seen as a parab...

    TV Review. Bad Title, Funny Show: Matthew Perry's Mr. Sunshine

    Strange as this sounds, Matthew Perry’s horribly-titled new ABC series, Mr. Sunshine, is pretty funny, his thoroughly unsunny character like a comic version of House. I actually laughed out loud twice during the pilot, which is twice more than with most sitcoms.

    TV Review: Jarecki's "Reagan" Rises Above the Centennial Chatter

    Actors are lying all the time, projecting a made-up persona, yet you have to be able to look in their eyes and see something true. That paradoxical job description goes a long way toward explaining the actor-turned-politician phenomenon, and no actor was ever more politically successful than Ronald ...

    TV Review: Eye-Opening HBO Doc About “An Afghan Fallen Star”

    Afghan Star, Havana Marking’s illuminating 2009 doc about the Afghan version of American Idol, leaves you wondering what happening to its most compelling character: not the young man who won the competition, but Setara, who responded to being voted off by doing more than singing in her modestly veil...
