    “Big Love” Ends: The Good, The Bad and the Plurally Married

    HBO’s daring, inventive Big Love ended with an episode that let us know exactly what happened to polygamist Bill Henrickson and his three wives; no Sopranos black-screen ambiguity here. And in a way that’s too bad. The clarity was satisfying in simple story-telling terms, but the episode wasn’t one ...

    Sister Wives and Brother Husbands

    The strong responses from readers about the season premiere of Sister Wives shows how starkly the issue of polygamy divides people, from some who envy the Browns’ communal family to more skeptical readers who point out how much we don’t see on the reality show. (If you missed it, here’s my review an...

    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 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.

    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: 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...
