The issue you raise is an example of why this show so intrigues me. Poor Claire, a 20th Century woman, suddenly finds herself transported to the 18th, where she has to make her way without disclosing...

Messing last starred in the less than spectacular Smash, which at least was good enough to keep me around for the length of its run. In stark contrast, The Mysteries of Laura promises nothing...

I agree that the loss of powerhouse performers like Bridges, Janney, and Julianne Nicholson leaves a hole. Nevertheless, as you noted, the acting continues to be outstanding.

As for Libby's...

Because I never met a musical I didn't like, I liked Smash more than hated it but it was close. :) As you noted, Borle was good in the show as were several other principals but bad writing doomed it.

Several weeks ago, my TiVo lost its mind and ate my Masters of Sex season pass. As a consequence I missed Episodes 7, 8, 9, and 10. Today I setup a new season pass, watched 7, ,8, and 9 on Showtime...

That's right! I had heard that before but apparently repressed the painful memory. :) Thanks for the reminder. Had not heard that Fuller was working on a plan to introduce Clarice under a...

I agree. Like so many members of The Knick's large ensemble cast, Eve Hewson has chops. Not only is she a little beauty, she is a fine young actress. Clive Owen is a wonder, though. He elevates...

I agree that Bohannan didn't necessarily intend to inflict a mortal wound but after he saw where he had stabbed Elam he realized that the wound would almost certainly be fatal. That's when I think...

I liked this week's episode too. Somehow, the show continues to entertain me while avoiding (albeit narrowly sometimes) jumping the shark. As many of us were predicting earlier, the governor's two...

A parlor game could be invented for Most Underserved Oscar winners. I try not to think to deeply about that sort of thing, though, for this way lies madness. :) Instead I tend to categorize such...

Just watched the season (Series?) finale and immediately after deleted my season pass. Not only does the show get darker and uglier all the time, it's level of preposterousness increases at the same...

I'll be damned, partner, that was a great catch! I love Da Vinci's Demons but didn't realize that Tom Riley played the swashbuckling Robin Hood in the latest Doctor Who. No wonder I loved the...

I liked Coma too. Michael Crichton certainly was not the greatest screenwriter or director who ever came along but he made a number of movies I really liked, among them Westworld (1973) and The...

I hadn't heard that either but agree with you that it was great news. Both Halt and Catch Fire and Manhattan have been exceedingly well done. I just hope that Manhattan gets renewed too.

I suspect that Eleanor will be finished off by the end of the season, too bad but there it is. I would love for the intriguing Franka Potente to stick around as Eleanor for another season, but I...

I continue to really enjoy The Bridge this season. Between the deranged Eleanor and ruthless Fausto, it's impossible to predict where the next killing will come from.
