I imagine there was some debate over whether to (in the script) finger the real killer and indicate that justice would eventually be served. That felt tacked on, in order to avoid protests from...

If they don't reveal the killer -- and I expect that they won't -- it will underscore the primary theme of the show: America's criminal justice system is not set up to expose the truth, but to...

Amen! "All they have to do now is go faster and come in first, and they'll win!" (Not a real quote, but true to the spirit.)

I've been reflecting on how one Olympic gold medal is not necessarily equal to another.

A soccer player starts playing a week before the Olympics begin, plays for dozens of grueling hours, and...

Tennis geeks (and cycling geeks and rowing geeks and all the rest) are an immeasurably tiny proportion of the audience and they will watch their sports anyway no matter how angry they are. NBC could...

At least this time around they're being a little more up-front about how many events are being covered remotely, using Brazilian video feeds and US commentators located in the US. Seems like much of...

All I know about the Dark Matter comics is what I read on Wikipedia. Apparently it was always intended to be a TV series. (The new novel by Blake Crouch, also titled Dark Matter, is not connected in...

If your enjoyment of something like this is mostly plot-driven, then sure, reading the book will spoil Season 2, unless they complexly change the story, which seems highly unlikely.

For me, I had already read the books. IMO they work in synergy with the series; it's the same story, but not the same narrative.

The first season ended about halfway through the first book,...

BD is perfect as a limited summer series; I hope it has a definite ending. Presumably one that reveals that the ant-controlled world is the one we all are actually living in now.

I have no problem with 15 episodes. But a little bit of a problem with having to wait until the summer of 2018 to see the last one. If I'm even alive by then.

It was never explicitly stated anywhere. Nobody but Ned knew Jon was his sister's son. Ned never told anyone, even Jon. That's why it's such a big deal now; it's been a popuar fan theory, but that's...

That's a bad commander. Maybe an inspirational leader, but what he actually did was simple stupidity.
