The security apparatus cranks up in the latest episode of Manhattan as someone in Winter's group is accused of being a Communist, phone calls are monitored, and someone tries to get laid. Spoilers ahead.
EDIT AT THE BOTTOM.
Ryan Murphy tweeted out the first teaser trailer for American Horror Story: Freak Show.
"The road has been paved for a mixed review, no matter what," Mad Men creator Matt Weiner told Esquire, according to the Wall Street Journal. "I do what I've always done on the show and rely on the people around me. The actors, the writers, and my wife all liked it, so that's all I can go on at this point."
ABC has posted the first episode of the Karen Gillan/John Cho sitcom Selfie online. Given the premise ("A young woman self-obsessed with her online persona asks a marketing guru for a real-life makeover in this re-telling of the classic My Fair Lady.") I was prepared to hate it but I didn't.
Do you like Manhattan, the second original scripted show from WGNA (following on the heels of Salem)? I like Manhattan. I actually like it quit a lot. I like it much more than Salem.
Frank Winter is a physicist, a husband, a father, and a fanatic. On Manhattan, his fanatical obsession with producing a working bomb as soon as possible overshadows everything else in his life. Despite the show's efforts (particularly the last episode) I can't bring myself to care about him.
I just started season 1, and I need to ask something: the idea of 16-year-olds looking and acting like they're 30 is a thing with this show, right? There's a strange extra maturity to most of them. It's weird—and super-watchable. I didn't watch this show when it aired b/c the main girls all looked the same, and I…
As I watched Jeff Bridges on The Ellen Degeneres Show, I couldn't help but notice how much his voice and mannerisms reminded me of his brother, Beau. Of course Beau's a little more familiar to me because he's done so much television, but in their younger days, I don't think they were quite so much the same.
I just started watching The 100. That's a darn good show, y'all. It's high-quality CW fare. (I spent last season watching low-quality CW fare. We all make mistakes.) And I just finished the 10 eps of Playing House. EVERYONE NEEDS TO START WATCHING PLAYING HOUSE. It's sharp and funny and it appreciates a…
I started watching Saving Grace on Netflix. I'm still not fully sold on the show (it depends on how the whole angel thing goes), but I definitely like these crimefighting gal pals better than Rizzoli and Isles.
I realize there was some convention recently that the io9 staff was busy covering but a lot happened in the last two episodes of Defiance. Major spoilers ahead.
It might sound counter-intuitive since this season, Libby's racism has burst through her calm, uptight, Wasp demeanor. At first, she seemed nice to, if a little patronizing towards Coral. But her contempt for Coral quickly came through - she started to constantly correct Coral's use of the word "ask" and putting her…
I finished my binge-watch of Sons of Anarchy, and I'm now all caught up, and now I have all the thoughts! I'd love to discuss the medieval politics, the treatment and behavior of women, the Shakespearean Easter eggs that make me giggle like the nerd I am, or even just discussing how messed up in the head Kurt…
Dear fellow Gabaldon fans,
The second episode of the fictionalized account of the Manhattan Project aired Sunday. The situation with one of the physicists working on the bomb reminded me of an episode of Deep Space Nine. Spoilers for Manhattan, DS9 and WW2 ahead.
Discrimination against gays by the Boy Scouts is a big deal because a) it's otherwise one of the best organizations for youth and b) helps define what being a "man" means. This new TV show will tackle the issue head on.
Is anyone watching MoS? Because I need to talk/vent about this show. Example, umm am I supposed to care about Bill or Virginia? I hate them so much. I hope they are stung by jellyfish, repeatedly. Also libby and that nanny? ugh. Lets talk it out y'all.
