In a television age that has not been kind to the half-hour comedy, Mozart In the Jungle becomes even more of a keeper in its second season than it was in its first...

Imagine for a moment that Michelle Dockery’s Lady Mary on Downton Abbey isn’t an entitled British royal, but an entitled young American... That’s what Stephen Colbert has done by hosting this inspired bit where Dockery, Hugh Bonneville and Allen Leech read a scene from a Season 5 Downton episode in American accents...

“I don’t think Hugh has gotten nearly enough credit for the way he’s played Robert,” says Elizabeth McGovern, who plays Lady Graantham of Downton Abbey. “I mean, Robert can be a bit of an idiot. But Hugh has made him into a character people really care about..."

We’ve all seen the stories, way too many of them really, where a DNA test proves someone could not have committed a crime, years or decades after he or she was wrongfully slapped in jail. Netflix’s Making a Murderer starts off with what appears to be a classic case of Wrong Guy...

We can never have too many engaging TV dramas, so you might want to put Australia’s A Place To Call Home on your holiday wish list....

...Fargo’s TV creator/author Noah Hawley told TV writers Tuesday, a few hours after the acclaimed Season 2 ended, that Season 3 mostly likely won’t start filming until next November, with a projected airdate of spring 2017.  Plenty of time for ice fishing, eh?...
 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 

David Hinckley

David Hinckley first grasped the power of television when, at the age of 8, he bullied his parents into buying a basset hound like Cleo on The People’s Choice. He named her Cleo. Somewhat more recently, he worked for 35 years at The New York Daily News, the last seven covering television.
