True Detective Season 3 Plot Revealed

After a stunningly macabre Season 1 and less-than-stellar Season 2, here’s hoping Season 3 of True Detective brings the grit. HBO officially green-lit the season last week, which stars Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight). Jeremy Saulnier (The Green Room) will direct, alongside True Detective writer, Nic Pizzolatto, who came under fire and then was vindicated for potentially plagiarizing the first …

Starsky & Hutch Returns … to Your TV

Funny just last night I was half asleep in bed, flipping through the channels and trying with pitiless resolve to swat a fly, when Starsky and Hutch, (the one with Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn) appeared on TV. Underrated, I thought, laughing at a particularly funny scene I now can’t recall. This should’ve been bigger. Apparently someone in Hollywood felt …

‘The Munsters’ Reboot From Jill Kargman & Seth Meyers is ON

Herman Munster is the man of my dreams and always has been since for as far back as I can remember. I recall little me, in cotton, strawberry-patterned pyjamas, watching The Munsters before bed, dipping my carob cookie into my goat’s milk, (my family was super healthy) and thinking Herman was just the coolest guy on 1313 Mockingbird Lane. You could imagine …

America Loathing The Bachelorette Finale Proves We All Believe in Love

If there’s any time my friends and I resemble the precision and ritualistic exactitude of a Japanese bullet train, it’s Monday at 8 p.m. When the clock strikes, we unwrap the cheese, uncork the Pinot and affix our eyes to the glossy TV screen for two—sometimes three!—hours of unintentional tragicomedy as The Bachelorette unfurls with wildly contrived abandon and we wine-buzz our …

Robby Hayes is a Bachelor in Paradise

“Hey, can I call you back? I’ve got to use Google Maps and figure out where I’m going.” “Sure,” I said, nodding even though obviously the voice on the other end couldn’t see. As a New York transplant to Southern California, I understood how navigating Los Angeles could easily become an epic Game of Thrones-like conquest of overflowing freeways for …

The Simpsons’ Matt Groening Masterminds New Netflix Series

Described as an “epic fantasy,” Disenchantment, the new animated series by The Simpsons and Futurama creator Matt Groening, is set to hit Netflix in two, 10-episode batches next year. As with Groening’s other cartoon triumphs, this one is aimed at adults and will feature his characteristic off-kilter humor, a mix of optimistic petulance and satire-infused social commentary.

Fuller House Return Cloaked in Shadowy Veil of Mysteries and Secrets

A few months ago, I found myself in the midst of a big media coup when Netflix approved little me to receive press releases from that massive nerve center for all things streaming video. I am not sure if the Senior Vice President of Press Release Approvals approve everyone who submits an application, (alas, an Internet search says they do) …

Mary Tyler Moore: No Ordinary Person

I never personally knew Mary Tyler Moore but from a very early age, always felt like I did. Leaping off the glazed expanse of my television screen, hair perfectly coiffed, smile bright and genuine, she had the kind of vivaciousness that could inspire not only this young girl but also an entire generation of TV-watchers and then another generation after …
