'Game of Thrones': Even in peacetime, they're miserable

Slate, Willa Paskin
Apr 5 2014 - 10:15am

NEW YORK -- If society crumbled around you, authority vanished, your neighbors became enemies, your friends mercenary, kindness a weakness, brutality a necessity, what would happen to you? Would you adapt and become a killer or would you be killed? These are the grim choices that currently present themselves to the characters in "Game of...

NEW YORK -- Is there anything remotely funny about General Motors' handling of an ignition-switch defect linked to at least a dozen deaths? John Oliver admits it's tough terrain. "I don't think there were a lot of people saying, 'Oh, great, corporate malfeasance. This is a comic gold mine,'" the British comic and news satirist recalled the...

‘Friends With Better Lives’: It’s better than dead air, but not much

Hank Stuever, The Washington Post
Apr 5 2014 - 10:00am

The sitcom "Friends With Better Lives," which CBS will plop into the space vacated by the departing "How I Met Your Mother," is the very definition of place-holder television, a show that simply and amiably attempts to be halfway entertaining until something better comes along. At first glance, it's spooky that the show employs the now...

RICHMOND, Va. -- Our minds overflow with the sarsaparilla homebrew of the 1800s -- the Victorian vampires, the Lincolnalia, the pop-chart jug bands. The late 19th century is on TV a lot: railroad barons in the West, amoral gold miners in the Klondike, Hatfields vs. McCoys in the hollers, serial killers with handlebar mustaches leaving slit-...

Fox’s ‘Surviving Jack’ offers tepid, unoriginal fare

Hank Stuever, The Washington Post
Mar 28 2014 - 2:47pm

Our sitcom subconscious seems to yearn lately for a return to the era of the whoop-ass dad, a temperamental man of the house whose blunt parenting style includes yelling, some antisocial verbal jabs and a few stern thwacks to the head. It's been long enough now to grow fond of the Al Bundy school of fatherhood.

NEW YORK -- It wasn't hard for Benjamin Stockham to figure out his role as Marcus, the title character of NBC's new sitcom "About a Boy." "It was pretty obvious from the script that he was kind of a nerd," said Ben during a recent chat. "Well, not a nerd. Sorry. Kind of an ODDITY."

'Cosmos' reboot looks to heavens, preaches scientific method

Slate, Willa Paskin
Mar 7 2014 - 6:01pm

NEW YORK -- How big is the cosmos? This is both a central question of "Cosmos," the Seth MacFarlane-produced, Neil deGrasse Tyson-hosted reboot of Carl Sagan's widely watched and beloved 1980 miniseries investigating and elucidating our knowledge about the universe, and a question of Fox's, which is premiering the new version on all 10 of its...

Mysterious kids populate dramas 'Resurrection,' 'Believe'

Hank Stuever, The Washington Post
Mar 7 2014 - 5:57pm

"Resurrection," a solid yet initially disturbing new drama premiering at 8 p.m. Sunday, March 9, on ABC's KTVX Channel 4, is about a small Midwestern town where people who died and were buried years ago (and, most important, were grieved) begin showing up again. Not as rotted-out zombies but just as they were on the day they died.
