The Little Drummer Girl Episode 2 Reveals the Orchestrations

I love having scenes replayed from new perspectives. The cleverness of the twist delights me with the reveal of hidden layers to what initially appeared to be stock material. So when Charlie’s screen test scene from the premiere plays again but we get to see behind the auditioner’s table and […]

The Little Drummer Girl Series Premiere Sets a Rhythm

Warning: Spoilers Ahead Even though Martin has been a reluctant spy so far, he definitely has a knack for it. The fact that he was able to get such valuable information about the Pershing II nuclear missiles impressed his superiors at the HVA and made them realize just how effective […]

Jonas Nay and EPs Anna and Joerg Winger Preview Sundance TV’s Coming-of-Age Thriller Deutschland83 [Exclusive]

Warning: Spoilers Ahead ’80s nostalgia is huge right now. We all either remember the ’80s or have been inspired in some way by ’80s culture — maybe it’s fashion or toys or music (or something else). I was especially intrigued by this show for two major reasons: 1. I love […]
