Series Star Joanne Froggatt Previews Sundance TV’s Liar

Warning: Spoilers Ahead What if both the main characters in your story are unreliable narrators? Joanne Froggatt‘s Laura Nielson is a bright and dedicated teacher. Ioan Gruffudd‘s Andrew Earlham is a renowned surgeon whose son is a student at Laura’s school. After they go on a date, a series of […]

Top of the Lake: China Girl Preview + TCA Excerpts

Sundance TV’s Top of the Lake was one of my favorite series of 2013. When a second series was announced, we knew it would take a while for it come around because Elisabeth Moss was wrapping Mad Men and then attached to Hulu’s juggernaut The Handmaid’s Tale. Alongside her other […]

Summer 2016 TCAs: The Creator and Cast Talk Rectify’s Final Season

Embed from Getty Images I’ve been a huge Rectify fan since it debuted back in 2013. While it never really took off the ratings, the show has had a rabidly devoted fan base. While I came to the show wondering if Daniel Holden was guilty of the crime he’d spent […]

Cleverman Series Premiere Preview

This is a familiar story, even if the details are new. We take a group of people who are reviled — in this case the “Hairies,” who look different, speak a different language and have incredible physical strength — in a society that doesn’t know what to do with them. […]

Rectify “The Source”

I had to go back and re-watch the series premiere. We know George is lying, but is he lying about everything? And since we can’t really take his word on anything having to do with Hanna Dean or Daniel Holden, I thought I’d go back to the source material because […]

Deutschland83 Preview: “Bold Guard”

Well that escalated quickly. Kramer’s dead, Stepanow’s on the horn to Moscow detailing the West’s plan to strike first after reading the doctored  NATO report and Alex’s “mysterious illness” might turn out to be real, if Tischbier is a carrier. Although Martin seems excited about impending fatherhood and determined to […]

Deutschland83 “Cold Fire”

In the series premiere of Deutschland 83, when Kramer instructed Martin to drug, instead of kill, Renate when she overheard something she shouldn’t have, I thought I knew what kind of show this was. With every passing week we’ve seen Martin put himself in more danger, but even with his […]

Rectify’s Aden Young and Bruce McKinnon Preview Season 3 [Exclusive]

Warning: Spoilers Ahead What I love about this show is the slow, measured pace of things. Ray McKinnon takes his time. He’s invited us into this family where we can see the warts and all of everyone’s situation. At the heart of it we have Daniel Holden, who was convicted […]

Deutschland83 Preview: “Atlantic Lion”

Warning: Spoilers Ahead Cow steak. We love that Martin has no idea which cut of steak to order. We guess they don’t do that sort of thing in East Germany. In “Brave Guy” we see Martin start coming into his own as a spy. He’s not willing to do all […]

Deutschland83 Preview: “Brave Guy”

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 […]
