Please Like Me


dvr this Josh Thomas’ Please Like Me is what HBO’s Girls would be if it were gay, Australian, and not irritating. Thomas is preternaturally talented and very young (like Lena Dunham), and he has written every episode of Please Like Me’s two seasons. Thomas plays Josh, who in the first episode gets dumped by his […]

Fear the Walking Dead


dvr this AMC, Sunday, Aug. 23, 9 p.m. The first spinoff of AMC’s wildly popular zombie apocalypse soap opera The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead focused on the first few weeks of the zombie epidemic that is in full swing when the original show started. The publicists don’t want us to call it a […]

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp

On Netflix dvr this   Michael Showalter and David Wain’s 2001 cult classic Wet Hot American Summer is funny but is particularly impressive for having cast so many eventually super-famous people: Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks and Ken Marino joined already or at-the-time famous Christopher Meloni, Janeane Garofalo, Zak Orth and Marguerite […]

True Detective


dvr this HBO, Sundays, 9 p.m., repeated multiple times during the week True Detective was a sensation last year. Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey’s portrayals of damaged Louisiana detectives hunting a serial killer were epic. For the second season, creator Nic Pizzolatto has left the South and landed in L.A., with the four main stars […]



dvr this First season streaming on Netflix Netflix’s latest binge-fest is a science fiction mindbender from the Wachowskis called Sense8. Eight different people from all over the world are mysteriously psychically connected by a dying woman (Daryl Hannah) pursued by black-clad villains. The thriller aspect of the story is less interesting than the individual dramas […]


dvr this Starz, Saturday, May 30, 6 p.m. The finale of the first season of Outlander airs May 30. The show is about British World War II nurse Claire Beauchamp (Caitriona Balfe) who is transported two centuries in the past to 18th century Scotland. How this happens is somewhat irrelevant, but the proto-feminist fish out […]



dvr this HBO, repeatedly on multiple times or on demand While Queen Latifah may never come out and say she’s a lesbian, her performance as the great bisexual blues singer Bessie Smith is so raw, honest, sexy and believable I really don’t care. She’s made a great film about a queer icon. Bessie went from […]

Grace and Frankie


dvr this On Netflix When I heard that Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin were going to team up for a comedy about two very different women thrown together when their husbands leave them for each other, I imagined a new Golden Girls, with broad comedy and lots of zingers. I was shocked and immensely surprised […]

Silicon Valley


dvr this HBO, Sundays, 10 p.m. The tech bros of the Bay Area are lovingly satirized in Mike Judge’s fantastic sitcom Silicon Valley. Now in its second season, the show has figured itself out after a shaky beginning, and it is now one of the funniest on TV. Thomas Middlemarch plays Richard, a delightfully awkward […]

Penny Dreadful

dvr this Showtime, Sunday, May 3, 10 p.m. The season premiere of the postmodern horror drama introduces a new big bad: witches, led by mystic Evelyn Poole (Helen McCrory). She becomes the nemesis of our heroine, the disturbed medium Vanessa Ives (Eva Green), who I think is the most exciting character on television right now. […]
