American Horror Story: Freak Show

Jessica Lange in American Horror Story

dvr this FX, Wednesdays, 10 p.m. Ryan Murphy’s ridiculous anthology series is back, this time with his stars working at a side show in 1950s rural Florida.

How to Get Away with Murder

dvr this ABC, Thursdays, 10 p.m. Shonda Rhimes’ new show is more Scandal than Gray’s Anatomy, and that’s perfect fine with me. Led by two-time Oscar nominee Viola Davis as a brilliant, cynical and sexy law professor, the show revolves around her cases and her students who help her win them. Everyone is morally and [...]

The Blacklist

James Spader in The Blacklist

The Blacklist was one of network television’s few breakout hits last year, and after I caught up on it this summer, I realized why. It’s James Spader, playing Raymond “Red” Reddington, a murderous criminal mastermind who decides to help the FBI catch the world’s worst criminals. When he is not spitting out campy insults at [...]

Gotham

It’s focused on young Detective Jim Gordon, the future police commissioner and Batman’s closest compadre. Gordon is played by fierce [...]

Keep the Lights On

On Netflix Ira Sachs’s last movie was a critical darling but barely released. It’s a shame because it’s a beautifully shot, extremely sexy, but difficult love story.

True Blood

Legends

dvr this TNT, Wednesdays, 9 p.m. After being killed off rather spectacularly in The Lord of The Rings and the season finale of the first season of Game of Thrones, gruff alpha male Sean Bean needed to get a role that would give him some longevity. In TNT’s new spy drama, Bean plays a master [...]

The Knick

dvr this Cinemax, Friday, Aug. 8, 10 p.m. Steven Soderbergh directs this TV show about a New York City hospital at the turn of the last century.

They have been at each [...]

Fever Pitch

dvr this On Netflix While I have almost no interest in sports, let alone the World Cup, I love sports movie. Fever Pitch is Nick Hornby’s film, based on his memoir, about his love for soccer, or as they say in Britain, “football,” and his love for women, and how these intertwine. Colin Firth plays [...]
