Sleepy Hollow

dvr this Fox, Mondays, 9 p.m. The premise of Sleepy Hollow is absurd: Ichibod Crane and the Headless Horseman are suddenly brought back to life in modern-day Massachusetts, and they are linked to a massive, supernatural worldwide conspiracy. The ridiculousness works, mostly because of Tim Mison as Crane; he is arch and serious and very [...]

American Horror Story: Coven

dvr this FX, Wednesdays, 10 p.m. I’m one of the few people who greatly disliked the first two seasons of American Horror Story. I found them confusing, sadistic and misogynistic, like a supernatural version of Ryan Murphy’s seminal series Nip/Tuck. However, I’m rather excited about the new season, which Murphy promises to be less cruel [...]

House of Versace

dvr this Lifetime, Saturday, Oct. 5, 8 p.m. House of Versace tells the story of the rise of Gianni Versace (Enrico Colantoni) and the aftermath of his murder (by gay spree killer Andrew Cunanan), when his sister Donatella took over his famed fashion line. Gina Gershon’s Donatella could be iconic, and the trailer for the [...]

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Andre Braugher in Brooklyn Nine-Nine dvr this Fox, Tuesdays, 8 p.m. Michael Schur and Dan Goor, two of the people behind Parks & Recreation, have created a police station workplace comedy that exists somewhere between Barney Miller and The Office. It’s a vehicle for Saturday Night Live’s Andy Samburg, and he’s doing his schtick: wacky [...]

Logan’s Run

dvr this Turner Classic Movies, Friday, Sept. 13, 9:15 p.m. Two hundred years from now, the survivors of humanity all live in a domed city and their lives are totally controlled by a computer that, among other unsavory things, kills every person when he or she becomes 30, though they think being vaporized means they [...]

The Killing

DVR This: AMC, Available on Amazon.com and ITunes While a bunch of people stopped watching The Killing – the moody, slow and rainy series about murder detectives in Seattle – after they failed to reveal who killed Rose Larsen at the end of season 1, I suggest you return, either on TV or DVD. This [...]

West Side Story

dvr this Turner Classic Movies, Sunday, Aug. 18, 6 a.m. Arguably the greatest film musical ever made, West Side Story won 10 Oscars and is still an astonishing site to behold. Mostly this is because of Robert Wise’s and Jerome Robbins’ direction, which took a very stagey show and made it believable on the streets [...]

The Hunger

dvr this Turner Classic Movies, Tuesday, August 13, 1:15am TCM has The Hunger listed as a “horror” film, but it’s not. The movie is somewhat suspenseful, but it’s certainly not scary. It just happens to be about vampires. Really, really, really sexy vampires. Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie are a centuries-old vampire couple until Deneuve [...]

Orange is the New Black

dvr this OK, so you don’t really record Orange is the New Black, but watching it on instant Netflix is basically the same idea. However you describe it, you should be watching it. Based on Piper Kerman’s memoir of the same name, Orange is the story of a blonde yuppie who is sent to prison [...]

Tootsie

dvr this Turner Classic Movies, Saturday, July 27, 5 p.m. Dustin Hoffman is an out of work actor who pretends to be a woman to get a role on a soap opera. It works, and suddenly he’s a star – or rather, his uptight, lightly frumpy alter ego is. To make matters worse, he falls [...]
