    The second season of The Newsroom premieres this Sunday on HBO, and for those who maybe didn’t tune in but kept an eye on critic reviews of and fan responses to Aaron Sorkin’s latest brain/ego child know the HBO drama’s freshman year was met with mixed feelings, to say the least.... read on

    I wish I could remember how anyone convinced me to watch Terriers. It has a singularly unpromising name and a less-than-gripping premise: a ex-alcoholic ex-cop, Hank, and his ex-con friend, Britt, solve small-time crimes in Southern Califonia. Donal Logue, who plays Hank, is always... read on

    So there's no news on the Hulu deal yet-- hopefully updates will be forthcoming when everyone has slipped out of their post-long weekend haze.

    But speaking of alternative content distribution, there's a little baby rumor going around that James Franco might appear in the upcoming... read on

    Just as important as what we watch, often, is how we choose to watch it. I was in college when streaming video became widespread, illegal sites like tv-links supplemented by torrented downloads in the days before Netflix streaming changed everything. Now most of my professional... read on
