By Zan Romanoff

Teen Wolf seems very determined to remind us that its characters-- no matter how smooth their skin or ripped their abs-- are still in high school. The first episode of the season opened... read on

  • Turn yourself in to ‘Orange Is the New Black’

    By Melissa Weller

    July 16, 2013 | 1:22 pm

    Orange Is the New Black, adapted from the 2011 memoir of the same name, is, in a word, perfect. Perfect pacing, perfectly scripted, perfectly performed. A voluntary incarceration to the couch proved a fine way to spend the weekend, and many who participated in this latest Netflix... read on

  • What I Watched This Weekend: Camp, Orange is the New Black

    By Zan Romanoff

    Summer is my favorite season, I think, which is a funny thing to say because the reason I love it so much is that it's all about escape. Kids go to camp and adults takes weeks seaside, lakeside, poolside, slipping out of whatever unbearable city we're inhabiting to be somewhere... read on

  • What You Should Be Watching: Terriers

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 11, 2013 | 1:53 pm

    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

  • Twisted Recap: The Fest and the Furious

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 10, 2013 | 1:04 pm

    Twisted is, perhaps unsurprisingly, a weird show. It's centered around a pre-pubescent murderer recently released from juvenile hall, a fifteen year old boy named Danny Desai who claims he did what he did for a reason he can't reveal. He also claims he has nothing to do with the... read on

  • Teen Wolf: Motel California Recap

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 9, 2013 | 2:00 pm

    Teen Wolf has always had cinematic aspirations, but they've really come to the fore this season, which is replete with long shots sweeping across muted color palettes and eerie, empty vistas. The first episode featured a full-on Hitchcock homage as a flock of black birds invaded a... read on

  • Why I Can’t Quit Watching: True Blood

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 8, 2013 | 2:30 pm

    True Blood premiered in a different era. It was a pre-Twilight time, when vampires weren't considered standard young adult fare-- before The Vampire Diaries and The Mortal Instruments and all of their various imitators and competitors. The first season was a little uneven,... read on
