We’ve just passed the halfway point of the year and already there have been a host of gasp-inducing, scream worthy, and jump-out-of-your-chair-and-fling-your-remote-at-the-screen scenes that remind us we’re in the second Golden Age of Television. So many, in fact, that we can’t wait for December to round them all up, so here are our 10 favorite firework moments of 2017 so far. WARNING: It’s all spoilers from here on out!
With so much to watch on TV it can be difficult to plan ahead. But we’re here to help! Here are the five shows you won't want to miss this week.
In the “The House of Special Purpose" episode of "Fargo," a sex tape, a coffee mug, and a man named Dollars wreak all kinds of havoc on the Stussy contingent.
We talk to "Fargo" star Mary Elizabeth Winstead about the deliciousness of being Nikki Swango, including why she embraced playing a sexy character for the first time and why THAT bloody scene was so fun to play out.
Set in 2010 Minnesota, the new season of Fargo tells another tale of violent, bungled crime, this time featuring Ewan McGregor in two roles, as warring brothers. The setup is that Ray feels Emmit bilked him on their inheritance awhile back, and he’s nursing a grudge. Now, with his new girlfriend, Nikki (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Ray wants both money and revenge: His plan is to steal a valuable stamp in Emmit’s possession, to redeem for a lot of cash and to humiliate his brother.
Fargo Season 3 Preview: Noah Hawley, Ewan McGregor, and Carrie Coon tell us what to expect in Season 3 of the Emmy-winning FX series.
The Emmys: Who Should Win Note the phrasing here: These are picks for who I think should win the Emmy awards that will be handed out on Sunday night. (I’ll do a Who Will Win predictive column on Thursday.) This year, it’s frequently going to come down to Old(er) Pro versus New Blood in many categories. Compare your “should”—who you think deserves to win, versus who will win based on everything you know about Emmy awards past—to my hopes and dreams.
Half of Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards show will give prizes to TV shows—a wide range of shows, most from cable and streaming outlets, few from the major networks. There are a lot of big names and big talent involved. Here are my predictions for who will win. Please feel free to add your own predictions to mine in the comments section.
There was an unprecedented variety of excellent dramas this year… as well as an unprecedented amount of them. But with the range of tone, genre, casting, styles of writing and direction — this was truly a ripe year for drama, spreading across network, basic and premium cable, and streaming as well. Here are my picks for the best of them.
Great episodes are the ones that become a part of the larger cultural conversation, like Inside Amy Schumer’s “12 Angry Men” and the Jinx finale. A great episode can hook you into a show at the start by establishing a strong point of view, as the pilots for Empire and UnREAL did.
The 10-episode first season of 'The Bastard Executioner' from Kurt Sutter debuts Tuesday, September 15 at 10 PM with a two-hour premiere.
Sure, the second season of True Detective is all well and good, but we’re still waiting for an encore from that other cable crime anthology: FX’s Fargo, which returns for Season 2 this September. And now, we have our first footage from the new installment in the form of two new teasers.
On January 10, 1999, a bathrobe-clad Tony Soprano first bent over to pick up a Star-Ledger in his driveway — and TV changed forever. No reality TV here, folks: just the 99 richest, most fascinating fictional characters from both comedies and dramas to grace the small screen over the past decade and a half. You don’t ever want to meet someone like Wilhelmina Slater in real life, but the former wicked witch of primetime — who was based on the likes of Cruella de Vil and Maleficent — is a total delight on television.
