  • ‘Black Mirror': You May Have Missed These Two Big Celebrity Cameos in ‘USS Callister’

    Chances are if you’ve dived into Season 4 of “Black Mirror” on Netflix you’ve already seen the episode “USS Callister,” given that it’s first in the given order on the streaming service. It’s a good one to kick off the season, because it’s a nice mix of the standard “Black Mirror” cynicism with a dose of cathartic triumph over the toxicity of nerddom — an example of the tech nightmares the show loves to present as obstacles rather than just a permanent quagmire of sadness. Within that story there’s a couple of Easter eggs in the form of actors making surprise appearances: Kirsten Dunst and Aaron Paul, both of whom have a real life connection to “USS Callister” lead actor Jesse Plemons.

  • ‘Fargo’ Preview: 5 Reasons You Should Be Watching This Show

    We’re halfway through the new season of Fargo, and I’m really surprised this superb edition of the show isn’t more of a hit, more talked-about and discussed.

Drama, comedy, action, a pleasingly intricate plot that mixes thriller action scenes and a murder mystery.

  • 'Fargo' Season 2 Premiere Recap: Ah Jeez, Not Again

    Related: Ken Tucker Reviews the New Season of ‘Fargo’ Let’s play detective and examine tonight’s Season 2 premiere to determine what we liked (a lot), what we didn’t like (not very much), and the burning questions we’re looking forward to seeing the rest of the season answer.   What We Liked: First off, this season looks great, visually. Yes, Season 2 is technically a prequel, with Molly’s state trooper dad Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson) investigating a grisly triple homicide at a local Waffle Hut.

  • 'Fargo' Returns With Brutal Murders And Good Manners

  • Bostonian Customs Agent to Joel Edgerton: 'Don't F--k Up' Accent in 'Black Mass'

Black Mass, which tells the story of crime boss James 'Whitey’ Bulger (Johnny Depp), who ruled the streets of South Boston through much of the 1970s and '80s, is an ensemble brimming with excellent performances and spot-on “Southie” accents.

  • 'Fargo' Season 2 Preview: The Cast on '70s Hair, Minnesota Accents, and Ronald Reagan

    Fans of the Coen brothers’ Oscar-winning 1996 film Fargo were understandably skeptical when FX announced they were turning it into a TV series. But those who did tune in were rewarded with one of last year’s best TV shows, one that honored the original movie while telling a fresh story all its own. And a similar leap of faith may be needed as Fargo moves into Season 2 (debuting Oct. 12): The new season, a prequel set in 1979 and starring Patrick Wilson as a young version of Molly’s dad Lou Solverson, is strikingly different in style, using ‘70s-style, Tarantino-esque split-screens and freeze-frames to tell another tale of small-town murder, but still keeping its pitch-black sense of humor intact. Watch the trailer for Fargo Season 2 right here: “It’s a completely new invention, it’s a completely new story,” showrunner Noah Hawley told reporters Friday during FX’s summer press tour.
