31 scary TV episodes that truly terrified us

30 October 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Twilight Zone to Penny Dreadful, Doctor Who and more, Den Of Geek’s writers revisit the TV episodes that truly terrify them…

It’s Halloween! Icicles are glistening from window sills. Chestnuts are roasting on open fires. North Pole elves are… hang on, no. None of that nice, fluffy stuff is happening. At Halloween, demonic creatures hunt for flesh, monsters creep out of their graves, and TV does its level best to freak us all the hell out.

In the spirit of all that, we asked our writers to select and share the TV episodes, horror or otherwise, that have made them whimper with fear. Here they all are, 31 of them, because, well, at Halloween, we like things to add up to 31.

Note that this isn’t a Top 10, or a Best Of, nor is it listed in order of scariness. It’s a collection of the particular »

The Bridge Ep. 2.03 “Sorrowsworn” continues to slowly work out the kinks

24 July 2014 6:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Bridge Season 2, Episode 3 “Sorrowsworn”

Written by Patrick Somerville

Directed by Stefan Schwartz

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm Et on FX

“Sorrowsworn” is an interesting turning point for The Bridge, both in construction and delivery: continuing the trend of the last two episodes, “Sorrowsworn” layers more intertwining characters and stories into the larger story, while at the same time attempting to find intimate moments with characters, an interesting experiment in pressing on the gas pedal while slightly massaging the brake at the same time. It makes for an uneven ride at times, sure, but like last week’s episode, there’s the growing sensation that The Bridge is finding its direction as it continues its sophomore transformation.

In “Sorrowsworn”, that dichotomy comes from the “large” and “small” moments: when The Bridge is focused on the “bigger picture”, it still feels hazy as to why all these stories co-exist along side each other. »

Doctor Who: the film careers of Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi

4 June 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alex's series looking back at the film careers of actors who've played the Doctor finishes with Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi...

Feature

Read the previous part in this series: the film careers of Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, here.

By 2009, the new version of Doctor Who had become not only an integral part of Saturday night television and a huge Christmas ratings winner but also an international success all over again. David Tennant, who had played the Time Lord since 2005 and was, arguably, more popular than any Doctor since the mighty Tom Baker hung up his scarf in 1981, had announced his resignation from the part he loved in October 2008. Many wondered how the incoming showrunner, Steven Moffat, would follow Tennant and what kind of show would emerge.

Tennant spent much of 2009 on stage in Hamlet and was only able to devote small amounts of time to Doctor Who. Occasional specials »

The Americans Ep. 2.10 “Yousaf” forces things to get interesting

1 May 2014 7:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Americans Season 2, Episode 10 “Yousaf”

Written by Stephen Schiff & Stuart Zicherman

Directed by Stefan Schwartz

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm Et on FX

 

The Americans has always been great at balance: balancing attention between its two main characters, balancing the intelligence and effectiveness of both American and Russian operations, and fantastic at keeping proceedings from becoming too outlandish, soapy, or preachy. That careful construction is what makes an enjoyable episode like “Yousaf” feel a bit off: as season two continues to focus more and more on Philip’s breakdown, “Yousaf” goes a bit into left field, transforming Larrick into a Super Villian, and bringing back an unfamiliar face from season one to draw parallels to Elizabeth, who is sidelined for most of the hour (left to deal with Paige and her new Bible-loving ways).

And in reality, “Yousaf” doesn’t really do much to move things forward – the real plot movement comes from Larrick, »
