The Strain: Is FX's Vampire Drama Too Graphic?

8 hours ago

Warning: The Strain might not be for everyone.

FX's new vampire drama isn't a melancholy love story about the undead cursed to walk the earth for eternity and forced to hide their true nature. Instead, these vampires are fierce, blood-hungry killing machines with basically one goal: spread the strain of vampirism around the world.

Based on the novels from Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, the horror story follows Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control, whose team is called in to investigate a mysterious "dead" plane that lands at JFK. Every passenger, save for four, have mysteriously died from an unknown virus that will soon turn them into vampires — cogs in the ultimate war in which vampires will take over the world.

15 hours ago

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Season 2 of Orange Is the New Black. Read at your own risk.] 

Daya and Bennett have very different ideas regarding their relationship on Orange Is the New Black and it seems Dascha Polanco and Matt McGorry are no different. When TVGuide.com recently spoke to the pair they offered radically different opinions regarding the morality of their characters' relationship. But there is one thing they agree on: Daya had some bad ideas this season.

Weekend TV: FX's Creepy Strain, Return of Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex

17 hours ago

"It's not for everyone," growls the grizzled, sword-wielding Armenian pawnshop owner (Game of Thrones' David Bradley), whose unromantic notion of vampire slaying includes mass decapitations and body burnings. Likewise, FX's deliciously freaky and gruesomely graphic The Strain (Sunday, 10/9c) won't be for all tastes. But the network is betting, probably correctly, that a midsummer popcorn feast of classic monster-movie horror, served without apology and blessedly free of irony, will resonate with fright fans eager to jump out of their seats, which turns out to be a Strain specialty. This could, and deserves to be, FX's Walking Dead-sized blockbuster.

Watch This Tonight: Hemlock Grove

10 July 2014 10:00 PM, PDT

Hemlock Grove might not have the cache of Netflix's other original offerings, but it does have one thing in spades: absurdity.

When the supernatural drama returns for Season 2 this Friday, Peter (Landon Liboiron) and Roman (Bill Skarsgard) are still on the outs while they deal with their personal demons (literally!). As it turns out, Peter's decision to turn on the wrong moon has more repercussions that anyone imagined.

10 July 2014 5:14 PM, PDT

According to the Emmy Awards ballot, True Detective isn't a miniseries, but Fargo and American Horror Story: Coven are. Orange is the New Black, Nurse Jackie and Shameless are comedies, even though there are frequently more tears than laughs on those shows.

Critic's Notebook: The Emmy Nominations

10 July 2014 1:45 PM, PDT

No one expects the Emmy nominations to please everybody — there's simply too much TV these days, including on unconventional platforms like Netflix, and there are always going to be shows and performers that won't make the cut, however deserving. But even when the Emmy voters get something right, like adding HBO's freshman hoot Silicon Valley to the best-comedy contenders, we still find ourselves griping over where they stumbled, nowhere more glaringly than in the drama-series race. (For a list of nominees in the major categories, go here.)

Andy Cohen Dishes on Five Years of Watch What Happens Live

10 July 2014 4:01 AM, PDT

It's the little late-night talk show that could. Next week, Watch What Happens Live — the kooky, wildly unpredictable chat-fest hosted by Andy Cohen — marks its fifth year on the air. That's no small feat, considering its very humble beginning as a shoestring web series anchored by a largely unknown Bravo network executive. Since then, plenty has changed. For starters, Cohen has become a celebrity in his own right, with one bestselling book down and a second due in the fall. And the ratings have grown. About 334,000 people tuned in for the first televised episode in 2009; this spring, Wwhl hit an all-time high of 3.9 million viewers, and it's up 7 percent over Conan this season. The star power is also higher wattage. Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Meryl Streep, Lindsay Lohan and Oprah Winfrey are among the guests who have partaken in the mélange of parlor games, free-flowing cocktails and general pop-culture revelry »

Video: The Beastie Boys visit Steve Buscemi on AOL's Park Bench

9 July 2014 8:25 AM, PDT

Very few episodes of Steve Buscemi's AOL talk show Park Bench actually take place on a bench. Or in a park. But the actor-host still gets his guests to talk as candidly as if they were simply hanging outside with a friend. "I'm no Dick Cavett, but I did manage to squeak by," Buscemi says of hosting the show, which unveils its final seven episodes simultaneously on Thursday, July 10. Among the guests: Method Man, the Beastie Boys, Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams, artist Julian Schnabel, and Buscemi's Boardwalk Empire co-stars Michael Kenneth Williams and Bobby Cannavale.

"Method Man likes corny jokes, so he's my kind of guy," Buscemi says. "The Beastie Boys are very funny, and are also very good at sports. And Jessica Williams does a mean pigeon impersonation." For a sample, check out this exclusive outtake with the Beasties.
