Mad Men Recap: “A Day’s Work”

1 hour ago

After a subdued premiere, "A Day's Work" was possibly one of the most positive and gratifying Mad Men episodes in a long while.  One of the major, ongoing frustrations with the show for many viewers is a lack of redemption, particularly regarding Don.  "A Day's Work" starts out with things looking grim -- Don looks at a bottle, after spending an afternoon eating Ritz crackers and watching TV, as a roach scurries across the floor.  He's dressed up with nowhere to go, as Dawn drops off some files and some tidbits from the office.  But things are not as they seem.  Hit the jump for why I don't want you going to funerals. A depressed Don is somewhere the show has been before, but no matter how rock-bottom, things always ended up the same.  For once though (and his is damned rock-bottom) they aren't.  "A Day's Work" showed Don resisting »

First Clip from Disney Xd’s Upcoming Animated Series Star Wars Rebels

2 hours ago

This weekend at WonderCon, Disney premiered the first Star Wars Rebels clip.  The animated series will take place about 14 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith and centers on the fledgling rebellion as the Empire hunts down the last of the Jedi Knights to secure rule of the galaxy.  I never watched any of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, so I don't know how this will compare, but I assume it's going for the same audience. Hit the jump to check out the clip.  Star Wars Rebels is scheduled to premiere in the fall as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, and will be followed by a series on Disney Xd. Via Disney.

The post First Clip from Disney Xd’s Upcoming Animated Series Star Wars Rebels appeared first on Collider. »

Silicon Valley Recap: “Articles of Incorporation”

3 hours ago

In its third episode, "Articles of Incorporation," Silicon Valley continued to explore every step of the startup process.  As the series has shown, almost all aspects are ripe for satire.  "Articles of Incorporation" also deftly continued the process not only of Richard learning and developing as the head of his business, but deepening the relationships among the central characters, giving them both believable and comically absurd facets.  Hit the jump for why "small is the new big!" There could not have been a more perfect way to kick off an episode of Silicon Valley than to have Gavin Belson in a ridiculous video touting the Nucleus project, ending with: "if we can make your audio and video files smaller, we can make cancer smaller.  And hunger.  And AIDS."  Gavin may be the broadest and most ridiculous of all the characters so far on the show (yes, including Erlich), because he's »

Game Of Thrones Recap: “Breaker of Chains”

3 hours ago

Any Game of Thrones episode with a name like "Breaker of Chains" is undoubtedly going to star Dany, Mother of Dragons and Freer of Slaves.  But "Breaker of Chains" also did a lot more, orienting characters and viewers in the aftermath of last week's big moment.  A Storm of Swords is an excellent book, and the episode sticking so close to the source material made it an episode filled with necessary world-building, history and purpose.  How many Starks are they going to behead before you hit the jump? In Westeros, there's no time to linger in mourning, or just about anything else.  This was illustrated pretty clearly with Jaime and Cersei having violent but passionate grief sex, with the body of their incest-bred child lying cold on a slab next to them.  Tywin already has his eye on the next king -- Joff's younger and much more innocent brother Tommen »
