What's on the menu for 'Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown' season 4

12 hours ago

Anthony Bourdain has made a career of traveling—and eating his way through—the world. Following tradition, the globetrotting continues with season four of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, which kicked off Sunday with a delicious tour of Shanghai.

While lunching at Roy Choi’s pot last week, Bourdain talked about the new season, first trips, controversial storylines, the show’s aesthetic, and storytelling at large. Prepare for a severe case of wanderlust, and some serious food cravings, of course.

This season, Bourdain traveled to (in order of air date): The Bronx, Paraguay, Vietnam, Tanzania, Iran, Massachusetts, and Jamaica. There »

New 'Gotham' trailer previews entire season, introduces Victor Zsasz

15 hours ago

If you thought the origin story of Gotham would be anything but dark and twisty, then you should take a moment and prepare yourself for what comes next.

From Bruce Wayne’s attempts to “understand how Gotham works” to Oswald Cobblepot’s journey from bad to worse, the trailer offers insight into a world we’ve only just begun to understand.

'Arrow': Your one-minute refresher

16 hours ago

In season 2, Arrow was all about the rise of Slade/Deathstroke and his quest for revenge against Oliver. But after a handful of shocking farewells and an all-out war in Starling City, Deathstroke seems to be a thing of the past. But before you dive into all that Ray Palmer and Ra’s al Ghul have to offer in season 3, it’d probably be best to brush up on how things ended.

With that in mind, we’ve created a one-minute refresher that will catch you up (and get you ready to enjoy Oliver and Felicity’s date!).

Arrow returns Wednesday, »

'Castle' boss: Season 7 will reveal more of why Castle is the way he is

21 hours ago

When you end a season on a cliffhanger as big as Castle’s car accident at the end of season six, it’s difficult to start the next season with a large time jump. And thankfully, Castle will pick up right where it left off, with Beckett, still in her wedding dress, realizing that Castle is no longer in the burning car. That being said, the episode, like most Castle episodes, won’t play in real time all the way through.

With the episode focusing on Beckett’s hunt to find Castle, there will be a minor time jump within the episode. »

'Masters of Sex' showrunner teases Masters and Johnson's 'cuckoo' lives after fame

28 September 2014 8:15 PM, PDT

Masters of Sex’s second season found Masters and Johnson exploring sexual dysfunction (including Bill’s), Libby Masters getting involved with St. Louis’ racial politics, and the show entering the Kennedy era.

In the final scene of the season, against the backdrop of the JFK’s inauguration, Masters (Michael Sheen) and Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) are resolutely moving forward with their work, but not without having endured a series of personal and professional failures of a sort. The CBS feature about them made sex an implication rather than a focus, presenting it as squeaky clean rather than scientifically rigorous. When Bill »
