It looks like Adrien Brody’s magic lessons paid off.

Part one of Houdini garnered 3.7 million viewers last night, making it the most-viewed cable miniseries of this year.

Meyer.

The Wire, David Simon’s critically acclaimed series, will be re-mastered in HD, HBO confirmed to EW. But as exciting as that news is, the network added that it does “not have further information regarding the timeline.” A promo claiming that a “replay marathon” of the series would start September 4 on HBO Signature ran prematurely, HBO said, and the series will not be airing this month.

That’s not to say that one couldn’t watch The Wire now: it is currently available on HBO Go, Amazon Prime, and iTunes. The show, which ran for five seasons starting in 2002 and chronicled life in Baltimore, »

'The Walking Dead' stars Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan talk Glenn and Maggie

13 hours ago

Glenn and Maggie spent a good chunk of last season of The Walking Dead trying to find each other. They finally did! Annnnnnnd then they promptly got captured at Terminus. Well, that kind of sucks.

So that begs the question: Are Glenn and Maggie better off being safe but separate, or trapped together? And when a question begs, we ask it, so ask it we did of the actors who play Glenn and Maggie — Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan. Which scenario would Glenn and Maggie prefer? “That a good question,” said Cohan while taking a break from her EW Walking Dead cover shoot. »

'Houdini' is pure biopic cheese... and occasionally a campy delight

23 hours ago

There are at least a dozen great movies to be made out of the life of Harry Houdini, the magician/escapist/pre-cinematic showman/enemy of spiritualism. Unfortunately, History’s new Houdini tries to be all those movies and a few more. The result is a grab-bag of biopic clichés, awkwardly strung together by star Adrien Brody’s narration. Brody sounds like he’s auditioning for any of the parts in Sin City 3, and he overcooks every half-baked line into pure cheesecake: “The one thing I can’t seem to escape from… is me.” Or: “Some things can hit you in »

How the 'Masters of Sex' costume designer brought the show into the '60s

1 September 2014 9:50 AM, PDT

Masters of Sex has reached the ’60s. Over the course of “Asterion,” the seventh episode of the show’s second season, the setting jumped between 1958 and 1960. That posed a challenge for costume designer Ane Crabtree, who had to reflect the changing of the times in the characters’ garb. In fact, director Michael Dinner showed people quite literally “walking through time,” explained Crabtree. As Annaleigh Ashford’s character Betty Dimello, now working for the sex researchers, led guests through the lobby of Masters and Johnson’s new office building, both the outfits and the years changed. “I watched it twice because »

Watch an Internet couple meet Irl in the premiere of 'Love Prison'

1 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT

If you took MTV’s Catfish, removed Nev and Max (and all producers, for that matter), added a potentially haunted cabin with no escape, removed all technology, and added six days to the journey, you’d have A&E’s Love Prison. Confused?

In Love Prison, A&E finds couples who have been talking on the internet and brings them face-to-face. Only, they do it in a remote cabin on an island with absolutely no one else around. With cameras in the house following their every move, the couple then spends seven days together to ultimately decide if they want to pursue a relationship. »

'Falling Skies' season 4 finale: Showrunner David Eick answers your burning questions

31 August 2014 8:01 PM, PDT

Falling Skies wrapped up its fourth season Sunday with what may be the show’s most hopeful yet most enigmatic season closer.

Spoiler Alert: Details of tonight’s season 4 finale lie ahead!

The last couple minutes of the two-hour finale ended on a very hopeful note back on Earth. As Hal says, “The Espheni are sitting ducks for a change,” thanks to Lexi’s sacrificial destruction of the aliens’ power core. But above Earth’s atmosphere, things got really weird — the kind of weird that should have fans theorizing and debating throughout the long wait to the fifth and final season. »
