'The Honorable Woman' deals deftly with a complex subject
Nessa Stein is Batman. She’s born into a world of wealth and privilege. She’s lost both of her parents, and even watched her father’s gruesome death enacted before her. And now, bound to no specific law, she wields her parents’ power.
But Nessa doesn’t live in Gotham City. She’s a second generation Israeli. Her father wasn’t a do-gooder philanthropist but a Holocaust survivor–turned–weapons manufacturer. And while Nessa begins The Honorable Woman by donning a new costume (the ceremonial member robes of House of Lords), her actions are predicated not on some abstract ideal, »

‘Undateable’ Renewed for Season 2 by NBC
Buddy comedy “Undateable” has been renewed for a second season by NBC.
NBC is in the hunt for new half-hours as it prepares for a massive overhaul of its comedy lineup in the coming season. “Undateable” was ordered last year for the 2013-14 season, but the Peacock couldn’t make room for it until the summer.
The show about four male friends and their dating challenges premiered May 29 and delivered respectable numbers (by summer standards) in back-to-back airings on Thursday, although viewership tailed off toward the end of its run. But NBC execs are said to be encouraged but the show’s creative direction and the appeal of stars Chris D’Elia, Brent Morin, Ron Funches and Rick Glassman.

Big Brother Recap: All for One
The Big Brother house should have a sign on its front door that reads “No Girls Allowed.”
Of the season’s first four evictions, three of the booted contestants have been ladies (and the only guy to be sent packing has been Devin, Dastardly Tyrant of the Land). And Thursday’s live eviction episode was no different; two women sat side by side once again, one of them much more at risk for leaving than the other.

Rookie Blue Recap: Deal With the Devil
It’s just not Oliver’s day on Thursday’s Rookie Blue as Duncan continues to cause problems for the officers of 15 Division. Meanwhile, Chris is caught mid-high, and Gail reaches out to her ex.
Duncan Fail Rating | I’m going to say nine, because at least he didn’t put any lives in physical jeopardy this time. Professional Standards pushes up the disciplinary meeting, forcing Oliver and Andy to scramble to put together her defense and explain why her reports on Duncan are kinder than reality. »

Our top moments of the week:
10. Best Impression: We're just going to pretend Zach's ridiculous gameplay this week on Big Brother is his impersonation of the recently evicted Devin. How else to explain his awful moves once he gets a slight taste of power as Hoh? The highlight of Zach's stupidity comes at the nomination ceremony, where he compares alliance member Christine to notorious Season 14 floater Jenn and calls ...

ABC's 'The Quest:' I'd rather be LARPing
It’s a pretty good time for fantasy on television. Not since the heady days of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess have we had so many swords, fortresses, and leather jerkins on our TVs at once—during prime time nonetheless. Enter ABC’s The Quest, a reality show that promises something new: a carefully crafted fantasy world that 12 contestants enter to compete for the honor of being the One True Hero, who will wield the Sunspear and banish evil from the world of Everealm.
At first, I was worried the show was going to be condescending—look »

ABC's Quest: Will You Continue On?
Everealm is holding out for a hero; he or she has got to be fast, has got to be strong and has got to… complete all the challenges on The Quest, a new reality competition show which premiered Thursday on ABC.
Fortunately, 12 potential heroes-in-training, or “Paladins,” have already crossed over to this mystical realm, making their way over hill and dale and the Marwood Forest to the kingdom of Saenctum, where they are immediately tasked with saving everyone from the evil Verlox.
But that’s not all that happened in Thursday’s premiere. Before you tell us what you thought about The Quest, »

Entertainment Geekly: Or maybe 'Twilight' was the best thing to happen to Comic-Con
Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!
“Were the Twilight movies good?” is not a question I want to even ask right now. It’s too complicated, with too many extremist perspectives on either side. There are the kids who grew up with the Twilight phenomenon as their entire teenage pop culture prism. (Remember: Thanks to the annual-ish release strategy and the real-life romance angle and the fact that Twilight soundtracks were sort of a thing, Twilight as experienced by »
