Twin Peaks to Cracker: your favourite TV episodes of all time

21 September 2016 4:39 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With seminal moments in everything from ER to Boys from the Blackstuff, our readers nominate their top hours of television drama ever – and most of it was even made before the year 2000

The Game of Thrones episode Battle of the Bastards has won a record seven Emmys, which prompted a Guardian article on six of the best hours of TV drama ever made.

Some of you agreed; quite a lot of you, not so much. Many of you couldn’t even agree on the best episodes of the series listed.

Related: What was the best hour of television ever?

I'm desperate father.

Call me Dan.

I'm Desperate Dan.

Doctor Who's own Heaven Sent - Peter Capaldi's masterful one-hander. Simply sublime.

The last episode of Twin Peaks. Bold, bewildering, brutal, beautiful. Nothing like it before or since.

As I once said, only David Lynch would have his protagonist walk »

Revisiting Star Trek Tng: The Drumhead

James Hunt Sep 16, 2016

Witch hunts, interrogation and paranoia feature in fairly straightforward space-court Star Trek: Tng episode The Drumhead...

This review contains spoilers.

4.21 The Drumhead

Sabotage! On board the Enterprise! D! Cue up the Beastie Boys! (Actually don’t, we’ve all seen Star Trek Beyond and the last thing we need is that being taken literally again.)

But regardless, a Klingon Exchange officer – J’Dan the Exobiologist – stands (well, sits) accused of trying to blow up the Enterprise’s engines and funnelling secrets to the Romulans. In an attempt to establish his innocence he tries to bribe Worf, who gives him the full Space Rodney King treatment in a scene which I can’t decide if I’m supposed to feel uncomfortable with or not.

Luckily, one of Starfleet’s meddling Admirals is around to help investigate this potential espionage onboard the Enterprise. Not only that, Admiral Satie has »

Alex is definitely going down, the only question is whether Meredith is going with him.

In this exclusive Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 promo, which is an expanded version of the truncated sneak peek we ran earlier this week, Alex and Meredith are seen having a rather tense pow-wow about his current, rather precarious predicament (you know, him beating Andrew to near death).

Venice Film Review: ‘Heal the Living’

4 September 2016 3:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A 17-year-old car crash victim lies brain-dead in hospital, as doctors urgently pitch the virtues of organ donation to his distraught parents; over in another town, a middle-aged mother of two with a severely degenerative heart condition goes on the waiting list for a transplant. What sounds like fodder for a routinely gripping episode of “ER” is complicated with rare depths of personal and sensual detail in French director Katell Quillévéré’s sublimely compassionate, heart-crushing third feature “Heal the Living.” More polished but no less authentically humane than her previous works “Suzanne” and “Love Like Poison,” this spidering ensemble piece — adapted from Maylis de Kerangal’s internationally acclaimed 2014 novel — boasts beautifully pitched performances from a handpicked cast that includes Tahar Rahim and Emmanuelle Seigner. But it’s Quillévéré’s soaring visual and sonic acumen (with an assist from composer Alexandre Desplat, here in matchless form) that suffuses a potentially familiar hospital weeper with true grace. »
