Examining the impulse - why do we binge some things and not others?

17 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are few things this year that I have anticipated more than "Sense8," the new Netflix series by J. Michael Straczynski and the Wachowskis. Meanwhile, at the start of this year, I still hadn't seen a single episode of "Orange Is The New Black." So why is it that I burned through season three of Jenji Kohan's prison series, and I have the entire run of "Sense8," minus the first episode, still sitting there in my Netflix queue waiting for the exact right moment? Binge watching has become a cultural force over the last few years, but I would argue that it really became a thing with the rise of DVD. One of the things my wife and I used to do together was burn through shows that she had missed or never had an opportunity to see growing up in Argentina. When I was flipping out about the »

Songs on Screen: 'Streets of Fire's Lost Masterpiece 'I Can Dream About You'

25 June 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Songs On Screen: All week HitFix will be featuring tributes by writers to their favorite musical moments from TV and film. Check out all the entries in the series here.  When we talk about underrated directors, it's hard not to mention Walter Hill.  Hill is an underrated director, the way Michael Ritchie and Peter Yates were underrated directors, the way Roger Donaldson, Joe Dante, and Fred Schepisi are underrated directors. They’re all underrated because it’s only when you look at their filmographies that the numbers start to total up and you realize, boy, he directed a lot of really good movies.   In Hill’s case, that list includes "The Warriors," "48 Hours," "The Long Riders," "Southern Comfort,: "Hard Times," "Trespass," and "Wild Bill."  Some great.  Some solid.  (My personal favorite of those is Hard Times, a pulpy film about bare-knuckle boxers in the Great Depression.)  There were clunkers »

‘The Brink’ Review: Tim Robbins, Jack Black Lead Smart Sex, Drugs and Drone Strikes Comedy

21 June 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

HBO’s new series “The Brink” is a dark comedy set in the world of U.S. government and foreign affairs. Creators/executive producers Roberto Benabib (“Weeds”) and Kim Benabib skewer those who vie, lust and live for power. With a strong cast led by Tim Robbins, Jack Black, Pablo Schreiber and Aasif Mandvi, “The Brink” aims to be closer in tone to “Dr. Strangelove” than “The West Wing,” and that bodes well for the rest of the season. As “The Brink” opens, a political crisis unfolds in Pakistan. The pilot episode examines that situation’s effect on three men: »

Orange Is the New Black Recap: Hanging With My Boo

15 June 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I am as liberal as a homosexual member of Occupy Wall Street playing hackey sack in an Elizabeth Warren T-shirt at a pro-choice rally on the campus of a Northeastern liberal-arts college that respects everyone’s personhood and demands trigger warnings. Because of that, I love when my politics are reflected in the television I watch. Heck, I still DVR reruns of blue-state nocturnal emission The West Wing just so I can pretend like every day is the Clinton administration. As much as I love my shows to be lefter than left, the only time I hate it is when the politics make for really sloppy storytelling, and that seems to be what happened with this episode of our favorite prison drama. Because Orange Is the New Black has the same political values of those at a vegan, organic Sarah Lawrence alumni pot luck, everything about this episode featuring Big Boo, »

Review: The Newsroom The Complete Third Season

15 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Aaron Sorkin is an exceptionally talent writer who brings a playwright’s sensibilities to television which means his characters talk. A lot. But unlike so many prime time series, his characters actually have something to say. It’s a shame more people don’t want to hear whatever it is being discussed because Sorkin series tend not to last very long.

There were two seasons of Sports Night, four Sorkin-produced episodes of The West Wing and a single uneven season of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. For his self-proclaimed final act in television, Sorkin gave us three ever-shortened seasons of The Newsroom. This last ran on HBO and other than using a handful of words, could have easily aired on the major networks. After all, Sorkin didn’t pander with nudity or excessive violence.

The series’ conceit was that we were watching the fall and rise of network anchor »

The definitive Top 25 TV kisses of all time from Ross and Rachel to Sheldon and Amy: 25-11

11 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A hallmark of a great TV series, whether it's a drama, comedy, soap or even sci-fi, is an epic romantic journey between two characters.

We at Digital Spy HQ are die-hard romantics, and so we've compiled a definitive Top 25 of the best TV kisses of all time (it included a whole voting process and spreadsheet and everything).

Check out the first part below, and make sure to come back tomorrow (June 13) for the final Top 10.

25. Piper and Alex in Orange is the New Black

There's nothing quite like being locked up in jail with your ex-lover to build up sexual tension, but this climactic make-out session in Litchfield's chapel pays off more than just Piper and Alex's relationship.

Piper's just returned from a terrifying spell in solitary confinement, where she was sent by Healy in a fit of homophobic rage after he saw her dancing with Alex, so Piper »

Lizzy Caplan, Allison Janney Riff on Improv, Theater and Emotional Scenes (Video)

11 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Though one’s now starring in a drama, the other in a comedy, Lizzy Caplan (“Masters of Sex”) and Allison Janney (“Mom”) have both famously spent time in the other category — and agree that the lines are now getting blurred. Their back-and-forth banter at Variety’s “Actors on Actors” studio proved the point, as the actresses chatted about the thrill of doing theater, and the emotional toll of getting into character.

Lizzy Caplan: I was wondering what your first job on television was.

Allison Janney: It was a small teeny role on a Bill Cosby show.

Caplan: Stop.

Janney: I’m not kidding you!

Caplan: Did he give you any…

Janney: Nothing untoward happened! He wanted me to play a janitor and then I was a school teacher. He kept changing what my part was. I don’t remember what the show was called. And that was my first TV show! »

Actors Known For Leading Roles Make Waves in Supporting Parts

9 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Jon Voight agreed to take the role of Mickey on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” he was enthusiastic about being a part of a capable ensemble and didn’t give any thought to where his name might land in the credits.

“I’m a real character actor. I like stutters and limps,” says Voight, who built a career on playing leading men in films like 1969’s “Midnight Cowboy” and 1978’s “Coming Home,” for which he won an Oscar. “Every role is a character, and some of the characters are enjoyable to me because they’re so crazy. So Mickey’s perfect. I was fortunate to meet with him at this juncture.”

While some supporting actors, like “Parks and Recreation’s” Chris Pratt, enjoy their upgrade to leading man status, it’s even more common the other way around.

Bradley Whitford Remembers ‘West Wing’ v. ‘Sopranos,’ Winning an Emmy

3 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For a few years in the early 2000s, the best way to win an Emmy was to get a role on “The West Wing.” Original cast member Bradley Whitford had his turn in the second season, when his character grappled with Ptsd after surviving an assassination attempt. More recently, Whitford scored memorable guest turns on Amazon’s “Transparent” (for which he recently won a TV Critics Choice award for guest actor) and Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and joined the cast of Showtime’s frosh comedy “Happyish.”

The West Wing” was an Emmy staple during its run. What was that experience like?

The weird thing about doing a television show like “The West Wing” is you get a crash course (in awards season). It’s not like a Broadway play — you know, “The Book of Mormon,” they go to an awards show once. You’re on a TV show that’s »
