In Season 2 (premiering Monday, June 8 at 10/9c), San Francisco homicide detectives Terry English (played by Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) investigate one of the most shocking crimes in the city’s history, a series of murders that quickly expose a compromised police force where »
In "Aquarius," David Duchovny plays an La cop in 1967 with old-school hair and old-school values. Asked to find a teenage girl who has vanished into the city's hippie underbelly, he reluctantly teams with a shaggy-haired young cop with crazy new ideas about civil liberties and equality. Very quickly, then, the series sets itself up as an ideological clash between the veteran and the rookie, even as they collaborate to find the girl and potentially put a charge on the charismatic guy named Charles Manson who has her under his sway. The generation gap on the show is pretty stock stuff, unfortunately. Far more interesting, if not creatively successful, is the way that "Aquarius" itself is caught between multiple generations of television at once, attempting to function simultaneously as a broadcast network drama, an edgier cable-style show, and something designed to be binged like it was being released by Netflix or Amazon. »

Many broken men populate Clint Eastwood’s knotty cinematic sandbox. An inciting action forces them to brazenly jump from normal life in search of revenge or salvation, burying themselves in self-righteousness and self-pity along the way. Still, despite this stubborn resolve their endgame often hinges on a homecoming of sorts, whether it’s written in blood or tears. By the end of 2014, Eastwood will have released two new films in very different genres that complicate this motif. Both Jersey Boys and American Sniper examine elite professionals whose work takes them on the road, away from the domestic confines of family and femininity to an isolated place where chaotic situations are common. But instead of doing everything in their power to return home, these men manipulate the classic “hero’s journey” as a selfish way to avoid the complex perspectives of those they’ve left behind or forgotten.
