Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

Walt Disney Pictures has released a brand new TV Spot for Gore Verbinski’s “The Lone Ranger,” starring Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter.
From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.

PBS has demonstrated it can compete in the rough-and-tumble of primetime with the breakthrough success of “Downton Abbey.” Yet that only makes it easier to forget how against the grain public television often runs, daring to be wonky – and in some instances, flat-out boring. “Boring” isn’t always bad – “The Newshour” and “Frontline” aren’t afraid to let eyes glaze over, while conveying important news and information – but it won’t cut through the clutter. And it’s the adjective I kept coming back to watching back-to-back specials that premiere May 7, “Ted Talks Education” and the opener to the four-part “Constitution USA With Peter Sagal.”
Introduced as the first Ted event produced specifically for television, and hosted by John Legend (who even sings), “Ted Talks Education” certainly tackles a topic that should be of enormous interest to millions of viewers: How to improve what most would acknowledge is a struggling education system in the U. »

This week’s episode of The Good Wife felt like a bit of a let down after the pomp and circumstance of last week’s murder mystery and Shamrock Ball, but alas, we all have to get back to the grind at sometime. Although back to the grind for Lockhart Gardner is currently feeling a little sweeter, as they’re moving back into the 3284th floor or whatever it is, which means Cary and Alicia officially have their own offices again. Which actually makes me feel a little sad? But since Alicia’s an equity partner now, she’s been upgraded to Office Fancypants status:
It’s mine? All mine?
Diane tells her she has a $10,000 stipend to decorate. What! I know this probably isn’t that much in hot shot lawyer world, but — $10,000! Holy crap! I’ll decorate You!

Rabe will also return to "American Horror Story" for Season 3.

Les Misérables (2012)
Director: Tom Hooper
Entertainment grade: C
History grade: C
The June rebellion of 1832 was an uprising in Paris against the rule of King Louis-Philippe, fuelled by economic hardship and a cholera epidemic. It was quashed, and is remembered mainly for its inclusion in Victor Hugo's 1862 novel, Les Misérables.
The film begins with Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) completing 19 years of hard labour: the penalty for stealing bread and repeatedly trying to escape. His overseer is the unrelenting Javert (Russell Crowe). Les Misérables was inspired in part by the true story of Eugène-François Vidocq, who turned a criminal career into an anti-crime industry. He created the Bureau des Renseignements, said to be the world's first detective agency, in 1833, though he himself continued to be pursued by police. »
