Review: AMC's 'Turn' a middling Revolutionary War drama

4 April 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last month, in trying to identify the greatest TV opening credit sequences of all time, I noted that a great credit sequence can make me more kindly disposed to a mediocre show than I'd be without it. Take away the Aloe Blacc song and those great New York City photographs, and "How To Make It In America" is among the more forgettable comedies HBO's ever given us, and yet those credits kept me watching well into the second season just because I enjoyed them and they hinted at a better version of the show. Another way of looking at that, though, is that a great opening credits sequence can make you think less of a show that doesn't live up to it. Case in point: "Turn," AMC's new Revolutionary War spy drama, which debuts Sunday night at 9. In a vacuum, it's about on par with early episodes of another AMC »

Jamie Chung: Bryan Greenberg Is Better at Wedding Planning Than I Am

14 March 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

No bridezilla here. Jamie Chung says fiancé Bryan Greenberg is better at calling the shots when it comes to their upcoming nuptials. "We're equally excited," the Believe star tells People. The former How to Make It in America and One Tree Hill actor, 35, surprised Chung, 30, by popping the question in her native San Francisco over the holidays, and, since then, the two have been in full-fledged planning mode. "Actually, he's better at planning parties than I am," admits Chung - though she hasn't relinquished control altogether. "He wants a big blow out and I want to keep it intimate, so »

The 25 best TV opening credit sequences of all-time

6 March 2014 8:08 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Among the many delights of "True Detective," which concludes its first season on Sunday night, has been the show's creepy, evocative opening credits sequence, which juxtaposes mundane imagery with the sort of dark symbols of sex and violence that Rust Cohle and Marty Hart deal with every day. That title sequence continues a long tradition at HBO going all the way back to "Oz" (which had the show's creator Tom Fontana getting tattooed with the show's logo, interspersed with jarring prison imagery), "Sex and the City" (Carrie Bradshaw's fairy princess moment is ruined by a passing bus), "The Sopranos" (Tony takes the long, geographically illogical drive from Manhattan to his suburban Jersey home) and "Six Feet Under" (haunting images of our fragile mortality). Not every HBO show has been great, but you can usually count on them to have a notable opening; "How to Make It In America" was about »

With the Need for Speed movie revving its engine ahead of its release next month, Touchstone Pictures has debuted the first clip from the video game adaptation which sees Michael Keaton (RoboCop) getting psyched about "the race before the race" and also features Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul alongside Imogen Poots (Fright Night)....

Talking to Jill Soloway About Her Wonderful Amazon Pilot, Transparent

13 February 2014 1:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jill Soloway cut her teeth on the late great Six Feet Under, where she started out as a writer and rose to co-executive producer. After that came executive producing roles on United States of Tara and How to Make It in America, and then a breakout Sundance hit with Afternoon Delight, which Soloway wrote and directed. Now she has a new pilot at Amazon called Transparent, about divorced parents, their adult children, and everyone's need to figure out who they are and how they relate to each other. The pilot is pretty damn wonderful. You can watch it here, which you should before reading this interview, since it contains spoilers from the episode.So where did this show come from? In some ways, I was thinking of a version of this show all the way back on Six Feet Under. That had this beautiful magnetism of a family around the »

Meet Michael Zegen, the Charming New Guy on 'Girls'

10 February 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Michael Zegen, wearing seasonally appropriate cut-off gloves, sips a soy chai latte in the kind of busy café that would feel right at home on Girls. "I like to think I fit right into that world," Zegen say, smiling. That's fortunate, since as of last night he joined the hit HBO series as Joe, Hannah's charming coworker in GQ's advertorial department. Zegen's casting made headlines last spring, partially due to how closely timed it was to the exit of Christopher Abbot (who played Charlie), which led many to falsely brand him "the Charlie replacement, »
