The Waltons' Homecoming: Did CW Movie Remake Evoke Enough Charm?

The Waltons' Homecoming: Did CW Movie Remake Evoke Enough Charm?
The CW this Sunday night commemorated the 50th anniversary of The Homecoming: A Christmas Story — the 1971 TV-movie that wound up siring The Waltons — with a remake. But did it evoke enough folksy charm?

As with the source material, and set in 1933, The CW’s The Waltons’ Homecoming found the titular family readying for Christmas but also waiting… and waiting… for patriarch John Sr. (played by Ben Lawson) to come home for the holiday from his far-away job. (John’s already long bus ride was further slowed by a brewing snow storm, and is eventually derailed when the bus skids off an icy road.

Insecure's Leonard Robinson Breaks Down That Molly and Taurean 'Ship, Says Black Twitter Was Right

Insecure's Leonard Robinson Breaks Down That Molly and Taurean 'Ship, Says Black Twitter Was Right
Leonard Robinson has a warm and inviting smile, but that’s something fans of Insecure haven’t been able to see, because his character Taurean is always scowling.

This changed during Sunday night’s installment of the HBO comedy after Taurean finally warmed up to Molly (Yvonne Orji) during a work retreat. Molly, who woke up with a slight hangover and worries that she’d slept with her coworker, learned they hadn’t gotten that intimate, but she did have to give back Taurean his watch.

Fear the Walking Dead Recap: At Last, [Spoiler]'s Fate Is Revealed

Fear the Walking Dead Recap: At Last, [Spoiler]'s Fate Is Revealed
The bulk of Sunday’s eventful Fear the Walking Dead swirled around Strand, his head growing heavier and heavier as it wore the crown. But not even the shocker at the climax of his part of the hour could compete with the moment that viewers had been waiting and waiting for: Alicia’s return — and Alycia Debnam-Carey’s first appearance since Season 6.

In Strand’s leg of “The Portrait,” though he turned away pretty much everyone who sought refuge at the tower — even folks that Howard noted might have been of use — he allowed in Morgan, if only to let

Succession's Sarah Snook on Filming Shiv's Wild Dancing Scene: 'Someone Said, 'You've Just Become a Gif''
Ladies and gentleman, we may have just witnessed the most iconically awkward TV dance since Elaine Benes.

This week on Succession, Kendall threw himself a ridiculously over-the-top birthday party, and his sister Shiv — who’s been repeatedly knocked down the corporate ladder by her dad Logan in recent weeks — decided to let off a little steam by having a drink and hitting the dance floor. Joining a bunch of strangers, she took off her shoes and thrashed her body around in a wild display. “She’s just getting the demons out, I guess,” Greg observed, and Roman later teased her,

Dexter Recap: Like Father, Like Son
Despite the fact that Dexter has officially squared away his dead-body bind, Sunday’s episode of Dexter: New Blood confirmed that the sometimes-killer’s problems have only just begun.

While Kurt’s boldfaced lie about FaceTiming with his (dead) son Matt remains perplexing, Episode 4 puts its primary focus on Harrison, as a scuffle at school may have prevented a deadly school shooting from going down. As many Iron Lake residents are quick to proclaim Harrison a hero, Dexter starts digging, only to discover that things definitely aren’t as they appear. Also, who is seen leading yet another young woman

In Sunday’s episode of Dexter: New Blood, Dexter’s greatest fear may have become reality.

While Harrison was being hailed as the savior of his high school for thwarting a potential shooting, Dexter’s suspicions over his son’s story led him down an unsettling rabbit hole. With the help of police photos and crime-scene spatter, Dexter deduced that Harrison was actually the instigator of the conflict, and later found what he believed to be the real weapon used on the teen’s classmate, Ethan: a straight razor — the same blade used by the Trinity Killer when he sliced

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not watched the seventh episode of “Succession” Season 3, titled “Too Much Birthday.”

An easy, comically tall target for jokes at his expense, Greg doesn’t get to celebrate many victories in “Succession,” but at Kendall’s 40th birthday party, he finally notches a win and asks out Comfry, Kendall’s PR consultant. With so many failed or strained relationships on the show — just look at Tom and Shiv, Kendall and Rava, Connor and Willa, Roman and Gerri — Greg and Comfry could be the start of a new power couple.

Why the Beatles’ ‘Get Back’ May Stand as the Best Rock Doc Ever (Column)
A moment of silence, please, for “This Is Spinal Tap,” as that satire formally abdicates its title as the best and truest movie ever made about what it’s like to be in a rock ‘n’ roll band. There was something wonderful, silly and sad about how, up until now, musicians had to look to the fabricated saga of an unabashedly terrible group to be able to say, “Yes, this is our story.” Heaven knows there’ve been other fictional tales that tried to pull off that same kind of Everyband story while treating rock with a modicum of dignity,

‘True Story’: 3 Reasons to Binge the Kevin Hart Netflix Drama

‘True Story’: 3 Reasons to Binge the Kevin Hart Netflix Drama
Comedian Kevin Hart gets serious in the seven-part nail-biter, True Story, about an actor and comic known as the Kid who spirals out of control following a wayward evening with a one-night stand. Here’s what’ll have you hooked. 1. The moral dilemma How far would you go to protect the life you’ve built? That question looms over the tense action as the Kid takes increasingly desperate (and shocking) steps to cover his tracks. (Credit: Netflix) 2. A stellar supporting cast Wesley Snipes oozes sleaze as the Kid’s ne’er-do-well older brother Carlton, who can’t help but make the situation worse, and a nearly unrecognizable Billy Zane proves menacing as a shady “fixer” who says he can make the problem disappear. 3. The fast-paced storytelling Aside from the premiere, each thrilling episode clocks in at around 30 minutes, making it even more tempting to say, “I’ll watch just one more” before bed.
