The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Reddick v. Boseman

Turns out Julius is still around and he made his presence known one last time.

Or at least he tried to.

On The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 8, named partner Carl Reddick returns and an immediate power battle ensues between him and Adrian.

Right away it's obvious that Adrian does not like Carl. Or at the very least, they aren't exactly fond of one another.

His return feels a lot like Jonas Stern's in The Good Wife.

They both founded their firms, build up the clientele but eventually end up spending more time hardly working, rather than working hard.

That's for the other partners, the lesser partners.

Carl immediately criticizes how Adrian and Barbara have been running the firm. He doesn't like Diane's status as partner or the representation of Chumhum, despite the fact that it brought in $86 million.

This was his firm and it used to stand for more than making money.

'Nashville' Top Moments: Rest in Peace, Rayna

'Nashville' Top Moments: Rest in Peace, Rayna
Nashville laid Rayna Jaymes to rest in "I'll Fly Away," but her death came with unforeseen drama and consequences as Rayna failed to name a guardian of her girls and appoint a new leader to run Highway 65 Records. Her mark is not gone from this world, but she is. Also, not only did this prove to be the series' most devastating episode, it also showed how strong the rest of the cast is and gave hope that Nashville could go on without Connie Britton.

Nashville Season 5 Episode 10 Review: I'll Fly Away

Last week was Rayna's good bye; this week is everyone's good bye to her.

Her funeral was short and sweet, but it didn't even compare to her tribute at the Cma's.

If tears weren't streaming down your cheeks by the end of the hour, you just may be a robot.

On Nashville Season 5 Episode 10, everyone adjusts to life without Rayna.

First off, I had a really hard time watching Tandy grieve because where the hell has she been? Unlike Teddy, who has an excuse -- albeit not the greatest one -- for disappearing, Tandy doesn't. 

I know they will always be sisters but Tandy could have been there for Rayna and she wasn't. She showed up momentarily to try to stop her from marrying Deacon but that's it.

She was my north, my south, my east, my west, my working week, my Sunday rest, my noon, my midnight, my talk,

'Nashville' Recap: A Final Goodbye to Rayna James

'Nashville' Recap: A Final Goodbye to Rayna James
On this episode of Nashville, "I'll Fly Away," friends and family gather to pay their last respects to Rayna, Will has doubts about getting involved with Zach, Tandy worries about the future of Highway 65 and Deacon makes a big decision regarding Maddie's and Daphne's futures.

Rayna's dead, and her funeral is a modest, sparsely-attended affair -- just the usual suspects. Returning to town for the somber occasion are Rayna's sister, Tandy, and her ex-con, ex-husband Teddy Conrad. Deacon can barely get through the stellar poem "Funeral Blues" by Wh Auden (now ruined for me forever because of Deacon's grating twang.)

An S&A Recap of the Historic 67th Primetime Emmy Awards and a Look at Next Year's Possibilities

As I'm sure you've all heard by now (even if you didn't watch last night's live broadcast), Viola Davis made history, becoming the first black woman to win the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Incredible when you consider that this was the 67th edition of the aging institution. Some would say, better late than never; for others, it's about damn time! This comes after just 5 previous nominations for black actresses in that specific category - Debbie Allen, Alfre Woodard, Regina Taylor, Cicely Tyson, and Kerry Washington for "Fame," "St. Elsewhere," "I'll Fly Away," "Sweet Justice," and "Scandal"...

Guess how many black actors have won Emmys in major comedy categories.
This year's Emmy nominees in major comedy categories include Anthony Anderson in "Blackish," Don Cheadle in "House of Lies," Andre Braugher in "Brooklyn Nine Nine," Tituss Burgess in "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," Keegan-Michael Key in "Key & Peele," and Niecy Nash in "Getting On." If any three of them win, they will double the amount of black series cast members ever to win comedy Emmys.  Three black performers have won Emmys in lead and supporting comedy categories. The last African-American winner was Jackée (Harry) in 1987 for her supporting role as the saucy Sandra on "227." Before that, Robert Guillaume picked up a supporting actor Emmy for "Soap" in 1979 and a lead actor Emmy for its spinoff "Benson" in 1985. Isabel Sanford won for playing Louise "Weezy" Jefferson on "The Jeffersons" in 1981.  The guest actor comedy Emmys have a slightly better track record. Before Uzo Aduba picked up her guest actress trophy for "Orange is the New Black" last year,

Favorite TV show got canceled? Just think of these other lost gems from the '90s

Favorite TV show got canceled? Just think of these other lost gems from the '90s
Looks like a certain somebody's favorite TV show got canceled. "Hannibal" went for three seasons -- and may still get picked up by another network for new episodes. But that short run doesn't compare to the scant seasons some of these fantastic shows from the '90s lasted. Together, let's remember the softer side of Sam Waterston in "I'll Fly Away"; or MTV's catchy "Idiot Savants"; or perhaps the brilliance of kids' show "The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo"; or that perfect comedy storm in "Newsradio"; or VH1's fast-disappearing act of "The List." Below are some of our favorite '90s TV shows, somewhat lost to the winds of time. What do you remember watching back then?

Will SAG Awards champ Viola Davis be first African American to win Drama Actress at Emmys? (Poll)

Will SAG Awards champ Viola Davis be first African American to win Drama Actress at Emmys? (Poll)
Viola Davis became just the second African American to win Best TV Drama Actress at the SAG Awards, claiming the prize Sunday for her starring role in "How to Get Away with Murder." The first to break through the color barrier was Chandra Wilson, a featured player on "Grey's Anatomy," who won this award in 2006. (SAG does not differentiate between lead and supporting on the TV side). -Break- However, Wilson was unable to parlay this victory into an Emmy, despite four consecutive bids in the Supporting Actress category. She lost in 2005 and 2006 to Blythe Danner ("Huff"), in 2007 to co-star Katherine Heigl and in 2008 to Dianne Wiest ("In Treatment"). While four African American women have won that Emmy race -- Gail Fisher ("Mannix," 1970); Alfre Woodard ("Hill Street Blues," 1983), Madge Sinclair ("Gabriel's Fire," 1991) and Mary Alice ("I'll Fly Away,&quo..."'

Vulture Asks: What TV Show Do You Wish Were on DVD?
Good news for Wonder Years purists: The show is finally coming to DVD with its extensive soundtrack totally intact. The show's been on Netflix streaming for a while now, but with different music, which does detract from Kevin and Winnie's overall vibes. For a long time there, it seemed like Twy would never be rereleased — but that was the conventional thinking around China Beach and L.A. Law, and now those series are available, too.And yet there are still so very many shows yet to be released on DVD or on streaming. Where's the Civil Rights drama I'll Fly Away? That was a weird little treasure on the NBC lineup in 1991, and yet somehow the show has never been rereleased. Where are seasons two through seven of The Practice? That show was huge! Ed? People loved Ed. Sisters? Sela Ward won an Emmy on that show, and yet there is

8 of TV's bad sex scenes: The Inbetweeners, Friends, New Girl and more

Tonight in London, the very worst in sauciness, smut, and sexploitation will be celebrated at 2013's Literary Review Bad Sex in Fiction Awards.

Folk singer Woody Guthrie's debut novel House of Earth will face off against the likes of Susan Choi's My Education and Rupert Thomson's Secrecy for the dubious honour of being named the filthiest and most foul.

Each year, the awards seek to celebrate the "most egregious passage of sexual description" in a novel, so here at Digital Spy, we figured we'd get in on the act - and that's not an innuendo.

Here's a few of television's very worst sex scenes, to prove that when it comes to coitus, telly can do the awkward, the awe-inspring and the just-plain-awful as well as any piece of literature...

Talent show biopics: who should be next?

With the release of the Paul Potts movie and news that Susan Boyle will soon be immortalised on film too, here are the reality TV biopics we'd really like to see

The future of cinema is here, and it's got lots of films about TV talent show contestants in it. Following One Chance, the surprisingly well-received biopic of Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts, plans are now afoot to make a similar film about Susan Boyle.

This shouldn't come as a shock to anyone. After all, they're both stories about plucky down-on-their-luck everypeople who dared to dream and finally made it big. It's the same story as Rocky, or The Karate Kid, or 8 Mile, but with faux-operatic wailing and Amanda Holden instead of rap battles and Mr Miyagi. The stories of Potts and Boyle couldn't be any more cinematic if they tried.

So now the floodgates are open. The race

'The Newsroom's' Sam Waterston: Not reading reviews is 'a much nicer place to be'

Sam Waterston couldn't be happier to be in the hot seat in Season 2 of "The Newsroom."

As Atlantis Cable News chief Charlie Skinner on the Aaron Sorkin-created HBO drama series, the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor is among those playing witnesses being deposed about an alleged war crime labeled Operation Genoa, Acn's related story having been proven to be built on wrong information.

Sunday's (Aug. 25) new episode takes the internal probe to its peak ... and heads may roll, including Charlie's.

"Just you wait!," Waterston gleefully tells Zap2it. "The thing that's so amazing about what Aaron does is that most stories content themselves with tying one person to the tracks, then having the train bear down on them. But he's got so many irons in the fire, so many balls in the air, it's just astounding how he does this."

Not only is the result dramatically sound to Waterston,

Lone Star Cinema: Silkwood

When writer/director Nora Ephron died months ago, I was surprised to see Silkwood mentioned along the many other credits in her obits. Little did I know Ephron co-wrote the Oscar-nominated screenplay for this 1983 drama alongside Alice Arlen.  Then I found out via IMDb searching that the movie was filmed in Texas! Obviously, I had to move it up my Netflix queue.

Silkwood is based on the true story of the woman of the same name, Karen Silkwood, who was born in Longview and spent some time in Beaumont. When we meet her in the film, however, she's a gal in her mid-twenties, played by Meryl Streep, working at a nuclear facility in small-town Oklahoma. Karen lives with boyfriend Drew (Kurt Russell) and best friend Dolly (Cher), who both work in the plant as well.

There are many other recognizable faces in this movie. David Strathairn and Fred Ward (who

Or, perhaps, Carrie On Regardless. I linked to the SNL spoof in last week's notes, but it's worth bringing it up again, as this episode seemed to have borrowed its script.

CIA operative: "Carrie, don't do that crazy thing. And that's an order!"

Carrie: "I know what I'm doing!"

Saul: "etly] I think you should give her a chance."

Carrie: [snogs Brody]

Which Box Set Is Actually Worth Your Money?

Which Box Set Is Actually Worth Your Money?
Select box set reviews from The Associated Press:

Johnny Cash, "The Complete Columbia Album Collection" (Columbia/Legacy)

If you're under 40, you likely see Johnny Cash two ways – as the nearly mythological Sun Records proto-rocker and as the wizened old man staring down God in his American Recordings period in the years before his 2003 death.

Between those two important periods lay decades of songs, personalities and re-inventions many folks aren't familiar with. The massive new box set, "The Complete Columbia Album Collection," will help fill in those gaps for anyone interested in Cash beyond the name-checking cachet he brings to your iPod.

A staggering amount of music is gathered here in 63 discs representing a quarter century of output from an American popular culture icon whose career was far more Technicolor than his Man in Black nickname suggests. And the average music fan yet to turn grey has no idea what that

The CIA Listens In on a Double Agent's Dirty Weekend In 'Homeland'
This article contains spoilers for "I'll Fly Away," the Nov. 18 episode of "Homeland." By definition, double agents are always faking loyalty to somebody, and working with one is bound to leave you wondering if that somebody might be you. Caught between two forces that are only interested in using him as a tool, Brody (Damian Lewis) isn't given and doesn't engender trust, which leaves his ultimate direction very much up in the air. So far he's been playing along with the CIA with apparent sincerity in his new role of informant, nudged along by Carrie (Claire Danes), by general exhaustion and by the promise that his family will never find out what his original intentions were when he first returned to the U.S. But he's certainly not spurred on by any renewed affection for his country -- his only ties are to the wife and children drifting slowly away from him (though,

Michael Hogan: 'Homeland' Recap: Brody & Carrie Make Sex Noises
Note: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Season 2, Episode 8 of Showtime's "Homeland," titled "I'll Fly Away."

This week's episode of "Homeland" takes its name from an old Christian spiritual called "I'll Fly Away."

Just a few more weary days and then,

I'll fly away;

To a land where joy shall never end,

I'll fly away

Are the writers signaling to us that Nicholas Brody's days are numbered? It doesn't seem possible that Showtime would give Damian Lewis the Sean Bean treatment -- not when he's doing such a bang-up job in those corny ads where everyone falls all over themselves in slow motion. But clearly, the countdown to Abu Nazir's big attack is under way. It's so close that Nazir himself is in town -- but now I'm getting ahead of myself.

Like it or not, we start this episode with sad guilty Dana, who is literally riding the "Blue Route.
