Hugh Dancy To Investigate Killers, Try Not To Fall In Love With Them, In Law & Order Revival

How is Hugh Dancy supposed to solve homicides without his murder husband? According to Deadline, Dancy -- who played FBI consultant Will Graham in the NBC series "Hannibal," opposite Mads Mikkelsen's titular cannibal -- has been tapped to star in the "Law & Order" revival, which is also happening at NBC. Here's hoping that his character in the long-running procedural is better at catching criminals than catching feelings for them.It's been a decade since "Law & Order" went off the air, ending wi...

‘On the Basis of Sex’ Review: A Competent Case for Ruth Bader Ginsburg the Icon, But Not the Human Being

There’s a scene in almost every teen TV drama where the teacher describes the theme of the episode that will come to pass over the next 45 minutes. The majority of On the Basis of Sex is like that. The Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic stars Felicity Jones as the trailblazing lawyer who later becomes one of our foremost Supreme Court justices and only the second female Supreme Court justice in history. But On the Basis of Sex focuses on Ginsburg’s first landmark case that launched her career as the pr...

What to watch: Christ’s Tomb, Christmas lights, Carol Burnett and ‘Godless’

Catch up on Godless: (Available on Netflix) As I said in my review, this is the Western you’ve been waiting for. The seven-part limited series opens with a striking tableau of an entire town wiped out, and then followed by a country doctor being woken in the dead of night by outlaws. Their leader’s arm is hanging by a thread. Better get to it, Jeff Daniels’ Frank Griffin casually tells the frightened doc when he hears there is no anesthesia. Frank’s no ordinary bad guy, “Godless” no ordinary Wes...

Shakespeare, Sinatra, and the Philosophy of Aging [excerpt]

 Aging in the world of entertainment is portrayed in a variety of ways. In some cases it’s graceful and elegant; in others it’s manic and doddering. Shakespeare has dealt with this subject numerous times with vast reinterpretations in productions through the centuries. In this excerpt from Aging Thoughtfully: Conversations about Retirement, Wrinkles, Romance, and Regret, authors Martha C. Nussbaum and Saul Levmore look at the classic example of King Lear, and how different portrayals of this eld...

How Well Do Your Favorite Shows Capture Real Life In NYC?

Unless you’ve lived in New York City, your idea of life in the Big Apple likely stems from watching TV, and it’s almost certainly wrong. Or, maybe “incomplete” is the better word. That’s because for all the series that have been set in NYC — goofy sitcoms, gritty cop dramas, reality shows where Heidi Klum and Donald Trump gleefully crush people’s dreams — no single one gets it quite right. But, some fare better than others. Most recently, HBO's drama The Deuce, set in '70s-era Times Square, cap...

This documentary, directed by Ema Ryan Yamazaki and narrated by Sam Waterston, tells of how this couple of German Jews (and their manuscript!) living in Paris narrowly escaped the Nazis to bring their charming little monkey to children all over the world.
