5 Reasons You Should Be Watching HBO's Getting On

Laurie Metcalf, Niecy Nash, Alex Borstein

HBO's Getting On is the best show on TV you're not watching.

Adapted from the British series of the same name by Big Love co-creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer, the comedy stars Laurie Metcalf(Roseanne), Alex Borstein (MadTV, Family Guy) and Niecy Nash (Reno 911) as members of the medical staff at a geriatric extended care ward of fictitious Southern California hospital — a place where senior citizens go to die and the people who work there aren't sure what they're living for.

Sure, that doesn't sound like a recipe for gut-busting laughter, which may be why HBO debuted the six-episode first season at the end of 2013 with little to no fanfare. "They didn't tell anyone that it was on!" Borstein tells TVGuide.com.... read more

Did The Newsroom Save Its Best Season for Last?

Jeff Daniels, Sam Waterston

Given the anticipatory hype that preceded the 2012 debut of HBO's The Newsroom, it would have been hard to predict that the Aaron Sorkindrama would end the way it is — with a truncated third and final season that begins Sunday.

After two up-and-down years — the first season was met with decidedly harsh reviews, while the second was received more warmly despite some persisting flaws —and a very tidy Season 2 finale, it seemed Sorkin might be ready to just move on to something else. But after negotiating with HBO and bringing The Office's Paul Lieberstein on board, Sorkin & Co. decided they weren't quite finished... read more

What can you tell me about the Castle wedding? I can't wait! — Jenna
Owing to the complex story that precedes the nuptials — Castle experiences an alternate reality in which he's never met Beckett — the ceremony itself had to be scaled back considerably. "We came very close to doing the other version of the big wedding... and all the hoopla that's associated with that, and we knew that we didn't want to do quite the same thing," executive producer David Amann tells us. However, don't think that Castle's rush to the altar will scare Beckett — or make the moment any less magical. "[Beckett] doesn't necessarily know quite what has driven him to this point, but she's emotionally right there with him," Amann says. "It's a wonderful, wonderful moment, and we hope the fans share that view."

Can you give me any details on the 100th episode of Hawaii Five-0? — Brandon
As promised, the episode, which offers a glimpse of what McGarrett's life could have been without Five-0, (finally) gives some concrete answers about exactly how Wo Fat is connected to McGarrett and his mother.... read more

Exclusive Bones Sneak Peek: Brennan's Rival Returns!

Bones

So much for "friendly" competition.

On Thursday's Bones (8/7, Fox), Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is asked to give the keynote speech at a forensic science convention, so she brings Cam (Tamara Taylor), Angela (Michaela Conlin) and Hodgins (TJ Thyne) along with her.

Got any new Bones scoop? — Heather
Those of you hankering for another Bones wedding might want to keep those expectations in check. Although the subject of a marriage between Cam and Arastoo comes up again in the Nov. 6 episode, one member of the couple isn't exactly ready for a new level of commitment. Worse, that fight spills into the Jeffersonian when Arastoo's dissertation proposal is rejected by Dr. Brennan and Cam tries to change Brennan's mind. Unfortunately for Cam, she'll quickly learn that opening her mouth has only made things worse between her and Arastoo.

Boardwalk Empire's Series Finale: How Did It All End?

Steve Buscemi

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from Sunday's series finale of HBO's Boardwalk Empire. Read at your own risk.]

After five beautifully crafted seasons, the lights finally went out on HBO's Boardwalk Empire Sunday night. And as promised by creator and executive producer Terence Winter, who worked with the team that crafted the maddening and still-debated ending of The Sopranos, there was nothing ambiguous about it.

The show arguably reached its emotional climax in the penultimate episode, when Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) agreed to give up his Atlantic City empire to New York rival Charlie Luciano (Vincent Piazza) in order to save his nephew Willie. As such, the finale became a flashback-heavy exploration of Nucky's soul as he tied up loose ends with his brother Eli (Shea Whigam) and made plans to move to New York and live quietly, thanks to the cool $2 million he made manipulating the stock market with his former wife Margaret (Kelly Macdonald).

The Walking Dead's Rick Grimes is a man of his word.

On Sunday's episode, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest of the group learned that Gareth (Andrew J. West) and the remaining survivors of Terminus were still nearby when the Terminans returned Bob (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) — minus most of his left leg — to Father Gabriel's church. Rick quickly assembled a search party to hunt for The Hunters, but as soon as they left the church, Gareth & Co. came calling.
