Thursday Review: SundanceTV's The Honorable Woman and Rectify

If SundanceTV's The Honorable Woman were any timelier in its geopolitical drama, most specifically of the Israeli-Palestinian variety, it would bleed newsprint. But it's the emotional intricacies of this rewardingly complex and brilliantly acted eight-part miniseries (Thursdays, 10/9c) that resonate timelessly, grounded by Maggie Gyllenhaal's impassioned, extraordinary performance as the title character, idealistic Anglo-Israeli philanthropist and newly appointed Baroness Nessa Stein.

Gyllenhaal brings layers upon layers of crisp elegance, prideful steel, profound sorrow and ultimately an aching vulnerability to Nessa. We share her angry despair as her lofty goals — most notably, wiring the West Bank in a lucrative but controversial contract for high-speed Internet as part of her family foundation's crusade for reconciliation — are steadily shattered by shady compromises and sinister secrets stemming from her mysterious abduction in Gaza eight years earlier.

Starz's The White Queen Puts a Sexy, Feminist Spin on England's Wars of the Roses

Prepare for the real game of thrones. Many films and TV series have taken on Henry VIII and the Tudors, but shockingly little has been done on the English dynasty that preceded them: the magnificently brutal Plantagenets. That's odd, considering that the Plantagenets, who battled one another for 30 years in the calamitous Wars of the Roses, did just as much roaring and whoring as the Tudors did — and were way more dangerous and dysfunctional.

Starz plans to rectify this royal oversight with The White Queen, a sweeping, sexually ...

Question: Thanks for your intelligent and frankly hilarious reviews! I especially love that you highlight lesser known but completely fantastic gems on networks like PBS! I'm thrilled the days of sub-par, toast-dry programming on PBS seem to be slowly going the way of the Titanic. Query: Are my Brit-Geek friends and I the only ones this side of the pond absolutely chomping at the bit for the month of May and the return of BBC's Sherlock on PBS' Masterpiece Mystery? Obviously, I'm biased, but ... read more
