Matt's Weekend Picks: March 25-27

Anna Torv

Fringe (Friday, 9/8c, Fox)
This entire season has been a tour de force for Anna Torv. Doing double duty as dueling Olivias from parallel warring universes, she most recently spent an episode channeling her inner Spock — aka Leonard Nimoy — as the ghostly soul of William Bell inhabited her body for a very clever outing. (In the climax, the dormant Olivia resurfaced briefly, freaking out Peter and the viewing audience.) This week, we're back in alt-world, as the pregnant Alt-livia faces mortal danger from several fronts. It's a very harrowing hour, deserving a far larger audience than it's likely to get, tucked away on Fridays. Fox, stand by this show!

Roush Review: Being Human and More Weekend TV

Being Human

A few nights ago, when Modern Family's Cameron-as-Fizbo tried on a court jester's shtick for size, Mitchell offered this dour rejoinder: "There goes the theory that an English accent makes everyone sound smart." I don't think it's Anglophile snobbery that has me celebrating the return of Being Human to BBC America's lineup Saturday night, while being left as cold as a cadaver by Syfy's spotty remake. The original is simply a much better show.

Better acted, for sure, and it's not just a matter of dialect. There's an intensity to the British original, even when it's going for droll humor, that's lacking in the shrill and... read more
