Weekend Review: The Walking Dead, Beatles Tribute, PBS' Lady

Chandler Riggs

Things have gotten so bleak on AMC's The Walking Dead that it's not always easy to tell the walking wounded from the actual zombies. Which is part of the point as the fourth season resumes with the beleaguered survivors of the prison battle scattered to the winds — so much so that in this week's episode (Sunday, 9/8c), written by Robert Kirkman ... read more

Weekend TV Review: PBS's Sherlock, HBO's Looking, Ick Factor in Flowers

Benedict Cumberbatch

Three episodes are never enough to satisfy our appetite for the dazzling BBC/Masterpiece Mystery! version of Sherlock, which thanks to its stars' busy movie careers, made us wait two long years for the latest trilogy of 90-minute delights. Was it worth the wait? The answer is (to borrow the title of TV's other enjoyable contemporary Holmes series) elementary: Did you ever doubt it?

"You love it, being Sherlock Holmes," reaffirms the long-suffering Dr. John Watson (the delightful Martin Freeman) to his exasperating mate (an electrifying Benedict Cumberbatch), who returns to the spotlight in Sunday's playfully... read more

BBC America's Being Human Returns With Major Cast Changes

Being Human

BBC America's Being Human — the beguiling original version of the vampire/werewolf/ghost roommate supernatural drama — is back on Saturday. But it's not the same old. Tortured bloodsucker Mitchell (Aidan Turner) is gone staked by his wolfman buddy George (Russell Tovey) in last season's shocking finale. And there is more shakeup and tragedy to come.

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

More scheming, brawling and tragic treachery afoot in the pivotal fifth hour of this sprawling historical melodrama, as Waleran (Ian McShane) plays political games to further his goal to become Archbishop of Canterbury. Meanwhile, as the town of Kingsbridge prepares for another attack, the conflict between sort-of-brothers Jack and Alfred leads to ruin... read more
