Thursday TV: Rectify Finale, Simpsons Marathon

Rectify

The upcoming fall season will be lucky to generate even a fraction as many hits as this unusually busy TV summer produced, a list of keepers that includes Outlander, The Strain, The Knick, The Last Ship, Undateable, to name just a few. (Even something as underwhelming as AMC's Halt and Catch Fire, which didn't, has been renewed by its increasingly desperate network, and I'm hoping for good news about the future of WGN America's Manhattan and WE's The Divide.)

From Masters of Sex to Boardwalk Empire: How Accurate Are Fact-Based Dramas?

Lizzy Caplan, Steve Buscemi

Halfway through the pilot episode of the Showtime series Masters of Sex, which is based on the story of real-life sex researchers Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson, Masters leaves his wife, Libby, in the care of another doctor as she undergoes infertility treatments so he can slip into a neighboring examination room and watch a prostitute masturbate... It's an amazingly rich six minutes of television that manages not only to set up most of the first season's major plotlines and underlying emotional tensions, but also to explain the story's historical import. In a strictly factual sense, it's also mostly made up.

Inside Peter Capaldi's Wild First Season of Doctor Who

Peter Capaldi

Peter Capaldi remembers the car that came to his London home last August to drive him to the live TV special that revealed him to be Doctor Who's newest star. Because it only took him to a parking lot. "Like in a cheap British spy movie, I was dropped off and told to wait for another car to pick me up," says the actor, whose first full episode in the title role is the Season 8 premiere, airing August 23. "Then I was put in the backseat, covered in a blanket, and taken away to become the Doctor. This is a true story."

Here's the thing about Doctor Who: Its hero is a time-traveling alien (species: Time Lord) who periodically regenerates into a whole new being. Many actors have portrayed the "numbered" Docs — First... read more

But this year, as the star of the highly anticipated adaptation of the cult comic book hit Hellblazer, he was under a much brighter spotlight.
