Weekend Playlist: Last Tango in Halifax, Boardwalk Empire Join Sunday Crush

Last Tango in Halifax

Anyone seeking momentary relief from the dazzling darkness of the anti-hero vogue so prevalent on Sunday nights — epitomized by Breaking Bad's harrowing race to the finish line — will find a delightful tonic in PBS's Last Tango in Halifax (Sunday, check tvguide.com listings), a winning romance about two widowed seventysomethings and their supportive but screwed-up families.

Not a meth dealer (Bad), serial killer (Dexter), bootlegger (Boardwalk Empire) or brooding bully of a fixer (Ray Donovan) in sight, but life is still not without its complications in Halifax, a six-part charmer blessed with instant chemistry between the esteemed Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid (from the recent Upstairs, Downstairs remake) as Alan and Celia, lonely pensioners and former childhood pals who reconnect on Facebook after 60 years and impulsively decide to take a second chance on love.

Top Moments: Bill Murray Bedazzles on Late Show, and Breaking Bad Gets Fired Up

Bill Murray and David Letterman

Our top moments of the week:

13. Biggest Disappointment: In the midst of a lackluster final season, Dexter reveals that the identity of the season-long villain, The Brain Surgeon, is Vogel's son ... whom no one cares about. This is almost as bad as when we learned that Edward James Olmos was a figment of Colin Hanks' imagination in Season 6. Anticlimactic much?

12. Sauciest Critique: Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson never fails to brighten the So You Think You Can Dance judges' panel with his cheeky wit and genuine fanboy fawning. In his latest visit, he vows to... read more

Top Moments: True Blood Sunbathes in the Nude and Breaking Bad Slaps It Out

Alexander Skarsgard

Our top moments of the week:

13. Better Late Than Never Award: Pretty Little Liars' penultimate episode not only reveals Red Coat to be CeCe Drake (OK, not a shocker there), but a mysterious young guy named Travis tells Hanna that he was there the night of Wilden's murder and knows it wasn't Ashley Marin. Although he's reluctant to tell the police what he saw due to "bad blood," he goes down to the station in the final moments. Will Hanna's mom finally go free? Or does A have a plan to keep her locked up?

12. Worst Edit Job: For weeks now on... read more

When will Marshall tell Lily about his judgeship on How I Met Your Mother? Please don't tell me it'll take the whole wedding weekend/season. — Mary
ADAM:
 Marshall's secret will be part of the "dirty laundry" that executive producer Carter Bays promises will "come exploding out" during the wedding weekend like last year's meatball sub. But naturally, it won't be Marshall who spills the beans.

Top Moments: Breaking Bad Treads Lightly and Dexter's Deadly Return

Our top moments of the week:

13. Best Sequel: In case you haven't seen Bar Mitzvah boy Sam Horowitz's amazing YouTube video, or for those who simply can't get enough, Good Morning America invites Horowitz to perform in Times Square. Billed as his "Broadway debut," Horowitz once again brings the goods and does a fine job breaking in the parquet laid down especially for him. The most adorable thing? Horowitz can be heard panting, trying to catch his breath as Josh Elliott interviews his mom.

12. Best Curveball: While serving as the bartender of the evening on... read more

Showtime Boss: "Of Course" a Dexter Spin-Off Is Possible

Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall

Not ready to say goodbye to Dexter? Then get ready to overreact to this news.

After revealing that Showtime had signed a "rare" two-year overall deal with Dexter showrunner Scott Buck, network president David Nevins was asked whether a spin-off series was still being considered.

Get all the latest TCA news

"Of course," Nevins told reporters at the Television Critics Association fall previews Tuesday. "We announced a deal with Scott Buck today. Draw your own conclusions."

Pressed for details after the panel, Nevins clarified that nothing is actively in the works and that no deals with cast members have been extended. (The Hollywood Reporter previously reported rumblings of a spin-off centered on Jennifer Carpenter's Debra.) "We have a deal with Scott and we're going to develop a bunch of different things with him," he said. "All options will be explored. We're really not dealing with it at all until we're through this season and maybe for a while thereafter. It's all about the satisfying ending to the show."
