Critic's Guide to Monday TV: The New Normal, Crimson Petal, Katie Joins Daytime

My Two Dads was never like this. Which is partly the point of NBC's The New Normal, a biting yet sweet-at-heart sitcom that bucks current network comedy trends by actually being about something — in this case, a hot-button social issue so polarizing to some that at least one affiliate (in Salt Lake City) opted not to air the ...

Roush Review: Pillars Revives the Old-Fashioned Epic

They really don't make them like this anymore. And we're not talking about 12th-century Gothic cathedrals. The Pillars of the Earth, a sprawling historical melodrama based on Ken Follett's mammoth bestseller, conjures nostalgic memories of the days of yore, way back in the 20th century, when networks devoted entire weeks to "event" miniseries like Shogun, The Winds of War, The Thorn Birds, Lonesome Dove, to name a memorable few—although in this case, North and South is the best comparison... read more

Watched Any Good Books Lately?

Much like getting hooked on a TV show, it’s easy to become addicted to a favorite author. They don’t come much more different than Wild West chronicler Larry McMurtry and the 19th century’s droll Jane Austen, each returning to TV this week. McMurtry’s epic Western Lonesome Dove ranks among the all-time greatest TV miniseries, but with the six-hour prequel Comanche Moon, he and CBS have dipped into this mythic well once too often. Perilously poky and sometimes just plain hokey, this sloppy and scattershot yarn finds Gus and Woodrow, the Dove characters immortalized in their twilight years by Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones, as young and restless Texas Rangers. Steve Zahn is scrappy fun as gabby Gus, but Karl Urban is a dud as the sullen, scowling Woodrow. Through most of the meandering story, our heroes bicker, banter and woo the womenfolk they will ultimately disappoint. Meanwhile, they track clichéd foes: murderous, horse- read more

The cast includes Val Kilmer, Rachel Griffiths, ER's Linda Cardellini, Scrubs' Elizabeth Banks, the ubiquitous Wes Studi and pretty much everyone who's ever tried on a Stetson (except for Larry Hagman). — Ben Katner read more

Premise: A sprawling, highly rated four-part paean to the Old West about two former Texas Rangers as they lead a cattle drive to Montana in the late 19th century. Based on Larry McMurtry's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, the $20 million star-laden miniseries garnered seven Emmys (including one for director Simon Wincer) and a Peabody Award; and inspired an impressive sequel miniseries, `Return to Lonesome Dove,' in 1993, and a weekly series a year later.
