'Episodes' Renewed For Season 4 Ahead Of Season 3 Premiere
Whether or not Pucks! ever manages to reach a fourth season remains to be seen, but Episodes is guaranteed to get there. Showtime announced today that they’ve given the meta series an order for a full fourth season. This news comes just weeks ahead of the series’ third season debut after more than a year on hiatus.
AFI Awards Honor Breaking Bad, Masters of Sex, Veep, And More As Best Of 2013
The American Film Institute’s official selections for the 2013 AFI Awards have been announced, and the television selection proves that 2013 was a truly stellar year for the small screen. The list, which includes 10 of the year’s most outstanding television series as well as 10 equally-as-impressive movies, was selected by a panel of highly impressive judges.
Californication Will End After Season 7
On Monday, Showtime announced that doors will be closing for the network’s long-running program, Californication. The cancellation is not effective immediately. Way back in January, Showtime announced the series would be returning for a seventh season, earning a renewal order alongside House of Lies and Shameless. Now, it turns out Season 7 will actually prove to be the drama’s final 12 episodes.
Homeland Season 3, Episode 11 Watch: Never Trust A Crystal Ashtray
With the stakes reflected literally and figuratively in the mirror (and just like that: baby’s got bump), Carrie and Brody’s motivations were murky going into Homeland's penultimate episode. What’s Carrie’s hang-up about her impending Brody-baby? Would our ginger-terrorist-that-could kill General Akbari? Were both willing to go the distance for one another? Would anybody actually just do what he or she was told for once? And what, good lord, would be Saul’s motivation this week?
Shameless Season 4 Poster Shows The Gallaghers Looking All Fired Up
Ok, who got the Gallaghers all fired up? Knowing what we do about the upcoming fourth season of the underrated Showtime drama, it’s more a “what” than a “who” per se for these Shameless characters. But the new poster for Season 4 teases a united front as the Gallaghers look as though they’re roaring for a revolution. And as the tagline says, “This ain’t no tea party.”
House Of Lies Lets The Gunfire Fly In New Teaser Image And Video
Showtime's management consultant-focused dramedy House of Lies is set to return to the airwaves in early 2014. In preparation, the network has unveiled a new teaser trailer as well as promotional image that playfully pokes fun at the on and off-screen shenanigans that have plagued the once-almighty pod. But as we learned at the end of season two, complications are inevitable, and things are about to get down and dirty dirty between Marty Kaan and his protégé Jeannie Van Der Hooven.
Homeland Season 3, Episode 10 Watch: Reading Way Too Much Into Word Choice
Sunday night’s episode of ‘Homeland,’ the ominously-titled “Good Night” was another instance of the Showtime program leaving us with more questions than answers. And, frankly, we’re starting to think that they might just be playing us. After the credits rolled we couldn’t help but wonder: is Brody going to survive? Is this all a smokescreen of an entirely different color? We’ve decided to suss out our suspicions the only way we know how: by over-thinking word choice to death.
Homeland Season 3, Episode 9 Watch: Hit Me Brody One Last Time
Brody may be back in the pocket of the CIA on Homeland, trying to right the wrongs he’s done over the past three seasons, but he’s still just a pawn. A junkie shell of his former self. If you ask me, Brody’s trajectory feels more in line with a modern-day pop star than a terrorist. In the immortal words of a one miss Britney Jean Spears (oh yes, we’re going there): Hit me baby, one more time. Or, if you're episode nine of the Showtime series, "One Last Time."
'Episodes' Preview Teases Pucks Problems And A New Boss For Carol
When a show goes more than a year between seasons, we begin to wonder if that series is still on or if it was cancelled. This seems especially true for cable television, which is where it tends to happen more often than with network TV. Such is the case for Episodes, which believe it or not, isn’t cancelled. The Showtime comedy hasn’t really settled on what time of year it wants to air.
Homeland Recap: Season 3, Episode 7 - 'Gerontion' Gives History a Face
Sunday night's episode of Homeland may be easy to poo-poo after the explosive doings of "Still Positive." But it is in the nuanced language of episode seven, "Gerontion" (named after the T.S. Eliot poem, perhaps?) that Homeland shines as bright as it has before. Honestly, this might be my favorite episode of the season to date, because the drama is ALL in the words both said and unsaid. And it is Saul, and history, that take center stage in the increasingly murky waters of CIA drama.
Homeland Recap: Chris Brody is Totally Going to Blow Something Up
I’m fairly convinced — thanks to Sunday night's episode of 'Homeland,' titled "Still Positive," — that Chris Brody is the real story on Showtime's CIA-frenzy drama. While some may argue that we're watching a story about a brilliant CIA agent and the American terrorist she loved, I'm more inclined to believe that we’re actually watching the origin story of a future terrorist/serial murderperson, Chris Brody, and how he came to be as such.
Sesame Street Parodies Homeland With Homelamb
Sesame Street has a little something for everyone, including the Homeland fan. While the Showtime terrorism-focused drama might not seem like a good fit for a children’s program, Sesame Street knows how to tone down a plot and play up whatever humor might be mined from even the most serious of subjects for the sake of their young audience
Dexter Headed To Netflix Streaming Just In Time For Halloween
Still debating whether or not to shell out hundreds of dollars to purchase the Dexter: The Complete Series Collection Blu-ray set? Well, hang onto your wallets, as there’s a far more affordable way to binge-watch all eight seasons of Showtime’s serial killer drama, thanks to Netflix. The first four seasons of the series are set to arrive on Netflix streaming later this week, while the other four seasons will be made available in January.
Masters of Sex Watch: Episode 5 - Catherine
Masters of Sex regains some of its footing, but goes for the big emotional moment without enough build up for the audience. Libby has been regulated from, “give me a baby” to the matchmaker to daughter-in-law and now the show has taken the baby away. The loss of baby Masters was clearly designed to be the emotional centerpiece of the season so far, but the inconsistency with Libby’s characterization and the speed at which they get to the loss of the baby reduced any impact the show could of had for the moment.
