Now That Baskets Is Over... What Was Baskets?

Now That Baskets Is Over... What Was Baskets?

Baskets, an FX show that ended Thursday night, is a program that, like many in the overcrowded prestige television space , I know only in passing. The ads for the most recent season—its final one—briefly plagued the subway station by my workplace: a melancholy Zach Galifianakis in clown makeup, gazing softly into the middle distance in a way that is meant to convey seriousness. I have never...

Nancy Grace Is Going to Fix Injustice

Nancy Grace Is Going to Fix Injustice

Murder TV just got baselessly outraged again! It’s been three long years since Nancy Grace regularly blessed our televisions with her crime yelling, but now she’s back. And this time, she’s going to fix our broken legal system once and for all.

Grace’s new Oxygen series is called Injustice, and unlike the standard true crime show, which typically traces a murder from the time investigators...

The Only Thing Everyone Can Agree on Is That Chernobyl (The Series) Ruled

The Only Thing Everyone Can Agree on Is That Chernobyl (The Series) Ruled

The world may be more divided than ever before—on political ideology, prospective NBA champions, Billie Eilish—but there’s one thing everyone can agree on: HBO’s miniseries Chernobyl was incredibly good. Fantastic, even. Variety reports that the critically acclaimed dramatization of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster is IMDb’s top-rated television series of all time.

Chernobyl currently...

All That Is Coming Back, But Can't Possibly Live Up to the Original

All That Is Coming Back, But Can't Possibly Live Up to the Original

Nineties nostalgia isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. A reboot of the classic sketch-comedy series All That is on the horizon, and Nickelodeon has unveiled the new cast.

Deadline reports that the series will air in June and stars a crop of young actors aged 12- to 15-years-old: Ryan Alessi, Reece Caddell, Kate Godfrey, Gabrielle Green, Nathan Janak, Lex Lumpkin, and Chinguun Sergelen.

Here’s...

How Does Ryan Murphy Find the Time for a Thousand Shows?

How Does Ryan Murphy Find the Time for a Thousand Shows?

Ryan Murphy, a man who has more ideas in his sleep, than I ever will in my waking hours, has 10 projects greenlit as part of his Netflix deal. I’m thrilled for Ryan Murphy, who is a beautiful bald genius with many good shows under his belt, but I am left wondering what device Murphy has in his possession that allows him to carve out the time required to come up with any ideas in the first...

Who Is Still Alive in Westeros?

Who Is Still Alive in Westeros?

HBO’s epic incest soap opera with the dragons and the ice zombies begins its swan song on Sunday. Many people have died, not enough people have fucked, and a handful of others are still alive, clinging to their leather garments with all their might, hoping to survive this dastardly game of thrones.

It is admittedly difficult to keep track of who is alive and who is dead and also who has had...

No One at SNL Knew What The View Was When Tina Fey Started Parodying It

No One at SNL Knew What The View Was When Tina Fey Started Parodying It

When The View premiered in 1997, the world had never really seen a show like it—radical, almost, in its simplicity. Barbara Walters’s aim in creating The View was to present an array of differing viewpoints from different women, in a casual, chatty setting that was unlike anything on television before. It wasn’t quite a hit in the beginning, but it shaped the way daytime television worked,...

Law and Order: SVU Will Remain the One Constant in All Our Lives 

Law and Order: SVU Will Remain the One Constant in All Our Lives 

The elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit will live to investigate especially heinous vicious felonies for at least another year.

The show will get a record breaking twenty-first season, which makes SVU the longest-running live-action series in television history. Sorry ‘bout it, original Law and Order and Gunsmoke, looks like your paltry little twenty seasons apiece are nothing now....

Netflix Is Rebooting The Baby-Sitters Club but You Should Read the Books Instead

Netflix Is Rebooting The Baby-Sitters Club but You Should Read the Books Instead

Based the beloved ‘80s and ‘90s novels written by Ann M. Martin, the live-action series will feature half-hour episodes of “five best friends in Stoneybrook, Connecticut” and “focus on the entrepreneurial girls’ ventures and friendships, maneuvering the launch and success of their business while staving off...

PEN15 Is a Beautiful Reminder of the Horrors of 7th Grade

PEN15 Is a Beautiful Reminder of the Horrors of 7th Grade

In an era where film executives are increasingly banking on millennial nostalgia and reboots, I was deeply skeptical of Pen15, Hulu’s new original series about middle school in the year 2000. I assumed its entire conceit would be wrapped up in its anachronisms; that the late ‘90s and early 2000s cultural signposts—dial-up cable modem, AIM, the hideous cargo pants and skirts stocked...

Peppa Pig Is Turning Your Child Into a Filthy Anglophile, Fake Accent and All

Peppa Pig Is Turning Your Child Into a Filthy Anglophile, Fake Accent and All

Becoming an insufferable Anglophile used to take years of experience. For myself, it required round the clock viewings of Bedknobs and Broomsticks, obsessing over the Spice Girls, reading Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging, going through a weird Oasis phase when I was 14, finding bootleg streams of Skins in high school, etc. Now, four-year-olds just watch a little Peppa Pig and start...

Networks Are Trying to Deal With Your Love for Binge-Watching

The Hollywood Reporter explores the head-scratching taking place in boardrooms around Hollywood as network executives try to figure out if releasing an entire television season at once is good or bad for...

They Look Great

They Look Great

VH1 just released the first 14 minutes of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season four, premiering this Friday, and I’m pleased to report that the budget is there.

Not the show’s budget—god, no. They’re still filming in that ceilingless workroom with the finest “brick” walls Jo-Ann Fabrics could furnish. I’m talking about the queens. They look great! Check out all their entrance looks below, plus...

What the New Stranger Things Trailer Might Tell Us About Season 3

Netflix released a teaser trailer for Season 3 of Stranger Things on Sunday, The Los Angeles Times reports, revealing the names of the episodes but like, not much else.

I haven’t watched all of Stranger Things, but I have watched some of Stranger Things. (I definitely saw all of the first season and one or two episodes of Season 2.) Here’s what I think is going to happen, based on that...

Gym TV Recap, Vol. 1: Desperately Seeking Narrative

RETRO FITNESS, BROOKLYN, NEW YORK—Hey, look! It’s tender moist chicken, perfect for dinner. I know this because the Philips smokeless grill informercial says it’s “tender moist chicken, perfect for dinner.” I wouldn’t know, personally. I’ve made meat like three or four times in my life. When people ask, I tell them I stopped eating meat for a few years because I felt very affected by Michael...

The Best Looks From This Week's RuPaul's Drag Race

The Best Looks From This Week's <i>RuPaul's Drag Race</i>

This was the week in which the queens were tested in their acting skills—the episode which, despite Michelle Visage's decree that "girl you are a drag queen, you are experienced in acting," inevitably ends up in a shitshow of epic proportions. And this season, the tragedies were literally Shakespearean, as Ru enlisted the queens to do camp takes on Macbeth (as "Macbitch," aka my new legal...

Remember that Lena Dunham episode from last week? It was the lowest rated of the season so far. Anyway, this week's episode, titled "Put A Ring On It," involves Cyrus' upcoming wedding and David's ongoing B613 takedown.
