'The Good Wife' or 'Parenthood': Which will you watch tonight?

It’s Tuesday, which means a 10 p.m. dilemma: Which excellent drama do you watch, The Good Wife or Parenthood?

Both are having solid seasons. Right now, I’d give the edge to The Good Wife, which has really been sparking on all levels. I think we can all agree that READ FULL STORY

Is tonight's new PBS 'Sherlock' one of the best Sherlock Holmes ever?

This week’s Masterpiece Mystery! begins a three-week run of Sherlock, a clever re-imagining of Sherlock Holmes in the 21st century. One thing that marks this production off from previous adaptations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s work — that is, aside from the fact that this Sherlock has a website and texts furiously — is that it forces the Holmes cult to overlap with another venerable British cult: the one for Doctor Who.

Benedict Cumberbatch, from Atonement, stars as a jittery Holmes who’s more addicted to e-mail and his nicotine patch than to the traditional snoot-full of cocaine. His Watson is an Afghanistan war veteran played by Martin Freeman, who just READ FULL STORY

'Rubicon' season finale tonight: The conspiracy will be revealed, but will you be watching?

Rubicon wraps up its first season tonight, doomed to be overshadowed by the season finale of its AMC neighbor, Mad Men. Which is too bad, because Rubicon became, after a meandering start, a crackerjack thriller.

Last week’s terrorist attack on an oil tanker in Galveston Bay, Texas, was one of those just-this-shy-of-doomsday scenarios that Will Travers and his API team were created to prevent in advance. But failure is one of Rubicon‘s greatest READ FULL STORY

'Carlos' tonight: Left-wing extremism turned into art

You have a fine opportunity tonight: Carlos, the extraordinary film about the real-life international terrorist Carlos the Jackal, will begin airing this evening on the Sundance Channel. The movie is scheduled to open in some theaters on Friday. Don’t miss the chance to watch it at home: Think Scarface with radical politics.

Bruce Springsteen documentary tonight: 'More than rich or famous, I wanted to be great'

There are two Bruce Springsteens in tonight’s don’t-miss HBO special The Promise: The Making of Darkness On The Edge of Town. There’s the Springsteen of the late 1970s, ambitious and anxious and eager to get on with his career in the wake of his then-recent ascent to super-stardom with Born To Run.
