Downton: Abbey: A New Era offers more for fans to love, including a very funny play between the advent of sound cinema and Downton's need to change.
Why is The Gilded Age’s chief scribe reluctant to lampoon his characters who actively uphold and benefit from a privileged society?
The Gilded Age Episode 6 opens upon the wreckage of a train derailment. Akash Singh leads us through where things go from there.
The Gilded Age is, at its core, a story of hypocrisy, but can audiences count on Julian Fellowes to deliver the full critique?
The Gilded Age is an exquisitely designed and barbarous soap opera and, in that vein, it is often remarkably unsubtle.
The latest Downton Abbey: A New Era trailer is here, with its delightful GOWNS and that theme song we all know by heart.
They say it’s a Golden Age for television, but the Downton Abbey movie proves that the big screen still reigns supreme.
We talk to Theo James, leading man of the next big YA novel adaptation Divergent about his character’s internal struggles, what being in a franchise could mean for his career, his fears of being objectified, why people seem to be drawn to dystopian narratives, and why he approaches every job the same way regardless of size or potential success.
It’s wedding season in the seven kingdoms as the first of four planned nuptials finally gets underway. Much of this week’s episode, “Second Sons," concerns the union of Sansa and Tyrion, which turns out to be exactly as sad and awkward as you would expect a forced wedding between a middle-aged dwarf and a 14-year-old girl to be.
In "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" it’s couples night in Westeros as we gear up for no less than three weddings. Sadly, it seems that the awards for happiest couple can go to several candidates other than the betrothed.
Last week’s episode ended on a high point for the series, as Daenerys acquired an army of Unsullied and burned Astapor from the inside out with the help of her dragons. This week's episode, appropriately titled "Kissed by Fire," begins with just as much energy and a healthy helping of fire to boot.
Titled “And Now His Watch Is Ended,” the fourth episode of Game of Thrones’ third season is by far the busiest and best episode we’ve seen yet. It could well represent a turning point for the season, which until this point has sort of oozed along in a relatively disjointed fashion.
Viewers attempting to detect any overarching themes or internal consistency in episode three of season three of Game of Thrones, entitled "Walk of Punishment," might be left stumped. Sort of like Jaime Lannister.
In “Dark Winds, Dark Words”, the action is mercifully contained in Westeros. I’ve been critical of the show so far this season for struggling to juggle the myriad plots, characters and locales, but this episode did a relatively strong job of weaving everything together.
In the premiere episode of the third season of Game of Thrones, titled “Valar Dohaeris” (a term that means “all men must serve” in High Valyrian) we’re quickly reminded of the stakes of the game. Reintroducing us to the world of Westeros and its inhabitants, the show continues to bring more to the table than it takes off. But will that leave some viewers confused?
