"A study group is a collective endeavor. And so is a TV show: a character is the joint project of a creator and a writers’ room and a performer and directors and crew. And so is your life: you are yourself, of course, but you are also how your parents have shaped you and what your friends have done with you and what your loved ones will say about you after you are gone."
In what may be its last word, the comedy reminds us that we are all group projects.

"There is more TV than there is life."
Who has time for summer TV when you’re still catching up on winter TV?

"Letterman’s last minutes behind the desk were as heavy on the laughs as on the thank-yous, an hour-plus of an entertainer being an entertainer and enjoying it. It was true to Dave, it was fun and it was terrific."
The late-night legend's last show was emotional (but not maudlin) and very funny

"Watching Mad Men, we’re like Charlton Heston’s astronaut from the climactic Planet of the Apes scene we saw Don watch with his son. We’re exploring an alien landscape, becoming absorbed in it, being fascinated and sometimes horrified by its differences—only to realize, in the end, that that’s our Statue of Liberty buried in the sand. It was our world all along."
How Mad Men rode the carousel of the past into television history

"Not only did he love to eat, he realized that food was culture that you engaged with, literally, on a gut level."

"NBC and Netflix seem agreed that eventually they will be in the same business. But Netflix is getting to NBC’s territory a lot faster than NBC is getting to Netflix’s."
As the broadcaster embraces binge-watching, the streaming giant is pitching a big tent.

I beta-tested the relaunched Halt and Catch Fire, and strongly suggest you upgrade.
If you weren't an early adopter of this computer-biz drama, don't worry. Season 2 is easy to jump into, and it's excellent.

It’s time for TLC to get out of the Duggar business.
The reality show has been selling a sanctimonious sham

"Don Draper went through Mad Men‘s run as a man of mystery. He left us with one more, sponsored by Coke: Has he, after years of selling fake happiness, found The Real Thing?"
Have a Coke and a smile: a rambling finale leads to either TV's saddest happy ending or its happiest sad ending.

Maligned and ill-used, flawed and fascinating, she was essential to the show's themes and its feminism.

Legitimate or otherwise, the children of Game of Thrones are taking center stage.

"That kind of awareness–knowing how women are judged, rejecting it, enabling it, toying with it–is the nugget of nuclear fuel that powers Schumer’s feminist sketch machine."
Schumer's sketch show is a war comedy, and she's the battlefield.
