Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti in 'Billions'

#Bingeworthy: Market Analysts Bullish on ‘Billions’

Given that the economy crashed more than 8 years ago thanks in no small part to the greed of high-finance types, and that former President Obama’s Justice Department faced great criticism for not jailing or even aggressively prosecuting any Wall Street CEOs, it’s a little surprising that a show like Billions didn’t appear until 2016….

Michael Mando as Nacho Varga in Better Call Saul

Recap Digest: ‘Better Call Saul’ 3.6, “Off Brand”

With last week’s spectacular “Chicanery” serving up a full hour of McGill fraternal drama and not so much as a check-in with the Mike and Gus half of the show, this week’s episode more than made up for the lack of Pollos-related plot movement, with appearances by Breaking Bad characters Victor, Tyrus, Krazy-8, and even…

At long last, it is happening again. When Twin Peaks premiered in 1990, it…

Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring on AMC's 'Better Call Saul'

Recap Digest: ‘Better Call Saul’ 3.4, “Sabrosito”

It was fitting that an episode that may have been the most overtly part of the Breaking Bad-verse to date would begin with an underwater shot like the one that opened so many season 2 episodes of the former series. But just when you’re catching yourself wondering when the scorched pink teddy bear is going…

American Gods Ricky Whittle

‘American Gods’ Is Bryan Fuller’s Best Yet

Bryan Fuller proved his genre chops with the short-lived, cult favorites Wonderfalls, Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, and Hannibal, but even die-hard fans are in for a shock this Sunday. Nothing can prepare audiences for the premiere of American Gods—not Game of Thrones’ shadow-demon birth scene, nor any of the batshittery that’s ever gone down on an episode of True Blood….
