'Strike Back' star Philip Winchester: 'Maybe I'm just stupid enough to enjoy it'

One adventure ends this summer, and a new one begins this fall on NBC with 'The Player'

Tomorrow night at 10, Cinemax premieres the final season of "Strike Back," the rip-roaring buddy action drama about a pair of soldiers working for an elite British special forces unit. In the four seasons of its Cinemax incarnation (one season aired first in England, with an entirely different cast led by Richard Armitage), it's been a pleasure to watch: always smarter, more technically proficient, and just plain better than it ever needed to be.

Andy Daly on 'Review' season 2: 'Forrest is even more committed to this show'

'The Sopranos' Rewind: Season 1, Episode 9: 'Boca'

Junior takes a vacation, and Meadow's soccer coach runs afoul of Tony

Welcome to the ninth installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine.

Thoughts on the ninth episode, “Boca," coming up just as soon as you lie like I play the French horn...

Review: 'Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp' goes back with all-star cast

The actors are 14 years older, the characters are two months younger, and the story is twice as long

Early in 2001's summer camp movie parody "Wet Hot American Summer," Bradley Cooper's Ben told his fellow counselors, "Hey, let's all promise that in ten years from today, we'll meet again, and we'll see what kind of people we've blossomed into."

'Banshee' ending with season 4 because 'we were done telling the story'

The upcoming fourth season of "Banshee" will be the last for the kick-ass Cinemax action drama. But it's ending on its own creative terms, and not because Cinemax wanted it to.
