A quick reminder of what Veronica went through on her TV show

The "Veronica Mars" movie doesn't arrive in theaters for another two weeks — and will be simultaneously available via various digital and On Demand platforms, in addition to all the Kickstarter backers who paid $35 or more getting their own copy of the film on March 14 — and to continue priming the audience, Warner Bros. has put the first two minutes of the film online.

The Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham role reversal spices up the new season

The easiest way to appreciate the greatness of NBC's "Hannibal," which begins its second season tomorrow night at 10, is to look at almost any of the other serial killer dramas that are littering primetime, from CBS' unkillable "Criminal Minds" to FOX's moronic "The Following" to A&E's upcoming Chloe Sevigny-waster "Those Who Kill." There are too many of these shows, and almost all of them get off on the same fetishized scenes of bound-and-gagged victims whimpering while their leering abductor prepares to do something horrible to them, and almost all of them feature heroes who often seem too stupid to function, the better to allow their cackling opponents free rein.

The adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok and friends remain more entertaining than they need to be

This is, you may have noticed, a very busy week for TV premieres, as the business unpaused itself in a big way the second the Olympics were over. February is now the new September, unless maybe January is the new September, which would make February the new January, and this is all so very confusing when all you want to know is when "Hannibal" is going to be back (that'd be tomorrow night at 10, and I'll have a review of the new season going up this afternoon).

Jason Momoa's charisma can only do so much for pokey Jersey crime story

Sundance Channel entered 2013 like a network with something to prove, and did it ever. Making the move into original scripted dramas like sister channel AMC, Sundance gave us three of that year's absolute best shows: the New Zealand mystery miniseries "Top of the Lake," the meditative life-after-prison series "Rectify" and the creepy supernatural French series "The Returned." Now, the first of those was an international co-production, and the latter an import that Sundance acquired, but together they sent a message about how serious Sundance was about being great, and quickly, while also laying down a very clear aesthetic for the channel: the TV version of indie cinema. If it wasn't as revolutionary as seeing HBO present "Oz," "The Sopranos" and "Six Feet Under" all in a row, it was perhaps the most impressive debut trifecta since then(*).
