Season premiere review: 'Mad Men' - 'Time Zones'

Big changes hit both coasts as Don, Peggy and company begin their final season

"Mad Men" is back for the start of its seventh season — which is or isn't the final season depending on whether you value contractual language (which says it is) over scheduling (which will give us seven episodes this spring and seven more next year) — and I have a review of the premiere coming up just as soon as I'm seated next to a man in a hairpiece eating a banana...

HitFix First Look: 'Parks and Recreation' presents 'The Swanson Way'

Embracing the many moods of the most competent man in Pawnee

Tomorrow night's "Parks and Recreation" — titled "Flu Season 2," though it wisely doesn't try to simply replicate the beats of the show's funniest episode — is one of my favorites of this season, with a good mix of big laughs and big emotion, and a moment for everyone in the cast to shine. There isn't a Ron Swanson story in there, necessarily, but he spends most of the episode as a sounding board for Ben, and in the process Nick Offerman once again reminds you how much he can do with very little material.

Review: 'Marvel's Agents of SHIELD' - 'Turn, Turn, Turn'

Drew McWeeny has been covering "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" for us all season, and like usual he had a thoughtful take on last night's episode. But given both how pivotal and unusual "Turn, Turn, Turn" was, I figured I would check in as well with a review — featuring spoilers for both this episode and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" — coming up just as soon as I have thoughts on Chachi...
