The Kickstarter-funded movie is more than just fan-service, but fans should love it anyway

However improbable its existence may be, however unconventional its funding was, the "Veronica Mars" movie exists. And it's a blast.

Skip the American show about the dead returning to life and watch the French instead

Look, I hate to be That Guy who sees an American version of a foreign film or show and just tells you to watch the original. It's such a cliché, and it ignores the fact that American remakes can be wonderful in their own right. (Case in point: "The Office.")

Having said that, the only thing of value I can tell you about ABC's new drama series "Resurrection" is that you are much better off simply going to Netflix to stream the first season of Sundance's French import "The Returned."

The 25 best TV opening credit sequences of all-time

The end of 'True Detective' prompts a look back at this unsung art form

Among the many delights of "True Detective," which concludes its first season on Sunday night, has been the show's creepy, evocative opening credits sequence, which juxtaposes mundane imagery with the sort of dark symbols of sex and violence that Rust Cohle and Marty Hart deal with every day.

HitFix First Look: 'Enlisted' prepares for 'Parade Duty'

The unit starts to resent Pete's resentment of being in rear detachment

So FOX's "Enlisted" remains a very funny, exceedingly likable comedy that has been marooned on Friday nights at 9 with no real lead-in — pretty soon, it'll be airing after episodes of "Rake" that FOX is dumping on the night because there's no place else to put them — and will have to rely on non-traditional metrics, plus some empathy from FOX executives, if it's going to survive to another season. And it absolutely deserves to. It's hard to tell, because the episodes have been airing out of order, but the show has coalesced more quickly than your average freshman sitcom (even "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" took longer to get to the level it's at now), the chemistry between Geoff Stults, Chris Lowell and Parker Young as the brothers is a treat, the supporting characters are used for excellent value, and it's a marvelous thing to get to watch at the end of a long work week.

Here's an exclusive clip from tomorrow night's episode, "Parade Duty," where Stults' Pete once again objects to his unit having to deal with an unglamorous assignment — and where, for once, the rest of the unit finally fights back against his hatred of life in the rear detachment. Enjoy.

Don Draper takes a flight in 'Mad Men' final season tease

'Que Sera' for the AMC hero as he enjoys the comforts of TWA

The final season of "Mad Men" (or, at least, the first half of the final season, which is being split between this year and next) doesn't begin until Sunday, April 13 at 10 p.m. on AMC. But as usual, the quintessential show about advertising likes to begin its brand promotion early, with an image and/or video for viewers to fuss over and decode until there are actual episodes to fuss over and decode.
