Review: Netflix's 'Sense8' makes no sense at first, but will it by binge's end?

The Wachowskis and 'Babylon 5' creator J. Michael Straczynski team up for a globe-spanning... something

"Sense8" is a show that could only exist on Netflix (or another streaming service like it), because no human would have the patience to watch it weekly.

But that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Review: 'Hannibal' has plenty of nightmare fuel ready for season 3

Dr. Lecter goes to Europe, with Dr. Dana Scully in tow

The visual language of "Hannibal" has grown increasingly more abstract and dreamlike as the series has gone on. As the show and its central characters get ever closer to the iconic serial killer, the less their realities seem to be governed by basic laws of either narrative logic or physics. When you are in with Hannibal Lecter, you are in a waking nightmare, where everything seems like it should exist only in the darkest corners of imagination, but is instead somehow horrifyingly real.

Stephen Colbert bids goodbye to the Colbeard as he preps for 'Late Show'

There's no question that Stephen Colbert is qualified to succeed David Letterman as host of "Late Show." The big question has been whether abandoning the format of "The Colbert Report," as well as the character of "Stephen Colbert," would take away too much of what made Colbert such a special part of the late night galaxy, and turn him into just another guy interviewing celebrities.

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

Set a course for New Jersey as we revisit the dawn of TV's drama revolution

Welcome to the first 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.

Firewall & Iceberg, Episode 287: 'Hannibal,' 'Sense8,' 'Community' & more

Dan and Alan also begin the summer finale rewatch with 'Six Feet Under'

The

Happy Tuesday, boys and girls! It's a Firewall & Iceberg Podcast focusing on both endings and beginnings, as we discussed what sure felt like the "Community" series finale, as well as kicking off our summer series on classic final episodes with "Six Feet Under," while we reviewed one returning show we love ("Hannibal") and one new show we were baffled but not necessarily bored by ("Sense8").

It's unclear when exactly we'll be doing the next podcast, in part because I'll be in LA early next week and Dan and I will record a video show while we're both in the same room. But whether we podcast late next week or wait until the week after, our next finale will be "One For the Road" the three-part farewell to "Cheers," which is streaming on both Netflix and Hulu. Enjoy.

Review: Lifetime takes on ‘The Bachelor’ with strong new drama ‘UnReal’

Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer play producers trying to turn people into characters

Even when I watched far more reality TV than I do now, I had zero patience for dating competition shows. And I haven't watched a Lifetime show regularly since "Any Day Now" ended waaaay back in 2002.

Yet I've already set a DVR season pass for "UnReal," Lifetime's new drama set behind the scenes at a thinly-disguised version of "The Bachelor." That's how good it is.
