'Avengers: Age of Ultron' spoiler review: The superhero sequel as epic TV story arc

Joss Whedon somehow managed to make more feel like more, rather than less, in his second and final turn

HitFix certainly doesn't lack for coverage of "Avengers: Age of Ultron," including Drew McWeeny's review and the whole staff picking the best and worst parts of the film. But as someone who's been writing about Joss Whedon's work for a long time, and as someone who's been covering "Agents of SHIELD" this season (more on that in a bit), I wanted to offer some thoughts on the movie, its place in both the Marvel filmography and Whedon's, with lots and lots of spoilers for the film (so beware), coming up just as soon as I remodel the dining room...

It's a nice balance of a lot of things the show does best.

We live in an age when methods of both delivering and watching television that would have been unthinkable even five years ago are now routine, and where rules that defined the business model of television for decades are now changing every three days or so.

David Letterman opens up to New York Times about Colbert, the Jimmys & more

Throughout his 33 years in late-night television — and particularly in the time he's spent at CBS — David Letterman has only rarely agreed to be interviewed, and he's even more rarely as open and self-reflective as he is in this great piece by Dave Itzkoff of The New York Times.
