Season premiere: 'The Killing' - 'The Jungle'/'That You Fear the Most'

What did everybody think of the AMC drama's return?

"The Killing" returned from the dead tonight on AMC with another two-hour premiere. I published my review earlier in the week. Now it's your turn. For those of you who came back tonight, what did you think? Did it feel like Veena Sud and company learned anything from the problems of seasons 1 and 2? Or did it feel like she just embraced the serial killer zeitgeist to spruce up the show? Were you shocked to see the expression on Linden's face in her introductory scene? Did you like the stuff with Peter Sarsgaard at the prison? The teen runaways in the Jungle? Holder in a suit? And will you watch again?

Have at it.

Season finale review: 'Orphan Black' - 'Endless Forms Most Beautiful'

A thrilling end to an out-of-nowhere great first season

Last night, "Orphan Black" wrapped up what turned out to be a terrific first season on BBC America. Liane Bonin Starr has been covering the series for us for a while (here's her take on the finale), but I caught up just in time for some thoughts of my own (on the finale and the season), coming up just as soon as I throw your felt Christmas angel in the garbage disposal...

Can Dan Harmon's return save 'Community'?

Now that Sony is on the verge of rehiring the show's creator, what comes next?

Dan Harmon to the rescue?

A year ago, Sony declined to renew Harmon's contract as "Community" showrunner, for reasons the studio never clarified(*) — though even Harmon himself later acknowledged that he wasn't that easy to deal with, and maybe wasn't worth the bother on such a marginally-rated show. But after a season where "Community" newcomers Moses Port and David Guarascio tried — and often struggled — to continue the show in Harmon's image, the man himself is on the verge of returning. Harmon tweeted that he's coming back, and I'm hearing that the deal isn't officially closed (Sony had no comment), but that signatures are a formality at this point.

'Deadwood' Rewind: Season 3, episode 1: 'Tell Your God to Ready for Blood'

Hearst stages a gambit at the Gem, Seth vents frustration on E.B., and Alma feels faint

For the third summer in a row, we're revisiting David Milch's classic revisionist HBO Western "Deadwood," this time discussing the third season.

While I once upon a time posted two separate reviews so people who hadn't watched the whole series would have a safe place to comment, almost no one bothered commenting on the newbie reviews last year, and they've been ditched. If you haven't finished the series, just avoid the comments of this review and you'll be fine.

Thoughts on the season premiere, "Tell Your God to Ready for Blood," coming up just as soon as I tend bar and let people punch me in the face...
