Weekend Binge Guide: October 2015

Have the weekend free? Going out is overrated! Binge-watch one of these shows instead:   If you want to laugh:     Workaholics See all reviews for Workaholics No one knows how to have fun (or get high, or slack off) quite like best friends Adam, Blake, and Anders. They're definitely not the coolest (or the smartest, or the smoothest), but gosh darn are they creative when it comes to avoiding work. (I promise, you don't have to be a stoner or a delinquent to appreciate this kind of funny... though it couldn't hurt.)     If you want to cry:     The Affair See all reviews for The Affair Sorry folks, if you're looking for a mushy, romantic love story, this definitely isn't it. Instead, Noah and Alison's affair — told from both characters' perspectives — is dark, emotional, and shrouded in mystery. But that's a little more fun than the typical boy-meets-girl story, right?       If you want to scream:     The Knick See all reviews for  The Knick As it turns out, dangerous surgeries led by a cocaine-addicted surgeon are the best kind of medicine. I'd been warned that this period piece gets all kinds of bloody and gutty, but even my squeamish side can't resist the talented Clive Owen. (Bonus: The score is incredible.)       If you want to think:     The Newsroom See all reviews for  The Newsroom If you're not the newspaper-reading type, you can always learn about real-world events the way the rest of us do: from a fictional (but no less brilliant!) TV news team. No, the events covered won't be quite so "current" anymore, but on the plus side, Aaron Sorkin! p { text-align: justify; }

Olivia Munn Speaks Out About Newsroom Rape Story Controversy (Video)

Olivia Munn sidestepped talking directly about the rape storyline on The Newsroom Sunday during an appeared on Watch What Happens Live Thursday night. Instead, she talked about the former writer of the show, Alena Smith, who voiced her opposition to the storyline on Twitter. My takeaway was that if the writer had something to say that was intelligent, that was going to be very supportive, she should have said that, Munn told Andy Cohen . All she did was talk about her experience on The Newsroom. And so, if you're going to open your mouth, you might as well say something actually intelligent.   Read More...

That woman is Lilly Hart, played by actress Clea DuVall.Hart is the source who has almost single handedly shaken up the world at Atlantis Cable News (ACN). Hart is the person who gave Neal Sampat (Dev Patel) top secret government files and the woman MacKenzie (Emily Mortimer) has been communicating with pretty much on the regular. Hart is also someone viewers see in the Nov. 30 episode Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) is willing to go to jail to protect, even though he has never met her.If DuVall looks familiar it is probably because she has been acting since 1996 and her impressive resume runs the gambit from roles in things like Freddie Prinze Jr.'s teen classic movie "She's All That" to a great run on "American...
