Weekend Binge Guide: August 2015

Have the weekend free? Going out is overrated! Binge-watch one of these shows instead:   If you want to laugh:   Veep See all reviews for Veep First thing to note: Veep , while a 30-minute comedy, is not a sitcom. Veep is a comedy featuring funny people , behaving in normal situations — essentially the opposite of a sitcom. This HBO series thrives on its unparalleled wit, the likes of which TV audiences haven't experienced since Gregory House left the airwaves (though I'll point out that they even got Hugh Laurie on Veep for season 4).       If you want to cry:   Finding Carter See all reviews for  Finding Carter Finding Carter is an MTV Drama centered around a teenage girl (Kathryn Prescott) who, after 16 happy years, discovers that the woman whom she thought was her mother is actually her kidnapper. She's promptly sent to live with her real parents and younger brother and sister. Finding Carter is an extremely emotional series. It raises a variety of controversial questions (which I won't get into here, so as not to spoil them) while doing a fantastic job of connecting with the audience by making the characters feel truly authentic.     If you want to scream:   Banshee See all reviews for  Banshee Banshee is one of the most (if not, in fact the most) violent series on television. The show focuses on Detective Lucas Hood — who isn't actually Detective Lucas Hood, but a fresh-out-of-prison ex-con who has taken on his identity. Hood patrols the town of Banshee: a crime-riddled place on the outskirts of Amish and Indian territory. Hood is the type to shoot first and ask questions later — in fact, he'll probably just shoot you and hold the questions. If he doesn't have his gun with him, he'll beat the crap out of you in a cinematically awesome way. Those beatings account for some of the best hand-to-hand choreographed combat on the tube. If you like violence, gore, shootin'-tootin' and action, Banshee is for you.   If you want to think:   12 Monkeys See all reviews for 12 Monkeys Whenever the subject of time travel comes up confusion abounds. Agent Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock) of Warehouse 13 perfectly summed up my thoughts on this matter: "Don't talk to me about time travel!" But then along came 12 Monkeys , a show about time travel that, all things considered, is actually not so confusing. Any confusion you may experience is a confusion the writers intend for you to experience, and yes, the writing for this show really makes you think. The stakes are high, the characters are strong, and the drama is real. p { text-align: justify; }

Veep Showrunner Armando Iannucci on Emmy Nods, Jet Lag and 2016 Presidential Candidates

Veep, American Crime & The Slap Editors Cut In Tension, Laughs & Multiple Perspectives

Being an editor is a little like being a mortician. You're often the last one to see the finished product and, if done well, no one notices your handiwork. Of course, in TV, millions attend the viewing. And a bad wake can be the death of a show or career. But such are the perils of the TV editor, who must at once represent the director's vision while maintaining the skepticism and surprise of a viewer.    Read More...
