It’s the heart of the holiday season, and you may need a retreat of sorts if you’re having palpitations about buying, wrapping, and rapping with loved ones. There are many old, soothing shows that will be there for you, for hours at a time, when you can no longer face all the joy.Joy can be trying. Advertisement Plenty has been said, by me and a ton of other TV critics — not to mention TV viewers — about Quality TV and Peak TV and so on and so forth. The short version: There are an awful lot of good new shows out there on cable, network, and streaming TV, if you know where to find them. You could easily spend the entire holiday week bingeing fine series — Amazon’s “Homecoming,” … [Read more...] about The marathons: They’re going, and going, and going . . .

Adam Graham Detroit News Film Critic Published 7:12 PM EDT Oct 18, 2018 It's the thrill ride horror fans have been waiting decades for and had every reason to believe they'd never receive. But director David Gordon Green has come together with co-writers Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley and cooked up one hell of an October surprise. Fresh, frightening and even funny — with a ferocious Jamie Lee Curtis performance to boot — "Halloween" straight up rocks.

The proposal strikes at the … [Read more...] about As Trump Dismantles Clean Air Rules, an Industry Lawyer Delivers for Ex-Clients
