Warehouse 13: Season Two

Syfy's slyest series


Television series

Rod Lott
Proof Syfy viewers can have great taste: "Warehouse 13" is the cable channel's most successful original series. And it's not totally geeky.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Chimps ahoy!


Science Fiction

Rod Lott
Say what you will about Tim Burton’s widely despised 2001 remake of “Planet of the Apes,” but if it hadn't made serious bank, this prequel would not exist.

One Day


Drama

Phil Bacharach
“One Day” turns on a gimmick, chronicling the tumultuous, on-again/ off-again romance of two people by dropping in on them the same date — July 15 — each year. It’s a clever device, if not enough to disguise the fact that otherwise, this tearjerker is as old-fashioned as they come.

Death and Cremation

Either beats taxes.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Two outcasts are better than one in Death and Cremation, a better-than-average indie thriller, thanks mainly to mood. Even the smallest of budgets can afford that, yet few think to invest in it.

Six years down ... and still killer.


Television series

Sins and sons — those are the driving themes for the sixth season of Dexter, arguably the anchor of the Showtime cable network. Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall in his Golden Globe-winning role) is a Miami Metro PD forensics analyst who moonlights as a serial killer of serial killers.

Dexter: The Seventh Season

A cut below the previous.


Television series

Rod Lott
There's no way to discuss the seventh and penultimate season of Showtime's hit Dexter without acknowledging how the previous year ended. Therefore, if you haven't finished the sixth season, stop reading now. You've got work to do.

Bad behavior

Why is watching bad guys so damned good?


Television series

Rod Lott
We vilify people for bad behavior in real life, yet celebrate it in our entertainment, particularly on the small screen. When the results are as strong as the current crop, all new (or new-ish) to DVD and/or Blu-ray, why question the disconnect?
