Here’s what we’ve been watching on television.
Behind the Candelabra
Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema
- Excerpt: The legend of Liberace makes for a touching love story, but where’s the music?
Dexter: Season Seven
Doctor Who Season 7 Part 2
- Excerpt: Obviously if we follow this conceit to its conclusion, and the TARDIS is more than a single book but rather a signifier of All Books and thus a library, then that would, potentially, make the Doctor the universe’s greatest librarian.
Elementary: Dead Man’s Switch
Longmire: Season One
- Excerpt: TV is always looking for a new twist on the familiar genre and this take on the mystery procedural is distinctive and effective.
Never Forget to Lie
Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]
Perception: Season One
Teen Wolf: Season Two
- Excerpt: Where the first season was all about exploring powers and learning to control the werewolf within, the second is about independence, defining your own path, and forming your own pack. In other words, classic teenage concerns in a supernatural frame.
True Blood: Season 5
- Excerpt: It’s all pretty silly and feels rudderless, like a supernatural soap opera tossing everything into the mix for shock value and exploitation spectacle (blood and sex: the pay-cable formula!).
