1. Southland, TNT

(Season 3 began January 4)

I have to admit that I didn't keep up with TNT's gritty Los Angeles cop drama as much as I would have liked; it fell victim to sharing Tuesday nights with three other shows on my watch list. Yet when I did find time to catch it, I was no less than impressed every time.

There's been talk about the show's TV-MA content (allegedly the reason that NBC axed it), but the real talking point should be the st...

Review: Lin's 'Fast Five' Is Furiously Long

April 29th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Fast Five
When you hear that the runtime for “Fast Five” is 130 minutes, you’ll probably wonder why a mere 90, is not enough to unravel the fifth “Fast and the Furious” yarn. Ultimately, the reason is that the filmmakers tell an overly complex tale, in an effort to milk the actors, the chase sequences, and even the series itself for all they are worth.

Picking up where the fourth film left off, “Fast Five” starts with flashbacks to the sentencing of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his transportation to captivity. En route, his pal Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and his sister Mia (Jordana Brewster)...
