5 TV Shows You Should Binge Watch This Summer
Popcorn films once ruled the summer entertainment season. Now, TV is king. Every TV viewer, from the casual ones to the fanatics, easily finds shows that appeal to their binge-watching appetite among the ratings kings, or the ones critics obsess over. However, some smaller cult shows often get neglected by TV fans.

Being a television fan 1.0.1 says you must know all the highs and lows of shows like Breaking Bad, Lost, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, I Love Lucy, and The Sopranos. But they’re just a number of remarkably written, acted, and directed televisions series, some of which are currently ...

'This Week In Horror' Dissections: 'The Following,' 'Bates Motel,' 'Hannibal' – April 22-28

April 29th, 2013 9:12am EDT
Hannibal
Part II of my weekly ‘This Week In Horror’ column.  For mini-recaps of ‘The Following,’ ‘Bates Motel,’ and ‘Hannibal,’ see Part I.

What is so different between events on ‘Bates Motel’ spiraling out of control in a good way versus events on ‘The Following’ spiraling out of control in a bad way?  There’s a fine line between brilliant chaos and just a chaotic mess.

‘The Following’ is filled with ineptitude on the part of the authorities, so shouldn’t one ...

Bates Motel
NBCUniversal has two shows on in the next two months that will attempt to explain the twisted backstory of cinema’s most well-known murderers. Next month, on NBC, we’ll learn about the friendship between cannibal Hannibal Lecter and an FBI agent in Hannibal. And this coming Monday on A&E, we’ll learn what happened during his teenage years to cause Norman Bates to impersonate his dead mother and murder a young woman in the shower.

But first things first, Bates Motel isn’t a direct prequel to the film Psycho. It can’t be—Bates Motel is set in contemporary time, something you might not pick u...
