MOVIE PREMIERE: This spinoff movie takes the concept of Between Two Ferns, Zach Galifianakis’ brilliantly awkward fake talk show, and makes a fake documentary about the making of it. On camera, on one of the sequences introducing this new approach, the host refers to it as Behind Two Ferns– and also talks about it as a peek behind his “award-losing talk show.” Scenes with members of the talk show’s support staff, and executives at the local-access ope

SERIES PREMIERE: This international experiment in TV drama takes the same confined setting – a high-tech police interrogation room – and populates it with different sets of actors playing investigators, with each episode devoted to interrogating a different suspect. There are four series in all, and all premiere today on Netflix. Criminal: United Kingdom is the easiest entry point, because it’s all in English, and the defendant in the first case is played by guest sta

SEASON PREMIERE: Season 2 of this wild animated Netflix series from Matt Groening and company extends its vision far past the mythical kingdom of the first season, and travels to many other lands. In fact, before this new season is over, Disenchantment, like its heroine, goes to hell and back…

Tonight’s guest is someone who rivals the host on the Comic Snark scale: David Spade.

SERIES PREMIERE: I like it when like-minded, and similarly talented, artists get together to talk craft. I liked it, for example, when David Steinberg talked one-on-one with fellow comedians on his talk show Inside Comedy. And now here comes Paul Shaffer, the musical Zelig who ran the bands for both David Letterman’s talk shows and the early Saturday Night Live, not to mention a bunch of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions, talking music one-on-one with a series of mu

The power play in play in tonight’s episode is so ruthless and obvious, and the stakes so high, that calling it a power play minimizes its nastiness. This is no game, and no one is playing.

SERIES PREMIERE: This series, based on a true story, has enticing talent both in front of and behind the camera. It’s the story of a young girl who claims to be the victim of an assault, but the lack of physical proof and other evidence leads her to be dismissed by authorities – until years later, when a team of investigators links her case to similar assaults on single women elsewhere. The initial victim, Marie, is played by Kaitlyn Dever, whom Justified fans will remember

SERIES PREMIERE: This new Netflix limited series has a clever title – taking Apple’s ubiquitous iprefix, which already has given us such resonant TV series names as iZombie, and using it for a high-tech, computer-generated artificial environment equivalent of a deserted island. Or i-Land, get it? Sure, okay. But this story, which introduces us to 10 people who wake up on the same deserted isle with no memories, and have to work their way though a threatening,

With her reign at 66 years and counting, there’s a lot of territory to cover, and four seasons are planned. On sale at Amazon for $17. Remember, no smiling and wave only with the wrist. –Eric Gould
