  1. The Andy Greenwald Podcast: William H. Macy

    Andy Greenwald

    Over the course of his long and impressive career, William H. Macy has gone from being one of Hollywood's most reliable "that guy" character actors to the guy. This Sunday marks the fourth-season premiere of Shameless, Showtime's scabrous family come...

  2. The 10 Most Underappreciated TV Performances of 2013

    Andy Greenwald

    The holiday lights are off, but the ball has yet to drop. It's the perfect time to use 2013's remaining shine on some of its least-heralded performers. What follows isn't a list of the year's best TV shows (already done!) or the best actors on those ...

    Zach Dionne

    Homeland's Season 3 finale, the one that, for Andy Greenwald, "revealed the show I once loved to be utterly, perhaps irreparably broken," got the series's highest ratings yet. 2.4 million viewers tuned in to watch mumblemumblemumble happen to mumblem...

  4. The Homeland Season 3 Finale: Too Little, Too Late for a Lost Sho...

    Andy Greenwald

    Like Carrie Mathison, I, too, have loved recklessly and too deeply. Like Carrie, I have listened to the addled voices in my own head when the facts on the ground were screaming at me to turn tail and retreat. I have been stubborn. I have burned bridg...

  5. The Andy Greenwald Podcast: Masters of Sex Showrunner Michelle As...

    Andy Greenwald

    Showtime's Masters of Sex ended its terrific first season on a high last night, even while it brought its main character very, very low. To celebrate, David Jacoby joined me to discuss how we lost our respective virginities to the charms of Masters a...

  6. Masters of Sex: The 'Phallic Victories' of One of the Best Shows ...

    Andy Greenwald

    Would it be too on the nose (or on something else) to say that Showtime's Masters of Sex has reached the plateau stage? Most rookie series tend to fumble with quality like an adolescent with a bra strap. But the beguiling Masters has been both thrill...

  7. Halfway Through Season 3, Homeland Still Has No Idea What It's Ab...

    Andy Greenwald

    There has always been something grotty and amoral about Homeland. From the beginning, the show has presented a drone-cam vision of a topsy-turvy world, one devoid of good guys and bad guys, right and wrong. In fact, it's a world that barely qualifies...

  8. The Increasingly Fleshed-Out Masters of Sex

    Andy Greenwald

    As I wrote last month, many of my reasons for liking Showtime's Masters of Sex were for all of the things that it wasn't. There were no antiheroes, no noble criminals. Blood was shed only in operating theaters. The deaths were little, and occurred in...

  9. Homeland Season 3, Episode 3 Recap: Can Brody's Return Save the F...

    Andy Greenwald

    Three episodes into its third season seems a bit early for a show to have split its fan base into distinct, warring factions — Breaking Bad, by contrast, waited until the very last hour. But Homeland has never been a particularly patient series...

  10. Afternoon Links: Showtime Demanded Dexter Be Unkillable

    Zach Dionne

    The Dexter series finale was everything Breaking Bad's closer wasn't: namely, pretty lame. Was there any way it could've been better? Like, if the guy who killed so many people over the last eight years tasted his own medicine, maybe? Quizzed by Vult...

  11. Homeland Season 3, Episode 2 Recap: An Unpleasant Turn From Saul ...

    Andy Greenwald

    If Homeland's title had ever intended to double its length, I'd always assumed the missing word would be "security." But two seasons and two episodes in, I now think "stability" is a better fit. In a country as big as ours and with psyches as damaged...

  12. Homeland Season 3, Episode 1 Recap: Sifting Through the Wreckage ...

    Andy Greenwald

    There has always been a strong element of silliness to Homeland, but the way it has been handled has been consistently smart. At its very best, the show mimicked not the plausible particulars of our national security mechanism, but instead the real e...

  13. Preview: Let's Talk About Masters of Sex, Baby

    Andy Greenwald

    It took me a few episodes to acclimate to Showtime's new Masters of Sex, premiering this Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. (For Breaking Bad fans, this is about the time you'll be prostrate on the floor, covered in tears and the accumulated dust of crushed Xa...

  14. Breaking Brad on the Grantland Channel: The Decline of Homeland

    Grantland Channel

    Bill's friend Brad is back to question how a congressman was turned into a chauffeur in the second season of Showtime's Homeland, how you can kill someone with a text message, and why a CIA agent would be going on weekend romps with a terrorist....

  15. The Andy Greenwald Podcast: Masters of Sex Star Lizzy Caplan

    Andy Greenwald

    Lizzy Caplan is so good at playing a certain type of role — think strong, sarcastic singletons like Casey on Party Down or Gena in last year's raunchy Bachelorette — that she's chosen to actively avoid it for her most high-profile part to...

    Juliet Litman

    Dexter finished its eight-season run last night, and it was an atrocious ending. Immediately following Episode 8 of this final season (the one in which Dexter finds Zach's corpse in his desk chair), I searched the Internet to see the reaction to ...
