The PBS documentary series America in Primetime, which premieres this weekend, puts TV under the microscope, analyzing various tropes and character archetypes. Critic David Bianculli says it's the smartest TV show about television he's seen in the past two decades.
The new FX drama series American Horror Story premiered last week and last night, the AMC drama Breaking Bad presented its season finale. TV critic David Bianculli says both are must-sees — because they both leave him wanting more.
TV critic David Bianculli says most shows on TV this fall are a big disappointment. But three offerings this upcoming Sunday night — Prohibition, Dexter and Homeland — are all excellent, invigorating and exceptionally intelligent.
