About a month ago, surprising news broke that Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda might at long last get the live-action treatment with a Game of Thrones-style Netflix series, odd considering the video game juggernaut’s usual reticence with intellectual properties. Now, Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata has reportedly denied the project’s development, albeit with a bit of wiggle room.
Of every Girls season finale, “Home Birth” feels the most final — major changes and life plans happen in the blink of an eye; new lives enter this world and familiar faces fade; and perhaps what makes this episode feel so final is the “six months later” coda, which feels just as unnecessary here as it does in just about any other film or television show. That’s not to say that the conclusion doesn’t have its charms, but it might have been best saved for next season, given the powerful sequence that preceded it.
Fans of American Horror Story have been clamoring since Season 2 to return original star Connie Britton to the fold, and Ryan Murphy has (sort of) granted their wish.

The moderate success of FOX’s 24 return helped fuel speculation that The X-Files could similarly prove a prime candidate for limited series, and according to rumor, a Mulder and Scully reunion is closer than ever.

Welcome back to another installment of the Monday Morning Critic. In this space each week, I’ll be looking at the week that was in addition to the week ahead in television. The format will shift each week, as the world of TV will dictate the form and content of each piece. In this week’s installment: shows that are in danger of falling into my DVR abyss.
The Walking Dead proved with Sunday’s penultimate Season 5 installment that Alexandria’s walls do little to keep out the drama, but will next Sunday’s finale see attempts to “Conquer” on either side? AMC has released the first official clip from next week’s installment, and Rick’s group isn’t looking particularly welcome after the latest bloodbath.
The Walking Dead season 5 brings its 15th episode to life with Sunday’s “Try,” as Rick upsets the Alexandria order in dealing with Jessie and her abusive husband Pete, while Daryl and Aaron make a shocking discovery outside the walls.
HBO hilariously (and profanely) reintroduced us to the world of Mike Judge tech comedy Silicon Valley by its first Season 2 teaser, though with April 12 fast approaching, Pied Piper finally has new footage to show. Who’s ready for the efficient prioritization of bros by the first official Silicon Valley Season 2 trailer?
