Top 10 lists rank among the more unusual aspects of movie and TV criticism, and as my colleagues Ryan McGee, Matt Singer, and Mike Sampson’s own 2014 favorites will attest, the end-of-year celebration format brings with it a unique mixture of...

Where can we find her, a woman like that? HBO’s ‘True Detective’ seeks to answer this very question, and will go straight to the source for an answer. That’s right, “Jessie’s Girl” artist Rick Springfield will lend his vocal and physical talents to the dark and dreary drama serial with a part in ‘True Detective’ season 2, and we’d tell you who he is, but the point is probably moot.
HBO surprised us all a few months ago with the revelation that cordcutters might finally have a solution, as the pay-cable network announced plans for an independent online streaming service in 2015. Now, an internal memo suggests that the new service will arrive with ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 in April, also revealing some surprising prospects for the future of HBO GO.
It’s that time of the year, when pop culture websites and critics publish their annual Best Of lists and we heap praise on the best and most beloved movies and TV shows of the year. But what about the average moviegoer and TV-viewer? That’s where Facebook comes in. The social media site has released their top 10 movies and top 10 TV shows of the year, based on the most discussed titled of 2014. While some are fairly obvious, the lists might surprise you and inspire you to contemplate the overlap between what’s popular and what’s actually good.
Showtime's 'Dexter' may have ended in a lumberjacked hurricane of absurdity, but the 'Masuka' spinoff will live on in spirit. C.S. Lee is the latest confirmed to join the cast of HBO's 'True Detective' season 2, but as whom, you ask?
Observing the pre-production and casting process of ‘True Detective’ season 2 has long been an exercise in rumor control. For months now, we’ve talked about the roles and supporting cast of actors like Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams, despite the fact that HBO could only confirm Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn officially cast. Now at least, Kitsch and McAdams have formally joined the party, while Kelly Reilly too has been set in a supporting role.
HBO has yet to formalize all of its ‘True Detective’ season 2 leads, having only officially confirmed Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, but as with the last round of support casting we’d heard, the rabbit hole goes only deeper. Lolita Davidovich and ‘True Blood’ alum James Frain are the latest to join HBO’s hotly-anticipated follow-up, though their ‘True Detective’ season 2 roles don’t exactly clear up our questions.
HBO and 'True Detective' season 2 have only formally confirmed Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn among the cast, with Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams ostensibly assured, though the dark and dreamy drama has kept right on casting. Kelly Reilly, Abigail Spencer, Michael Irby and Leven Rambin have all been added to 'True Detective' season 2 but as whom, you ask?
'True Detective' season 2 has been something of a Hollywood guessing game, even with HBO's official confirmation that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn would comprise two of the show's new leads, following Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson of the first season. Taylor Kitsch has long been associated with the HBO drama's second season as well, but has the 'John Carter' star officially confirmed his role?
HBO subscriptions have been something of a running joke through the TV industry, with a great many of the network's loyal fans sharing HBOGO passwords to avoid expensive cable packages, previously the only mean with which to watch shows like 'Game of Thrones' or 'True Detective.' Now, the company has finally acquiesced, and announced an independent streaming service due out in 2015.
