A New Brain

I adored A New Brain when I saw it in 1998, but I'm not sure it's aged that well. My take on the Encores! revival is here.

Wayward Pines

After reviewing the early episodes, I checked back on Wayward Pines. And it's still good! Click here for what makes the show work.

My favorite French Touch tracks

OK, so this is far from exhaustive but it's a good sampler. And sure, I include Stardust -- it's still great! Click here for the fun house.

Significant Other

Joshua Harmon's new play is a lot of fun but so conventional under its contemporary trappings. My review's here.

Doctor Faustus

Chris Noth and Zach Grenier star in a brave attempt that doesn't land. My review of the CSC revival is here.

Deutschland 83

My review of the new German series, about Cold War spy games between East and West Germany.

Preludes

Dave Malloy's new one is maybe a little too diffuse for my taste but man, the guy can write songs! My review's here.

The Qualms

Bruce Norris' new dark comedy doesn't dig very deep but it's pretty entertaining. My review's here.
