PASADENA, Calif. — A roundup of news from the Television Critics Association winter meeting, at which TV networks and streaming services are presenting details on upcoming programs.

To the very end, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” has been a colorful burst of comedy and optimism. In their followup to “30 Rock,” Tina Fey and Robert Carlock dialed down the cynicism to create something that was equal parts unflappably charming and riotously funny.

PASADENA, Calif. — A roundup of news from the Television Critics Association winter meeting, at which TV networks and streaming services are presenting details on upcoming programs:

With the snow piling up and cabin fever setting it, let’s spend this week taking a look ahead to what we’ll be watching this coming winter and spring.

“Black Mirror” is a television series that masterfully plays on the anxieties of living in the modern age. Its paranoid, pessimistic view of the creeping reach and influence of technology is made more chilling by its familiarity. Series creator and writer Charlie Booker approaches existing t…

It’s easy to get lost in the world of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” Showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino (“Gilmore Girls”), who has a knack for building specific, live-in worlds, has created a saccharine, candy-coated alternate-universe 1950s-era Manhattan full of luxurious spaces and gorgeous cl…

Happy 2019, everyone. Last year was up and down for me (I’m sure many of us would say the same). The year started out with my beloved Philadelphia Eagles finally capturing a Super Bowl title, and ended with me moving up at my regular gig, which were both really good things. In between was so…

If Bruce Springsteen had retired 30 years ago, his legacy as one of music’s most profound and consequential singer-songwriters would already have been secure. But he kept working, kept touring, and kept writing and releasing new music. Along the way, he’s remained relevant in ways few of his…

The holidays and baking go hand in hand. It’s a festive time of year when we warm our kitchens and hearts with confectionary comforts shared with family and friends. With each bite, we recall fond memories and indulge in sweet, buttery, homemade delights as we appreciate the effort and care …

“Bodyguard” begins in a state of extreme tension and never lets up. The hit BBC series, which premiered on Netflix last month, opens on a commuter train bound for London where police Sgt. David Budd (Richard Madden), who’s traveling with his two young children, discovers a female suicide bom…

Growing up in the restaurant industry, I’ve learned a thing or two about cooking. I know my way around a busy kitchen. The sights, sounds and smells are baked into my mind like a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet: the sizzle of the sauté pans, the crackle of the grill, the hurried chop of kniv…

Casting shakeups are nothing new for television shows; actors may decide to depart for any number of reasons. However, depending on the series and the character, those absences can be felt long after the actor has left.

The best horror stories aren’t about ghosts or demons or knife-wielding murderers. The monsters that chase us into basements and down darkened hallways aren’t real; they’re merely grotesque manifestations of the human condition. The best horror stories are psychological; they poke and prod a…

Every once in a great while, a local musician around these parts assembles a project that features a myriad of our local talent, a local "supergroup" if you will. Central Vermont based bass player and singer-songwriter Ben Dunham has done just that with his latest, Backline Collective.

The first season of “American Vandal” came out of nowhere. It was a surprisingly smart, well-observed parody of true-crime documentaries that blended low-brow comedy with high-concept execution. The result was a deadly funny, pitch-perfect representation of low-stakes high-school drama writ large.
