Jackson). The plot centers on the spy agency S.H.I.E.L.D. and Cap’s qualms that a new super-weapon — which Fury says will neutralize threats before...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Americans are increasingly engaging in a practice known as television binge-watching — going through several episodes of a TV show in a single stretch. In the old days, of course, people watched one episode a week. That changed with digital video recorders and Internet streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. DVDs and online services also make it possible to start shows from the beginning, even years after the finale has a...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-583526562014-08-30T01:01:06.094-06:00" id="#license-2014-08-30T01:01:06.094-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Because the premiere of this show is perhaps the most obtuse hour of television you’ll see this season. At the end of 60 minutes, you’ll have very little idea what’s going on. And that’s by design. “It’s based on a novel by Michael Marshall Smith, and that’s very much how the novel reads,” Morgan said. “You go through th...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

It’s sort of sad to see Kelsey Grammer (“Frasier”) and Martin Lawrence (“Martin”) reduced to this. “Partners” is the umpteenth show about attorneys; the umpteenth “Odd Couple.” Grammer stars as Allen Braddock, a mean-spirited version of Frasier Crane — an elitist, priggish, condescending snob.

For Suchet’s dedication to Hercule Poirot through 70 TV adaptations of Agatha Christie’s works, he has been rewarded with the sort of critical praise — “miraculous” and “splendid” are among the applied adjectives — that any fellow classically trained actor would envy.
