‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ EP Says Season 3 Is the ‘Best’ and ‘Darkest’

How unfortunate. The show that delights in tormenting and troubling its three young heroes has something truly terrible in store for viewers: The series is ending.

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events — based on the bestselling YA novels from Snicket (the pen name of Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy winner Neil Patrick Harris as the nefarious Count Olaf — releases its third and final season January 1, which means viewers should expect the Count to pull out all the stops when it comes to getting what he wants.

That would be cash. Of course, the money he’s after rightly belongs to the Baudelaire children, Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes) and toddler Sunny (Presley Smith), whose parents perished in a fire. (Or did they? It’s a bit of a mystery, as are several other plot

Syfy’s 2018 ‘Twilight Zone’ New Year’s Marathon: The Complete Episode Lineup

There is plenty of understandable excitement ahead of Jordan Peele’s reboot of the classic sci-fi/fantasy anthology series The Twilight Zone, which is heading to CBS All Access in 2019.

While previous attempts at reviving this iconic franchise have not been very successful, Peele’s looks a lot more promising since it is clear through his work — particularly in a film like Get Out — that the writer/producer/director not only has a firm and respectful sense of the original series’ twisty, often nightmarish scenarios and storytelling, but also really understands the humanity and sense of social justice that creator Rod Serling wove into his stories to make them as thought-provoking as they were thrilling.

The Best Three ‘Romanoffs’ Episodes You Can Stream Now

Murder! Infidelity! Intrigue!

Those are just a few of the ingredients in The Romanoffs, executive producer Matthew Weiner’s anthology series, his first show since Mad Men ended in 2015. The eight episodes, all directed by Weiner, feature different casts, stories and international locales.

And her thoughts on sharing the screen with Corey Stoll and Noah Wyle.

“You can watch them in any order,” Weiner says of the stand-alone tales. The only common thread? Someone in each installment is, or believes they are, a descendent of the Russian Imperial Romanovs, who were massacred in 1918.

Critics didn’t embrace the high-concept series nearly as much as they did Mad Men. (TV Guide Magazine’s Matt Roush called it “well acted… though something of a grand but

‘Extreme Cake Makers’ Phil & Christine Jensen Recall Baking for Prince Charles & Camilla

There’s No place like home — even if, as a member of the British royal family, you happen to have five of them. Husband-and-wife bakers Phil and Christine Jensen, proprietors of the high-end Peboryon bakery in the Cornish city of Penzance, counted on that sentimental adage for their latest challenge on Extreme Cake Makers, the tasty import about bakers across the pond whose often gravity-defying creations really, well, take the cake.

In preparation for the annual royal visit from Prince Charles and Camilla to Cornwall — the lush setting will be familiar to fans of Poldark — a local member of Parliament asked the Jensens to make two cakes as a proper welcome.
