Roush Review: ‘True Detective’ Returns With a Haunting Mystery & Intricately Woven Story – Twin Falls Times

Time is of the essence in the intricately multilayered puzzle of True Detective’s mesmerizing third season, a return to form for creator Nic Pizzolatto. Curbing his tendency toward the loopy dialogue and mopey metaphysics that made 2015’s pretentious second installment feel like a self-parody, he puts story and character first in this long-awaited comeback season.

And what a character is Wayne Hays, a brooding Arkansas state detective haunted over three decades by a crime that shaped his life and career. Played with a simmering, festering intensity and sorrow by Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Wayne is besieged by ghosts, literal and symbolic, when a true-crime TV producer puts him on camera in 2015. The goal: to recall the tragedy involving two small-town kids who went missing back in 1980 and what happened a decade later, when the case was fatefully reopened in 1990 following a startling twist.

A Classic Enemy Returns in Thrilling ‘Doctor Who’ New Year’s Day Special (RECAP)

Happy Who Year!

Christmas just didn’t feel right this year without the annual festive Doctor Who episode, but thankfully, the show’s first ever New Year’s Day special is the perfect hangover cure. It’s fun, fast-paced, and at times thrilling; the kind of alien-versus-earth adventure which was sorely missing from season 11. It’s almost hard to believe this is the same Chris Chibnall that wrote the terribly mundane “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos” season finale.

Chibnall intentionally avoided using old-school Who villains in his first season as show-runner. He wanted a fresh start with new characters and new monsters, and while not all of them landed, the idea of establishing a new era of Who was an admirable goal. It’s perhaps that lack of familiarity across ten episodes that helped build anticipation and made the return of the Daleks (or, at least, a Dalek) so exciting.

‘Timeless’ Returns to Say Goodbye in an Emotional Series Finale (RECAP)

[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for the two-part series finale of Timeless, “The Miracle of Christmas.”]

It’s appropriate that the word “miracle” features in the title of the Timeless series finale. The twice-canceled NBC fantasy-drama is the little miracle show. It’s escaped the clutches of death more times than Rufus. Despite all the odds against it, Timeless finds a way to survive, due in large part to the show’s loyal and passionate fanbase. Even though things seemed to be done for good when NBC axed the series (again) back in June, the Clockblockers never gave up hope, and that hope was rewarded with a Christmas gift in the form of a two-part series finale to wrap up all the lingering plots and mysteries.

Hope is something which runs through both installments of “The Miracle of Christmas.” When you’re hopping around in time and altering the course of human

Review: ‘Mrs. Maisel’ returns with more fun … and Paris

The second season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” could easily be called “The Wonderful Mrs. Weismann.”

That’s because Midge’s mom, Rose (Marin Hinkle), gets the spotlight after spending the first season wringing her hands. Tired of her lot in life, she heads to Paris (yup, Paris) and begins a new life that, interestingly, gets a charge out of her husband (Tony Shalhoub), too.

Her daughter (Rachel Brosnahan), meanwhile, finds there’s an audience for female-centric comedy when she hits a stage in Paris and lands more than one joke, thanks to an interpreter.

If season one was about Midge’s rise, season two definitely strikes a blow for other women (and Hinkle, by the way, is fabulous). In the ‘50s-era comedy, they’re not willing to listen to lectures and attend teas. They’re eager to come into their own and, yes, sketch nude men.

Written by Amy Sherman-Palladino, “Mrs. Maisel” has such spunk it deserves a longer run. A handful of episodes? Come on. This season goes from Paris to the Catskills in less time than it takes to get the subway from Manhattan to Coney Island.

While that Catskills visit (later in the season) brings its own surprises, it’s the fresh air of Paris that makes this seem more than just a dalliance. Sure, Brosnahan’s Mrs. Maisel never looks like she’s struggling financially, but she faces the comedy world’s sexism head on and isn’t afraid to call out a few lazy comics.

That sparks a little ire from her manager, Susie (the always delightful Alex Borstein), and gets the tabloids churning. Was Mrs. Maisel more than just friends with Lenny Bruce? Is her husband jealous of her success or embarrassed by his inclusion?

In the first two episodes, Sherman-Palladino tosses out plenty of topics for her characters to discuss and dissect. It’s a “Mad Men” kind of year, but from a different perspective. Midge gets a lot from the women on the switchboard and uses her mother’s strength to fuel her own empowerment.

Later episodes of the first season looked like they were padded for importance. This year, every moment counts – even the ones with Joel (Michael Zegen), her ex, who’s discovering his biggest talents may not be on the same stage as his wife.

He tries to make sense of his mother’s unique bookkeeping system. A side plot involving those Maisels brings their own joys (particularly when Joel starts upsetting the old world order by offering free coffee to workers). It expands the universe and, like the Paris foray, makes this more than just a look at dank comedy clubs in the 1950s.

Although Totie Fields gets a shout-out, the series is still pretty mum on folks like Joan Rivers who, easily, could be a template for Mrs. Maisel.

Brosnahan has the same rapid-fire delivery as Rivers and a penchant for four-letter words. She’d kill with a contemporary routine and could launch a second career if she wanted.

Now, though, she’s like us – wondering how you can sustain something like this with a series of random drop-ins that often rely on a stream of consciousness.

The journey is fascinating. But the day trips are divine.

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” begins streaming Dec. 5 on Amazon.
