Lana Del Rey revisits old themes, sound in ‘Honeymoon’

Lana Del Rey is one of those avant-garde noir singers who confuses her listeners as much as she entertains them. Bolstering her carefully constructed persona of old school Hollywood glamour with her smoky, ’60s-era vocals, Del Rey combines rich, dramatic sound with a compelling narrative of the American experience. In her new album, “Honeymoon,” released Sept. 18, the singer […]


‘The Night Shift’ disappoints with subpar characterization and plot development

“The Night Shift”(2014-present) is NBC’s lackluster shot at a medical drama. Set in a hospital in San Antonio, Texas, the show is a mix of comedy and drama, but it is heavier on the dramatic elements. The first season of “The Night Shift” had a weak start, with subpar characterization and not much plot; however, […]

‘Scandal’ returns, heavy on character and light on plot

One of fall’s most highly anticipated TV shows is back. “Scandal” (2012-present) is a key part of ABC’s Thursday night lineup. The show’s season four premiere returns with the twists and turns that mark every episode of the series. Season three left the gang on a cliffhanger, as Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) left the country with her beau, Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) in […]


New drama ‘Sleepy Hollow’ delivers twists

“Sleepy Hollow” is a new mystery drama from Fox with dashes of horror, fantasy and comedy all thrown in for good measure. Set in the village of Sleepy Hollow, the show has an intriguing premise: one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Death, has risen again, and is terrorizing the present-day town’s population with […]
