Showtime Offers Preview of "The Tudors"

Curious about the upcoming costume drama The Tudors, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Sam Neill, Jeremy Northam, Henry Czerny, Henry Cavill, and Callum Blue? (Or just looking for your next historical fix with the conclusion of Rome nearly upon us?)

Showtime has created a VIP preview of their new bodices-and-battles drama, The Tudors (premiering April 1 at 10 pm on the pay cabler), but you can catch a sneak peak at, not one, but two upcoming episodes from the luxe period drama now.

The two-episode preview can be found here and, fittingly enough, the password is the word "king."

Oh and a word to the wise: The Tudors features the kind of, er, atmosphere you might find on Rome or Deadwood, so I wouldn't try watching this at work. Unless of course, you happen to work in a Henry VIII-style workplace where anything goes and sex, betrayals, and beheadings are the watchwords of the day.

In which case, go crazy.

I think I will wait for the premiere, which I am attending. :)

Wanna go?
Wow! Stellar cast. I'll definitely have to check out the previews. Maybe this will fill the gaping hole that will be left when Rome finishes.

I wish it was on HBO, as I no longer have Showtime. However, I don't think it could fill the hole (in my heart anyway) that will be left when Rome finishes up. It's a great show that should have gone on a lot longer.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it
