This is it! The Season One and/or possibly series finale of the bildungsroman that taught us to embrace the cold war, break out our Walkmans, and sprechen sie deutsch. Will we get that Star Wars moment we've been pining for?
It's the final day of the Mad Men props auction! To the studio, it's trash... but to fans, it's treasure. But be warned, you'll have to pay a king's ransom for it.
Ryan Seacrest's latest brainchild is stillborn. Turns out Americans only like to watch celebrities humiliate themselves on TV, not random schmoes off the streets. Good for us, I guess?
Party time! Why yes, it is a dark and gritty and morose party filled with existentially tortured individuals delving into sex and violence while twisting in the wind of despair. How did you know?
Our True Detective recap marathon continues with sexual harassment, shocking twists, and a whole lot of bickering over personal finances.

Last week Martin saved his mother's life. This week he tries to save the world, only nobody will listen to him. It's the second to last recap of Deutschland 83's inaugural season!
It's day three of our True Detective marathon! We last left Colin Ferrell in a bloody heap with shotgun wounds all over his body, but don't worry nothing comes of that. Also, there's lots of police investigation stuff, but nothing comes of that either. Not coming is also a major theme.
Our True Detective Season 2 marathon continues with a recap a day until we catch up. This week, proof that guns don't kill people. Or at least not people whose names appear in the opening credits. Better luck next time, bird-face!

Season 1 of Wayward Pines ends with both a bang and a whimper. The human race at the height of its power and technology couldn't stop the rise of the mutant aberrations, but they can't handle one unfrozen dude with one backpack of C4? Bulls#*t.
Apparently the secret to staying alive in Deutschland 83 is not to be remotely competent at the whole spying thing, because those who are keep sacrificing themselves for those who aren't. More death, betrayal, and prostitutes in this week's recap.
YouTube now has more viewers in the demo than any cable network and is raking in $4 billion a year... and yet can't make a profit. How is that possible?
How the hell did it take three seasons for Tatiana Maslany to get her first Emmy nomination? Sister should be holding all six nods for all six characters. Only HNTP has an inside look at how the whole Clone Club is celebrating.
Rejoice stay-at-home parents and unemployed slackers and sick day takers everywhere! Regis has heard your prayers and accendeth once again to your TV to sit at the right hand of Kathie Lee.
After finally getting his wife and ex-tootsie on the same page, Ethan discovers they don't call them “mad” scientists for nothing. And there's something to that "children of the damned" phrase, too. The penultimate Wayward Pines recap has arrived.
Ingrid's health takes a turn for the worse. Will Martin make it back in time to save her? Alex makes a bold, but not unexpected decision. So does Annett. Grab your German-to-English dictionary, because it’s Week 5 of Deutschland 83.
Mr. Robot raises deep questions about public identity and truth... questions one Mr. Christian Slater seems to have been toying with throughout his career. And now HNTP is asking the one existential question at the heart of it all: Does Christian Slater himself actually exist?
“While it isn’t the worst concept for an episode ever, it’s still not winning fan love, twelve years after it aired. Okay, so maybe some fans love it, but this fan cringes over the existence of it.”
With the demise of American Idol, FOX has a new singing competition in the works... with a direct tie-in to "Empire."
