One guy's out on 'Girls'

Despite its title, HBO's "Girls" is as much about the coming-of-age of its male characters as it is about the 20-something women at the heart of the story.

Couldn't believe 'The Americans'? Noah Emmerich explains

Shocked fans dropped their jaws Wednesday after watching the latest episode of TV's hottest Cold War spy drama.

We're talking, of course, about the "The Americans" - FX's new series about Soviet spies living in the U.S. in the '80s. Words like "nuts," "crazy" and "crossed the line" were just a few that popped up on the show's Facebook fan page.
