Chihuly Garden Installations

Even if you are not a fan of glass as an art form, it's hard to see how you cannot be somewhat awed by the work of glass master Dale Chihuly. If you've looked at glass before, it's probably been on a smaller scale, and perhaps whimsical, so hard to take seriously. But many of Chihuly's works are massive in scale, larger than a person, and are exhibited in scenes around the world like the Phoenix Botanical Gardens, where we took these photos. If you see his works at an outdoor exhibition, like one of these forthcoming exhibits, try going at night, when the works are lit up and especially beautiful. But any time of day they can be awe inspiring. His works can also be seen in books such as this one, which give you some idea of the art, but we recommend seeing them in person if possible.

Big Love

This is the kind of series that could have been so cliché, about a Mormon family living in Utah. But because of the excellent writing and directing, it's truly original and generally excellent. What do Entourage, Big Love, and Breaking Bad have in common? All take men who could easily be – and usually are – caricatures; a drug dealer, a big wheel entertainment agent, and a man with multiple wives – and provide nuanced views of masculinity. Instead of being a leach, Ben Henrickson of Big Love is a loving and hard working family man who genuinely believes in the principles of polygamy. read more

Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad takes a mostly ludicrous scenario – a high school chemistry teacher becomes a big time meth dealer - and turns it into a seemingly plausible drama. Bryan Cranston is great playing Walter White, who evolves from a mostly good man who gets into drug dealing into a ruthless dark character who loves the game too much to quit, even when it costs him everything that he really values. The addiction that is dramatized here is not really one of drugs, but of love of the high that comes from engaging in a high risk, high reward type activity like dealing. read more

Mad Men

Next new episode is April 5, 2015 on AMC. Everyone in the creative class has heard of Mad Men, the 60's based drama about Don Draper and his cohorts in advertising. Why has it been such a success? How few dramas really focus on normal office work, like this one, in a serious way? Most dramas are about cops, or drug dealers, or fireman, or English lords. But this one manages to create drama around a fairly ordinary business like advertising, and that’s not easy to do. And like many successful dramas, this one revolves around a basically good man that has more than this share of flaws and failings, expertly played by Jon Hamm. The supporting cast is great, and Christina Hendricks has done more her part in bringing into vogue the idea that sexy women don’t have to be pencil thin. read more

The Affair

There are a million TV dramas about married couples having affairs, so what makes this one different? First of all, it’s intelligent and thoughtful, but still has plenty of drama. Stars Dominic West who did a great job playing McNulty on The Wire. The man who is cheating on his wife is not a serial cheater, and the woman who is cheating on her husband is not in the habit either. read more

Homeland

The CIA takes the fight against terrorism to the world. One of the best TV dramas ever, and a rare case of killing off the first star (Damian Lewis playing Nicholas Brody) and continuing just as strong as ever (now staring Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison). Much like The Wire, it shows the wild mix of motivations that is present in real life – a genuine desire to do good, greed, ambition, ideology – and how often it's pointless to try to engineer certain outcome given the unpredictability of the world. read more
