Hell on Wheels: The Complete Third Season DVD
No one makes engaging drama about the people who built the first British railways, do they? No, we just get documentaries about it on BBC4 presented by men in cardigans. Did the British railway pioneers spend half their time shooting folk, throwing back sippin' whisky and frequenting mobile brothels? Probably not, and anyway, no one wants to see them do it.

If you've got a spare half-hour, here's two Letterman appearances, 22 years apart. I haven't laughed so much in weeks.

There was much rejoicing today as a picture from Cuckoo's second season revealed that Taylor Lautner looks an absolute weapon with a beard. As long as he doesn't take his shirt off we've got one over on him, lads.

Period detail on new Boardwalk Empire not what it was
They've got the clothes out of storage again but the cost of rebuilding the sets was a bit toppy so they just shot it in the car park.

Masters of Sex: The Complete First Season DVD
You can imagine the pitch meeting for Masters Of Sex: "It's like Mad Men – but with boobs!" Whilst it's not an entirely inaccurate description – there's lots of attractive people in fabulous period costumes, smoking, slow-burning plots aplenty and, yes, boobs (not to mention a never-ending parade of other body parts, both male and female) – it's very much its own show. For a start, at no point in Mad Men does anyone brandish a dildo called Ulysses, although Don could probably do one hell of an ad campaign for it.

Ray Donovan acting class: how to demonstrate range by standing
You've got it all here: Eddie Marsan's threatening sideways lean, Jon Voight's insouciant turn askance, Liev Schrieber's straightahead hands-in-pockets furrowed look, Pooch Hall's lean with added gangsta hands, and Dash Mihok's unaccountable leg-spreading. There's not a male character archetype in the entire acting gamut that isn't covered by one of these stances. (I managed five episodes.)

"This is unprecedented," a geek told us on hearing the news that Lucy Lawless is to guest-star on Agents of SHIELD season two. "Like all my Christmases come at once. Oh God you've put up a picture of her with Seven Of Nine off Voyager oh God OH GOD." He died later that day.

The bastards at Terminus have beaten him so bad, his moustache has slipped off his upper lip and into his mouth. Animals.
