What do Vikings, espionage, bobsleds and Matthew McConoughey have in common? All are staff picks for TV and Video this month!
Vikings, Season 1 – Blend of anthropology, myth, and realism.
The Honorable Woman – Television series featuring Maggie Gyllenhaal. Spy thriller set in the Middle East.
Cool Runnings – Jamaican bobsled team at the Olympics–what more needs to be said?! Fun family movie.
True Detective – a well-paced southern detective show that is as seedy as it is suspenseful. While the plot pays off in dividends it may be the characters that make this worth watching. Matthew McConoughey and Woody Harrelson do excellent work and deserve all the accolades they have received for this show.
