'Mad Men' star Hamm ditches suave for macabre in 'Young Doctor'

By Lisa Richwine LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Jon Hamm's new TV role takes him far from the stylish 1960s Madison Avenue setting of "Mad Men" to a dreary, isolated and bloody hospital in a small Russian village during the 1917 revolution. The backdrop for "A Young Doctor's Notebook," a four-episode series that makes its U.S. debut on Wednesday on the Ovation cable network, is not a typical one for television, and the show does not fit neatly into a particular genre. Hamm said he liked the project for both of those reasons. "It's dark, and yet it's quite comic," Hamm told Reuters. ...

'Breaking Bad' may be over, but Albuquerque businesses hope their high lasts
By Tim Gaynor (Reuters) - As fans readied to see how chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin Walter White would meet his end in the tense finale of "Breaking Bad" on Sunday night, one Albuquerque donut maker had a rush of customers on her hands. "It was insane," said Carrie Mettling, the co-owner of the city's Rebel Donut chain, which sold $10,000 worth of its blue frosted and crystal rock candy-slathered "blue sky" donuts in the hours before showtime.

Review: Panasonic TX-32AS500
Introduction Is this 32-inch HD-ready TV worth the upgrade? With a list price of £399 but spotted online for £309 already, this brand new effort looks almost identical to Panasonic's TX-32A400 , which also includes a Freeview HD tuner.

This is the third incarnation of what many people regard as a crazy piece of marketing, but does the 55-inch UE55HU8200 represent a bona fide product category? We know the arguments against.

Its bigscreen TVs were better than anyone else's ? just see our reviews for proof of that ? but sales were presumably poor. In 2014 it's now competing, not with picture quality, (the 32-inch TX-32AS600 is merely average judged on on-screen images) but with apps and usability. The TX ...
