Anna Paquin joins The Affair for a final season time jump
The True Blood alum will play Alison and Cole’s now-adult daughter, Joanie Lockhart, on the fifth and final season of the Showtime series. A portion of Season 5 will jump in time two to three decades into the future for Paquin's scenes. Joanie was last seen on The Affair as a 5-year-old, while Paquin is 36. According to TVLine, "Paquin’s Joanie returns to a climate-change ravaged Montauk to piece together the truth about what happened to her late mother (played by former cast member Ruth Wilson), bringing The Affair‘s five-season narrative full circle." Paquin last year starred on the Netflix miniseries Alias Grace. She recently filmed the Pop TV limited series Flack, playing a London-based U.S. publicity maven.

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams goes hand in hand with Black Mirror

Amazon's 10-part anthology series starring such big names as Bryan Cranston, Anna Paquin and Steve Buscemi has been referred to as the streaming service’s answer to Black Mirror. “Stylistically and philosophically, though, they’re a binary set,” says Spencer Kornhaber. “Electric Dreams is televisually muddy next to Black Mirror’s austere confidence, but it has an emotional generosity that the Netflix series lacks, serving up plenty of happy endings with twists that are more conventional. Of greater note are the contrasts in the shows’ thematic emphases. Electric Dreams usually insists that the tyranny of the collective is the urgent concern. Black Mirror is often a fantasy of individualism taken too far. The dystopian drama most apt for 2018 might be a synthesis of the two.” ALSO: Some episodes are real gems, while other feel overly familiar.
