But, delightfully, two of fall’s best new dramas. “The Flash” and “Jane the Virgin,” are running creative laps around their grimmer competitors by demonstrating that the conflicts produced by good intentions are just as gripping as the misdeeds of people who conceal their worst selves rather than conquering them.

  • Will serious fare freeze out feel-good films this season? Nov 23, 2014 6:30 AM
    One of the paradoxes of holiday films is that they often have little to do with peace and good will toward men, or any other gender.

  • Consider pumpkin spice — then skip it Nov 22, 2014 5:30 AM
    With autumn upon us, some turn morbid in our thinking. Maybe it’s that defiant blaze of leaf-color before the inevitable rot.

Or maybe it’s just all the darn pumpkin spice.
