Posted Feb 2, 2016
68% Madoff: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Dreyfuss is sensational as Madoff, a twinkle in his eye as he explains his "magic." He's a likable scoundrel at first, playing with his grandkids, reassuring his wife. The depths of his lying, his chutzpah, is almost beyond belief. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Feb 2, 2016
97% American Crime: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "American Crime returns... with a fresh story and relevant concerns probing a range of American blind spots. The topical, Emmy-nominated anthology on ABC continues to feel like an artful work of premium cable. " ‐ Denver Post

Posted Oct 26, 2015
91% Louie: Season 5 (TV, 2015) "Equal parts pathetic and heroic, detached and wonderfully vulnerable, Louie keeps us guessing. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Oct 21, 2015
92% Manhattan: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Things heat up (literally) in the second hour with Justin Kirk in a guest role. The increasingly engrossing first four episodes move through D-Day. " ‐ Denver Post

91% Homeland: Season 5 (TV, 2015) "After some credibility problems in past seasons, Homeland hits the reset button Sunday on Showtime - and it works. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Oct 9, 2015
100% Fargo: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Despite its endlessly flat landscape, FX's Fargo is elevated by the most spellbinding direction of any drama currently on TV. Season 2 achieves new heights, thanks to writer-director Noah Hawley. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Oct 9, 2015
78% The Daily Show With Trevor Noah: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Change isn't easy, but this week Trevor Noah proved more than up to the task of carrying forward The Daily Show. " ‐ Denver Post

59% Scream Queens: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "If you enjoy the fright of horror only when undercut by laughs, Scream Queens may be for you. For many, sampling the pilot will be enough. " ‐ Denver Post

Posted Sep 9, 2015
100% Deutschland 83: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The clunky '80s spy technology is riveting. The locations in and around Berlin add visual interest. Nay's cool, understated performance is a plus. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Aug 31, 2015

Posted Aug 21, 2015
97% Show Me a Hero: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Simon offers a challenging six-hour miniseries that contains social and political echoes of The Wire but that feels amazingly topical, too, given recent events in Ferguson, Mo.; Baltimore; and Charleston, S.C. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Aug 17, 2015
59% Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Unlike the variously overweight and past-their-prime stars of some male menopause efforts, Leary brings a certain aging appeal to the role. " ‐ Denver Post

Posted May 11, 2015
86% Wayward Pines: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The cast is superlative, the run is limited. The appeal as a light summer pastime is clear. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted May 1, 2015
30% Happyish: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The half-hour Happyish premiering tonight proves there is such a thing as comedy too dark to qualify as tragicomedy or even dramedy. It ends up being merely a sad, pretentious piece of work, desperate to be taken seriously. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Apr 26, 2015
100% Silicon Valley: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "There's comedy gold in the lack of people skills among the geeks who are unprepared for the kind of success the tech boom can generate. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Apr 20, 2015
97% Wolf Hall: Series 1 (TV, 2015) "Gorgeous, high-minded, beautifully acted and sluggish, it may be a stretch for those more accustomed to the Olivia Pope-Doug Stamper-Ray Donovan versions of fixers. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Apr 6, 2015
58% The Comedians: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Like the two stars, the series is endearing, loud and desperate for attention, but ultimately a love letter to comedy and comedy history. " ‐ Denver Post

24% The Odd Couple: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The casting is more intriguing than the jokes are funny. It remains to be seen whether the remake succeeds on its own or is just a curiosity for devotes of the earlier adaptation. " ‐ Denver Post
Posted Feb 12, 2015
65% The Slap: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The cast is inviting... But the too-prominent, overly obvious voice-over narrator is a truly awful innovation. " ‐ Denver Post

Posted Jan 30, 2015
