2/5 53% The Ranch: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Though the cast is appealing, the jokes and foibles just aren't fresh enough to wring a lot of laughs from its audience, who probably won't be able to shake the feeling that we've seen these characters and heard these jokes before. " ‐ Common Sense Media

4/5 100% Recovery Road: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Teen-alcoholic redemption tales were 1970s afterschool special staples, but this wise, realistic drama is too smart to try to wrap up its main character's issues in a two-hour-with-commercials movie. " ‐ Common Sense Media
Posted Jan 20, 2016
3/5 92% Angie Tribeca: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Spoofing police procedurals is hardly a new idea, but this show's joke-a-minute approach yields fruit (and laughs), anchored as it is by sharp actors, good writing, and a parade of guest stars. " ‐ Common Sense Media
