60% Animals: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Animals is intriguing, and if you're in the right mood, its leisurely pace and slacker rhythms can pull you in for a while. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Feb 5, 2016
68% Madoff: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Dreyfuss never lets you down when it comes to swagger. Too bad the movie ultimately lets the actor down. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Feb 3, 2016
94% Horace and Pete: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "There's a lot of speechifying, some of it is moving and fascinating, some of it sounding like penny-ante Eugene O'Neill. It's also completely fascinating, and full of really wonderful performances. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Feb 1, 2016
97% The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "This so-called "limited series" takes the facts of the Simpson case and, by bending and shaping the emphases of those facts, turns it into a startlingly stirring critique of racism, sexism, and the judicial system that still resonates today. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

Posted Jan 26, 2016
77% Outsiders: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Outsiders is a big, lusty, overblown production that combines Sons of Anarchy and Justified with Yosemite Sam cartoons, to achieve a lot of bluster, burying good actors in scraggly hair, greasy faces, and tough talk about moonshine and pesky "revenoors." " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jan 26, 2016
69% The Magicians: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Gamble and McNamara give themselves over to the material, recognizing that their job is primarily, initially, to create the textured world Grossman has invented. They succeed, even if some of the performances don't quite do the effort justice. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jan 25, 2016
77% Chelsea Does: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "I found the series irritating because I find Handler funny very rarely. If you're a fan, you'll have a great time, because what this series should be called is Chelsea Does Chelsea. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

68% Baskets: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Instead of being a classic clown -- one whose misfortunes are borne aloft by lighter laughs, and an implicit invitation to identify with his troubles -- Chip Baskets is most often a selfish creep. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jan 20, 2016
56% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "More than any current TV adaptation, Legends of Tomorrow captures the feeling of what it was like to read a DC Comics team-up "special issue" during the Silver Age of comics in the 1960s. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jan 19, 2016
79% War & Peace: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The performances are excellent... Old pros such as Jim Broadbent, Stephen Rea, and Brian Cox are around to lend the soap opera proceedings some gravity. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

67% Teachers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Teachers follows Impastor, The Jim Gaffigan Show, and Younger in TV Land's efforts to attract an audience for more daring comedy than, say, Hot In Cleveland. In this and other senses, it's very much a success. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

50% The Shannara Chronicles: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "A would-be epic about elves, druids, and "rovers," with some magic "elf stones" and a grand quest thrown in there for good measure, The Shannara Chronicles is a lot of hooey with hotsy young actors. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
