91% Michael Jackson's Journey From Motown to Off the Wall "Lee keeps his celebration smart and not soppy. He gets you excited, makes you feel the moment, see what was new in it, why it mattered. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 5, 2016
92% Angie Tribeca: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Is this sort of silliness what the world needs now? (Police Squad!, notably, was a flop.) I don't know, but I watched 10 episodes in short order with no ill effects and some pleasure. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 4, 2016
97% The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "As producer and sometimes director, Murphy keeps the production pretty level-headed -- not documentary naturalism, exactly, but close enough for respect. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 2, 2016
94% Horace and Pete: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Even at its most obvious or ungainly, it's never less than interesting, and it's certainly not shy of conviction; no C.K. fan with an Internet connection and $5 to spare will want to pass it by. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 1, 2016
77% Outsiders: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Wright's performance is one of the show's greater pleasures. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 26, 2016
49% Lucifer: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Indeed, the mysteries are almost beside the point; your mileage will vary precisely based on how you like the leads. Take it for a spin. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 25, 2016
77% Chelsea Does: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "[Handler's] brassiness does make her interesting, and makes her a good interviewer. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 25, 2016
62% Mad Dogs: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The truth-telling gets a little repetitious, a little annoying, a little dull; there are only so many bandages you can rip off to reveal other bandages you can rip off to get down to the skin you can peel back to get down to the bone. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 22, 2016
68% Baskets: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Not unusually, the show gathers depth and delicacy with time and context and as characters come into focus and into different configurations. Down to the smallest speaking part, the actors are well cast and unusually believable. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 21, 2016
79% War & Peace: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "As an expression of what lies beyond, above and below the mixed-up affairs of men, nature matters very much here. If that isn't clear, if you can't feel it, the bottom falls out of the story. But the bottom stays put. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 19, 2016
88% Idiotsitter: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "For all the self-protective aggressiveness and passive aggressiveness on display, Idiotsitter is tender at its core and toward its characters; it stands up for education and for paying attention. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 14, 2016
30% Second Chance: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "When it tries to go deep or dark, it feels overwritten and overwrought; as light entertainment, it's passably diverting, not without charm. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 13, 2016
67% Teachers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's worth investing in a few episodes to get used to the milieu and the music; though the humor stays rough, the show feels sunnier as the company grows more familiar. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 13, 2016
78% Killing Fields: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's the smaller, unvarnished, passing moments that sell the show - where its particular poetry, and even its comedy, can be found. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 6, 2016
50% The Shannara Chronicles: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Moving pictures require something different; messianic folderol is best served there with a little sex, and a little seltzer.That has been provided. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 6, 2016
50% Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "As it goes on, the show becomes less of a bro-fest, a bro-stock, a bro-achella and more of a balanced coed ensemble comedy. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 4, 2016
76% The Expanse: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Expanse is an engaging, sometimes exciting 23rd-century political thriller, detective show and space opera that rings some of the same thematic and stylistic bells as Syfy's former flagship Battlestar Galactica without feeling like a retread. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Dec 14, 2015
69% Childhood's End: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's not the stuff of which three-night, basic-cable, television-event miniseries are made. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Dec 14, 2015
0% The Ridiculous 6 "The jokes are often juvenile and gross, unsophisticated and insensitive, but one does not wish to strike juvenility or grossness or even insensitivity outright from the comic tool kit; these just aren't all that good. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Dec 14, 2015
63% Telenovela: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Telenovela, starring Eva Longoria as a Miami-based soap star, is a happy one: appealing, sweet, witty, traditional in its bones, modern in its complexion. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Dec 7, 2015
60% Jim Henson's Turkey Hollow "Overall, this is smart, solid whole-family entertainment, modest in its ambitions yet far above the run of made-for-TV holiday yuck you will be offered in the weeks ahead. And it has puppets. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 30, 2015
54% Superstore: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It can be at cross purposes tonally, sending mixed messages; it seems to condescend to its milieu and people even as it explicitly warns against condescension. I might call that "lifelike," but it also feels unfocused and unformed. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 30, 2015
28% The Art of More: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's... a melodrama in which nothing really matters but "Is he going to shoot?" and "Are they going to kiss?" And it doesn't matter that much. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 19, 2015
53% Into the Badlands: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The show is not much for humor... This will suit viewers who like their maiming and killing straight, who prefer their post-apocalypse untainted by irony. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 17, 2015
88% W/ Bob and David: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "There is a sweetness about it, a ripeness, a sense of fate, an air not quite autumnal but late-summery, let's say, that adds piquancy to the japery. Time is woven into its fabric. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 13, 2015
75% Highston: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "An imaginary friends comedy in which the imagined friends are real celebrities, it has something of the whimsical pictorial formality of a Wes Anderson picture, and a shared love for the weirdo and the whimsical. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 6, 2015
89% One Mississippi: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The show, which allows itself small, sweet excursions into magic realism, is best when Notaro, one of our great comics, talks longest. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 6, 2015
56% Z: The Beginning of Everything: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Notwithstanding the odd exhalation out of Gone With the Wind by way of Tennessee Williams... this feels unusually on-point and un-mannered for an American period piece. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 6, 2015
71% Good Girls Revolt: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The production is comically hyperbolic, the dialogue power-point pointed, and for a show at least partly about journalism, it's oddly careless with details. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 6, 2015
57% Patriot: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "There are funny little grace notes in the dialogue that make this more compelling to me than its premise or action ordinarily would. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 6, 2015
13% Edge: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The bodies pile up, and blow up, and it is just a big bloody mess, with a lot -- a lot, really a lot -- of collateral damage about which no one involved, on-screen or behind it, seems much bothered. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 6, 2015
100% Master of None: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "There are sitcom and rom-com tropes, to be sure, but more often than not the series plays with your expectations in order to subvert them. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 5, 2015
91% The Late Show With Stephen Colbert: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Stephen Colbert, late of The Colbert Report, became (only) the second host of CBS' Late Show, created for David Letterman in 1993. And it was good, it was very, very good. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 3, 2015
100% The Returned: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "It's beautiful and mysterious and sad and plays its game close to its chest - a series to get lost in, if you can stand the chills, and the heat, and don't mind reading subtitles (if you don't speak French). " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 2, 2015
98% Ash vs. Evil Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Let us now praise Bruce Campbell, the strong-chinned star of The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness and now Ash vs Evil Dead, which splendidly, even triumphantly converts the comedy-horror movie franchise into a TV series. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 2, 2015
16% Wicked City: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Apart from some subtle work by Christensen, the series doesn't have much of interest to offer or fresh to say. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 27, 2015
No Score Yet Mary Tyler Moore: A Celebration (2015) "Even including commentary from many old castmates - this is a thinner, flimsier piece than her work and her place in history demand, content to skim the surface with only an occasional glance into deeper water. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 13, 2015
100% Fargo: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "What distinguishes Fargo from most other contemporary cable crime series - and much of the modern literature of heroes and villains - is that its good guys are so fundamentally good. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 12, 2015
81% Red Oaks: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) "The older characters hear a ticking clock... as the younger ones wake to new experiences. It gives the series a half-melancholy air of precious, fleeting life that makes the series something greater than its parts, and very much worth the binge. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 8, 2015
68% Grandfathered: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Though the pilot hits some of the expected beats - don't muss my pants, baby with dirty hands - it doesn't revel in the comedy of discomfiture common to such stories. It doesn't artificially harden Jimmy's heart just to melt it. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 29, 2015
93% The Grinder: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It has emotional truth, let's call it, and it plays well. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 29, 2015
78% The Daily Show With Trevor Noah: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "[Noah] is charming and composed - almost inevitably low-key compared with the habitually antic and astonished Stewart. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 29, 2015
62% Blood & Oil: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It has the aggressively prettified look, rather, of an ad for beer or a new Ford truck, and you sense that you are being sold something, rather than told a story, let alone the truth. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 28, 2015
83% Quantico: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "If hardly a moment feels plausible, the show has energy to spare and so many balls in the air by the end of the pilot that it's hard not to want to see where they will come down. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 28, 2015
95% Empire: Season 2 (TV, 2015-2016) "For all the switchback plotting, the sudden revelations that bring some earlier plot or plotline to naught, the show never feels too obviously manipulative or out of control. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 23, 2015
7% Rosewood: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Rosewood just wants you to watch pretty people solve murders in a subtropical setting, with just enough business attached to hang a long arc on or whip up a season-finale cliffhanger, if it gets to that. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 23, 2015
64% The Muppets: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It is as clever and well constructed as many series whose casts are entirely human (and an improvement on the pilot, released to the press early in the summer). " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 22, 2015
63% Life in Pieces: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Even at its most outrageous, Life in Pieces feels padded with foam. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 21, 2015
31% Moonbeam City: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "I rather liked it, though for its form possibly more than for its content. (Note: Subsequent episodes improve on the pilot.) " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 17, 2015
100% American Experience: Season 27 Episode 8 "What director Sarah Colt and writer Mark Zwonitzer do especially well here is to make these things feel fresh and exhilarating. They take you back to a time when cartoons were still marvelous, wonderful, amazing, astonishing and even awesome. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
