3/4 100% It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 9 (TV, 2005-2019) This season's early episodes do their job by offering up what the fans want --The Gang doing horrible things and acting crazy... Who knows how long "It's Always Sunny" will run, but its legacy is strong and doesn't show signs of lessening. - Columbus Alive EDIT

3/4 94% It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 6 (TV, 2005-2019) Last season was a terrific collection of episodes for the gang. The first four episodes of Season 6 are almost as good... I'm happy to report that "Sunny" is still one of the funniest comedies on television. - Columbus Alive EDIT

3/4 77% Onion News Network: Season 1 (TV, 2011) While the "anchors," "correspondents" and "reporters" are pitch-perfect in mocking cable news personalities, the segments are uneven. Some fall flat while others are utterly hilarious. - Columbus Alive EDIT

2/5 95% Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey: Season 1 (TV, 2014) Rebooting Carl Sagan's original series, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage from 1980, with Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is an interesting idea. Unfortunately, the execution doesn't match the concept. - Columbus Alive EDIT

2/4 69% Spartacus: Gods of the Arena: Season 1 (TV, 2011) While my inner 14-year-old boy was more than pleased by these camptastic attributes, "Gods of the Arena" can only be viewed as the guiltiest of pleasures. - Columbus Alive EDIT

9% Outlaw: Season 1 (TV, 2010) Not only is "Outlaw" legally absurd and completely devoid of reality, but the acting is dreadful. Later! - Columbus Alive EDIT

81% Lone Star: Season 1 (TV, 2010) Fox's "Lone Star" has so many good things going for it that it'll either change the landscape of network television or get canceled in its first season. - Columbus Alive EDIT

1.5/5 40% Nick Swardson's Pretend Time: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011) Obviously, Pretend Time is filled with very low-brow, raunchy humor -- which is usually funny in Swardson's hands. But here, the punch lines are predictable and the clever use of crudeness from Grandma's Boy is mostly absent. - Columbus Alive EDIT

92% Andy Barker, P.I.: Season 1 (TV, 2007) It's all insane and unrealistic, and it contributes to the zany fun. - Columbus Alive EDIT

95% The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst: Season 1 (TV, 2015) The Jinx literally became transcendent in the final half, with each episode ending in such a compelling and unbelievable fashion. - Columbus Alive EDIT

2.5/4 44% Californication: Season 7 (TV, 2007-2014) If you've been a Californication viewer/fan over the years, you should see how it ends. It'll never be as great as it once was, but there is a conclusion here, even if I would've liked it to be stronger and more focused. - Columbus Alive EDIT
