C+ 22% Bull: Season 1 (TV, 2016) Bull might offer a cool new tweak to the TV legal drama... but it leaves the tried-and-true CBS blueprint untouched. - TV Line EDIT

92% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Forty-Five: The Stranger (TV Episode) This week's SAT prep storyline might be Season 3's most shocking plot development yet. - TV Line EDIT

97% Star Trek: Discovery: Season 2 - Brother (TV Episode) Tilly, meanwhile, was just as delightful as always... Stamets might want her to "say fewer things," but I don't! - TV Line EDIT

52% Black Monday: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Black Monday already feels like one of those shows where the acting and writing are so sharp that even if an individual episode is subpar, it'll still have two or three priceless one-liners to tide us over. - TV Line EDIT

92% The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 2 (TV, 2017-2018) The Season 2... begins on an exhilarating note. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2018
86% Jersey Shore Family Vacation: Season 1 (TV, 2018) A rare reality series where people are actually allowed to change and evolve, a reliable source of profoundly stupid hi-jinks, and a big-hearted tribute to family and friendship. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2018
B 89% Escape at Dannemora: Miniseries (TV, 2018) Escape at Dannemora rises above the typical prison-break story with humane characterization and excellent acting, especially from Patricia Arquette. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 19, 2018
D 71% Dirty John: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Britton and her talented co-stars are wasted here on a warmed-over Lifetime movie masquerading as a prestige TV miniseries - one that's, sadly, not even trashy enough to qualify as a guilty pleasure. - TV Line EDIT

86% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Thirty-Eight: As Above, So Below (TV Episode) Riverdale keeps coming up with fresh ways to get Archie to take his shirt off. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2018
B+ 98% Homecoming: Season 1 (TV, 2018) It is an awfully good mystery, after all, with each episode lasting just long enough and teasing us just enough to keep us hooked. It's so good, in fact, maybe it'll convince Roberts to make this TV thing a full-time gig. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2018
B+ 91% Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 1 (TV, 2018) Its intoxicating mix of supernatural thrills and deadpan one-liners approaches the heights of Buffy the Vampire Slayer... and I realize that's high praise indeed. - TV Line EDIT

95% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Thirty-Six: Labor Day (TV Episode) A falsely accused Archie learned his fate as Riverdale returned for Season 3... but really, that was just the tip of the WTF iceberg. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2018
100% Better Call Saul: Season 4 - Wiedersehen (TV Episode) Kind of heartbreaking to see Kim excitedly make a "World's Greatest Lawyer Again" travel mug for Jimmy, along with buying him a shiny new legal briefcase, in anticipation of him getting reinstated. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2018
A- 94% Sorry for Your Loss: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Sorry for Your Loss is like a beautifully written sad song: You're not always in the right mood to listen to it... but when you are, it can reach you in places that nothing else can. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2018
B- 56% Happy Together: Season 1 (TV, 2018) The jokes could use some polishing, and the concept could easily grow old in a hurry, but the trio of Wayans, Stevens West and Mallard nudge this one a solid notch above your average network sitcom. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
D 24% The Neighborhood: Season 1 (TV, 2018) A quality cast does its best, but can't salvage the cringe-worthy dialogue and paper-thin characterizations. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
29% Camping: Season 1 (TV, 2018) It's a colossal waste of everyone's time and talent. Cringe humor without the humor is just cringing. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2018
B+ 73% Single Parents: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Genuinely funny network sitcoms are nearing extinction these days, so let's make sure this one sticks around to see Season 2, huh? - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
C+ 65% The Cool Kids: Season 1 (TV, 2018) I'm hoping the mediocre writing can eventually rise to meet the level of the cast, but for now, there are worse ways to spend your Friday nights than with this cozy throwback. - TV Line EDIT

43% Murphy Brown: Season 11 (TV, 1988) [Season 11] isn't exactly subtle about its political leanings. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2018
C 82% The Kids Are Alright: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Michael Cudlitz has a few nice moments as gruff but tenderhearted dad Mike, but ultimately, the show isn't funny or heartwarming enough to overcome how familiar it feels. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
D 31% I Feel Bad: Season 1 (TV, 2018) When it's not burying us in an avalanche of creaky sitcom clichés, it's creeping us out with inappropriate sex jokes. ... All I could think while watching is: They cancelled Great News for this?? - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
93% NewsRadio: Season 1 (TV, 1995-1999) It didn't take long for NewsRadio to get great. - Yahoo! TV EDIT

100% Better Call Saul: Season 4 - Something Stupid (TV Episode) Three weeks in a row now with no Nacho. There's no way this season ends well for him, is there? - TV Line EDIT

100% Inside Amy Schumer: Season 2 (TV, 2013-2016) Schumer's sketches are not only riotously funny, they pack a serious punch, with scathing commentary on how women are viewed and treated in our society. - Yahoo.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2018
68% The First: Season 1 (TV, 2018) It's too much buildup for too little payoff. By the time the series is ready to launch, we're already charting a course for somewhere else. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2018
100% Chappelle's Show: Season 2 (TV, 2003-2006) Chappelle's Show only seems more revolutionary and more iconic in retrospect. It shined brightly, and burned out fast... - TV Line EDIT

100% Better Call Saul: Season 4 - Quite a Ride (TV Episode) The shiny purple shirt Saul was wearing in that opening scene: It was just so Saul, wasn't it? - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2018
76% Kidding: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Kidding gets stuck somewhere between comedy and drama, and isn't entirely successful at either. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
74% Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Until Jack Ryan finds a way to make its drama as compelling as its action scenes, it'll go down as a mission not quite accomplished. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
94% Better Call Saul: Season 4 - Breathe (TV Episode) Interesting that Jimmy and Kim were watching White Heat, which has a famous scene where James Cagney's character freaks out when he learns his mother has died. We're still waiting for that kind of scene from Jimmy... but will we ever see it? - TV Line EDIT

C- 83% Dietland: Season 1 (TV, 2018) I had a hard time digesting... Dietland... because it tries to be three very different shows at once. - TV Line EDIT

100% Killing Eve: Season 1 - God, I'm Tired (TV Episode) A spectacular first season of BBC America's Killing Eve ended with another face-to-face showdown. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted May 29, 2018
C- 61% Arrested Development: Season 5 (TV, 2003-2018) Limping badly out of the gate, the new season is disappointingly lackluster, often awkward, oddly paced... and I just didn't laugh all that much. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted May 29, 2018
100% The Americans: Season 6 - Jennings, Elizabeth (TV Episode) I have to admit, I squealed a bit when I saw Kelly AuCoin (Pastor Tim) listed in the opening credits. This final season is doing a great job of tipping its hat to the entire series. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted May 24, 2018
100% The Americans: Season 6 - The Summit (TV Episode) Six seasons in... Elizabeth is finally starting to have doubts about her homeland... Has she become do dedicated to the Soviet cause that she's lost her humanity? - TV Line EDIT

B 100% Cobra Kai: Season 1 (TV, 2018) It's not easy to get us to sympathize with a prototypical bad dude like Johnny Lawrence, but Cobra Kai pulls it off, thanks to [William] Zabka's prickly charm. - TV Line EDIT

100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Thirty-Two: Prisoners (TV Episode) After all the kidnappings in this week's (particularly bananas) episode of Riverdale, the town's general store might want to order a fresh supply of duct tape. - TV Line EDIT
