100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Nineteen: Death Proof (TV Episode) Anybody else notice Fred popping a few too many pain pills this week? Don't pull a Kevin-on-This Is Us, Fred!‐ TV Line

72% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Into the Forest I Go (TV Episode) I'll say it again: Never make plans for the future on a TV drama. It always leads to bad things.‐ TV Line

B+ 92% The Deuce: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The Deuce seems to understand that this is an era you wouldn't want to live through again, but can still be a pleasure to observe - from a safe distance.‐ TV Line

C- 75% Get Shorty: Season 1 (TV, 2017) You almost wish these actors could reunite in a different project that could offer them some fresh storytelling... and not be tethered to a reboot that exactly no one was clamoring for.‐ TV Line

B 63% Kevin (Probably) Saves the World: Season 1 (TV, 2017) At least it has the courage to be proudly, defiantly weird. ‐ TV Line

D 21% The Orville: Season 1 (TV, 2017) While it might be fun for MacFarlane to run around shooting phasers and playing Captain Kirk, it's not much fun to watch. Because it doesn't work as comedy. It doesn't work as sci-fi. It just doesn't work at all.‐ TV Line

100% Great News: Season 2 (TV, 2018) Most things get significantly better when you add Tina Fey to them. So it makes sense that adding the 30 Rock alum to the Season 2 cast of NBC's Great News takes an already-fun sitcom and elevates it about a bazillion notches.‐ TV Line

B- 94% The Sinner: Miniseries (TV, 2017) This is a great acting showcase for Biel, who drops the makeup and disappears into a difficult, haunted character.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2017
D- 21% Disjointed: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) You know how they say smoking marijuana can make anything funny? Well, whoever said that never watched Netflix's appallingly bad new weed-com Disjointed. Because it would take a tractor-trailer full of ganja to make this mess tolerable.‐ TV Line

D 51% I'm Dying Up Here: Season 1 (TV, 2017) You might think that a show about stand-up comedians would, you know, make you laugh a time or two. But ... morose, cliché-riddled new drama I'm Dying Up Here ... is more likely to make you hate yourself, everyone around you and humanity in general.‐ TV Line

C- No Score Yet Love Connection: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The new reboot ... turns out to be the TV equivalent of a hot-pink leotard stuffed full of floppy disks.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
C+ 58% Snowfall: Season 1 (TV, 2017) There's an intriguing, vibrant story at the heart of FX's new drama Snowfall. Unfortunately, there are also two other, less interesting stories that come along with it -- and the show ends up OD'ing on an excess of ambition.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2017
D 60% Midnight, Texas: Season 1 (TV, 2017) An overstuffed, often ridiculous supernatural drama that somehow manages to make a town filled with magical creatures seem crushingly dull.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2017
A- 79% Claws: Season 1 (TV, 2017) There's a scene in the second episode of TNT's Claws that sums up this wildly inventive, delightfully surprising show: a funeral unlike any you've ever seen.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
B 83% Genius: Season 1 (TV, 2017) It feels like the producers didn't trust that we would pay attention to Genius without some blood and nudity thrown in. But we would, actually, thanks to the stellar performances from Rush and Flynn. ‐ TV Line

91% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Seventeen: The Town That Dreaded Sundown (TV Episode) Not enough Cheryl this season. Need more Cheryl.‐ TV Line

86% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Fifteen: Nighthawks (TV Episode) Cool to see comics mainstay Midge make her Riverdale debut. Bummer that she died. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
88% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Fourteen: A Kiss Before Dying (TV Episode) Folks, we've got a bona fide serial killer on the loose. Season 2, you officially have my attention.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
B+ 92% Big Little Lies: Miniseries (TV, 2017) The great thing about Big Little Lies is: The murder is almost beside the point. The vicious battle for power and status waged between the Monterey moms is gripping enough, and serves as a showcase for some fantastic female performances.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2017
94% This Is Us: Season 2 (TV, 2017) Sure, we wanted to know how Jack died... but we didn't want to find out like this. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
B 91% Feud: Bette and Joan (TV, 2017) The two [stars] shine so brightly at times that we can hardly see all the other flaws.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2017
100% Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 3 (TV, 2017) I like the new Rebecca-Nathaniel dynamic.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2017
B 92% Making History: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The high-concept premise and serialized storytelling actually remind me of NBC's The Good Place, which steadily improved over the course of its freshman season to become one of TV's boldest comedies. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2017
D 81% When We Rise: Miniseries (TV, 2016-2017) The struggle for gay rights in America is absolutely a piece of history we should all learn. It's too bad, then, that ABC's bloated, self-serious miniseries When We Rise is such a slog to get through.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2017
D+ 23% Friends From College: Season 1 (TV, 2017) I honestly can't remember a show that squanders a talented cast as thoroughly as Netflix's new comedy Friends From College does. It's borderline criminal.‐ TV Line

B+ 83% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 (TV, 2017) Breathe a sigh of relief, Star Trek fans: Discovery comes out of the gate at warp speed and oozes with storytelling potential.‐ TV Line

100% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad (TV Episode) Well, that was a fun little brain-bender of a Star Trek: Discovery episode, wasn't it? (Harry Mudd plus a repeating time loop is a pretty reliable formula for quality, after all.)‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2017
81% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Choose Your Pain (TV Episode) Rainn Wilson [is] fantastic as Harry Mudd. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2017
88% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry (TV Episode) Burnham's now a full member of the Discovery crew, with a uniform and everything.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2017
B+ 85% I Love Dick: Season 1 (TV, 2016) A sexually frank and intellectually challenging comedy that, most importantly, gives Kathryn Hahn the leading role she's long deserved.‐ TV Line

100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.0_Power-Saver-Mode.H (TV Episode) Bam! Just like that, the power snaps back on.‐ TV Line

D- 21% Man With a Plan: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) In the words of Joey himself: "Why, God, why?"‐ TV Line

100% Better Call Saul: Season 3 - Witness (TV Episode) It was nice to see Jimmy and Mike share the same scene for once, wasn't it?‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2017
A- 85% Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life (TV, 2017) Netflix's revival of the beloved family dramedy is perfectly timed TV comfort food - a faithful reproduction of the quirky, cozy vibe we fell in love with. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2016
C- 69% Good Girls Revolt: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) It's a lot of money spent in service of a show that's not very good.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2016
B+ 100% Transparent: Season 3 (TV, 2016) Tambor's dry wit and openhearted vulnerability shine through and help anchor this show that, with a lesser actor in the lead, might get lost in L.A. hipster navel-gazing.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
90% The Crown: Season 1 (TV, 2016) The awards buzz surrounding The Crown have some calling it "the next Downton Abbey," but here's the thing: It's actually much better than that.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2016
B+ 88% Riverdale: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The show Riverdale reminds me of the most is The O.C. - another show that took a seemingly worn-out teen-soap formula and reenergized it to create something altogether new... and addictive.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2017
73% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Thirteen: The Sweet Hereafter (TV Episode) I think we're going to see, after the finale, a big power shift between Cheryl and Penelope. They're going to be kind of locked in battle--these two very formidable, slightly unbalanced women. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2017
100% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Twelve: Anatomy of a Murder (TV Episode) So that's why the maple-syrup business is so lucrative.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2017
100% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Eleven: To Riverdale and Back Again (TV Episode) Hoo boy... a whole bunch of chickens came home to roost in Riverdale's homecoming episode. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2017
82% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Ten: The Lost Weekend (TV Episode) Birthday parties are lots of fun, right? Well, not on Riverdale, where they just lead to bitter arguments, problem drinking and uncomfortable secrets being revealed.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2017
82% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Eight: The Outsiders (TV Episode) Will we find out who killed Jason by season's end? Or will they leave us hanging, Twin Peaks-style? (Note to the producers: Please don't leave us hanging. You don't want to follow in the footsteps of Twin Peaks Season 2, do you?)‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2017
91% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Nine: La Grande Illusion (TV Episode) Quippy Cheryl was back this week, and I am here for it. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2017
91% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Six: Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill! (TV Episode) Archie, you write and perform acoustic folk songs. How d you not know about Bob Dylan's switch to electric? Start with Blood on the Tracks and work backwards; you've got some learning to do. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2017
91% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Seven: In a Lonely Place (TV Episode) There was very little Archie in this episode - and I didn't really miss him, did you?‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2017
D+ 38% Emerald City: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Emerald City isn't a 10-second sitcom joke; it's a 10-hour actual thing that NBC has created.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2017
B- 19% Conviction: Season 1 (TV, 2016) Conviction fits squarely in ABC's Shonda Rhimes-y wheelhouse, but needs to deliver more surprises to stand out.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
85% Designated Survivor: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) Too flashy for its own good, Designated Survivor aims high and falls short.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2016
98% Speechless: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) There's a new family joining ABC's rock-solid Wednesday night comedy block - and so far, it looks like they're going to fit in just fine.‐ TV Line
