19% In the Motherhood: Season 1 (TV, 2009) "The tedium and unoriginality of this new ABC sitcom, the latest entry in the vastly overworked motherhood-as-martyrdom genre, has to be seen to be believed, though my strong and sincere suggestion is that you just take my word for it " ‐ Miami Herald

43% 1600 Penn: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) "As funny as 1600 Penn can be, after a while the laughs grow fewer and further between. " ‐ Miami Herald

61% Bonnie & Clyde: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "This Bonnie & Clyde, taken on its own terms, is a perfectly entertaining gangster picture, not to mention an interesting experiment in its simultaneous propagation and subversion of feminist doctrine. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Dec 11, 2013
No Score Yet An Unreal Dream: The Michael Morton Story (2014) "There are many words that can be used in connection with An Unreal Dream: The Michael Morton Story - infuriating, sickening, dismally depressing - but "pleasurable" is hard to apply to a documentary that recounts such a grotesque miscarriage of justice. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Dec 5, 2013
66% Mob City: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "TNT's Mob City, set in the underutilized 1940s heyday of Los Angeles gangsterism - when organized crime and political corruption were at high tide - is a lovably cynical crime noir. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Dec 5, 2013
69% Almost Human: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "Almost Human has car chases and shootouts galore for the 18-to-34-And-Likes-Loud-Noises demographic, and a faintly sardonic sense of humor for the rest of us. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Nov 12, 2013
No Score Yet Paradise: A Trilogy of Hope "The film stands alone as a tender portrait of adolescence at its most vulnerable and how often we manage to survive it, even when we're surrounded by predators and wolves. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Oct 24, 2013
52% Dracula: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "ts political dimension is what makes this Dracula interesting. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Oct 24, 2013
56% Reign: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "If you think of Reign as Mary, Teen of Scots - a sort of Gossip Girl where the consequence of wearing the wrong outfit is not exclusion from the cool cafeteria table but beheading - it can be surprisingly entertaining. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Oct 17, 2013
45% The Tomorrow People: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "[The Tomorrow People] if you're a connoisseur of teenage grandiosity and paranoia, is not a bad show. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Oct 9, 2013
59% Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "Alice's battles with various computer-animated and live-action threats are entertaining and, usually, rather witty, though her traveling companions, the White Rabbit and the Knave of Hearts, get most of the best lines. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Oct 9, 2013
22% Sean Saves the World: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "The fact that nobody's calling this show a milestone is the best evidence that it really is. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Oct 3, 2013
46% The Millers: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "The humor is driven mostly by a relentless slapstick vulgarity, particularly concerning the flatulence and sex habits of parents. If you've got a high tolerance for those sorts of jokes, it is funny indeed. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Oct 3, 2013
42% Welcome to the Family: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "The best of the witty bunch is NBC's Welcome to the Family, which will probably raise some hackles with its light-hearted look at teenage pregnancy... But it's hard to stay mad at a show this waggish. " ‐ Miami Herald

Posted Oct 1, 2013
14% Ironside: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "IIronside's manifest failings go well beyond the political incorrectness of its producers. It is a dank and ugly affair, with Underwood playing a dour, Nietzschean superhero. " ‐ Miami Herald

70% The Michael J. Fox Show: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "Parkinson's is practically a character in NBC's The Michael J. Fox Show, in which the comedian riffs - funnily and affectingly - on his own affliction with the disease. " ‐ Miami Herald

55% The Goldbergs: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "If it's remembered at all after its quick disappearance - which, no matter how abrupt, will not have come soon enough - The Goldbergs will likely be known as the show in which George Segal's career was officially pronounced dead. " ‐ Miami Herald

82% The Blacklist: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "As rip-offs (or, more politely, homages) go, The Black List is pretty good - much better than NBC's own Lecter prequel series, Hannibal. " ‐ Miami Herald
Posted Sep 23, 2013
57% Hostages: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "Lean and mean, Hostages is an exquisitely heart-pounding piece of work. " ‐ Miami Herald

68% Hannibal: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "It's not Mikkelsen's fault that he, very distractingly, doesn't even faintly resemble Hopkins, whose film portrayals so indelibly stamped this character.

Posted Apr 3, 2013
38% Rogue: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "What distinguishes Rogue from a zillion or so other shows about undercover cops is Grace's alienation from her fellow officers and even her own family, all of whom think she's nuts. " ‐ Miami Herald
