Posted Jul 7, 2016
95% The Night Of: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "While the theme of The Night Of is a big downer, it arrives in a big, happy package for viewers: weeks of pleasure, watching excellent performers reciting rich, vivid dialogue, filmed with the luxurious skill of an elaborate theatrical movie. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

40% Tyrant: Season 3 (TV, 2016) "Even with the introduction of Chris Noth as a tough U.S. general leading troops and pitching woo at a main character, I'm not sure Tyrant was worth bringing back for this additional attempt to turn it into quality television. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

95% Downton Abbey: Season 1 (TV, 2011) "It is crisp, daffy, intricate fun, a sort of Upstairs Downstairs as conceived by a cross between Angela Thirkell and P.G. Wodehouse. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 29, 2016
50% Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "It feels compelled to explain its own jokes, inaccurately thinking it's too hip for its audience. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

89% Downton Abbey: Season 6 (TV, 2016) "While the upcoming season is uneven -- there are a few awfully wobbly moments in the saggy middle hours -- the series is well on its way to going out in a manner that will have its fans sweetening their cups of tea with salty tears. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jun 29, 2016
54% Dead of Summer: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It apparently wants to evoke memories of everything from the '80s slasher film Sleepaway Camp to 2001's Wet Hot American Summer, but it lacks the energy, sex quotient, and scares-per-hour to achieve anything except a certain awkward creepiness. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

33% Roadies: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "I thirst for more TV that's not dark or bleak or gritty and that suggests there's something great about warm-hearted pop culture that unifies a large, broad audience. Alas, Roadies doesn't quite get there. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

No Score Yet Aquarius: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "The notion of series creator John McNamara is to submerge you in the period and culture that gave birth to Manson and his small army of disciples willing to kill for him, and Aquarius does that very well. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jun 16, 2016
97% Orange is the New Black: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "I would say that if you love Orange Is The New Black, you're going to be pleased with the way the new season unfolds.

Posted Jun 9, 2016
100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 13 "The Americans wraps up its fourth season... with an hour in keeping with everything that has preceded it. Which is to say, tightly-coiled drama that doesn't need to raise its voice very frequently to generate suspense and high emotion. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jun 9, 2016
87% Casual: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Casual -- the let's-call-it-a-sitcom starring Michaela Watkins as a single-mom therapist -- proceeds from a place of diffidence, of setting up the mildest of jokes and seeing how softly the show can make them land. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jun 7, 2016

Posted Jun 3, 2016
23% Feed the Beast: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Feed the Beast purports to bring you in on the exciting experience of creating a new fine restaurant from the ground up.

Posted Jun 3, 2016
42% Maya & Marty: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's amazing that people as intelligent as Rudolph, Smart, and Michaels didn't realize immediately that doing a mere variation on SNL would fall flat. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jun 1, 2016

Posted May 30, 2016
97% Roots: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "The new Roots excels in the naturalism of its performances to make the horror of slavery vividly painful -- and the resistance to it uplifting -- in a way that deepens the tale. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted May 30, 2016
47% Bloodline: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "You'll have to muster all your fascination and a case of Red Bull to remain transfixed by the new developments. That said, the show yields numerous pleasures in the areas of acting and atmosphere. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

Posted May 16, 2016
