32% Roadies: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Roadies has a way to go to achieve that level of surreal abandon, not to mention satisfaction. Can it find its own voice to avoid the fate of HBO's one-season-and-done rock debacle Vinyl? That will require some significant fine tuning. " ‐ TV Insider

79% Outcast: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "This is the sort of unrelenting fright-fest that can find menace in objects as ordinary as a Hummel figurine. Before long, you may cringe whenever anyone goes to open a closet or pantry door. " ‐ TV Insider
Posted Jun 3, 2016
91% Preacher: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "If there's any gospel truth Preacher cleaves to, it's that self-indulgence may be the greatest blasphemy of all. " ‐ TV Insider

86% All the Way "For HBO's stirring docudrama All the Way, Cranston goes beyond a spot-on impersonation, aided by astonishing makeup effects, to channel President Lyndon B. Johnson's outsize personality and authority. " ‐ TV Insider

46% Houdini & Doyle: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Too soon, it becomes clear that they're just a turn-of-the-last-century precursor to The X-Files' Mulder and Scully, with considerably less chemistry. " ‐ TV Guide

92% Veep: Season 5 (TV, 2016) "While Veep may have been on firmer ground when Selina was being abused by power rather than abusing it, Louis-Dreyfus still glows with brazen contempt for political or even polite convention and is almost endearing when Selena invariably stumbles. " ‐ TV Insider

53% Containment: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Plagued by mediocrity in the writing and stubbornly dull acting, this unpleasant misfire of a "limited series"-is it ever-feels more like slow death as it spins out subplots from Disaster Movie 101. " ‐ TV Insider
Posted Apr 19, 2016
92% The Night Manager: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "The locations are spectacular, but the most unforgettable image in this sprawling, gripping six-part miniseries may be the intimate spectacle of Laurie intensely locking eyes with another sensational leading man, Tom Hiddleston. " ‐ TV Insider
Posted Apr 19, 2016

82% The Detour: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "This is obviously not a high road The Detour is traveling. But those with a taste for cheerful vulgarity might find it very funny... if the actual goal here is belly laughter, so far so grody. " ‐ TV Insider
Posted Apr 11, 2016
100% Catastrophe: Series 2 (TV, 2016) "The greatest calamity about Catastrophe is its brevity. At only six episodes a season, the desire to binge results in instant separation anxiety. More, please. " ‐ TV Insider

Posted Mar 31, 2016
70% The Catch: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "The Catch is breathless from the get-go, which might divert you from noticing its brainlessness. It can be fun to watch, or at least to look at, and Enos is clearly having the time of her life. " ‐ TV Insider

20% Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Recycling a lead from another franchise spinoff, CSI: NY's Gary Sinise furrows his brow blankly as Unit Chief Jack Garrett, somberly leading his generic team to exotic lands to rescue hapless travelers who've run horribly afoul of local maniacs.

61% The Family: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "As the narrative shifts repeatedly and exhaustingly back and forth between the 'then' of 10 years ago and the 'now' aftermath of Adam's return, the sheer tonnage of familiar family skeletons becomes tiresomely overdone. " ‐ TV Insider

Posted Feb 12, 2016
100% Full Frontal With Samantha Bee: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The only thing that really matters about Full Frontal With Samantha Bee is that after the first episode was over, we wanted more. More than once a week, for sure, but if this topical comedy show stays this savagely hilarious, we'll take what we can get. " ‐ TV Insider

83% You, Me and the Apocalypse: Series 1 (TV, 2015) "NBC has been promoting Apocalypse as if it's a merry romp, but it's way darker and more bizarre than that. Not for all tastes, to be sure, but boy does it have flavor. " ‐ TV Insider

Posted Jan 25, 2016
69% The Magicians: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The source material is beyond promising, and the somewhat underproduced and over-hurried adaptation has potential if it could just slow down and focus. " ‐ TV Insider

70% Baskets: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "In the increasingly eclectic and overstuffed world of cable comedy, there's a fine line between niche and blech. FX's banal Baskets crosses that line with a patronizing attitude that's as unpleasant as it is unfunny. " ‐ TV Insider
Posted Jan 21, 2016
