72% Billions: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis growl at each other like rabid bulldogs - really powerful ones - in Billions, a WWE bout set on Wall Street.

Posted Jan 15, 2016

No Score Yet The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret: Todd Margaret (S3) (TV, 2015) "It's an admirable challenge, but a disappointment for fans of Todd Margaret, Cross' once sidesplitting tribute to awkward British humor. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

93% Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The cast treats the dime-novel dialogue ("I don't flirt. I just say what I want.") with such richness that you won't miss the explosions that often deafen other shows in the genre. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Nov 20, 2015
80% Saints & Strangers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "In Saints & Strangers, a two-part miniseries that reminds us the Pilgrims suffered far worse than Survivor contestants, does an admirable job of capturing the early settlers' hardships and complicated relationship with American Indians. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Nov 20, 2015
28% The Art of More: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The drama behind such a lucrative setting is intriguing enough to get our attention.

78% The Daily Show With Trevor Noah: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "This was a fairly benign debut, one that did little to erase doubts or call for a recount. Noah's real test will come as the presidential race gets even more intense. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Sep 29, 2015
2/4 7% Rosewood: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Morris Chestnut's jaw-dropping physique, unabashedly and smartly on display in the opening moments of his new series, may be the most impressive new character of the fall season. Unfortunately, Rosewood isn't a fitness video. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

49% The Bastard Executioner: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "This is supposed to be a morality play about what lengths man is willing to go to rid himself of authority... but Sutter fans will be engrossed in the mystery of where his penchant for colorful heroes and villains has gone. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

31% Moonbeam City: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Does TV need another "Archer"? Not if it's "Moonbeam City," a poor replica featuring the smug voice of Rob Lowe... Despite the high-powered cast which includes Elizabeth Banks and Will Forte, the whole operation feels second-rate. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

30% Hand of God: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) "The drama... offers nothing new in the twists-and-turns department... but you're unlikely to see a show anywhere else that tackles religious hypocrisy so powerfully, including the edgiest cable outlets. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Sep 8, 2015

67% A to Z: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) "A to Z [is] an all-too cutesy sitcom that appears to be created by writers who have very limited experience on the dating scene. You can now get back to missing the golden days of NBC's Thursday night comedy block. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Posted Jan 21, 2014
69% Downton Abbey: Season 4 (TV, 2013) "Not all of the storylines work - an affair between a black entertainer and the carefree Rose seems forced - but the action moves so fast that you'll be hooked on a new scandal/crisis/romance in mere minutes. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
