2.5/4 53% Containment: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Although Containment may be convincing, it isn't particularly compelling, because the characters seldom register as anything other than pawns - most of them sacrificial. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Apr 18, 2016
3.5/4 93% The Night Manager: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "The Night Manager overcomes cliches... in large part thanks to the combined appeal and talents of Hiddleston, Colman, Laurie and Hollander. Together, they prove that action TV can be made at a high level of quality, and quality TV can be entertaining. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Apr 18, 2016
3/4 79% Confirmation "There is nothing about Confirmation that's transformative, but it's solid work about an important moment in our history. And for TV purposes, it's a work that allows Washington to show what a fine actor she can be. " ‐ USA Today

100% Jackie Robinson: Season One (TV, 2016) "A Ken Burns film about Jackie Robinson might seem inevitable, but that doesn't make it any less powerful - or any less welcome. " ‐ USA Today

43% Game of Silence: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "An insufficiently thought-out cross-cultural stew that lands neither here nor there. " ‐ USA Today

24% Rush Hour: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "A dispiriting, derivative buddy-cop comedy based on the hit movie franchise starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 31, 2016
80% The Path: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Worse yet for the show's dramatic purposes, the belief system they're battling over is so indistinct that it barely exists. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 30, 2016
70% The Catch: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "What you get is a show that's neither here nor there, with actors who aren't always a good match for their roles and a tone that isn't always a good match for the plot. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 23, 2016
17% Heartbeat: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Creatively, this badly cast, risibly written medical soap is as close to dead on arrival as a series can get. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 21, 2016
32% Crowded: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Still, if what you're looking for is a painless way to pass the time, you've found it. And if you need more, there's always Preston and Warburton. Two may not count as a crowd, but these two just may be enough for Crowded. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 16, 2016
90% Downton Abbey: Series 6 Episode 9 "Then, like it or not, we move on to a Downton-free future. Because as Smith's Violet points out in the finale, moving back to the past is not an available choice. And as we all know, Violet is always right. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 3, 2016
60% The Family: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Someday, TV will realize that 'dreary' and 'dumb' are not a good mix. " ‐ USA Today

Posted Mar 1, 2016
80% 11.22.63: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "If Stephen King could go back in time, maybe he'd decide to stop selling his books to television. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 15, 2016
77% Vinyl: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Leaves you thinking that something different is happening here, and that something important is being said about the place where art and commerce collide. And that's reason enough to listen. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 12, 2016
100% Full Frontal With Samantha Bee: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "One show. One woman. One smart, sharp and very funny voice. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 9, 2016
68% Madoff: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "For much of its somewhat padded length, Madoff works as a comedy of greedy errors, and the credit for that goes to Richard Dreyfuss, who narrates the film and practically twinkles with delight each time he takes in a rich sucker. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 3, 2016
97% The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Yet against all odds, this tightly written, sometimes stunningly performed 10-part drama avoids all those pitfalls, capturing the tenor of the time and breathing life into the participants. " ‐ USA Today

Posted Jan 27, 2016
49% Lucifer: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "So the best advice is to do precisely what you'd probably do anyway: Watch Lucifer for as long as you're enjoying it, and stop when you're not. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 25, 2016

Posted Jan 22, 2016
59% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "With luck, the show will settle into a more sustainable norm. If it wants to keep having fun, it had better. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 21, 2016
72% Billions: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "What you get is a ham-fisted, irrational, superficially stylish show that thinks it's saying something when it's merely bellowing, and thinks it's taking risks when it's merely taking liberties. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 19, 2016

Posted Jan 6, 2016
87% Downton Abbey: Series 6 (TV, 2015) "It isn't a spoiler to point out that what was true from the beginning holds true now: creator Julian Fellowes seems to love these characters and he seems determined to do right by them. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 4, 2016
97% Transparent: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "As with all great dramas, Transparent finds universality not by blending and blanding out its characters for mass appeal, but by being as specific as possible. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 11, 2015
63% Telenovela: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It would be worth the effort, because there's clearly potential in this pleasant but not-yet-impressive showbiz comedy - as you should expect from a series starring Eva Longoria, at her best here as soap diva Ana Sofia Calderon. " ‐ USA Today

91% The Wiz Live! "Now that's how you ease a TV musical on down the road to success. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 4, 2015
54% Superstore: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Unfortunately, the more you see of the characters, the less distinct they become. They, and their humor, become broader and nastier, as the show veers between honoring people in blue-collar retail jobs and condescending toward them. " ‐ USA Today

Posted Nov 20, 2015
46% Chicago Med: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "In the end, what you're getting from Med is TV at its least demanding and most dispensable: It's not awful, but that's only because no one involved is expending the energy needed to reach the ranks of the truly terrible. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 17, 2015
24% Marco Polo: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Marco is far closer to one of those cheesy international syndicated adventures. That may spell "bingeworthy" in the secret, numbers-free world Netflix inhabits, but two hours were filling enough for me. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 12, 2015
69% Empire: Season 2 Episode 6 "And yet for all of its issues - which include wasting time on guests that would be better spent nurturing some of the struggling young cast members - there are pleasures here that can't be matched elsewhere. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 6, 2015

Posted Oct 21, 2015
13% Truth Be Told: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "[The cast] are, however, the only attractive thing about a series that is otherwise so repellently dreadful, it makes you despair for the future of network comedy - and question the future of those who put it on the air. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 16, 2015
96% Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Crazy is an out-of-the-blue surprise and an out-of-the-box treasure. It shows what the networks can do when they're willing to throw caution to the wind and turn to something and someone new. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 12, 2015
100% Fargo: Season 1 Episode 10 "With one final, breathtaking blast, Fargo ends its run Tuesday with a stunner that solidifies its place, not just as the year's best miniseries, but as one of the most satisfying ever made. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 9, 2015
100% Fargo: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Well, if the first four episodes are a fair indication, [Noah Hawley] has once again succeeded brilliantly, with a second series that is linked to the first and yet stands triumphantly on its own. " ‐ USA Today

7% Dr. Ken: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "There is talent in the supporting cast, and an opportunity to tell stories other sitcoms can't. But so far, at least, that talent and opportunity are being wasted. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 1, 2015
54% Code Black: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Had NBC's competing medical show Heartbreaker debuted this fall, as originally planned, it would have just barely bumped Black as the season's worst new drama. " ‐ USA Today
