64% Vice Principals: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "I was wary of Eastbound & Down at the beginning, but a fan by the end; I expect something of the same could happen here. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 18, 2016
98% Mr. Robot: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Many series are "stylish," often to their detriment, but there is something particularly intentional and impudent and even exhilarating about the formal choices here. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 13, 2016
100% Downton Abbey: Season 2 (TV, 2012) "The show, which shifts shape between comedy and drama, is less about the sensational moment than about the texture of the relationships. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 29, 2016
92% Thirteen: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "For a crime story it is unusually gentle and generous toward its characters; it is not cynical or despairing - indeed, it is in the end a love story, or rather, several interlocking love stories set in contrast to the pathological mockery of one. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 23, 2016
No Score Yet Odd Mom Out: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "The show, of course, is smarter than its characters. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 20, 2016
55% Wrecked: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Wrecked looks good. That it's shot and scored (and much of the time acted) as if it were a drama - not exaggeratedly dramatic, with a wink, but played straight - gives the silliness some substance and makes watching a pleasure. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 14, 2016
72% Animal Kingdom: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "As someone who distrusts the antiheroic attitude, and movies and TV shows in which people who are up to no good are made extra-glamorous... I take more convincing than some. But I went with this. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 14, 2016
32% Uncle Buck: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Uncle Buck is messier and broader than most. Creators Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley offer certain updates - a subplot involves mild sexting - but the basic premise has all the nuance of a folding chair. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 14, 2016
50% Still the King: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "If familiar at its core, it's also rather adorable and appealingly weird around the edges. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 13, 2016
63% BrainDead: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Winstead has just the right mix of innocence, intelligence, idealism and pluck for the job. And it functions capably as a monster movie. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 13, 2016
No Score Yet The American West: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "What's fresh in this retelling... is the degree to which it has gone in for re-creation as opposed to documentation, and the fact that it has drafted movie cowboys... as talking-head commentators alongside the customary scholars. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 13, 2016
100% Voltron: Legendary Defender: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "For all its improvements in form and content, it has not sacrificed fundamental candy-colored cheesiness for fashionable dark modernity. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 9, 2016
86% Cleverman: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The multiple, long arcs become legible, and sort themselves out satisfactorily in the end, if not in any way surprisingly. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 1, 2016
42% Maya & Marty: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "There was a will for it to succeed that outweighed its inevitable misfires. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 1, 2016
89% Preacher: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's too much to say that you can't go wrong with the fantastical or supernatural these days, but it's still a bet very much worth taking, and one that largely pays off here. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted May 23, 2016
97% Lady Dynamite: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It is cheerful, dark, surreal, profane, aspirational, meta-fictional and packed with people playing versions of themselves or other people entirely. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted May 19, 2016
20% Chelsea: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Curiosity and insecurity -- this is not the worst way to begin a talk show. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted May 11, 2016
92% Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015) "Documentary filmmaker Amy Berg (West of Memphis, Prophet's Prey) has made an elegant, affectionate and, in many ways, remarkably cheerful film about Janis Joplin. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted May 3, 2016
46% Houdini & Doyle: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It is less exciting than it sounds. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted May 3, 2016
43% Houdini and Doyle: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It is less exciting than it sounds. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted May 2, 2016
13% Special Correspondents (2016) "If it's actually disappointing, rather than merely just OK, it's that one (still) expects more from the co-creator of The Office. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 29, 2016
91% Time Traveling Bong: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Though satirical points are made -- about gender roles and race, about progress, the lack of progress and the wrong kind of progress -- the humor overall is goofy (and gooey), a kind of Mel Brooks romp for the 20-teens, minor but sweet. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 21, 2016
53% Containment: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Undemanding viewers (not a judgment) may find Containment diverting. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 19, 2016
83% The Last Panthers: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Created by playwright and screenwriter Jack Thorne, directed throughout by Johan Renck and beautifully acted in a variety of tongues, it is based loosely on the nonfictional Pink Panthers. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 13, 2016
33% Dice: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Clay has remade his career and his persona for the better, handling the complexities with ease, and it's genuinely funny. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 11, 2016
100% Jackie Robinson: Season One (TV, 2016) "It's a lump-in-the-throat trip, inspiring and exciting, through a life that has often been viewed only within the confines of the game [Robinson] played. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 11, 2016
81% The Detour: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "I like everyone here, and the small, in-passing parts, including Judge Reinhold as a scruffy garage mechanic, are well-conceived and cast and carried off. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 11, 2016
56% The Ranch: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "[Elliott and Winger's] scenes together, as restrained as they are, are the show's most emotionally resonant. You will want to check them out. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 1, 2016
24% Rush Hour: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "In a world where [other movies] are converting film to television, surely there is room for this thing, which though it lacks the star power and acrobatic wit of its theatrical model, makes up for it in other ways. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 31, 2016
80% Lopez: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "George may take a lot of grief, but Lopez, who benefits from the relaxed naturalism of this setting, and whose best moments are his quietest, is well-supported on all sides. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 31, 2016
72% The Catch: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Once things start to fall apart for Alice, you do begin to feel for her, to worry, along with her more sensible business partner, Valerie Anderson (Rose Rollins), about her bad decisions. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 24, 2016
17% Heartbeat: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Some of it might have been written by a computer, sure, but a better class of computer than sometimes is hired to write for TV. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 23, 2016
60% The Passion "Many in the crowd were visibly moved; that's not anything a critic can review. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 21, 2016
32% Crowded: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's... old-fashioned in a not necessarily good way, schematic, predictable and largely, especially in light of its fine and welcome cast, disappointing. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 18, 2016
11% Damien: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "This is a show almost completely without humor, an attitude that might get you through a two-hour movie but can wear a watcher out over the course of a TV series. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 7, 2016
67% The Real O'Neals: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Above all, there is Plimpton (of Raising Hope, and so much more), the anchor here, as she seems to be wherever she goes. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 2, 2016
87% Hap and Leonard: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's always wonderful merely to behold. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 2, 2016
88% Togetherness: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "As in life, conflict resolution often comes down to people speaking in a normal tone of voice, or not talking, or just embracing what's obvious and unstated, which makes it no less powerful. Lovely, lovely, lovely. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 29, 2016
33% Fuller House: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "As revivals go it is more than usually successful and true to the spirit of its predecessor. (Creator Jeff Franklin is again in charge.) And there are lovely performances from the new adults in the room, Sweetin especially. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 25, 2016
77% Vinyl: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Your reaction will vary on your liking for the kind of people the filmmakers have chosen to focus on... After watching something like half the season, they strike me as unbearably tiresome and uninteresting. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 16, 2016
80% 11.22.63: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It may not be worth the price of the subscription, if you don't already have one, but that is a decision you will have to make for yourself, viewer. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 16, 2016
93% Michael Jackson's Journey From Motown to Off the Wall (2016) "Lee keeps his celebration smart and not soppy. He gets you excited, makes you feel the moment, see what was new in it, why it mattered. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 5, 2016
92% Angie Tribeca: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Is this sort of silliness what the world needs now? (Police Squad!, notably, was a flop.) I don't know, but I watched 10 episodes in short order with no ill effects and some pleasure. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 4, 2016
97% The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "As producer and sometimes director, Murphy keeps the production pretty level-headed -- not documentary naturalism, exactly, but close enough for respect. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 2, 2016
95% Horace and Pete: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Even at its most obvious or ungainly, it's never less than interesting, and it's certainly not shy of conviction; no C.K. fan with an Internet connection and $5 to spare will want to pass it by. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 1, 2016
78% Outsiders: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Wright's performance is one of the show's greater pleasures. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 26, 2016
49% Lucifer: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Indeed, the mysteries are almost beside the point; your mileage will vary precisely based on how you like the leads. Take it for a spin. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 25, 2016
79% Chelsea Does: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "[Handler's] brassiness does make her interesting, and makes her a good interviewer. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 25, 2016
64% Mad Dogs: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "The truth-telling gets a little repetitious, a little annoying, a little dull; there are only so many bandages you can rip off to reveal other bandages you can rip off to get down to the skin you can peel back to get down to the bone. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 22, 2016
70% Baskets: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Not unusually, the show gathers depth and delicacy with time and context and as characters come into focus and into different configurations. Down to the smallest speaking part, the actors are well cast and unusually believable. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
