    Both Paulson and Vance are Emmy-worthy. The miniseries is, too, primarily because it makes us care about a story that once seemed impossible to escape.

    Because Louis C.K. does everything but hand-deliver the series to the network (and maybe he does that, too), it’s entirely his vision. That’s something few hyphenates get a chance to reveal. Here, though, it resonates.

    Like Behind the Candelabra, its action isn’t measured in car chases and explosions. It’s charted in the lives it touches.

    Tossing Meyer into the election fray was a great idea, particularly since it gets away from the well-worn path she strutted last season. Now, out of her comfort zone, she’s bobbing and weaving with the best of them.

    Kohen, basing her series on Piper Kerman's memoir, immediately gives us characters worth watching.... Orange is the New Black is TV that'll have you talking for days.

    At times, True Detective just seems like an overlong episode of a standard television series. But the flashbacks and flash forwards give it heft and let Fukunaga push the actors.

    It’s involving--and just the series to keep your mind off the snow that's lurking. Fargo's still a prime TV destination.

    Although it’s two hours long, Going Clear speeds by.... Mesmerizing? If you’ve had even a passing interest in Scientology, Going Clear will fascinate in ways you never thought possible.

    Tyson's so perfectly cast, perfectly directed and perfected nuanced, Bountiful overflows with the kind of goodness we rarely find in TV movies.

    Sunday’s premiere provides the border and key pieces to the oh-so-attractive world that is Mad Men.
    • 85 Metascore

    It’s violent in ways you wouldn’t think; daring in areas you couldn’t imagine. It’s not your mother’s Fargo. But it does have the characteristics you’ve come to cherish.

    Downton Abbey seems just as fresh as it did five years ago.

    A compelling look at the 1963 March on Washington for civil rights.

    It's probably one of the most original ideas television has produced in years. The reason? It's so quirky, it zags where others would zig. It also has that loopy sensibility that comes from a vivid imagination.

    It’s a fascinating documentary that’ll make you want to devour it all, no matter where you start.

    The new season has plenty of surprises (couples aren’t who you think they are), a reality check for Marnie and a nice showcase for Rannells.

    In Hollywood, it may be business as usual. But in Episodes, it’s fodder for great comedy.
    • 72 Metascore

    Masters of Sex is highly watchable, not fact. If you understand that, you’re going to enjoy it much more.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Bruce Miller
    Writer Jane Anderson, cherry-picked four chapters and crafted them into a telling character study that covers 25 years of story.

    Smart, funny and utterly intriguing, it sucks us in better than any procedural with an four-letter acronym.

    This Bates Motel requires more than just a one-night stay. Once you slip in you may not want to check out.
    • 52 Metascore

    On first blush, Deception is smart, stylish and involving. In time, it could drift. But, for now, enjoy the kind of storytelling that gives its core cast something interesting--and watchable--to do.

    While newcomers may wonder why so much is made of so little, they can’t deny the delicious one-liners Fellowes has written. Coupled with a driving score, Downton Abbey moves--in ways you never thought possible. It's good to see it back.

    Like a gentler Monty Python venture, Galavant pokes, prods and pummels current events. It doesn’t get down and dirty, but it isn’t afraid to wallow every now and then. When it does so with a little song and dance, there’s enough fun to last longer than 30 minutes.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Bruce Miller
    In a sea of formulaic comedies, this stands out as a lifeboat worth clinging to.

    Through the limited series’ run, guilt is passed like a basketball. Sexual orientation, economic disparity and other headline-grabbing issues get their turn at attention. Best of all, Ridley works with a repertory company of sorts which gamely assume new roles.

    • 80 Bruce Miller
    Director Steven Soderbergh walks a tightrope between camp and class and, if you make it that far, pulls it off.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Bruce Miller
    While Getting On might seem confining--and hardly funny--it’s one of the best workplace comedies on television. Like both versions of “The Office,” it embraces stray looks, asides and slyly funny commentary.

    Girls was great last year. But this season it just got a little bit better.
    • 75 Metascore

    The show is smart--smarter than most on network television--and it has life.
