    Seeing Mulder and Scully back together is enough to maintain interest, even if The X-Files starts diving into political themes that are a little unnerving.

    Where Stewart is the show's greatest strength, there is very little else to grasp onto. The situations are good for a few awkward giggles, but ultimately Blunt Talk misses the mark on the bigger picture.

    David Wain and Michael Showalter's quirky brand of comedy is still the heart of the series, and works because it is so youthfully rudimentary, playing up romantic comedy tropes with bratty sneers and whimsy. First Day at Camp is essential summer TV viewing nobody asked for, but nobody's complaining either.

    Season three makes no significant step forward, but improves by spreading its charm out to the supporting cast.

    Matt Dillon is perfectly cast in the lead, and though some themes and visual cues are a little hokey at first, Wayward Pines soon enough turns into thrilling network television.

    There is an interesting dynamic of a cast so compact in a setting so large. They literally have the entire world at their disposal.

    Man Seeking Woman is a rare and unique comedy, but raises the bar so high with its initial episodes that it will have to work extra hard to keep up this pace.

    The past is suddenly malleable. This removes all the stakes, but also downgrades 12 Monkeys from fatalistic sci-fi dystopia to a predictable genre piece. Not horrible by SyFy, or even cable thriller standards, but still disappointing.

    A smart and enthralling D.C. drama that resurrects its predecessor's outlook, but still takes on a life of its own.

    The story serves as little more than set pieces to the real conflict here, which is Clara's relationship with The Doctor.

    The Tomorrow People, which is a remake of a 1970s British show, is completely bogged down with rushed exposition, stale acting, and pointless action scenes that leave not much to look forward to.

    The problem is, it's nothing we haven't seen already in The Office, or countless other romantic comedies. It's forgivable, though, as Hello Ladies doesn't give up on the self-deprecating scenery.

    Beyond blissful laughs, Parks and Recreation offers a healthy image of political cooperation at a time when we could really use it.

    The concept is predictable, but not tired. The cast is relatable, and the dilemmas are thought-provoking without being heavy-handed.

    Other than a few other corny ideas (the whole Presidential assassination trope is a little cliché), Hostages delivers a compelling plot with enough tension to keep viewers interested for 45 minutes.

    The Goldbergs banks on nostalgia for its charm, but needs to build on something more for us to really care about this family.
