    The humor is subtle, almost deadpan, but brilliant at every turn. Some moments become excruciating to watch, only because we've formed an immediate affection for Josh and hate seeing him screw things up for himself.

    The show is funny, warm and bloody irresistible because of the care taken with creating characters who are multidimensional, vulnerable and credible.
    • 68 Metascore

    The performances for the most part fill in some credibility gaps in how the characters are written.

    There’s an unabashed quaintness about Normal Street, reminiscent of a time when kids TV was all about fun and homemade adventure.

    Dinner isn't quite ready to take its place in the Brit-com hall of fame, but it's good for a laugh or three.

    What truly makes the miniseries, though, are the performances in general and that of Garai in particular. The entire story and theme turn not only on contrasts but also on character evolution, which demands precision and nuance from the cast.

    In the end, it's easy to overlook some of the credibility gaps because the writing is otherwise so fine, as are the direction and the performances.

    Directed by Jon Alpert and Ellen Goosenberg Kent, Wartorn is convincing on a number of levels.

    The performances and characterizations are all top-notch, and the action sequences, especially in the first episode, are crisply directed.

    If you want a history lesson, stay in school. Otherwise, there are enough facts in Sons of Liberty to add some ballast to a ripping good saga.

    Hatfields & McCoys does a good job of explaining the roots of the feud and helping us see that, regardless of whatever legitimacy there may have been in one family's hatred of the other, none of it was worth the lives lost over those six blood-soaked years.

    It's about characters, and both "Chicago Fire" and Chicago PD are filled with them.

    Angry Boys is an equal-opportunity offender, but its infectiously juvenile humor, not to mention its secret heart and, of course, the appeal of Chris Lilley's multiple impersonations, make it very hard to stay angry for long.

    The action is hot, fast and believable, achieved through quick-cut editing and spot-on direction.

    It's full to overflowing with clever and sometimes very funny geek-speak.

    Pelosi's film may not tell "the other side of the story" directly, but if it does nudge us to consider these issues, viewing the film becomes more rewarding.

    A single film about three young people won't, by itself, make a universal happy ending for every troubled LGBT kid in the United States. But it's doing its job if it reaches just one of them.

    Almost Royal has enough silliness for both American and British tastes.

    The series, created by Mara Brock Akil, works for a number of reasons, including Union's performance as a very credible contemporary woman.

    Gordon-Levitt has unshakable cred among the 18-to-34-year-old demo targeted by Pivot, but the cool thing about HitRecord on TV is that it's just great TV for anyone.

    The changes enhance the comic balance between the reality-based humor of a young couple coping with their new baby and their evaporating youth, and the "SNL"-sketch-like satire of a powerful and powerfully self-involved talk show hostess.

    Television simply doesn't get warmer or fuzzier than Last Tango in Halifax, but the reason the six-part series works so well is that its sweetness is not unalloyed.

    Overall, the emotional honesty of Kieran's character and his all too human craving for acceptance and happiness make In the Flesh oddly moving.

    The cast is appealing and the story line is not only compelling but also deals with fascinating moral complexities.

    Hurricane is a whirling impressionistic painting of the band, beautifully conveying the energy, drive and genius of the Stones, more or less chronologically within the basic flashback structure.

    [Berg gives] us a richly detailed look behind the scenes of the boxing world, and, in the process, showing us a battle-scarred warrior determined to live to fight another day.

    The films work individually, of course, but gain even greater meaning and emotional strength in context with each other.

    The makers of Sharknado 3, including director Anthony C. Ferrante, were aiming to make a terrible movie and have succeeded brilliantly.
