    The miniseries captures this Le Carré essence, but also the story’s breathless suspense. The pace is slow, nobody raises their voice--and yet you’re glued to the screen.

    [A] gorgeously somber BBC America miniseries.

    Elba, fortunately, has a determined clenched jaw and wide shoulders, and he easily carries the entire evening, which runs nearly three hours.

    The "American Idol" winner doesn’t have any theater experience, and she went on to do a lot better in the singing department than in the acting one.... If someone should be banned from singing ever again, it should be Moyer.... Cannily the producers surrounded our rookies with fairly charming kids and a formidable array of Broadway pros.

    What really makes this eight-episode series stand out is its setting, because a family divided is more impactful than strangers going at each other.

    The first two episodes are creepily suspenseful--they’re great examples of how effective a slow pace and a moody atmosphere can be.

    [A] stylish, well-acted thrill ride.

    It’s swiftly paced, disgusting--lots of shots of walkers chomping on screaming faces--and puts down some much needed signposts for the rest of the season. Consider us still hooked.

    An endearingly oddball tribute to the variety specials of yore.

    The miniseries is often visually striking, with helmer Agnieszka Holland delivering stylish, cinematic work. But the new script also undermines her mood-setting efforts with cheap shock tactics.

    Mood is key with a fantastical show like this one, but while the new series is far from terrible, it also feels a little soulless. This partly has to do with the cast, largely made up of journeyman actors with little individual presence.

    At this point, there’s just too much good TV out there to bother with yet another just-OK show.

    Mercy Street hugs the middle of the road so steadfastly, it makes “Call the Midwife” look like something by David Lynch.

    Nothing went horribly wrong during NBC’s live telecast of the musical Peter Pan. Allison Williams didn’t embarrass herself in the cross-dressing title role.... At the same time, very few things went memorably right, and the sluggish pace dampened the thrills.
