    • 100 Gloria Goodale
    It's good, complicated drama, sometimes hard to watch, but more compelling evidence that the best storytelling for adults these days is on the small screen.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Gloria Goodale
    Sorkin brings the same intensity and political sensibilities to the story.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 100 Gloria Goodale
    "Ranch House" is engaging, droll commentary on the American dream and how we became the nation we are today.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Gloria Goodale
    Mirren is TV-biography magic.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Gloria Goodale
    This really is a Robin of Locksley for the "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" generation.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 100 Gloria Goodale
    It's the best made-for-TV movie in years.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Gloria Goodale
    This elegant, shaggy dog of a 19th-century western takes us on a painfully human journey across the old West.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Gloria Goodale
    Broadbent creates yet another slyly simple, yet deftly complex, portrait of the Catholic convert who translated his conviction that no person is beyond spiritual redemption into his work with the British penal system.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Gloria Goodale
    Compelling.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 91 Gloria Goodale
    What they do with their powers and the impact they'll have on others is the raison d'etre of the show; the moody noir tone and offbeat writing are the reasons to tune in.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 91 Gloria Goodale
    "Items" is like NBC's "The Office" on laughing gas - the same kind of poker-faced dysfunction in a crushingly ordinary setting, but faster and funnier.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 91 Gloria Goodale
    The dealmaking and image-shaping are eye-opening, but the single most unnerving aspect of the show is just how young the army of political aides who make the system run really are.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 91 Gloria Goodale
    [A] strange confabulation.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 91 Gloria Goodale
    The hour balances its caper-cartoon and ghoulish sensibilities with a crisp pace and well-cast leads.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 91 Gloria Goodale
    Now that lusty and incredibly bloodthirsty historical dramas have proven their power on premium cable (think HBO's "Rome"), Showtime is jumping in the act with a portrait of one of history's most notorious womanizers and political schemers.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 91 Gloria Goodale
    Edgy and dark, this is the shadow version of "The Waltons."
    • 70 Metascore
    • 91 Gloria Goodale
    Vulgar and brazenly racy, it's unlike anything else on TV.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    This could all get old really fast, but Taylor's steely performance keeps the home front interesting, while the globe-trotting soldiers bring home the reality of how many troubled spots this small planet still has.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    These unsettling scenes are tough on the eyes, but happily, star Paul Blackthorne is well worth watching, full time.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    The goofy affection of her poker buddies is fun, and the writers steer through some pretty well-mined territory with aplomb.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    This is a high gloss, prime-time soap but it's a tad too earnest.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    A good and likable cast combine with thoughtful writing to make this family/thriller (a new genre?) worth watching.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    It will certainly make you wonder how you might survive such an event yourself - though whether that premise can fuel a whole series remains to be seen.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    This is a good, old-fashioned legal procedural with few special effects but quite a lot of serious, adult writing.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    Lean and breathless, just like its all-business star (Lena Headey of "300" fame), this time-travel tale starts fast as bad robots from the future chase good humans in the past.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    Brisk and witty, this is a good showcase for Donovan's super-tough-guy-with-a-heart-of-gold persona.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    This version, while imaginative and ambitious--as Halmi's sumptuous visions almost invariably are--is less successful.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    Only an actress of sublime abilities could lift this material from the downright silly to something intriguingly watchable.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    LeCarré-like in its disillusionment with power, this is good historical fiction for warm August nights.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Gloria Goodale
    It's very filmic both in execution and ambition as it explores life before Betty Friedan and the Surgeon General's warnings on cigarette packs.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 75 Gloria Goodale
    Good casting and well-paced writing give hope.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 75 Gloria Goodale
    Moody and fast-paced, this is good, only minimally pretentious, sci-fi fun.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 75 Gloria Goodale
    "Windfall" proves you don't need to be marooned on a remote South Sea island to be lost.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 75 Gloria Goodale
    [It] is perilously close to Hollywood hokum, but manages to rise above it by featuring the ever-interesting Dougray Scott in the lead role of Moses.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Gloria Goodale
    The plotlines are predictably full of teen melodrama and small-town angst, but the cast is interesting, and the show's semidocumentary style gives it surprising grit.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 75 Gloria Goodale
    The series' unique angle lends itself to interesting psychological drama as it explores the hows and whys of hostage negotiation - even as it dishes out a heavy helping of FOX's de rigueur hoppin' hormones.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Gloria Goodale
    This new cop series is filmed in New Orleans, giving it at times too much topicality for its own good.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Gloria Goodale
    If you liked the first one, you'll like this one just fine. The kids are just as photogenic and the songs are just as hummable. It won't launch any more careers, but it's a good family film for a warm Friday night.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 67 Gloria Goodale
    The pilot is decent, but even with lots of sexy young actors, it's not clear if there is room for yet another New York-based crime-solving procedural.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 67 Gloria Goodale
    While this could be funny, over the first three episodes the show is as confused as the star seems to be about her character's perfect hair (the style is different in nearly every scene).
    • 35 Metascore
    • 58 Gloria Goodale
    For all the comic-book fans who can't get enough of grown-ups carrying ray guns and discussing the destruction of planet Earth, pretty lame effects and super-stiff acting keep this from being really great camp.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Gloria Goodale
    The show will have to loosen up to succeed.
