    The drama is quite riveting.

    The pilot is a trip, with Thornton’s character leaving four bodies in his wake--three of whom he dispatched himself. Each meets his end in an unusual, dramatic and somewhat humorous fashion. It’s just the kind of thing you’d expect from a Coen brothers' product.

    This is the best new show of the summer.
    • 73 Metascore

    It has the look and feel of a sweeping “Game of Thrones” kind of epic filled with romance, intrigue and violence.

    What del Toro, Hogan and Cuse are extremely good at here is suspense and horror.

    What makes Penny click is the chemistry among the characters, especially the psychic and the gunslinger, who end up seducing the viewer with their seductive encounters. They make you forget this is an action show

    The good news is the limited series is just as entertaining.
    • 69 Metascore

    It's a ho-hum procedural with a new story each week, but I like how the series strives for authenticity in setting and costumes.

    The thrill comes not from the actual computer building, but the people doing the building. These characters are complex and well-developed, especially Pace’s fiery exec, who is a mesmerizing manipulator.

    This is just a straightforward whodunit--a summer escape.

    Of course, the first episode will leave you with more questions--which will make the drama one of the most compelling (or maddening) of the summer. Berry’s character drives the story. The Oscar winner is a good choice for the role.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 83 Jeff Korbelik
    The story is an edge-of-your-seat kind of thriller. Clues are dropped, but you never know what’s coming next.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 100 Jeff Korbelik
    It’s the kind of show that sits with you long after it’s over.
    • 65 Metascore

    The humor results from its realism and the blossoming relationship between father and son. Here's hoping this one sticks around.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Jeff Korbelik
    Because it’s so dark, and all the characters--like the teenage daughter--are destructive, it comes off as extremely depressing, even difficult to watch.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Jeff Korbelik
    This one has promise because it’s not formulaic. I have no idea where it’s headed, which is kind of nice for a change.

    Sounding like an old married couple, the interplay between the two is, at times, bitingly and laugh-out-loud funny. But it also becomes tedious.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Jeff Korbelik
    A little over the top--well, actually, a lot over the top--the pilot is filled with one eye-rolling surprise after another.
    • 62 Metascore

    Outside the courtroom is where the drama finds its feet.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 58 Jeff Korbelik
    The comedy is “Rescue Me”-like, but lighter, with less angst.
    • 61 Metascore

    Turn is a heart-racer at times. That’s the sign of a thriller done well.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 83 Jeff Korbelik
    It’s been a “24”-like thrill ride so far, with baddies coming at the ship right and left to get their hands on the doc and the in-the-works cure.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Jeff Korbelik
    The pilot is a little uneven. There’s a villain (played by Martin Donovan) within the government, but his agenda is extremely unclear, and the story of the recovering alcoholic dad seems to have little connection to the lottery. Still, the premise is intriguing--a “what if” kind of science fiction story that makes you think.

    Resurrection is the tamer American version [of "The Returned"].
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Jeff Korbelik
    The story sort of has a “Bourne Identity” element to it. The pilot is an eye-roller, with the main storyline featuring Bean infiltrating a survivalist camp.

    In Assets, I wanted more about Ames and his motives--and maybe that will come later--but this is Grimes’ story, right down to how her job affected her home life.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Jeff Korbelik
    The drama is nothing more than a video game, with a story secondary to the blood and sex.

    The good thing about procedurals is you can come and go and not miss much. The bad thing about procedurals is you can come and go and not miss much. Holloway, though, should be enough to keep you coming back.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 83 Jeff Korbelik
    What’s extremely effective is the relationship (and chemistry) between Sequoyah and McLaughlin. You will find yourself rooting for them and hoping nothing comes between them.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 67 Jeff Korbelik
    It’s brutal, violent and graphic. And it’s a story we’ve seen before.
