    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.

    These episodes will stick with you long after watching them.

    This is the best new show of the summer.

    Just as Gilligan routinely did with “Breaking Bad,” the first episode ends with a cliffhanger of sorts, and another pleasant surprise. It’ll make you wish 9 p.m. Monday comes quickly.

    Creator/executive producer Drew Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods”) serves up a dark, edgy, violent and, at times, gruesome series that has some teeth to it.

    For those of us 40 and older, it’s a bit of a hoot watching Foster navigate these waters, from learning how to use Twitter to deciphering texts IRL (in real life) to explaining away those crow’s feet, among other things that aren’t mentionable in a family newspaper. But it’s the personal relationships--with the hunky Tortorella and with Duff--that hold the most interest here.

    Bloodline unfolds like a good novel. It’s so well acted, that like a good book, it’s hard to stay away from it

    Like “Mars,” part of iZombie’s appeal is the banter among the characters.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Jeff Korbelik
    This one’s super funny, especially the scenes featuring Winters and Duhamel together. Talk about chemistry.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 83 Jeff Korbelik
    It has the look and feel of a sweeping “Game of Thrones” kind of epic filled with romance, intrigue and violence.

    The pilot's humor is juvenile, including a bunch of toilet references, although I did laugh at the baby pool turned into a large margarita. Things pick up in episode two, but not by much.

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

    Bosch’s dialogue is clunky at times, especially in scenes involving Bosch and his superiors. They look like somebody scolding a puppy and are hard to take very seriously. But the story is compelling.

    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
    • 58 Jeff Korbelik
    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.

    Give me a little more music and a little less soap opera, and we may have something here.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Jeff Korbelik
    This is just a straightforward whodunit--a summer escape.
    • 68 Metascore

    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.

    What Cuse and Tucker have done best is maintain the eerie tone and feel from the original.
    • 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.

    Sometimes it’s funny, but most of the time it’s just bizarre.
    • 66 Metascore

    It’s the kind of show that sits with you long after it’s over.
    • 65 Metascore

    Viewers will get a kick out of how each character is portrayed from what we know today about them from history texts and biographies. Samuel Adams likes his beer, Benjamin Franklin his women and John Hancock his money.

    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.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 83 Jeff Korbelik
    This is over-the-top. And extremely fun. And here’s hoping Wyle recurs often.
    • 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.
