    Agent Carter ... could be The Flash to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Arrow: the brighter, snappier sister-show that finds its footing much more quickly than its sibling.

    It’s Me, Hilary becomes a warm evocation of a time gone by, similar to Knight’s old drawings of the Plaza.

    Banksy Does New York doesn’t give more than a passing voice to Banky’s critics and skeptics. (If anything, it’s more harsh to the New York art world for largely ignoring the residency.) But the film does a fine job of getting at the tension that each day’s new piece inspired.

    Sonic Highways does dig deeper than a lot of other musician-centric documentaries do.

    Getting On comes back in a mode so low-key that the show feels inconsequential, setting up a season of diminishing returns. But by the third episode, things really start to click again.

    What makes Man Seeking Woman so promising is that it’s such a strong showcase for Baruchel. It’s hard to say whether Rich and his writers will be able to keep coming up with new trolls and aliens for Josh to disappoint, but it seems unlikely that they’ll ever exhaust the comic tension between the sunny Josh and cold, cruel dating world he finds himself exploring.

    What Chopra has mostly made here is an apologia. It’s a beautiful-looking apologia though, from the stunning helicopter shots of the Staples Center to the stark images of Bryant struggling to pick up metal balls with his toes after his injury. And it’s not like Bryant doesn’t make a strong case for himself.

    Like too many genre shows with a prestige patina, Daredevil lacks dynamism. It initially seems like a bold choice to allow scenes to play out much longer and quieter than they would on regular TV, but that stylistic tic eventually becomes enervating.

    For the most part, Lost Songs feels like a 106-minute commercial.

    Bosch--at least in its first four episodes—eschews action, downplays the mystery, and uses conflict primarily to paint its hero as a troubled-but-noble champion, beset by small-minded jerks. Not until the end of the fourth episode does anything shocking happen that would compel casual viewers to click to see more.

    The Lizzie Borden Chronicles doesn’t quite know what to do with its own self-awareness, but the same can’t be said of its producer-star, who has a winningly evil twinkle in her eye whenever she encounters another problem she can kill her way through.

    Aquarius struggles with how to integrate the Manson family into the action without diminishing the evil still to come. It’s most successful when it sticks to the small details, like the squalid conditions of the Manson compound, or how touchy he could be about his rock-star dreams.

    The TV version of 12 Monkeys pulls apart the movie, and finds the ingredients for just another dark, violent genre show.
