    Legit walks the tightrope between the dark and the heartfelt as well as anything on TV.

    As has often been the case with torn-from-yesterday’s-headlines TV movies, the film is most worth sitting through for some of the performances.

    His TV show has none of the ambitious reach of his best podcasts, and it keeps pretending to be edgier than it is.

    Spader is fun to watch in a shallow, ornamental way, but he’d be worth caring about if there were some limits to his character’s abilities. Instead, he’s not just brilliant, but also practically unbound by the laws of time and space.

    Those seeking entertainment would be better off watching the movie, which will give them a rousing American story in half the time.

    The only times Dancing On The Edge doesn’t move like molasses are during the brief moments of excitement or pleasure.

    Ja’mie is so drawn-out and lifeless that the mind wanders, wondering if there might be something ugly about the popularity of this character.

    It smells like something that’s been tested in focus groups to within an inch of its life.

    Louisiana no longer celebrates the entertaining crookedness of its politicians. By trying to build a reality show on the dead ground of a discredited mythology, A&E has combined the worst of both worlds.
