    It's a deeply moving, unforgettable experience.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Tirdad Derakhshani
    Endlessly fascinating and driven by special effects every bit as sophisticated and powerful as the writing and characterization, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is a classic.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Tirdad Derakhshani
    After 26 episodes, it's as funny, moving, compelling, and fresh as ever.

    • 100 Tirdad Derakhshani
    Intense, enlightening, brilliant, unnerving, and addictive, Narcos is high-concept drama at its finest.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Tirdad Derakhshani
    It's innovative, shockingly clever, sophisticated, sexy, and beautifully executed. In other words, it's the opposite of virtually every sitcom in prime time.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Tirdad Derakhshani
    Masterfully written by Chibnall and brilliantly executed by a superb ensemble cast.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Tirdad Derakhshani
    American Crime returns with an equally powerful, compelling, and intelligent story.

    • 90 Tirdad Derakhshani
    You're not likely to find better sketch comedy on TV. It's a shame there are only four episodes.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Tirdad Derakhshani
    The Knick isn't simply a lush costume drama, a gory medical history, or a lesson in social studies. It inspires true passion.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Tirdad Derakhshani
    Brilliantly written, with stunning performances, this will be Luther's final year on TV.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Tirdad Derakhshani
    A stunning, richly textured, feminist existential epic.

    It's a safe bet Lindelof and Perrotta have no intention of solving the new set of puzzles they introduce this season with such skill and grace. Thank heavens: Instead of expending energy trying to do a Sherlock Holmes, viewers can simply let themselves sink deeper and deeper into the mystery.

    • 90 Tirdad Derakhshani
    Richly detailed and wonderfully atmospheric ... If the first episodes are any clue, Marvel's Agent Carter will make millions of fans very happy, indeed.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Tirdad Derakhshani
    Epic in scale, gorgeous, and beautifully acted.
    • 67 Metascore

    Murder in the First is peerless in its ability to engage viewers with its devastating, insightful use of the procedural.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Tirdad Derakhshani
    One of the most powerful and original dramas to grace the broadcast networks in years.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Tirdad Derakhshani
    It's thrilling, brilliant, and addictive. It's also repulsive. Reprehensible. Demonic.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    [A] gritty, visceral, and emotionally engaging thriller.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    We enter the third season following a shocking discovery that adds a delicious new dimension to the series: Dyad is only one of two cloning projects.

    Throughout, Rectify maintains a remarkable rhythm--somewhere between reverie and anxiety. It takes its time, exploring characters' faces and gestures, their personal tics and their relationships--a glimpse into their souls.

    Fear the Walking Dead is a wonderfully refreshing reboot that reminds viewers of the exciting, moving, and dramatic potential The Walking Dead had in its first season - a potential the show has all but squandered.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    The Last Man on Earth is a rare creature--a sitcom that's actually funny.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    True, the series is marred by some very lazy writing.... Despite it all, this is seriously addictive stuff.

    The one to look forward to this year is CBS' The Dovekeepers, the latest in a growing series of stories that recast traditional tales from heterogeneous, even conflicting, points of view.
    • 59 Metascore

    This is the kind of story that builds over time, so it's difficult to tell--Discovery made only one episode available--whether the rest of the series will stay as compelling as the pilot. But it's a doozy of an episode.

    The cases aren't always exciting--there's a lot of waiting around--but the people we meet are always interesting and are depicted with class. This is Cops for people who hate shows like Cops.

    The season's most exciting new development is Bill and Virginia's realization they are a viable romantic couple.

    Despite its occasional heavy-handedness, Hunted will give genre junkies a real high--and some food for thought.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    It makes for thrilling viewing.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    Its characters aren't valiant champions of truth, beauty, and goodness, but deliciously compromised anti-heroes who are morally ambivalent, if not downright nasty. More compelling--at least for English lit nerds--our leads go toe-to-toe and fang-to-fang against an army of vampires while speaking poetry.
