    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.

    Brilliantly written, with stunning performances, this will be Luther's final year on TV.

    A stunning, richly textured, feminist existential epic.

    Richly detailed and wonderfully atmospheric ... If the first episodes are any clue, Marvel's Agent Carter will make millions of fans very happy, indeed.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    • 75 Metascore

    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.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    It's an intelligent, surreal, mildly outrageous--and most certainly outraged--satire of life in post-industrial America.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    The writing has moments of embarrassing earnestness better left for a college-dorm bull session. For the most part, though, it is fearless and never shies away from showing its characters in a less-than-flattering light.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    Created by Courtney Kemp Agboh, the Emmy-nominated writer/producer of The Good Wife, and fueled by a powerful yet understated performance by Omari Hardwick, the series captures the spirit of Fitzgerald's novel while telling a story that's very much of our time.

    We'll leave it for the experts to decide how much Aquarius fudges the truth. As drama, it's gripping, disturbing, and rewarding.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    The series veritably crackles with the chemistry between the pair [Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester)], who are propelled each week into the kind of impossible, deadly missions you don't often see outside video games.... Strike Back may be entirely unrealistic, with a storyline that lacks logic, but before the opening scene ends you'll forget about such petty concerns.

    An intricately drawn and superbly cast portrait of a family in crisis that evokes Raymond Carver and James Dickey, Bloodline has the feel, the imaginative reach and aesthetic depth and resonance of a novel.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    Dates isn't the kind of comedy that's supposed to elicit belly laughs, yet it entrances with its sense of dramatic irony.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Tirdad Derakhshani
    It's Me, Hilary isn't simply a doc about Knight's life and work. It's also an affecting story about the friendship that formed between him and the 28-year-old Dunham.

    What is surprising is that the series, an adaptation of the Kass Morgan novel, is well conceived, cleverly plotted, and quite exciting.
