    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    TV's pre-eminent people-watching pleasure.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Bigger, brassier and even more thrilling, Homeland has boosted the stakes.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Burns and Ward pile on so much detail, alongside so much stunning footage, that by watching this whole spread--to borrow that famous and also well-rubbed line -- will be like arriving "where we started and know the place for the first time." Magnificent. Of course.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Target is pure, utter, ridiculous, over-the-top-into-the-ravine entertainment.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A re-energized and immensely entertaining start to the third season.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    One of TV's best shows, comedy or drama, because this series often succeeds as both.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This one is stylish, smartly produced and has a very appealing cast.
    • 62 Metascore

    You can't go wrong with Smith ("That '70s Show") or Lenehan, pros with impeccable comic timing, which leaves relative newcomers Bornheimer and Hayes. Thumbs-up here, too. Worst Week may be the best new comedy on network TV this season.

    • 100 Verne Gay
    From this, you will gain a keen understanding of what lies beneath those endless rows of markers at any military cemetery. This is an honest and often magnificent tribute to the 1st Marine Division.

    Like "Mad Men," Wife has an obsessive attention to detail; it's a hurricane of detail, in the visual touches, legal patter and the actors' unspoken flourishes. Nothing seems extraneous or out of place. Also like "Men," this show cares as much about silence as words, or that which isn't said (also a form of eloquence).
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Lean, laconic, precise and as carefully word-crafted as any series on TV, there's pretty much nothing here to suggest that the third season won't be as good as the second--or better.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A luminous and fully alive portrait by a first-rate actress.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Excellent actors playing excellent actors--and largely succeeding.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Episodes is flawless and hilarious. What a pity it lasts only seven episodes.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The show also feels more nuanced. If season 4 was like a giant exhaled breath, then season 5 is an inhaled one. The story beats are more deliberate. There's also a sharpened sense of building anticipation--or impending doom.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Byrne is brilliant and--for the most part--so is this fine and absorbing show.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A densely packed, well-paced gothic horror soap with surprisingly funny twists placed at the worst.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Justified remains as good as ever--and as tautly written, acted and directed, and deeply, completely pleasurable as the fifth season, and the one before that and... all of the other seasons, too, now that I think of it.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Not a single minute seems superfluous. This is all-engrossing, and all-informative.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The producers ("Alias" alums Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec) have created a Dickensian (with a nod to L. Frank Baum) universe, draped in shadows, pastels and mystery, while aurally wrapped in chestnuts from the Sweet, Five Man Electrical Band and the Ramones. This new series has enormous promise.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Interesting, engaging, worthwhile.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Brownstein and Armisen move so effortlessly between characters, then execute their riffs, tics, styles and voices with such skilled abandon that before long this doesn't seem like satire any longer but a fun house mirror reflection of intensely real people.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Louie very much remains Louie in the best sense.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    About as good a Community restart as anyone could have possible hoped for.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This show--still TV's best--remains utterly true to itself.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    "Men," of course, remains the King of the Emmys, while Empire nailed the equally prestigious Golden Globe for best drama last winter. But Sunday begins to build the case for Empire, and build it convincingly.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Its tender moments register without feeling forced while the comedy comes in the form of a constant IV drip.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Still TV's best--dive in while the water's warm.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Judge has a keen eye for the absurdities of human behavior and speech, but he's not the kind of guy to waste that on subtle inside jokes or wordplay. He's not someone to waste it on farce, either: Silicon Valley also happens to be sly and smart.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    An addictive show, with great cast, excellent writing.
