    Of course there are dozens of loose ends in need of tying, but you do get the sense that some will actually get tied, and in a satisfying way.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Grim, but a chance to see two magnificent actors at the peak of their powers.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Smart new cop show that takes time to build, but will reward patience.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Still funny and still not for everyone. Louie remains very much a taste that you either acquire--or don't.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Much grimmer, grayer and (gasp) dowdier. Still mostly wonderful.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    A winner and best of all, fun.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    A gorgeous production, though the story sometimes keeps it on the tarmac.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Unforgettable was on no one's list as one of the "buzzier" fall pilots, but that doesn't mean it's not one of the better ones. It is.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The Gus Vant Sant-directed pilot of what is easily the most important project in Starz history pulses with the sort of corruption that absolute power sires.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    A bit melodramatic, a bit manipulative, Touch is still one of the best pilots of the 2011-12 season to date.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Yup, the story can be downbeat, the pace at times languid. But this is a show with a brain and a heart.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    They honor the job without trivializing it, or turning it into melodramatic entertainment pap for the masses.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Falco, Eve Best (Ellie O'Hara) and Anna Deavere Smith (Gloria Akalitus) are flawless, and... very amusing.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Extremely funny and extremely raunchy (consider yourself warned), but Dunham's a major talent.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    No relaxing allowed with Boss. Sorry about that, and sorry for this series, which remains smart, absorbing and particularly well done.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The results so far are very (very) funny.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Still defiantly Community, still good and still uninterested in adding new viewers.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Smart newcomer with a pair of leads that turns The Americans into a likely winner.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Monday Mornings is Kelleyesque in all the best and admittedly worst--melodramatic, manipulative, shocking--ways. But it's also intelligent, particularly well-written and acted, and above all interested in matters other than what's directly mounted on the screen before your eyes, most notably ethics, human nature and human fallibility.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Foremost, getting Brody off-screen turns out to be an inspired move. In his absence, there's a new world order, or disorder, with a lot of people left to assemble the pieces, including Saul, Carrie, and most of all, Dana.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Based on most of the first five episodes sent out for review, Boardwalk Empire easily establishes its claim as one of the three or four best dramas on TV.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Still excellent, still hard to love.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The Red Road demands patience, but from what I've seen, it strongly suggests that will be rewarded.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The cast succeeds, and in the end, so does Heart.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Crisis ultimately gets its priorities straight by giving viewers a reason to care--about the characters, outcome and mystery.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    If you loved last season, there's nothing so far to indicate you won't like the second just as much.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Good, crackling start that--as the old saying goes--changes everything and may even point to the end.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Amid all those speeches, there's beauty, passion, heart and brains in The Newsroom. There's also humor, even more than ever in Sunday's opener.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Verne Gay
    Tonight's episode is superb, and barrels--relentlessly--toward the answers.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 90 Verne Gay
    This version is a triumph.
