    The writers have great ears for "real" dialogue, and, in fact, not a single line here feels like a dead ball. The characters, too, arrive fully formed and believable. First impressions are absolutely vital in TV, and The Middle makes an excellent one.

    The horror is carefully and strategically placed; one mustn't have too much of a good thing, after all.... So settle in. You will be grossed out.

    Lavisly illustrated with archival footage, much of it rare, The March makes it almost easy to forget that words--not to mention the one man who said them--were the real stars that day.... Excellent, exhaustive.

    In the third season, the song remains the same. Biblical themes of fathers and sons, fathers and daughters, honor and dishonor, Cain and Abel are all baked under that pitiless California sun. Brace yourselves.

    A warm, welcome and even moving return. Best of all, a reflective one.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Excellent, balanced, powerful, engaging, comprehensive perspective on the “trial of the century” and race. The first two parts are best.

    A Year in the Life is a triumph. ... A sweet, sad, sentimental and (above all) joyous return to Stars Hollow.

    A must-watch: The most important TV program of the year.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    There are lots of other small touches--or technical flourishes--along with new cast members, notably Nina. Otherwise, best of luck finding anything radically different because there isn’t all that much that’s changed.... This is a “win-win”--for HBO, public TV, its most iconic series and those kids.

    Who else but Larry David could have imagined that a "Curb" largely without the glorious Cheryl Hines could conceivably be funnier? Or that her absence might work as a comedic plot foil for one of its major story arcs? He did, and that's genius.

    • 100 Verne Gay
    This is TV's best comedy. And there's nothing in the first two episodes that would suggest otherwise.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Stunning, beautiful, hypnotic, engrossing, spectacular... That oughta do it here as well, except Frozen Planet unexpectedly adds another word: Unprecedented.
    • 96 Metascore

    Prepare to reattach those jaws once again. Spectacular. What else?

    How could you possibly go wrong with these two? You couldn't.

    Here's to a long and fruitful run in the new home. Tuesday night proves exactly why Southland deserves one.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    It's homage of the highest form, but comedy of the highest form, too. Cos quite obviously is far from finished.

    Based on six episodes for review, Kimmy remains Kimmy, which is about as good as the news can get for fans.

    Marry Me is the rarest of commercial TV sitcoms in that it's actually funny, has two standout leads and a superb supporting cast (especially Meadows and Bucatinsky).

    This teacher can be loquacious--oh yeah--but he's got a big heart, too. Danza, Northeast and A&E deserve credit for this series.

    • 91 Verne Gay
    If all this sounds heady, pretentious or derivative, then Westworld may eventually turn out to be guilty as charged. But from at least from the first two episodes sampled, Westworld is also a genuinely different new series that offers something even better than that: It’s genuinely engaging.
    • 74 Metascore

    But the best stuff easily reminded true blue fans--and only true blue fans--why they loved this so deeply to begin with.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Smart, engaging second season (so far). The ensemble cast gets better and better.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Falco, Eve Best (Ellie O'Hara) and Anna Deavere Smith (Gloria Akalitus) are flawless, and... very amusing.

    Like Seinfeld, Carmichael’s humor is sometimes about locating what’s funny in our narcissism, or his. But this episode wouldn’t work as well as it does if there wasn’t a moral, wrapped in a truth.

    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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Yes, it can be mean, and yes, superficial, and yes, a little draggy (almost a whole episode about a kids’ party, really?). But the cast is fabulous, and the script by Kelley sparkles. A winner.

    Based on the first six episodes of the 4th season, OITNB remains fresh, funny/sad, smart, inventive, well-written, and particularly well-acted.
    • 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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Grim, but a chance to see two magnificent actors at the peak of their powers.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    This remains a superior TV drama.
