    A winner and best of all, fun.

    If you loved last season, there's nothing so far to indicate you won't like the second just as much.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Sunday's episode is exceptional, marred only in a few spots by padding that's inevitable with these supersized episodes.

    In the three episodes Comedy Central offered for review, most of the sketches work, some don't. But the best of the lot is next week.... just might be that breakout season.

    For fans of The Leftovers, the third season looks like the best yet. It’s funny, horrifying, strange and baffling.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The Red Road demands patience, but from what I've seen, it strongly suggests that will be rewarded.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The Slap is a chance, and a worthy one, too.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    A particularly fine new FX drama marred only by a tepid pace in the pilot. But pace and story pick up in subsequent episodes.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    This is far more than a generous compilation but a two-hour fast-cut that attempts to reassemble a fractured mind from its own filings.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Fans will be happy, but you newbies have been warned--the vulgarity will blow your hair back, or right off.
    • 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.
    • 63 Metascore

    Crisis ultimately gets its priorities straight by giving viewers a reason to care--about the characters, outcome and mystery.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Much grimmer, grayer and (gasp) dowdier. Still mostly wonderful.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Morals is raw, interesting, intelligent, sometimes funny (sometimes not), violent (but not overly violent) and unlike anything on TV at the moment.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    I mostly loved Game of Thrones, but occasionally grew a little weary of it as well. (And just to answer the obvious question, this is not a small-screen "Lord of the Rings.")

    The series actually improves on the movie. This is consistently funnier, weirder and more inventive.
    • 76 Metascore

    Can a bad person become a good president? The answer may be self-evident--or maybe not. Nevertheless, therein lies a compelling new season. We may still have a lot more to learn about Frank Underwood after all.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    A gorgeous production, though the story sometimes keeps it on the tarmac.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The series never quite convincingly establishes what could have been a powerful undercurrent-- whether Naz and by association the rest of New York’s Muslim community had been tried and convicted based on their Muslim faith alone. That’s OK. Everything else--and everyone else--cclicks just about perfectly.
    • 71 Metascore

    Still smart, still good, still fun, Human Target remains one of TV's best comic books.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    She’s a terrific and effortlessly funny actress who establishes vivid characters with vivid lives. But Sam Fox obviously required a bigger reach, and Adlon accomplishes that here.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Community can be fresh, funny, smart and extremely aware of its own cleverness; it also can be terrifically odd--odd good, or odd bad, or sometimes odd-good-bad-strange all at once.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    What worked especially well last season also gets better in the second.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Excellent--and chilling.
    • 81 Metascore

    GLOW is terrific. ... GLOW is about female empowerment, and couldn’t be otherwise, but there’s a little more going on--female relationships, and the unique ties that bind, even when frayed by a patriarchy that profits from fraying them.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Still excellent, still hard to love.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    DWP does want to be provocative, just not too provocative. Mostly it just wants to keep an open mind and open heart. Mostly, it succeeds.
    • 63 Metascore

    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.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Good, crackling start that--as the old saying goes--changes everything and may even point to the end.
    • 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.
