    This campfire story may not be getting any smarter, but it should get even better.

    The pilot was so uneven that the whole affair nearly veers into "Reefer Madness" territory--the kind of over-the-top cautionary fable that subverts honorable intentions through hysteria or cliche. Despite its pedigree, Teenager doesn't appear to have ever stepped inside a high school, either.

    Sit Down is raw, vulgar and blithely offensive, with so many triple and quadruple entendres for so many sexual acts, I lost count.

    Fans will love every minute--especially Roman's fate.

    Yup, the story can be downbeat, the pace at times languid. But this is a show with a brain and a heart.

    Four immensely enjoyable hours. Alas, I can't speak to what happens during the remaining 20.

    Good newcomer that can drag, but Hemingway's direction keeps this one on track.

    A rare HBO misfire--but I do hope Amy finds peace.

    Discovery introduced a compelling new hero, an even more compelling new alien, and a whole new war. But mostly it did negligible damage to a revered franchise and its legacy. Discovery is perfectly fine.

    This is pure kiddie fare; no big deal--Chuck's back; TV's a better place.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A densely packed, well-paced gothic horror soap with surprisingly funny twists placed at the worst.

    Liv is more goth than zomb, more punk than spunk. She's also as appealing as anyone who eats human brains for a living could possibly be. Her supporting cast is good, too.

    As with "The Avengers," Whedon's ear and sensibilities match the material perfectly.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Yes, cliches about wealth and privilege abound and are confirmed, or perhaps further embedded....But NYC Prep is so eager to establish a kinship with "Gossip Girl" that it's forgotten to tell much of a story.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Good show with fine cast, but it all still feels a little too familiar and old-fashioned.

    Homeland's fourth season feels as fresh, important and relevant as yesterday's news--or tomorrow's news. A bracing, intelligent start.

    As usual, one’s tolerance for Transparent depends on one’s tolerance for the overbearing, over-sharing, boundary-blasting Pfeffermans. But here’s a guarantee: One won’t be bored and one will end this ride with an affirmation, once again, that love may come in all shapes and sizes, but love is still love.

    The series actually improves on the movie. This is consistently funnier, weirder and more inventive.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Maybe just crazy enough to be engaging in the early going. It's the long run that looks questionable.

    • 91 Verne Gay
    But the best stuff easily reminded true blue fans--and only true blue fans--why they loved this so deeply to begin with.

    CSI is not looking for a facsimile, so fans can rest assured that Fishburne will evolve into a unique and valued lead on his own.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    This three-parter often lacks finesse and sophistication. The story is rushed or clumsily told, and the tone discordant....Watch for Atkins only. She's brilliant.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    This is four hours of love and music, but the film also wants to address the many controversies, then excuse them. The result: Some lily-gilding, and far too many observations we've heard far too many times before and factoids, too.

    Michael is a clinically interesting personality type who is profoundly unempathetic, until such times as he is very empathetic. The wonderful creative trick of The Office is knowing exactly the right moment to humanize Michael.

    Silly, gross, soapy, mysterious, intriguing, exotic, erotic True Blood is fun. Even more fun this season.

    Watching Seinfeld knock out the oldies-but-goldies is indeed watching someone do what they were born to do. He’s a master technician who cuts through the material at a high rate of speed, while using pantomime to fill in the blanks or give the punchline a steroid boost.

    It’s great have an old friend back, even better to see he’s still the best part of his own joke. It’s also reasonable to wonder whether that joke has grown just a little bit stale.

    • 83 Verne Gay
    The acting is first-rate, and so is the writing, but the violence is appalling, and not just appalling, but creatively appalling.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Verne Gay
    You'll be happy to know that every second -- particularly every second with Sedgwick onscreen -- is pretty much a joy.

    Episodes is flawless and hilarious. What a pity it lasts only seven episodes.
