    You may hate yourself for laughing--just don't be too surprised if and when you do.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Old-fashioned and a bit placid, but Stults and Duncan save the day, and maybe the series.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    An amusing and not-bad game show; Bailey makes it bearable.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    First impression of the third season is a good one.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Skies fans should be pleased.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A partially successful reboot, with less music, more story.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Two things are going for this latest adaptation--solid production values and a talented lead actor.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Dogs is a perfectly pleasant show based on the perfectly reasonable proposition that dogs are people, too.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Unassuming Longmire doesn't shout "LOVE ME!" but instead works its charms subtly, quietly.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    There's plenty of heart here--and some very sharp writing and acting, too.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Yes, indeed, a love letter this is, but 41 is better than rank puffery because it also takes the full measure of Bush.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Sure, the plot's ridiculous, but the film's mostly fun, while the pleasure of watching Burstyn play a homicidal wacko is not to be denied anyone.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    There are real pleasures with "The Hour," but the hour (actually, about an hour and 15 minutes Wednesday night) ticks by far too slowly.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Good performances, good period details, good payoff. But Restless would've worked better as a two-hour film.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Heights almost feels like atonement for the biggest hit in MTV history. The kids don't swear (much), esteem their elders, work at their dreams and have no obvious or debilitating vices--until they drink.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Extremely raunchy, and often quite funny.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A not-bad techno-thriller that could go interesting places.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Vikings quickly settles into a fairly routine sword-and-sandal epic narrative that revolves around a sociopath overlord and the subjects who dare to challenge his authority. But it gets better.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Not a lot new here, but Cheney gets a fair hearing--even though a tougher one is occasionally warranted.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    It could easily be mean and cynical, but manages to avoid both fatal pitfalls because the finalists are so genuinely enthusiastic and so blissfully uncomprehending of their shortcomings.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A well-produced film that is ultimately more painful than conclusive.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Filmed in New Orleans, Coven wants to soak up some atmosphere, bowdlerize some local history and otherwise creep out viewers. At least on these three points, this season should easily score.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    All dark shadows and gloom, there's a comic-book vigor to the series, and the narrative contortion of a soap.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Yes, this is all very familiar--Sundance's "The Returned" was better, by the way--but there are still solid hints of an engaging series.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Noisy, silly, occasionally obnoxious, sporadically funny and ultimately sweet.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Lively pilot, with plenty of pop--but you've seen it all before.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A little long-winded in some stretches, not detailed enough in others but Holmes fans--and fans of cop procedurals--should like this.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    The early part of the third may not be as good as the first season or stretches of the second, but for a few million anxiously awaiting Sunday, it's still good enough.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    The show can be messy and confusing--a headlong rush to who-knows- where-or-why at times. But those clones keep it grounded.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    An oddity with additional oddness in the form of Malkovich. But as summer diversions go, this looks to be a good one.
