    At least Emily proves she's got the chops to cast a shadow of her own.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Mann and HBO deserve much credit for profiling these extraordinary people. It's just too bad the execution tends to be a little long-winded or not nearly as expansive as it should be.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Not great, not terrible--just your standard-issue TV movie about a well-known historic event.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Above-average newcomer with a great actor in the leading role and frosty grace notes throughout.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Been here/seen this--a lot--but familiarity could work in favor of Deception.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Mostly boilerplate teen soap that lacks the (umm) zest of "Sex and the City"--a good thing, in case you're wondering.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Ambitious and intermittently entertaining, Zero Hour--and its celebrated lead--don't quite hit all their marks. But at least the mystery's a hoot.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    We know how this ends (he becomes commish) but there's little evidence suggesting how or why that happens, and even less reason why we should care. Meanwhile, the best stuff in Golden Boy is the little stuff--sharp, brittle dialogue, nice performances and a street cred that's a cut above average.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    The acting is solid all around--just not entirely convincing.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    While True Blood remains wildly and bloodily inventive--and will certainly remain a huge HBO hit--there's still an overwhelming sense that deja-vu-all-over-again has set in.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Sit back, don't think, and expect some good performances--especially by Jennifer Carpenter.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    At first, the pace is slow--make that glacial--but [the] pilot episode (and especially Sunjata) are good-natured enough to make you want to stick around to see if this gels into anything approaching an FX drama (it does not).
    • 75 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    In the end, don't much like Ray Donovan.... [But] Donovan ultimately succeeds on the little things--some very good performances by some very good actors and sharp dialogue by Biderman, who knows how to write Tough Guy talk with the best of them.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    There's a glimmer of hope here, and her name is Rebel Wilson. Now, the show needs to match her talents.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Bonnie & Clyde really is just another biopic with superior production values, a few good performances and a pair of protagonists who deserve no sympathy, and receive none here.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    This is a thoughtful, dutiful historic drama filled with all the requisite period details and British accents, too. But what's missing here, glaringly so, are passion and sweep .
    • 64 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Falco is very good, always is, but her show has gotten tired.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    The McCarthys--good-natured, old-fashioned, unchallenging--isn't a bad sitcom, just an obvious one.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    [Bakula and Pounder] should make the process of watching--or chore of watching, depending on your appetite for more of this formula--just a little more agreeable.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Amusing, dumb, silly--exactly what you'd expect.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Respectable, incomplete survey (on TV) Thursday night, but future installments look better.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Passable summer thriller with some decent (for TV) action sequences. The plot? You've been there, done that.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 67 Verne Gay
    Despite the slightest everything's-up-to-date vibe, Cristela is really just another old-fashioned sitcom with roots that reach all the way back to the dawn of television, where shows neither offended nor scandalized.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    Some of Mamet's dialogue is certifiably awful and some certifiably brilliant, and the dichotomy is breathtaking.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    A harmless and mostly fun little sitcom.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    A reasonably competent soap.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    "Brotherhood" is sharply written... Nevertheless, a heavy air of predictability hangs over "Brotherhood," which has a tendency to confirm viewer expectations instead of challenging them.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    "Lost Room" is a shaggy dog story that gets shaggier with every scene. It's a tale as tall as the Empire State Building that threatens to topple in the merest breeze but - miraculously - never does.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    Cane" is not a bad show, and it's sporadically a good one. Merely, great expectations have not been met.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    A relentlessly grim and deeply depressing viewing experience.
