    • 100 Verne Gay
    Not a dull or wasted moment, and Lane may have just turned in the one of the best performances of her career.

    • 100 Verne Gay
    In Treatment deftly picks up where it left off--midpoint in the journey of Paul Weston's soul--and reminds us why we took this trip with him in the first place. The new cast is superlative, Bryne is intoxicating, and Ryan is an especially excellent addition. Bon voyage.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    As always, magnificent with a moving subtext.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    As with "The Avengers," Whedon's ear and sensibilities match the material perfectly.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Quirky, funny, smart, wonderful acting, surprise cameos by cherished actors (Steve Harris, "The Practice"), and a one-two punch by Chandler and Britton that is unbeatable. What's not to love?
    • 68 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The opener is absolutely superlative--a thing of real beauty, even elegance.... Berry delivers a performance that's surprisingly layered and nuanced.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This is a spectacular new series, with some stunning performances--Pierce, Peters, Zahn, in particular--and gorgeous music.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Marvel’s Jessica Jones succeeds in all sorts of ways, especially the one that counts most: Ritter just might be the shrewdest casting move of the season, maybe several seasons, because she so fully inhabits the multidimensional Jones.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Based on the first two episodes, Saul is making a case that it could be even better than “Breaking Bad” (and do brush up on your Bible stories).
    • 99 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Taut, efficient and directed with a scalpel, Breaking Bad remains a marvel.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Character--as the old saying goes--is a long-standing habit, and their habits remain very much intact. The same could be could be said of Justified.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Africa convincingly, emphatically, establishes that you ain't seen nothing yet.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    All very much and happily remains the same--and unless you are an absolute die-hard insane fan who will find something to complain about here ... there really isn't all that much to complain about whatsoever.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    All charm and smarts, the best new NBC comedy in a long time. A winner.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    McDormand will win an Emmy for this. Already, there's no contest.... Cholodenko's direction is masterful, and so is the bleakly funny script by Jane Anderson, but they clearly have a vision that is both part of--and separate from--the source material.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This is often a stirring and deeply felt portrait of people in an extended state of crisis.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Cumberbatch and star British producers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss ("Doctor Who") have performed quite a remarkable feat here--they've created something unique and pleasurable where so many have trod before.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Sharper, smarter, more richly layered, detailed (and acted), Girls has improved upon its first season.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Mad Men is back and back in all the right ways--the humor, the writing, the period details, and best of all, the flawless attention to these characters and their cluttered interior worlds.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    True-blue fans will swoon. Everything they - you - love about this classic is laid out, banquet-like, Sunday night - the fashions, style, elegance, writing, characters, precision, beauty and most of all, the humor.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Full of joy, humor, brilliant writing and performances, and a deep unabiding love for what really makes Hollywood great--the women.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This indisputably is Amazon Prime's “Orange Is the New Black.” That--believe me--is praise enough.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This beautiful and often moving film resonates even more powerfully with Sandy in our rearview mirror, while Burns' favorite theme--the American character--is drawn here with great clarity.

    Wolf Hall really is one of the great pleasures of the small screen this year, even if it doesn't initially make much of an effort (like Cromwell) to curry your favor. But stick with this one. The rewards are considerable.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This is TV's best and brightest at the moment, and a wonderful tribute to New York's resurgent TV production industry.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Even at six hours, this tends to be more impressionistic, and less bound to a strict historic timeline.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    It's evocative, smartly structured, well acted and insists that the strange ride you are about to take will be worth every minute.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Bleak and desperate? Possibly (the song [Peggy Lee's haunting cover of the classic Leiber-Stoller song "Is That All There Is?"] is just a sad song). But here's the surprise: Severance makes the opposite case.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    At turns it's sad, poignant, bitter and funny (yes, more than enough turns in that direction).
    • 61 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Far, far, far and away NBC's best new pilot of the season and one of the best new shows of the season, on any network -- commercial or cable.
