    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.

    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.

    • 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.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Tonally, this often feels more like a psychological thriller than an action one, which is a very good sign. 24 is thinking, not just doing, and that bodes well for the later hours when our friend has tended to jump the tracks. All in all, a terrific start.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The Beales' story--predictably, sadly--descends into mutual recrimination, then near madness. It's all rescued by two stunning performances.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Breaking Bad is extraordinary, and if the rest of the season matches Sunday, an Emmy nomination for best drama seems certain.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A winner. And for the Hoffmans' sake--plus family and friends along for the ride--let's hope there is gold in that hard, cold ground.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    As twisted, and twistedly funny, as ever.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Soderbergh has created a vibrant, dark and above all alluring Gotham. Owen's Thackery is its bracing human counterpart.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The most entertaining--and beautiful--new series on TV this fall.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Entourage--at least in original episodes--has been off the air for one solid year, but when that title song from Jane's Addiction kicks in, it's like an old friend calling--only this time, the friend seems worthier, and his stories more interesting.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    [Producer John] Maggio has discovered the unfamiliar in something some of us thought was already familiar, and by doing so, does help dispel embedded stereotypes while enriching an already rich heritage.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Who knew beautiful, obscenely expensive cars could be so much fun? These three guys do, and they effortlessly convey their knowledge and nutty passion.
    • Newsday
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Beautiful and often moving.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Sunday and the next three episodes are superb while the rhythms and beats of the story are very nearly hypnotic. Nothing here feels wasteful or cheap.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Homeland's fourth season feels as fresh, important and relevant as yesterday's news--or tomorrow's news. A bracing, intelligent start.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Uniformly excellent - although some additional reporting devoted to the treatment of PTSD would have made this a more complete package.
    • 98 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A critic for this paper once declared "The Wire" "the greatest dramatic series ever produced for television" and as the fourth season gets under way Sunday night, there's no reason to quibble with that assessment.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Four immensely enjoyable hours. Alas, I can't speak to what happens during the remaining 20.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Veep is the single most improved series on television.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Six million zombiephiles watched the finale of the first season and those 6 million will not want to miss Sunday's opener, which is excellent and appropriately disgusting.
