    • 100 Verne Gay
    Lean, laconic, precise and as carefully word-crafted as any series on TV, there's pretty much nothing here to suggest that the third season won't be as good as the second--or better.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    I've seen four episodes; they're all good.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A densely packed, well-paced gothic horror soap with surprisingly funny twists placed at the worst.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A luminous and fully alive portrait by a first-rate actress.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Bigger, brassier and even more thrilling, Homeland has boosted the stakes.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The hype is justified. Nashville's terrific.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    One of TV's best shows, comedy or drama, because this series often succeeds as both.
    • 99 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Taut, efficient and directed with a scalpel, Breaking Bad remains a marvel.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Beautiful and often moving.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    One episode in, "Glee 2.0"--otherwise known as the fourth season--looks to be a winner.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Sharper, smarter, more richly layered, detailed (and acted), Girls has improved upon its first season.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A re-energized and immensely entertaining start to the third season.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Solid start to what could--and maybe should--be a future CW franchise.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Sunday is a blast. Heads will roll, and roll well. The gore quotient is through the roof. And finally this guarantee--there is one, maybe even two, spots where you will yell out at the screen, "Oh, my God, that just didn't happen." Yes, the new season is that good.

    • 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.
    • 83 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.
    • Newsday
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Monday night's return of Dallas is a joy and everything fans could ask for--the past, present and future all skillfully bound up in a high-gloss melodrama full of deceit, greed, Velveeta and (surprisingly enough) even love.
    • 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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Africa convincingly, emphatically, establishes that you ain't seen nothing yet.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Veep is the single most improved series on television.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Terrific start to the 6th.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Manhunt isn't out to settle scores, but explain the laborious process of intelligence gathering. No one here is looking for a citation, but understanding, and that's what "Manhunt" does best, as well as--yes--connect some dots.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Everything is pushed right to the edge, and that it doesn't topple over in a flaming heap is tribute to a pair of brilliant performances--though Damon's is first among equals--and an absorbing production that is morbidly fascinating from start to finish.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Interesting, engaging, worthwhile.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    As with "The Avengers," Whedon's ear and sensibilities match the material perfectly.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Lavisly illustrated with archival footage, much of it rare, The March makes it almost easy to forget that words--not to mention the one man who said them--were the real stars that day.... Excellent, exhaustive.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Disgusting--but in a good way.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Excellent actors playing excellent actors--and largely succeeding.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Not a single minute seems superfluous. This is all-engrossing, and all-informative.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    It's homage of the highest form, but comedy of the highest form, too. Cos quite obviously is far from finished.
