    As twisted, and twistedly funny, as ever.

    • 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

    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.

    [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.

    The second season of Saul establishes what should have been obvious all along--this is basically just a continuation of “Breaking Bad.” Same themes. Same setting. Same preoccupations. Even same humor. But best of all, same deep, abiding intelligence.

    Who knew beautiful, obscenely expensive cars could be so much fun? These three guys do, and they effortlessly convey their knowledge and nutty passion.

    Beautiful and often moving.

    • 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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Beautiful, elegant final ride, full of love and nostalgia and joy.
    • 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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A fast and furious romp through the first six episodes that should keep bingers--and fans--happy.
    • 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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Like the first season, there’s a “Crash”-like flavor to the storytelling, but it feels more organic this time around.... Excellent, all around.
    • 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.
    • 87 Metascore

    As with his earlier shows, "Hopkins 24/7" (2000) and "Hopkins" (2008), Wrong has structured these stories masterfully. Nothing seems wasted, nothing is superfluous. As a result, the hugely important work these people do is honored in every shot.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Lotsa fast banter and stylish direction will make some viewers dimly recall--as they are doubtlessly meant to--William Powell and Myrna Loy's late, great "Thin Man" movie series.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    It was last year, and remains so this year--one of TV's very best.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    What's here is pitch-perfect - the fear, loss, emotional devastation and, peculiar to this disease, silence.
    • 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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Fascinating and deeply troubling.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Stitched into every word, every gesture, is an implicit recognition of that brutal Fargo credo: People can be cruel, stupid, mean and unintentionally funny, even the nice ones. Another winner.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The fuss is justified. Sunday's return of the Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss-created series is a triumphant one, and should easily establish Sherlock among TV's finest series.

    L.D. is back, and - based on viewing the first three episodes - his genius remains intact. [7 Sep 2007]

    Davies’ dialogue feels so organic to the characters it’s written for that it seems almost to bond to them, as naturally as if it was their skin or hair color. Actors in Davies’ production invariably rise to the level of the words placed before them. They certainly do here.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    [Showrunner and creator Sam Esmail is] a Kafka in the director’s chair, who sees alienation where everyone else sees a Facebook “like.” It’s as compelling and timely a vision as there is in a primetime series at the moment, and darkness is the price of admission.

    The hype is justified. Nashville's terrific.
