    Its tender moments register without feeling forced while the comedy comes in the form of a constant IV drip.

    About as good a Community restart as anyone could have possible hoped for.

    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.

    There's pleasure in every frame here--from terrific new cast additions (Molly Parker, David Glennon) to richer D.C. subplots. It all works, and it is all addictive.

    Judge has a keen eye for the absurdities of human behavior and speech, but he's not the kind of guy to waste that on subtle inside jokes or wordplay. He's not someone to waste it on farce, either: Silicon Valley also happens to be sly and smart.

    • 100 Verne Gay
    This still very much feels like a journey worth taking if only because--in the process--Hamm deftly continues to locate some heroic facet in TV's reigning anti-hero.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Still TV's best--dive in while the water's warm.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Louie very much remains Louie in the best sense.
    • 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.
    • 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
    Better, richer, more compelling than season one.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The horror is carefully and strategically placed; one mustn't have too much of a good thing, after all.... So settle in. You will be grossed out.

    Soderbergh has created a vibrant, dark and above all alluring Gotham. Owen's Thackery is its bracing human counterpart.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Fascinating and deeply troubling.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    It's wonderful stuff, and we all seem to be on a voyage of discovery.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    This show was always best when handling the little things that aim to capture life, and often do.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Mad Men, as ever, remains a solid and beautifully produced TV program. Best of all, this episode promises a compelling third season. Fans will find much to savor.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Pleasurable, amusing, well conceived and written, though perhaps just a little shy on character development (New York excepted). Give this one time - these guys feel like they're worth getting to know, and the show as well.

    Community can be fresh, funny, smart and extremely aware of its own cleverness; it also can be terrifically odd--odd good, or odd bad, or sometimes odd-good-bad-strange all at once.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    This teacher can be loquacious--oh yeah--but he's got a big heart, too. Danza, Northeast and A&E deserve credit for this series.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Still smart, still good, still fun, Human Target remains one of TV's best comic books.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    A particularly fine new FX drama marred only by a tepid pace in the pilot. But pace and story pick up in subsequent episodes.

    I mostly loved Game of Thrones, but occasionally grew a little weary of it as well. (And just to answer the obvious question, this is not a small-screen "Lord of the Rings.")

    • 91 Verne Gay
    Of course there are dozens of loose ends in need of tying, but you do get the sense that some will actually get tied, and in a satisfying way.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Grim, but a chance to see two magnificent actors at the peak of their powers.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Smart new cop show that takes time to build, but will reward patience.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Still funny and still not for everyone. Louie remains very much a taste that you either acquire--or don't.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Much grimmer, grayer and (gasp) dowdier. Still mostly wonderful.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    A winner and best of all, fun.
    • 67 Metascore

    A gorgeous production, though the story sometimes keeps it on the tarmac.
