    • 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.

    [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.

    • 100 Verne Gay
    The hype is justified. Nashville's terrific.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Masters of Sex just gets better and better.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This show doesn't feel even remotely played out.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Solid start to what could--and maybe should--be a future CW franchise.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    TV's best (but do your homework before diving in).
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Funny, smart, entertaining, excellent acting and writing. What's not to like?
    • 64 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    One of the best new fall series and--double bonus points--it stars the great Hugh Laurie and Ethan Suplee, who ruthlessly hijacks his scenes.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    One episode in, "Glee 2.0"--otherwise known as the fourth season--looks to be a winner.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Anyone who enters this fantastic and beautifully realized play-scape--which remains ever so slightly ghoulish--will stick around. This is a winner.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    There are three excellent reasons--Milch, Mann and Hoffman--why your faith will be rewarded.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    It's smartly written; clinically interesting (Why is Tara this way?), and maybe even a metaphor for the challenges all women face.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    An enthralling film.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Gorgeously acted, written, paced, structured and conceived, "Damages" remains one of the best shows on TV--and maybe the most enjoyably addictive.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This remains one of the best shows on TV, and (as usual) not for all tastes.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The writers have great ears for "real" dialogue, and, in fact, not a single line here feels like a dead ball. The characters, too, arrive fully formed and believable. First impressions are absolutely vital in TV, and The Middle makes an excellent 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.
    • 86 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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    In the third season, the song remains the same. Biblical themes of fathers and sons, fathers and daughters, honor and dishonor, Cain and Abel are all baked under that pitiless California sun. Brace yourselves.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A warm, welcome and even moving return. Best of all, a reflective one.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Excellent, balanced, powerful, engaging, comprehensive perspective on the “trial of the century” and race. The first two parts are best.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    A Year in the Life is a triumph. ... A sweet, sad, sentimental and (above all) joyous return to Stars Hollow.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    There are lots of other small touches--or technical flourishes--along with new cast members, notably Nina. Otherwise, best of luck finding anything radically different because there isn’t all that much that’s changed.... This is a “win-win”--for HBO, public TV, its most iconic series and those kids.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Who else but Larry David could have imagined that a "Curb" largely without the glorious Cheryl Hines could conceivably be funnier? Or that her absence might work as a comedic plot foil for one of its major story arcs? He did, and that's genius.
