  1. Disenchantment was billed as “an adult animated comedy fantasy series” but misses its mark, since it’s neither “adult” nor is there much comedy. The 10-episode series will appeal more to a preteen sensibility than to anyone over 14 and it’s got plenty of, well, cartoonish violence a la “Itchy and Scratchy” from “The Simpsons.” What it doesn’t have is the charm or wit of that series--either in its storyline or its characters--and mostly plods along with only the occasional throwaway line eliciting a smile.
  2. The pacing is brisk (there’s tension-building soundtrack music that sounds a lot like a Muzak version of Elvis Costello’s “Pump It Up”) and the cutaway segments with Poehler and Offerman are used to full advantage. ... Making It should strike a chord for viewers who love to work with their hands--or wish they possessed that talent.
  3. For anyone whose idea of a classic British procedural is the divinely gritty “Prime Suspect,” the design of the Morse prequel may seem creatively anachronistic. But it has charms to spare.
  4. Wayans’ fans will probably savor them. Like the overgrown kid he plays on TV, his charisma is undeniable and his wisecracks usually hit the bullseye.
  5. Smart, acidly funny with a wounded glamour that belies a genuine sorrow.
  6. Some tonal adjustments may have gotten Patrick Melrose off to a better start. Right now it feels like an overdose.
  7. As Season 1 only has handful of episodes, it’s fair to say that not enough happens on Sweetbitter to pique our interest for more.
  8. Moss is the putative star of this vehicle, but Bledel is going to give her a run for her money. ... Increasing the episode count from 10 to 13 seems to have encouraged the writers to slow down the storyline and, worse, pad out each hour with flashbacks. There are too many of them. Some scenes of Moss waiting in limbo feel just like that. Waiting.
  9. Overall, the premiere episode tries too hard to hit too many topical targets in its 22 minutes. It’s all over the map, failing to distinguish itself from other by-the-numbers sitcoms in recent years.
  10. If you’re looking for an update of “Murder, She Wrote,” then “Instinct” might be the show for you.
  11. Rise could have used a bit more of “Glee’s” unabashed sunniness to cut the persistent gloom, but at least the cast is appealing.
  12. You will struggle to care. ... The largely unknown cast is fine, but they’re working with such bland material that it’s hard to work up much enthusiasm.
  13. If HBO was looking for a “This Is Us” with nudity, “Here and Now” is an aimless, unsatisfying result.
  14. An entertaining, edgy piece of escapism that adds some much-needed diversity to the network’s lineup of white-bread soap operas.
  15. “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” is more personal and heartfelt than Murphy’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” and proves that when it comes to seductive allure laced with menace, no one in TV is Murphy’s match.
  16. Grown-ish is a clever show that knows how clever it is.
  17. You can see LA to Vegas isn’t trying that hard to be clever or fresh. As in-flight entertainment goes, this series is grounded.
  18. For the most part, No Activity plays like one of those “bro” comedies where the guys in charge, entering a superannuated adolescence, hope a hipster veneer will disguise a very lowbrow puerile comic sensibility. It makes “Two and a Half Men” look like “Frasier.”
  19. The pace is brisk, the gang’s all (eventually) here and there’s a lot coming down the pike--so settle in for the ride.
  20. [Hit the Road] seems compelled to revel in sophomoric toilet humor and sex jokes. ... Hit the Road does hit some high notes with clever writing and a few laugh-out-loud moments--abetted by good chemistry between Alexander and Amy Pietz as Ken’s wife, Margie “Meg” Swallow.
  21. The Mayor needs more depth to take it beyond the standard sitcom formula.
  22. This season of “Curb” may not set the world on fire, but there will always be that one unbelievable thing Larry says that will make you shake your head as you laugh, really hard.
  23. The new series SEAL Team typifies the CBS procedural: by-the-numbers, safe and predictable enough to satisfy even the most casual viewer. That’s not to say that the military drama, starring David Boreanaz (late of “Bones”), doesn’t have its plusses. It does, in that meat-and-potatoes, formulaic kind of way that neither surprises or disappoints.
  24. Perry, the spitting image of her mom, is flat-out terrific as Mary Cooper. ... Of course, the success of the enterprise rises and falls on Iain Armitage’s shoulders. He reveals himself as an adroit performer who can play the show off, the little boy and the kid who doesn’t know how he comes by his own gifts.
  25. It’s got top-notch special effects and terrific makeup (for its space-alien characters). But it just doesn’t quite gel. At least not yet, anyway.
  26. While the first two episodes of Top of the Lake focus on Robin’s complicated, unfortunate past, the clues in the murder story unfold very slowly--probably too slowly for American audiences--but when they finally do, the series, directed by Jane Campion (“The Piano”), picks up some steam.
  27. Lorre and Javerbaum disguise Disjointed’s monotonous humor with an intrusive laugh track and cutaway spoofs of TV commercials for potato chips and Marlboros that are funnier than the jokes delivered by Bates and company.
  28. The elements that made Narcos so compelling in its first two seasons are all here: the familiar opening credits and music, lush cinematography and plenty of suspense as we get to know some of the new characters. Pascal stays true to form as the laconic Javy.
  29. The comedy doesn’t take off as it might have were it not trying too hard to be a family comedy.
  30. Biel is excellent as Cora--her facial expressions resonate with tortured emotions--and she’s ably supported by Abbott as the bewildered Mason. ... The opening episode of The Sinner features lots of blood and some requisite (tame) nudity; if you can get past that, it promises an eventful ride over the next eight weeks.
