  1. An entertaining, edgy piece of escapism that adds some much-needed diversity to the network’s lineup of white-bread soap operas.
  2. “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.
  3. Grown-ish is a clever show that knows how clever it is.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.”
  6. 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.
  7. [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.
  8. The Mayor needs more depth to take it beyond the standard sitcom formula.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. The comedy doesn’t take off as it might have were it not trying too hard to be a family comedy.
  17. 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.
  18. Scenes in the middle of the show with Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) cleaning bedpans and serving soup at the Citadel dragged. ... The show thrills when concentrating on its formidable female characters.
  19. Snowfall takes a while to get going--and has a tough time, at least in its first two hours, meshing its three main storylines into a pulse-pounding narrative.
  20. The glacial pacing prevents any intrigue from building. Despite these drawbacks, the lovely Naomi Watts is able to bring subtle shading (and a great American accent) to the role as Jean’s professionalism is compromised by unconscious motives. It’s too bad the writers haven’t given her better material.
  21. Viewers are likely to be just as polarized by the riot, which undermines the humanity of some of Litchfield’s inmates by showing them embracing violent vengeance. Like it or hate it, though, this season of the award-winning show manages to feel more relevant than ever.
  22. The cinematography here is excellent, creating a foreboding atmosphere, and the cast is, by turns, clueless, shrill, heroic, stunned and angry--King’s usual recipe for horror.
  23. The cast is quite good — though Leo overdoes the tough-mother-hen bit-- and for actors not schooled in standup comedy, Griffin, Santino, Graynor et al. fire off one-liners (both funny and derogatory) with the panache of seasoned on-stage comedians. ... It’s hard to root for a coterie of self-involved, vicious people with nothing likable about them.
  24. Breslin does a credible job with the role of Baby. ... The film tries to make a star out of him [Colt Prattes], and if that doesn’t quite happen, it nevertheless succeeds at showing the hidden talents of some of the medium’s most durable stars.
  25. The stories will likely prove too confusing to viewers who have never seen the series and don’t have the time to play catch-up. Much of the two episodes were slow-going and the Buckhorn scenes, while striving for the quirky humor Noah Hawley has perfected on FX’s “Fargo,” weren’t weird enough.
  26. The new movie achieves its greatest power as a character study.

    Master of None seems to have perfected its recipe for success: it will make you laugh, think and crave a plate of pasta.
  27. The show’s reputation continues to attract a variety of actors you wouldn’t necessarily put in a room together. Fortunately, McGregor underplays the dual role, avoiding caricature and subtly altering his Minnesota accent to suggest Ray and Emmit have had two completely different lives.
  28. Without a great authoritative figure to lift the entire piece to a mythic level, The Son may have been better off in book form--where readers can imagine the Texas described in its pages.
  29. Fast-paced and trenchant, Shots Fired is a cynical snapshot of the American justice system in freefall.
