    Blood & Treasure is a recognizable Halloween costume and an unreliably silly piece of fodder that’s too dumb to be good and not crazy enough to be a good time.

    Ramy is easy to watch, radically optimistic, and a groundbreaking portrayal of Islam on screen. ... Sometimes surreal, sometimes achingly realistic, Ramy will break your heart and build it up again.

    The three episodes made available for review have plenty of confidence, and an identity all their own. The problem is, there’s not much humor beyond that wrung from dehydrated, microwaved writing by the solid supporting cast. The vibe works; the jokes are rocky.

    This is the strange, irreverent, yet utterly “normal” take on vampires—and that’s exactly what keeps things interesting.

    In short, it’s an appealing entry in the quiz-show canon simply because of its overwhelming desire to be extreme.

    This Giant Beast can be as off-putting and superficial as the psychopathic CEOs it studies, which makes it an imperfect step forward--but it’s a step forward nonetheless.

    DC Universe rolled the dice with this line, but despite its tongue-in-cheek self-deprecation, it has its first good live-action show--and it’s all thanks to taking risks.

    Rich’s roundabout way with dark punchlines, catching you on the way out the funeral home door, are just as weird and delicious as ever.

    Black Earth Rising is overly confident in all the wrong places and lacks trust in all the right ones. The legal thriller’s frustrating bundle of potential never quite makes its case, despite the courage of its convictions.

    There are enough storylines planted in the opening episodes to promise plenty of opportunities for these characterization issues to even out as the season goes on. And this and the occasional burst of misplaced schmaltz only stand out as issues because Cheadle and Hall so confidently grasp their characters from their first seconds on screen; they’re instant icons. More layered jokes emerge as the group dynamic solidifies.
