    Jack Ryan is fun and forgettable, exciting and predictable.

    It’s brutally hit-or-miss.

    At nearly four hours, Shangri-La does occasionally feel overstuffed, and it can jump from navel-gazing philosophy to brass-tacks music history too abruptly. ... But there’s enough fascinating history in this place—and in the man—to make it worthwhile.

    By stripping most of the standard documentary crutches from his version of the story, Fuqua lays it all bare, and the resulting portrait is vividly detailed even as it’s understandably incomplete.

    Although it starts a little bit rocky and unfocused, The Case Against Adnan Syed eventually does an admirable job of focusing--doubters might say shaping--the various stories into something plausible. It seems silly to hope for a huge revelation in its final hour, but with such a fascinating case, it would be even sillier to doubt that another unexpected twist might arise.

    As a meaningful meditation on grief, After Life is dead on arrival. As a comedy, it’s good only for a few passing chuckles. It wants so badly to be both comedy and drama--to be both funny and touching--that it fails pretty spectacularly at both.

    S.W.A.T. is the most vapid, rah-rah ridiculous kind of cop show imaginable—a superhero fantasy that takes place in a Los Angeles populated by mustache-twirling villains and gorgeous, perfect-in-spite-of-their-flaws cops.

    Despite ingredients that probably sound hackneyed and unoriginal, Prison Break eventually does find a little spark in season five.

    As was always the case with Heroes, there’s a little bit too much going on at any one time--a few too many characters, powers, and storylines to keep track of. But that’s a small quibble with a story and vibe that’s this strong so far.

    He’s still funny and charming--but also, given that the stand-up world has grown up around him, dated and occasionally dull. Far From Finished couldn’t be safer.

    Here, he proves himself a solid entertainer with a fascinating story, but never comes across as fully believable, as if he’s actually sharing the whole story.
