    A watchable, engaging oddball.

    What's good about "Loki'' is what was so good about the other Disney Plus "Endgame" spinoffs, "WandaVision'' and "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier." You don't need to be a Marvel expert, or know that Frigga was his mother, or that he had (has?) mother issues. ... This Loki, and those worlds, those mothers, look intriguing indeed. Loki fans will be much pleased.

    It's a monumental bore. ... Meanwhile, in absence of plot, the cast (sad to say, a fine one) is left to chew the scenery. And chew away they do.

    Concise, thorough and lavishly if grimly illustrated, "Tulsa Burning" is really all about questions [What of those victims and their descendants? Will justice ever be served for them?].
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Verne Gay
    till fun, frothy, engaging — but there's a missing element.

    "The Underground Railroad" is often difficult to watch, at times impossible to watch, but at least there's beauty, power, and some first-rate performances, as compensation.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Verne Gay
    Funny and sharp, with some welcome (also inescapable) inflections of "30 Rock."
    • 55 Metascore
    • 63 Verne Gay
    Imperfect, often entertaining, unrecognizable from book or movie.

    There's not a whole lot of pleasure to be had in the waiting. June's ordeal has now started to feel like our ordeal. We need to have it resolved as much as she does. but like her, don't have any choice in the matter because we're invested too.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Genial charmer that quietly makes TV history.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    The cast is certainly a good one, and Winslet is too much of a pro not to make Mare worth watching, at least most of her time on screen. It's all the time in between that's the problem.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    A fossilized sitcom that time-travelled all the way from the 1990s, with one calcified gag after the next, punctuated by the occasional (fortuitously rare) discordant off-color joke. ... With its trusty old-school TV verities, hug-it-out moments, beats as familiar as any from "Father Knows Best," and a laugh track that's probably turned up a notch too loud — plus bonus points for a solid supporting cast — it'll probably be a hit.

    "Chad" has something no other show possibly could, and that's Pedrad's unique comic style. ... Easy winner.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    Its heart's in the right place, it's the comedy part that's not.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A wild ride (as expected), better still a promising one.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Verne Gay
    Beautiful production, first-rate performances, notably the one that counts most — Erivo's.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    James fans will love this overstuffed commercial for NASCAR and its many sponsors.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    First-rate and must-watch.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    100-proof, pure-grade, high-gloss, low-risk formula.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    A weightless and occasionally airless trip down memory lane.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Verne Gay
    As they get caught up in this TV evolution, or devolution, the weirdness grows, and the tropes change — from a "Dick Van Dyke Show"-like world, to a "Bewitched"-like world, to a "Brady Bunch"-like world. They're just along for the ride, trying to adapt with it. But what is "it?" That "it" and their bewilderment is the pleasure of "WandaVision." ... Homage in the best sense.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Verne Gay
    Wan, worn, predictable, "Mr. Mayor" feels like a misfire in the early episodes.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Verne Gay
    "Coyote" doesn't talk about the border but goes beyond it, to see people — their lives, dreams, and tragedies — up close. Politics (ours) thus become inverted and it's left to Ben to make sense of this inversion. By proxy, it's up to us as well. Binge-bait, and compelling binge-bait at that.

    • 75 Verne Gay
    Grim, sometimes grinding, but Jackson still wows.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    Maybe there's a funny idea here, but without edge, bite or (yup) claws, we'll never know. Good heart, no claws (or laughs).
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    Dumb premise threatens to sink promising series.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 63 Verne Gay
    Beautifully done, but ultimately overdone. The book is better.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 63 Verne Gay
    This is a trickster novel in 10 parts, with a beginning, middle and end. Curveballs abound. The neon lights are flashing. The pages are turning. Where will this end up? Who knows, but with this excellent cast, sharp writing, and evocative locale, "Big Sky" does an even better job of making us want to know.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Yes, there are two big stories this season, but the one about Thatcher — Anderson, like Corrin, is brilliant, by the way — doesn't stand a chance opposite the other. Charles and Diana: Tragic characters straight out of Shakespeare, one whose blood runs cold, the other whose "passions are made of nothing but the finest part of pure love," to steal a line from another play. ... Best season yet.
    • 62 Metascore

    It's maybe easy, too easy, to write off "B Positive" as just another sitcom with a few setup jokes, along with the usual, predictable beats. But there's something else here, something potentially even good. Which would be? Call it comfort food, well-served.
