  2. After a repetitive midsection, the series picks up when Hanna, Clara and two others go on their first mission, which takes them to London and Barcelona. The violent, tense action leads to tragedy and some wildly improbable rescues and escapes, but it's not like that ever hurt James Bond's reputation. [6 - 19 Jul 2020, p.4]

    The cumulative effect of the exhaustively researched six-part Helter Skelter douseries is numbing, more miss than myth. ... Obsessives might dig it, but others will see it as overkill. [8 - 21 Jun 2020, p.5]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  5. Riveting. ... Peet scorches the screen. [8 - 21 Jun 2020, p.5]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  6. Sumptuous Masterpiece romantic melodrama. ... ITV canceled House after one season, so if you want a happy ending, stop watching several minutes before the end - the Taj Mahal is your cue - to avoid an ill-advised cliffhanger. [8 - 21 Jun 2020, p.5]

  13. Grisly thriller Hightown lays on the raunch and violence so thickly, you might mistake it for classic soft-core Cinemax. And yet there's a grim, propulsive urgency to the exploits of Jackie Quinones. [11 - 24 May 2020, p.7]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  14. Too bad the vehicle for their improbable success, based on the story of a woman who jumped off the Hollywood sign to her death, looks like a laughable dud. The grown-ups come off better, even when you know they know they're slumming. [11 - 24 May 2020, p.7]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  15. Empathy is what keeps this harrowing story from being just a wallow in misery. [Dominick's] journey of self-discovery, which includes a crusade that began in childhood to learn his birth father's identity, feels absolutely, dramatically true. [11 - 24 May 2020, p.6]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  16. It takes three episodes of an uneven but sporadically shocking third season for them [Eve and Villanelle} to cross paths again, but it's worth the wait. [27 Apr - 10 May 2020, p. 11]

    • TV Guide Magazine
  18. This sprawling canvas, with its Chinatown vibes and snarling cartoon villains, hardly needs Magda and her doppelgangers' obvious supernatural tricks to muddy the waters. [27 Apr - 10 May 2020, p. 10]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  19. Fast-paced, very funny and ultimately life-affirming, Upload is (you guessed it) to die for. [27 Apr - 10 May 2020, p. 11]

  20. Slow-burning. [13 - 26 Apr 2020, p.5]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  21. Julian Fellowes' lavish follow-up to his celebrated PBS series, operating in a more Dickensian mode of ripe romantic melodrama and star-crossed coincidences. [13 - 26 Apr 2020, p.4]

  23. Women rule in the thrillingly acted Mrs. America, a fabulously robust recreation of the 1970s battle over ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. ... They're going to have to expand the Emmy lists to acknowledge this much terrific talent. [13 - 26 Apr 2020, p.5]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  24. The ambitious seven-part Masterpiece series World on Fire covers a lot of ground in its first season, but it still can't help feeling like every World War II drama you've ever seen. [30 Mar - 12 Apr 2020, p.8]
