  1. The most creative TV musical since Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and sometimes just as surprising. [21 Jun - 4 Jul 2021, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  2. Disarmingly clever animated comedy. [21 Jun - 4 Jul 2021, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  3. While the execution can't be faulted, the real problem with Kevin is that once you get it, there's not much else to get. The mock sitcom, with a dimwitted neighbor and other conventions, is just numbing. And Allison's journey from wistful dreamer to calculating and hapless schemer, though authentically played, is a downer. [21 Jun - 4 Jul 2021, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  4. Gorgeously bittersweet. [7 - 20 Jun 2021, p.7]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  5. It's a soul-crushing realistic depiction of the banality of evil. [7 - 20 Jun 2021, p.6]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  6. Their salty banter can't help but conjure echoes from the stars' glamourous Hollywood heyday. And guess what? They've still got it. [7 - 20 Jun 2021, p.7]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  7. The ensuing lurid shenanigans are cartoonish to a campy extreme, and it's hard to care who'll end up killing whom in their venal, petty squabbles. Only Alma's plus-size daughter Dee, who falls for battle-scarred PI snooping into everyone's very dirty laundry, is worth rooting for. [7 - 20 Jun 2021, p.7]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  8. The imbalance in Hacks' odd-couple premise is that while every quip out of Deborah's mouth is a hoot, nothing about whiny Ava suggests she's comedically worthy of laundering her boss' caftans. [24 May - 6 Jun 2021, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  9. I'd probably enjoy In Treatment more if it focused on a single case. (Anthony Ramos and Quintessa Swindell are very good as her younger clients, but their situations lack Colin's urgency) Brooke's own backstory and neuroses veer more toward soap opera. [24 May - 6 Jun 2021, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  10. The ballroom scenes are still outrageously enjoyable, but Pose finds its surest footing as a classic tearjerker, unabashedly sentimental in its happiest moments. ... Pose really is a dream come true. [24 May - 6 Jun 2021, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  11. The most powerful and devastating depiction of slavery on TV since the groundbreaking Roots, is directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter Barry Jenkins with a mournful sensitivity that's somehow lyrical as well as brutal. [24 May - 6 Jun 2021, p.8]
  12. Despite all the woo-woo, I'm rooting for Debris and hope it can keep its eye on the skies instead of the routine conspiratorial rabbit holes. [10 - 23 May 2021, p.8]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  13. With a different director tackling a decade from the 1950s to 2000s in each episode, the approach is idiosyncratic and personal, if sometimes a awfully preachy. [10 - 23 May 2021, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  14. I'm no fan of video games, but I'm hooked on the sardonic silliness of Mythic Quest. [10 - 23 May 2021, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  15. Grueling and gripping. [10-23 May 2021, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  16. With one harebrained and hair's-breadth escape after another, Mosquito Coast is suspenseful but nonsensical. ... Still Theroux is convincing and compelling. [26 Apr - 9 May 2021, p.6]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  17. This is a rare event: a tear-jerking nail-biter. [26 Apr - 9 May 2021, p.7]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  18. Fetchingly original Victorian dark fantasy. [26 Apr - 9 May 2021, p.7]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  19. Gentle but knowing satire about cultural appropriation. [26 Apr - 9 May 2021, p.7]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  20. Not-quite sibling rivalry hits new heights of hilarity in this second season of this savagely funny showcase for the British comedy duo of David Mitchell and Robert Webb. [12 - 25 Apr, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  21. Engrossing as it builds to moments of Hitchcockian suspense, the eight-part The Serpent shifts sometimes too dizzying back and forth through time as it dramatizes Sobhrah's merciless crimes. Still, you'll root for those who trying to pin him down. [12 - 25 Apr, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  22. The squirm factor often becomes too much. [12 - 25 Apr, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  23. Like a blue-collar version of The Undoing, the red herrings and shocking twists pile on relentlessly. ... By the fifth hour, I was left as breathless as Mare. [12 - 25 Apr, p.10]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  24. A documentary that more than lives up to its billing. [29 Mar - 11 Apr 2021, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  25. Affecting and sentimental eight-part import from Norway. [29 Mar - 11 Apr 2021, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  26. The cross-cultural confusions like in Chuck Lore's most recent hit Bob {Hearts) Abishola, are mostly endearing, even when some of the jokes land too hard. [29 Mar - 11 Apr 2021, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  27. Hemingway never shirks from the writer's dark side--considering his ultimate fate, echoing his own father's suicide, how could it?--but the film also makes a strong and moving case for his enduring masterworks and their insight into human nature. [29 Mar - 11 Apr 2021, p.8]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  28. You won't need a matchmaker to find the greatness within North. [15-28 Mar 2021, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  29. Hill is fine as the would-be supermom trying to do it all, bu she almost seems a supporting character when upstaged by the more colorful Tamara and her own office's irrepressible new associate, Demetria (Susuan Heyward). [15-28 Mar 2021, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  30. What Brannick digs up is beyond disturbing, leading to a killer twist at the four-part mystery's midpoint that make you question everything. [15-28 Mar 2021, p.11]
