  1. An ever-watchful Streep lurks on the margins of an irresistible season. The suburban satire has a blunter edge when things fall apart. [10 - 23 Jun 2019, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  2. Two of the three stories making up Black Mirror's fifth season offers a more hopeful vision. Things get kinker and funkier in the "Striking Vipers" episodes... In the most purely enjoyable hour, "Rachel, Jack And Ashley Too," Miley Cyrus is a delight. [10 - 23 Jun 2019, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  3. Joe Hill's expansive horror novel might have made a better movies than a sluggish series stalled in the angst of small-town Massachusetts life. [10 - 23 Jun 2019, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  4. Soppily sentimental, succumbing to Netflix bloat with 10 uneven episodes, it feels like a mopey Freeform soap when the focus turns to self-absorbed, gender-fluid millennials. [10 - 23 Jun 2019, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  5. The emotional roller coaster never lets up, careening from rage and sorrow to horror in director-cowriter Ava DuVernay's shattering four-part dramatization of the infamous Central Park Five case. ... A flawless cast. [27 May - 9 Jun 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  6. With apologies to King Kong, monkey business has never been scarier than in this tense if preachy six-part docudrama. [27 May - 9 Jun 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  7. What/If transcends junk-food TV and moves into the realm of trans-fat TV. It's definitely bad for you but good luck resisting it. [27 May - 9 Jun 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  8. Alice's vendetta against an equally lethal gangster keeps distracting poor Luther from a lurid case involving a fetishistic serial killer. It's all a bit much, but if it weren't, it wouldn't be Luther. [27 May - 9 Jun 2019, p.12]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  9. Milch's gift for raw frontier poetry, with Shakespearean soliloquies filtered through X-rated elegiac (and oh-so-satisfying) two-hour farewell. [27 May - 9 Jun 2019, p.12]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  10. Much like in Bodyguard, a jolting twist at the season's midpoint changes everything, and what initially seemed like solid and smartly done procedural becomes urgent, must-finish-now TV. [13-26 May 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  11. The fact that it really happened--and, for all of its devastation, could have been worse--makes this five-part slog of unrelieved misery even more chilling. [13-26 May 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  12. Crackling with intelligence but consumed with regrets and issues with her broken family, this neurotic Fleabag is an audacious marvel. [13-26 May 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  13. With vivid unsettling and graphically dark whimsy, executive producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov adapt this classic in a new six-hour miniseries that sharply captures the appropriately cynical tone of broad satire, interrupted by the sheer terror of airborne combat. [13-26 May 2019, p.10]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  14. Terrifically entertaining period drama. [29 Apr - 12 May 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  15. Brockmire is one for the ages, and this rocky road to redemption is a comedic grand slam. [29 Apr - 12 May 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  16. [An expert cast] helps make palatable a relentlessly twisty scenario that is rarely as shocking as it seems to think it is. Still, it's a brisk ride to a cliffhanger end. [29 Apr - 12 May 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  17. This unconventional broken family's anguish and desire for retribution against a rigged system would suffice for a gripping drama with plenty of social relevance. But The Red Line stacks the deck by introducing a third protagonist. [29 Apr - 12 May 2019, p.10]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  18. Irreverent and enjoyably brisk. ... Special is only truly memorable when it depicts Ryan's endearingly awkward embrace of his sexuality. [15-28 Apr 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  19. Serling would be proud. And I'm hooked again. [15-28 Apr 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  20. Davies's sprawling adaptation satisfies our desire for spectacle and romantic tragedy with socially relevant purpose. [15-28 Apr 2019, p.12]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  21. The drop-dead-funniest yet most suspensefully unpredictable spy thriller in recent memory. [1-14 Apr 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  22. In its last hurrah, Veep is an unimpeachable hoot. [1-14 Apr 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  23. As a character study of a sad yet dangerous man who should never be encouraged to "access some rage," Barry is a triumph--as long as you're not expecting a laugh riot. [1-14 Apr 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  24. A biographical drama every bit as daring and razzle-dazzling as the best of Fosse. [1-14 Apr 2019, p.12]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  25. Ruth Wilson delivers a tremendous performance of mounting hysteria, despair and fury. ... Gripping two-part Masterpiece drama. [18-31 Mar 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  26. The riveting and increasingly twisted scenario plays like What Ever Happened to Baby Gypsy? [18-31 Mar 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  27. Shadows' succulent mashup of the macabre and mundane remains wonderfully fresh. [18-31 Mar 2019, p.12]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  28. Saturday Night Live's marvelous Aidy Bryant brings warmth and a zen grace to a role that's still a work in progress after only six episodes. [18-31 Mar 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  29. Absorbing. ... Manhunt practically defines the procedural in its documentary-like focus on methodology. [4-17 Mar 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  30. As sleek as it is silly, Whiskey goes down smoothly if pure escapism is your tonic of choice. [4-17 Mar 2019, p.11]
