  1. This sometimes feels less a game than a panance. ... Still, its heart is in the right place. [17 - 30 Aug 2020, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  2. This isn't just a tough race. It's life-affirming. [17 - 30 Aug 2020, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  3. Surreal and tonally muddled, this stylish gore-saturated series is capable of provoking screams and laughs and eye-rolls within the same scenes. [17 - 30 Aug 2020, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  4. Grisly and gripping. [3 - 16 Aug 2020, p.5]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  5. Britannia is fast-paced escapism for those who thought Vikings a tad tame. [3 - 16 Aug 2020, p.5]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  6. You may not get all the parochial in-jokes, but there's a universal appeal in watching clowns happily make fools of themselves. [3 - 16 Aug 2020, p.5]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  7. The freewheeling and often frantically rib-tickling Muppets Now is as close as these puppet masters have come in a while to recapturing the joyfully anarchic spirit of the classic The Muppet Show of the 1970s. [3 - 16 Aug 2020, p.4]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  8. The tone of this darkly compelling limited series largely sidesteps cheesy melodrama for an adult, provocative study of class differences and social engineering. [20 Jul - 2 Aug 2020, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  9. Terrifically twisty and intensely suspenseful. [20 Jul - 2 Aug 2020, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  10. [Little Voice tells] its starry-eyed story in brisk half-hour chapters that fly by so quickly you may not have time to be embarrassed by the occasional tear that gets jerked. [20 Jul - 2 Aug 2020, p.8]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  11. The new Zone is still rather a mixed bag, though one brimming with imaginative pleasures and smart casting. [6 - 19 Jul 2020, p.5]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  12. 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]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  13. Even when you empathize with Victor's growing pains, you may wish it didn't feel so much like a life lesson. [22 Jun - 5 Jul 2020, p.76]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  14. A more realistic and sordidly satisfying [Perry Mason]. ... Rhys is a marvelous Perry. [22 Jun - 5 Jul 2020, p.6]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  15. 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
  16. Riveting. ... Peet scorches the screen. [8 - 21 Jun 2020, p.5]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  17. 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]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  18. An earnestly amusing show that isn't afraid to wear its heart on its star-spangled sleeve. [8 - 21 Jun 2020, p.4]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  19. Homecoming build to a shocking and satisfying finale that you're not likely ever to forget. [25 May - 7 Jun 2020, p.3]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  20. Boldly seriocomic. ... Rich portrait of an underexplored culture. [25 May - 7 Jun 2020, p.3]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  21. The handsomely produced Barkskins becomes a grueling but routine melodrama of corruption, savagery and betrayal. [25 May - 7 Jun 2020, p.3]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  22. Endearing even when she's being aggravating, Kendrick lets us in on Darby's deep-rooted insecurities. [25 May - 7 Jun 2020, p.2]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  23. Authenticity is the key to this slow-burning but mesmerizing celebration of a world where life is a messy improvisation. ... The Eddy evokes an art-house sensibility with handheld and jittery camerawork that swirls to the music. But there's a gripping pulp aspect tot he narrative. [11 - 24 May 2020, p.7]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  24. 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
  25. 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
  26. 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
  27. 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
  28. Achieves new depths of feelings - and hilarity - in its second season. [27 Apr - 10 May 2020, p. 11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  29. 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
  30. Fast-paced, very funny and ultimately life-affirming, Upload is (you guessed it) to die for. [27 Apr - 10 May 2020, p. 11]
