    • TV Guide Magazine
  5. 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
  6. A biographical drama every bit as daring and razzle-dazzling as the best of Fosse. [1-14 Apr 2019, p.12]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  7. 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

    • TV Guide Magazine
  9. Shadows' succulent mashup of the macabre and mundane remains wonderfully fresh. [18-31 Mar 2019, p.12]
    • TV Guide Magazine

    • TV Guide Magazine
  11. Absorbing. ... Manhunt practically defines the procedural in its documentary-like focus on methodology. [4-17 Mar 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  12. As sleek as it is silly, Whiskey goes down smoothly if pure escapism is your tonic of choice. [4-17 Mar 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  13. Unexpectedly moving. [4-17 Mar 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  14. [Georgia's] quest is often compelling, but I found myself much more captivated by the traumatic journey of Adidja, kidnapped from a village and recruited as a child soldier, exposed to violence too early. [4-17 Mar 2019, p.10]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  15. An intense and immersive, if overly familiar, prison drama. [18 Feb - 3 Mar 2019, p.15]
    • TV Guide Magazine

    • TV Guide Magazine
  17. And yet for all of its barbed and scatological humor--be warned, there's a colonoscopy episode--there's an unvarnished honesty to Better Things that has a way of grabbing and moving you just when you least expect it. [18 Feb - 3 Mar 2019, p.15]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  18. Funny, touching and comforting in its relevance for these fractious times. [4-17 Feb 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  19. A raunchy comedy of soul-degrading envy and desperation, with an unexpectedly sweet core. [4-17 Feb 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  20. It feels more like a post-Dickens True Detective, putting fabled sleuth Hercule Poirot and his cloudy past under the microscope. [4-17 Feb 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  21. It's a slow road to apocalypse in the absorbing, if derivative, opening chapters of this Stephen King wannabe based on the epic horror trilogy by Justin Cronin. [21 Jan - 3 Feb 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  22. Luxurious and intelligent escapism though hobbled by Palmer's less-than-bewitching blandness. Goode more than compensates with his usual grace while hinting at his inner beast. He's the ghoul to watch. [21 Jan - 3 Feb 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  23. Broadly satirical. ... Thankfully, you don't have to like these jerks to enjoy them. [21 Jan - 3 Feb 2019, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  24. The writing can lay the nihilism on a bit thick. ... And yet there's no denying the spellblindingly ominous mood cast over six episodes. [21 Jan - 3 Feb 2019, p.12]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  25. With everyone playing to the camera, from actors who break the fourth wall to their real-life counterparts who sit for interviews, the result is system overload. Boom is entertaining yet can be exhausting as it is illuminating. [7-20 Jan 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  26. This grown-up Roswell has its moments but mostly reminds us how hard it is to recapture the magic of the original. [7-20 Jan 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  27. There's little surprise or suspense in these by-the-book anecdotes of weird phenomena in the skies and sinister cover-ups on the ground. [7-20 Jan 2019, p.11]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  28. [Nic Pizzolatto] puts story and character first in this long-awaited comeback season. ... Even when the script takes heady philosophical detours into poetry and Einstein, it never loses sight of the toll of the investigation takes on those charged with solving the case. [7-20 Jan 2019, p.10]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  29. Olivia Cooke vibrantly inhabits what little soul the ruthlessly opportunistic Becky Sharp possesses in this irreverent seven-part adaptation of the Thackeray classic. [10 - 23 Dec 2018, p.9]
    • TV Guide Magazine
  30. Perfectly delightful second season. [10 - 23 Dec 2018, p.8]
