3/4 100% Black Lightning: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Its themes are a bit heavy for a superhero show, but it still features fun, dazzling action sequences. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 16, 2018
50% Alone Together: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Unfortunately, their vapid obsession with looking and being perfect quickly grows tiresome in the premiere, which has few laughs. Still, while the tone may be a little grating, the pair has good chemistry and timing. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 12, 2018
77% My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The episode concludes with Obama and Letterman staging themselves walking offstage together... It's a sweet moment that serves as a reminder why it's nice but not vital to have Letterman back on our screens. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 12, 2018
3/4 68% Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Electric Dreams works because there's a fascinating nugget of insight about humanity in every episode, even if they don't always succeed. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 11, 2018
1.5/4 17% The Four: Battle for Stardom: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The biggest drawback to the frenzied structure is that it's hard to connect with any contestant, so its much-hyped battles have no emotional weight. The judges are unafraid to dole out harsh criticism, but in this context it feels kind of pointless. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 8, 2018
3/4 97% The End of the F***ing World: Series 1 (TV, 2018) "... it's here, it's weird, and it ends up being really wonderful. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 4, 2018
3.5/4 85% The Chi: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "... superb new drama... " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 4, 2018
100% Planet Earth II: Miniseries (TV, 2017) ""Cities," which follows groups of animals that have adapted to live in dense metropolises, is as beautifully filmed and edifying as the rest of the Planet Earth episodes, but with a more powerful ending than usual. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 27, 2017
1.5/4 46% A Christmas Story Live! "Although the cast is quite appealing and the show well staged (with hardly a hiccup or blooper), it couldn't liven up the flat material. A three-hour runtime made it a slog, and the musical was overstuffed with songs. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 17, 2017
2.5/4 93% Black Mirror: Season 4 (TV, 2016-2017) "... Black Mirror is decidedly mixed, managing occasionally to find brilliance but most often dwelling in the mediocre. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 14, 2017
3/4 93% The Crown: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "It may be a fairy tale with the cracks showing, but it's still a fairy tale. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 7, 2017
3/4 100% Psych: The Movie "... like visiting an old friend, it's a little awkward at times, but overall it's an absolute joy and quintessentially the Psych we know and love. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 6, 2017
79% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 7 "As frustrating as the character and his speaking pattern can be, actor Josh McDermitt turned in great work this week as Eugene slowly breaks down over the course of the episode. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 3, 2017
3/4 96% The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It's hard to take your eyes off of Midge Maisel when she takes the stage. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 29, 2017
33% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 6 "Even the best... of the bunch make the worst and most ill-advised decisions, and it's exasperating to watch. Coupled with the wheel-spinning of this slow episode, "The King, the Widow, and Rick" ended up being a dull and frustrating outing for TWD. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 26, 2017
3.5/4 87% She's Gotta Have It: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Pop culture is cluttered with rehashes, but maybe this is just the one that well, we gotta have. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 22, 2017
3/4 88% Godless: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "It's an operatic, juicy drama that thrives by earnestly embracing the best -and side-stepping the worst - Western tropes. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 21, 2017
3/4 81% Marvel's Runaways: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) " It's a cheeky, splashy and addictive coming-of-age adventure that feels at once fresh and comfortingly familiar. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 20, 2017
83% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 5 "Although The Walking Dead has introduced and killed off its fair share of characters over the past eight years, it just can't make Negan and his minions either interesting or remotely sympathetic. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 19, 2017
100% The Vampire Diaries: Season 8 (TV, 2016-2017) "Either way, it's the happy ending they've always wanted. Excuse us, we'll be over in the corner, sobbing. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 16, 2017
1.5/4 62% Marvel's The Punisher: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Unfortunately, the series is mostly a dull, superficial shoot-em-up. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 16, 2017
3/4 79% Future Man: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It all comes together as a light and giddy comedy that lovingly pokes fun at an often self-serious genre. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 13, 2017
88% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 4 "Khary Payton does great work for the whole hour and is especially affecting at the moment Ezekiel has given up his Shakespearean dialect for slang out of pure terror and guilt. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 12, 2017
52% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 3 "Hopefully, the cliffhanger ending means next week's episode will move on because presenting the 'all out war' from this perspective isn't working out too well so far. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 6, 2017
2.5/4 74% SMILF: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "What SMILF does well, it does really well. There are signs of a good series, with the potential to improve. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 2, 2017
3.5/4 99% Alias Grace: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "It plays with viewers' expectations about PBS Masterpiece-style television. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 2, 2017
1.5/4 45% S.W.A.T.: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Ultimately, S.W.A.T. can't really distinguish itself. It's a standard cop show that doesn't add much new either to the franchise or the wider genre. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 1, 2017
50% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 2 "It's frustrating to see the series stumble so quickly after a promising start. And it's even more frustrating to see it dig back into the past instead of working with something new. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 29, 2017
3/4 94% Stranger Things: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "... a fitting follow-up to the first, Netflix's supernatural drama, set in the 1980s, that dominated Internet chatter last summer. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 23, 2017
88% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 1 ""Mercy" is nowhere near the best episode The Walking Dead has ever aired, but it's an effective season premiere that manages to add some energy into the aging series and at least partially hits the reset button. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 22, 2017
60% The Walking Dead: Season 7 (TV, 2016-2017) "If AMC wants The Walking Dead to last for years to come, as its producers say, it needs to kill Negan, and quickly. And it needs to learn from the mistakes it made during his seemingly endless tenure on the series. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 21, 2017
1.5/4 58% White Famous: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "What could have been a smart and incisive look at Hollywood is instead a sluggish, shallow and often sexist knockoff of Entourage. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 13, 2017
2.5/4 96% Mindhunter: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Once they get going... there are some compelling storylines within the series. " ‐ USA Today

Posted Oct 9, 2017
1.5/4 38% The Brave: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The biggest complaint is that its characters are not engaging or deep enough to draw viewers in and make them care about the missions on a deeper level. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 6, 2017
1.5/4 63% Kevin (Probably) Saves the World: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The spiritually-focused series aims for feel-good with a story about a down-and-out man doing good, but inevitably misses the mark. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 2, 2017
3.5/4 70% The Gifted: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "In The Gifted, the allegory is broader, with the powerful and secretive police force tapping into fears about authoritarianism and state-sanctioned discrimination. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 2, 2017
3/4 83% The Mayor: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "... the comedy is a sweet political parody that celebrates the best in people. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Oct 2, 2017
58% Ten Days in the Valley: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Sedgwick is a strong choice for the role and succeeds in it, but her talents aren't quite enough to redeem the series... " ‐ USA Today
Posted Sep 28, 2017
95% This Is Us: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "... the same strong, consistent and emotionally devastating format that it honed so well in Season 1. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Sep 27, 2017
88% Will & Grace: Season 9 (TV, 2017) "The fast-paced dialogue, frequent pop-culture references and cast chemistry remain. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Sep 27, 2017
2.5/4 64% Law & Order: True Crime: The Menendez Murders (TV, 2017) "Ultimately, with a sensational story and a strong lawyer championing her cause, there's plenty here to sustain Law & Order fans. Even if they already know how this trial ends. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Sep 25, 2017
3/4 75% Young Sheldon: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "The sitcom has a chance to lure in new viewers, who are put off by Big Bang's aggressive studio audience laughter or joke style. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Sep 22, 2017
2/4 58% The Good Doctor: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It needs to be more than a medical drama with a gimmick. It needs more from its supporting characters and stories. It needs to show other sides of its protagonist. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Sep 22, 2017
2.5/4 65% Me, Myself & I: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The series has an optimistic tone that, for now, refrains from being inauthentic. But maintaining that careful balance will be tricky. " ‐ USA Today

3/4 92% The Deuce: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The Deuce is the kind of smart, well-written and character-driven series that won't be overwhelmed by its sex-heavy concept, nor too reliant on it to sustain interest. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Sep 7, 2017
3.5/4 74% Top of the Lake: China Girl (TV, 2017) "A bold new installment that often exceeds the excellence of its predecessor, with an even more primal, taut and engrossing story that reveals new depths in its protagonist. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Sep 7, 2017
2/4 20% The Orville: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The final result is less a parody than a poor knockoff of Trek, an attempt at humorous homage that gets lost in space. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Sep 6, 2017
89% Game of Thrones: Season 7 Episode 7 "While "The Dragon and the Wolf" had many sins, perhaps its worst was being safe and predictable, letting loose "twists" that were anticipated or even wished for by fans. " ‐ USA Today
