100% Corporate: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "I found it consistently clever (if sometimes obviously so), though I rarely laughed. Laughter may not be the appropriate response, in any case. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 17, 2018
68% Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Unless your mind is very fresh to these subjects, it will not be blown, but that is not to say you won't fret over the fate of the characters, or feel their feelings, or hope for the hopeful rather than hopeless outcome. " ‐ Los Angeles Times

Posted Jan 10, 2018
85% The Chi: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "But were you to remove the bodies and the bad guys from the story, there is enough individual life in these characters to make them worth knowing. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 8, 2018
77% The X-Files: Season 11 (TV, 2018) "It comes off less as an exercise in brand revival and more a genuine new season of "The X-Files." " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 3, 2018
56% LA to Vegas: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The trip is relatively free from turbulence, there are some things to see (and treats from the service cart if you're lucky), and you are back on the ground almost before you know you're flying. There is something to be said merely for not crashing. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 2, 2018
46% A Christmas Story Live! "It is a risky business turning a near-perfect thing into a somewhat less-perfect thing, but it feels churlish to cavil about so much hard work done in a celebratory spirit. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Dec 17, 2017
83% Dark: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "A beautiful, German-made minor-key tone poem in the shape of a puzzle-box sci-fi mystery television series. " ‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Lady Dynamite: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "Lady Dynamite is something much better, if harder to grasp. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 29, 2017
87% Rome : Season 1 (TV, 2005) "... "Rome" starts slowly -- indeed, it stays slow, betraying a deliberation that marks it as a BBC co-production -- but rewards attention. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 28, 2017
89% The Pacific: Miniseries (TV, 2010) "I'll say now, before I get down to picking its nits -- it has a few, and most might be predicted from the Spielberg oeuvre -- that it's a splendid production, absolutely worth watching in its 10-hour entirety. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 22, 2017
88% Godless: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "I can tell you that I did not want to curse my television, and that "Godless," the grimness of its title notwithstanding, goes somewhere almost corny, but kind of beautiful. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 22, 2017
70% No Activity: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Smart, odd and assured, "No Activity" strengthens an already decent case for expanding your discretionary television spending. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 21, 2017
100% Back: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Blackwood maintains the ambiguity, which is both more threatening and funnier than any definitive answer could be. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 17, 2017
45% S.W.A.T.: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "For many viewers, S.W.A.T. will be the very definition of comfort television; you know who you are, and have at it. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 2, 2017
88% Burn Notice: Season 1 (TV, 2007) "The dialogue is always to the point, yet it gives even the bit players enough room to create something memorable. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 27, 2017

Posted Oct 20, 2017
91% Loudermilk: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Though it feels contrived at times, or willfully outrageous - this is Peter Farrelly of the Farrelly Brothers, remember - it can also be authentically charming " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 17, 2017
58% White Famous: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "[Jay] Pharaoh, pulls his weight throughout, but working with [Michael] Rapaport, as with Coleman and the low-key excellent Jacob Ming-Trent as Floyd's wisdom-dispensing friend and roommate Ron Balls, lifts him to that vaunted next level. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 14, 2017
64% Lore: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The pleasure of a podcast comes in listening, and Lore is at its best at its most podcast-esque, when [Aaron] Mahnke is speaking, his delivery confidential yet dry and neutral in that School of Ira Glass way. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 11, 2017
77% Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later (TV, 2017) "As before, it's a knockabout mix of film styles and references, developed relationships and random inspirations; ridiculous and gross and ironic and somehow moving by turns, and sometimes all at once, it's a takeoff, but not a takedown. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 3, 2017
63% Kevin (Probably) Saves the World: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "[Jason] Ritter is a likable, able comic actor who shines in big parts and little ones, though I am not quite sure that he has been perfectly cast here. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 3, 2017
64% Ghosted: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Comedy and spooky action go well together; the flavors are mutually enhancing. Bumbling and capability go hand in shaky hand. The comedy does not injure the adventure. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 2, 2017
77% Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 9 (TV, 2017) "There has been no attempt to fix what was not broken, to innovate, to go deeper; given that one point of the show is the impossibility of meaningful change, change would be inappropriate. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 2, 2017
70% The Gifted: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "The family members, rounded out by Amy Acker as Mom, are convincingly sweet with each other - the domestic business is as well-handled as the fantastical stuff. It's nice to see! " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 28, 2017
10% Marvel's Inhumans: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "This could be a recipe for something fun; but Inhumans doesn't seem to know what it wants to be. " ‐ Los Angeles Times

Posted Sep 25, 2017
82% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 (TV, 2017-2018) "If I had any criticism of what is after all a giant gift horse, it would be that a certain lightness is missing from the initial episodes. This is remedied in the third, even as things get weird and spooky, so I am good. Live long and prosper. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 24, 2017
98% The Vietnam War: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "Its multiplicity of voices, from both sides of the war and the war at home, might make you a more thoughtful, less judgmental person in the end if you pay attention. And you should pay attention. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 18, 2017
97% American Vandal: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Few shows I've seen catch high school society, with its self-contained seriousness, as well as American Vandal does, as well as the mix of innocence and experience, confusion and certitude that mark that age. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 14, 2017
72% American Horror Story: Cult (TV, 2017) "Cult feels superficial as political commentary, its points so obvious and aggressively delivered that it feels at times close to self-parody. It's hard to know how seriously to take it. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 5, 2017
93% The Tick: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The show is clever and crazy in the right proportions; it is always, in its outsized way, human and believable. It's everything I like in a thing like this. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 25, 2017
100% Star Wars Rebels: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) "Whatever the characters are up to, however cute or sentimental the business, it is smartly designed and cinematically staged, and not hard to enjoy. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 21, 2017
90% Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season 1 (TV, 2008-2009) "Watching Yoda take apart a squad of tanks with his little lightsaber is just as much fun as it's supposed to be. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 21, 2017
83% Comrade Detective: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It's a sketch the size of a miniseries, a molehill made into a mountain. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 16, 2017
75% Get Shorty: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It's well-made and beautifully played, and one welcomes, for a change, the story of a person attempting to pull himself out of a life of crime instead of one sliding into it. We have had quite enough of those. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 11, 2017
85% Mr. Mercedes: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The players keep warm what could be a chilly exercise. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 10, 2017

Posted Aug 9, 2017
No Score Yet Swedish Dicks: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Like many entertainments from other lands, it seems to belong to a different time as well, a time when things that are meant to be funny here may have been funnier. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 8, 2017
94% The Sinner: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "[Biel] gives a committed performance, measured even in its required extremes, one that the film's doggedly arty execution and relentless creepiness do not keep from registering as genuine. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 2, 2017
50% The Last Tycoon: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Melodrama has its pleasures, and some viewers will doubtless happily be caught in the stories' myriad threads. And some performances win out over the material. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 27, 2017
91% Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy "It makes no attempt to be a complete portrait, but rather concentrates on her goodness and good works, as a person and a public figure. There is sadness in it, but no scandal. I am good with this version. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 24, 2017
64% Ozark: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Ozark does most things right. Not every plot point feels completely plausible, but the show looks good and plays well; the writing is crisp and not too colorful; the performances are unforced and believable. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 20, 2017
70% I'm Sorry: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "This is a show about what happens when the compulsively comic mind meets the casually funny (or humorless) one, and what can seem the astonishing willingness of the professional comedian to violate taste and decorum. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 13, 2017
22% Friends From College: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "If you regard the show as a series of unconnected short plays or sketches, rather than as the long-term working out of any of these characters' twisted-together fates, it becomes automatically more successful. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 13, 2017
86% Tour De Pharmacy "Apart from the generally good jokes and the amusing imitations of period style, what makes Tour de Pharmacy good company is the overarching sense of play. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 10, 2017
59% Will: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "The most effective option, I think, is to treat as much of it as possible as comedy. That works pretty well. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 10, 2017
33% Gypsy: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Almost nothing about Gypsy feels authentic. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 30, 2017
100% Hood Adjacent With James Davis: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "But good humor tramples borders. The jokes travel, and the atmosphere is friendly. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
