3/4 100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 (TV, 2018) "Handmaid's big improvement over the excellent first season is that it more seamlessly toggles between scenes with Offred and the rest of the characters... Still, there's only so much trauma audiences can take before it becomes too much. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Apr 16, 2018
3/4 94% Westworld: Season 2 (TV, 2018) "The second season feels less like a freewheeling experiment and more like a TV show that knows what it's doing and where it's going. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Apr 13, 2018
3.5/4 100% Killing Eve: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Eve gives [Sandra Oh], often relegated to supporting roles, the opportunity to shine as a lead, and the mix of intelligence and mania she gives Eve is magnetic. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Apr 6, 2018
2/4 83% The Last O.G.: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The comedy has an overall sense of melancholy that drags it down and wastes its talented cast, especially Tiffany Haddish, one of the most exciting new voices in Hollywood, who's relegated to the role of angry ex and is almost never given funny material. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Apr 3, 2018
98% The Americans: Season 6 (TV, 2018) "One marvelous and heartbreaking hour into its 10-episode final season, a happy ending for anyone in the Jennings family seems so far away. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 29, 2018
100% Nailed It: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "What might sound like a mean-spirited and cruel show is actually one of the sweetest, most genuinely fun food shows out there. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 29, 2018
1/4 40% Alex, Inc.: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The dialogue sounds nothing like normal human speech; it is far too on the nose and hammy. The way Alex builds a business and a podcast is farcical. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 27, 2018
100% Wild Wild Country: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "What seems like a straightforward story of culture clash spins into something more disturbing, engrossing and gross than you could possibly imagine. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 26, 2018
3/4 76% Trust: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "You can count on its pulpy drama, even if the fictional Gettys couldn't count on each other. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 23, 2018
3.5/4 98% Barry: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "It's an out-there concept that results in a series that's simultaneously hopeful and incredibly cynical, comedic and violent, heightened and grounded. And Hader is the perfect man to balance these disparate elements. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 23, 2018
1.5/4 62% Station 19: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Station is more a cheap facsimile of what made Grey's tick than a successful spinoff. It tries to ignite something new for the Grey's world, but just ends up flaming out. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 21, 2018
68% American Idol: Season 16 (TV, 2018) "Four episodes into the reality competition, it's clear that the pop star's vibe is just wrong for the show. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 20, 2018
96% Queer Eye: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Queer Eye tries to walk the line of balancing entertainment with politics and social justice, but its approach risks making both the social agenda and the entertainment objective fail. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 19, 2018
57% Instinct: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "... [Instinct] tries to capture Castle-style charm but mostly falls flat. Cumming, however, is always a treat, and does his best to elevate the show. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 19, 2018
94% This Is Us: Season 2 Episode 18 "It was beautifully acted and emotionally satisfying, but it also deliberately (and frustratingly) kept things from the audience in order to up the melodrama and create new mysteries. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 14, 2018
2/4 58% Rise: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "... Rise feels like a rehash, a collection of stories we've already seen, presented with a slightly darker palette. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 13, 2018
2/4 78% Roseanne: Season 10 (TV, 2018) "It's still a series about family and love and acceptance, and if you're looking for familiar faces and easy watching, Roseanne will probably satisfy. For those looking for something sharper, ABC has plenty of other family comedies to choose from. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 9, 2018
63% Champions: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Despite strong talent behind it, the comedy is cringeworthy and tedious. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 8, 2018
87% Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 2 (TV, 2018) "... Ritter remains exceptional in the role, and her performance is worth coming back for. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 8, 2018
20% Sundays With Alec Baldwin: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Baldwin tries his level best, but the show is too slight to really click. It just might not be his Sunday. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 7, 2018
2.5/4 37% Life Sentence: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The relentless cheer can be annoying, but Hale's charms, and the appeal of the wider cast mostly smooths it over. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 7, 2018
100% iZombie: Season 4 (TV, 2018) "iZombie entered this season while still retaining its signature comedic style (that zombie defense contractor is named Fillmore Graves, get it?) and strong writing. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 2, 2018
69% McMafia: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The premiere is a little slow to start, but once all the pieces are in place and the action picks up, the episode sucks you in and kicks off a solid crime drama. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 1, 2018
99% Atlanta: Robbin' Season (TV, 2018) "The second season is a worthy follow-up to the first, a tighter story with fewer standalone episodes, which is neither good nor bad, just a different and interesting path. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 1, 2018
83% Corporate: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "A spiritual successor to 1999 cult film Office Space, Corporate is a bleak and absurdist workplace comedy with Mr. Robot's life-outlook and color palette and 30 Rock's sense of humor. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 27, 2018
3.5/4 96% The Looming Tower: Miniseries (TV, 2018) "The sharply written and acted series keeps you hooked, even though you know the story ends horrifically. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 27, 2018
84% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 9 "Sunday's midseason premiere was, essentially, a 56-minute exercise in thumb-twiddling and time-wasting. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 26, 2018
3/4 62% Good Girls: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "From its opening scene, Good Girls is just a lot of fun. The series doesn't break new ground, yet it feels fresh, as if someone gave a good hard shake to the prevalent male antihero narrative and made it interesting again. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 23, 2018
2/4 77% Seven Seconds: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "... while it tries to make big statements about police and race relations in America, it gets lost in a sea of unlikable characters and predictable plotlines. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 22, 2018
100% Chris Rock: Tamborine (2018) "Tamborine is rife with political humor and pointed observations on race in Rock's usual style, but the special is mostly about Rock himself, a self-reflective piece in which he owns up to his mistakes. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 14, 2018
24% Here and Now: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Here and Now is as bland and confusing as its title suggests. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 8, 2018
2/4 65% Altered Carbon: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Carbon also is often gratuitously violent and sexual, leaning on its gore and nudity as filler when the story drags. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 1, 2018
2/4 61% A.P. Bio: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Bio sits awkwardly between conventional and weird: It's neither straightforward or offbeat enough to strike a consistent tone. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 31, 2018
100% One Day at a Time: Season 2 (TV, 2018) "With exceptional performances from the legendary Rita Moreno (as matriarch Lydia) and Justina Machado (as outgoing single-mom Penelope), every episode is an absolute joy. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 26, 2018
2.5/4 84% Mosaic: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Mosaic is a decent murder mystery. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 26, 2018
2/4 30% Our Cartoon President: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Overall, Cartoon comes off as slight, dated and unsustainable. Watching one episode is enough to get the point. Watching nine more feels unnecessary. Tuning into Colbert's monologue seems more fun. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 26, 2018
1.5/4 59% The Resident: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Self-important, predictable and inconsistent, the series delivers bland stories about terrible people playing God just because they can. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 19, 2018
3/4 66% The Alienist: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "There's no shortage of serial killer dramas, and if The Alienist feels familiar, it makes up for it by presenting its story in a striking package. And you won't want to look away. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 19, 2018
3/4 97% 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
55% 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
81% 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 67% 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 98% 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, 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 91% 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
