65% Law & Order: True Crime: The Menendez Murders (TV, 2017) "If these two episodes don't promise anything terribly deep, they're packed with enough good performances and details to make us curious about what comes next. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Sep 24, 2017
92% The Deuce: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Even with its flaws, the skilled cast, including Lawrence Gilliard Jr. as an NYPD cop, makes The Deuce compelling. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Sep 10, 2017
89% Game of Thrones: Season 7 Episode 7 "Hackers be damned, it was a finale that, like the season that preceded it, moved fast and offered huge plot developments that fans who had checked out finale predictions were probably expecting, but were satisfying to watch, anyway. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Aug 27, 2017
55% The Last Tycoon: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "At its best, The Last Tycoon is an absorbing trip back to Hollywood's not-so-Golden Age. And even when it slips, it's still pretty good melodrama. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jul 20, 2017
94% Game of Thrones: Season 7 (TV, 2017) "For me, the long-awaited season opener did what it needed to do. With one glaring exception. I refer, of course, to the great Ed Sheeran cameo disaster. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jul 17, 2017
100% America in Color: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "The history is mostly a familiar overview, but the straightforward narration, well delivered by actor Liev Schreiber covers the big picture and some smaller, but intriguing, details. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jul 11, 2017
100% The Defiant Ones: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "Music fans looking for a stylishly made documentary that celebrates two influential record producers, and overflows with rock, hip hop, and pop superstars, should find The Defiant Ones breezy summer viewing. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jul 10, 2017
58% Snowfall: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "With the story jumping from scenes of depraved creeps inhaling cocaine to dimly lit conversations about criminal schemes, Snowfall both tries to do too much and doesn't do enough. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jul 5, 2017
46% Prime Suspect: Tennison: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The miniseries ... never gets off the ground. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jun 26, 2017
100% Broadchurch: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "After such a rewarding final season, it's hard to accept that this is the last we'll see of Hardy and Miller. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jun 23, 2017
94% GLOW: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Like Tootsie, GLOW has a comic, compassionate tone. The women who make up the GLOW wrestling troupe for the fledgling TV show are as diverse as can be, and even as they embrace wildly stereotypical personas, the show respects their individual quirks. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jun 16, 2017
100% Twin Peaks: The Return Episode 2 "Through it all, Lynch's sound design puts low, ominous hums in the background, or sometimes, there's no background noise at all, which is even more eerie. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jun 6, 2017
100% Twin Peaks: The Return Episode 1 "Based on the first two hours, Lynch in particular is giving us the surreal, dream/nightmare images he's become famous for. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jun 6, 2017
69% House of Cards: Season 5 (TV, 2017) "By this point, the actors are comfortably in their element. Spacey is as assured as ever, even if Frank's occasional addresses to the camera seem to come out of nowhere. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted May 30, 2017
72% The Wizard of Lies (2017) "The Wizard of Lies spends much of its overlong two hours and 15 minutes running time repeating how Madoff's crimes victimized members of his family. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted May 15, 2017
94% American Gods: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "If you're a fan of Gaiman's work, and patient with slow-moving scenes of thinly developed characters speechifying, you may like it. Others might want to proceed with caution. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Apr 29, 2017
95% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The Handmaid's Tale isn't just the best original show Hulu has ever done. It's one of the most impressive series of the year. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Apr 21, 2017
67% The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks "It's a shame The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks wasn't adapted as a miniseries. The amazing true story deserves an adaptation that does justice both to Henrietta Lacks, and to Skloot's achievement. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Apr 18, 2017
94% Fargo: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "What makes Fargo so consistently extraordinary is how beautifully it balances every storytelling element, from narrative voice, to evocative images to superbly cast actors delivering memorable performances. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Apr 14, 2017
97% Better Call Saul: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "Better Call Saul is made with craft and care, and it's obvious everyone involved wants the show to be a fitting companion piece to Breaking Bad. Here's hoping Season 3 gets things moving in that direction. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Apr 10, 2017
0% The Kennedys - After Camelot: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The Kennedys: After Camelot ends the tacky Kennedy miniseries trend. Hasn't the family suffered enough? " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Apr 3, 2017
91% Feud: Bette and Joan (TV, 2017) "As a saga about how Hollywood builds up idols and then throws them aside, Feud: Bette and Joan is no Sunset Boulevard. But it's a delicious cocktail of nostalgia, gossip and star power. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Mar 6, 2017
92% Big Little Lies: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "Unlike some self-consciously glum prestige TV dramas, Big Little Lies isn't afraid to be entertaining, mixing intimate, dark drama with sly social commentary. It's one of the best shows of this still-young year. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Feb 17, 2017
93% Girls: Season 6 (TV, 2017) "The clamor about Girls may have died down, which is a relief. Based on the first three episodes, Dunham is ready to end her story with satirical precision and self-aware compassion. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Feb 9, 2017
90% Legion: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Legion may not show us characters saving the world or running around in costume. But it's super all the same. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Feb 2, 2017
74% Santa Clarita Diet: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Santa Clarita Diet deserves points for energy and staying faithful to its nutty premise. It's worth checking out -- just make sure you're not having dinner while watching. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jan 30, 2017
82% Victoria: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's no Downton Abbey (especially during tedious scenes involving the palace staff), but Victoria has enough glittering chandeliers, glowing candlelight, luxurious furnishings, sumptuous gowns and dazzling jewels to make it undemanding, cozy viewing. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jan 13, 2017
77% The Young Pope: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "I'd happily trade one of the scenes in which the action (such as it is) comes to a halt while we admire the beauty of the camera gliding around the Vatican for more coherent storytelling and characterizations that make sense. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jan 13, 2017
96% Marvel's Luke Cage: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Creator Cheo Hodari Coker gives us not so much a portrait of a superhero as a fleshed-out vision of the Harlem community. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Dec 31, 2016
100% Transparent: Season 3 (TV, 2016) "In Season 3, the superb writing and performances make Transparent more satisfying than ever. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Dec 31, 2016
69% The Walking Dead: Season 7 Episode 1 "The most shocking reveal was just how low executive producer and showrunner Scott M. Gimple and Walking Dead comics creator Robert Kirkman are willing to go for the sake of sensationalism and torture porn. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Oct 24, 2016
63% Killing Reagan (2016) "Killing Reagan, which airs on the National Geographic Channel on Sunday, Oct. 16, feels rushed and incomplete, compressing this historic episode into a flat pancake of pointlessness. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Oct 14, 2016
100% Insecure: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Issa Rae made a splash with her web series, Awkward Black Girl, and she brings boundless energy and likability to this new series. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Oct 10, 2016
62% Divorce: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Divorce captures the pain, anger and humiliation that comes with break-ups... But it's also darkly funny, and smart enough to make the characters... messed up but likable that we feel sympathetic, frustrated and ultimately compassionate for both of them. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Oct 10, 2016
88% Westworld: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Westworld is a fascinating exploration of what it means to be human, and a thoughtful critique of violent entertainment (while also being violent entertainment.) It's one of the most ambitious, intriguing shows of the year. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Oct 10, 2016
71% Masters of Sex: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "Maybe Season 4 will get better overnight, but based on the early sampling, Masters of Sex feels like a show that would have been better had it wrapped up the story concisely, as a limited series. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Sep 12, 2016
40% Tyrant: Season 3 (TV, 2016) "For every slight improvement... "Tyrant" still fizzles more often than it sizzles. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jul 11, 2016
91% Downton Abbey: Season 6 Episode 9 "Fellowes tied up the story with a glistening bow, generously delivering happy endings to one and all. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jul 1, 2016
80% Downton Abbey: Season 5 (TV, 2015) "Downton Abbey Season 5 may cover some familiar ground, but its steps are so lively, the company so delightful, and the scenery so fine, it's a trip well worth taking. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jun 29, 2016
35% Roadies: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Crowe lays on the I-love-rock-and-roll sentimentality, and commits that classic Writing 101 mistake - he keeps telling, not showing, why the music world is special, and why people sacrifice themselves to it. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jun 29, 2016
100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 10 "It was fast-paced, action-packed and so good, it left us wanting more. And it was a sensational ending to what has been, overall, one of the best seasons in Game of Thrones history. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jun 27, 2016
98% Roots: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "The pain Roots dramatizes also still feels unfortunately relevant, when cries of discrimination and racism remain very much in the news. It may be historical drama, but Roots is a reminder that black-and-white divides in the U.S. aren't history. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted May 27, 2016
86% Doctor Thorne: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "If you're still clutching your handkerchief and missing Downton Abbey, you could do worse than Doctor Thorne. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted May 25, 2016
100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 4 "Judging from Sunday's Episode 4, "Book of the Stranger," being free from Martin's volumes is the best thing that's happened to "Game of Thrones" in years. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted May 16, 2016
90% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 2 "At the end of "Home," Episode 2 in Season 6, fans got their wish. After Melisandre's ritual of resurrection, it at first looked as though her efforts weren't successful. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted May 2, 2016
93% The Night Manager: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "The Night Manager combines luxurious production with razor-sharp writing, and it's brought to life by a brilliant cast, headed by Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Apr 19, 2016
80% Confirmation (2016) "What keeps Confirmation watchable are vivid performances by a terrific cast. Washington - freed from the overacting mandate that seems part of the Scandal cast playbook - is subtle and moving as Hill. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Apr 15, 2016
100% Jackie Robinson: Season One (TV, 2016) "Robinson lived a historic life. But the achievement of Jackie Robinson is that it shows us the man in full dimension, placing him in rich context. " ‐ Oregonian

100% Jackie Robinson "Robinson lived a historic life. But the achievement of Jackie Robinson is that it shows us the man in full dimension, placing him in rich context. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Apr 8, 2016
43% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 16 "It takes a lot to end the worst "The Walking Dead" season ever with a finale that was even worse than what's come before. How bad was "Last Day on Earth"? Let's count the ways. " ‐ Oregonian
