    Rookie is full of familiar cop-show types and tropes. But instead of murder-solving detectives, it's on the fast-paced beat of uniformed officers.

    There are moments when Camping feels a little pointlessly misanthropic, and others where it just feels random. In the middle are a few laughs, a few good performances and a little bit of that "Girls" sense of humor.

    Unfortunately, it feels as if the new writers have outright disdain for the source material, so arbitrary and widespread are these changes. ... Not all of the changes are problematic. Matching the sisters' fight against demons with the #MeToo movement and other feminist protests against the patriarchy is a smart move, if executed with a heavy hand in the premiere. Setting the series on a college campus is an ideal way to bring those social and and supernatural issues together.

    It's a prime example of "prestige TV" run amok: all glitz, A-list stars and exotic filming locations with nothing substantive underneath. Hacky, navel-gazing and self-aggrandizing.

    American works because the writers often push its predictable plot lines further than you'd expect. ... The casting is excellent, and Ezra is a brilliant find as a relatively unknown British actor (not that you'd know: his American accent is impeccable).

    A sweet, surprisingly watchable series that essentially gives "Joan of Arcadia" a Silicon Valley tuneup.

    The premise of Happy Together could get stale quickly, or worse, start resembling the absurd and corny "Montana." But the cast is so delightful and the jokes come so easily that maybe Styles' 20 months can be stretched into many years of television.

    Because Murphy is in a preachy, sanctimonious state of mind, the show can seem smug. But when the episodes slow down and focus on Murphy's relationship with her son, or her internal struggle with the new world of journalism, there's a spark of the old magic.

    Call it feel-bad feel-good TV, or uncomfortable comfort food. And, more often than not, Things is a little comforting.

    The best medical dramas have something going for them besides the blood and scrubs. This one is simply dead on arrival.

    [The death of someone close to Magnum is] a decent enough mystery to keep your action sweet tooth satisfied. Advances in special effects and stunt work since the 1980s are on display, and at least in this first episode, CBS spares no expense at highlighting them, from a HALO (high altitude) jump that opens the episode to the explosions that end it. The show's biggest weakness lies in its woefully surface-level characters, especially (and crucially) Magnum and Higgins. Hernandez is charming but bland, and the writers give him few other identifiers.

    Stone and Hill are skilled, magnetic actors who ground the series even at its most absurd. ... In Maniac, form follows function, and as its heroes reckon with the confusing beauty of their own minds, the viewer reckons with the strange allure of this oddball TV show.

    Long-winded, tedious and full of metaphors, allusions and symbols piled on top of each other in a literary garbage pile, The First is an unintentional parody of the expensive, self-important shows that somehow get the label "prestige TV."
    • 67 Metascore
    • 63 Kelly Lawler
    When the show's sense of humor becomes more whimsical than dour, a heaviness is lifted; the series shines in more understated, earnest moments. When the series tries to do too much, it's really just, well, kidding itself.

    The series' biggest weakness: Often it takes the safest, most predictable option in crafting its narrative, sometimes veering into the cliche. But You is still reasonably captivating, right from its demented beginning, and cliffhanger endings make it an ideal binge-watch. The series really hits its stride in Episode 4.

    Rock feels like someone else's attempt to make a Stephen King story, even though the author is involved as a producer (as he often is on such adaptations).

    Chenoweth delivers one of her best performances as Lavinia. ... Between its bright color palette, sunny setting and jaunty tone, Trial is a perfect complement for a glass of lemonade and a midsummer heat wave.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 50 Kelly Lawler
    Although the eight-episode series eventually perks up, in the seven parts made available for review it's often a lazy, dreary summer mystery that feels exploitative of the violence it depicts. It's a disappointing adaptation of its source material, with all the gravitas of a trashy beach read.

    It's all very pretty, but it doesn't conceal a rather pokey and dull series. Yellowstone is a rote family drama that's too self-important for its own good.

    Its great strengths are its restraint and simplicity. The show unfolds slowly and delicately, with greater initial focus on its enchanting young leads than their newfound superpowers

    The smartly written dark dramedy, created by Marti Noxon (UnREAL), is a delectable expression of feminist anger, a parable that eviscerates the patriarchy.

    It's big, it's loud, it's unapologetic and it has an ample sense of fun. Just like the balls.

    Dull, dreary and dubiously written, Succession isn't much of a success. ... It's just a group of vacuous rich people shouting at each other, probably not making much of a sound.

    The season is faster-paced and makes better use of the recurring gags from its entire run. But though it's a considerable improvement on Season 4, the fifth season still can't reach the heights of the first three. ... However, the long gap since its original run gives some cast members the opportunity to shine more brightly.

    There's nothing to distinguish Fahrenheit other than the fire imagery. And it's not much of a pleasure to watch the movie burn.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Kelly Lawler
    The pace drags, the dialogue is unnatural and cheesy, the plot is dull and absurd, and most of the characters are still abhorrent. Watching is a chore, but there's no benefit at the end. There are zero reasons to put yourself through it.

    Warm, idyllic and impeccably acted.

    Patrick's life may be in shambles, but the series manages to assemble its disparate pieces into something deeply beautiful. It might just be powerful enough for Cumberbatch's notoriously spirited fan base to forget all about Sherlock and Strange. Maybe.

    Expanding Handmaid's into a multi-season TV series from a single novel by Margaret Atwood was always going to be tricky, and to maintain the core of the series as it moves beyond the book's roadmap, its characters have to suffer. Still, there's only so much trauma audiences can take before it becomes too much. Handmaid's would do well with a lighter touch.
    • 76 Metascore

    Now that the hard work is over, the series is more assured, faster-paced and easier to watch. The characters feel more lived-in, and the dialogue, music and settings can be self-referential. Each scene conveys more meaning.
