    [Veronica is] at the top of her game in a clever mystery that some fans may feel take one twist too many. Still, let's hope we haven't seen the last of this fabulous character. [22 Jul - 4 Aug 2019, p.6]

    While the mayhem over eight episodes can grow repetitive and tiresome--I lost count of how many ties bodies were hurled against and sometimes through walls--there's a light touch even in the darker moments. [8-21 Jul 2019, p.14]

    Jerks have all the fun--or at least that's how it seems in a '90s-set drama that, despite thick Boston accents and local color, is as generic as its title and twice as cliched. [24 Jun - 7 Jul 2019, p.11]

    Two of the three stories making up Black Mirror's fifth season offers a more hopeful vision. Things get kinker and funkier in the "Striking Vipers" episodes... In the most purely enjoyable hour, "Rachel, Jack And Ashley Too," Miley Cyrus is a delight. [10 - 23 Jun 2019, p.9]
