    It's a slow road to apocalypse in the absorbing, if derivative, opening chapters of this Stephen King wannabe based on the epic horror trilogy by Justin Cronin. [21 Jan - 3 Feb 2019, p.13]

    Luxurious and intelligent escapism though hobbled by Palmer's less-than-bewitching blandness. Goode more than compensates with his usual grace while hinting at his inner beast. He's the ghoul to watch. [21 Jan - 3 Feb 2019, p.13]

    The writing can lay the nihilism on a bit thick. ... And yet there's no denying the spellblindingly ominous mood cast over six episodes. [21 Jan - 3 Feb 2019, p.12]

    With everyone playing to the camera, from actors who break the fourth wall to their real-life counterparts who sit for interviews, the result is system overload. Boom is entertaining yet can be exhausting as it is illuminating. [7-20 Jan 2019, p.11]

    This grown-up Roswell has its moments but mostly reminds us how hard it is to recapture the magic of the original. [7-20 Jan 2019, p.11]

    There's little surprise or suspense in these by-the-book anecdotes of weird phenomena in the skies and sinister cover-ups on the ground. [7-20 Jan 2019, p.11]

    [Nic Pizzolatto] puts story and character first in this long-awaited comeback season. ... Even when the script takes heady philosophical detours into poetry and Einstein, it never loses sight of the toll of the investigation takes on those charged with solving the case. [7-20 Jan 2019, p.10]

    Olivia Cooke vibrantly inhabits what little soul the ruthlessly opportunistic Becky Sharp possesses in this irreverent seven-part adaptation of the Thackeray classic. [10 - 23 Dec 2018, p.9]

    A grisly hybrid of science fiction and horror, capable of claustrophobic chills but more often merely evoking chaotic confusion. [26 Nov - 9 Dec 2018, p.9]

    Lorre achieves a deeply personal best in this lovingly crafted, wise and wisecrackingly bittersweet bromance between a legendary acting coach (Michael Douglas) and his powerful Hollywood agent (Alan Arkin). [12-25 Nov 2018, p.10]

    Give the show credit for not dragging its heels. ... Watching Jon's circle of survivors--men and women, friends and spouses--as they pick up the pieces should make for some memorable TV. [15-28 Oct 2018, p.9]

    The story takes wild, violent leaps amid myriad conspiracies, leading to a crazy, nail-biting climax that is both preposterous and wholly satisfying. Some binges feel like a slog. Bodyguard is more of a race, well worth the run. [15-28 Oct 2018, p.9]

    A stylish if juvenile supernatural thriller. I was hoping for more whimsy and wonder--and frankly chills--amid the hocus-pocus, not to mention a bit less mythological mumbo-jumbo. But by the midpoint of the 10-epsiode season, the show finds its stride. [15-28 Oct 2018, p.9]

    An opulent enterprise often eliciting little more than a head-scratching "Is that all there is" after these over-long vignettes. The tone shifts gears from a trite tale of martial stagnation and temptation from the John Cheever playbook to a more successful attempt to evoke The Twilight Zone's Rod Sterling in a surreal and disorienting "House of Special Purpose." [15-28 Oct 2018, p.8]

    This is comic fantasy operating on the highest level, still capable of ending each episode with a jaw-roping twist that makes you wish you should skip right to the next. [1-14 Oct 2018, p.11]

    The Miniaturist evokes the Dutch Masters with its moody and dark-hued cinematography. Unfortunately, the story is a bit murky too. [17-30 Sep 2018, p.25]
