CSI: Cyber Review - A Drama  So Formulaic It Could Have Been Created By Computer image
Frequently, cop shows like the 'new' CSI: Cyber are simply carbon copies of their originals--new faces in a new setting with the same old everything else. It's so formulaic and uninspired, it might as well have been written and directed by computers.

Dig Review: USA's New Drama Is Complex But Intriguing image
A mysterious stone, a set of connecting tunnels hidden beneath Jerusalem and a cult hidden in broad daylight in the desert are all facets of Dig, USA’s thrilling new action series. The latest show from Heroes’ Tim Kring and Homeland’s Gideon Raff offers a unique setting and intricate storytelling—hallmarks of both men’s work.

Battle Creek Review: Small Town Procedural With Big Laughs And Medium Drama image
Assuming the writing and humor keep pace with what we’ve seen here – and considering pilots are usually the weakest episodes, that very well could be – then Battle Creek will likely (and hopefully) find a long-lasting home on CBS.

The Last Man On Earth Review: A Terrific And Truly Singular Comedy image
Created by Will Forte, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Fox's The Last Man On Earth follows Forte's Phil Miller as he comes to terms with being the titular last man on Earth. And, living up to the title, the new comedy is truly singular, both an incredibly funny and kind of tragic series. A must-see tragicomedy.

Secrets & Lies: ABC's Fun New Drama Is More About Melodrama Than Murder image
Serial crime dramas are becoming more and more popular. This season, in fact, we’ve seen Gracepoint and now Secrets & Lies hit the network schedule. The two shows have plenty in common: dead boys, doggedly determined detectives and some good performances.

The Odd Couple Review: An Amazing Cast Can't Balance The Dated Comedy image
As the history of television has taught us, the first episode of a series can often be the worst in retrospect. And when it comes to CBS' update on The Odd Couple, we can only hope that's the case.

Allegiance Review: Enjoyable But Uneven Spy Drama Makes Russia The Enemy Again image
Like a huge chunk of the programming on network TV, NBC’s Cold War throwback Allegiance stands in the shadow of a previously established series – in this case, FX’s The Americans – and would have been a better fit for audiences had it premiered when it was first conceived. Still, at least it's not Law & Order: Russian Intelligence.

Fresh Off The Boat Review: Asian-American Wonder Years Fits On ABC image
It's hard to believe that ABC kept Fresh Off The Boat until the midseason. Perhaps, it wasn't ready for a fall premiere but the sitcom is easily one of the strongest new network comedies, on ABC, or otherwise and one they should have used as the showcase of their new lineup, not tucked it away in the second wave of premieres.

Black Sails Season 2 Review: Same Old Setting But A Brand New Attitude image
I was worried Season 2 might get off to a slow start, but director Steve Boyum’s premiere is quick out of the gate, thrusting straight into gory action and pirate plotting, as well as introducing a brand new villain. This isn’t the series we left behind last spring.

Backstrom Review: Rainn Wilson's Mean-Spirited Detective Show Has Its Moments, But Still Needs Work image
Rainn Wilson will next make his mark on the acerbic detective dramedy Backstrom, and if Fox gives this show a shot, TV might just have its next great angry cop. Or it might just have its next overtly racist, misogynist, disagreeable asshole.

12 Monkeys Review: An Exciting Sci-Fi Journey, If You Forget The Movie Exists image
12 Monkeys is one that runs dangerously close to the clutches of audiences that hold Terry Gilliam’s 1996 film in the upper echelon of time travel fiction. Yet this small screen version manages to elude strictly comparative criticisms by overhauling many of the film’s details and only holding tight to

Helix Season 2 Review: No Sophomore Slump For This Syfy Drama image
How in the world could Helix executive producer Ronald Moore expect to match the excitement and surprise fans had watching the show’s first season? Well, of course, you take the doctors out of the arctic lab and send them to a creepy as hell island to investigate the outbreak of a mysterious and deadly disease.

Man Seeking Woman Review: Hilarious Sketch Show Disguised As A Sitcom image
Of all of the new series premiering this spring, Man Seeking Woman was high on my most anticipated list and it ended up being love at first sight. Based on Simon Rich's collection of shorts called "The Last Girlfriend on Earth," the FXX comedy starring Jay Baruchel is a much needed fresh take on the stale sitcom format.

Empire Review: Solid Performances And Tunes Balance The Melodrama  image
Empire has a lot of interesting things happening at once, and essentially functions as a primetime soap opera where you can dance your way through the ham-fisted parts. Plus, it reunites Hustle & Flow stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. This one is staying on my playlist.
