TV Review Gang Related
by Jeff Jensen | May 14, 2014

''Pity the thugs of Gang Related — it ain't easy making a dishonest living when the fuzz don't play by the rules.''

TV Review Penny Dreadful
by Jeff Jensen | May 07, 2014

''Grim heroes and deranged monsters. Black magic and bloody horror. Such is the sensationalistic stuff of contemporary pop culture — and Victorian England's penny dreadfuls, lurid adventure serials published on cheap paper.''

TV Review 24: Live Another Day
by Jeff Jensen | Apr 30, 2014

''24: Live Another Day — a reanimation of Kiefer Sutherland's thriller, which clocked out four years ago — shambles back sadder than most. Despite the high-grade action, the premiere is more a showcase for everything that was bad about 24 than a reminder of everything that was good.''

TV Review Orphan Black
by Jeff Jensen | Apr 23, 2014

''For the women of Orphan Black, the world is an open prison, and self-determination is a tenuous contract with the Powers That Be, who view them only as property. Some take this raw deal to survive.''

TV Review Mad Men
by Jeff Jensen | Apr 02, 2014

''Can Don Draper change himself for the better? What does fulfillment look like for the flawed strivers of Mad Men? Do they even believe in progress for themselves? Do you? The premiere episode of the drama's two-part final season asks these questions in various ways, accenting them with thematically rich references and motifs.''

TV Review Veep
by Jeff Jensen | Apr 01, 2014

''Change has come to Veep, HBO's political satire and TV's current gold standard for salty comedy. But should you believe in it? Season 3 finds calamity-prone VP Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) prepping a campaign to replace the scandal-smeared, never-seen POTUS.''

TV Review Growing Up Fisher
by Jeff Jensen | Mar 19, 2014

''In Growing Up Fisher — also based on a true story, also with look-back narration — J.K. Simmons plays Mel Fisher, an accomplished attorney who must become an even more accomplished father after his wife, Joyce (Jenna Elfman), divorces him so she can find an identity outside of motherhood and marriage.''

TV Review Surviving Jack
by Jeff Jensen | Mar 19, 2014

''Like ABC's The Goldbergs, Fox's Surviving Jack is one of those Wonder Years-style comic-of-age nostalgia-coms about a romantic boy hero (Connor Buckley) with a colorful combative family, full of period pop flourish and overexplainy, emotion-coaching narration.''

''Need A Tonight Show host who will tuck you in at night? Well, then, Jimmy Fallon is the wrong man for the job. The late-night live wire is not Ambien — he's Pop Rocks.''
