    The result is bracing, funny, informative, and occasionally, like Last Week Tonight, a little dry. But it’s homework that you wanna do, even if you never forget that it’s ultimately an assignment. I don’t consider that description a knock on the show.

    Arnold’s can’t-stop-getting-into-political-arguments-with-strangers-on-Facebook energy goes a long way in The Hunt for the Trump Tapes, particularly when he injects some self-aware humor about his status as a has-been. ... When it comes to the purported point of the show, though, Arnold fails to deliver, at least on opening night.

    Yes, it stumbles out of the gate and meanders for a while. But it gradually returns, confidently and furiously, to its greatest strengths: an insider’s indictment of the reality TV-making process and a candidly complicated exploration of female mentorship in a male-run industry.

    You can feel the absence of things left out or glossed over, a tingle that lets you know you’re being manipulated--and not especially well. The new HBO documentary Robin Williams: Come Into My Mind should give viewers a lot of these tingles.

    The phrase that recurred in my mind as I watched C.B. Strike was "not enough": not enough plot, not enough characterization, not enough suspense, not enough of its own DNA. But the pang of "not enough" was most keen when it came to the scenes between Burke and his co-star Holliday Grainger, who faultlessly embodies the earnest, thrill-seeking Robin.

    Dietland is a riveting whirligig of a show: a tale of self-discovery, a manifesto about sizeism, a screed against consumer capitalism and a mystery about a radical feminist terrorist cell that uses vigilante violence to punish rapists, pedophiles and... magazine editors. The anger it evinces against misogyny in the first two episodes is raw, searing and justified, but also a tad unfocused.

    In this deferential retelling, McCain is a lifelong public servant who only erred when he wasn't true to himself, with no ideological bent in his mission to make America exceptional again. It's certainly an inspirational portrait; it's also a blatant exercise in legacy management.

    The new series is simply too old-fashioned to feel relevant. ... Worst of all, the most memorable jokes involve Alex repeatedly falling down.

    If no one in the new Fab Five stands out like original fan faves Carson Kressley or Jai Rodriguez (save grooming expert Jonathan Van Ness for his obnoxious attempts to become a meme), the straight guys are surprisingly memorable.

    It's difficult to tell apart the military personnel in the pilot, and it isn't until the end of the third hour that a larger narrative arc emerges. But the first half of the season (the portion screened for critics) is taut, brisk, moving and gorgeous.

    For the most part, The Long Road Home would rather stick to stock scenes and manipulative sympathy-seeking that add up to "support the troops" messaging than tell messily human stories. Thus the miniseries is the latest pop-culture military production to fail to understand that you can powerfully do both.

    I remain interested in Season 2's idiosyncratic storylines, but I found my attention drifting whenever the series time-traveled to Maria's mildly traumatizing teenage years. There's only so much of someone else's psychoanalytical sessions that I'm able to find interesting.

    Tin Star's attempts to out-bloody its predecessors backfire because the brutality is too cartoonish to take seriously. ... The more blood the series sheds, the less weight the violence seems to carry. ... None of the female characters are given much depth in the first five installments. But their struggles are still preferable to the umpteenth iteration of "Blokes Behaving Badly."

    Sweet, progressive and breathtakingly filthy, the latest collaboration between comedians Nick Kroll and John Mulaney recalls the emotionally grounded squirminess of the boys of Freaks and Geeks and the sex-positive yet debasement-obsessed endocrinological chaos of, well, nothing I've ever seen.

    Neither consistently responsible nor transportingly engrossing, Liar ends up undermining its admirable aims with a series of preposterous twists and characterizations. Flailing crusades like Laura's are seldom so intensely felt--or so groan-inducingly disappointing.
