A critic who's never watched "Roseanne" attempts to make sense of a reboot that can't quite shake the ghost of its namesake.
There are a lot of negatives in "Gilmore Girls" for me, but the overall strength of the relationships displayed won me over

Lifetime stepped up its game a few weeks ago when they presented the mini-series "War & Peace." It was a beautifully crafted and acted event. Now Lifetime is bringing us "And Then There Were None" based on Agatha Christie's classic novel.
There is a real event on the television horizon. It is the production of War & Peace that will air simultaneously on Lifetime, A&E and History. It takes a special movie to air on that many channels and War & Peace fills that bill.
The movie succeeds thanks to Parton's honest and touching story concerning her life as a child living in the Great Smoky Mountains.
Just In Time For Christmas is a frothy, light romantic comedy that hits all the right notes as far as the requirements for a Hallmark Channel movie go.
It is not easy to find a highly watchable series among the crop of newbies being offered on TV this season, but I have found one standout. It is CBS' Code Black, and it is ER on steroids.
Under the Dome is great lightweight summer entertainment. For sure the CBS series, based on the novel by Stephen King, isn't meant to be taken seriously. That doesn't mean it is in the "Sharknado" category, but it also does mean this isn't The Good Wife.
If you have been a constant fan of this series, you are going to love these final episodes. When it is over, there are still questions to be answered, but you will have a sense of satisfaction (depending on your viewpoint) as to where it leaves the story.
What also draws me in is the acting. Phillippe has never been this good. He gives the various shades to Ben's personality which make you trust him one moment and doubt him the next. This role could take him to the next level of his career and he seems to know it.
It is time to celebrate as the real "Hallmark Hall of Fame" is back. After too many years of silly comedies and soapy romances this special event of television has returned to the hallmark of what it once represented -- good, enjoyable family entertainment.
The writing on this show is brisk and subtle. Plus there are some hilarious actions and reactions from the cast. They enhance the scripts which are already good to begin with. Each episode has at least a couple of laugh out loud moments.
"Ascension" is a new mini-series on the Syfy Channel that shows a lot of promise. It is a story about a manned spaceship on a one hundred year journey to a new planet, that is also a murder mystery. Both facets of the show are interesting and so you get the best of both worlds.
