  • What this well-written series does not need is a character [Louise Ellison (Jennifer Ferrin), a NYC reporter] whose only job seems to be moving the story along with expository dialogue in the guise of interviews. show more

  • With his one-note revenge plot behind him, Bohannon teams up with Ferguson to work on a new railroading venture, and thankfully their opponents are much more interesting this time around. [16/23 Aug 2013, p.104] show more

  • A prickly alliance founded on mutual respect and constantly threatened by both history and present, unpleasant circumstance, it’s more subtle and moving than your average TV bromance and brings out the best in Common and Mr. Mount. show more
