"That kind of awareness–knowing how women are judged, rejecting it, enabling it, toying with it–is the nugget of nuclear fuel that powers Schumer’s feminist sketch machine."
Schumer's sketch show is a war comedy, and she's the battlefield.

"Vengeance is sweet. But is it just? Is it right? Is it smart?"
Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but in Westeros it is a multicourse banquet.

"Mad Men gets something essential about being human: we experience time both as an linear one-way trip forward and as a nonlinear four-dimensional space, where it’s always today and 20 years ago and every year you’ve ever lived through."
The modern classic's final season premiere takes place in the past, the present and the future. Just like always.

"Comedy Central didn’t end up signing John Oliver, but you have to wonder if there’s been an Oliver Effect from Last Week Tonight, showing the appeal and potential of taking a more global perspective on what is, after all, a very large news world."
The show hires from inside--but just barely--signaling a new, international outlook on the fake news.

"The Lyon family business is about taking bad memories and raw emotions and turning them into art. That’s the story of the blues, that’s the story of hip-hop. Now it’s the story of Empire."
A blood-spilling, plot-twisting, weave-pulling finale proves that this phenomenon has no intention of slowing down.

"Think of one trust as the trust you have that when you turn on a tap, clean drinking water will come out. Think of the other as the trust you have in a favorite bartender who mixes you a drink and hears out your problems."
What's more, to different audiences, "trust" may not even mean the same thing.

"Everything you loved once is coming back! Did you have a beloved dog who died when you were a kid? Expect to hear a scratching noise at your back door soon."
Remaking something people liked is not the way to make something people will love.

"However real Diana ultimately is, she’s a fitting last partner to Don/Dick, a man for whom nostalgia is the pain from an old womb."
With Mad Men's mysterious Diana, Don seems to be going back to the beginning. The very beginning.

Sutton Foster passes for 26 in a TV Land sitcom that doesn't feel like a rerun.

"To replace the dryly funny Craig Ferguson, CBS also hired a performer: a game, eager multihyphenate who can act, sing and do physical comedy. And Corden’s first hour, if not a copy of Fallon’s show, clearly looks to use his talents in the way that Fallon’s Tonight used his."
The English comic actor introduced himself as his own man, but his show is also a sign of how late night has been Fallonized.

"I can, beyond reasonable doubt, pronounce The Jinx‘s finale guilty of killing me with tension and of aggravated sticking of the landing."
However it plays in court, the gobsmacking HBO true-crime finale was a once-in-a-lifetime stunner.

"[Ellie Kemper is] a terrific physical comic, able to combine naivete with a sense of cunning, and she’s contagiously joyous–it’s as if Lucille Ball had a baby with a rainbow."
NBC's loss is Netflix's gain, as Ellie Kemper delights in Tina Fey's oddball cult-survivor comedy.
