The X-Files' Gillian Anderson is in another creepy drama. But instead of chasing aliens on Fox, she's hunting a sexually sadistic serial killer in a broodingly dark Irish series.

Parks and Recreation

Parks and Recreation

UPDATED REVIEW: Amy Poehler is pretty much done paving the streets of Pawnee, Ind., with her good intentions and political positivity. Too bad we can't give her NBC sitcom the same pronouncement.

Rating: TV-PG

Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey

1/18/2015

UPDATED REVIEW: Love. Money. Sex. Intrigue. The latest soapy teen drama on CW? Hardly. Try a high-class look into aristocratic England near the beginning of the 20th century. On PBS.

Rating: TV-PG

The Adventures of Puss in Boots

The Adventures of Puss in Boots

1/16/2015

It doesn't take much time for the lovely Dulcinea to realize that Puss in Boots has his share of flaws. But she insists that our titular tabby has a good heart. And the same could be said for his new Netflix show.

Empire

Empire
