"This Is Us" recap: The Pearsons battle chicken pox, racism and a big new twist

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 02:46:00 CDT

"Still There" was unfortunately the kind of episode that made me wary of watching "This Is Us" in the first place. But even when "This Is Us" is being very "This Is Us"-like, it can still result in a pretty good hour of TV.

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 12:36:00 CDT

The results of "Landline," the second pairing of writer-director Gillian Robespierre and Jenny Slate, are almost as messy as the discombobulated clan in the middle of it all - but thankfully just as funny, honest and endearing too.

Wed, 4 Oct 2017 02:36:00 CDT

Kid performances keep the slightly scary "It" adaptation afloat

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 19:06:00 CDT

It takes a lot of nerve to adapt Stephen King's monolithic "It" for the big screen. Unfortunately, save for coulrophobics and globophobes, the final product takes far less nerve to watch as a potent horror movie.
