    Starz's new series Outlander isn't merely a feminist Game of Thrones. In fact, it's refreshingly hard to pin down, a vibrant concoction of rollicking adventure, passionate romance and strikingly beautiful history lesson. Throw in a bit of sci-fi and the show becomes its own captivating genre.

    TNT's Legends is a leaden cable drama that is every bit as clumsy as it is familiar. Relentlessly formulaic, Legends is cookie-cutter stuff manufactured from stale dough.

    Visually stunning, at first WGN America's Manhattan seems a dreamy trip to the past with a range of engaging characters and a Big Band soundtrack. Below the surface, it is a nightmarish accounting of the moral dilemmas of the scientists at the time, the top-secret Manhattan Project, moving us to ask the same profound questions. It's a well-crafted, historically based drama that conveys the anxieties of the U.S. during World War II, the bias against women and minorities in general and female scientists in particular, the super secrecy of the project and the runaway egos at war in an unnatural little village, "Harvard with sand" — in the New Mexico desert. The first two episodes left me craving more.

    The title character of USA’s new dramedy Rush — a disgraced L.A. doctor who makes cash-only house calls for clients who have something to hide — both behaves and allows other people to behave in reprehensible ways, but we’re supposed to think of him as a lovable scamp. Since the creators clearly haven’t thought through the show’s ethics, viewers who just want to have a good time shouldn’t either. The attractive cast and glossy cinematography provide enough distraction.

    While FX's The Strain is pretty much a cauldron churning with familiar ingredients, the dark brew bubbling inside is served up with a great deal of panache. No there's nothing terribly profound or original here, but The Strain gets off to a robust start and moves at a lighting pace. It keeps thundering along, packed with fun performances and nifty visual treats (and tricks, for that matter).
