    CBS’s Zoo will fit nicely in the pantheon of TV’s most ridiculous TV series’ premises (think: Manimal, My Mother the Car, Homeboys From Outer Space, The Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer). Zoo may not be as awful as most of these programs, but it’s also not good. Viewers may cheer on the animals once they see the silliness humans have wrought by making the inane Zoo.

    USA's Mr. Robot is a worldview-challenging psychological thriller that’s steeped in new-century punk politics, nervy with digital-age anxiety, and made with slick, smart panache. Rami Malek is riveting as lead character Elliot. He finds the vulnerable humanity in his prickly character without sentimentalizing him. Mr. Robot echoes Fight Club in its interest in how we live within ourselves—and live with ourselves—as people of conscience, and negotiate our relationship to society’s flawed, corrupt operating systems.

    In The Right Stuff, Tom Wolfe writes that the first astronauts’ wives were presented as “seven flawless cameo-faced dolls sitting in the family room with their pageboy bobs in place, ready to offer any and all aid to the brave lads.” That was the image that NASA created, and that’s what ABC's The Astronaut Wives Club seeks to debunk. This show applies the Mad Men formula to the women who stood behind the heroes of the conquest of space. It’s an amused but gauzy look back at a prefeminist era when women deferred to their husbands, wore gloves to church and took one another potluck dishes like Tater Tot Surprise and Jell-O salad.

    Complications shows USA is figuring out how to go dark. After years of successful, high-quality dramas with a light, breezy touch, the network has decided to cast its lot with the more somber and complex dramas popularized by rivals like AMC. Complications plunges deep into a shadowy world where laughs are as scarce as cuddly gangbangers. It's a complex story sorted out cleanly, with flawed and compelling characters.

    Proof explores the mother of all mysteries — what happens after we die? — in the most uninspired and banal of ways. Filled with cliches, the TNT series benefits from the casting of Jennifer Beals in the central role, but handcuffs her with a drab character and dead-end (pardon the pun) concept, which, as executed, demonstrates what would happen if a medical procedural and The X-Files had a baby. In theory, there’s an interesting and provocative show here; it’s just not the one that’s been made.
