Apple TV+ hits the ground running with a timely, intelligent #MeToo drama that's refreshingly unpredictable, provides food for thought and, crucially, maintains a sense of humour throughout.

It's not often you can say a three-hour awards show didn't drag on, boring the viewing audience into a stupor of annoyance.
September 10, 2019
In the midst of an impossible era, Colbert had an impossible job tonight: Entertain people who now very often feel profoundly guilty for wanting to be entertained at all. As a viewing experience... he did a fantastic job.

Spicey took to the Emmys stage! And it was weird and kinda awesome... I've gotta say, I prefer seeing him in this capacity than in his previous line of work.
September 10, 2019
The Emmy powers-that-be knew exactly what they were doing when they chose Stephen Colbert to host this year... Hope to see you again next year, Stephen.
September 10, 2019
Almost everything about the Emmys tribute to the celebs who've recently passed away was extremely classy and well done... It was simple and poignant, which is the best you can hope for.
September 10, 2019
For once, much of the banter between presenters was actually witty and not cringe-worthy.
September 10, 2019
Colbert kept the ceremony from indulging too deeply in its own self-satisfaction.
September 10, 2019
Once the awards show got going -- once Colbert and the hammy Billy Crystalite parodies disappeared -- it was a delight! There were soft sweeps in each category, lending the night a sense of triple momentum.
September 10, 2019
And it was quite a night for the satire-embracing and politically motivated Late Show host, who made an indelible mark on the yearly telecast. Your mileage may vary, but we were quite impressed with him, as well as all of the winners.
September 10, 2019
With a rare finger on the cultural pulse, the Emmys this year gave audiences exactly what they wanted... Smart Trump roasting, pleas for action and change, a celebration of inclusion, and, most of all, a warm, joyous diversion from the chaos in the world.
September 10, 2019
Colbert fulfilled expectations beautifully, during his brisk, sharp opening monologue and his shorter gags later in the show.
September 10, 2019
Between Handmaid's Tale and Big Little Lies, some of the most joyful moments of the show were seeing women-centric shows win big. What a change!
September 10, 2019
The quality of the winners, so many for the first time, kept the show moving along nicely, as did Colbert's extremely capable hosting.
September 10, 2019
Look at the winners list: There's simply not much there to grouse about. And host Stephen Colbert skillfully brought viewers to a place that was witty and sleek; occasionally slow but more often sincere.
September 10, 2019
Just as TV is finding new energy outside conventional forms, winners outside the Best Drama and Comedy fields gave the show the charge its host couldn't find.
September 10, 2019
[Colbert] knows how to be silly and still stay smart... His hosting performance, assisted by Trump as an unseen presence, clearly made him a winner.
September 10, 2019
Though the tone was predictable, the show itself moved along at a lively pace.
September 10, 2019
It was, all around, a really great performance for an Emmy host, and [Colbert] managed to keep from completely disappearing from the show when things started to run behind, which is tough to do.
September 10, 2019
It was the first Emmy night in a long time (maybe ever) in which everything that was nominated seemed more than deserving. Some losses were difficult to process, but the fact remains, we've probably never had it so good.
