    The zeal and dedication of researchers is inspiring, and so are the patients and caregivers who struggle with the disease everyday, but over all, The Alzheimer’s Project celebrates hope at the expense of caution.

    The series takes off when secondary characters fill in the blank spots.

    Mostly the series functions as an entertaining if pale sequel to its HBO prototype.

    “Flight of the Conchords” is funny in such an understated way that it is almost dangerous to make too much of it.

    While the series is not exactly imaginative or subtle (stretch limos, Chivas Regal, call girls), it’s surprisingly enjoyable.

    Over all, Necessary Roughness is enjoyable, a lighthearted look at football that takes a therapist in suburban Long Island seriously.

    For all its flights of fancy the Encore mini-series is not entirely silly or even half bad. Shot mostly in Nova Scotia, it's an ambitious, beautifully made adventure tale that seeks to be respectful of the book while still making the characters and story accessible to modern viewers.

    An unsparing, and at times hyperbolic, portrait of bureaucratic turf wars, buck passing and complacency.

    Season 2 is in many ways as captivating and addictive as the first, but this time around, the series comes off as a shameless throwback to itself.
