    This sly Britcom is like a C-SPAN spin-off of... The Office. [12 May 2006, p.75]

    It's probably too much to ask costars Matthew Modine and Broadway royalty Audra McDonald to inject some depth, but we're pleading anyway. [31 Mar 2006, p.57]

    Jean appears to have liked humiliation... Such masochism is hard to watch, even with a stellar cast. [24 Feb 2006, p.58]

    Mirren's Elzabeth is emotional... But with that comes soemthing as rare on TV as it is rewarding--a love affair involving people over the age of 50. [21 Apr 2006, p.67]

    Tim Gunn still motherhens the designers, the dramatic arcs feel familiar (one designer is a recovering addict, another gave up a career as a surgeon), and--wonders to behold--there's even a branch of the fabric store Mood in Runway's new Los Angeles home.

    You know this Dr. Who spin-off aims to please when the return of Capt. Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) isn't even the big news.... With [Capt.] John [James Marsters] adding such a fun, unhinged element, it's a shame these two crazy kids broke up in the first place.

    Book club? Please. These Scottsdale, Ariz., women don't read. They whine, they shop, and they obsess over the way they look. [16 Jun 2006, p.71]

    Bernie Mac ... is as violent, foulmouthed, mildly homophobic, clueless, and manipulative as ever.

    The humor is wilder, the penury sadder, and Sophie Okonedo a winsome Nancy. The only bad twist is the overwrought score.

    [O'Toole's] Casanova may have lust in his heart, but it's his love for Henriette... that guides his life and makes the tale worth the telling. [6 Oct 2006, p.64]

    The resolution with the ghost is plenty satisfying, but ultimately Medium's strength is that it's not about the ghosts.

    Oka is pure delight as a wage slave who's broken the space-time continuum, and... Grunberg shines as a telepathic cop. [29 Sep 2006, p.71]

    There's nothing inherently bad about contrived plots and interchangeable kissing partners ... The problem is 'One Tree Hill' doesn't always find the line between silly fun and total inanity.
