    Forget the sags and disappointments of last year. For season three, creator and producer David Chase gets it right again. [3 Mar 2001]

    A winner. [20 Sep 1991]

    • 100 Ann Hodges
    The cast here is a standout, down to the smallest parts. ... And this production is super-slick, from camera work to moody musical score. The script is sharply cutting edge. The step is relentlessly slow, with violence as the pace-breaker. [27 Oct 1996]

    The humor is meaner and the laughs less free and easy. [22 Jun 1994]
    • Houston Chronicle
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Ann Hodges
    Subtle, sophisticated, witty, cutting and right on target. [14 Aug 1992]

    JAG's a long, long way from just another courtroom scene. [23 Sep 1995]

    With a little TLC, the clone could turn out to be better than the original. [23 Sep 2002]

    • 70 Metascore

    The best comedy ensemble to come along in a while. [21 Mar 1995]

    Fast and funny. [25 Mar 1999]

    Just cool the frantic efforts to be funny. Go for real family fun instead. [13 Sep 1996]

    A surprisingly sweet, frequently funny show. [28 Jan 1997]

    The Family Guy is worse than dumb; it's not funny. [30 Jan 1999]
    • Houston Chronicle
    • 77 Metascore
    • 100 Ann Hodges
    This season's best series. ... It's extremely well-written, and the operating scenes are so realistic that you may cover your eyes. It's life-and-death drama but leavened with a little dark humor. And it works. [17 Sep 1994]

    May leave you exhausted. [17 Sep 1994]

    I think Curb Your Enthusiasm is funnier, smarter and classier than Seinfeld. [13 Sep 2002]
    • Houston Chronicle
    • 75 Metascore
    • 91 Ann Hodges
    A show for grown-ups, with a witty script, a charismatic cast and the good sense to leave the messages on the cutting-room floor. [21 Sep 1998]
    • Houston Chronicle
    • 64 Metascore
    • 83 Ann Hodges
    There are more than a few good laughs in tonight's episode, and next week's is even better. [17 Sep 1991]

    • 51 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hodges
    Bathroom is an apt description of the humor level and the language. [21 Sept 1998, p.1]

    That stupid daddy thing has got to go before it ruins a good college try. [25 Sept 2001, p.6]

    Big Brother is that deadliest of TV sins: It's a Grade D bore. [8 Jul 2000]
    • Houston Chronicle
    • 54 Metascore

    Popular is the show to separate the teens from the grown-ups. [29 Sept 1999, p.H-1]

    From the creator of "L.A.Law," Picket Fences has all the oddball characters and eccentric behavior that made "L.A. Law" the hit it has been. But in this setting, they ring a false note that's more grating than ingratiating. [18 Sept 1992, p.1]

    • 88 Metascore
    • 83 Ann Hodges
    If the next 23 hours are half as spellbinding as tonight's - and, of course, providing that the TV audience is ready to find a terrorist attack entertaining - 24 could still be the hit of the season. [6 Nov 2001]

    It's fantasy, but it's fun. [6 Oct 1998, p.1]

    I'm betting on Bette to get better as everybody settles down and lets the show settle in. [11 Oct 2000, p.1]

    Despite its "dj vu" premise, That's Life goes into this TV life with a fair number of promising moments. What's not to like, if the scripts can manage to come up to this solid cast, and Kent's considerable charisma? [29 Sept 2000, p.1]
    • Houston Chronicle
    • 69 Metascore
    • 91 Ann Hodges
    But before your eyes glaze over, the good news is, it still works. And this slick, big-budgeted, action-packed pilot gives it the high-profile send-off to bring even skeptics around. [6 Oct 2000, p.1]
    • Houston Chronicle

    Once is quite enough to send C.S.I. back to the lab. [6 Oct 2000, p.10]

    Don't waste time trying to follow it. This convoluted camcorder e-mess is already freaked out to reboot mode behind the scenes, and the grade drops accordingly. [6 Oct 2000, p.10]
    • Houston Chronicle
    • 55 Metascore
    • 83 Ann Hodges
    It's mildly amusing for openers, but if chasing women becomes the weekly theme, Madigan Men could become a bore. [6 Oct 2000, p.10]
