    The new show dovetails nicely with its lead-in to present a solid hour of skewered news and punctured pomposity.

    [An] unflinching and engaging look at the lives of a disparate group of women in their 20s and 30s whose share a love for this rough-and-tumble sport.

    Sound more than a little like FX's "Rescue Me"? Absolutely.

    British reviewers pegged Hotel Babylon correctly when they called it flashy, trashy, cheeky, frothy and "like a perfectly executed souffle."

    Holds its own against the 1956 classic.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Barry Garron
    The show has a complex rhythm involving characters, satire and sight gags. You can watch "Barker" again and find things you missed the first time.

    Working together, Goldblum and Craven create some of the most honest scenes in the genre.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Barry Garron
    Arguably the best comedy this fall.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Barry Garron
    A surprisingly refreshing romantic dramedy full of appealing characters.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Barry Garron
    If the stories aren't entirely convincing, the actors are.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Barry Garron
    This is a warmhearted dramedy, which gushes charm and family appeal.

    Hall... is brilliant at conveying the subtle complexity of Dexter.

    If there is a chink to this series' armor, it is in the casting of Armstrong in the title role.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Barry Garron
    The show succeeds on a number of levels and builds on a well-crafted premise pilot.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Barry Garron
    It's a Western miniseries with impeccable pedigree, memorable characters, breathtaking cinematography and a story that seems almost as if it had been put together by a committee.
    • 64 Metascore

    All series need time to discover their strengths and weaknesses, and this is no exception. However, this show starts with a foundation of solid character comedy, which bodes well for the future.

    Season 2 features an expanded role--probably too greatly expanded--for Dale (Todd Stashwick), the dull-witted, violent villain and nemesis from Traveller days. Even so, Izzard and Driver remain a joy to watch in this odd but fascinating series that is derivative of nothing on TV.

    Julianna Margulies--also listed as a producer--is convincing as a lawyer whose only true solace is her work. Still, she lives under a black cloud that threatens to burst at any moment and overwhelm the show.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Barry Garron
    The pilot is full of dark, dangerous and sexy moments.
    • 69 Metascore

    A little heavy on exposition.... "Burn" is at its best when Westen is outwitting and outracing bad guys.
    • 72 Metascore

    Even with its eye-rolling plot and its McMusic, High School Musical 2, like the original, does well by doing good.

    Greek is much more than artful manipulation of marketing strategy. The premiere has several surprises even as it dares you to pigeonhole any of these characters. The talented young ensemble cast works hard to sell the stories and mostly succeeds.

    Bee greets viewers with a set of splashy colors, a house band, house singers and house dancers. It's all very hokey, but there's also something lively and real about it.

    The producers do a nice job of developing characters and delineating the conflict. It's so good that, with only a few tweaks here and a little better dialogue there, it could rival "The Office" as a faux documentary.

    It's a showcase for Ullman's remarkable skill, but it is done too fast for the comedy to percolate. We barely have time to figure out who the character is before there's another one. And another. Things are better in succeeding episodes.

    Despite its 1980s ambiance, you can't simply dismiss the show. It has some genuinely funny lines, though it's not clear who to thank for that.

    It's not that Americans can't master the outlandish sketch comedy exemplified by Little Britain USA. It's just that, from Monty Python to Borat to Eddie Izzard, the British invariably do it so much better.

    NCIS: L.A., like its parent, relies on a sturdy, mostly youthful cast, sporadic action, and sprightly dialogue.

    Although this Valley is too deep at times, there are enough elements to provide a fun, action-packed experience.
    • 51 Metascore

    This might make a better premise for a movie than a series, but Fox is giving it a shot amid its Sunday animated comedies. It could pay off thanks to above-average writing, a winning performance by Tyler Labine and an understanding by the producers that this series must walk a tightrope to avoid becoming too sweet or cynical.
