    Between [Peter Griffin's] hiring of a "penis butler," his purchase of a solid-gold tuxedo at the "nonsense store," and his riff on the "dreadfulness" of True Blood, it's easy to forgive the plot for being as old as the hills.

    Congrats to Bob's Burgers star H. Jon Benjamin, who is now voicing the lead on two of TV's funniest shows. [28 Jan 2011, p.68]

    This reality show tracks, with admirable and hilarious straight-facedness, the follicularly oriented infighting that plagues Beard Team USA (a name I will never tire of writing), as well as their attempt to dethrone the presumably more regimented Germans as planet Earth's top whisker warriors.

    The stunningly shot result will make you wonder at the cruel beauty of nature. [16 Mar 2012, p.67]

    It is possible to argue that, although Louis C.K. has created a work of genius with the FX show Louie, what he's really good at is stand-up. Oh My God offers further evidence for the thesis.

    This excellent, Robert Redford-narrated look at both the Watergate scandal and the film it inspired backs up the comic's [Louis C.K.'s] assertion about politics never being more insane.

    The result is a compelling portrait of a man who was, in every sense, incendiary.

    While Seduced and Abandoned may be hard to categorize, it is easy to sum up: amazing.

    This sitcom is simply infectious. [4 Jul 2014, p.60]

    The fact that Push Girls borrows heavily from the Real Housewives format is initially worrying, given the sensitive subject matter, but ultimately seems like a savvy, on-the-side-of-the-angels move.

    The result is satisfyingly twist-filled and chilling in every sense.

    [Hotel Hell] shows the Brit on his best behavior. By which we mean his worst.
    • 69 Metascore

    There are enough surreal, self-referential, and/or testicle-related jokes to have me signing up for at least a few more weeks of tutelage. [8 Feb 2013, p.69]

    The most believable character--and the real reason to check in to Bates Motel--is undoubtedly Farmiga's Norma.

    The film costars an on-form Helen Mirren as Linda Kenney Baden, one of Spector's real-life defense attorneys.... Pacino too is excellent. [22 Mar 2013, p.58]

    [A] desperately sad yet compelling doc digs deep into the events that led to and followed the tragedy. [26 Jul 2013, p.62]

    While not all of the ensuing skits work as well, plenty of gags land, ahem, hard. [18/25 Apr 2014, p.102]

    While the show's attempt to please different generations is sometimes more jarring than jocular, this episode does feature the best non sequitur gag you're ever likely to hear about the Parliament song "Aqua Boogie."

    It boasts at least a whiff of the grittiness to be found in creator/writer Richard Price's 1992 novel about drug dealer, Clockers. [13 Apr 2012, p.79]

    By the end of this first episode, The L.A. Complex has done enough to deserve a callback. [20/27 Apr 2012, p.106]

    The pace is nicely brisk and both leads are amiable presences, but the writers could have worked a little harder on the prof's quirks. [13 Jul 2012, p.67]

    Alas, there are enough reminders of real life--including an early suicide--to dampen the fun of this guilty pleasure.

    Graceland is Not The Wire. But it won't have you shooting up your television set, either. [31 May/7 Jun 2013, p.131]

    If less spookily atmospheric than SundanceTV's not-dissimilar The Returned, Resurrection handsomely frames its "What the hell?" premise. [7 Mar 2014, p.62]

    Without the benefit of Bill Cosby's timing and avuncularity, the spouseribbing gags featured in the comedy legend's first televised concert in 30 years would come across as simply mean-spirited.

    While both these specials boast a fair number of yuks, we won’t repeat any lines.... We don’t have a durable enough dash key on our computer to start regurgitating Silverman's set.

    On this sporadically hilarious show, Andy Daly carries over the uptight persona he used to great effect on Eastbound & Down to the role of TV presenter Forrest MacNeil, who every week reviews and grades different experiences. [21 Mar 2014, p.58]

    Mosley, Kevin Daniels, and Kevin Bigley play Chicago EMTs in this promising show, which is more comedically broad than Leary's Rescue Me and much raunchier than your average USA series. [7 Mar 2014, p.61]
