    A terrific two-parter that features aliens, Richard Nixon, and crackling dialogue. [22/29 Apr 2011, p.92]

    Horgan and Delaney, who wrote the show together, play their characters off each other to perfection. The result may well turn out to be the worst--by which we mean the best--new comedy of the year. [19 Jun 2015, p.56]

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    As usual, the laughs come from the thought that this doc Brown-homaging character may also have a little Hannibal Lecter in him as he sociopathically berates his grandkids Morty and Summer. [24 Jul 2015, p.55]

    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.

    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]

    Holmes is terrific as the show's emotional core, a walking wound upon whom the universe dumps a daily portion of salt. Crashing is happy to wear its heart on its sleeve--or on the big goofy face of its leading men. [17 Feb 2017, p.54]

    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.

    If Stranger Things is an immediately yummy, nostalgia-inducing bowl of Count Chocula then The OA is a meal both fresher and more exotic, while still succeeding as a televisual page-turner.

    AHS may no longer have the element of surprise on its side, but it remains, to quote the lyrics of a certain David Bowie tune performed by Lange, the freakiest show. One of us? Count me in.

    If the result is less rock & roll, both literally and metaphorically, than the director's films about the Band and Bob Dylan, it features an impressive list of interviewees, including Joan Didion and Michael Chabon.

    Compelling documentary.... Director Irene Taylor Brodsky utilizes police interrogation footage and interviews with the pair's families to craft not a tale about imaginary monsters, but about the far more terrifying subject of real-life mental-health issues. [27 Jan 2017, p.54]

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

    This fascinating series that tracks a bunch of small-town Louisiana cage battlers and their lives of not-so-quiet desperation. Even the overly strenuous attempts to amp up drama are revelatory.
