    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]

    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]

    This theoretically grim material [addiction], but the real-life Maron transmutes it into gold. [6 May 2016, p.51]

    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.

    There are new mysteries aplenty, albeit ones with a more beguiling, Ray Bradbury-esque tinge than before.... This premiere does enough to make us want to find out. [2 Oct 2015, p.69]

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

    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.

    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."

    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.

    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]

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

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

    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.

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

    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]

    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]

    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.

    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.
