    Other complications arise as well, and Laurie is superb in this episode, carrying scenes so strongly that for long stretches the viewer will forget the absence of his regular colleagues entirely.

    As in past seasons, a few moments this year may seem made for TV. But this is a show that's scored way more than it has faltered, and the opening episode suggests that streak will continue.

    No one in Westeros is going soft, and there is no shortage of intrigue and sly drama that doubtless foreshadows death, destruction and plentiful violence to come.

    Who Do You Think You Are? still has an uneasy feeling at times, stemming from the fact it only traces the ancestry of celebrities. But if celebrities aren't the only important Americans, that doesn't mean interesting celebrity ancestors aren't important.

    Watching it, to be blunt, is more work. It’s work well rewarded.

    There’s plenty of action to go with snappy grownup dialogue, and Peggy is the kind of dame you won’t be able to resist watching.

    Another Day presents a steady stream of music, traditional and new. By the halfway point, the larger point of the film also kicks in, about how this music keeps getting played because it’s too good to disappear. Happily, Another Day, Another Time is also this day and time.

    Whether the film gets all the nuances right is hard for civilians to say. But round for round, the fight is surprisingly lively.

    Admit it: You've probably never considered the potential impact of sleep deprivation on a serial killer. Well, the creators of Dexter have, and the results make for highly entertaining television.

    Where it diverges [from many trappings of a Western] is the lack of white hats and black hats. The axis of good and bad is constantly shifting, which is part of what makes the story intriguing.

    Arrested Development often feels like an interwoven series of droll sketch comedies, which means viewers can walk in at almost any time and enjoy the gags.

    It remains one of the best.

    A viewer who knew nothing of the earlier incarnations could come to this one and find it immediately engaging, like a good modern police buddy-team drama.

    The comedy is sharp enough, but also gentle. We like the characters. We probably even know them. And it never hurts to put the rom back into com.

    Hot Coffee presents one side of a discussion whose resolution may ultimately be found in the middle. Its greatest value is that this is the side less heard.

    The journey has been fascinating, and unlike in some other cop shows, the police part isn’t toss-away boilerplate. While the cases aren’t as complex as the characters, they’ve got layers.

    Many of the people we meet in the cast are good guys, which gives Dancing a hopeful tone, even when the odds go the other way. We want the folks who deserve it to win, and so does the show.

    Whether you agree or disagree, the film sorts out a complex situation in simple and human terms.

    Body of Proof would be interesting enough if it were just "Quincy" with better legs. Add the other elements and you have something worth checking out.

    A new ABC Family series built around four teenage friends and an ominous hint of supernatural forces that mean no good, makes most popular vampire romances look anemic.

    Ironically, Griffiths at times may be a little too much actress for her role. But it takes a village to make a Camp, and watching this crew work to save Little Otter and find summer love is far from the worst thing you could do at 10 o’clock on Wednesday night

    Boss makes the stories compelling and chilling all over again.

    Like "The Sopranos," Breaking Bad finds nuance and drama within this compromised world, and in the process suggests intriguing and sometimes unsettling parallels to the world in which the rest of us live.

    The best moments in Wednesday night's chat between Elvis Costello and Elton John, which are good enough to recommend the show for fans of both men, serve up small but sparkling musical pleasures.

    With 19 episodes remaining in this season, there's plenty of time for all this drama to intensify and the characters to sort themselves out as good and not-so-good.

    What matters is how well it's done, and Disney does a lot of things right. It's multicultural. Parents are portrayed as people. The intrapersonal dramas are small enough so viewers will understand them.

    Bomb Girls isn't a fancy show. It's just a whole bunch of good stories.

    Like many sitcoms, 2 Broke Girls stretches a little to set up the premise, but once it gets there we're sold, mainly because the two lead actresses are funny and endearing with great chemistry.

    Boardwalk Empire loses sight of neither the large nor the small pictures as it moves into season two.
