    It’s an acquired taste worth acquiring--or at least sampling. Because you just won’t know until you’ve tried.

    It’s bright, sharp, without a laugh track and with a very well assembled ensemble cast headed by Ari Graynor in the Diaz role of a gold-digging, dumped divorcee looking to land another big fish.

    The first four episodes of Season 4 are a little weak downstairs while still remaining at or near the top of the TV comedy class.

    Some of its mumbo jumbo may hurt your head, but the last words of Episode 2 are precisely on point. They whet the appetite for more, more.

    Murder in the First looks to have sturdy underpinnings. Bochco at this point has been around too long to learn entirely new tricks. Still, this is easily his best new series since NYPD Blue tried to break molds more than two decades ago.

    It packs a lot of intriguing plot threads into its first hour while also brimming with money-on-the-screen production values.

    Welcome to Sweden is more charming and amusing than laugh-out-loud funny. But its charms are considerable and the overall premise is bracingly unique.
