    The first film is well constructed to be unnerving; the second offers the sight of "Grey's" Dr. Yang toting a revolver. Both make for creepy-rich summer viewing.

    Push Girls is a hybrid nonfiction series and, ultimately, an inspiring work.

    A medically sound, educational effort.

    This season's three installments--"Scandal in Bohemia" is followed by a scary "The Hounds of Baskerville" and "The Reichenbach Fall" in which nemesis Moriarty (Andrew Scott) returns--make a pleasingly diverse set.

    With Louis-Dreyfus inhabiting the central role, the writing shines.

    Dunham succeeds in making viewers uncomfortable while proferring a new (sharp, slightly bitter) flavor of introspective female comedy.

    Creator-executive producer Mitch Glazer draws a loving and critical portrait of the awesome and awful fantasyland that actually existed in that time and place.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 20 Joanne Ostrow
    Insulting, derivative and neither credible nor fanciful.

    While the characters are slight and the dialog is silly, there's a story there somewhere.
    • 68 Metascore

    This isn't a procedural with a neat answer at the end of each episode. But it is involving.
    • 89 Metascore

    Suffice it to say creator Matthew Weiner unspools enough story to keep fans hooked, immediately satisfying some curiosities and creating others.

    Yes, they [Amanda Peet and David Walton] throw sparks, but it's more than that. The quick reparte and the presence of great secondary players is also a crucial part of the appeal.

    This is high-definition bliss.

    While Moore's performance is riveting, the most insightful aspects of the tale are the insider reactions.

    Truthfully, a little bit of this fun farce may go a long way.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Joanne Ostrow
    It is exploring new turf in terms of a relationship drama with a bold narrative premise, and vaguely spiritual aspirations.

    That uncomfortable flash of shame even as we smile at his antics is what makes Life's Too Short so oddly engaging.
    • 65 Metascore

    Depending on your tolerance, it's either a ridiculous presentation best suited to a drinking game (take a gulp every time the screen goes black), or a paranormal adventure that owes everything to "Lost."
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Joanne Ostrow
    The cast, from Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty to Debra Messing and Angelica Huston, is superb. The subject matter is a carefully blended mix of artistic and accessible.

    We'll see if audiences can tolerate the notion of profound interrelatedness as weekly entertainment.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Joanne Ostrow
    A spoofy, sarcastic and hilarious exercise in adult animation.
    • 46 Metascore

    A gross-out cartoon. Fans of "Archer" likely won't sit still for the more juvenile antics of Unsupervised.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Joanne Ostrow
    It's all very creepy, mysterious and loaded with questions.

    Rob! is genuinely offensive.
    • 85 Metascore

    Judging by the first five hours of the second season, it successfully broadens the storylines of several key characters. The cast is first-rate; only Elizabeth McGovern? occasionally rings a false.
