    Beneath the craziness and violence are some great character studies, meditations on the nature of humanity, clever social commentary, fun flashbacks to vampire lives in past centuries and, as always, cable-ready hard bodies.

    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

    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.
    • 55 Metascore

    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.
    • 29 Metascore

    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.
