    The people of Orange offer some of the best times, and company, to be found on TV.

    Billions has the posture of sociopolitical expose, the mechanics of a soap opera and the morals of grave robber. In other words, it’s irresistible.... The biggest reason to watch Billions is the acting talent, something which even the endlessly expository dialogue and absurd characterizations can’t totally quash.

    Silicon Valley, the latest creation of Mike Judge ("Office Space," "King of the Hill"), gets off to a rough start Sunday night; one might say it tries too hard. But it's certainly worth the 30-minute expenditure, because well before Episode 5 it's in a comedic groove and seems destined to run beyond the eight-week run HBO currently has planned.

    Some of the life forms in Almost Human are artificial. The intelligence is genuine.

    If ever a show was made for hate-viewing, it’s The Slap.... Where The Slap will be going in subsequent episodes is unclear and, mostly, irrelevant. Any and all misfortune, however, will be warmly welcomed.

    In attempting to crawl inside the head of Mr. Madoff--given just a touch of ghoulishness by Mr. Dreyfuss--it provides solidly sordid entertainment. But it also elevates its subject into an object of sympathy.
