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

    [A] thoroughly captivating Rolling Stones documentary.

    Maron is short, funny and coherent.

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

    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.

    Despite some clumsy exposition by its creators, Jack Amiel and Michael Begler, it has a well-researched sense of place.

    Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth is not quite the train wreck one might expect.... Mostly he vents. And whether Mr. Tyson delivers the truth as advertised isn't really the question. It's whether anyone, at this point, cares very much.

    Turn can be described as both sturdy and unsteady.... Mr. Bell is a less-than-charismatic centerpiece, but he also makes emotional sense.

    The veracity of this series is, in the end, less important than what it says about a culture in which people blithely create online worlds on a collision course with the truth. Schadenfreude may be the lifeblood of reality television, but in "Catfish," it's fairly guilt free.

    That no one acts in a manner remotely plausible during Murder in the First, regarding either the law or human life, will have viewers feeling like they're just being moved through the system.

    Spontaneity is scripted; hopes and dreams are meant to be crushed; the woeful are exalted; characters are unsympathetic.

    Everyone seems to be imitating someone they saw in another gangster movie. It would be funny, if it weren't quite so tedious.
