    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    Among the most stimulating and entertaining series of the last 10 years and far and away the best new network show of the 1992-93 season.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    The [first episode], along with two other episodes sent to critics, dispels any of last year's feeling that The Sopranos was losing a little steam. They demonstrate a constant ability to surprise. [4 Mar 2001]

    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    TV's best sitcom. [3 Jan 2004]

    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    Foul-mouthed, violent and potentially depressing with its unvarnished characters, The Shield also shocks your heart with pounding action and tickles your brain by presenting a cops-and-robbers world where almost everyone is at least morally ambiguous, at worst corrupt. [12 Mar 2002]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    The best that the new season has to offer, an elegantly written, splendidly acted, spiritual and moving family drama. [25 Sept 2003, p.D01]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    The perfect marriage of television and literature.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    A wonderfully complex drama, with plenty of sly humor, that showcases slick performances from its two stars, and magically straddles the parallel universes of film noir and high school high jinks, while generously tossing out amusing asides. [22 Sept 2004, p.D1]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    Rescue Me burns with authenticity, rising from the newly cluttered landscape of summer TV programming to become the No. 1 must-see. [21 July 2004, p.F01]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 77 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    One of the best comedies in years.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    The best new TV show of the 2006-07 season.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    The Pacific groans with technically preposterous battle scenes, but it is the minute behavior of ordinary men both in and after those extraordinary circumstances that takes your breath away and helps put The Pacific in a class of its own among war movies.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    Boston Med operates at the edges of real life in a way scripted shows can only approach. It is the single must-see broadcast-TV show of the summer.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    With the tormented Luther, it's sometimes tough even to identify who is the cat and who is the mouse. Writing and acting come together to produce characters, more than stories, who are powerful, surprising, ambiguous, and all that other stuff.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    In so many ways, it's as good as television gets.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    It's no lie to say you don't get this sort of stylish and challenging stuff very frequently on TV, adult subject matter treated maturely in a series that makes you squirm and think.
    • 99 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    Murder One is, hands down, the season's best new series. Others may be scarier or funnier, but tonight's pilot demonstrates that Murder One is an intense expression of television art.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Storm
    [A] brilliant, layered cops-and-robbers series -- the best since NYPD Blue. [27 Oct 1996]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    Angel is more straight-ahead action than Buffy, but it is a spin-off that twirls terrificly. Plunked behind Buffy, it completes the most joyously entertaining two hours on television. [5 Oct 1999, p.E01]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    It's trying too hard, a rare and forgivable occurrence on TV. Still, the characters are crackerjack, the dialogue frequently poetic. [10 Oct 2000, p.E01]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    It's a touching, funny, lively show that really does appeal to all ages.

    NewsRadio is, like Murphy Brown, a slightly sophisticated (it is television, after all) ensemble comedy set in the newsroom, in which each character blends a healthy portion of absurdity with a strong slice of reality. But NewsRadio is better than Murphy Brown ever was. [21 Mar 1995]

    Amy Brenneman, as Licalsi, is the dark-haired, more visceral contrast to Kelly's wife, Laura, played by Sherry Stringfield. Both women add depth to the drama, as do James McDaniel as the precinct commander, Nicholas Turturro as the new kid in the cop shop and Tom Towles as the guy from the Organized Crime Squad.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    The sweetest, funniest and most original family sitcom that has come to TV in a long time. [6 Jan 2000]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    One of the best new series of the season. [30 Sept 2001, p.H01]

    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    The Amazing Race... looks like The West Wing of reality, the first of the descendants of Survivor that may outshine its parent. [2 Sep 2001]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 95 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    An immensely satisfying - and immensely complicated - police drama. [31 May 2003]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 65 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    It's difficult to take your eyes off the screen, not just because it depicts events that are at once moving and puzzling, but also because the pictures themselves are visually commanding. [13 Sep 2003]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 67 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    The best traditional sitcom to arrive on the tube since "Everybody Loves Raymond." Perfectly cast, sharply written. [22 Sept 2003, p.E06]

    Another heart-stopping adventure show from "Alias"'s J.J. Abrams...Lost undertakes the ambitious assignment of developing 14 characters, including the usual tough guys and brave gals, as well as a rotund, lovable dolt, a 9-year-old boy, and a Korean couple who don't speak English, all suddenly thrust together to fight for survival. If anybody can meet the challenge, it's Abrams. [22 Sept 2004, p.D01]

    This sparkling saga of an extended dysfunctional family has more laughs than regular characters.

    The best sitcom this year, and one of the best in a lot of years.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    This season's best new show.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    This may be one of the most beautifully crafted and original TV shows ever to get fall consideration on a big network.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    The monumental production is worth bragging about.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, whose pilot is the first feature-length film made in Botswana--a movie that starts off one of the most glowingly original, kindhearted, and genuinely engaging TV series of this fading decade.

    The song and dance spills over everywhere, even onto the football field, in this season's best new TV show, Glee.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    Justified itself stays on target all the time, too, an instant entrant in the best-new-show sweepstakes in a TV season that already has several solid candidates.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    The Killing is also the least prepossessing, an eerily quiet, yet compelling and complex, tale of the way the murder of a teenager affects the lives of many people.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    More than any of Burns' documentaries except The Civil War, Prohibition provides viewers with a real feel for the times as well as new and surprising information.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    By opening up the drug world, transforming political constructs into complex, fascinating human beings as lovable (and hateful) as you and me, The Corner does compelling public service. It should be required viewing for public officials. [16 Apr 2000, p.101]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Storm
    In the hands of executive producer Judd Apatow, late of Freaks and Geeks, Undeclared is sublimely kindhearted and funny. [25 Sept 2001, p.C03]
