    The language is offensive, the characters, in one light, reprehensible. But they and their show are a lot like puppies, too - incorrigible, yet lovable. You can't wait to see whose slipper they'll chew next. [29 Jun 2006]

    Comics have been doing this sort of thing on TV since I Love Lucy and The Jackie Gleason Show in the '50s, but never with the hilarious depravity of Sunny.

    Let's get this straight. Everybody Hates Chris is not the Second Coming. But it is one of the season's best new series.

    [Rollergirls] skillfully convey[s] the ups and downs of everyday life, man trouble, hard partying, athletic rivalry, in an unfamiliar culture. But the show adds a layer of visceral excitement, as superb camera work and editing bring the intensity of the competition into genteel living rooms.

    It demonstrates the potential of reality television to go beyond determining who can eat the most worms or scream the loudest, to illuminate important social and cultural issues.

    A well-made rocket ride that's closer to 24 than anything else on TV.

    It may not be a creative breakthrough, but it's lots funnier than the universal equation would predict.

    The show is equal parts silliness and satire.

    [It] is sure to occupy a special place in Emmy voters' hearts.

    One of this season's best new series.

    It's about the ultimate outcast and his efforts to become human. Like all good drama, it uses heightened characters to magnify struggles we all have.

    Cane, at 10 p.m., stars ever-hunky Jimmy Smits and a huge cast that ranges from a 12-year-old to Hector Elizondo and Rita Moreno, in a tale of--what else?--lust, money, romance and family intrigue. We've seen it all before, but never this appealingly.

    Glau's the best part of Chronicles, playing the robot who seeks to understand human stuff with a beguiling bemusement reminiscent of Jeff Bridges in "Starman."

    Aliens in America, a darling and delightful sitcom with a social conscience.

    Reaper is right up there with the best new shows of the season, better, actually, than NBC's "Chuck" because it dares to be more radical.

    The Tudors is loads of addictive fun, filled with intrigue, the delicious papal stylings of Peter O'Toole, and that old stand-by, hot sex.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 80 Jonathan Storm
    It's a cornucopia of fanciful sets and costumes and more computer graphic imaging than you'll find anywhere else on TV, and a lot of it is pretty cool.

    It's unpredictable and stimulating, like the drug that White manufactures, but it produces a much safer high.

    Breaking Bad is tougher to watch than Showtime's "Weeds," about a suburban-mom drug dealer, or "Dexter," whose serial killer wields his bloody blades with good intentions. But the rewards of Breaking are great.

    The episodes, each supposedly one day in the life of America, should leave viewers squirming, not just with laughter at the failings they portray, but with anticipation that Ullman and Showtime will hurry up and make some more.

    • 80 Jonathan Storm
    It is a finely crafted serial about contemporary and supposedly representative people in the same decade of life.

    The shows are fun and exciting, Mr. Blow, perfect for a stay-at-home Friday night, having a few guys over for beers, or recording and watching when you wake up Saturday afternoon, after all that hard partying.

    Worst Week is a dandy confection, as slight and silly and flat-out hilarious as anything that's come along on TV in a few years.

    The first episode is entertaining and promising enough that viewers may get excited about seeing the second one.

    Valentine puts a modern twist on family drama that's edgy and fun without being overwrought or vulgar.

    You ain't seen this stuff on TV before, my friends, and if you're smart, you'll search it out and enjoy.

    Andrew Davies, who made 2006's Bleak House one of the best TV shows of the year, crafts another superb script, with characters and incidents squeezing out the sides, just the thing to satisfy close observers, which anyone joining this maxi mini-series should be.

    Insightful, smart and lyrical, Spectacle soars when so much of cable TV seems intent on locating the most distressing nadir of human culture.
