    Luther avoids some genre cliches--we know the killer's identity from the get-go, which sidesteps the time-stamp predictability of a Law & Order episode--but plunges headfirst into others.

    This powerful documentary about the lingering effects of military conflict makes the point that PTSD existed long before we named it.

    Fishburne's gravitas helps do the Supreme Court justice...justice.

    While the show is not yet as boundary-pushing as Chappelle's, it is funny, and that should never be taken for granted.

    The pilot is promising, with sharp dialogue, a solid supporting cast, and Kaling's appealing unapologetic protagonist. [28 Sep 2012, p.64]

    Overall, it’s a whole lot of premise-setting and foundation-building, but there’s enough here to be optimistic that this will be one more tick in the Good column of movie/TV synergy.

    It's an oddity, but the comfortable looseness makes up for the fact that it's really about nothing in particular.

    Suits follows a slick, big-time lawyer (Gabriel Macht) who hires a mnemonic genius without a law degree (Patrick J. Adams), and the rest is likely just what we can expect from every remaining episode: kinda fun, moderately enjoyable, and reassuringly unchanging.

    A few key tweaks to the story and Joseph Fiennes' puckish interpretation of the king's right-hand sorcerer keep the legend from getting too stale

    It has sharp writing and endearing characters.

    A template house-party plot and goofy supporting characters end up steering it toward something more predicable. [20 Jan 2012, p.71]

    Oliver can get a little overbearing, as even his wife admits, just because he's always so darn earnest. But hey, in a world of Real Housewives and shirtless, brainless tandroids, thank God somebody is.

    It's definitely not at that level [Battlestar Galactia], but with significantly higher production values and better acting (including from T-1000 Robert Patrick) than the vast majority of Syfy ventures, it easily steps up and over a bar that's set so very, very low.

    It's one part silly manufactured reality drama and one part Kenneth Anger fantasia, all ruled by a Tyra-nnical Queen of Hearts.

    [Both first episodes are] funny enough on their own, although taken together they reveal how easily the show's formula can be read after being on the air for so long. [12 Sep 2014, p.58]

    They’re all well acted, wryly funny, and between 6 and 11 minutes long: the perfect dosage to leave you smiling, with no unpleasant aftereffects.
