    Family Matters offers a picture of black family life that takes its middle-class ordinariness for granted, which is unusual for TV. Even more unusual, it's a show you can watch with your whole family, and chances are, everyone will get a few good laughs out of it.

    Dead is beautifully shot, but what it's shooting are former humans with rotting skin and bleating agonized groans. And like the comics, there's great, grim humor.

    Outrageous lewdness and delightful non sequiturs speed by, which makes each episode rewardingly rewatchable.

    He's always making his audience come up to his level, instead of lowering himself to theirs. He's gonna do just fine. But more Andy, please.

    The show can simultaneously unsettle, comfort, excite, and amuse its viewers--something for everyone, if you, like Mr. Finch, like to watch.

    All the performances are skillful, with Heaton and Flynn especially adept at conveying an affection--for each other, for their kids (who also include Atticus Shaffer and Charlie McDermott)--undimmed by their weariness.

    Viewers who don't know a Trekker from a Tribble may nevertheless be drawn into the orbit of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, the latest, darkest, and densest TV Star Trek yet. If the original Trek is the Old Testament of television science fiction and Star Trek: The Next Generation its New Testament, then Deep Space Nine is the Apocrypha — mysterious variations on Trek lore that work as ripping tales in their own right.

    The weakest aspect of Seinfeld is a wacky next-door neighbor played by Michael Richards. Richards is doing little more than an impersonation of Christopher Lloyd's Jim on Taxi, and he ought to cut it out.

    I stopped watching Chicago Hope early on last season; it had gotten too soapy, and I missed crazy boys Mandy Patinkin and Peter MacNicol. Compelled by critical duty to catch up this season, I've gotten hooked again.
