    This remains one of the most intriguing series on television.

    At its weakest, Designing Women tends to be preachy, with Dixie Carter given five minutes for a show-stopping lecture about some Big Issue. But most of the time, it's raucously funny.

    Here's an interesting, uneven, impudent comedy-drama that may well prove to be summer television's most likably eccentric series.

    Despite the fact that Prime Suspect II isn't as strong as the original, it's still comparable with the best cop shows on American TV.

    Orbach has restored to Law & Order the grit it was starting to lack at the end of its '92 season. As Det. Lennie Briscoe, Orbach displays a smoky voice, impatient manner, and perennial air of hangdog cynicism that adds some realistic rust to L&O's gleaming efficiency.

    The new season of Angel is both Batman-dark and sly fun. What began as an awkward Buffy spin-off now has, under the guidance of exec producer David Greenwalt, its own tone, embodied by Boreanaz's relaxed L.A.-hipster vampire-detective: He's become the Dean Martin of bloodsuckers, and I mean that as a compliment.

    Wildly excessive, regularly boring, and, at regular intervals, great, clever fun.

    Ignored by the rest of the media, Baywatch has become all things to all people. Younger viewers, for example, enjoy the sun-dappled rescue scenes and the capering monkeyshines of Hasselhoff's TV son, Hobie, played by Jeremy Jackson. Devotees of camp, on the other hand, love the way Hasselhoff, with the distinctive visual style of a television auteur, frequently stops the action to insert scenes that amount to full-length music videos.
