    Less brutal than "Sons of Anarchy" or "The Shield," it's nonetheless a true male fantasy show complete with broads, bad guys, blow-ups, bullets and buckets of blood.

    Cinema Verite works in the same off-kilter way that HBO's "Grey Gardens" worked.

    Yes, it still seems, er, fresh, and the addition of Lagasse is a good one. Acheson, on the other hand, is as lively as Padma Lakshmi....But that doesn't mean it's not exciting. In fact, there are lots of interesting challenges this season.

    If you were worried about your favorite show's favorite character's replacement, rest assured that Fishburne's Langston is different enough to walk easily in Grissom's paper lab shoes.

    Lotsa good, clean/dirty fun for the clean--and dirty-minded--among us.

    The cover songs are great and McPhee does a fine job with them, but the original tunes are very much of the overdone show-tune variety.

    Like "Sex and the City" with its clothes on.

    It's not quite as randy--it's become less of a soap and more of a historical drama. This is not to say it's not great.
    • 71 Metascore

    It's crude, shocking and politically incorrect on a cosmic level. And that's just part of what makes Legit so damned funny.

    The show's still a hoot to watch. Besides which, the actors are almost as cute as real NYC firefighters. Almost. [12 June 2007, p.97]

    Like a hybrid human, Dark Matters combines science with good, old-fashioned thrills to produce a whole new species. Great fun.

    Verdict: guilty--of being a guilty pleasure.

    Think the (hint! hint!) demon love child of “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” and “Rosemary’s Baby,” meets “National Treasure.” The series seems inspired by all of them, mostly successfully.

    I liked it, but I'm still not sure why.

    What’s right with this movie are the performances.

    There's a laugh-track that's loud enough for the dead to hear. And a lot of the jokes are straight out of the sitcom how-to handbook. But that doesn't mean that you won't laugh every twice in a while.

    Not only did I enjoy the upcoming The Ricky Gervais Show, which is an insane animated version of his equally insane podcasts, but I laughed so loud that I practically had to be restrained in the office.

    The premiere is slow to start, but does get better if you hang in there--or in the case of the T-Rex, hang on there.
    • 72 Metascore

    There's enough intrigue, suspense and interesting characters here to make Ripper Street a worthwhile viewing endeavor.

    These Miss Advisors have heart, which is a rare commodity on reality TV.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 75 Linda Stasi
    The laughs can carry the show, so they seriously don't need the canned laughter and traditional TV sitcom sets. It keeps it all too safe. But so far? Not so bad.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Linda Stasi
    The acting here is first rate -- not a bad apple in the whole rotten bunch.
    • 57 Metascore

    While this all sounds fresh, don't think for a minute you're going to be seeing anything that hasn't been re-packaged before.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Linda Stasi
    There are allegories galore--from celibacy to puberty (all that body "processing"), alienation and, yes, teen angst of the "what the heck is that thing on my back?" variety. Think "Teen Wolf" for girls.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Linda Stasi
    With a snarky running dialogue from Tessa (Jane Levy), the laughs are as easy and as sophisticated as she is. Or as she thinks she is--and that's the key.

    Elementary actually works on many levels, not the least of which is his reason for being in NYC.

    Who knew real estate could be so riveting?

    New season, more promise. Good start. But seriously? Fewer plot-lines would be even better.
    • 57 Metascore

    Lots of good, crime-solving fun.
    • 76 Metascore

    Manhunt: The Inside Story of the Hunt for bin Laden on HBO is still very worth watching because it’s told from the perspective of the actual people who brought him down.

    For those of you for whom too much Ramsay is never enough, MasterChef is a dream come true. But for those for whom too much Ramsay is too much, the dream might seem like a recurring one.

    Campbell, Kurkova and Rocha--all insanely competitive with each other--stage the shoot with the models’ input, and it’s flat-out fun to watch legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier in action.

    The pros take them through the paces of makeovers, haircuts and a trial shoot. And you will be surprised who makes it and who doesn't.

    The show is definitely strange - and sometimes very funny. But it's so odd that it makes the "Seinfeld" format look conventionally linear.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Linda Stasi
    Problem is that Episode 1 is so out there and over-wrought that you might not make the trip back for Episode 2. That would be a mistake. Week two is when it gets riveting.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Linda Stasi
    Simple and fun, if not exactly memorable.
    • 81 Metascore

    Poverty and pigeons, bread and circuses--and so much decadent good fun, it's positively sinful.

    Wolf is not about to break any new ground here. He's just creating the kind of TV that people watch.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Linda Stasi
    I would have preferred the whole crime family thing, but there could be some good laughs as the family attempts to work at legit jobs. It probably won't be as funny as breaking-and-entering, but I'll give it two more weeks to decide whether good will be good--or bad.

    Tonight, through the miracle of modern medicine, the show comes roaring back with a plot that includes the, er, trauma of Seattle Grace Hospital being downgraded from the number two facility in the state to the number 12.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Linda Stasi
    All in all, a great good time with not one single character to like. Now, that's entertainment!
    • 88 Metascore
    • 75 Linda Stasi
    Yes, there is a lot to love here, but too often the bad guys are standard-issue gangsters--while the women are one dimensional, naked, needy and greedy.

    Riveting as ever, Battlestar Galactica proves again that sci fi doesn't have to be clap trap.

    While it sounds pedantic, downright corny, and done to death, Drop Dead Diva is actually fun, funny and sometimes and in some ways even touching.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 75 Linda Stasi
    The show is by turns sweet and funny.

    It's the dialogue that takes this series over the top.
