    This engagingly uncomfortable series is not like anything you've seen before.

    They've added a new element that makes it something I can finally (I'm sorry) sink my teeth into. They've added politics as blood sport.

    Aside from the gratuitous sexual stuff, Awkward is a really good, funny, fun show.

    The second episode is 30 percent better than the first. Maybe by episode six, it will actually be watchable.

    This Traffic is a lot more realistic than the movie. [26 Jan 2004]

    Once you get past the stupid stuff, such as the sex-goddess submarine tech designer and the equally gorgeous sub's Chief Navigator, Grace (Daisy Betts) there's something pretty damned good here.

    Unlike almost all other shows, Nip/Tuck doesn't give you cliffhangers and episodes that lead up to finales - with this show, every episode is as good as a season finale. And as shocking. Number 15 blade, please!

    This "women's" show is such an embarrassing mess, it makes me ashamed to be a woman.

    For reasons too obvious to bother with, NBC managed to take a really terrific and fun premiere and somehow let it morph over the following episodes into just another take-it-or-leave-it show.

    I'm happy to report that this season, there's More Blood! More Torture! More Killing! and More Intrigue! than last season.

    The Tudors, Showtime's all-of-the-above series, comes roaring back Sunday night as fresh as its first season.

    The show is a hoot-and-a-half...I just thought Nip/Tuck was so over-the-top that it was crazy. It is crazy, but it's also funny and can even be deep about the shallow world of cosmetic surgery.

    It just feels like nothing else you've seen on TV.

    What this well-written series does not need is a character [Louise Ellison (Jennifer Ferrin), a NYC reporter] whose only job seems to be moving the story along with expository dialogue in the guise of interviews.

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

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

    A line-for-line ripoff of Bravo's not-terribly successful "The Real Housewives of Orange County."

    The acting is as good as you'll see on TV (take a hard look at the genius of RJ Mitte, who really does have CP). And the script and plot are as out-there as creator/writer/producer Vince Gilligan's other series, "The X-Files."

    Don't get me wrong, there are some good laughs here, but there's also the threat that 30 Rock could easily turn into that thing the writers relentlessly make fun of--TV shows and stars that are too smug, too smart and too out-of-touch for their own good.

    Every character is unique - but almost none compares in strangeness to Bobby Munson (Mark Boone, Jr.), a Jewish killer/gang member/Elvis impersonator. Yes, I love this show.

    Matt produces two products in surplus amounts: cheese and corn. And I'm not talking by-products of animal husbandry.

    Fewer models with more time to talk about themselves and much less about the "fabulous people in the industry" that treated them like goddesses would have made this documentary as good as it is glamorous.

    The premise--and it's a good one--is a singing contest "American Idol"-style, for young singers to compete for the grand prize of a recurring role in a seven-episode arc of "Glee." And it's not some fake promo for the show with people who really have nothing to do with the show.

    Suspend all disbelief, pretend the really, really offensive laugh track doesn't exist, disregard the giant slabs of ham offered up by Jensen and Parham, and enjoy the chemistry between Elfman and Foster.

    This show is genuinely ingenious, and hilariously outrageous - not to mention courageous. Plenty of people will find Chappelle's Show offensive - but then again, whenever you do something completely new, it's bound to offend somebody. In this case, it will offend a lot of somebodies.

    Thorne: Sleepyhead, has enough twists, turns, red herrings and multi-layered narrative to keep you couch-bound for its entire two hours.
