    Taking on Tyson is only a six-part series, but, in that limited time, this heartwarming, gorgeously filmed show reveals a terrifying man who has not just grown up, but grown into someone you now might want to know.

    Kaling has lined up enough very funny actors to get this Project the kind of respect that Dr. Mindy never seems to get.

    If you're a purist James M. Cain fan, this is the miniseries for you. The intricacies of the story are laid out like a delicious Mildred chicken buffet. But, if you adore the original zippy, wise-cracking crime story with ankle-straps, order up Netflix instead.

    I really, really, like the newest incarnation on the little screen. [6 Oct 2000, p.117]

    Izzard and Driver are so good that you may be able to overlook a lot - like a plot to believe in.

    Both soaps are perfectly awful on almost every level, which makes them nothing, if not, well, hilariously perfect soap scum.

    Sounds boring, but it's anything but.

    The plot is clever and there's a nice twist at the end, but the actors haven't found a rhythm, nor have they developed any chemistry.

    After watching the movie, I may not have actually changed my mind about her innocence--but for the first time, I sure have doubts.

    Yes, there's a heavy hand in the schmaltz department, what with the dead mother and the wounded beasts and all (Hey! It's Africa after all!) but it's not so heavy that it's annoyingly cloying. At least it worked for me.

    The premiere is actually very good. Of course, it would be a whole lot better if there were a new investigation into a new crime.

    All in all, even with an accomplished actor like Hutton, there's nothing special to set Leverage apart from other cookie-cutter dramas of this ilk.

    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.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but you'd need rocks in your head to really love Game Show In My Head.

    All in all, it's a good show. The problem, however, is the retreaded storyline.

    If you love, history on History, don't miss this.

    It's heartwarming, it's sweet, and it's just the ticket if you, too, happen to be a 10-year-old girl or the parents of one.

    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.

    Some of this show is funny, but you may want to put paper down on your couch to keep you from catching an STD.

    While the cast is quite good, and they even manage to rip a laugh or two out of the material, it's not enough to sustain a whole show.

    What the series gains this season by giving us more history and more compelling storylines, it loses by repeating some of its, er, epic mistakes. Again, no battle scenes - some of the most important in all of history - are shown.

    So far, so great.

    Huge fun and - if at all possible - almost as nerve-wracking as "Idol."

    Chiklis chews scenery--in a good, very good way--and Quaid is terrific, but both deserve far better than what they're given here.

    Dopey? Yes. But the action scenes are terrifically exciting and very well done, and Hawke does his damndest to survive the overacting of Hurt and the underacting of Cox, who is so wooden he should be the one hobbling around on that wooden stump.

    TNT is right to bring back the format--well done whodunits.
