    Nothing but shocker after shocker.

    All the new characters are wonderfully drawn, including FBI agent Walker (Annie Wersching); bad, bad guy Jonas Hodges (Jon Voight); a new Chloe-type nerd (Janeane Garofalo). Especially good are Jones and her husband (Colm Feore), who is more consumed with solving his son's death than in being First Man. Whew! Thank God there is Jack Bauer--unchanging, unflinching.

    I love this show. I never thought I'd love a reality show, because mostly I hated all those shows with their wannabe models, fat yutzes and half-wits who try to be as smart as the fat yutz from "Survivor" but are dumber than a family tree of Bushes. But this one actually is so good I am already addicted.

    A very funny, very hip, very terrific sci-fi show.

    The best detective show to come along in, well, decades...It is so clever, that it makes you remember how good TV used to be - and still can be when they use actors who didn't train at Ford Models. And when they hire writers who can actually put two words together...I promise you, you've never seen anything quite like it. [11 July 2002, p.73]

    The best new network show of the season...It's bright, it's dark, it's stylized, it's realistic - in short, I haven't been this enthusiastic about a dramatic network show since "CSI" and haven't been as happy with an ABC show since "Alias."

    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!

    I laughed so much, I'm sure I hurt something, maybe in my back, or maybe in my front. [16 July 2004, p.121]

    What would you get if you combined the brains behind "The Usual Suspects" and "The X-Men" with the writer of "Quiz Show" and "Homicide: Life On the Streets"? Aside from a lotta smarts, you'd get House, the best new show since "Lost." [16 Nov 2004, p.91]

    In an age when TV is quickly going the way of all idiots, a show like this is a gift...I watched three episodes and can't wait to see more! more! more!

    This new phase takes the show from sometimes cartoonish to serious, punctuated with belly-laugh dialogue. This is thanks, in no small part, to Michael J. Fox, who is in six episodes this year.

    The talented hopefuls they pick are either so needy, driven or over-confident that you can't help but to be riveted by their plights. [7 Dec 2005]

    So what is there to like about this show? The same thing there was to like about "The Sopranos" and "The Shield" - great writing, insanely good acting, deeply troubled and deeply layered characters and a plot that will keep you glued to your seat.

    If you love a big, seriously politically incorrect, brilliantly funny show that delivers belly laughs of the "South Park" quantity, then this one's for you.

    The best new show this season. [5 Aug 2005]

    Happily, "Weeds" hasn't dropped a petal or missed even a beat this season.
    • 50 Metascore

    A show so unusual in its format and plot that it will rival both "Lost" and "24" in creativity and "The O.C." in its character development.

    As good and as riveting as the high school football-as-soap-opera show has been in the past, this season is even better.

    Fey's back to her day job tonight and 30 Rock is as funny as ever, as cynical as we hoped, and as fresh as if it were a freshman show.

    Not only the funniest new show this season, but the strangest one since "Get A Life."

    "Elizabeth I" soars on every level from the writing, to the directing to the acting.

    It's not only laugh-out-loud-until-soda-squirts-out-of-your-nose funny, but it's also perfectly cast.

    As profane as "Deadwood" and as profound as "The Sopranos," the series strikes every right chord.
    • 65 Metascore

    Everyone is spectacular, even the secondary players like Leonard Armond Robinson as Mickey Rivers, who steals more scenes than bases, and Erik Jensen, who so underplays Munson that he's mesmerizing - and, most especially, Michael Rispoli, who plays Jimmy Breslin - or should I say becomes Breslin? Don't miss it. Just great.

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

    Showtime's glorious, gorgeous "The Tudors" is the best series since "The Sopranos." Period.

    The dialog is crisply Pileggi, natch, but it's the flavor of South Beach, the most exciting American city in the 1990's (before the tourists realized that it was safe to go back in the water) that's captured precisely.

    If the "opening statements" don't have you on the floor calling for a back brace--because you've thrown your spine out from laughing--then you are either in a coma or watching a different channel.
