    This one is not for everyone. I'm just glad it's one for me. [15 Oct 2000]

    It is absolutely riveting. And Anthony Michael Hall has grown up to be not only a terrific actor, but a hunk and a half.

    Although it's been described by other critics as a cop version of "The Sopranos," I don't see it. The only similarities are the fact that the lead characters are unlikely sex symbols, and on both shows you've got a bad guy with a heart somewhere in there...So why is this still any good? Because Chiklis is so good, because the writing is very good, and the cast has actors other than great-looking Gen Xers who look like they fell out of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

    I haven't the slightest idea what the heck I'm watching, but I've seen two of 'em now, and all I know is that two of 'em weren't enough. I wanted to watch a bunch more.

    As much fun and every bit as exciting as the last season. [7 Sep 2004]

    The only chink in the series' armour is the miscasting of Polly Walker as the evil Atia. She overacts so much, that it'll make you ache for Sian Phillips' long-ago portrayal as Livia in "I Claudius." While Rome's not as great as that old series, it's still deserves a helluva Hail Caesar!

    It's excellent on every level.

    Happily for you, when you see what each of those truly terrible characters is up to this year, your hair will stand on end like an FDLS lady with a sugar-water-stiffened 'do. It's so much more satisfying than a pizza and a night at the Bada Bing

    As usual, high-voltage drama ensues, including a big tear-down when one designer is given the completely wrong measurements for the model who will wear his gown.

    "Daniel" is not that controversial, but is really pretty damned, oops, darned good.

    A really good, really weird show.

    Not only an important series, but a darned good, action-packed one.

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

    If "Runaway" is a harbinger of things to come, it, er, harbinges very well indeed!

    Despite the fact that it revolves around standard-issue teens with troubled, rich parents, it pushes the formula a few steps . . . make that several steps farther.

    While tonight's premiere episode is good, the show really sprouts wings and flies in episode two.

    The writing is so good, so clean and understated that it's a pleasure to behold.

    Kalyan, Byrd and Duncan will make you laugh out loud they are so good. And being standouts here is almost impossible because it's so well done.

    In their own bizarre way each episode is very American, very naive and very full of hope. Oh, yeah - and a lot of laughs, too.

    Watch for the smart dialogue and the sweep of historical events. But mostly watch for Keaton in a career-best performance. You won't forget it.

    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."

    If you thought "Tropic Thunder" was the funniest movie of the year and that everything Will Ferrell touches makes you laugh until you squirt Diet Pepsi out of your nose, then you will love Eastbound & Down.

    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.

    Huge, a new series about overweight teens at a weight-loss camp, starts tonight, and I couldn't be happier if I'd just discovered calorie-free potato chips.

    It's funny, it's vicious, it's politically incorrect--in other words, everything that "Community" wants to be and isn't.

    Jay returned with that smart and smartass mix of talent and controversy that separates the pros from the bores.

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