    Strangely enough, the only scenes that aren't so dark that you need night-vision goggles to watch, are the ones with the naked ladies. Then, suddenly the lights are finally working properly. Still, there's something compelling about it all--maybe it's the era, or the clothes, or the hint that this could be something terrific.

    "'Til Death's" Garrett, the man who made Jackie Gleason look like a disgusting manic-depressive jerk in that awful CBS movie, seems to be bringing the same unpleasant character to his first leading-man role in a sitcom.

    The charming, fun series of books has become a charming, fun TV series (seven episodes in all) on HBO, starring Grammy-winner Jill Scott as the books' No. 1 protagonist/heroine, Precious Ramotswe

    This brings up the writing, which is strictly discount--and so are the plots, which don't tell us enough in the victims he saves.

    For fans, it's a bloody good start. For everyone else, there's always "CSI: New York" -- where you get the blood without the guts.

    Even though we all know what happens, somehow in the hands of these magnificent women, you'll be wishing and hoping for a different ending.

    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.

    Not like anything else on TV.

    The locales are great, the plots are interesting and the acting for the most part is good--although they should have cast actors who don't look like lingerie models.

    Lots of fun, lots of laughs, lots of good, heartwarming plots.

    The season's first episode is pretty damned riveting.

    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.

    Lots of fun--and I for one am thrilled to see a show in which most of the characters don't look like they took time off from modeling to act.

    With an impossibly good cast, writing so spot-on it's poetic, and slow-build stories, I, for one, was left wanting more--even after watching the entire season.

    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]

    Great fun, good personalities and some fine food. All in all, the start to another good season(ing).

    The Lebowitz film, Public Speaking, directed by Martin Scorsese and produced by Graydon Carter--combines hilarious, contemporary interviews with Lebowitz about life in NYC, mixed with old clips of her in the Andy Warhol days, and great clips of her appearances on old talk shows.

    By the second part of this excellent thriller you won't know who are the bad guys and who are the really bad guys, which is how it's supposed to be.

    With jokes so bad, they make Carrot Top look funny, it's a tough haul for all--all around.

    While every single actor is perfect and perfectly funny in his role, every time Richardson opens his mouth, I nearly spit my Weight Watchers fat-free snack food all over my desk. The guy is brilliant.

    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 few plot lines that don't revolve around her sex appeal--such as her older daughter becoming everything-aphobic, Eddie becoming crazy, and Dr. O'Hara (Eve Best) moving at warp speed on her self-destruction path--are all so interesting, it makes you long for more.

    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.

    The show, like the old "90210" and "The O.C.," looks to be--from its premiere, at any rate--a top-flight series about a group of high school students, most of whom I liked immediately.

    When the show returns Sunday night, it's all business and not much pleasure for the Henrickson clan--and, in some ways, for us viewers, as well.

    It helps to be a fan of Christopher Guest--the genius mockumentarian responsible for movies like “Best in Show” and “Waiting for Guffman”--if you’re going to love his new HBO series, Family Tree.
