    The show's repetitive voice-overs are annoying. But you'll be sucked into this dangerous venture.

    Dead is always at its most unsettling--and poignant--when its characters have a moment to breathe and to address their dark, nightmarish world.

    King, Cudlitz and McKenzie carry this drama, in note-perfect peformances. They make Southland a worthy part of your Tuesday night stakeout.

    When Jackie snaps over one patient's plight, she could be speaking for impatient viewers: "People gotta stop trying to save people who don't want to be saved." Same goes for TV characters stuck in the same shtick.

    The sets and costuming are top-notch. The musical score is brash, if redundant. The personal dramas range from silly to 
diverting.

    Face Off hews so much to the Runway formula, it practically falls over and busts a lip, but at least the pacing is fast.

    Primeval (which has already been renewed for a fifth season) doesn't ask you to think, just to enjoy the mayhem that follows when a rampaging behemoth is set loose anywhere in the United Kingdom. It's hard to find fault with a formula like that.

    With its frantic pacing, ­vicious masterminds and ­valiant law enforcement agents, Crisis might remind you of Fox’s “24.” Not the best seasons of “24,” but still. There’s a lot to be said for a show that works up a sweat trying to surprise you.

    The castmates aren't polished performers, but they know how to work a joke fast and move on. [4 Aug 2005]

    The dark tone might be the greatest barrier at first to viewers, but the cast rolls with the wisecracks.

    Boardwalk shows no signs of losing its identity. All signs point to a bloody proper finish.

    While often touching, it's a lightweight addition to HBO's schedule.

    The six-episode series mixes this type of sharp -humor and dialogue with gory scenes and tense horror.

    Give Lost Girl a try. You might be seduced.

    Longmire isn't a conventional show. The mystery tonight might be slight, but the pilot is a dusty little gem.
    • 72 Metascore

    Under the Dome is the TV equivalent [of a ham sandwich], with all the fixings: a goofy, sometimes creepy, thriller from horror maestro Stephen King about a town trapped under a large invisible barrier.

    Inside moves quickly and delivers smartly paced, albeit scripted surprises.

    For shows that play to our longing for America's lost days of glory, the sky's the limit.

    Things are about to get a lot worse on Penny Dreadful, and for viewers, that is a very good thing indeed.

    This bleak depiction of hospital work locates the show about two degrees south of “St. Elsewhere.” And yet, after I finished the first three episodes, I realized I was hooked; I wanted more.

    If their melodrama isn't always gripping, Nip/Tuck rushes in an array of guest stars as distractions. [5 Sept 2006, p.36]

    Moore's impersonation of Sarah Palin is the hook to reel you into HBO'S latest truelife political thriller.

    Holloway looks leaner than his Sawyer days and cleans up nice. Ory, such a spitfire on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” as both Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, seems tamed here, and unfortunately, a little dull.

    The discussion of vampire politics seems toothless at times, but True excels at setting up episode-ending cliffhangers. The episode pacing is superb.

    'The Closer' may be the first TV series to mimic ['Desperate Housewives''] ability to present women with textured, complicated lives. [12 Jun 2005]

    The good part involves just about any scene focusing on Angie Harmon ("Law & Order") as Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli. The flip side? Just about every scene that isn't centered on her, especially those involving Jane's best friend, medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander).

    The cartoon is often laugh-out-loud funny, pulling off ridiculously zany sight gags, such as when Mondo decides to impress a girl by surfing and, instead, inadvertently beheads a bird, among other things.

    There may be fewer jump scares, but this could turn out to be the best Horror Story.

    The unscripted series is surprisingly engrossing and probably more valuable than two years of film school for would-be auteurs.

    Legit is the sort of comedy that lets its heart beat once an episode.
