    Series creator and writer Julian Fellowes has a habit of using dialogue to telegraph the obvious.

    Series creator/writer Neil Cross continues to spin dark strands that stray unexpectedly into unsettling territory.

    Ringer at times straddles camp--Bridget stays briefly in the "Double Nickel Motel," a wink that the two women truly are flip sides of the same scarred coin --but never succumbs to it, thanks to Gellar's muted performances.

    There’s something hilarious and twisted about outcasts running a school and turning out to be as much idiots as the typically popular kids. Faking It is the real deal.

    Ultimately, Sherlock doesn't play fair, but the game is so enjoyable, you'll be happy you joined in.

    The series gets off to a strong start as a black satire of not only D.C. but how politicians and journalists can leech off one another.

    The 75-minute “super-sized” premiere might leave you feeling a bit bloated, but Top Chef is still a satisfying treat.

    Suspense, surprises 
and crackling dialogue: True Blood is pumping strong again.

    [Caviezel] and Emerson make for one of fall's most formidable odd couples.

    If the first two episodes are any indication, this season of Homeland will be about Carrie not only recovering her balance but finding a measure of redemption. That's a trip worth taking.

    Sunny is now in its ninth season, but is not showing its age.

    Cynthia Cidre's smart take on the prime-time soap (1978-1991) pays homage to the past while moving the battle to the next generation.

    Leary is perfectly cast as the middle-aged wastrel with a modicum of talent and an ego the size of the Trump Tower.... Much of the show can’t be quoted. Many of the jokes you can see coming at you from the Zakim Bridge. They’re still funny.

    Rest easy: The premiere is good; next week’s episode is flat-out superb.

    A new day is approaching, and Don seems unprepared for what lies ahead.

    Last season, Elliot was trying to save the world; now he’s trying to save himself. That battle promises to have lots of casualties.

    What emerges is scary, graphic, unnerving and not for those easily vexed by nightmares.

    For those impatient for the return of "Mad Men," The Hour fills that void and then some.

    For fans of quality TV, The Knick will evoke memories of the South Boston-set “St. Elsewhere.” That show needed more than a season to work out its kinks. The Knick is already off to a robust start.

    Her voice seems to roam all over the vocal register, but she is compelling.... West will make you forget he’s acting.

    BBC America's Being Human (the original, not to be confused with the pallid Syfy remake) takes a stab at re-inventing itself--and magically pulls off the feat.

    Bishop is just so authentic as a widow finding her way that she deserves an Emmy. Some things, of course, will never change, and fans wouldn’t have it any other way. Sherman-Palladino’s dialogue still races, stuffed with pop culture references.

    Expanse’s look is typical Syfy. The lighting is used to bathe the sets in shadows to hide the lack of money in the budget. The cast and the sheer complexity and depth of story, however, are worthy of premium cable.

    The first new network show of fall is a supernatural adventure that manages to drop a few good scares.

    With scenes of brutality inflicted on slaves and the casual use of the “n” word, Underground can be difficult to watch. But there’s nothing gratuitous about this story. The series is enhanced by contemporary music from the likes of Legend, Kanye West and The Weeknd.

    On Veterans Day, Wartorn is a somber reminder of the price that many pay when they serve their country and a wake-up call to the rest of us about the debt we owe them.

    Smart, slick and sexy.

    The almost 90-minute pilot, directed by Luhrmann, takes stylistic leaps unlike any other series. Without Luhrmann’s hands-on approach, the subsequent five episodes available Friday lose a bit of their pep, but none of their appeal, as the story tunnels down into the lives of these young people.

    In its second season, The Walking Dead remains the most suspenseful show on any TV network.
