    This engrossing and unnerving nail-biter is a rare treat: a thriller with a brain and a soul.

    Earl is unashamedly crude, at times downright stupid in its lowlife caricatures, yet it's all so cheerfully endearing that you can't help but be won over by its lowbrow high jinks.

    Darkly comedic and richly entertaining.

    Extras captures the stifling boredom and raging egotism of life behind the camera.

    You might think you can't possibly fit one more crime-solving procedural onto an overcrowded calendar, but consider giving Bones a break.

    It's sexy, funny, hip and heartfelt.

    Truth is there’s nothing off in either Smith’s infectiously enthusiastic spin on the good Doctor or in newly installed executive producer Steven Moffat's confident storytelling.

    Torchwood, a cheeky and often startlingly adult spin-off.

    Mars is an entertaining collision of bare-knuckled police-procedural realism and mind-blowing surrealism.

    Top Chef: Las Vegas gets off to a strong start in its opening round, introducing an impressive number of contestants who are already on top of their game.

    Nerdy sweetness and deep silliness flow effortlessly from Andy Richter.

    Who's a villain and who's a hero here? Can you tell the pawns from the players? All excellent questions as we become absorbed in FX's latest thrill ride.

    The show has found its footing again after a scattershot second season. The dramatic focus is very tight, not to mention topical

    Mirren... hits a dazzling career high.

    Richly plotted and totally absorbing, one of summer TV's best surprises.

    [A] macabre gem.

    It takes a while for this season to build up some steam--by the third episode, though, we're back in full murderous swing, with some gasp-inducing twist--and things stall whenever the focus shifts to subplots involving Dexter's police co-workers. But whenever Dexter is center stage, Dexter remains one of TV's most gripping dark entertainments.

    It is intensely serious, and seriously well done.

    It's refreshing to watch an interview in which the guest needn't worry about sharing the spotlight.

    I watched with an escalating sense of dread, but still was unprepared for the powerful twists along the way.

    Primeval mixes elements of "Jurassic Park” and "Stargate," rarely taking itself seriously while also warning of the consequences of not confronting these threats to mankind.

    Adorably quirky and emotionally surprising, Eli Stone is a legal drama the same way Pushing Daisies (how I miss it) is a mere whodunit.

    Law revels in reckless, rude antiheroics. But Margulies also excels in giving her character emotional depth, with a tragic backstory and a rocky personal life involving a long-suffering husband (Aidan Quinn) and a hot private eye (James McCaffrey) on the side.

    This show lives up to its franchise's reputation for suspenseful action.

    Tell Me You Love Me is an engrossing, searing, sometimes squirm-inducing study of intimacy, told with a fly-on-the-bedroom-wall realism that is both clinical and wrenching. Voyeurism has rarely felt so unnerving yet ultimately rewarding.

    Chuck is a terrifically appealing, super-slick mix of comedy, action and (often thwarted) romance.
