    The scenes in which the older and younger versions interact, with Hamm counseling and cajoling the panicked and miserable Radcliffe as a Ghost of Torment to Come, crackle with a surreal bite.... Not for the squeamish, Notebook is worth bookmarking if you've an adventurous streak.

    He [David Walton] and About a Boy are at its best in those disarming moments when Will lets down his guard and faces his grown-up responsibilities to teach Marcus how to enjoy the "total exuberance" of boyhood.

    The new setting and a fresh, swank look help restore energy and a sense of freakish fun to what had become a morose melodrama.

    The high concept of this buddy mystery-comedy is as familiar as it is inviting.

    Its third macabre season magnifies every succulent image and sound to its creepiest potential. [1 Jun 2015, p.18]

    The spirit of John Hughes lives on in this rowdy ensemble of insecure spazzes and delightfully fresh mean girls (yes, we're talking about you, Sadie).

    • 80 Matt Roush
    This is one of those potboilers where the good guys (Madfadyen as a pious friar, Sewell as a master builder) are impossibly noble, suffering in a lawless time through the murderous machinations of the endlessly scheming villains (most notably McShane hamming it up as a cunningly ambitious church official).

    If Around the World doesn't exactly reinvent the genre, it still manages to refine the familiar bits with sumptuous location shooting and a sense of adventure.

    BBC America delivers a satirical treat in the uncannily topical Twenty Twelve.

    It would all be terribly sad it if it weren't so incredibly funny.

    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.

    It's an awfully good [documentary].

    Well, Talking Funny is certainly addictive.

    A searing, sizzlingly well acted docudrama.

    Manhunt goes beyond the actual raid to explore the CIA's culture of intelligence gathering, including the internal debates on Bush-era "enhanced interrogation techniques." Even though we all know how it turns out, this is as gripping an account as you're likely to find.

    [A] macabre gem.

    I find I’m even more enthralled by Showtime’s costume melodrama The Tudors than I was a year ago.

    As fables go, Bountiful is fairly uneventful yet unexpectedly affecting, thanks to Tyson's unsparing honesty.

    This show is shocking in all the right ways. It's monstrously entertaining.

    Crude in execution, harsh by design, South Park is deliciously deranged. Don't bite unless you have a taste for the tasteless. [13 Aug 1997]

    You'd never accuse Suburgatory of subtlety, but it's a fun place to visit, even if you'd never want to live there. It's also a hoot.

    Top Chef is the best-produced of TV's many cooking competitions (with Emmy nominations to attest to that fact), and the D.C. edition is already capital entertainment.

    Even if the bitch leaves you cold, something happening in and around Apartment 23 ought to make you laugh.
