    Legit walks the tightrope between the dark and the heartfelt as well as anything on TV.

    Nikita is probably The CW’s most purely entertaining show at the moment, and it brazenly promises to be its best self now that it’s coming into the home stretch, wrapping up its loose ends with what amounts to a concluding, six-episode miniseries.

    Season four of Eastbound & Down looks more promising than season three.

    As has often been the case with torn-from-yesterday’s-headlines TV movies, the film is most worth sitting through for some of the performances.

    The new Under The Gunn--a Project Runway imitation with Gunn in the head judge’s chair--merely has the feel of lifeboats being lowered.

    If everything about Episodes were as peppy and primed to rock as LeBlanc, the show would be a marvel. Mostly, though, it’s turned out to be a fairly tired satire of Hollywood, one that’s stayed yoked to its dubious premise.

    His TV show has none of the ambitious reach of his best podcasts, and it keeps pretending to be edgier than it is.

    Those seeking entertainment would be better off watching the movie, which will give them a rousing American story in half the time.

    Spader is fun to watch in a shallow, ornamental way, but he’d be worth caring about if there were some limits to his character’s abilities. Instead, he’s not just brilliant, but also practically unbound by the laws of time and space.

    It’s just a period horror story starring Wednesday Addams as the high-strung monster from the playground jumping-rope rhyme, with costumes and furnishings (and a general lack of extras) that suggest a high-school play.

    The problem is, Banshee is turning into just another show about a lawman with a colorful past that may not do everything by the book, but--he gets results!

    The only times Dancing On The Edge doesn’t move like molasses are during the brief moments of excitement or pleasure.

    Ja’mie is so drawn-out and lifeless that the mind wanders, wondering if there might be something ugly about the popularity of this character.

    It smells like something that’s been tested in focus groups to within an inch of its life.

    An episode of The Office or Extras would be wasted on Derek; he’s completely happy when he’s watching an online video of little piggies and bunnies doing cute things. Derek has all the creative ambition of one of those videos, and Gervais has cast himself as the cutest bunny.

    Louisiana no longer celebrates the entertaining crookedness of its politicians. By trying to build a reality show on the dead ground of a discredited mythology, A&E has combined the worst of both worlds.
