    Gilmore Girls is a genuine gem in the making, a family-friendly hour burdened by neither trite cliche nor precocious pablum. It is as fresh and real as "Dawson's Creek" is stale and contrived. In the process, it re-energizes the 8 o'clock hour with a bracing burst of heart. [5 Oct 2000]

    The first four installments supplied for review have moments of artsy overindulgence, to be sure, but largely remain true to the show's roots in darkness and absurdity while carving out fresh story arcs that are as compelling as any the writers have ever crafted. It's like peering at a series of train wrecks as rendered by da Vinci.

    The show gets back to where it belongs: under Larry's expansive roof and inside his incessantly neurotic, disgracefully tactless and unerringly heartless skin.

    It's simply a great idea that, if early indications are accurate, could stand as a horror classic for a television genre that's been inconsistent at best over the years.

    Brilliantly original but wise and low-key.

    Forget everything I ever wrote about "Mad Men." This is the best drama series on television.

    Think of "The Office," "Larry Sanders," "Spin City" and "Yes Minister" rolled into one delirious stew.

    A rip-roaring thriller... that pulls off the rare trick of being both massively intelligent and unbearably intense.

    This mini holds you in its thrall from beginning to end, and the twists along the way are seemingly endless. A riveting ride, indeed.

    Far from devolving into soapy Madison Avenue pablum, Mad Men is painstakingly building its way to genuine greatness.

    Breaking Bad is indeed so flat-out superb it appears to be operating at a different level than just about everybody else save AMC's own "Mad Men" and maybe a couple of shows over at FX.

    Bolstered by superb acting and first-rate direction and cinematography, Kill delivers the goods in ways both unexpected and rewarding.
