    Mad Men has both the greatness of execution and inscrutability of artistic intent, and it won't be until the show actually ends that I'll know which one won out. [21 Apr 2014, p.41]

    Edie Falco makes the stakes scarily real. [21 Apr 2014, p.43]

    All in all, this looks like one of the brightest new shows of the season.

    There are a few weak jokes, but in its substance, look (fly fashions), and sound, this could be a real trendsetter.

    Peta Wilson, an Australian actress with the harsh blonde hair, snub nose and oversize, depthless blue eyes of your average mass-produced doll, makes a sexy, amusing Nikita.

    The show needs work-—why all the breast jokes?-—but [Lithgow and Curtin] don't.

    The badinage with his wife plays nice and easy, like Home Improvement, while that with his parents and brother across the street has more of a Seinfeldian silliness.

    Visually... Daria is misconceived.

    [It] looks to be a season of solid suspense. [30 Jan 2006, p.37]

    This is probably not a clinically accurate portrayal of an OCD sufferer, but Shalhoub's gentle earnestness keeps it from being gimmicky.

    It's more fun than most hidden-camera shows: Kutcher keeps his in-your-face energy from boiling over into obnoxious-ness.

    It's a much more impressive spectacle than ABC's mindlessly entertaining Empire.

    The second half builds steadily and surely toward a potential meet-and-greet with the apocalypse. [12 Dec 2005, p.39]
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    The quickened pulse is a plus: The violence registers as sharp, stinging slaps. [11 Dec 2006, p.41]

    The best thing from Season 1 remains the same: Mary-Louise Parker. [21 Aug 2006, p.37]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    A diverting, silly potboiler, a bold cartoon with none of the staffers' anxious beetle scuttling that gives NBC's venerable The West Wing a sense of verisimilitude. [3 Oct 2005, p.39]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    Emily Deschanel is well cast as Brennan--she has the right sort of drained, remote presence, as if still working off last night's sleeping pill--and she's also well cast against David Boreanaz. [19 Sep 2005, p.45]

    The banter is warm and fast and easy, and the sisters' personality types balance out well. [17 Oct 2005, p.39]

    Ghost Whisperer can be surprisingly moving. [24 Oct 2005, p.41]
    • 42 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    It's not clear how seriously Patinkin takes the whole thing--it's the same actorly mystery that makes David Caruso's whispery bitterness such a kick on CSI: Miami. [31 Oct 2005, p.39]
    • 31 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    Hot Properties has a loose, engaging silliness. [31 Oct 2005, p.39]

    It's always good to see dancing that's dancing and not a montage of repositioned limbs.

    Horror isn't my thing, but this is pretty good. [7 Nov 2005, p.41]

    Unlike Daily anchorman Jon Stewart, he's not only ridiculing the headlines but mocking himself. This is closer to acting than comedy, and it may be tougher. But Stephen Colbert is a great American and deserves our support. And suppore. [7 Nov 2005, p.41]

    It gets an unexpected freshness from a young cast. [5 Mar 2007, p.37]
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    Just about perfect in its way--always fun, well-paced--and much, much better than UPN's failed models drama South Beach. [1 May 2006, p.39]
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    The Class doesn't necessarily generate more laughs than other sitcoms, but it has more charm--like a kinder, gentler How I Met Your Mother--and that's incentive enough to stick with it. [16 Oct 2006, p.39]

    Woods is every bit as entertaining as he strives to be. [25 Sep 2006, p.43]

    The pyrotechnics involved in the opening heist are good, and the cast is a dream. [25 Sep 2006, p.43]
    • 73 Metascore

    This show has a light, charming sense of the ridiculous. [19 Mar 2007, p.39]
