    The best thing from Season 1 remains the same: Mary-Louise Parker. [21 Aug 2006, p.37]

    It's bright and obvious as a cartoon yet written with a clean, precise patter of jokes. It's also very well cast. [12 Dec 2011, p.45]

    In Plain Sight keeps the tone light, but star Mary McCormack still has the grim bemusement of a noir heroine. [9 May 2011, p.40]

    The show is sloppy, vulgar fun, even if it's hard to detect much likability under the layers of lacquer. [9 May 2011, p.43]

    The pilot establishes an eerie claustrophobic dread, and well-budgeted special effects add intensity. [1 Jul 2013, p.35]

    The Inbetweeners is a companion to the network's hit Awkward. And equally funny. [27 Aug 2012, p.48]

    Here we have the spirit and courage of the settlers, only without the time to settle. It's CBS after all, not Conestoga. [9 May 2011, p.39]

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

    Gregg has a deadpan ease that makes the engine purr. And his team is good-looking and stamped with just enough personality and humor: Without killing the fun, they ground the show. [14 Oct 2013, p.43]

    Season 3 will bring on two new wives, but the show will probably always belong to NeNe Leakes. [11 Oct 2010, p.38]

    This is all good, capering, costume-ball fun, even if Mary's life was dismal. My chief complaint is that pretty Adelaide Kane, as Mary, lacks any spirit or presence. [21 Oct 2013, p.50]

    The girls, who keep breathlessly repeating the phrase "high fashion" as if it were a mantra, nonetheless behave as they always do, which is most of the fun. [13 Sep 2010, p.48]

    This is Amazing Race of the damned, with something of the open-ended, Pandora's-box mystery of Lost, and it has the potential for out-there adventure. [23 Apr 2007, p.37]

    This air of finality throws the many small, fine details of Parker's performance, the main reason for the show's existence, into sharp relief. [13 Aug 2012, p.42]

    This FOX version of a family sitcom isn't as irreverent or formula-free as it thinks--ABC's "The Middle" is actually edgier--but it scores points for never resorting to mere cuteness and for throwing in a bizarre sight gag about frozen squirrels.

    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.
