    It's a much more impressive spectacle than ABC's mindlessly entertaining Empire.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    This is all well done, and it's a great-looking production, but the weight of the drama keeps tugging toward a side plot about Braugher's 14-year-old stepdaughter. [10 Apr 2006, p.35]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    The interplay of the sexes has been used to better effect on other action vehicles--including FX's animated Archer--but the actresses lighten the tone, adding zip to a show that thrives on speed. [29 Nov 2010. p.42]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Tom Gliatto
    Despite its cheap shock effects, the show is indulgently ridiculous. [[28 Oct 2013, p.41]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    The anecdotes slam into each other with a punch-drunk indifference--but director Spike Lee's style is a series of swift jabs. [18 Nov 2013, p.47]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    This new, fourth season isn't bad but it's a very different beast from the original, and it's not nearly as funny.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Gliatto
    The show... is partly improvised, a stunt used to richer effect on ABC's upcoming Sons & Daughters. [6 Mar 2006, p.41]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Gliatto
    Predictably awesome. [27 May 2013, p.42]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    The show doesn't have the sinister intelligence of ABC's short-lived Invasion, but it's good family entertainment. [27 Jun 2011, p.45]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    The jokes hop all over the place but the show, like Chloe, is refreshingly wild. [16 Apr 2012, p.49]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Tom Gliatto
    [It] remains a nervily ambiguous concept. [18 Jun 2007, p.37]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    In its second season, Patricia Heaton's family sitcom seems to have found its natural resting point.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Tom Gliatto
    This could all pay off spectacularly. [8 Jul 2013, p.36]
    • 70 Metascore

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine is fine as it is. Tell your DVR to book it. [9 Dec 2013, p.43]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    History's first scripted series is a headlong tumble into an irresistible and surprisingly neglected genre. [18 Mar 2013, p.41]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    This is a carefully assembled, emotionally attuned drama about obese teens stuck in a summer weight-loss camp.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    None of these results will rock a viewer's world, but it's unexpectedly satisfying to see stars in a reality project that's more relatable than ballroom dancing or a temporary work detail for Donald Trump.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    Bloods isn't groundbreaking, but there are hints of a deeper scandal woven into the solid plot. Worth checking out. [25 Oct 2010, p.39]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    The talent is good, and on the long road to announcing a top 16, the show expertly milking every drop of pathos. [24 Oct 2011, p.39]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    This blah drama about kids living in an LA apartment complex while hustling for big breaks is a Canadian import. [7 May 2012, p.46]

    Queen delivers the basic goods (intrigue, sex) , but the only vivid character is Margaret Beaufort, mom of the future Henry VII. She's played by Amanda Hale with startling neuritic fervor. [12 Aug 2013]

    It's more like Seinfeld reconceived for the slacker sensibility of a director like Kevin Smith or Richard Linklater. And that's what's wrong with the show: It's hard to shake the feeling that it's just someone's project.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    The show could be compelling, especially if the cast pulls off two decades' worth of aging. [12 Sep 2005, p.46]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    I wish the show had a little more verisimilitude--the peasants' homes look cheap, not poor--but it's zippy mindless fun. [5 Mar 2007, p.37]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    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]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    Somehow the premiere hour fills in all this background without getting lost and--more importantly--with sincerity and sensitivity. [10 Jun 2013, p.50]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    An odd but involving concept--Raging Birds. [14 Mar 2011, p.42]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    The show, despite good stunt work, is clunkily overfamiliar. [1 Feb 2010, p.37]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    This TLC series has hit a cultural nerve, partly because it offers practical, price-cutting tips in an era in which people are jittery about inflation. Also because it's bonkers. [26 May 2011, p.46]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    The show is a bit of a junk heap--Fringe, Mission:Impossible and Death Becomes Her are in the pile--but it's a real adventure. [11 Jul 2011, p.34]
