    In season 2 this fluffy spy caper about gorgeous CIA operative Annie Walker is starting to deliver on the seductive fun promised by Piper Perabo's sly, flirtatious smile in the opening credits. [25 Jul 2011, p.40]

    A revenge farce that takes such perplexingly arbitrary turns that it finally sits down like a confused Labrador and refuses to budge. [12 Aug 2013]

    Challenging but engrossing.
    • 69 Metascore

    This parody of bad vintage miniseries is asinine--it's supposed to be--and from time to time hilarious. [13 Jan 2014, p.49]
    • 69 Metascore

    NBC's best new drama since forever. [15 Apr 2013]

    This is an epic portrait of a woman who's monumentally single-minded yet uncomprehending, and watching her rise and fall inspires a sick awe. [4 Apr 2011, p.50]

    It's very easy to resist a show shaped around a joke so sniggeringly juvenile. ... After a while, though, my inner sniggler shoved its way past my adult superego and started to laugh, sometimes a lot.

    What hasn't changed and what matters, is Mireille Enos's sodden, unshakable integrity as a detective who could outlast a pack of bloodhounds. [10 Jun 2013, p.48]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    A sitcom that veers uncomfortably between charmingly cute and cloyingly sarcastic. [1 Oct 2012, p.38]

    An old-fashioned sitcom.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Gliatto
    If anything, it moves so tentatively through the baffling investigation and trial that Hayden Panettiere seems to play a dozen Amandas: cheerful, furtive, erratic--and at times literally clueless. [28 Feb 2011, p.40]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    The show is a quietly intriguing, informative study of assimilation, identity and community. [21 Nov 2011, p.40]

    • 67 Tom Gliatto
    This hour-long show puts the city's locations to stylish use, and the first episode careens along with slam-bang action, but the whole concept feels-closer to slapdash.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    As in season 1, the acting is rich and lusty, with no costume-drama fustiness. [15 Jan 2007, p.33]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    In the premiere of this likably preposterous new show, [Chloe] learns that these changes are embedded in her DNA and can be traced back millennia. [20 Jun 2011, p.58]

    [A] sure-footed legal drama. [2 Sep 2013]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Gliatto
    It's very well-done, but the opener doesn't resolve a viewer's doubts. [9 Apr 2012, p.42]
    • 31 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    It's always good to see dancing that's dancing and not a montage of repositioned limbs.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    The humor has a light, convivial burble. [26 Mar 2012, p.45]

    Chef remains the model for cook-off competitions, balancing casual insight into culinary art with psychological snapshots of the aspiring chefs. This recipe can't be improved on.

    The only good thing is Anita Barone. [19 Sep 2005, p.48]

    One of the fall's best new dramas. [26 Nov 2012, p.48]
    • 44 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    The show has a sheen that's distinctive from Law [& Order]--young, exfoliated skin reflects light better from waxed court floors--and promises to be more fun than In Justice. [6 Mar 2006, p.41]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    The show is fueled with so much soap-operatic hot air that it takes off. [26 Sep 2011, p.54]
