    As a viewing experience, Greenleaf is absorbing, hardly pulse-quickening.

    Entourage is clarifying a moral message--drugs will kill you, terrible behavior is terrible, and real friends are forever. It feels like a reassuring final season.

    What's special is something a bit harder to define, notably the chemistry, which Montgomery and Walsh have in abundance. The supporting cast is excellent, too.

    A sharply written, acted and directed start that will hook fans immediately.

    Nothing scary here, but Hollow is fun enough, and promising enough, too.

    Initial impression: It fits. Fans of Chalke will remain fans, and everyone who long ago realized that Elizabeth Perkins was the best thing about "Weeds" will as well.

    Because this is an all-for-one, one-for-all musical act, these groups are tight and have to be. As a result, the six finalists are very good--which largely makes for good TV.

    The pace has slowed, the ride less wild, the story refocused on Ray's "fixer" skills.... McShane and Holmes are welcome additions.

    • 83 Verne Gay
    Genius can be gimmicky, while those eternal questions about time travel and alien life forms are ultimately beyond the power of TV (or sand piles) to answer. But the value of this series lies in the attempt, which is ambitious and edifying.

    A great ensemble cast and characters who grow in complexity, and humanity, episode by episode. If you didn't know them after the second season, you will get to know them well in the third.

    Fun, lively, interesting, but also tends to lose focus at times.

    Nightwatch isn't merely well produced, with clean, striking visuals and a sharp clarity in which even shadows seem to come into focus, but it's also alive with the sounds of a beautiful, vital and (most often in the dead of the night) dangerous city.

    • 83 Verne Gay
    This is almost too clever, funny and ironic for MTV.

    [Rhimes] may still be up to her old tricks, but here they seem fresh and energetic. Best of all, she has a solid young cast that pulls them off well.

    Tragedy is hard, comedy harder, while mixing both together seamlessly is just about impossible week after week. That Louie usually succeeds is a minor miracle. That it doesn't always is inevitable. Thursday's opener, "Potluck," has a funny twist but ends up in a strange, bitter place--even by Louie standards.

    Fans will be happy--maybe.

    It is amusing in the right places.... It's also reasonably smart without being show-offy. Tuesday's launch, meanwhile, is a nice reminder that nothing--at least that good stuff--has changed.

    A loving portrait of a lady--but who probably would be just as happy not to have this or any portrait at all.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    The film's essential weirdness felt real. The TV series' weirdness is more often just comical (or disgusting. One word: Spiders.)
    • 78 Metascore

    After the first season's packed finale, Sunday's episode settles down, takes a breath, and slowwwwws down. That's absolutely an auspicious and necessary development.

    Fans will love every minute--especially Roman's fate.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Not consistently funny, perhaps, but when Best and/or Falco are on screen, the angels sing. Both are remarkable.

    It gets stranger, or--depending on your definition of justice--it gets better.
    • 73 Metascore

    Episodes remains funny.... Mangan and Greig, whose characters remain perfectly, hilariously, beset by that terrible Hollywood contagion: Self-loathing co-mingled with self-preservation.
    • 80 Metascore

    That the whole pilot doesn't collapse into a pile of rubble is due to Rodriguez--or maybe because Jane is so confoundedly odd you want to see what happens next.

    Happy Endings, cast and all, has now officially jelled. The show exists on the same cosmic (and comic) TV plain as "Scrubs," "Arrested Development" and that other late bloomer, "Cougar Town."

    Fascinating primer (that occasionally begs for more details and explanation).

    Apartment 23 was and absolutely remains a huge heaping helping of Acquired Taste.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Good newcomer that can drag, but Hemingway's direction keeps this one on track.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Girls is as Girls always was--sharply observed, intensely self-aware and very funny.
