    Skies fans should be pleased.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Another Discovery/BBC beauty, but short on answering obvious questions.

    There's some very funny stuff here, but the serious question before NBC is this: How long can it stretch the joke before viewers go stark raving mad?
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    What's new here? Nothing, really. Jane is likable, Adams is, too, and so--believe it or not--is Hung. That's another problem. Hung needed to be scabrously funny. Instead, it's just middlebrow amusing.

    Admirers of the novel probably will be pleased. Average viewers who never read the novel (or any historic fiction) will be either confused or bored--possibly both.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A competently made soap with some good actors and nicely staged musical numbers.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Grimm has real promise if NBC has real patience.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    At least in the first three episodes provided for review, what the Kesslers and Zelman don't seem to quite realize is how much of a narcotic this setting actually turns out to be. The story is also often languid to the point of stationary.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    It's almost a shrug of an opener, a bit diffident, a bit unfocused (not unlike Brett, in his less lucid moments). But Togetherness does gets better, and funnier.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Liv is more goth than zomb, more punk than spunk. She's also as appealing as anyone who eats human brains for a living could possibly be. Her supporting cast is good, too.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Richly documented, but tends to become long-winded--or just plain winded--by the end.

    • 75 Verne Gay
    The story has been told many times before, and is told competently--if not always with dazzling or unexpected insight--again Wednesday.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A very good-looking pilot. That leaves Gustin, which is where nagging doubts crop up.... Gustin's Allen is blue of eye and clear of conscience. Sweet and gentle, he's immensely likable but not particularly intriguing, unlike Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen or even Tom Welling's Clark Kent.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Noisy, silly, occasionally obnoxious, sporadically funny and ultimately sweet.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Old-fashioned and a bit placid, but Stults and Duncan save the day, and maybe the series.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    An oddity with additional oddness in the form of Malkovich. But as summer diversions go, this looks to be a good one.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Mr. Dynamite instead works best as musical biography, only fitfully as a comprehensive one.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Extremely raunchy, and often quite funny.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    What a hoot. What a ridiculous, soap-operatic cutup of a series. But if you can stop giggling long enough, as I managed to--quite a feat, let me tell you--Harper's Island is also hugely enjoyable.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    It's an upbeat, glass-half-full hour with some tough love from Tony, who also dispenses sound couples therapy advice. But the hour also feels facile, and rushed.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Lots of eye candy, mystery, intrigue, questions, and superlative production values. But who's ready to jump back in this pool again?
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    This doesn't pretend to be a deep show, but it's a pleasant diversion with a good cast, and really good (read: expensive) production values.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    While a bit deliberately paced, a good start, with (as always) an excellent guest-star roster.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Rest easy. Scrubs is just fine (with all cast members, except Jenkins, back), though the opening episode is superior to the follow-up.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    This remains an intelligent, well-made drama that wants to get most of the history right, or at least not adulterate it too much.... But, alas, same virtues, same flaws.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Information tumbles off the screen and often flat onto the floor. Too bad, because much of what's here is very funny, if occasionally cruel.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Absent the overworked conceit of actors glancing at the camera to register annoyance or irony, this has turned into just another well-produced cop show with some excellent actors, like Imperioli or James McDaniel, who plays Det. Jesse Long and played Lt. Arthur Fancy on "NYPD Blue."
    • tbd Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Competent soap, and the new season is frothier than ever.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Yes, indeed, a love letter this is, but 41 is better than rank puffery because it also takes the full measure of Bush.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A not-bad techno-thriller that could go interesting places.
