    As with his earlier shows, "Hopkins 24/7" (2000) and "Hopkins" (2008), Wrong has structured these stories masterfully. Nothing seems wasted, nothing is superfluous. As a result, the hugely important work these people do is honored in every shot.

    Lotsa fast banter and stylish direction will make some viewers dimly recall--as they are doubtlessly meant to--William Powell and Myrna Loy's late, great "Thin Man" movie series.

    It was last year, and remains so this year--one of TV's very best.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    What's here is pitch-perfect - the fear, loss, emotional devastation and, peculiar to this disease, silence.

    Sunday is a blast. Heads will roll, and roll well. The gore quotient is through the roof. And finally this guarantee--there is one, maybe even two, spots where you will yell out at the screen, "Oh, my God, that just didn't happen." Yes, the new season is that good.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Fascinating and deeply troubling.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The fuss is justified. Sunday's return of the Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss-created series is a triumphant one, and should easily establish Sherlock among TV's finest series.

    L.D. is back, and - based on viewing the first three episodes - his genius remains intact. [7 Sep 2007]

    The hype is justified. Nashville's terrific.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This show doesn't feel even remotely played out.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Solid start to what could--and maybe should--be a future CW franchise.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    TV's best (but do your homework before diving in).
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Funny, smart, entertaining, excellent acting and writing. What's not to like?
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    One episode in, "Glee 2.0"--otherwise known as the fourth season--looks to be a winner.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Anyone who enters this fantastic and beautifully realized play-scape--which remains ever so slightly ghoulish--will stick around. This is a winner.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    There's pleasure in every frame here--from terrific new cast additions (Molly Parker, David Glennon) to richer D.C. subplots. It all works, and it is all addictive.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    There are three excellent reasons--Milch, Mann and Hoffman--why your faith will be rewarded.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    It's smartly written; clinically interesting (Why is Tara this way?), and maybe even a metaphor for the challenges all women face.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    An enthralling film.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Gorgeously acted, written, paced, structured and conceived, "Damages" remains one of the best shows on TV--and maybe the most enjoyably addictive.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This remains one of the best shows on TV, and (as usual) not for all tastes.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The writers have great ears for "real" dialogue, and, in fact, not a single line here feels like a dead ball. The characters, too, arrive fully formed and believable. First impressions are absolutely vital in TV, and The Middle makes an excellent one.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    The horror is carefully and strategically placed; one mustn't have too much of a good thing, after all.... So settle in. You will be grossed out.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Lavisly illustrated with archival footage, much of it rare, The March makes it almost easy to forget that words--not to mention the one man who said them--were the real stars that day.... Excellent, exhaustive.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    In the third season, the song remains the same. Biblical themes of fathers and sons, fathers and daughters, honor and dishonor, Cain and Abel are all baked under that pitiless California sun. Brace yourselves.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Who else but Larry David could have imagined that a "Curb" largely without the glorious Cheryl Hines could conceivably be funnier? Or that her absence might work as a comedic plot foil for one of its major story arcs? He did, and that's genius.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    This is TV's best comedy. And there's nothing in the first two episodes that would suggest otherwise.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Verne Gay
    Stunning, beautiful, hypnotic, engrossing, spectacular... That oughta do it here as well, except Frozen Planet unexpectedly adds another word: Unprecedented.

    How could you possibly go wrong with these two? You couldn't.

    Here's to a long and fruitful run in the new home. Tuesday night proves exactly why Southland deserves one.
