    It's homage of the highest form, but comedy of the highest form, too. Cos quite obviously is far from finished.

    Marry Me is the rarest of commercial TV sitcoms in that it's actually funny, has two standout leads and a superb supporting cast (especially Meadows and Bucatinsky).

    This teacher can be loquacious--oh yeah--but he's got a big heart, too. Danza, Northeast and A&E deserve credit for this series.

    Falco, Eve Best (Ellie O'Hara) and Anna Deavere Smith (Gloria Akalitus) are flawless, and... very amusing.

    Of course there are dozens of loose ends in need of tying, but you do get the sense that some will actually get tied, and in a satisfying way.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The Gus Vant Sant-directed pilot of what is easily the most important project in Starz history pulses with the sort of corruption that absolute power sires.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Grim, but a chance to see two magnificent actors at the peak of their powers.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    This remains a superior TV drama.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Based on most of the first five episodes sent out for review, Boardwalk Empire easily establishes its claim as one of the three or four best dramas on TV.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    A winner and best of all, fun.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    If you loved last season, there's nothing so far to indicate you won't like the second just as much.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The Red Road demands patience, but from what I've seen, it strongly suggests that will be rewarded.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The Slap is a chance, and a worthy one, too.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    A particularly fine new FX drama marred only by a tepid pace in the pilot. But pace and story pick up in subsequent episodes.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    This is far more than a generous compilation but a two-hour fast-cut that attempts to reassemble a fractured mind from its own filings.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Unforgettable was on no one's list as one of the "buzzier" fall pilots, but that doesn't mean it's not one of the better ones. It is.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Crisis ultimately gets its priorities straight by giving viewers a reason to care--about the characters, outcome and mystery.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Much grimmer, grayer and (gasp) dowdier. Still mostly wonderful.
    • 80 Metascore

    I mostly loved Game of Thrones, but occasionally grew a little weary of it as well. (And just to answer the obvious question, this is not a small-screen "Lord of the Rings.")

    Can a bad person become a good president? The answer may be self-evident--or maybe not. Nevertheless, therein lies a compelling new season. We may still have a lot more to learn about Frank Underwood after all.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    A gorgeous production, though the story sometimes keeps it on the tarmac.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Still smart, still good, still fun, Human Target remains one of TV's best comic books.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Community can be fresh, funny, smart and extremely aware of its own cleverness; it also can be terrifically odd--odd good, or odd bad, or sometimes odd-good-bad-strange all at once.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Excellent--and chilling.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Still excellent, still hard to love.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Amid all those speeches, there's beauty, passion, heart and brains in The Newsroom. There's also humor, even more than ever in Sunday's opener.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Good, crackling start that--as the old saying goes--changes everything and may even point to the end.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Yup, the story can be downbeat, the pace at times languid. But this is a show with a brain and a heart.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Still defiantly Community, still good and still uninterested in adding new viewers.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The cast succeeds, and in the end, so does Heart.
