    Maybe this episode really is about repression, erotica and split personalities. Or maybe it's just a good excuse for the show to shake the dust out, ditch the inferno of summertime New York and wander amid the glories of Paris while exploring the discreet bourgeois charms of Blair and Serena. Either way, it's a lot of fun.

    [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.

    The cast is phenomenal, the writing inventive and genuinely funny, and you could pick just about any character--Andy or Ann, or Ron or Tom (Aziz Ansari) and almost mistake them for the show lead instead of Poehler. But still not quite in the same league as the show that precedes or the one that follows.

    One little gripe---Pioneers needed to give a tip of the space helmet to some '50s pioneers, such as "Captain Video" and "Flash Gordon." Otherwise, it's all pleasure.

    • 83 Verne Gay
    Labine and Greer completely hijack the show, and almost threaten to turn Biggs (you'll remember him from "American Pie") and Chalke ("Scrubs." "Roseanne") into props. A well-made and skillfully executed sitcom. Oh--almost forgot--fun, too.

    A not-bad start that promises to take Dex (and Dexter) in a slightly new and fresh direction.

    Fair warning, dear reader: Wilfred is intensely vulgar, and only guys around the age of 28 whose ears, and sensibilities, are covered with scar tissue will find nothing offensive. Otherwise, it's very funny.

    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 best about Time is its ambition; it glows with a near-theatrical shine, challenging viewers to think about TV drama as something other than boilerplate.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    A gritty, almost plausible winner, and distant reflection of Stephen Spielberg's "Minority Report."
    • 66 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    The well-written pilot has a couple of brazenly vulgar sight gags, but nothing that will shock "Two and a Half Men" fans.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Cox remains a very engaging lead, and her supporting cast is rock solid.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Solid cast, intriguing premise, and--best of all--the Old West. Should easily be another winner for AMC.

    • 83 Verne Gay
    It was a dark and stormy night--and a weird, fun, trippy one, too.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Good start to the third season, and from what I sampled, it builds from there.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Still very high quality, and still a tiny bit dull.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Raunchy and at times genuinely funny, Apartment 23 is jam-packed with promise--and inconsistencies.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    The intrigue continues and The Borgias remains one of TV's more reliable potboilers.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Still fun, but the innocent first moments last season were better.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    A sober, intelligent, placidly paced drama as only the Canadians can make.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    More of a continuation than a "remake," this one looks to be a winner.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Some wild twists, but you've seen a variation before on one of them. Nevertheless, the Patty Hewes story is almost over, and in Close's hands, it's still compulsively watchable.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    The cast is good, even excellent. But Perry's the one who sells Go On.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    A sharply written, acted and directed start that will hook fans immediately.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    [A] stylish Gothic thriller that almost gives away a little too much Sunday. Otherwise, thumbs up.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Brush aside the hyperactivity and hard sell, and you're left with a winner.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Chicago Fire definitely has familiarity going for it and familiarity going against it as well.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Fans will be pleased, though they shouldn't be too surprised by the major plot development Sunday--it's obvious by half.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    You have plain old smashmouth elemental TV story devices--good guys, bad guys, evil corporations, a family unit, and a headlong rush toward the Truth, whatever that may be. Plus this special bonus: Intimations of Jack Bauer.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Outrageous, eccentric, funny, campy--and too creepy for small kids.
