    She’s a terrific and effortlessly funny actress who establishes vivid characters with vivid lives. But Sam Fox obviously required a bigger reach, and Adlon accomplishes that here.

    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.

    What worked especially well last season also gets better in the second.

    Excellent--and chilling.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Still excellent, still hard to love.

    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.

    Mad Men, as ever, remains a solid and beautifully produced TV program. Best of all, this episode promises a compelling third season. Fans will find much to savor.

    Pleasurable, amusing, well conceived and written, though perhaps just a little shy on character development (New York excepted). Give this one time - these guys feel like they're worth getting to know, and the show as well.

    Monday Mornings is Kelleyesque in all the best and admittedly worst--melodramatic, manipulative, shocking--ways. But it's also intelligent, particularly well-written and acted, and above all interested in matters other than what's directly mounted on the screen before your eyes, most notably ethics, human nature and human fallibility.

    The results so far are very (very) funny.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Parks and Rec remains funny, sharp and inventive.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    All the Way gets a couple of electrifying performances that catalyze the drama--not to mention the forward momentum of history. They’re brief, but they do the job. ... Magnificent, often stirring performance by Cranston that no one else comes close to matching.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    This show was always best when handling the little things that aim to capture life, and often do.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    They honor the job without trivializing it, or turning it into melodramatic entertainment pap for the masses.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Extremely funny and extremely raunchy (consider yourself warned), but Dunham's a major talent.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Foremost, getting Brody off-screen turns out to be an inspired move. In his absence, there's a new world order, or disorder, with a lot of people left to assemble the pieces, including Saul, Carrie, and most of all, Dana.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Smart new cop show that takes time to build, but will reward patience.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Still funny and still not for everyone. Louie remains very much a taste that you either acquire--or don't.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    A bit melodramatic, a bit manipulative, Touch is still one of the best pilots of the 2011-12 season to date.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    No relaxing allowed with Boss. Sorry about that, and sorry for this series, which remains smart, absorbing and particularly well done.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    Smart newcomer with a pair of leads that turns The Americans into a likely winner.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    It's wonderful stuff, and we all seem to be on a voyage of discovery.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Verne Gay
    The best unscripted show on commercial television this season, which you may correctly point out is faint praise; but in this case, it's not.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Verne Gay
    Tonight's episode is superb, and barrels--relentlessly--toward the answers.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Verne Gay
    It's smartly acted, well written, funny, expertly directed and hugely entertaining. And utterly, totally, profoundly devoid of pretension.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Verne Gay
    Besides the fine acting, writing and an attention to period detail that borders on the obsessive, what makes this show so ambiguous and pleasantly iridescent is narrative tension
