    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.

    Parks and Rec remains funny, sharp and inventive.

    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.

    There’s some temporizing in the first couple of episodes, but not enough to subvert what this third season so clearly is--another winner.

    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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The usual C.K. show--fresh, funny, smart, bleak, offensive, entertaining--with one minor demerit, for an overlong finish.

    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.

    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.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 91 Verne Gay
    The fifth-season opener efficiently brooms away that creaky storyline, and even pivots on an effective twist that reinforces one more “HoC” theme: Frank will be Frank.

    A bit melodramatic, a bit manipulative, Touch is still one of the best pilots of the 2011-12 season to date.

    No relaxing allowed with Boss. Sorry about that, and sorry for this series, which remains smart, absorbing and particularly well done.

    With his 2000 show, HBO’s “Killing Them Softly,” as another baseline for the best of Chappelle’s TV standup, this one’s right up there, too--not quite its equal, but close.

    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

    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
    • 55 Metascore

    This version is a triumph.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    [A] stylish Gothic thriller that almost gives away a little too much Sunday. Otherwise, thumbs up.
    • 65 Metascore

    The same strut and swagger is here, except Ballers feels smarter and more clear-eyed about the dangers of this culture, in ways "Entourage" never did.

    Pretty much all a fan (or critic) could ask of a cult series remake is this: Does the newbie measure up? Based on all available evidence--the 42-minute premiere--the answer is yes.

    You've probably already heard Executioner is slow to get into. That's true. But (I think) the setup works, and (also think) it promises a satisfying series.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Smart, intriguing thriller, but the opener is slightly overheated.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Verne Gay
    Quiet, intelligent, worth checking out.
