  1. The story of the plague has been told before, and it will and should continue to find new life. But The Normal Heart tells it with admirable honesty and plenty of emotion.
  2. The Knick is an astonishing new medical drama that has the potential to be one of the year’s best and most talked-about shows, as well as a breakthrough into TV series excellence for its star, Clive Owen, and its director and executive producer, Steven Soderbergh.
  3. After the forced opening minutes, it's the best multi-cam-com of the season.
  4. The tone tips awkwardly between crude and romantic, and a little of Azaria goes a long way. But I'm game for episode 2.
  5. This is a classic guilty pleasure, with campy twists and a fabulously diva-esque performance by Stowe.
  6. As a weekly series, the effects need to remain impressive and the writers need to avoid falling into "Lost" and "Walking Dead" band-of-survivors rehash.
