  1. Producer Terence Wrong once again delivers fast-paced, narration-free, riveting footage, thanks to video crews who spent four months, unescorted and unhindered, with hospital personnel and patients at crisis points in their lives.
  2. HBO tackles some familiar territory--beauty and the perils of aging, crowsfeet to sagging cheeks--but treats the subject from several new angles thanks to the candor of the older, wiser, still stunning former models.
  3. The second hour is more engrossing than the first, and is easily rich enough to keep us coming back for more.
  4. Set in 1870s London, the tightly focused story of manipulative men, trapped women, an inappropriate, even abusive doctor, plus diary entries containing dreams of escape adds up to an inviting, rather highbrow wallow.
  5. A little bit screechy, a little bit preachy, NBC's The New Normal is nonetheless the best comedy of the season--a season short on innovative comedies.
  6. Purists will miss the trappings of 221B Baker Street. But Elementary is appealing on several counts. Count No. 1 is Miller.
  7. Better than a haunted house story, 666 Park has the potential to seduce audiences with a mix of grandeur, drama and horror and an underlying message on what's truly valuable in life.
  8. What "Nashville" on ABC and Arrow on the CW have in common, is appealing characters in well-plotted stories.
  9. What Nashville on ABC and "Arrow" on the CW have in common, is appealing characters in well-plotted stories.
  10. The Girl, directed by Julian Jarrold, impeccably re-creates the film technology of the time. It also delivers a psychologically astute reading of one of Hollywood's more bizarre entanglements.
  11. As an immersive experience for viewers who wouldn't think of getting this close to war zones, the Witness films are amazing documents.
  12. The goal is not an academic history but a backstage, groupie-eye view. While it's familiar territory for longtime Stones fans, it works.
  13. This is put-your-feet-up, pour-a-brandy television, a tasty import that's good company for a culture undergoing its own sometimes dizzying shifts.
  14. The plotting is intricate, the entire acting ensemble is first-rate.
  15. The evolution of the couple's relationship is as engrossing as the strong-arm spy stuff.
  16. A fun, intriguing new drama...Inspiration is allowed to take all sorts of liberties. Fortunately, the production values of the show are high and no attempts are made to portray aliens on screen, for instance. The director wisely lets us imagine an unexplained power source with a whirl of wind rather than cheap-looking spaceships or funny-looking men with antennae heads. [8 Sept 1993, p.1F]

  17. The direction by Susanna White is subtle, except for a too-frequent visual pun of kaleidoscopic, prism-like refractions to help us see that the world at the moment of Parade’s End is splintering into pieces. Cumberbatch pulls off the stoic-to-shell-shocked expressions of Tietjens, Hall is masterful in a demanding role and Clemens is suited to playing the fresh young thing.
  18. All in all, its assured storytelling and fine performances give a worthy contemporary spin to a classic.
  19. Chronicling Cathy's journey, executive producers Darlene Hunt and Jenny Bicks (a cancer survivor) have so far taken her from denial to rage to bargaining and depression. Onward to acceptance, and to a satisfying conclusion.
  20. Heather Paige Kent is endearing as Lydia DeLucca, a 32-year-old Italian Catholic from New Jersey, who breaks off her engagement to pursue her dream of going to college. [5 Oct 2000, p.E-03]

  21. Will delight those who know a bit about the star-making machinery. It will tickle sports fans and entertain anyone in search of a decent adult comedy. [7 Aug 1996, p.G01]

  22. Not only is it creepy, suspenseful and full of splendid special effects, veteran actors and fresh young faces, but it's laced with big thoughts about environmentalism and the future of the planet.
  23. Rampling brings her primly authoritative presence and a stern look to the task. Her scenes with Hall crackle with tension.
  24. The first three hours leave us thirsting for more.
  25. Outrageous. ... Thanks to inspired editing, it all hangs together. [14 Jul 2003]

  26. Flockhart... is a compelling presence, and the tone of the writing is both fun and thoughtful. [7 Sep 1997]

  27. The Starz 10-hour miniseries is a beautiful, fun period piece populated by amazing talent.
  28. Last Tango in Halifax is an absorbing, sometimes surprising tale of late-in-life romance marked by stunning performances.
  29. It’s a next-gen “Barney Miller,” a smart workplace cop comedy.
  30. Whedon’s trademark humor in the midst of action-adventure (per “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) saves the day as often as the very human, yet very gifted heroes. That protects the fantastical from becoming ridiculous.
