  1. What "Nashville" on ABC and Arrow on the CW have in common, is appealing characters in well-plotted stories.
  2. What Nashville on ABC and "Arrow" on the CW have in common, is appealing characters in well-plotted stories.
  3. 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.
  4. As an immersive experience for viewers who wouldn't think of getting this close to war zones, the Witness films are amazing documents.
  5. The goal is not an academic history but a backstage, groupie-eye view. While it's familiar territory for longtime Stones fans, it works.
  6. 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.
  7. The plotting is intricate, the entire acting ensemble is first-rate.
  8. The evolution of the couple's relationship is as engrossing as the strong-arm spy stuff.
  9. 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]
  10. 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.
  11. All in all, its assured storytelling and fine performances give a worthy contemporary spin to a classic.
  12. 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.
  13. 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]
  14. 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]
  15. 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.
  16. Rampling brings her primly authoritative presence and a stern look to the task. Her scenes with Hall crackle with tension.
  17. The first three hours leave us thirsting for more.
  18. Outrageous. ... Thanks to inspired editing, it all hangs together. [14 Jul 2003]
  19. Flockhart... is a compelling presence, and the tone of the writing is both fun and thoughtful. [7 Sep 1997]
  20. The Starz 10-hour miniseries is a beautiful, fun period piece populated by amazing talent.
  21. Last Tango in Halifax is an absorbing, sometimes surprising tale of late-in-life romance marked by stunning performances.
  22. It’s a next-gen “Barney Miller,” a smart workplace cop comedy.
  23. 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.
  24. His name is above the title and, depending how you feel about James Spader, NBC’s The Blacklist may become your favorite fall show.
  25. If you get past the large leap and buy into the premise, Hostages promises surprising switchbacks and character development ranking among the best of the season.
  26. Beyond profundities laced with humor, the action drama from J.J. Abrams, created by “Fringe’s” J.H. Wyman and starring Karl Urban and Michael Ealy, is a visual feast.
  27. This ambitious undertaking sticks to over-arching themes through the chronology.
  28. What a wonderful, funny, poignant origin tale for fans of “Doctor Who” and newcomers alike: An Adventure in Space and Time, airing Nov. 22, features a terrific performance by David Bradley as William Hartnell, the first Doctor. And a pleasing bit at the very end that will make you gasp.
  29. [The characters] are sympathetic even when unlovable. The dialogue and physical gross-out moments are equally frank. And hilarious.
  30. Clearly, writer-creator Julian Fellowes knows how to keep fans hooked, cleverly playing out credible character traits across time, and knowing the breathless pace of change resonates with our current passage into another modern age.
