  1. An engaging work of strong storytelling.
  2. 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.
  3. For those of us who thrilled to “The Jewel in the Crown,” the latest PBS “Masterpiece” saga, Indian Summers, will scratch the same itch. As the Brits enjoy high tea on the subcontinent, the colors are so vivid, the characters so rich, the period piece so faithfully depicted, you can practically smell the Punjabi spices.
  4. The first film is well constructed to be unnerving; the second offers the sight of "Grey's" Dr. Yang toting a revolver. Both make for creepy-rich summer viewing.
  5. Think of Doll & Em as a collection of short stories rather than half-hour comedies and it’s quite absorbing.
  6. The humor is often obscure. The flavor ranges from silly to heartbreaking, crazy to profound. The Emmy-winning show's unpredictability is part of the charm.
  7. All in all, its assured storytelling and fine performances give a worthy contemporary spin to a classic.
  8. Even if zombies aren’t your cup of TV, there is plenty to appreciate about the construction of Fear the Walking Dead.
  9. It may be preposterous. It may lack the political finesse of "The Americans" or "Homeland." But with tight shots of nervous eyes and cinematic displays of Jack's heroics, 24 still excels at high anxiety.
  10. As was the case with the controversial "In Treatment," those with no patience for self-analysis or a psychologically minded view of relationships may find The Affair slow going. But the mystery element should keep even impatient viewers guessing.
  11. What "Nashville" on ABC and Arrow on the CW have in common, is appealing characters in well-plotted stories.
  12. 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]

  13. Well told, well acted, The Strain might be just the thing for fans of “The Walking Dead” feeling a little too calm this summer.
  14. What Nashville on ABC and "Arrow" on the CW have in common, is appealing characters in well-plotted stories.
  15. 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.
  16. Flockhart... is a compelling presence, and the tone of the writing is both fun and thoughtful. [7 Sep 1997]

  17. Tremendous footage of mountain treks and river running make the spectacle compelling while the sometimes clunky dialogue gets the message across.
    • 75 Metascore

    Maximum Bob evokes a little of that quirky show ("Northern Exposure"), with a talented ensemble cast, rich characters, and a script that doesn't write down to viewers. [4 Aug 1998, p.E-01]

  18. The plotting is intricate, the entire acting ensemble is first-rate.
  19. Purists will miss the trappings of 221B Baker Street. But Elementary is appealing on several counts. Count No. 1 is Miller.
  20. The series successfully blends super-heroics with women’s post-war fight against sexism in a fun, winking way.
  21. [A] well-researched film.
  22. The cinematography is stunning, the music and atmospherics are immersive. With occasional hiccups the acting is mostly subtle. Suspension of disbelief will be required (how else can Bassam/Barry slip out of his father's palace in the middle of the night to rendez-vous with an old journalist buddy?) But Tyrant is worth the effort.
  23. G&O feels less serious of intent, less urban or urbane than “Broad City.” But fun.
  24. Togetherness is very L.A., and very of the moment. For some it may feel too true.
  25. Although it's less than exciting and not at all a comic respite, Saul has me along for the ride.
  26. While the hour is entertaining and moves briskly, it lacks the subtlety (not to mention violence, great opening credits and bad wigs) of The Americans.
  27. Duchovny is eminently watchable.... At times the music is more involving than the acting, and appears a useful cover for some lame dialogue. But creator John McNamara ("In Plain Sight") successfully layers sociology, crime story and period music in an involving semi-historical drama.
  28. Promising aspects of opening night were the interactions with Jon Batiste and the Stay Human band, the Oreo cookie binge as a metaphor for indulging in Donald Trump jokes, the nods to both Letterman and Jimmy Fallon, and the peek at what Colbert will be without his Comedy Central blowhard conservative mask. The George Clooney “interview,” not so much.
  29. It's easy to get hooked on the drama's fast-paced, international intrigue and tony visuals (shot in London, Scotland and Morocco). It's almost enough to keep you from contemplating some of the more outrageous turns.
