  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. What "Nashville" on ABC and Arrow on the CW have in common, is appealing characters in well-plotted stories.
  4. 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]

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

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

    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]

  10. The plotting is intricate, the entire acting ensemble is first-rate.
  11. Purists will miss the trappings of 221B Baker Street. But Elementary is appealing on several counts. Count No. 1 is Miller.
  12. The series successfully blends super-heroics with women’s post-war fight against sexism in a fun, winking way.
  13. [A] well-researched film.
  14. 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.
  15. G&O feels less serious of intent, less urban or urbane than “Broad City.” But fun.
  16. Togetherness is very L.A., and very of the moment. For some it may feel too true.
  17. Although it's less than exciting and not at all a comic respite, Saul has me along for the ride.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. The tone ranges from fun to scholarly as colorful drawings enliven the film.
  21. Matthew Lillard, Emily Rios, Thomas M. Wright, Ted Levine and Annabeth Gish are well cast and their characters are fully sketched. Having seen two hours of season 2, I’m not ready to give up yet, but I’m starting to prioritize TV’s darkest hours and wonder if The Bridge will make the cut.
  22. Judging by the first handful of episodes, Battle Creek is a tad more eccentric than the usual CBS drama, a refreshing step beyond the procedural format. Not a challenging series, but a watchable one.
  23. Trump's narrative skills are as grating as his accent, but the hook is undeniable: With peeks into The Donald's penthouse, boardroom, helicopter, limo and his taste in hiring and firing, this debut has solid entertainment value. [8 Jan 2004]

  24. There seems to have been a conscious decision to add a dose of not just violence but horrific suspense and shocking violence. The first hour in particular feels like a disappointing departure. The character remains the same, even if he encounters accentuated gore and mental illness in the criminals. He even grows a bit.
  25. Think of it as a def Dallas, an African-American Dynasty for 2003, a blend of MTV and BET that finds itself on UPN. ... Sex, violence, music and some eye-catching casting make this effort worth a look. [13 Apr 2003]

  26. The debut is cinematically beautiful, the cast is top-notch, the story is compelling, the characters distinct, the music stirring. The question is, why now? [30 Dec 1997]

  27. Grand special effects, impressive acting by the young Sequoyah and an enduring interest in all things supernatural may help Believe to catch on.
  28. The documentary, narrated by Benjamin Bratt (son of a Peruvian mother), is rather dry in spite of the rich subject matter. It's particularly slow-going at the start (the pre-Alamo section is a slog), but it picks up steam as the chronology moves toward the modern age with notables contributing first-person accounts.
  29. Truthfully, a little bit of this fun farce may go a long way.
