  1. Although it's less than exciting and not at all a comic respite, Saul has me along for the ride.
  2. Push Girls is a hybrid nonfiction series and, ultimately, an inspiring work.
  3. An engaging work of strong storytelling.
  4. The second hour gets into the wrangling with studio bosses, casting decisions and constraints to come. The minutia of line producing may be fascinating in theory, but watching hour after hour is a dreary prospect. [2 Dec 2001, p.F-01]

  5. Last Tango in Halifax is an absorbing, sometimes surprising tale of late-in-life romance marked by stunning performances.
  6. The evolution of the couple's relationship is as engrossing as the strong-arm spy stuff.
  7. Netflix has previously scored with "Orange is the New Black" and "House of Cards," but this is the first true comedy it has picked up and it looks to be a winner. Unbreakable? Unassailable.
  8. The first three hours leave us thirsting for more.
  9. Graphic cruelty, not to mention violence, makes for difficult viewing in this lavishly produced miniseries. But it’s worthwhile, especially as director Clement Virgo has opened a new window on the experience of blacks in Canada.
  10. The goal is not an academic history but a backstage, groupie-eye view. While it's familiar territory for longtime Stones fans, it works.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. The series sometimes meanders, but only because Grohl's goals are lofty.
  14. Deeply cynical about human beings as well as politics and almost gleeful in its portrayal of limitless ambition, House of Cards is a wonderfully sour take on power and corruption.
  15. Oliver is terrific at mining humor from the most popular topics of the day, that is, the idiocy of the media and politicians. He's funny when he's knocking our intelligence. But he's best when he sticks to a barrage of short bits, enhanced with clips or photographs, as in his first week's efforts.
  16. 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.
  17. This ambitious undertaking sticks to over-arching themes through the chronology.
  18. The second season looks to be equally incisive [as the first]. With heart.
  19. You may have read the transcripts over the years, but to hear the dialog, now on the eve of the 40th anniversary of his Aug. 9, 1974 resignation, is newly eye-opening.
  20. Sure it’s sudsy drama. But great characters make for great fun in season 3.
  21. Frankly, the acting merits more accolades than the storylines so far.
  22. Overall, The Knick is a sublimely addictive ride for which viewers will want to scrub up.
  23. A spoofy, sarcastic and hilarious exercise in adult animation.
  24. A beautifully affecting biopic about the tragic and glorious life of blues pioneer Bessie Smith, showcasing a gutsy, soul-and flesh-baring performance by Queen Latifah in the title role.
  25. It won’t be the hit of the year, but Fresh Off the Boat is worth a look.
  26. Laurie is a wonder. His drawn face, scraggly beard, hollowed eyes and gaunt body add an offbeat distinction to his dignified performance. His is a sinister quirkiness. [15 Nov 2004, p.F-01]

  27. The prettiest soap opera on TV continues to offer a refuge from the present while mirroring contemporary attitudes and evolutions.
  28. The first four episodes supplied to critics are engaging, but especially in the aftermath of his passing, the shadow of James Gandolfini is, sadly, everywhere.

    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]
    • Denver Post
  29. It is exploring new turf in terms of a relationship drama with a bold narrative premise, and vaguely spiritual aspirations.
