  1. While the plot rests a tad heavily on a couple of wild coincidences, writer David Wolstencroft ("MI-5") has constructed an interesting tangle of smart dialogue and credible characters to put across a rather cynical view of lawyers and law.
  2. 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]

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. A spoofy, sarcastic and hilarious exercise in adult animation.
  6. This ambitious undertaking sticks to over-arching themes through the chronology.
  7. The Starz 10-hour miniseries is a beautiful, fun period piece populated by amazing talent.
  8. 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.
  9. Benedict Cumberbatch is alive and well and in fine form.... Purists may find the fancy graphics distracting but creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss use the high-tech touches sparingly.
  10. Beneath the craziness and violence are some great character studies, meditations on the nature of humanity, clever social commentary, fun flashbacks to vampire lives in past centuries and, as always, cable-ready hard bodies.
  11. 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.
  12. The hour, directed by Chris Rock, further cements her status as an all-medium power player. By turns coy, insecure, dramatic and challenging, Schumer has the flexibility to make her conversation both intimate and grandstanding.
  13. It’s a next-gen “Barney Miller,” a smart workplace cop comedy.
  14. 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.
  15. Great casting, terrific costumes, even a worthy new original song made it a spirited night.
  16. Dramatically gripping and well cast, the film offers a glimpse inside the compound that has made headlines.
  17. What could be a trite pitch for togetherness is probed for deeper meaning in an hour that has a big heart behind its hip stance.
  18. The evolution of the couple's relationship is as engrossing as the strong-arm spy stuff.
  19. His name is above the title and, depending how you feel about James Spader, NBC’s The Blacklist may become your favorite fall show.
  20. 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.
  21. Dunham succeeds in making viewers uncomfortable while proferring a new (sharp, slightly bitter) flavor of introspective female comedy.
  22. It's telegenic, adrenaline-pumping drama, edited to manipulate as well as inform. (Not for nothing is a fresh-faced young female urologist the first character introduced, talking about a penile surgery.) But it's also real and, for that reason, far better than the "Grey's Anatomy" soap opera.
  23. 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.
  24. It's all very creepy, mysterious and loaded with questions.
  25. Assuming you aren't a programmer and don't plan to invent the next killer app, you may at first find HBO's Silicon Valley more pathetic than amusing.... By the end of the second episode, however, the personalities take off, the humor sharpens and there's no need to reboot.
  26. This isn't a procedural with a neat answer at the end of each episode. But it is involving.
  27. Sharp, funny and demanding of its lead actor, 'Watching Ellie' is NBC's best sitcom attempt in years. [26 Feb 2002]

  28. The second hour is more engrossing than the first, and is easily rich enough to keep us coming back for more.
  29. The thrill of the chase comes through in the film.
  30. It's a beautiful interview piece with archival photographs and clips that will inform any viewer's appreciation of the performing arts.
