  1. HBO's drama Cinema Verite is a searing and irresistible look at the making of An American Family and an incisive dissection of the mendacity of what we so absurdly call reality TV.

    South Riding has everything you could want from a Masterpiece event: perfect period details, a forlornly gray surf, a swelling soundtrack, disputes over crunchy-gravel real estate, whistling trains and black-tie dinners in hotels, a believable and compelling story involving multiple characters and plots and a faithfulness to its original material that allows for a textured, even sorrowful, bleakness.
  2. There's nothing at all subtle about the gloriously absurdist Wilfred.
  3. Suits is far more than a whimsical caper show. Beneath its cuttingly funny dialogue lurk complex emotional edges.
  4. Sins of fathers and mothers not only visit each of the characters, but infest them; the show shimmers with an inner core of volcanic anger that makes it far more interesting than your average family soap.
  5. Torchwood: Miracle Day is smashing entertainment.
  6. Damages returns to spiteful, vindictive and wildly entertaining life Wednesday night after resuscitation by satellite-television provider DirecTV.
  7. The CW's tale of an evil twin and an even eviler twin, is devious doppelganger drama at its best.
  8. Unforgettable is a quirky, captivating take on the police procedurals that have been a staple of the CBS schedule over the past decade.
  9. It's a stylish, elegantly plotted tale of a young woman's sociopathic thirst for vengeance.
  10. Bello's performance as the weather-beaten Timoney, swabbing her emotional scars with alcohol, nicotine and invective, is easily the highlight of the fall television season.
  11. Derivative Pan Am may be, but that doesn't make it any less watchable.
  12. The show shrewdly offers more than a monster of the week, with some absorbing subplots that continue from week to week.
  13. Half a century and half a dozen wars later, it may seem that there's nothing left to say about Vietnam. But Vietnam in HD proves that there is, and says it dazzlingly, horrifyingly well.
  14. For now, Alcatraz is a sinister bag of sinister pleasures.
  15. Smash doesn't dabble in sociology: It's pure greasepaint melodrama. Sneer all you want, but if you sneak in a secret smile now and then, that's OK, too.
  16. The sordid ugliness that festers inside Magic City's voluptuously beautiful wrappings makes irresistible television.
  17. It is a powerful and often heartbreaking piece of filmmaking that ponders just how thin our veneer of civilization really can be.
  18. Hit & Miss, once you get past the successive bombshells of its opening minutes, is a painful yet endearing drama about trying to build a family in a landscape blighted by loneliness and rejection.
  19. Political Animals can be slightly murky when it comes to invoking issues and ideologies. But when it comes to the microlevel of politics, the misdirection and machinations politicians employ to satisfy their own ambitions and thwart those of others, Political Animals is peerless.
  20. O'Dowd and Garai are fascinating as they make their characters grow in opposite directions--he more steely, she more compassionate--over the course of the show.
  21. Guys With Kids is a perfect confection of witty dialogue and slapstick action.
  22. Revolution is big, bold and brassy adventure, a cowboys-and-Indians story for end times.
  23. The new CBS cop drama Vegas--a cross between Gunsmoke, The Untouchables and a Sheriff Joe Arpaio reality show--is wildly entertaining.
  24. It's more like M*A*S*H* for the four-legged, a subversive and perversely funny workplace comedy.
  25. Last Resort's premise alone promises a pretty good action thriller. But co-creator (with Karl Gajusek) and writer Shawn Ryan has produced something much bigger and better than an exercise in bang-bang.
  26. Miller and Liu, simultaneously irritating and charming each other, make Elementary far more watchable than anybody could have expected.
  27. Crisply written and acted, grafting some Enron-era scandal onto a morality tale that goes back to Faust, 666 Park Avenue gives good goosebump.
  28. A show with the twin themes that life is high school and the past cannot be escaped sounds inordinately depressing, but the writing and performances on Emily rise far above the apparent limitations.
  29. The uncommon acuity of Boyd's script is immeasurably bolstered by an outstanding female cast.
