  1. What makes Welcome to the Family interesting, and rather sweet, is that it confounds expectations.
  2. Sean Saves the World is like a comedy cruise to self-discovery, with both Sean and his daughter learning of strengths and weaknesses they didn’t know they had, the process punctuated with keenly funny dialogue and precision timing.
  3. Watching this conspiracy, class warfare and romantic indiscretion collide makes for a hugely engaging show, all the more so because of the lushly photographed Victorian settings and droll dialogue.
  4. Suburban rage may not be pretty, but in Nip/Tuck, it's always funny. [22 July 2003, p.3E]

  5. As science fiction, Roswell is passable entertainment, sort of a less-dark X-Files. It rises above that, however, through the relationship of Liz and Max. Appleby and Behr make their characters crackle with magnetic attraction. [6 Oct 1999, p.1E]

  6. The multiplicity of story lines and characters turns Las Vegas into a complex undertaking, but Caan, Duhamel and their excellent castmates make it work, brilliantly. [22 Sept 2003, p.4E]

  7. Nor is The L Word all sexual sturm und drang. Its light moments are laugh-out-loud funny. [18 Jan 2004, p.3M]

  8. Aside from the dismal possibility that Braugher's return to television could be a short one, should Gideon's Crossing fail, it would be a critical blow to shows that dare to be deep. [10 Oct 2000, p.2E]

    Fox's return to prime-time TV finds him hitting his mark...What's more, the actor is surrounded by a likable cast. [17 Sept 1996, p.1C]

    If you've followed the TV careers of Charmed's stars -- Shannen Doherty (Beverly Hills 90210), Holly Marie Combs (Picket Fences) and Alyssa Milano (Who's the Boss) -- then just the idea of all three being in the same show makes it worth a look. The premise is at times campy, but it works. [7 Oct 1998, p.3D]

  9. In the premiere episode, there are times when it is difficult to believe Ally is a top-notch lawyer, given her tentative, almost little-girl nature. Then there are scenes like her frank and catty discussion with Billy's wife... that are great fun to watch. [8 Sep 1997]

  10. Elfman's wacky persona injects new life into the tired sitcom premise of opposites attract. [24 Sept 1997, p.4D]

  11. Dave's World is shrewdly observant. It's a success by more than a few nose hairs. [20 Sept 1993, p.6]

  12. Refreshing, low-key and true to its small-town Texas setting, the series goes against the grain of most so-called current "family entertainment." This isn't another inane sitcom with dopey adults and unbearably cute kiddies. Everyone here seems natural, real. [1 Oct 1993]

  13. Lowlife though it may be, Twins is just plain funny.
  14. The cynical and cerebral Threshold is the darkest of the three new space-alien shows, so much so that the producers seem to be wondering if the human race is even worth saving.
  15. Elfman establishes herself as one of the major female comic presences on television.
  16. This sitcom is a loving embrace of convulsive domestic eccentricity.
  17. As a reality show, Miracle Workers is unique: It is neither Machiavellian like Survivor, nor messianic, like Three Wishes, nor grotesque, like Fear Factor. It's as serious as life and death.
  18. Highly entertaining.
  19. Just think of all the stolen ideas as a public works program for Hollywood lawyers and stick to the action on-screen, which is quite entertaining.
  20. With a gorgeous cast (even -- especially? -- the dead ones), plenty of cool slow-mo martial arts action, a glorious collection of lethal hardware and an intriguing plot, Blade's got something for the whole family, provided they rank somewhere between the Munsters and the Mansons in sensibility.
  21. Surreal and then some.
  22. Poignantly funny.
  23. At times Smith seems less like a crime drama than a character study of a collection of seriously damaged people. But the show's metabolism is enjoyably unpredictable.
  24. Six Degrees starts off almost as an anthology series, with six stories set in six different worlds, each one quite interesting. But as their orbits draw closer, interest rapidly morphs into fascination.
  25. This is an intriguing blend of The Fugitive and The O.C.: half suspense and half intergenerational melodrama.
  26. You've seen it all before, but Berg's sharp powers of observation and a talented and very pretty young cast... keep it fresh.
  27. If you're willing to invest some time and brain cells, The Nine is an absorbing experience.
  28. Delirious, dizzy, decadent and altogether delicious.
