  1. Beneath its estimable comic trappings, Go On is something larger: a meditation on what makes life worth living.
  2. Devlin's complex relationship with the gangsters is what elevates The Mob Doctor into something a cut or two above a Grey's Anatomy rip-off.
  3. Arrow has a rather stylish neo-Goth look, and Stephen Amell (who played a dim-bulb gigolo in Hung) neatly balances his portrayal of Arrow between camp and Saturday-matinee ingenuousness.
  4. Like True Blood, Banshee can be preposterously entertaining, or perhaps entertainingly preposterous.
  5. Though dazzlingly plotted and acted, the show is not easily watched.
  6. It's a provocative mishmash of future shock and peculiar anachronisms. [19 Sept 2002, p.E1]
  7. An intriguing crime drama.
  8. The scenes of the guys driving golf balls onto the roofs of Hollywood mansions or scamming stereo dealers are funny and even sweet in a post-adolescent Porky's sort of way. [18 July 2004, p.5M]
  9. Re-visiting Star Trek on television holds the same nostalgic, socko appeal that the boffo-box-office movies do. I didn't miss Kirk, Spock and friends. [28 Sep 1987]
  10. Weep no more for Dawson's Creek, Felicity or Beverly Hills, 90210. That achy yearning in your soul for a mawkish, trashy, over-the-top, slightly dumb but kinda fun teen soap is about to be filled with One Tree Hill. [23 Sept 2003, p.4E]
  11. Even if you aren’t convinced by TWA Flight 800, though, it’s worth watching.

    The show's sense of humor might be described as highbrow deadpan. What's uncanny is how the animation captures each performer's physical and verbal tics. [6 Apr 1996]
  12. There’s also plenty of good writing and acting in the drama Lucky 7, though to exactly what purpose is difficult to say.
  13. The humor is driven mostly by a relentless slapstick vulgarity, particularly concerning the flatulence and sex habits of parents. If you’ve got a high tolerance for those sorts of jokes, it is funny indeed.
  14. Alice’s battles with various computer-animated and live-action threats are entertaining and, usually, rather witty, though her traveling companions, the White Rabbit (voiced by John Lithgow) and the Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha, the proletarian werewolf in the later season’s of the BBC version of Being Human), get most of the best lines.
  15. Soapy and silly this all may be, but immersion in the intrigue of Reign has its pleasures, not all of them from laughing at its absurdities.
  16. Mob City would be better if it were just a little bit more raw--there’s something amiss when a putative sleazy jazz dive looks like you could eat off the floors. But its proudly pulpy sensibilities and its startling plot twists make it a whiskey-and-a-shot pleasure.
  17. This Bonnie & Clyde, taken on its own terms, is a perfectly entertaining gangster picture, not to mention an interesting experiment in its simultaneous propagation and subversion of feminist doctrine.

    Beavis and Butt-Head are lewd and crude, and they are a phenomenon. Funny, too -- that is, if the scrawlings on the boy's bathroom stalls in your local junior high tickle your funny bone. [20 Aug 1993, p.3]
  18. It's a very enjoyable hour and it's easy to get caught up in the action and the scenery and forget what we all know from the movie and the first series. But it's a tossup whether the manhunt will bring us back week after week. This time around, Kimble's chase could be much shorter. [6 Oct 2000, p.1E]
  19. A stylish but familiar high school story, one that's considerably easier to take than two of this TV season's other back-to-school efforts: "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" and "Ferris Bueller". And, it's less frenetic than "Hull High". The show's greatest assets are Priestley and Doherty, who are appealing even when the storylines aren't. [4 Oct 1990, p.G1]
  20. Exhausting. With documentary precision and harrowing efficiency, E.R. drops you in the emergency room and leaves you there to squirm. [17 Sep 1994]
  21. Ben Stiller pulls off so many inspired skits in Sunday's premiere that his series ranks as one of the fall's most promising. ... Just try to overlook the weak material. [26 Sep 1992]
  22. Until the confrontation scene, Fresh Prince coasts along on the considerable charm of Smith, who is making his acting debut at 21. Many shows before it have relied on their stars, but that last scene gives an intriguing insight into what Fresh Prince could be. [9 Sept 1990, p.H1]
  23. Surface has no complex or cynical subtexts; it's straight-ahead sci fi.
  24. Cooper and Somerville... keep things moving.
  25. There was a lot more to Sex and the City than menage a trois jokes, and whether Hot Properties can move beyond smutty snickers to develop real characters and story lines remains to be seen.
  26. However badly you thought American race relations were going, Black. White. will make you feel worse.
  27. The Loop's constant jokes about hot bodies and alcoholic excess would doubtless wear thin very quickly if not for a lunatic cast of young unknowns and gifted veteran character actors.
  28. If not exactly compelling, the pilot episode is engaging and often quirkily funny.
