  1. Suburban rage may not be pretty, but in Nip/Tuck, it's always funny. [22 July 2003, p.3E]

  2. Weeds may make you chuckle, but it wants you to gasp, and unless your name is June and you call your youngest son Beaver, it's not likely to happen. [7 Aug 2005]

  3. If the genre is no longer groundbreaking, it's still compelling in skilled hands.
  4. Community's party animals tend to get their kicks less from bongs, grain-alcohol projectile vomiting and peeping into sorority windows than from irregular Spanish verbs and lengthy recitations of the script of The Breakfast Club, which, for the most part, is even less amusing than it sounds.
  5. Torchwood: Miracle Day is smashing entertainment.
  6. 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]

  7. Funny and intriguing.
  8. Turgid and plodding, Rubicon has the pace of an industrial-training film and the lucidity of a Czech art movie with the subtitles turned off. It would have to triple its pulse to rise to the level of lethargy.
  9. Flying Blind tries to transplant the wackiness of old screwball comedies into series TV. The leads have chemistry, but Alicia's way-out, avant-garde world can be a drag. [12 Sep 1992]

  10. Conceptually, this isn’t half-bad. The writing, unfortunately, is all-bad.
  11. Think Gray's Anatomy with unpretty people; then think of something else to watch.
  12. Legit--and I say this with a certain amount of admiration, coupled with trepidation that some new program on the spring schedule will soon prove me wrong--is the most degraded, debauched and degenerate show on TV.
  13. Lovably silly.
  14. 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]

  15. A very watchable hour of TV. [23 Sep 2002]

  16. Try as Midler might - and she does try, doing a few physical comedy bits that would make Lucille Ball proud - even she can't overcome the reality that Bette is an idea that never developed beyond the star's reputation. [11 Oct 2000, p.1E]

  17. Sons of Anarchy is bloody, disturbing and maniacally addictive.
  18. No fictional conceit can possibly match the darkness of the Manson family. But Durham County, a series about a cop's growing realization that his bland suburban neighborhood may house a serial killer, is genuinely creepy.
  19. It's only measured against that formidable benchmark that the spinoff falls short of those expectations. It's a solid drama, but it's no Law & Order - yet...On its own, it's a good show. But it's got the genes to be great. [20 Sept 1999, p.1E]

  20. This can be dryly funny in small doses, but Conchords really feels less like a sitcom than a Saturday Night Live sketch stretched out to about six times its shelf-life.
  21. It is a powerful and often heartbreaking piece of filmmaking that ponders just how thin our veneer of civilization really can be.
  22. Watching Better Off Ted is a bit like reading old Dilbert comic strips--amusing, but the punch lines seem awfully familiar.
  23. As drama, unfortunately, it's often punchless, with a meandering narrative which, it's obvious from the first moments, cannot be contained within a single two-hour show.
  24. The new CBS cop drama Vegas--a cross between Gunsmoke, The Untouchables and a Sheriff Joe Arpaio reality show--is wildly entertaining.
  25. This sitcom is a loving embrace of convulsive domestic eccentricity.
  26. It's a testament to the remarkable performance of Collette that it will never occur to viewers that Tara's behavior is anything but a mortal compulsion. Her remarkable moment-to-moment morphs from teeny-bopper slut to Stepford Wife to biker brute and then back again beggar the imagination.
  27. Mixing paranoia, bleak humor and post-9/11 exhaustion in a potent story-telling brew, it's one of the new television season's most promising dramas.
  28. Derivative Pan Am may be, but that doesn't make it any less watchable.
  29. 30 Rock... is pretty darn funny, a bitterly merry comic jihad against corporate stupidity and mendaciousness.

    Pillars does a surprisingly good job of maintaining story coherence. It also avoids what might be called the Fairytale-Princess Fallacy of costume dramas; the muck and brutality of the Middle Ages are on full display.
