  1. If you loved "The Office" you may have grave doubts that any followup comedy could be as good and as quote-the-dialogue funny. "Extras" is that - another triumph, and a perfect Sunday-night companion piece for "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
  2. With this delightful and boldly distinctive new series, the co-creator of "Seinfeld" has managed to accomplish two seemingly impossible things at once: He has given HBO its best sitcom since "The Larry Sanders Show," and given all of television the best sitcom since "Seinfeld." [13 Oct 2000]

    Rescue Me is like a roaring five-alarm fire. The moment it seems the blaze is under control - whoosh - the place explodes. And just as quickly, it's under control.
  3. One of this season's most tasty and twisted TV treats.
  4. The improv-based exchanges don't even sound showy anymore. The regular cast members, and even such recurring celebrity guests (usually portraying pettier versions of themselves) as Ted Danson and Richard Lewis, have gotten so skilled at this unusual manner of filmmaking that "Curb Your Enthusiasm" feels almost like reality TV.

  5. Four hours in, living up to past standards no longer is in question. Setting new ones is what's going on here, as "24," partly by cashing in on our knowledge of and commitment to previous seasons and characters, gets off to its best start ever.
  6. Hasn't lost one whit of its wit between seasons. [19 Jul 1995]

  7. Sameer Asad Gardezi and his writing partners have created something very different in Aliens in America--and something very, very funny.
  8. It's not comfortable. Just compelling.
  9. With strong performances by a cast that includes Alfred Molina, Michael Keaton, Rory Cochrane and Chris O'Donnell, this adaptation of a Robert Ludlum novel reels you right in.
  10. "The State Within" is challengingly cerebral - but at times, it's also almost painfully visceral. Don't miss it.
  11. Archer is the rare show that's in love with its own wordplay and good enough that this love becomes endearing rather than annoying.
  12. "The Nine," starting tomorrow, is the show most people will want to discuss at the office water cooler.
  13. It's as brilliant, hard-edged and hilarious as ever. [13 Nov 1996]

  14. Fabulous in every respect.
  15. In theme and execution, in caliber of performance and level of dramatic tension, "Sleeper Cell" is an impressive, relentlessly gripping drama.
  16. The team behind this series--creator Tom Kapinos from "Dawson's Creek," executive producer Scott Winant from "My So-Called Life" and "thirtysomething," and Duchovny himself--makes it easier for Duchovny by surrounding him with sparkling female characters and talent.
  17. The next great "Masterpiece Theater" series has arrived.
  18. Creator Kurt Sutter has found fewer openings to lighten the show as the story has darkened, and that continues to be the case. Still, we want to know what’s going to happen, even if the odds of anything good are about the same as the odds of the show ever winning the Emmys it deserves.
  19. A brooding, brilliantly written and crafted cop show. [25 Oct 1996]

  20. Kelley does two things better than anyone else writing courtroom dramas on television. He exposes and unveils legal tactics in a detailed and inventive fashion, and he does so while creating and sustaining strong characterizations. [4 Mar 1997]

  21. Weiner’s ability to capture “human” set Mad Men apart at the first beginning and shows no sign of faltering at the second.
  22. Like the best TV comedies - from "Seinfeld" to "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," and all the way back to "The Jack Benny Program" - "30 Rock" sparkles not just because its central star gets to shine, but because everyone does.
  23. Pushing Daisies is perfect.
  24. Every hour is impressive, surprising and entertaining.
  25. It's as funny in some places as it is raw and touching in others. Make an effort to watch this premiere, and add it to your short list of must-see TV. [21 July 2004, p.80]

  26. There's not a shred of a doubt in my mind, however, that Murder One is twice the drama "ER" is and that viewers who climb aboard the latest effort from Steven Bochco and company are in for a hell of a ride. [18 Sept 1995, p.68]

  27. A fully satisfying and fitting TV finale, and a show that really should be seen. It's acted as well as it's written and directed, which means it's just about perfect. [21 Oct 2004]

  28. "Futurama," like "The Simpsons," is a multi-layered, full-family treat: silly and goofy-looking enough to hook the kids, and subtle and sarcastic enough to charm their parents. [26 Mar 1999]

  29. While many shows that have reached this point in the road have left their creative peak behind, Mad Men shows no such erosion. It still has things it wants to say and it still has the poetry to say them well.
