  1. While Hemingway & Gellhorn makes it clear she had world-class writing skills of her own, Gellhorn's story often does feel subsumed here, as if all of Hemingway's swagger and bravado really did make him a more prominent figure, or at least a more interesting one.
  2. It's an entertaining hour that's not reruns.
  3. The turf [conversations revolving around sex] is so familiar in sitcoms these days that even funny lines feel recycled. Like Men at Work.
  4. Visually, Korra is striking. It's full of little tricks and nuances that only true fans will notice and savor, but nothing prevents civilians from enjoying it as well. The same holds for the mythology.
  5. After a little while, though, it slips over the line from factoid to lecture--and what doesn't help, oddly enough, is the wise-guy attitude the Sklars bring to it.
  6. On its first pass, Common Law feels awkward.
  7. This year, once again, Benedict Cumberbatch's modern-day Holmes and his intrepid sidekick Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman) provide breathtaking non-stop exhilaration.
  8. There's an extent to which watching ad development becomes like watching someone write a song or a book. Unless you're in the game yourself, the result is the only part you really care about.
  9. The answers aren't especially explicit, and the viewer may suspect de Cadenet is looking more for the tone of the reaction than information. That exchange never becomes the most interesting part of the conversation.
  10. The problem with 7 Days isn't its lack of explicit material. It's the mundanity.
  11. It's too easy, too much like a series of safe sketches that play to all the stereotypes everyone in politics claims describe the other side.
  12. It's so intensely focused on these specific girls and their "Sex and the City" dream, though, that at times it may not resonate as much with a larger audience.
  13. While Titanic gets melodramatic and even a little soapy, it achieves what seems to be its main goal: to remind us that when the ship went down, the most terrible loss may have been 1,500 dreams.
  14. The dialogue is crisp, no scene lasts too long, and despite the large cast, we can follow what's happening. What's not clear yet is whether this show has its own style and vision.
  15. The jokes just works best in moderation.
  16. After an episode or two, when you sort out the characters and how their lives bang together in the dark, elegant shadows of late-1950s Miami Beach, you'll find rich drama, well written and beautifully styled.
  17. Okay, delicious trash, perhaps. But still, trash.
  18. Season four continues the good work of past seasons by building on all the trouble Jackie has heaped upon herself.
  19. If Olivia can keep her edge, if Rhimes can keep the stories as strong as the soap, and if we start feeling we don't know exactly what to expect, "Scandal" could become a habit worth forming.
  20. Watching Best Friends Forever is like going to the sitcom thrift shop and poking through the leftovers. It gets old quickly.
  21. Savage U blends his likability and his well-honed shtick in a way that should appeal both to viewers with serious sex questions and casual observers who get off from hearing someone on television talk dirty.
  22. Once you sort out all the teams and players, Game of Thrones falls together like a good Western. But you may need all 167 hours, at least at first, to do the sorting.
  23. It remains a show to which the viewer must pay close attention.
  24. What Niecy Nash's very own reality show does prove is that likable people can produce uninteresting television.
  25. It's not great television in any standard sense, and the appeal of hearing about Christie, Joey Lynn and the ghost of Roberto could soon be as gone as the Dodgers. But, not for nothin', it's got a style of its own.
  26. If Sunday night's two-hour return episode of Mad Men ended after the first four minutes, it would still put the show in contention to win its fifth straight Emmy as the best drama on television.
  27. Bent feels like a one-night stand where, in the morning, no one minds if you don't stay for breakfast.
  28. Duck Dynasty still turns out to be a formulaic show, with a lot of low-level verbal crossfire among family members who at the end of the day assure us they all love each other.
  29. It's not that we haven't seen the polar regions before. But this special, narrated by Alec Baldwin, puts it all together in a way that makes it feel consistently more intriguing than the nature films you remember from school.
  30. Nothing that happens with other characters or elsewhere in the plot, though, is likely to diminish Shahi's presence.
