  1. All the cast seems to be enjoying these turns, because it's a show that cherishes the idea of going over the top.
  2. Beyond the joke, the show’s premise is encouraging: that being gay is no big deal.... The engine driving this show is female friendship, the kind strong enough to get you through even high school. For Amy and Karma, we want that.
  3. Fascinating film details history of American unit whose sole objective was to fool Hitler and Nazis by creating fake armies.
  4. Complications offers a fine ride.
  5. Harper's Island is an elaborate horror movie, a twentysomething slasher flick with a really good wardrobe, a first-rate cast and 13 weeks worth of twists and subplots.
  6. The game has always been better and more joyous than many of the people who played it. "The Tenth Inning," like its predecessor, makes that point as cleanly as a line-drive single to left-center.
  7. This year Dwight has pretty much buried the impersonator tag, though he still has Elvis posters on his wall, and Memphis Beat has further solidified its standing as one of cable's more engaging police dramas.
  8. One of the new season's potentially best sitcoms is born.
  9. It sounds soapy, but it's all handled well enough, and with enough humor, that we believe it.
  10. Survivor’s Remorse becomes simultaneously more uncomfortable and funnier as it launches its second season Saturday. Both those qualities are good.
  11. A relationship with Julie, which has been percolating for some time, might be just a good cover for Dexter. But it feels more complicated than that, which at the very least reflects good writing and acting.
  12. It all adds up to a dizzying series of cross-plots and so many brief and often odd alliances that some viewers may wonder if they've wandered into "Survivor." On the positive side, it's all done with standard Glee fun, the tongue never far from the cheek, and it's punctuated with upbeat musical numbers.
  13. Happily, Harrelson and McConaughey play the characters well enough, and the script is crafted ingeniously enough, that we want to know where it all goes next--and don't focus on the likelihood it will be no place good.
  14. Orange has graphic scenes that aren’t for kids. But they aren’t played for cheap gags, either, and that attitude serves the production well. With Schilling in top form, this Orange tastes fresh.
  15. Like the Oscars themselves at their best, it’s a celebration of the movies.
  16. It’s absurd. It’s ridiculous. If you’re a fan of low-budget horror movies and you miss it, you will regret it for the rest of your life.
  17. Some viewers won't buy the premise of the Social Security numbers. Its beauty, though, is that you don't have to.
  18. There’s little action in Dates. It’s about language, verbal and nonverbal. When the words are this good, that’s enough.
  19. They’re wry and smart about each other and sometimes themselves. Everything also comes out funnier because it’s refreshingly underplayed.
  20. Painful as that journey may be, the show and these actors hit all the notes that make us want to come along.
  21. Spy dramas sometimes get too enamored of their own twists, subplots and dark details, but this one never becomes impenetrable.
  22. The trump card of Hollow Crown, of course, is that it was written by Shakespeare--and if the language sounds stilted to modern ears, anyone who listens for more than a few minutes will be properly seduced.
  23. Much of A to Z deals in a different kind of action than most recent sitcoms about young singles, where the only goal often seems to be setting up predictable sex jokes. Because of that, A to Z may seem a little less frenetic. In truth, that’s good.
  24. The episode moves along at a good pace, with only a couple of moments when the timing feels a little too coincidental.
  25. The songs aren’t all terrific, but like “Rescue Me” at its best, S&D&R&R succeeds both as wild, uncontrolled, absurdist comedy and touching, quiet personal drama.
  26. The Dust Bowl sounds like a dry subject, no cheap pun intended, and Burns works hard to humanize it by talking with some of the now-elderly people who made it through.
  27. It all adds up to plenty of action and suspense, with heroes we like and villains we can boo and hiss. And the fate of the planet at stake. Who says there ain't no cure for the summertime TV blues?
  28. Maybe the best new sitcom of the fall is one of the first.
  29. Wright is a diligent reporter, and his material has been whipped into a smooth script under producers David Simon and Ed Burns.
  30. It’s all done with brilliant imagery and crisp production that differs from Sagan’s primarily because the technology just keeps getting better.
