  1. [Executive producer Shawn] Ryan's a good juggler, especially when he can work at a cable pace. He likes to take a moment and roll it around in his hands. He's helped by first-rate chemistry between the show's two main dudes, and a uniformly strong supporting cast.
  2. Fox's best comedies are always off-center. Raising Hope forgets to stay there.
  3. The first episode of Angel is exciting and enticing. [5 Oct 1999, p.74]
  4. The law-firm arena is one of TV's oldest and most familiar genres, but Damages enlivens it by defying expectations.
  5. One of the triumphs of Boss is that we care as much as he [Tom Kane] does about what kind of Chicago he will leave behind.
  6. It’s lethal and funny. Sometimes the new normal looks much like the old.
  7. A clever, quick and maybe even a little subversive show. [21 Sep 1998]
  8. "Without a Trace," however derivative, is a solid program, and ought to please "CSI" audiences.
  9. Every hour is impressive, surprising and entertaining.
  10. Everything isn't perfect on Burn Notice. Some of the subplots have to be wrapped up a little neatly. But the interplay of the core group has enough ambivalence and shadows to keep the show intriguing.
  11. Top Chef is a show where you wouldn't mind having almost any of these people fix your dinner. That may sound like a formula for disaster among these types of shows, but in reality, it works out well.
  12. She seems distant and a little wary, like someone who has carefully built a comfortable life and sees no reason to invite a lot of strangers in. Her relationship with us is what she sees and shares. In the end, that seems fair enough.
  13. It's the detection, as well as the detective, that draws you and holds you here. Neither the cases nor the characters are simple - and in both cases, that's a compliment. [16 Nov 2004, p.107]
  14. Fortunately, someone finally grabs hold of the wheel and steers it back to where it belongs, as one of the great character dramas of contemporary television.
  15. A solid, nonjudgmental documentary on a man so tortured he almost killed himself, yet gifted with remarkable insight into human behavior, his and ours.
  16. As good a cast as you'll find anywhere on TV.... But in the end, the decisive question may be whether inner TV provides as much material as the inner White House.
  17. Monk is a delight, a show that should be added to everyone's can't-miss list. [11 July 2002, p.96]
  18. Viewers may find it takes some concentration to sort out the lineup and the dramas here. The payoff is worth the investment.
  19. Lots of location shots give Strike Back an unusually acute sense of realism, and the show wisely spends more time with the boys in the field than with the command unit back home.
  20. They’re wry and smart about each other and sometimes themselves. Everything also comes out funnier because it’s refreshingly underplayed.
  21. At this point, [it's] somewhere between a long shot and a lock.
  22. Viewers who don't regularly contemplate alternative-reality issues probably should tape the show as well as watch it, because the non-expert may have to watch it twice just to figure out what's going on, or even to understand what parts we don't understand.
  23. Fishburne, however, has done some terrific acting, and Langston is a character who's strong enough (though a nontraditional one for police shows) to firmly take Grissom's place at the table. Just in a different seat.
  24. Gossip Girl will get some slack on repeating itself, because teenagers have an incredibly high tolerance for remixing, reworking and rehashing the drama in their own lives. But the show still has to feel fresh, which is why Monday's episode adds at least two new characters who promise to have significant impact on people we already know.
  25. As You Like It is effortlessly entertaining from start to finish.
  26. It's now even easier to get so caught up in the dramas that you can forget this show is really funny.
  27. The film isn’t after “why.” It just wants to say that a lot of physical and circumstantial evidence points to a missile. Toward that goal, it’s on target.
  28. It makes for lively drama, and, given what was at stake for religion and royalty, its historical significance remains legitimate. It just gets hard to watch sometimes, because even though most drama is fueled by its villains, The Tudors needs a few more characters we could actually like.
  29. In contrast to Scorsese's other work, like his Bob Dylan documentary and "The Last Waltz," George Harrison feels like it doesn't get far below the surface.
  30. Some of it is moderately profane. Some pushes traditional boundaries of taste, though in today's comedy world these guys aren't even close to the edge.
