  1. FNL didn't get to be the best new show on prime time last season by losing its balance, and tonight's opener has the large cast still making almost all the right moves. [5 Oct 2007, p.147]

  2. Tremendously likable.
  3. "Big Love" sounds like a high-concept, comedic, intentionally sensational enterprise. Parts of "Big Love" are sensational, all right. But only in the best sense of the word.
  4. The episodes that kick off this last 10-show run don't feel perfect. But they almost always feel intuitively right.
  5. Powerful.
  6. It's all charming, with the crackle of Kelley at his best. [1 Oct 2004]

  7. It just might be the kids, the ones who grow up too soon in the hard world of "The Wire," who steal opening night.
  8. If you relish the devious darkness of "Dexter" and the wonderful wackiness of "Weeds," you'll love the macabre moodiness of "Meadowlands."
  9. Any fan of Westerns, or of Duvall, will not be disappointed if this "Trail" is followed.
  10. It's dependent almost entirely on characters rather than plot - but, with such recognizable characters, "The Office" works beautifully. [10 Oct 2003]

  11. It boldly goes where no man has gone before.
  12. Chuck sounds like a regrettably derivative idea - a remake of "Jake 2.0." But it's not. Chuck is a blast.
  13. Elizabeth is mercurial, powerful, unpredictable - qualities made real, and a bit frightening, because of the intensity with which Mirren commits to the role.
  14. I love the idea of a superhero with a great big heart and a tiny little brain, and I love Patrick Warburton's fearless performance in the title role of this odd new live-action comedy.
  15. One of the new season's best and most unusual series, with a shot at true excellence within its reach. [8 Sep 1997]

  16. Their dance of love and rejection, of giddiness and bitterness, is a warped waltz, and Kingsley and Bening clearly relish every step.
  17. Hilarious.
  18. Just reciting plots can make Southland sound like a soap opera, and in some ways that's what ensemble shows are. But this one is more than that.
  19. There are no actual fires involved, and several key scenes are played in near-silence. The emotional intensity, though, rips right through the screen.
  20. "Fun" hasn't been a big part of her job description, but she may have found some of it here.
  21. The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency takes some time setting itself up Sunday night, but those who stay with it will be rewarded with the funniest and most charming lady detective series since "Murder, She Wrote."
  22. It’s beautifully filmed, with a measured pace and a priority on the performances.
  23. The indomitable Ragnar (played with great intensity by Aussie Travis Fimmel) is now an earl and finds that politics can be more treacherous than hand-to-hand combat.
  24. Nurse Jackie is delivering quite nicely with the personnel on hand. Among other things, it confirms that the best comedy is often rooted in things that are not funny at all, but make people act in funny ways.
  25. Ugly Americans packs a lot into 21 or 22 minutes. Happily, its often droll and deadpan style makes it easy to watch even if some of the references are whizzing by unappreciated.
  26. It's hard to imagine reinventing the concept of the doctor show. But in a way, that's what Private Practice sets out to do in its new-look second season Wednesday--and it doesn't do a bad job.
  27. A splendid new addition to pay-cable's stock of dark comedies that keep a human heart beating behind the laughs.
  28. While the move to New York opens new story lines, the first episode doesn't feel like a city show. It has a sprinkling of exteriors, but it doesn't feel as if it's really happening here yet. With a little time, though, Nancy can make just about anything work.
  29. It’s not just a good story, it’s a good story well told.
  30. Boardwalk Empire keeps the players moving as its fourth season begins Sunday night, and that’s just one reason it remains must-see television drama.
