  1. Many of the people we meet in the cast are good guys, which gives Dancing a hopeful tone, even when the odds go the other way. We want the folks who deserve it to win, and so does the show.
  2. Whether you agree or disagree, the film sorts out a complex situation in simple and human terms.
  3. Body of Proof would be interesting enough if it were just "Quincy" with better legs. Add the other elements and you have something worth checking out.
  4. A new ABC Family series built around four teenage friends and an ominous hint of supernatural forces that mean no good, makes most popular vampire romances look anemic.
  5. Sons has hit the ground roaring.
  6. Ironically, Griffiths at times may be a little too much actress for her role. But it takes a village to make a Camp, and watching this crew work to save Little Otter and find summer love is far from the worst thing you could do at 10 o’clock on Wednesday night
  7. Boss makes the stories compelling and chilling all over again.
  8. Like "The Sopranos," Breaking Bad finds nuance and drama within this compromised world, and in the process suggests intriguing and sometimes unsettling parallels to the world in which the rest of us live.
  9. The best moments in Wednesday night's chat between Elvis Costello and Elton John, which are good enough to recommend the show for fans of both men, serve up small but sparkling musical pleasures.
  10. With 19 episodes remaining in this season, there's plenty of time for all this drama to intensify and the characters to sort themselves out as good and not-so-good.
  11. What matters is how well it's done, and Disney does a lot of things right. It's multicultural. Parents are portrayed as people. The intrapersonal dramas are small enough so viewers will understand them.
  12. Bomb Girls isn't a fancy show. It's just a whole bunch of good stories.
  13. Like many sitcoms, 2 Broke Girls stretches a little to set up the premise, but once it gets there we're sold, mainly because the two lead actresses are funny and endearing with great chemistry.
  14. Boardwalk Empire loses sight of neither the large nor the small pictures as it moves into season two.
  15. Sunset Limited requires considerable engagement, an assignment made easier by the superb performances of Jackson and Jones. Their verbal sparring may not be a reason to live, but it's sure a good reason to watch this production.
  16. It's still not a show for everyone, since 99% of the action is conversation. But it's intelligent conversation, and the problems of the patients, including Weston, are multilayered and compelling.
  17. About as smart, charming and clever as comedy can get. [25 Sept 2001, p.100]

  18. The shadows are deep enough over "Breaking Bad" that it's hard to imagine a ray of hope or light shining through anywhere. But the actors and writers are so good that, like Walt, we'll keep looking for it.
  19. The Affair looks to be a bit more cerebral than some of Showtime’s other star shows. That makes it no less compelling.
  20. It's a bumpy, wild ride that has all the dark humor, surprising twists and sudden outbursts of violence of a "GoodFellas" or a "Casino" high praise and tough comparisons, but The Sopranos lives up to them. [8 Jan 1999, p.116]

  21. Jenna's buoyancy in a life of constant land mines keeps Awkward fun and refreshing.
  22. The notes of triumph become louder and more frequent as PBS’ ambitious six-hour series on America’s fastest-growing minority moves toward its conclusion.
  23. Montgomery's last gig on CBS, "Without a Trace," lasted seven years. Unforgettable has a ways to go, but it's got a lot of the right stuff.
  24. It knows exactly what it wants and needs its new hybrid product to be. The hockey fights video of teen romance drama.
  25. While there are times when it’s no easier to watch, the certainty of the end seems to give the show more focus.
  26. If something has been missing from your TV screen since "24" went off the air, like an unapologetic, fist-pumping, nonstop action thriller with compelling good guys and loathsome bad guys, Cinemax's new Strike Back needs to be your appointment television for the next 10 weeks.
  27. Anyone who loves Batman, naturally, will be watching Gotham, and knowing the Batman world makes the show more fun. But it’s also surprisingly accessible to viewers who just like a good action-packed cop drama with a dry sense of humor. Up front, it looks like a bat-winner.
  28. Bessie doesn’t poke into deep psychology. It’s more a snapshot of an impressive, self-made life--with a great soundtrack.
  29. Much of the real beauty of Power lies in the details, conversational and visual.
  30. It’s a half hour you won’t regret spending.
