  1. Great acting, writing and direction.
  2. If you're not a big fan of Gaga, or even if you think she's Madonna lite, this HBO concert film will make you a true believer--or a believer, at any rate.
  3. Maddening and exciting.
  4. In an age when TV is quickly going the way of all idiots, a show like this is a gift...I watched three episodes and can't wait to see more! more! more!

  5. If the "opening statements" don't have you on the floor calling for a back brace--because you've thrown your spine out from laughing--then you are either in a coma or watching a different channel.
  6. A bleak, slow-moving, humorless show that is still so good that you will be angry every time an episode ends.
  7. One of the many excellent things about Downton Abbey is the variety of rich female characters creator Fellowes has fashioned.
  8. It's one heckuva fascinating look into a world and a culture with which most of us have little or no experience.
  9. Everyone is spectacular, even the secondary players like Leonard Armond Robinson as Mickey Rivers, who steals more scenes than bases, and Erik Jensen, who so underplays Munson that he's mesmerizing - and, most especially, Michael Rispoli, who plays Jimmy Breslin - or should I say becomes Breslin? Don't miss it. Just great.
  10. The miniseries--starring Greg Kinnear as JFK, Barry Pepper as Bobby, Katie Holmes as Jacqueline and Tom Wilkinson as Joseph Sr.--is without a doubt one of the best, most riveting, historically accurate dramas about a time and place in American history that has ever been done for TV.
  11. As important as those set battles scenes are to the series, they are blended beautifully with the bravery, frailties, strength and weaknesses of the actual people involved.
  12. What would you get if you combined the brains behind "The Usual Suspects" and "The X-Men" with the writer of "Quiz Show" and "Homicide: Life On the Streets"? Aside from a lotta smarts, you'd get House, the best new show since "Lost." [16 Nov 2004, p.91]

  13. OK - so plausibility is not this show's strong suit. It never has been. This show is about suspense, action and violence. And, as a look at the show's first four hours reveals, all three have been taken up several notches in the series' sixth season.
  14. It's all as addictive as an uber-fresh, ice-cold slice of watermelon on one of the hills of Rome in the scorching heat.
  15. Not as much sex as you may be used to, but plenty of action, and enough complexities to keep geeks, geniuses and fans glued to the strange and wonderful world of the Seven Kingdoms all spring.
  16. Will Big Love go out with a big bang? If the final season's opener is any indication, the answer is a big "yes."
  17. They've added a new element that makes it something I can finally (I'm sorry) sink my teeth into. They've added politics as blood sport.
  18. Happily, "Weeds" hasn't dropped a petal or missed even a beat this season.
  19. Despite flitting between seven settings, the episode is as dark and compelling as ever, hinting at a looming shift in power and perspective.
  20. Happily, they are not your average sitcom weirdo crazy group-therapy people. These folks are oddballs, yes, but they are oddballs trying to overcome great tragedy.
  21. The best detective show to come along in, well, decades...It is so clever, that it makes you remember how good TV used to be - and still can be when they use actors who didn't train at Ford Models. And when they hire writers who can actually put two words together...I promise you, you've never seen anything quite like it. [11 July 2002, p.73]

  22. With her pitiless, clear-eyed gaze, McDormand is a marvel as Olive, capturing not only the character’s indomitable spirit but her fears as Olive’s world begins to crumble.... The film, directed by Lisa Chodolenko, recalls those ’70s films like “A Woman Under the Influence” and “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” that weren’t afraid to take the full measure of a woman’s life.
  23. After watching the 10-hour Band of Brothers, I'm so drained by the intensity of what I have just beheld that I'm ready to declare this World War II miniseries the finest piece of work ever produced for television. [7 Sept 2001, p.117]

  24. These killers are more fun than a cemetery full of psycho zombie killers on Halloween.
  25. The Tudors, Showtime's all-of-the-above series, comes roaring back Sunday night as fresh as its first season.
  26. The [first two episodes] are filled with mystery, suspense, action and the lush greenery of Hawaii, where the show is filmed. Be there. Aloha.
  27. Nashville is arguably the best-written new TV series of the fall season.
  28. The dialog is crisply Pileggi, natch, but it's the flavor of South Beach, the most exciting American city in the 1990's (before the tourists realized that it was safe to go back in the water) that's captured precisely.
  29. Unlike almost all other shows, Nip/Tuck doesn't give you cliffhangers and episodes that lead up to finales - with this show, every episode is as good as a season finale. And as shocking. Number 15 blade, please!
  30. The best new network show of the season...It's bright, it's dark, it's stylized, it's realistic - in short, I haven't been this enthusiastic about a dramatic network show since "CSI" and haven't been as happy with an ABC show since "Alias."
