  1. A show so unusual in its format and plot that it will rival both "Lost" and "24" in creativity and "The O.C." in its character development.
  2. A wall-to-wall weepfest.
  3. If you love a big, seriously politically incorrect, brilliantly funny show that delivers belly laughs of the "South Park" quantity, then this one's for you.
  4. Maddening and exciting.
  5. Nothing but shocker after shocker.
  6. So what is there to like about this show? The same thing there was to like about "The Sopranos" and "The Shield" - great writing, insanely good acting, deeply troubled and deeply layered characters and a plot that will keep you glued to your seat.
  7. "Elizabeth I" soars on every level from the writing, to the directing to the acting.
  8. Its scripts - always among the finest on TV - are even stronger this time around.
  9. It's not only laugh-out-loud-until-soda-squirts-out-of-your-nose funny, but it's also perfectly cast.
  10. Happily, "Weeds" hasn't dropped a petal or missed even a beat this season.
  11. One of the finest TV shows ever made.
  12. 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.
  13. Disturbing, sober and flawless.
  14. Not only the funniest new show this season, but the strangest one since "Get A Life."
  15. 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.
  16. Showtime's glorious, gorgeous "The Tudors" is the best series since "The Sopranos." Period.
  17. As profane as "Deadwood" and as profound as "The Sopranos," the series strikes every right chord.
  18. 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.
  19. If you check out Mad Men tonight, I guarantee you'll be back next week.
  20. This new 10-episode season boasts the same high quality of production that this series has always exhibited.
  21. The [first two episodes] are filled with mystery, suspense, action and the lush greenery of Hawaii, where the show is filmed. Be there. Aloha.
  22. Combs does a great, great job--especially for someone who isn't known as an actor. And the rest of this cast glows. Don't miss it--and don't let your kids miss it either.
  23. 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.
  24. Both "The Closer" and Saving Grace are at the top of their games in tonight's premiere episodes.
  25. For better or worse, The Shield set the standard for what is now permissible on basic cable. It's one of those shows I can't imagine living without.
  26. As good and as riveting as the high school football-as-soap-opera show has been in the past, this season is even better.
  27. Fey's back to her day job tonight and 30 Rock is as funny as ever, as cynical as we hoped, and as fresh as if it were a freshman show.
  28. All the new characters are wonderfully drawn, including FBI agent Walker (Annie Wersching); bad, bad guy Jonas Hodges (Jon Voight); a new Chloe-type nerd (Janeane Garofalo). Especially good are Jones and her husband (Colm Feore), who is more consumed with solving his son's death than in being First Man. Whew! Thank God there is Jack Bauer--unchanging, unflinching.
  29. The Tudors, Showtime's all-of-the-above series, comes roaring back Sunday night as fresh as its first season.
  30. This new phase takes the show from sometimes cartoonish to serious, punctuated with belly-laugh dialogue. This is thanks, in no small part, to Michael J. Fox, who is in six episodes this year.
