  1. The action is pretty non-stop, the stars terrific and, if you're willing to do the work to follow the complicated plot, the show can be lots of fun.
  2. The stunts (or whatever they're called) Brown performs, especially on tough, cynical New Yorkers, are hilarious and astounding.
  3. Get past the first hour and you've got a helluva good tale.
  4. The show has loads of energy and charm, which is a necessity for a series whose storylines are not only implausible but, at times, not even remotely believable.
  5. Unlike the other phony "Housewives," when these L-women party, it's for real. The dialogue is gritty, funny and real.
  6. Riveting and revealing.
  7. Its newest show, Samurai Girl, is an action-packed, three-night martial arts miniseries that introduces girls to the world of Asian action flicks.
  8. It’s nice that Will Ferrell plays (a skewed) version of himself in the second episode--he was likely corralled by his former “Saturday Night Live” cohort Amy Poehler--but Welcome to Sweden succeeds on its own merits.
  9. Every character is dead on - no exaggerations, no caricatures.
  10. If you are female and under the age of 28, you may really relate to these women and their struggles. If you're over that age, you should hang in until episode three when the series takes off in a great way.
  11. The premise--and it's a good one--is a singing contest "American Idol"-style, for young singers to compete for the grand prize of a recurring role in a seven-episode arc of "Glee." And it's not some fake promo for the show with people who really have nothing to do with the show.
  12. Lots of good stuff, although much is forced.
  13. It helps to be a fan of Christopher Guest--the genius mockumentarian responsible for movies like “Best in Show” and “Waiting for Guffman”--if you’re going to love his new HBO series, Family Tree.
  14. Lots of action, lots of shoot-'em-ups and lots of big explosions that don't kill anybody. It's also lots of fun.
  15. It’s all in good fun, lets us in on the joke and--save for one dumb plot device--is well done and believable in its contextual universe.
  16. This series-in-a-series is an innovative and creative way to make TV, which I love. What would I have loved even more? A scripted series about a scary, charismatic cult leader.
  17. What does work without a doubt, however, is the chemistry among Spears, Lovato and Simon Cowell. Unfortunately, gentlemanly L.A. Reid, who carried the show last year, seemed to be as out of sync with the rest of the crew.
  18. Bad taste meets good writing.
  19. What I like about this show as opposed to the other earlier versions is that it's not simply one male or female picking from a lineup of the desperate like a slave auction. Here, the 19 insanely good-looking, mentally unstable, scantily clad, all-white (by the way) losers compete against one another.
  20. The Firm is a modern, old-fashioned lawyer show--and that's a good thing.
  21. I can't help but get an enormous kick from Bravo's new series, The Fashion Show, which is, ironically enough, a line-for-line knockoff of "Project Runway," the hit show that was sold from under them to Lifetime.
  22. While it sounds old hat, the who, what, when, where, why and how of this police procedural doesn't go the usual-suspects route. This show really keeps you guessing. And the soundtrack, by blues singer Keb'Mo, will keep you entranced.
  23. If you are a dog person, have I got a show for you. It's like dog camp but done as a reality show, Greatest American Dog.
  24. Tracking the many ways in which reality converges with fiction is one of the principal pleasures of Entourage, which otherwise explores some pretty well-worn territory in its new season.
  25. This is a series with potential.
  26. Smart, a little zany and never pandering, the show took me back to one of the best kid’s shows of the ’90s, Nickelodeon’s “The Adventures of Pete & Pete.”
  27. I don't know what's mad about this love, but CBS's new rom-com, Mad Love at least has some laughs.
  28. Allegiance takes a potentially preposterous situation and makes it provocative.
  29. God only knows where they're going with this. The producers have made Joan's father the police chief of the small city of Arcadia, but I'm praying that CBS won't turn the Almighty into some sort of cosmic crime fighter...Whatever happens, I'm inclined to give Joan of Arcadia the benefit of the doubt.

  30. Wilkinson steals the entire movie with his portrayal of Baker, playing him as a brilliant, wily political strategist.
