  1. If you can get past the many face of Jeremy Irons as Rodrigo Borgia/Pope Alexander VI, in Showtime's lush and luscious historical series The Borgias, you're in for a full-out good time.
  2. The acting is terrific (by all concerned--there's no weak link), the writing stays true to the spirit of the show and nothing feels forced. That's the mark of a winner.
  3. Spacey plays Underwood with his usual unctuous aplomb, and Claire’s crazy controlled persona is on full display, but with private moments of longing and neediness that are wonderful to behold.
  4. The only chink in the series' armour is the miscasting of Polly Walker as the evil Atia. She overacts so much, that it'll make you ache for Sian Phillips' long-ago portrayal as Livia in "I Claudius." While Rome's not as great as that old series, it's still deserves a helluva Hail Caesar!
  5. Where most of the new shows I've been forced to sit through lately do just about everything wrong, Gilmore Girls gets most of the fundamentals right, especially the acting and writing. [5 Oct 2000, p.95]

  6. While this Sunday's premiere gets the season started a bit slowly, Episode Two is the rarest kind of TV show there is - one that you hope will never end.
  7. An all-star cast--Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard, Shailene Woodley and Laura Dern, all of whom live up to their advance billing--and an absorbing story (courtesy of TV vet David E. Kelley) that will keep you guessing each and every step of the way.
  8. [A] gorgeously somber BBC America miniseries.
  9. The acting is as good as you'll see on TV (take a hard look at the genius of RJ Mitte, who really does have CP). And the script and plot are as out-there as creator/writer/producer Vince Gilligan's other series, "The X-Files."
  10. Huge, a new series about overweight teens at a weight-loss camp, starts tonight, and I couldn't be happier if I'd just discovered calorie-free potato chips.
  11. The art direction, acting and incredible sets are as breathtaking as the massive scope of the series. A bit slow at first, but it's a grabber once you get into it.
  12. The Affair is told from two points of view, Noah’s and then Alison’s, and memory being the imperfect mechanism that it is, their versions of the story don’t match, in tantalizing ways.
  13. It's a no-holds-barred (pun intended) look at the trying life and good times of Freddie.
  14. Happily for you, when you see what each of those truly terrible characters is up to this year, your hair will stand on end like an FDLS lady with a sugar-water-stiffened 'do. It's so much more satisfying than a pizza and a night at the Bada Bing
  15. Thorne: Sleepyhead, has enough twists, turns, red herrings and multi-layered narrative to keep you couch-bound for its entire two hours.
  16. The third-season premiere [of] Homeland delivers a strong episode that repairs much of the damage done last season to this excellent show.
  17. Clear History is so funny it made me want to order up some Palestinian chicken.
  18. There are a whole lot of “Holy s--t!” moments, but it’s very real and astoundingly raw--without once giving you the idea these are show-off correspondents with a makeup artist and clean clothes.
  19. The writing is so good, so clean and understated that it's a pleasure to behold.
  20. Bobulova is delightful to watch, playing the younger Coco as winsome, stubborn, independent and gifted. MacLaine, seen always with a cigarette between two fingers, has less screen time, but she commands every minute in which she appears.
  21. If they can maintain that level of intelligence, then John Doe stands a chance of becoming the kind of special series - like "The Fugitive" and "The Prisoner" - that people will talk about for years to come.
  22. Catching Escobar then becomes an exciting and suspenseful story arc, and makes Narcos the first cool show of the new season.
  23. If "Runaway" is a harbinger of things to come, it, er, harbinges very well indeed!
  24. A really good, really weird show.
  25. Fallon made it clear that he’s fashioned The Tonight Show in his own image--so fasten your seat belts for what promises to be a fun, fresh late-night ride.
  26. Sci Fi has done once more what the networks seem very often to have forgotten how to do: make watching TV really, really fun again. ... It's fun in the way that "Ghostbusters" was fun - funny, silly, scary. [13 Jul 2001]

  27. Like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," which also has mined adolescent alienation for ratings gold, Roswell promises to be wise, witty and watchable beyond its ostensible years. [6 Oct 1999, p.91]

  28. "Underbelly" has got some good, (no - I won't say "belly") laughs, but you've got to wonder what happens if the show's a success.
  29. On the surface, Burns and Novick strive for impartiality, but there's an undercurrent of cynicism throughout. And that's a good thing.
  30. The injuries are extreme, the dancing gorgeous, the dancers young and beautiful, and the slogan the best on TV: "Blood, Sweat and Tutus."
