  1. A show that manages year after year to accomplish that rare blend of Hollywood darling and fan favorite.
  2. One of the finest TV shows ever made.
  3. The second season is as good as the first -- just different. [13 Jan 2000]

  4. Without a doubt, Homeland is the best drama on TV right now.
  5. It’s a pretty grim lot, but ever thus in the nasty, brutish world of George R.R. Martin. Regardless, it’s so good to see all of their bruised, brooding faces again.
  6. "Battlestar" is many cuts above the usual outer-space shoot-'em-up.
  7. I tend to watch "Curb Your Enthusiasm" with open-mouthed amazement... The show is a drop-dead accurate, edge-of-your-seat depiction of the minefield through which we all tread everyday in our interactions with spouses, friends, business associates and that most dreaded of all groups, total strangers.

  8. The fourth season’s new episodes feel as fresh--and misanthropic--as ever.
  9. To paraphrase one of the great ads from the glory days: Between love and Mad Men lies obsession.
  10. Although it's been described by other critics as a cop version of "The Sopranos," I don't see it. The only similarities are the fact that the lead characters are unlikely sex symbols, and on both shows you've got a bad guy with a heart somewhere in there...So why is this still any good? Because Chiklis is so good, because the writing is very good, and the cast has actors other than great-looking Gen Xers who look like they fell out of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
  11. Showtime's edgy, edge-of-your-seat series, is, bar none, the best thriller on American TV.
  12. [A] stunning French import.
  13. The acting here is first-rate, and the two adversarial cops investigating the case--Alec Hardy (David Tennant) and Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman)--despise each other just enough to create a palatable tension. The second episode is even more provocative.... Riveting.
  14. Frozen Planet [is] perhaps the single greatest accomplishment in nature TV history.
  15. Each week, the series takes on a Holmes classic, updates it, turns it on its ear and leaves you breathless.
  16. 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.
  17. The Game is worth it. Really.
  18. Orange Is the New Black is a cultural phenomenon and worthy crowd-pleaser--and is the one series everyone should watch this summer.
  19. In the first two episodes provided for preview, the formula gets the plot across with minimal confusion, although you wonder at times if all the time-shifting and multiple storytelling is really necessary...Well, maybe. Because if this show gave it to you straight, it would run the risk of becoming just another violent L.A. cop show.
  20. 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.
  21. Nothing but shocker after shocker.
  22. I tend to judge a show's worth on whether I'll come back for more; I've already watched next week's episode of "Eastbound and Down," and I'll definitely be watching to see where Kenny's Mexican journey takes him.
  23. I haven't the slightest idea what the heck I'm watching, but I've seen two of 'em now, and all I know is that two of 'em weren't enough. I wanted to watch a bunch more.
  24. Verdict: guilty--of being a guilty pleasure.
  25. It's the possibility of unlimited complications looming that make it so insanely riveting.
  26. This new 10-episode season boasts the same high quality of production that this series has always exhibited.
  27. What's missing here are the big laughs, despite Rock's clever narration.
  28. Some of the best performances seen anywhere on TV. They're all so incredible that it seems unfair to single out some and not others, but if you watch Friday Night Lights, pay close attention to Chandler, Britton and Gilford; Taylor Kitsch as beer-swilling lothario Tim Riggins; Scott Porter as the wheelchair-bound former quarterback; Brad Leland as team booster Buddy Garrity (especially him); and Jesse Plemons and Adrianne Palicki as Landry and Tyra, the school's most unlikely couple (especially them too)...Everyone on Friday Night Lights deserves an Emmy. And true to form for this great unsung show, none of them were even nominated. [5 Oct 2007, p.133]

  29. Hannibal was lauded last season for its stylized look, which is on display here. Fishburne, as usual, is solid, and I like Dancy’s interpretation of Graham (just the right amount of despair without descending into self-pity).
  30. Yes, there is a lot to love here, but too often the bad guys are standard-issue gangsters--while the women are one dimensional, naked, needy and greedy.
