  1. 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.
  2. The best new show this season. [5 Aug 2005]

  3. Even though we all know what happens, somehow in the hands of these magnificent women, you'll be wishing and hoping for a different ending.
  4. Its scripts - always among the finest on TV - are even stronger this time around.
  5. If you check out Mad Men tonight, I guarantee you'll be back next week.
  6. It looks like AMC is three-for-three with their newest original drama, Rubicon, a throwback espionage thriller that takes place in the present--if the present were more like the 1970s than the 2000s.
  7. 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.
  8. A wall-to-wall weepfest.
  9. Not only is it really well thought out, but the good-looking kids in the show can actually act.
  10. Unlike a few characters in seasons one and two whose lives I just wasn't interested in, I won't be skipping any therapy sessions this season. They are all fascinating.
  11. A show that manages year after year to accomplish that rare blend of Hollywood darling and fan favorite.
  12. Treme is like Cajun food--it's spicy, it's weird and it's good, but it takes a while to appreciate.
  13. 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.
  14. You'll be happy to know that at least as far as the first two episodes go (90 -minute season premiere this Sunday night), the show is better than ever--which would have seemed impossible.
  15. There aren’t many protagonists here, but that’s not the point; you don’t watch House of Cards for its uplifting message, but rather to see how much more Spacey, Wright, Kelly et al. can plumb the depths of emotional depravity.
  16. Sounds boring, but it's anything but.
  17. The series seamlessly moves between the horrors of war and the gentility of life in the show's titular 100-room manor.
  18. This six-part series is so layered and unexpected that nothing follows a tried-and-true formula.... This is great TV.
  19. It's the possibility of unlimited complications looming that make it so insanely riveting.
  20. To paraphrase one of the great ads from the glory days: Between love and Mad Men lies obsession.
  21. A true-life movie so good, so well-written and yet sleazy enough to satisfy even the cheesiest viewers among us.
  22. I just finished watching screener episodes of Romano's new show, Men Of A Certain Age, which he created with "Everybody Loves Raymond" writer Mike Royce, and I'm blown away.
  23. It is so crisp and clean and the clarity is so great that you will definitely forget that what you are watching is real.
  24. As profane as "Deadwood" and as profound as "The Sopranos," the series strikes every right chord.
  25. An intriguing, well-done documentary.
  26. 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.
  27. 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.
  28. 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.
  29. 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]

  30. I will tell you that Lange and Barrymore deserve Emmys as does the production, which is so authentic you can see the real silk char meuse oozing off socialite shoulders.
