  1. If you love English mysteries, and love the old Inspector Morse, you will love young inspector Morse more.
  2. 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.

  3. This is the funniest TV show I've ever seen. It might also be the best comedy series ever made, period. [2 Jan 2004]

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

  5. An outstanding documentary.
  6. No pair of actors on any other show, new or old, on any network is as pleasurable to behold as these two. [1 Oct 2004]

  7. 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.
  8. I laughed so much, I'm sure I hurt something, maybe in my back, or maybe in my front. [16 July 2004, p.121]

  9. After watching the 10-hour Band of Brothers, I'm so drained by the intensity of what I have just beheld that I'm ready to declare this World War II miniseries the finest piece of work ever produced for television. [7 Sept 2001, p.117]

  10. 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]

  11. One of the many excellent things about Downton Abbey is the variety of rich female characters creator Fellowes has fashioned.
  12. Unlike almost all other shows, Nip/Tuck doesn't give you cliffhangers and episodes that lead up to finales - with this show, every episode is as good as a season finale. And as shocking. Number 15 blade, please!
  13. In an age when TV is quickly going the way of all idiots, a show like this is a gift...I watched three episodes and can't wait to see more! more! more!

  14. 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.
  15. This is a 12-week 24, so loyal fans can expect twice the action in half the time. You won’t want to miss a minute.
  16. The best new network show of the season...It's bright, it's dark, it's stylized, it's realistic - in short, I haven't been this enthusiastic about a dramatic network show since "CSI" and haven't been as happy with an ABC show since "Alias."
  17. This show is genuinely ingenious, and hilariously outrageous - not to mention courageous. Plenty of people will find Chappelle's Show offensive - but then again, whenever you do something completely new, it's bound to offend somebody. In this case, it will offend a lot of somebodies. [22 Jan 2003, p.71]

  18. It is very well acted, it's got plot twists that rival the best soaps, and the writing improves with each episode (even though they crib some of its best lines directly from the British series)...I'm hooked. [1 Dec 2000, p.106]

  19. ABC is as unworthy of "Bob" as it is in desperate need of it - and clueless about how to support and promote it. [4 Aug 1998, p.78]

  20. Not only an important series, but a darned good, action-packed one.
  21. Kretschmann... delivers one of the finest performances seen on TV this year.
  22. "Daniel" is not that controversial, but is really pretty damned, oops, darned good.
  23. It's excellent on every level.
  24. Huge fun and - if at all possible - almost as nerve-wracking as "Idol."
  25. "Huff" is one of the best dramas on TV and easily the best one airing currently on pay cable.
  26. The writing is so good, so clean and understated that it's a pleasure to behold.
  27. It is no small feat to pull off the trick of interweaving so many characters and storylines, but the producers of "Six Degrees"... have accomplished it with admirable smoothness for a series that is just getting under way.
  28. If "Runaway" is a harbinger of things to come, it, er, harbinges very well indeed!
  29. While tonight's premiere episode is good, the show really sprouts wings and flies in episode two.
  30. "Dexter" is a proficiently produced crime drama. Its best feature is its star, Michael C. Hall, who applies just the right touch to playing the nice, polite serial killer who lives next door.
