  1. Elba, fortunately, has a determined clenched jaw and wide shoulders, and he easily carries the entire evening, which runs nearly three hours.
  2. The CW under the direction of McG (does anybody have a full name anymore?) has made a fresh, terrific and terrifically silly Nikita.
  3. [An] intensive and exhaustive new documentary series by Ken Burns bowing Sunday night on PBS.
  4. Giamatti has one of his best roles as Rhoades, a kinky avenger who will not compromise his principles even if it means sending a widower with two children to prison. At first, Lewis seems miscast as Axelrod. We really do not believe that he’s the guy who grew up in The Bronx, and his presence begs the question whether any New York-born actors were considered for the role. Still, Lewis is such a good actor, with a sleek, flinty edge that gives him a believable authority.
  5. Piven and Dillon, of course, steal every scene. That you already know. But Caan and Coates manage to give two classic Hollywood stereotypes such real flesh and bones, that you'll wish that Season 8 was the precursor to Season 9.
  6. Quirky, fun, [and] smart (literally).
  7. High School Confidential is an illuminating documentary series more in the tradition of director Michael Apted's series of films, starting with "Seven Up!," that have been tracing the lives of its subjects since 1964.
  8. So, two quantum physi cists walk into a bar and one says to the other, "It's 10 p.m. Do you know what time it is?" If you love that joke, or if you even understand that joke, have I got a fifth season for you.
  9. Girls may not be something you ever want to see if you're not a 20-something-year-old woman living on the edge of disaster at all times. But if it is--and you are, too--you'll be happy to know that it still raw.
  10. If you love "Strike Back," you'll devour Hunted.
  11. I have a sneaking suspicion that, over its next four installments, The Hour will ratchet-up the drama and intrigue and retain the excellence it's achieved thus far.
  12. USA's newest series, Necessary Roughness is a charming and clever dramedy.
  13. Even when the production is heavy-handed, the cast, led by Timothy Hutton and Felicity Huffman, contributes enough good performances to make the story worth watching.
  14. The premiere is actually very good. Of course, it would be a whole lot better if there were a new investigation into a new crime.
  15. Suspend all disbelief, pretend the really, really offensive laugh track doesn't exist, disregard the giant slabs of ham offered up by Jensen and Parham, and enjoy the chemistry between Elfman and Foster.
  16. When Rosie's on, she actually is hilarious. Welcome back.
  17. Yes, "1 vs 100" is fun, but in reality, it's just a new take on an old, old game.
  18. Sienna Miller [is] halfway believable but missing what Hitchcock called "the volcano inside." Jones, however, is spectacular.
  19. Push Girls is more "Sex and the City" than "Real Housewives"--and more real than they've been--at least up until now.
  20. The pacing is quick, the plotline interesting and there’s even a touch of Walter White/“Breaking Bad”-type humor (read: dark) courtesy of Cranston. And with a supporting cast featuring Margo Martindale (“The Americans,” “The Good Wife”) and Peter Gerety (“Mercy Street,” “Public Morals”), Sneaky Pete is off to an auspicious start.
  21. Though the miniseries represents a compressed and not entirely accurate history, it is moving enough to remind us of the sacrifices made by Adams and a great many other people to form a republic against almost impossible odds.
  22. Public Morals gets better as the activities of the Irish Mob become more ominous and the show represents an overall advance for TNT.
  23. When I was watching the first three episodes of "Heroes" provided by NBC, I couldn't wait for Hiro's scenes, which is not to say you should dismiss the rest of the characters on "Heroes."
  24. Yes, there's a heavy hand in the schmaltz department, what with the dead mother and the wounded beasts and all (Hey! It's Africa after all!) but it's not so heavy that it's annoyingly cloying. At least it worked for me.
  25. In three years, Rowling went from welfare mother to one of the richest women in Great Britain, with 400 million books in print. If you've ever been a single mom and couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel, this is the perfect movie for you.
  26. Some half-hour segments work spectacularly well and some don't. Like real life, I guess. But even the ones that don't work so well are very interesting.
  27. While Carell is sometimes guilty of overselling his character's eccentricities, his exuberance is offset by a laidback cast - including John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and Rainn Wilson (of "Six Feet Under") - whose deadpan reactions to their boss make for some of this show's best moments.

  28. The unwavering, insistent sincerity of Signed, Sealed, and its tearjerking final acts, are hard to resist, despite often being served up in greeting-card platitudes.
  29. [A] new and intriguing Western.
  30. Tinsley turns out to be the least interesting of her horrible crew. She pales in horribleness next to her friends, J.P. Calderon, an accused purse lifter who throws a glass at a woman and his sworn enemy, rich girl Jules Kirby.
