  1. What would you get if you combined the brains behind "The Usual Suspects" and "The X-Men" with the writer of "Quiz Show" and "Homicide: Life On the Streets"? Aside from a lotta smarts, you'd get House, the best new show since "Lost." [16 Nov 2004, p.91]

  2. An outstanding documentary.
  3. Don't believe the hype. "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" is not the best new show of the fall season. It's a pretty darned good one, but not the best one.
  4. By the second part of this excellent thriller you won't know who are the bad guys and who are the really bad guys, which is how it's supposed to be.

    Regardless of its flaws, Grease is a reason to look forward to the next round of live musicals on TV. When it finally found its stride during “Born to Hand jive,” which was among the finest staged sequences of any live musical telecast so far, the hate-watching subsided and suddenly we were all back in high school again.
  5. Great acting, writing and direction.
  6. The best detective show to come along in, well, decades...It is so clever, that it makes you remember how good TV used to be - and still can be when they use actors who didn't train at Ford Models. And when they hire writers who can actually put two words together...I promise you, you've never seen anything quite like it. [11 July 2002, p.73]

  7. There's never a light moment to let you reflect on the violence that you've just witnessed, which brings "Brotherhood" back to the level of every not-great gangster flick that's ever been.
  8. 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]

  9. 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.
  10. The script, by Berlanti, Ali Adler and Andrew Kreisberg, is a by-the-numbers affair that offers the character’s origin story up front, introduces the villain at just the right moment, throws in the requisite unexpected complication at the three-quarter mark and saves one twist for the final moment. Yet, there are some redeeming, clever touches, primarily whenever Kara (Melissa Benoist) has a scene with Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), her obnoxious media-mogul boss.
  11. If the "opening statements" don't have you on the floor calling for a back brace--because you've thrown your spine out from laughing--then you are either in a coma or watching a different channel.
  12. It's mentally exhausting, at least in tonight's opener, to figure out exactly what the heck is going on here, and in which reality we're placed at any given moment.
  13. It helps to be a fan of Christopher Guest--the genius mockumentarian responsible for movies like “Best in Show” and “Waiting for Guffman”--if you’re going to love his new HBO series, Family Tree.
  14. This engagingly uncomfortable series is not like anything you've seen before.
  15. They've added a new element that makes it something I can finally (I'm sorry) sink my teeth into. They've added politics as blood sport.
  16. In many ways, iZombie echoes its noir predecessor, “Veronica Mars,” right down to the tiny (hoodied) protagonist who frequently provides wry narration. But the show loses some steam when Liv begins taking on the characteristics, and memories, of various victims of foul play on whom she’s dined.
  17. Aside from the gratuitous sexual stuff, Awkward is a really good, funny, fun show.
  18. [Spader’s] magnetic, chewing on the scenery so much that you can’t look away from him.
  19. This Traffic is a lot more realistic than the movie. [26 Jan 2004]

  20. Once you get past the stupid stuff, such as the sex-goddess submarine tech designer and the equally gorgeous sub's Chief Navigator, Grace (Daisy Betts) there's something pretty damned good here.
  21. Titled Carrier, this series from Mel Gibson's Icon Productions might be the most candid look at everyday life on board a U.S. warship in wartime that has ever been filmed.
  22. If you were worried about your favorite show's favorite character's replacement, rest assured that Fishburne's Langston is different enough to walk easily in Grissom's paper lab shoes.
  23. All told, the graphics and the easy-to-follow, fun storylines are sure to entertain the show's easily distracted target audience.
  24. 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!
  25. Sinatra: All or Nothing at All is a fascinating look at a man who wielded a lot power--obviously too much--but whose artistic legacy thankfully will prevail over his baser interests.
  26. For reasons too obvious to bother with, NBC managed to take a really terrific and fun premiere and somehow let it morph over the following episodes into just another take-it-or-leave-it show.
  27. I'm happy to report that this season, there's More Blood! More Torture! More Killing! and More Intrigue! than last season.
  28. This season of “Curb” may not set the world on fire, but there will always be that one unbelievable thing Larry says that will make you shake your head as you laugh, really hard.
  29. The Tudors, Showtime's all-of-the-above series, comes roaring back Sunday night as fresh as its first season.
