  1. Somehow the premiere hour fills in all this background without getting lost and--more importantly--with sincerity and sensitivity. [10 Jun 2013, p.50]

  2. Shatner has a ball playing a paragon of inappropriate behavior and lends the egocentric character a surprising touch of poignancy in his rare moments of introspection. But it's going to be tricky finding the right balance between Shore and Crane while allowing each to stay in touch with his inner devil.
  3. [Driver's] tone gets under the skin. As does the show. [19 Mar 2007, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  4. The tenuousness of the situation, and the underlying hope for emotional growth by all, makes for a touching hour. [25 Jan 2010, p.43]

  5. Soul Food is inconsistent, but it whets the appetite.
  6. Taut and stylish.
  7. Peta Wilson, an Australian actress with the harsh blonde hair, snub nose and oversize, depthless blue eyes of your average mass-produced doll, makes a sexy, amusing Nikita.
  8. There's nothing subtle about the physical comedy in the pilot, as Bette visits a cosmetic surgeon and takes a stab at strenuous exercise. But "broad" is a term Midler has always been comfortable with.

    If you automatically expect a new HBO series to be edgy or innovative, you'll be disappointed in this one. It's basically just a sitcom—but it has the advantage of being funny.
  9. In the premiere of this likably preposterous new show, [Chloe] learns that these changes are embedded in her DNA and can be traced back millennia. [20 Jun 2011, p.58]

  10. It's a gripper. [25 Sep 2006, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  11. Paxton's supported by a vast cast of vivid characters waging holy battle while chasing the almighty dollar. [11 Jan 2010, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  12. [A] sure-footed legal drama. [2 Sep 2013]
    • People Weekly
  13. The pace sags, but the accumulation of sacrificed lives gives it all a haunting sorrow. [4 Jun 2012, p.44]
    • People Weekly
  14. In season 2 this fluffy spy caper about gorgeous CIA operative Annie Walker is starting to deliver on the seductive fun promised by Piper Perabo's sly, flirtatious smile in the opening credits. [25 Jul 2011, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  15. It actually improves upon the successful formula by downplaying any romantic entanglements, which, at times, have weighed down the leads of Rhimes's other shows.
  16. The humor has a light, convivial burble. [26 Mar 2012, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  17. As in season 1, the acting is rich and lusty, with no costume-drama fustiness. [15 Jan 2007, p.33]
    • People Weekly
  18. The show is fueled with so much soap-operatic hot air that it takes off. [26 Sep 2011, p.54]
    • People Weekly
  19. One of the fall's best new dramas. [26 Nov 2012, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  20. Girl has a surprisingly casual sense of humor and Anna Silk is physically just right in the lead role. [13 Feb 2012, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  21. The show promises to be sexy fun. [6 Sep 2010, p.47]
    • People Weekly
  22. Chef remains the model for cook-off competitions, balancing casual insight into culinary art with psychological snapshots of the aspiring chefs. This recipe can't be improved on.
    • People Weekly
  23. The animated duo have returned, as dumb--and hilarious--as ever. [31 Oct 2011, p.36]
    • People Weekly
  24. The show is cluttered with cutesy sidekicks, including Gabourey Sidibe as a student and John Benjamin Hickey as Cathy's homeless brother. But Linney's a big deal. [30 Aug 2010, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  25. The show is likable, in a channel-surfing way: So-So Rosie. [31 Oct 2011, p.36]
    • People Weekly
  26. It's the best new sitcom of the fall. [16 Oct 2006, p.39]
    • People Weekly

    • People Weekly
  28. The show works and it's fun. [12 Nov 2012, p.43]
