    With many clichés coming straight from romantic comedy films, A to Z gets slightly cheesy at times, but Feldman and Milioti's easy chemistry makes their banter believable and, well, downright adorable.
  1. The girls' chemistry should keep the show breakdown free. [19 Sep 2011, p.59]

  2. VanCamp goes about her business with a purse-lipped Jodie Foster earnestness that makes her hard to root for. But Stowe coos, scowls, flirts and thunders. She roils Revenge. [26 sep 2011, p.56]

  3. The show is overworked and overthought. [25 Mar 2013, p.43]

  8. The wives are overwhelmed by the prospect of an addition, but this group ]is as comfortable with the camera as the early-era Gosselins. [4 Oct 2010, p.38]
    • People Weekly
  9. The ensemble remains perfect, but the show's matter-of-fact crispness has been dulled. [22 Apr 2013, p.46]
    • People Weekly
  10. To make new fans, show more enterprise.
  11. Oh, what a tangled web Carnivále weaves–maybe too tangled for its own good.
  12. Clever writing and the delightful Melissa Joan Hart... make this unlikely plot a high schooler's witch fulfillment.
  13. If Faris is the little engine that could, Janney is the caboose along for the ride. [4 Nov 2013]
    • People Weekly
  14. Defenders at least has a sure grip on its tone. [8 Nov 2010, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  15. With its rugged leads displaying a light comic touch, the series has a fresh appeal. [3 Feb 2014, p.44]
    • People Weekly
  16. The scares are not as over-the-top as American Horror Story but more chilling because they're applied glancingly. [13 Feb 2012, p.44]

  17. Average.
  18. [Bello's] sour, tough intelligence is right on the money. [3 Oct 2011, p.45]

  23. The second half builds steadily and surely toward a potential meet-and-greet with the apocalypse. [12 Dec 2005, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  24. Cases piddle away as everyone hashes out deals at a conference table. Realistic, perhaps, but quite the buzzkill. [20 Aug 2012, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  25. A satisfyingly meaty drama. [11 Jun 2007, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  26. Unlike Daily anchorman Jon Stewart, he's not only ridiculing the headlines but mocking himself. This is closer to acting than comedy, and it may be tougher. But Stephen Colbert is a great American and deserves our support. And suppore. [7 Nov 2005, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  27. The show's tone [is] vulgar, jolly and winning. [16 Jul 2012, p.39]
