  1. Here's one of the most offbeat new shows of the new season. Also one of the best. [13 Sep 2010, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  2. Fall's best new sitcom has the manic zip of Malcolm in the Middle and the diabolical humor of raising Arizona. [27 Sep 2010, p.55]
    • People Weekly
  3. Given that there's no earthly reason for Angel besides the sex appeal of David Boreanaz, it looks like a pretty good show.
  4. Kane's visions aren't done with originality, but Grammer's performance is still powerful. [27 Aug 2012, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  5. The acting is what keeps the show addictive--particularly good is Julia Stiles. [29 Nov 2010, p.44]
    • People Weekly
  6. The show needs to guard against the cutesies ... and allow both principals to do more than talk about their sex lives.
  7. But even if the clipped dialogue sometimes suggests cop-show parody, the well-constructed mysteries give Without a Trace a strong foundation.
  8. [A] rattling good series. [10 Jul 2006, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  9. House stands out on the strength of its misanthropic main character.
  10. The show feels weighed down by its own clout. [25 Sep 2006, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  11. [Now in season 2]Courtney Cox's sitcom...is a light, fast show about friends and couples who hang together, banter together and drink together. [8 Nov 2010, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  12. This is probably not a clinically accurate portrayal of an OCD sufferer, but Shalhoub's gentle earnestness keeps it from being gimmicky.
  13. Louis-Dreyfus's performance--which, like Congress, can be divided into two houses, Crackling Charm and Hysterical Ego--still drives the show, but we're getting more realistic sense of political gamesmanship. [22 Apr 2013, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  14. [A] superbly tawdry new crime series. [8 Jul 2013, p.35]
    • People Weekly
  15. It might be unwatchable if Dern, who's excellent, didn't allow Amy's laughable obtuseness to be pierced by glimmers of empathy and acceptance. [ 17 Oct 2011, p.40]
    • People Weekly
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    At this point the show may lack in si-prises, but like one of Miss Kay's lovingly prepared brisket dinners, there's pleasing comfort in its familiarity. [26 Aug 2013, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  16. Luck is a true original, a show with a tone like no other. [30 Jan 2012, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  17. A tricky show with serious potential. [5 Mar 2012, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  18. The girls, who keep breathlessly repeating the phrase "high fashion" as if it were a mantra, nonetheless behave as they always do, which is most of the fun. [13 Sep 2010, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  19. She's at her best mapping out the messy web of relationships that come with being the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and the late Eddie Fisher. [20 Dec 2010, p.44]
    • People Weekly
  20. Katie Leclerc is instantly, sunnily appealing as Daphne....Vanessa Marano is fine as the other misplaced kid, except she's a sulker and sort of a drag. [13 Jun 2011, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  21. There's always a laugh or two. [30 Jan 2012, p.44]
    • People Weekly
  22. Beautifully filmed, George Harrison: Living in the Material World is especially good on the singer-guitarist's post-Beatles life as he sought enlightenment in Eastern religions. [10 Oct 2011, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  23. Slightly ghoulish but engrossing.
  24. The badinage with his wife plays nice and easy, like Home Improvement, while that with his parents and brother across the street has more of a Seinfeldian silliness.
  25. It is still a distinctly Guest production: often poky, always charmingly whimsical and, from time to time, so astoundingly funny you seem to have shot into a distant stratosphere of pure comedy. [13 May 2013, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  26. Like The Next Generation, this show tends to be morally didactic. But also like its mother ship, Deep Space Nine is richly imagined, with good scripts and great visuals.
  27. The main plot lines are immediately involving.
  28. Gregg has a deadpan ease that makes the engine purr. And his team is good-looking and stamped with just enough personality and humor: Without killing the fun, they ground the show. [14 Oct 2013, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  29. [A] pleasurable, cheeky new crime drama. [21 Oct 2013, p.47]
