  1. The show is still crazily entertaining. [11 Jun 2012, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. [A] pleasurable, cheeky new crime drama. [21 Oct 2013, p.47]
    • People Weekly
  5. This new series is a bold military thriller. [8 Oct 2012, p.60]
    • People Weekly
  6. 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
  7. Set on the eve of the 1936 abdication crisis, it has melodramatic bustle and tender affection for its characters--of all classes. [18 Apr 2011, p.46]
    • People Weekly
  8. Luckily Blood is still buoyed by its weird, Gothic zest and the performers all operate with the same vibe of ripe sexuality and restrained camp. [4 Jul 2011, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  9. For all its "look what we can get away with" grandstanding and scalpel-sharp wit, Nip/Tuck succeeds best when it deftly pierces the heart.
  10. Gilmore creator Amy Sherman-Palladino gives her actors a zip drive's worth of dialogue....Foster's got the mouth--and charm--to pull it off. [18 Jun 2012, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  11. The history behind the story is tremendous--you feel its pulse. [5 Aug 2013, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  12. It's a light, clever performance. But Episodes never convinces us this is really Hollywood. [17 Jan 2011, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  13. A pallid imitation of The Larry Sanders Show, the series works best when its real-life guests are funny.
  14. Comparisons to The Iron Lady, a sloppy movie that has Meryl Streep in roaring good form, are inevitable. Is Game Change better? You betcha. [5 Mar 2012, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  15. A lovely piece of work. [6 May 2013, p.49]
    • People Weekly
  16. [A] highly satisfying update. [8 Oct 2012, p.57]
    • People Weekly
  17. This show has a light, charming sense of the ridiculous. [19 Mar 2007, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  18. There's always a laugh or two. [30 Jan 2012, p.44]
    • People Weekly
  19. About Face addresses some deeper implications--Gia Carangi's early death is a cautionary tale--but knows better than to over do it. [6 Aug 2012, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  20. The one thing lacking is writing that goes beyond fondness into truly funny. [17 Feb 2014, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  21. Very few reality shows generate real suspense and sadness at the moment of elimination, but this one does. [20 Jun 2011, p.53]
    • People Weekly
  22. The CW's best show since Gossip Girl.... it has a forthright narrative seriousness, a respect for the gobbledy-gook that makes up any superhero's backstory--and a game cast performing with the correct degree of seriousness. [19 Nov 2012, p.35]
    • People Weekly
  23. The series nails everything that NBC's Smash failed to do with the world of Broadway theater last year, providing a rollicking backstage look at the crazy, temperamental people engaged in artistic expression.
  24. The high school stories are tighter-focused, and the Manhattan ones breathe with Broadway romanticism. [5 Nov 2012, p.42]
    • People Weekly
  25. At its best, the show is outrageous and hilarious at once.
  26. The quickened pulse is a plus: The violence registers as sharp, stinging slaps. [11 Dec 2006, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  27. Horror isn't my thing, but this is pretty good. [7 Nov 2005, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  28. [The first episode] is packed with potential. It is fast-paced, funny, touching, romantic and surprising. Please note that we did not add "realistic."
  29. Flawlessly done, but a tough sell. [2 Dec 2013, p.50]
    • People Weekly
  30. This is Dallas with out all the barbecue sauce, a soap about dynastic Texans that feels closer to Friday Night Lights in its understated leanness. [27 Sep 2010, p.54]
