  1. The comedy never quite lifts into giddiness, but there are lots of solid, unexpected laughs. And isn't that cause for celebration? [26 Apr 2010, p.40]

  2. 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
  3. This parody of bad vintage miniseries is asinine--it's supposed to be--and from time to time hilarious. [13 Jan 2014, p.49]
  4. The second half builds steadily and surely toward a potential meet-and-greet with the apocalypse. [12 Dec 2005, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  5. The show is a bit of a junk heap--Fringe, Mission:Impossible and Death Becomes Her are in the pile--but it's a real adventure. [11 Jul 2011, p.34]
    • People Weekly
  6. Preachers' Daughters, focusing on three families headed by ministers, has its hearts in the tight place. [18 Mar 2013, p.42]
    • People Weekly
  7. What keeps it from being exploitative--just--is the sense that these kids know such dangerous exhilaration won't, can't, lead to the happiness they're looking for. [31 Jan 2011, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  8. Two tense, tricky, fine performances [22 Jul 2013]

  9. The show works and it's fun. [12 Nov 2012, p.43]

  10. O'Loughlin's an impressively taciturn, tense presence" You get the sense that McGarrett could go to a luau and still experience it as a hurt locker. As McGarrett's sidekick Danno, Scott Caan is the opposite: all quick, bantam energy. He steals scenes as coolly as surfers catch waves. [27 Sep 2010, p.53]

  11. This is close to sitcom, but the show's skeleton is strong enough to bear it. [28 Nov 2011, p.62]

  14. It gets an unexpected freshness from a young cast. [5 Mar 2007, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  15. This is a carefully assembled, emotionally attuned drama about obese teens stuck in a summer weight-loss camp.
    • People Weekly
  16. This could grow into a show of more than ordinary interest. [28 Nov 2011, p.57]
    • People Weekly
  17. 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]
    • People Weekly
  18. History's first scripted series is a headlong tumble into an irresistible and surprisingly neglected genre. [18 Mar 2013, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  19. The show is still crazily entertaining. [11 Jun 2012, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  20. If sparks (and ratings) weren't flying, what matters most id Delany's satisfyingly forthright portrayal of a woman who trusts her intellect and instinct. [18 Mar 2013, p.42]
    • People Weekly
  21. [A] rattling good series. [10 Jul 2006, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  22. This doesn't have the stiletto kick of the CW's Nikita, but it's frothy, sexy, relaxed--a brief, all-expense-paid vacation. [27 Sep 2010, p.55]
    • People Weekly
  23. Flawlessly done, but a tough sell. [2 Dec 2013, p.50]
    • People Weekly
  24. Cove is exactly What it aspires to be--uncynical, lulling and sweet. [12 Aug 2013]
    • People Weekly
  25. Of the large, nicely peppered cast, I especially like Vergara, who has some of the vamping yumminess of a Catherine Zeta-Jones. [8 Jan 2007, p.35]
    • People Weekly
  26. 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
  27. The talent of the cast, the overall quality of the writing and the genuine New York City atmosphere should compensate for an occasional lapse in judgment.
  28. The show has a very sure grip on how these minor events, accompanied by small satisfactions, play out in a household of two middle-aged parents, two teenage kids and one inscrutable 9-year-old. [13 Dec 2010, p.46]
    • People Weekly
  29. The jokes hop all over the place but the show, like Chloe, is refreshingly wild. [16 Apr 2012, p.49]
    • People Weekly
  30. This provocatively, almost boisterously violent thriller bolts into action with a clever premise and sustains it with good, unexpected jolts. [28 Jan 2013, p.43]
