  1. This haunting New Zealand miniseries boasts a strong, tense performance from Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss as a detective, but it's very much the work of director Jane Campion. [25 Mar 2013, p.44]
  2. There's event television, and there's Game of Thrones. [8 Apr 2013, p.41]
  3. NBC's best new drama since forever. [15 Apr 2013]
  4. Predictably awesome. [27 May 2013, p.42]
  5. Director Steven Soderbergh's Candelabra is one of the smartest, tartest examples I've ever seen of that soupy genre, the Hollywood biopic. [27 May 2013, p.39]
  6. [A] cool yet intensely emotional British crime series. [24 Jun 2013, p.40]

    Shandling's laid-back comic style dovetails with the dry writing, creating a series that's the clear victor in the talk show wars.
  7. The best ensemble cop drama since Hill Street Blues.
  8. Strikingly shot, wonderfully cast, this tough, taut, atmospheric show is the season's best new series.
  9. Stylish and well-acted, this is the rare show in which commercials hit with a jolt, awakening you from the program's potent spell.
  10. With its creepy soundtrack, terrifying visuals and ingenious plot twists, Millennium is far and away the best new show of the year.
  11. An instant classic.
  12. As Larry, Shandling raises banality into an art form; he is consistently hilarious whether blissfully watching his own videos or reacting to a bad review.
  13. Critics justly extolled The Sopranos for its brilliant blend of compelling drama and mordant humor, and the first three episodes of 2000 contain no signs of slippage.
  14. The Sopranos is better than ever.
  15. Larry David's sitcom remains an awe-inspiring (and hilarious) exercise in comedic extremes of chaos and control.
  16. [A] superbly tawdry new crime series. [8 Jul 2013, p.35]
  17. It's beautifully constructed, cleverly fitted with red herrings and capacious enough to house a community of suspects. The emotional payoff is sensational, and so is the acting. [12 Aug 2013]
  18. Queen delivers the basic goods (intrigue, sex) , but the only vivid character is Margaret Beaufort, mom of the future Henry VII. She's played by Amanda Hale with startling neuritic fervor. [12 Aug 2013]
  19. Sunny is Punch and Judy for our time: invigoratingly primal entertainment.[9 Sep 2013, p.41]
  20. Arguably you shouldn't miss any of The Hollow Crown. But the one you're commanded to watch is Richard II. [23 Sep 2013]
  21. This is adult entertainment in the very best possible sense. [7 Oct 2013, p.47]
  22. [A] mesmerizingly eerie French series set in a mountain community. [4 Nov 2013]
  23. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is fine as it is. Tell your DVR to book it. [9 Dec 2013, p.43]
  24. Very little happens in the first three hours of this anthology crime series, yet it's absolutely riveting. [20 Jan 2014]
  25. [It] promises to be a dizzyingly clever season 2. [3 Mar 2014, p.39]
  26. Tyson elevates this character into a prism through which passes the span of existence.... You will be sighing for days. [10 Mar 2014, p.48]
  27. It's educational, kid-oriented and fun, and Tyson us confidently smooth popularizer of science. [17 Mar 2014]
  28. The show is infernally good. [17 Mar 2014]
  29. The first three episodes of season 4 grab the wide-flung stories of this epic and assemble them into a crackling narrative. [7 Apr 2014, p.41]
