  1. The Sopranos remains a unique combination of brains, wit and raw power.
  2. Paxton's supported by a vast cast of vivid characters waging holy battle while chasing the almighty dollar. [11 Jan 2010, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  3. A larger, wholly engrossing story about crime syndicates and hit men. [21 Apr 2014, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  4. A looser show [than The Office], another comedy of frustration, but with a feckless sweetness (which is exactly what My Name Is Earl lacks). [17 Oct 2005, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  5. Larry David's sitcom remains an awe-inspiring (and hilarious) exercise in comedic extremes of chaos and control.
  6. Nashville is the best new show of the fall. [29 Oct 2012, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  7. [A] superbly tawdry new crime series. [8 Jul 2013, p.35]
    • People Weekly
  8. Remains a winner.
  9. The show falls prey to a faint preciousness in the voiceover narration from its correspondents and host Glass. They overarticulate the ironies instead of just letting you watch. Which you should do. Watch. [26 Mar 2007, p.37]

  10. Mirren is once again marvelous.
  11. The relationship of saint to sinner has seldom been so moving. [26 Feb 2007, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  12. These are almost closer to short stories than sitcom episodes--and yes, they're fantastic. [23 Jul 2012, p.38]
    • People Weekly
  13. This could be the fall's finest drama. [9 Oct 2006, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  14. The heartbreak here--especially the cases of poor children who died of "dust pneumonia"--is tremendous. [26 Nov 2012, p.45
    • People Weekly
  15. Baseball is a monumental achievement, perhaps too monumental for TV. For fans, it is a sumptuous feast. But its 18 1/2-hour length will daunt those without an acute interest in the game.
  16. This is adult entertainment in the very best possible sense. [7 Oct 2013, p.47]
    • People Weekly
  17. There's event television, and there's Game of Thrones. [8 Apr 2013, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  18. [Homicide]... continues to be the best drama—-not just cop drama—-on TV.
  19. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is fine as it is. Tell your DVR to book it. [9 Dec 2013, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  20. NBC hasn't had a show this impressive since the first season of Heroes. [6 Feb 2012, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  21. 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]
    • People Weekly
  22. Awesomely clever, it's the Inception of sitcoms. In season 2 the show has preserved its core concept of friendships in a community-college study group while piling on daringly odd jobs. [6 Dec 2010, p.49]
    • People Weekly
  23. It's searching, witty, lacerating, poetic, profound—and, yes, overstuffed.
  24. Modern Family flows along as seamlessly perfect as it did last year. [25 Oct 2010, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  25. Sunny is Punch and Judy for our time: invigoratingly primal entertainment.[9 Sep 2013, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  26. Beneath the grit, this is a tale of chivalry. [31 Jan 2011, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  27. Predictably awesome. [27 May 2013, p.42]
    • People Weekly
  28. Parks, in a sense, is Li'l Sebastian: shaggy, small-boned, charming and lovably stupid. [31 Jan 2011, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  29. It's a raw, ironic, occasionally touching comedy of post-millennial manners. [23 Apr 2012, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  30. 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]
