  5. It takes awhile to adjust to the dissonance, but the muted naturalism of the superb cast draws us in. [9 May 2011, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  6. The comedy here, as with Elaine, comes from watching Louis-Dreyfus's sophisticated, furiously sharp timing applied to a character who has the intelligence of a finch. [30 Apr 2012, p.35]

    • People Weekly
  9. Matthew Weiner has advanced the show far enough into the '60s that its fundamental philosophical question begins to generate its own oppressive suspense. [15 Apr 2013]
    • People Weekly
  10. [Driver's] tone gets under the skin. As does the show. [19 Mar 2007, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  11. The show's many subplots are handled clumsily, but these two [Grammer & Nielsen] are too good to pass up. 25 Oct 2011, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  12. Given the amounts of sumptuous scenery to chew on, the acting is restrained, even if the gore and sex are not. [28 May 2012, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  13. 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
  14. Olyphant plays this laconic, loping lawman with a smiling minimalism that makes Givens both iconic and contemporary.
    • People Weekly

    • People Weekly
  17. Andy's humiliations as a minor celebrity aren't quite as funny as was his earlier shame at being a nobody, but as a satire of showbiz vanity, Extras can still be described as (what else?) stellar. [29 Jan 2007, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  18. The first episodes are very promising, full of feints, fibs, and a big, fat shock. [16 Jul 2012, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  19. The show has the makings of great--what else can I say?--escapist entertainment. [23 Jan 2012, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  20. The show's tone [is] vulgar, jolly and winning. [16 Jul 2012, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  21. With sharp camera work, pulsating music and no tedious, gimme-an-Emmy closeups, it's like CSI at warp speed. [4 Sep 2006, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  22. What hasn't changed and what matters, is Mireille Enos's sodden, unshakable integrity as a detective who could outlast a pack of bloodhounds. [10 Jun 2013, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  23. Challenging but engrossing.
    • People Weekly
  24. 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
  25. The girls' chemistry should keep the show breakdown free. [19 Sep 2011, p.59]
