  1. So far the show is biting, funny, touching and surprising. In short, it's an absolute delight, and possibly even better than the landmark first season.
  2. Entertaining, though short of super.
  3. As police superintendent Teresa Colvin, Jennifer Beals gives a revelatory, no-nonsense performance that should make Tom Selleck's mustache bristle with envy....This should be lots of fun. [7 Feb 2011, p.39]

  4. [A] delicious over-the-top comedy. [2 Oct 2006, p.45]

  5. 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]
    • People Weekly
  6. Kane's visions aren't done with originality, but Grammer's performance is still powerful. [27 Aug 2012, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  7. Given that there's no earthly reason for Angel besides the sex appeal of David Boreanaz, it looks like a pretty good show.
  8. Here's one of the most offbeat new shows of the new season. Also one of the best. [13 Sep 2010, p.48]

  9. The show needs to guard against the cutesies ... and allow both principals to do more than talk about their sex lives.
  10. But even if the clipped dialogue sometimes suggests cop-show parody, the well-constructed mysteries give Without a Trace a strong foundation.
  11. Luck is a true original, a show with a tone like no other. [30 Jan 2012, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  12. House stands out on the strength of its misanthropic main character.
  13. The show feels weighed down by its own clout. [25 Sep 2006, p.43]

  14. [Now in season 2]Courtney Cox's a light, fast show about friends and couples who hang together, banter together and drink together. [8 Nov 2010, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  15. 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
  16. [A] superbly tawdry new crime series. [8 Jul 2013, p.35]
    • People Weekly
  17. Their white collar cases aren't always riveting but as summer fares goes, hot guys and Manhattan backdrops are a reliably escapist combo. [25 Jun 2012, p.47]
    • People Weekly
  18. The overall mythology is sprouting nicely thorny tendrils. [10 Sep 2012, p.42]
    • People Weekly
  19. This is probably not a clinically accurate portrayal of an OCD sufferer, but Shalhoub's gentle earnestness keeps it from being gimmicky.
  20. The jokes are, for the most part, more clever than funny.
  21. [A] rattling good series. [10 Jul 2006, p.39]

  22. The girls, who keep breathlessly repeating the phrase "high fashion" as if it were a mantra, nonetheless behave as they always do, which is most of the fun. [13 Sep 2010, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  23. Katie Leclerc is instantly, sunnily appealing as Daphne....Vanessa Marano is fine as the other misplaced kid, except she's a sulker and sort of a drag. [13 Jun 2011, p.48]

    At this point the show may lack in si-prises, but like one of Miss Kay's lovingly prepared brisket dinners, there's pleasing comfort in its familiarity. [26 Aug 2013, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  24. A tricky show with serious potential. [5 Mar 2012, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  25. The badinage with his wife plays nice and easy, like Home Improvement, while that with his parents and brother across the street has more of a Seinfeldian silliness.
  26. Slightly ghoulish but engrossing.
  27. It is still a distinctly Guest production: often poky, always charmingly whimsical and, from time to time, so astoundingly funny you seem to have shot into a distant stratosphere of pure comedy. [13 May 2013, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  28. The main plot lines are immediately involving.
