  1. Stuffed with absurd situations and piles of bad taste, Wilfred is the strangest new show on TV. And the funniest.
  2. The visual style pours as much emotional juice into the boiling, moody brew that Gilligan cooks up as his actors' searing performances do.
  3. True Blood works best when its freak flag flies--as long as its core characters are along for the ride.
  4. Southland brims with plot twists that never, ever feel contrived.
  5. Justified continues to explode with superb writing, complex characters and rich acting.
  6. And we're off and running with another season of great animation, skillful voice acting and hilariously foul-mouthed fun.
  7. Game Change is less about Palin than it is about this sad state of political affairs....That message made an impression, as did two amazing performances, beginning with Julianne Moore's uncanny and nuanced portrayal of Palin.
  8. With all its harsh realism and attention to detail it feels more authentic than a lot of the actual historical dramas on TV.
  9. Damages proves once again why it is one of the smartest thrillers on TV.
  10. Where it truly excels is in showing the emotional costs paid by the super soldiers doing their jobs and by the witnesses and/or victims of all the mayhem.
  11. The story remains completely realistic and believable while paving new roads for future developments.
  12. [Show creator Callie Khouri] has created rich histories for each of her compelling characters. The actors give nuanced performances that make their characters more than one-dimensional cliches.
  13. It's not always pretty or easy to watch, but Southland remains an outstanding hour of appointment TV.
  14. Unlike Season 5's two-hour premiere, which easily could have been edited to half its length, every minute of Sunday's episode feels necessary, checking in with all our favorite players and dancing with Weiner's favorite theme, death.
  15. It's a powerful, emotionally engaging character study.
  16. These final episodes overflow with love, compassion and one lesson we all can take to heart: Cathy lived.
  17. It gets darker, scarier and more captivating with each episode as Luther matches wits with killers and cops alike.
  18. The Returned is far and away the most thoughtful and thought-provoking series I've watched this year.
  19. [Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey's] riveting work would be worth the admission alone, but the hauntingly beautiful True Detective excels in every way.
  20. With its strong performances, subtle details and believable situations, Looking presents a convincing portrayal of everyday life--either gay or straight.
  21. Unlike in "Homeland," the show's main conceit grows even more complex and fascinating by including the Jennings kids.
  22. The first three episodes of the epic fantasy's fourth season reach new heights at times, offering enough twists, shocks and action to make us forget last season's mind-blowing Red Wedding.
  23. The smartly written series throws a lot of information, historical context, beautiful sets and costumes at viewers early on to create what eventually becomes a first-rate thriller.
  24. In order to fully appreciate SOA, viewers have to buy into Sutter's premise that murderers can be sympathetic and heroic, but that's not hard to do with such intelligent writing and so many mesmerizing performances.
  25. [It's] a new season of jump-from-your-seat scares and shivery twists that will leave you breathless.
  26. Whitechapel defies the odds, however, rising above its cliches with solid writing, taut direction, evocative cinematography and great performances by Penry-Jones, Davis and Pemberton.
  27. Hardy and the supporting cast deliver.
  28. If you want bold activities, high drama and laughs motivated by something other than fame, tune in for Season 2 of Shameless.
  29. It's a funny, creepy, touching thriller that had me laughing one second and peeking between my fingers the next.
  30. Smash tries mightily and mostly succeeds.
