  1. An exciting and scary trip.
  2. Cougar Town returns with its wit, silliness and good-heartedness fully intact.
  3. Well acted and smartly written, Awake works as an intellectual puzzler, emotional family drama and case-of-the-week procedural.
  4. I'm pleased to report that creators/writers Ben Court and Caroline Ip and exec producer Sally Woodward Gentle have tweaked that gimmick ever so slightly, making Whitechapel fresh yet familiar in Season 2.
  5. The Borgias is back with more drama, sex, violence and betrayals than ever.
  6. It's mostly improvised, which makes the funny exchanges between Kudrow and her guest stars even more impressive.
  7. TV's best series that few are watching hasn't lightened up, and that's mostly a good thing.
  8. The relentless bleakness would be my only quibble with the series; one doesn't often choose to feel as battered as the characters on screen. But you won't be able to turn it off.
  9. Season 3 is off to a roaring good start.
  10. It's the season's riskiest new series, but also one of the best.
  11. While Mazzara has amped up the action, he doesn't skimp on the angst.
  12. Hunted is an intriguing and rewarding puzzle worth (trying) to solve.
  13. Legit is legitimately and simultaneously raunchy, sweet and funny.
  14. He's funny and totally down to earth, which makes him an engaging host and guide for the eight-episode series.
  15. The quirky campus comedy is as clever and edgy as ever.
  16. Mamet and his actors have created a fascinating character study that puts our notions of prejudice, celebrity, media and justice in the spotlight.
  17. As Sarah makes one shocking discovery after another, Orphan Black weaves an increasingly intricate, suspenseful tale.
  18. The mystical mumbo jumbo nearly derails the proceedings, but Goyer reins in the hookum in favor of frolicking adventure that's more fun than fact.
  19. Please Like Me, unlike the much-praised millennial comedy "Girls," feels unpretentious and natural with fully-realized characters rooted in reality.
  20. The show is way more than a thriller--although it could stand tall if it were just that. It continues to subtly examine the effects their high-risk and dangerous jobs have on the brave special ops soldiers fighting evil in the world.
  21. Even though the team's first assignment—involving an ordinary guy with strange new powers (J. August Richards)--is kind of average as adventures go, the actors seem to have found a snappy groove already.
  22. Believe it or not, that stomach-turning gore is part of this four-part gem's charm. A Young Doctor's Notebook gets the balance between tragedy and comedy just right.
  23. Although the premiere is hampered by unnecessary narration and over-exposition, it's still a bewitching brew of whimsy, psychological scares, horrific atrocities and the wonderfully relentless feeling that something wicked this way comes.
  24. [Creator J.H. Wyman] peppers what really is a police procedural with enough not-so-distant science to make Almost Human a sci-fi thriller, and enough humor to make it a buddy cop comedy.
  25. The Spoils of Babylon is an entertaining and spot-on spoof of the overdone potboiler miniseries of the 1970s and '80s.
  26. Silicon Valley is a funny, insightful, blistering satire.
  27. The former WWII code-breakers of this excellent British import don't deflect bullets with magical bracelets. They use their brains, determination, courage and pleasant demeanors like stealth weapons, covertly undermining postwar expectations to right wrongs no one else seems to notice.
  28. Fargo the TV series--confident as Lorne Malvo--stands firmly on its own. You betcha it does.
  29. It remains one of TV's most compelling series, period.
  30. History tells us what the Manhattan Project unleashed on the world, but Manhattan conjures a compelling (fictional) journey for the men and women who made it happen.
