  1. It's not easy to watch, but the Steven Soderbergh-directed period hospital drama sure is worth a look.
  2. Despite its supporting cast of international actors who bring even thinly drawn characters to life, Outlander truly shines when Balfe shares the screen with either Heughan or Menzies.
  3. Falling Skies, although competently directed, acted and sometimes written, goes off on more than a few tangents and paint-by-numbers subplots of the genre. It's best when it sticks to the main thread, and that's the battle for survival and to learn what the six-legged freaks are doing with the children.
  4. It's a credit to Popper that the running gags seem fresh and funny every time, and that he can mine so much humor from a weekly dinner. But as long as he does, I'll have the table set.
  5. Ugly Americans can be gross and bizarre, but everything makes sense in the world that it has created.
  6. Spivey gives her stars so much better material stemming from the parents' self-doubt about everything from doing right by their daughter to still rocking a tight skirt (Reagan) to buying the right cheese at the overwhelmingly huge supermarket (Chris).
  7. They say Revenge is a dish best served cold, and here it's downright delicious.
  8. Thanks to the rock solid performances of Bello, O'Byrne and co-stars that include Kirk Acevedo, Kenny Johnson and Chicago homeboys Tim Griffin and Aidan Quinn, Prime Suspect rises above the formula network procedurals that focus more on forensics than good, old-fashioned grunt detective work.
  9. If they keep the cute at bay for more dinosaurs and dirty dealings, this should be a great ride.
  10. It's dark, disturbing and a little downbeat--which isn't a dis at all.
  11. A grisly tale, feuled by West's mesmerizing performance.
  12. Luck is a sometimes confusing yet fascinating study of the colorful characters--the jockeys, trainers, owners, gamblers and railbirds--who populate horse-racing tracks.
  13. The acting remains impeccable, and the writing adds depth to characters that seemed one-dimensional the first season.
  14. Although you've tasted many of the ingredients before (in "The Sopranos," "Mad Men," "The Godfather" movies), creator Mitch Glazer mixes in enough new elements to keep things tasty.
  15. [A] cynical, hilarious and profane political satire.
  16. An affectionate and surprisingly insightful look at Hollywood hopefuls clawing to make careers in TV, music, comedy and dance.
  17. Awkward's writing is sharp enough to keep even those viewers who refuse to go to their reunions laughing.
  18. It's an incredibly poignant look at Mia and her new family, and Sevigny is outstanding.
  19. Copper doesn't open as confidently as I had hoped (or as its pedigree might lead one to expect), but given the classic themes, rich time period and great acting, I trust it will keep my interest.
  20. The Mindy Project mostly lives up to the hype.
  21. Ben & Kate is at its best when the siblings lovingly spar--usually about one of Ben's hair-brained schemes.
  22. Miller is infinitely watchable as the twitchy detective, and I'm sure Liu will bring more to Watson if she's given the chance.
  23. Arrow landed in my list of Top 5 pilots of the season, and I hope future episodes are as enthralling and well-made.
  24. It's truly troubling to watch as helpless, restrained patients are treated against their wills. Yet despite mumbling over and over during the first episode, "I'm done with this already," I had to see the second.
  25. This is history lite, to be sure, but it's probably a lot livelier than your sixth-grade history class was.
  26. While "Copper" took some time to get into a groove, Ripper Street is riveting from the first cry of murder.
  27. [Purefoy's and Bacon's] performances--and scenes that focus on Carroll's killer minions that I won't talk about lest I spoil things for readers--are the strongest parts of the series and overshadow the weaknesses. Those include numerous plot holes and some sketchy logic, plus Williamson's annoying habit of beating us over the head with the Poe references.
  28. Dallas is just as superbly soapy as ever, but you have to wonder whether the show can survive without its legendary star.
  29. [An] exciting but frustrating spy thriller from former CIA employee and writer-executive producer Joe Weisberg, skillfully captures the anxiety of the age.
  30. As fascinating as the minutiae are, fine work by the cast makes me wish this had been a fully scripted miniseries.
