  1. The good news is Vikings improves with each episode, slowly building its fascinating characters and discovering its ultimately absorbing tale.
  2. Like "Psycho," it offers a deliciously scary stew of unexpected twists, murder and mind games.
  3. It's epic, hilarious and totally tasteless.

    "CSI: NY" is just as good as the original "CSI" and its first spin-off "CSI: Miami." ... Yes, the writing is a little weak, but the atypical crimes and the fascinating technology make the show extremely addictive. [24 Sep 2004]

  4. Despite some flaws, Broadchurch is beautifully filmed, sharply directed and intensely acted.
  5. Gervais has written, produced and directed a thoughtful and thought-provoking dramedy that celebrates everyday heroes and the power of kindness while attacking materialism and the way society often forgets people "just because they're old and poor and weak."
  6. All joking aside, Key and Peele do still have something to say.
  7. Like Spader, Collette is fascinating to watch; there's always so much happening just under the surface.... Show creators Alon Aranya, Omri Givon, Rotem Shamir and Jeffrey Nachmanoff pack the Hostages pilot with a ton of side plots.
  8. There's no doubt that The Blacklist will present a terrorist case of the week. But the marvelous action sequences and intriguing plot twists should lift it above any standard procedural.... If none of that interests you, Spader's magnetic performance alone is enough to warrant at least a couple looks.
  9. The slooowly-paced first two episodes offer enough action and intrigue to keep me riding a while longer.
  10. Though the gorgeous production starts out slowly and has its pompous moments, it's ultimately worth your time.
  11. Hints of a deeper mythology are revealed, too, suggesting that Helix will move beyond its stop-the-virus story into something even more intriguing. In the meantime, it's a suspenseful, scary thriller.
  12. Scheuring gets sidetracked by the trite redemption stories of a hooker (Conor Leslie) and a Canadian Mountie (Marton Csokas). But those are small hiccups in this entertaining, expansive tale of one man's fight to keep his humanity, which he discovers is more valuable than all the gold in the Yukon.
  13. While the storytelling is generally riveting, Hirst and his team occasionally drop a few stinkers in the dialogue. The exceptional cast—which also includes Katheryn Winnick as Ragner's wife, Lagertha—is able to rise above those bombs. It's their distinctive portrayals that, for me, bring this Dark Ages tale to life.
  14. It may not be as intriguing as "Thrones" or as tense as FX's spy thriller "The Americans," but Turn--which touches on still-relevant topics like torture, homosexuality and politics--offers a fresh spin on the War of Independence.
  15. While we appear to be in for a depressing ride, fear not: Creator Matthew Weiner still has a few winks and tricks up his sleeve.
  16. Live Another Day starts its 12-episode run in a typically gripping if superficial and improbable fashion, but you'll get no complaints from me.
  17. Coleman's rich performance matches Capaldi's as Clara struggles with the regeneration of her Doctor.... The Doctor may be different, but he's as entertaining as ever.
  18. Necessary Roughness hasn't scored a touchdown yet, but it's early in the game.
  19. There isn't anything too deeply intellectual here because the action moves the plot. And "Strike Back" has action to spare.
  20. Some might say the show is overstuffed with stories, but I had no problem following the various strands, even if some were less interesting than others.
  21. None of this, of course, is cutting edge new. But if you buy into the show's out-there fantasy of the suburbs--and I do, because I fear them--then you'll be amply entertained.
  22. The hauntings are staged for maximum creepiness; the show (and James) look great.
  23. Horowitz and Kitsis are clever and playful in how they insert the fairytale characters into the present day, which kept my interest even when, as I said earlier, I was chuckling.
  24. Most of these characters are by-the-numbers denizens of any Western. Thankfully most of the actors make them more interesting than the sometimes atrocious dialogue should allow.
  25. It's all very new-agey and a bit pretentious.
  26. It isn't consistently funny--and it definitely isn't as daring or groundbreaking as advertised.
  27. A tantalizingly juicy soap opera.
  28. The former "Dawson's Creek" hunk provides much of the charm and limited punch lines until Apartment 23 starts to find its way in later episodes.
  29. When it really sails, it cuts through the waves swiftly. But it loses wind so many times the thrills come only sporadically.
