  1. There are plenty of jolts throughout: bigotry, rape, a possible murder. However, as is normally the case with Downton, it's the quieter moments that shine brightest.
  2. Though the investigation is absorbing, it's the meticulous fleshing out of the obsessive and frequently conflicting lead characters that makes this drama seem so much fresher than the umpteen crime procedurals on television.
  3. The miniseries is full of striking characters, some brutish and scary, others vulnerable with painful secrets.
  4. It's so atmospheric, you'll absolutely feel the brutal cold.
  5. I actually could imagine checking out more. Here's why: It's message. Set in a Louisiana high school in the near future, Star-Crossed may be a sci-fi tale, but it really is about something viewers of all ages and tastes can relate to: discrimination.
  6. If you can overlook [that most of it was filmed in New Mexico]--not to mention all the Texas stereotypes--the new hour from executive producer Sofia Vergara of “Modern Family” fame is a fairly amusing cops-and-killers romp featuring lots of easy-on-the-eyes actresses and references to San Antonio, Alamo Heights, Bexar County and the Hill Country.
