    It's not exactly groundbreaking TV, but it's fun, sexy and filled with "Degrassi" alums--easy to watch and incredibly addictive.
  1. It's up in the air as to how Wilfred will be perceived by viewers. The first three episodes are fantastic, but proudly off-color, like most of FX's comedy line-up.
  2. Will it mete out enough answers to keep viewers tuning in? And can it sustain the mystery all season? We're dubious, but we're already engaged enough that we'll give the show a chance.
  3. For those who loved the original series, the theme song is intact, and the phrase "Book 'em, Danno" isn't used lightly. Other than that, this "Hawaii Five-0 2.0" is its own beast, slow-roasted in the ground until it's ready for crowd-pleasing perfection.
  4. Witty dialogue combined with the likability of the squeaky-clean Feldman and Milioti will bring you in for the first few letters, but the supporting players will keep you in through the letter Z.
  5. While there's a little something lost in translation, the show retains enough of the core of the original that--bolstered by strong performances from top to bottom--it's as good a remake as any import since "The Office."
  6. The ABC drama is one of the best new series to hit TV this fall.
  7. The Red Road drops viewers into a complicated situation that only gets more complicated by the end of its first episode.
  8. Overall, it's a strong first episode and we will definitely keep watching.
  9. No other new show this fall is attempting to tell a bigger story, and we're hoping the rough patches smooth out and it fulfills the potential that's there in its very strong cast and premise.
  10. As long as that emotional content isn't overpowered by the central mystery, Twisted could prove to be another worthy summer sudser for ABC Family.
  11. The characters aren't terribly deep and the dialog doesn't take advantage of Emerson's and Caviezel's acting chops.
  12. But when a show reaches the level that Nurse Jackie did in Season 4, reverting to cruise control isn't enough--and Jackie is just coasting through its new run.
  13. It's trying too hard to be a "sitcom" that looks and feels straight out of 1992. The bones are there, but the execution is lacking.
  14. For now, we find it a solid, entertaining spook-fest.
  15. Chiklis ("The Shield," "Fantastic Four") and Benz ("Dexter") are appealing leads, and "No Ordinary Family" will most likely rise and fall on their backs.
  16. Terra Nova is another vehicle for a familiar story. It's one we're happy to watch, just maybe not with the fervor FOX is hoping for.

    While there's definite potential in the show, there were a few things about it that just didn't work.
  17. Though the choice to have the characters speak to the camera feels a little tired (and the plotting to have it continue past the premiere is quite contrived), the show is quite possibly one of the funniest new comedies of the season, full of small moments that lead to big laughs.
  18. With Covert Affairs, USA has added another slick and likable drama to its summer lineup.
  19. Sleepy Hollow is quite fun, if you're willing to suspend all disbelief and go for the ride.
  20. A cool premise can only take a show so far, and there's some work to do on the character front to make the show worthy of using all available technology not to miss.
  21. Like several new shows this season, the ABC comedy is neither cover-your-eyes bad nor set-the-DVR-season-pass good. It just sort of is what it is, which is occasionally cute and amusing--thanks mostly to a cast of comedy veterans--but largely forgettable.

    Undercovers [is]quite possibly one of the best meldings of the two sides of Abrams thus far: the action-adventure guy and the seriously modern romantic.
  22. House of Lies lacks the heart of "Shameless" and Kaan lacks the likability of Duchovny's Hank Moody, which means we care very little about the characters after two episodes.
  23. There is a lot to like and there is great potential, so give it a chance and see if you want to engage with Marry Me every week.
  24. At the end of the day, Hell on Wheels is beautifully-filmed project that offers exceptional attention to detail on everything but the main character.
  25. Mob City presents a sumptuous-looking period piece with remarkable attention to detail. But beyond that, it all feels a little bit overblown.
  26. The new Dallas isn't a game-changer, but it's a solidly built, easy-to-take soap that does right by its predecessor.
  27. We have no idea what the future holds, but if the series holds up to the pilot, Satisfaction is an exciting and way more than satisfying journey worth taking.
