    Always a 30-minute show with a rich vein of drama, Weeds feels darker than ever this season.
  1. The show is likely to score big ratings for its premiere, and early evidence indicates there's enough to keep people coming back.
  2. With Covert Affairs, USA has added another slick and likable drama to its summer lineup.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    We're looking forward to the rest of the season to watch this finely drawn mystery unravel.
  3. There are some predictable relationship issues that are introduced between a few characters that are more than a little groan-worthy in how cliche they are. Those few issues aside, Finding Carter hits the ground running with an extremely compelling pilot.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It delivers laughs, for sure, but with a brainy, subversive and sometimes absurdist edge.
  4. Through three episodes, there are enough funny, frustrating, sad and beautiful moments to make me hope Treme sticks around for a while.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Four episodes in, and Girls is still packing tons of jaw-dropping, head-shaking, eyebrow-raising scenes into 30 minutes each Sunday night.
  5. Spacey clearly loves portraying the wonderfully manipulative Frank Underwood, while Wright does a very convincing take on Lady Macbeth.
  6. 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.
  7. The new season returns to the show's more familiar structure. But the character beats that played out last season--and in previous seasons, for that matter -- linger. The result is that the Harlan, Ky., and environs of Justified feels like a very familiar, lived-in place--in the best possible sense.
  8. The show has one of the most thrilling pilots of recent years, but there are a few growing pains in the subsequent two episodes as the show sorts out the weight it gives stories involving the sub's crew, the locals on the tropical island they commandeer and the people back home who have connections to the sub.

    It is the perfect mix of fun and cheesiness that makes holiday films so enjoyable.
  9. Don't Trust the B---- in Apt 23 offers a new take on an old formula and it succeeds. It's weird, well cast and, most importantly, funny.
  10. Red Band is one of the brightest shining new shows of the fall TV season, thanks to solid writing and great, endearing cast performances.
  11. This joyful look into the past makes the dullest of facts come alive.
  12. Carter and West turn in winning performances, however little they resemble the icons they've been tasked to portray.
  13. The new comedy delivers on its crazy promise.
  14. It's not only the charm of the characters that raises "Please Like Me" above the lazy comparison. The series is also funny.

  15. 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.
  16. Yet as inspired as the performances are and as fully realized as the world is, traces of Soderbergh's recent weaknesses remain. For all the insight into Liberace's private life, there's very little insight into the man himself.
  17. The location shooting and some very strong performances lift it above standard cop-show fare.

    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.
  18. 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.
  19. Fun jokes, strange setups and surprisingly touching moments are all present as Community dances its fine edge between silliness and the abyss of the insane.
  20. Veep is a show, though, that finds great comedy in the space between that idealism and the reality they face every day.
  21. Silicon Valley has its share of pause-the-DVR laugh lines, but it's not as relentlessly funny as, say, Judge's "Office Space." It does, however, get better as it goes along.
  22. It's fun, but it's best in moderation.
  23. It's hard not to compare the comedy to past shows such as "The Bernie Mac Show" and "The Cosby Show" and rightfully so. Black-ish continues the momentum these shows started and brings in issues of this generation.
  24. Both our and their [James Wolk's character's women's] affection is bound to star James Wolk, who takes what would be a relatively engaging series and turns it into something much more exciting with the charm he injects into every scene--regardless of which persona he's playing.
