A- 81% The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency: Season 1 " Even for those who've never picked up one of the books, Minghella's loving vision of Botswana and Scott's bright, joyful portrayal of the innocent (but far from naive) Precious Ramotswe are nothing less than charming. " — AV Club

B 100% It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 4 (TV, 2008) " Sunny is playing to its strengths: using pop culture conventions to provide a jumping-off point for meta-riffs on their implausibility. " — AV Club
Posted Oct 1, 2013
A- 100% It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 3 (TV, 2007) " There's a lot of life in the old sitcom format yet, my friends. Witness It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, which makes hilarious hay out of TV's hoariest genre. " — AV Club
Posted Oct 1, 2013
B+ 80% How I Met Your Mother: Season 9 (TV, 2013-2014) " Me? I'm confident. I'm a total story-structure geek, and that's one of the reasons I love this show. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 24, 2013
B+ 100% Modern Family: Season 3 (TV, 2011-2012) " I like the idea and the execution, even though it strays further into the realm of fantasy than this show usually ventures. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 20, 2013
B+ 86% Modern Family: Season 2 (TV, 2010-2011) " One of the beautiful moments in show business is when a great comedian [Ed O'Neill] previously confined to one iconic role emerges with new shades of performance in a role that allows for redefinition and renewed appreciation. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 20, 2013

Posted Nov 26, 2012
A- 67% Modern Family: Season 4 (TV, 2012-2013) " As standard-issue as we might peg Modern Family to be, it's not going to let us characterize it as lazy. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 26, 2012
B 40% How I Met Your Mother: Season 8 (TV, 2012-2013) " What I'm looking forward to this season (and next, if need be) isn't the fairy-tale ending, but the final transformations that take place when leaving those illusions behind. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 24, 2012
A- 100% Breaking Bad: Season 5 (TV, 2012-2013) " It's going to be just as mesmerizingly terrifying to plummet down from the heights of power with Walt as it was last season to sink into the depths of powerlessness. " — AV Club
Posted Jul 15, 2012
C+ 27% How to Be a Gentleman: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2012) " With a little faster pacing and a little more imagination, How To Be A Gentleman could be eminently watchable and perhaps even live up to the promise of its excellent cast. " — AV Club
