81% Caprica: Season 1 (TV, 2010) " Like Battlestar Galactica, this series promises to be rich with allegory. " — Boston Globe
Posted Jan 22, 2010
67% Sherri: Season 1 (TV, 2009) " The world could probably use more comedians like Sherri Shepherd. But the world does not need more sitcoms like Sherri. " — Boston Globe
Posted Oct 5, 2009
50% The Cleveland Show: Season 1 (TV, 2009-2010) " For a certain segment of the audience - men, boys, evil babies, talking bears - it's likely to go over quite well. " — Boston Globe
Posted Sep 27, 2009
89% FlashForward: Season 1 (TV, 2009-2010) " Tonight's episode is dramatic and well-paced, unfolding ominously and quickly explaining the issues at hand. " — Boston Globe
Posted Sep 24, 2009
48% Cougar Town: Season 1 (TV, 2009-2010) " Cougar Town is less funny, and sometimes kind of creepy. " — Boston Globe
Posted Sep 23, 2009
40% Eastwick: Season 1 (TV, 2009) " Over the course of the premiere episode, the show grew on me. " — Boston Globe
Posted Sep 23, 2009
63% NCIS: Los Angeles: Season 1 (TV, 2009-2010) " It's all about the crimes, the technology, the guns, and, mostly about not having - or wanting - to think too much. " — Boston Globe
Posted Sep 22, 2009
2.5/4 87% Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (2009) " It's not especially filling, but it leaves a pleasant aftertaste." — Boston Globe
Posted Sep 18, 2009
64% Drop Dead Diva: Season 1 (TV, 2009) " The Lifetime press materials quote from a half-dozen women's groups, which heap praise on the network for creating a plus-size role model. But in truth, this show is filled with mixed messages about the links between appearance and self-esteem. " — Boston Globe
Posted Jul 11, 2009
42% Warehouse 13: Season 1 (TV, 2009) " There's a fine line between wink-wink clever and desperately cheesy. " — Boston Globe
Posted Jul 7, 2009
95% Nurse Jackie: Season 1 (TV, 2009) " The sorts of moral dilemmas that would take up an entire episode of Grey's Anatomy - organ donation, assisted suicide - pass by here without a blink. Characters make their choices, then move on. This is a show about consequences, not actions. " — Boston Globe
Posted Jun 8, 2009
100% Desperate Housewives: Season 5 (TV, 2008-2009) " There is, undeniably, something about these characters and performances that sticks. " — Boston Globe
Posted Sep 28, 2008
57% Heroes: Season 3 (TV, 2008-2009) " When it fails, this show is worse than a muddle; it's a muddle that has already run out of fresh ideas. " — Boston Globe
Posted Sep 22, 2008
50% The Secret Life of the American Teenager: Season 1 (TV, 2008-2009) " Nothing about it feels original or even especially timely, and it certainly doesn't reveal any great secrets about society. " — Boston Globe
Posted Jul 1, 2008
100% Battlestar Galactica: Season 3 (TV, 2006-2007) " Given how far it surpasses nearly everything else on TV, I'm hoping a mainstream audience will follow. " — Boston Globe
Posted Oct 6, 2006
97% When the Levees Broke (2006) " Lee makes a convincing case that, compared to 9/11, this is the far worse disaster." — Boston Globe
Posted Aug 22, 2006
11% Joe Dirt (2001) " Spade handles this acting challenge by keeping his face expressionless at all times." — Boston Globe
Posted Apr 11, 2001
33% Just Visiting (2001) " Seems like the same old shtick, with capes and French accents." — Boston Globe
