4/5 73% My Own Worst Enemy: Season 1 (TV, 2008) [Christian Slater's] snark -- and the sensitivity he developed to forestall typecasting -- both get a healthy workout in My Own Worst Enemy - Time Out New York EDIT

81% Sleeper Cell: Season 2 (TV, 2005-2006) Sleeper Cell stays on the right side of the line between bravery and political correctness. - Time Out New York EDIT

4/5 100% Moonlighting: Season 5 (TV, 1985-1989) The other 12 episodes don't all measure up, but examples of dazzling creativity abound straight through to the head-spinningly metafictional grand finale (featuring Dr. Timothy Leary as himself). - Time Out New York EDIT

68% The Unit: Season 1 (TV, 2006-2009) Politics per se are avoided here, but while the commandos are appealing, viewers who follow the news may have trouble avoiding queasiness about where their orders are coming from. - Time Out New York EDIT

4/5 40% The Black Donnellys: Season 1 (TV, 2007) The Black Donnellys' blend of melodrama, low humor, and as much violence as the producers can get past standards and practices yields a freewheeling, boozy energy that's awfully hard to resist. - Time Out New York EDIT

89% Chappelle's Show: Season 3 (TV, 2003-2006) The Lost Episodes isn't an exercise in barrel scraping, fortunately, but it would be a lot easier to enjoy this raw, personal material without twinges of guilt if this were a lovingly assembled bootleg rather than a corporate bid to recoup an investment. - Time Out EDIT

4/5 86% Extras: The Extra Special Series Finale (TV, 2005-2007) Until its concluding minutes, however, the Extras finale is much darker and more depressing than what preceded it-indeed, it just might qualify as one of the most cynical depictions of show business in any screen medium. - Time Out New York EDIT

86% Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 6 (TV, 2000-2017) Curb was on fire this [season], in no small part thanks to the inspired addition of J.B. Smoove to David's gallery of sidekicks. - Time Out EDIT

5/5 81% John Adams: Miniseries (TV, 2008) There are few dramatic productions in any medium that have done a better job of illustrating the challenges America faced as a young nation. - Time Out New York EDIT
