2.5/4 74% The Borgias: Season 1 (TV, 2011) There's enough good material to keep its sacrilegious fires burning.‐ What Culture

2/4 83% Merlin: Season 3 (TV, 2011) Unfortunately, a lot of the good work in "The Tears Of Uther Pendragon" was dragged down by the show's adherence to a formula I'd hoped it had evolved beyond‐ What Culture

2/4 88% Human Target: Season 2 (TV, 2010-2011) Whatever happens, the inclusion of two strong women is an obvious but welcome change to Human Target's dynamic.‐ What Culture

1.5/4 41% The Cape: Season 1 (TV, 2011) The Cape is wantonly preposterous and derivative, but that doesn't have to be a barrier to a great hour's entertainment. Unfortunately, The Cape's also blundering, stupid, and poorly written.‐ What Culture

2/4 61% Bored to Death: Season 1 (TV, 2009) It's a show that uses its first season to explore its own limitations, strengths and weaknesses, but doesn't really accomplish much over eight episodes.‐ What Culture

2/4 75% Chuck: Season 4 (TV, 2010-2011) The problem I've always had with Chuck is that it doesn't seem to understand what parts of its show should be abandoned, content to make mistakes it has to rectify when there's a backlash, or else ignore the perfect opportunity for a refresh.‐ What Culture

3/4 100% Justified: Season 2 (TV, 2011) Justified nails the tone and prickly characterizations you expect from a crime drama set in the sun-baked American countryside.‐ What Culture

2.5/4 100% The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Days Gone Bye (TV Episode) Hopefully The Walking Dead will surprise us... by embracing the one thing zombie movies rarely have enough time to do: develop multi-faceted characters you really care for, to feel genuine distress when some inevitably get bitten.‐ What Culture

3/4 100% The Good Wife: Season 2 (TV, 2010-2011) I remain charmed by the performances, appreciative of its slick style and storytelling technique, and invested in the lives of these characters.‐ What Culture

3/4 90% Lights Out: Season 1 (TV, 2011) Lights Out might not deliver a knockabout blow in its opening round, but it goes the distance and ensures you'll be planted on your seat ready for the bell to sound for round two.‐ What Culture

2.5/4 94% Zen: Season 1 (TV, 2011) Overall, Zen was stylishly shot and well-acted, telling a story that wasn't quite as sharp and satisfying as I'd hoped for, but it was good enough to leave you wanting more.‐ What Culture

1.5/4 No Score Yet Primeval: Season 5 (TV, 2011) It's a shame Primeval's failed to rise to the next level, despite clearly wanting to, and the corniness of its characters doesn't help matters.‐ What Culture

1.5/4 81% Caprica: Season 1 (TV, 2010) We need a significant change; a twist to make this story feel necessary and gripping, because at the moment there are independently compelling ideas and a remarkable universe to play around in, but not much holding the seams together.‐ What Culture

1.5/4 78% Nikita: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011) I'm unconvinced Nikita has anywhere interesting to go, or that it'll be worth jumping aboard for a ride I think I've already been on.‐ What Culture

2/4 44% Camelot: Season 1 (TV, 2011) Camelot faces an uphill struggle because the Arthurian legend's so overexposed there's no excitement about its existence as a continuing adult drama‐ What Culture

2/4 36% Breakout Kings: Season 1 (TV, 2011) Breakout Kings is distinctly average fare, quickly smothering the fun from its alluring premise.‐ What Culture
