Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
0% Futurama: Season 1 (TV, 1999) The premiere has the wonderfully distinctive geekiness but not the toothy bite of "The Simpsons," which was something spectacular to behold from the moment Homer uttered his first "Dohhhhhh!"‐ Los Angeles Times

82% ER: Season 1 (TV, 1994-1995) Enough of the story lines are sufficiently compelling to hold your attention. And the pace? Well, put it this way about all the pulsating and fluid camerawork: You rarely lose interest.‐ Los Angeles Times

92% Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 1 (TV, 1997) "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" is "Clueless" with teeth.‐ Los Angeles Times

0% Friends: Season 1 (TV, 1994-1995) NBC has flat-out the best comedy series of the new season in Friends.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% The Simpsons: Season 1 (TV, 1989-1990) Do not miss this half hour. It's a flat-out howl. It's also warm . . . uh, I think.‐ Los Angeles Times

40% Mercy Point: Season 1 (TV, 1998-1999) This one is derivative on every level, its futuristic setting and low-budget techno-gizmos an attempt to divert attention from its mustiness and lack of originality.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Roseanne: Season 1 (TV, 1988-1989) Series creator Matt Williams gets credit for the script and director Ellen Falcon for uncovering a vein of warmth and affection in these characters, whose clashes are merely the superficial trimmings of a basically good and loving marriage. ‐ Los Angeles Times

75% Alias: Season 1 (TV, 2001-2002) Alias is another of those new series that asks viewers to pocket disbelief and not examine plot details closely, but not to worry, for the show's explosive payoffs are well worth it.‐ Los Angeles Times

73% Star Trek: The Next Generation: Season 1 (TV, 1987-1988) The new cast is fine ([Patrick] Stewart is a very interesting actor) and the story, although not very deep, inspired or mind-melding, has a nice payoff. But getting there takes much too long.‐ Los Angeles Times

87% Twin Peaks: Season 2 (TV, 1990-1991) I do have a strong suspicion what it's about and what it means: Nothing. Ah, but watching "nothing" has never been as much fun.‐ Los Angeles Times

98% Twin Peaks: Season 1 (TV, 1990) Twin Peaks is a soap opera like no other soap opera, TV like no other TV.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 14, 2017
0% Six Feet Under: Season 3 (TV, 2003) Six Feet Under continues to be heroically smart, tender and witty while finding dark fun in formaldehyde in the early weeks of the show's third season.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2017
0% Six Feet Under: Season 1 (TV, 2001) Although Six Feet Under doesn't approach The Sopranos, it does well enough on its own terms, exhuming one painful family secret after another, threaded by satirical commercials for such cadaverous products as embalming fluid.‐ Los Angeles Times

92% The X-Files: Season 1 (TV, 1993-1994) There's not much suspense here, but the two leads, and the hour's teacup worth of mystery, are just enough to keep this flying saucer aloft.‐ Los Angeles Times

84% Firefly: Season 1 (TV, 2002-2003) The production look is interesting if unspectacular, and the characters have ambiguous appeal. If only Firefly would give them tasks worth watching.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% The Sopranos: Season 3 (TV, 2001) It's their moral ambiguity that most grounds them in reality and makes them so fascinating that missing even one episode is unthinkable. Every move they make, every step they take, we'll be watching them.‐ Los Angeles Times

92% The Sopranos: Season 2 (TV, 2000) The performances again are superb, sometimes in small moments.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% The Sopranos: Season 1 (TV, 1999) Hands down, it's the series of the season.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2014
100% The Wire: Season 2 (TV, 2003) The Wire, a deluxe cops-and-crooks hour that opens its second season on HBO Sunday night as brainy and irresistible as ever.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 15, 2014
83% The Wire: Season 1 (TV, 2002) Joining Six Feet Under, Sex and the City, Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Sopranos on this pedestal is The Wire, a scorching look at the drug trade in a Baltimore housing project through the eyes of mid-level dealers and police.‐ Los Angeles Times

89% Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 1 (TV, 2000) A peril of improv comedy is that the im and prov aren't always in sync. Although that rarely happens here, "Curb Your Enthusiasm" does at times belabor the black cloud that hovers over David's head from start to finish. Mostly, though, this show is a gas.‐ Los Angeles Times
