86% Nip/Tuck: Season 2 (TV, 2004) Would be critical folderol were it not for compelling if melodramatic story lines dealing frankly with the emotional lives of its desperately flawed principal characters. Fortunately, stoking the show's popularity are actors who know what they're doing.‐ Houston Chronicle

73% Grounded for Life: Season 1 (TV, 2001) This is the goods -- as funny as Malcolm in the Middle. In fact, it will remind you of that show in that it's another inside look at a wacky family... Donal Logue and Megyn Price are hilarious as the parents.‐ Houston Chronicle

40% The Black Donnellys: Season 1 (TV, 2007) Maybe the mob is not a subject broadcast TV should tackle. Audiences have seen the best on this subject, and this medium includes no examples. The Donnellys does not change that.‐ Houston Chronicle

89% Chappelle's Show: Season 3 (TV, 2006) The skits from the first Lost Episode find the comedian in top form, picking on subjects ripe to be picked on. But - and here's where pop psychologists could have a field day - one of the topics is himself.‐ Houston Chronicle
