86% Extras: The Extra Special Series Finale (TV, 2005-2007) [The finale] descends into the sort of rote "be careful what you wish for" moralizing that defines so many tiresome celebrity biopics that it dilutes its more uproarious moments...Still, celebrity cameos...keep it plenty lively. - Orange County Register EDIT

80% The Amazing Race: Season 21 (TV, 2013-2015) I'm very happy to have one of my favorite reality shows back, but decidedly unhappy about the first leg and what it might mean for the rest of the season. - Orange County Register EDIT

86% The Amazing Race: Season 18 (TV, 2013-2015) "The Amazing Race" started its all-star "Unfinished Business" season with something less than a bang... - Orange County Register EDIT

No Score Yet The Amazing Race: Season 14 (TV, 2013-2015) The Watcher is still catching his breath from last night's premiere of "The Amazing Race," which may rank as the best start the Race has had in its 14 seasons. - Orange County Register EDIT

60% The Amazing Race: Season 19 (TV, 2013-2015) The Watcher has complained loudly that recent seasons had turned control of the Race over to cab drivers and the teams themselves did little to determine their own fates. I'm happy to say season 19 was better. - Orange County Register EDIT

86% The Amazing Race: Season 16 (TV, 2013-2015) Sunday's sad and frustrating ending to "The Amazing Race" proved two truths that we preferred to think were false: Brent & Caite were not the only dummies in the Final Four [and] the producers mailed it in this season. - Orange County Register EDIT

56% Survivor: Redemption Island (TV, 2013-2016) "Survivor" gave us some interesting insight into group dynamics and social behavior, but the complete lack of gameplay by anyone other than Rob or Russell Hantz made the season much less than we have come to expect from the show. - Orange County Register EDIT

100% Survivor: Tocantins -- The Brazilian Highlands (TV, 2013-2016) It was a strange season, with the first half as dull as "Survivor" gets and the second half as interesting as it comes. Steady alliances gave way to treachery and intrigue, and we loved it. - Orange County Register EDIT

96% Dexter: Season 2 (TV, 2006-2013) I'll state it plainly: Showtime's Dexter is the best series on television. Period... The show's producers this season have had the courage to write themselves into the tightest of corners, giving darkly cunning psychopath Dexter Morgan no easy way out. - Orange County Register EDIT
