Up All Night: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2012)

" While there's definite potential in the show, there were a few things about it that just didn't work. "

Free Agents: Season 1 (TV, 2010)

" "Free Agents" plays its central relationship almost too honestly to wring many laughs from it. "

Ringer: Season 1 (TV, 2011)

" The pilot was extremely plot-heavy, so we've got our fingers crossed that future episodes will tone down the action and dig deeper into the characters. "

Zen: Season 1 (TV, 2011)

" There's a flashy new interloper in the domain of Hercule Poirot and Endeavour Morse. "

Wilfred: Season 1 (TV, 2011)

Game of Thrones: Season 1 (TV, 2011)

" It's stunningly rendered and very well-acted, and though the first few episodes have a tendency toward telling rather than showing, the pace rarely feels slack. "

Happy Endings: Season 1 (TV, 2011)

" It's populated with likable actors and rarely out-and-out bad, but it's also never much more than mildly amusing. "

The Killing: Season 1 (TV, 2011)

" It is compelling for its difference from the norm; it's not that whodunit is beside the point, but unlike a lot of cop shows, the trip will be just as important as the destination. "

CHAOS: Season 1 (TV, 2011)

" The actors in "Chaos" are all pretty likable, but the material they've been given to work with doesn't do them a whole lot of favors. "

Nurse Jackie: Season 3 (TV, 2011)

" Leaves us feeling a bit conflicted. But the acting, caustic characters and looming consequences make Season 3 destination viewing for anyone who's already hooked - and a worthwhile pursuit for anyone still on the fence. "

Greek: Season 4 (TV, 2011)

" Other college shows like Hellcats haven't quite managed to strike the same balance between fun, romance, and realism that Greek did. It'll definitely be missed. "

The Chicago Code: Season 1 (TV, 2011)

" We're going to go ahead and say that "The Chicago Code" is, in fact, one of the best new series to hit the air this season, and that would be true in a better year for television as well. "

Perfect Couples: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011)

" There looks to be enough raw material there to make Perfect Couples, if not an instantly vital cog in NBC's Thursday comedy lineup, at least a reason to stay put between Community and The Office. "

Off the Map: Season 1 (TV, 2011)

" OTM doesn't immediately grab us the way Grey's or Private Practice did. This probably has a lot to do with the fact that there seems to be a bit of an identity crisis happening here. "

The Cape: Season 1 (TV, 2011)

" If you're one who gets sucked into stories of valor, can have a sense of humor about the characters and their abilities, and you can buy the idea that one man can make a difference, you'll enjoy "The Cape." "

Episodes (US): Season 1 (TV, 2011)

The Walking Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2010)

" Like the zombies that populate it, "The Walking Dead" doesn't move especially fast. But even though things are at a slow burn throughout much of the show's first two episodes, there's a lot to soak up along the way. "

Outsourced: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011)

Blue Bloods: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011)

" What is there in the premiere of "Blue Bloods" is the cast, and some sharply written and acted scenes between the family members. Those more than make up for a pretty standard-issue case in the premiere. "

Chase: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011)

" Action will only take the show so far, but eventually viewers need to care about the characters or they don't have a reason to keep watching and Chase turns into a show that gets watched as an afterthought, not as appointment viewing. "

Nikita: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011)

" Maggie Q is undoubtedly a breakout as the title character - even the clunky-but-essential exposition that bogs down most television pilots sounds graceful coming from her, and the stunts, which she does herself, are effortlessly precise. "
