Gilmore Girls

The sixth season's drawn-out storyline did away with the witty dialogue that attracted me to the show in the first place.


The Geena Davis Show

What's puzzling is why Davis would return to television in this paint-by-numbers sitcom in which she plays a nearly brain-dead career woman-slash-stepmother.


Gilmore Girls

Not that insisting that one's child be educated and aware of the consequences of sex is surely a bad thing, but in the case of 'Gilmore Girls', never-wed single parenting falls into the 'mistakes were made' category, while Murphy Brown made an active choice.


Glory Days

PULL.


The Guardian

PULL.


Gotham Girls

It's a shame that Gotham Girls' creators don't realize the potential of either these characters or the medium of web animation.


A Girl Thing

It's true that 'A Girl Thing' concerns girls, or more accurately, women of various ages and backgrounds.


Greg the Bunny

Imagine a world of people living side by side with puppets.


Girlfriends

PULL.


Felicity

Early rumors labeled the show 'Ally McBeal Goes to College', and it's taken two full seasons to grow into the designation.


Friends

In the end, 'Friends' has become the epitome of 'Must-See TV' -- not because it's in our best interest to watch it, but because without us, these people have no reason to be together.


The Fugitive

What we're left with is a string of TV-caliber action sequences, like Kimble jumping off a building, that only serve to remind us how cool it was when Harrison Ford plummeted off that dam.


Flipped

[Reality television] is truly a dead horse, and MTV is beating it.


First Monday

In 'First Monday', even more than in 'The West Wing', religious belief functions as a dramatic (and heavy-handed) shortcut.


Freakylinks

Right off the bat, 'Freakylinks' annoys.


Frasier

Even if 'Frasier' does continue to fade, many viewers will maintain their emotional and intellectual investment in the show, motivated by nostalgia rather than the hallmarks of the first seven seasons -- originality, wit, and superb ensemble work.


Fear Factor

'Fear Factor' perfectly plays off the voyeurism we've become used to with TV -- looking without being caught.

The Education of Max Bickford

'The Education of Max Bickford' has yet to strike the right balance between outspoken politics and a desire not to offend.


Entourage

Entourage's depiction of the delicate symbiotic relationship between the talent and their support staff is often perceptive and revealing, elevating the series above pure fantasy or self-parody.
