  • This may not be Peabody material, but if you like a show that's not afraid to go bananas, this might just be your type of low-hanging fruit. show more

  • Even if Scandal isn't quite as instantly addictive as "Grey's Anatomy" was back in the day, this is a well-paced, generally well-acted show with some promising elements (though there is also an occasional tendency to offer contrived redemptions that don't make a ton of sense). show more

  • While the characters are slight and the dialog is silly, there's a story there somewhere. show more
