No Signal, FX

Did we like it? If you loved The Kevin Bishop Show on Channel 4 – the one featuring short, sharp clips from lots of spoof TV channels and programmes – you may have liked this identical twin but, like us, would probably have felt it was a lot less successful. What was...

Generation Kill, FX

Did we like it? This Iraq war drama created by Ed Burns and David Simon (of Homicide, The Corner and The Wire fame) lived up to the hype, with a powerful, noisy, unsensational and memorable opening edpisode. What was good about it? • The chaotic miniseries about a...

Burn Notice, FX

Burn Notice, FX

Did we like it? This new Miami-set series about a spy who's been 'burned' (cut off with no resources) enjoyed an OK start. It was swish, glamorous, sexy, occasionally humorous but never quite compelling. What was good about it? • We weren't impressed with the start,...

The Nominees, FX

Did we like it? Despite too much time spent with the necessary introductions of the grotesques competing for Australian of the Year, we saw the same glimpses of wit and imagination as in Summer Heights High that make star Chris Lilley an outstanding new comedy talent....

Dexter, FX/ITV1

Did we like it? The buzz around this serial killer drama was pretty intense so we were expecting a classic to fill that Soprano-sized void, that West Wing-sized wilderness. Alas, Dexter's not that good. But it is good, perverse and thrilling. What was good about it? •...

Lucky Louie, FX

Did we like it? You can stick your Will & Grace, your Friends, maybe even your Scrubs up your jacksie. A proper dirty sitcom about proper people with proper problems written by the genius that is Louis C.K. Highly recommended. What was good about it? • This is a...

Huff, FX

What to say if you like it A dark tale of morality. Well told, well played, well worth watching. What to say if you dislike it Stuff Huff. It's duff fluff. What's good about it? • Hank Azaria shines as psychiatrist Huff – a sincere man in an insincere world, who is...
