100% Murder, She Wrote: Season 1 (TV, 1984-1985) Perhaps because producers couldn't rely on gee-whiz special effects or pounding pop music scores, there's an unrelenting focus on character development in these episodes.‐ Variety

86% Emmys: 58th Emmys (TV, 2006) A valiant, near-heroic effort by Conan O'Brien -- and a final flurry of legitimately exciting wins -- couldn't overcome the ho-hummery of a night destined to bore from the minute the TV Academy announced its much-ridiculed list of nominees.‐ Variety

44% Emmys: 59th Emmys (TV, 2007) A fast-moving and relatively painless broadcast that nobody will remember in a few weeks... but at least watercoolers won't be buzzing about yet another dreadfully dull awards show.‐ Variety

90% Emmys: 61st Emmys (TV, 2009) Overall, the 2009 Emmys are a model for what award shows should be: Quick-paced, a little bit irreverent and yet still respectful to nominees and winners.‐ TheWrap

No Score Yet Doogie Howser, M.D.: Season 4 (TV, 1992-1993) Doogie tackled serious issues and presented teens as more than just horny idiots. And as mentioned, Harris was a major presence in his first major role.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

90% The Cosby Show: Season 1 (TV, 1984-1985) Twenty years on, the clothes may seem loud and hideous, but Cosby's performance remains timeless.‐ Variety

80% Spin City: Season 1 (TV, 1996-1997) Spin benefited not just from the charm of Fox but also was blessed with one of the better sitcom ensembles of the nineties. Plots are broad and the comedy is physical, but the show was well written and amazingly acted.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

78% The O.C.: Season 1 (TV, 2003-2004) Whereas sudsers of yore relied heavily on jaw-dropping plot-twists and cleavage to woo auds, Schwartz's stew features a number of ingredients that give the show a much longer shelf life. ‐ Variety

59% The O.C.: Season 4 (TV, 2006-2007) The O.C. is once again in great creative shape, with believable storylines and plenty of the razor-sharp wit at which the series excels.‐ Variety

24% Manimal: Season 1 (TV, 1983) This show lasted barely three months on NBC's schedule in the fall of 1983, but its impact can still be felt on TV to this day. Well, OK, that's not true.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

80% Once Upon a Time: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2012) Once has become a rare must-see for families, bringing adults and kids together in front of the flat-screen in a way that hasn't been done by a scripted show in years.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
