While it initially failed to engage and its ambition outreaches its budget, by the end of the 60 minutes, the layered story had created a world worth returning to in a week’s time.

For me, “Her” wasn’t a cautionary tale of technological doomsday. Jonze’s script isn’t cynical about the ways screens take over our lives, nor does it romanticize or glorify the wonders of technology. It belongs somewhere in the middle, like me.

It’s a formulaic premise: unsure women in their twenties trying to get by in the big city. It’s a description that adheres to “Girls” and “New Girl,” but “Broad City” isn’t a show about girls — it’s a show about hustlin’, outlandish and hilarious broads.

Just when it borders on absurdity, “Like Father, Like Daughter” is grounded by gut wrenching, substantial drama, brought together by superb writing, unique direction and unrelenting performances.

Season three will likely be remembered only for its memorable stunts and plot twists, but that’s hardly enough to make for an excellent show. If this season is any indication, we should expect more of the same when the show returns for its fourth season: plenty of action and fun, but a disappointing lack of substance.

“The Following” ’s fear factor comes not from the actions of the killers, but from the deliberate and brilliant pacing with which each big shot is presented. The merciless, blood-drenched execution scenes are presented bluntly, forcing viewers to accept them as they come, while more subtle moments surprise you with the cold-blooded calculations of the predator.
