    Black Box, a miserable mess of an ABC drama that comes with the trendy and suspiciously convenient "limited series" label, is about a brilliant neuroscientist trying to keep a lid on the fact she's got bipolar disorder. To be clear, she has what television imagines bipolar disorder to be, mired in cuckoo Jekyll/Hyde stereotypes. Black Box's biggest flaw is that it has zero intuition for its own (apparently unintentional) acts of camp, attempting to say something meaningful about the stigma of mental illness when everything about the show is pure crackpot.

    As bracing as the snowy vistas in the movie on which it is based, FX's Fargo quickly establishes itself as its own property, possessing the tone and style of the rightly admired Coen brothers classic, but pursuing a new tawdry true-crime tale, albeit in similar environs. Boasting a stellar cast and hypnotic tone, is Fargo worth a 10-episode commitment? You betcha.

    It makes sense for CBS to premiere its new sitcom Friends With Better Lives after Monday's one-hour finale of the nine-season ratings magnet, How I Met Your Mother. The placement should give the new show a bit of a bump before it moves to its regular time slot next week. It's also good that HIMYM won't be around then, though, because its presence would provide a weekly reminder of what a great ensemble show really is. The show was created by former Friends producer Dana Klein and has potential if the characters can be given more dimension and the writing is vastly improved — as it is, the jokes are so hackneyed, you can almost speak the punch lines in unison with the cast. And isn't that fun?

    Of all the new-show pilots for the 2013-14 TV season that arrived in my mail bin almost a year ago, Surviving Jack, a new Fox sitcom, was by far my favorite. Set in the early 1990s, it stars Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU, True Blood, Oz) as a no-nonsense dad who takes over most of the parenting tasks of a two-teenager family when his wife takes up the study of law. The concept has a lot of The Wonder Years in its chassis, but Meloni is behind the wheel all the way. It's a terrific comedic performance.

    OWN has sought to surround Lindsay — its docu-series devoted to Lindsay Lohan — with a patina of seriousness and quality, from touting the involvement of director Amy Rice (By The People: The Election of Barack Obama) to preceding it with a showcase in which the channel's namesake interviews Russell Brand about addiction. But seriously, who's fooling whom? In the best Hollywood tradition, the Oprah Winfrey-Discovery network and the tabloid-plagued actress are using each other, the irony being that if Lohan stays on the straight and narrow, she'll yield a show as boring as the premiere.
