    A surprisingly refreshing romantic dramedy full of appealing characters.

    Greek is much more than artful manipulation of marketing strategy. The premiere has several surprises even as it dares you to pigeonhole any of these characters. The talented young ensemble cast works hard to sell the stories and mostly succeeds.

    The producers do a nice job of developing characters and delineating the conflict. It's so good that, with only a few tweaks here and a little better dialogue there, it could rival "The Office" as a faux documentary.

    A dependable source of entertaining fright.

    Bee greets viewers with a set of splashy colors, a house band, house singers and house dancers. It's all very hokey, but there's also something lively and real about it.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    It can be pleasant -- even charming at times -- but not much more than that.
    • 27 Metascore

    You get the feeling that if this show is given enough time to find its strengths and understand its characters, it could be around for quite some time.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    This is sassy and superficial but also entertaining, and that's really all it aspires to be.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    Despite some fine performances, it fails to show a connection.
    • 53 Metascore

    Softer than soft porn, Call Girl is as much a documentary about high-end prostitution as it is about the conflicts and foibles of those who engage in it.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    If anything, "In Justice" tries too hard.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    A well-intentioned drama with a few comedic quirks but without depth or greater purpose.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    [It] gets high marks for capturing the spirit and idealism of the staff but only passing grades for storytelling.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    It has potential.

    Despite her position as editor, Emily lives in a world with high school values, where the ultimate achievements are being popular, fitting in, looking good and finding a hot date.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    There are no deep belly laughs here but you can count on a steady stream of chuckles, more from the characters than the situations.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    Despite the intense look at the legal process, the show moves quickly.

    While the series _ based on the 1995 Sandra Bullock film _ is more breathless than brainy, there's enough going on to make you want to stay tuned. [17 July 1998]

    Thomas earns high marks for coming up with appealing characters who are as comfortable as old cardigans.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    The focus is on the dangerous and forbidden relationship between Mick and Beth and his efforts to keep his past a secret. Whether there's enough material there to knit together a series remains to be seen.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    Mostly, it was a tasteful affair.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    Maybe the best thing about this miniseries is the weird assortment of characters.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    Murphy is adept at creating clever mind games between his characters, but moments of true suspense or fright are few and far between.
    • 55 Metascore

    Cleveland has a few delightfully outrageous moments, along with several that are gratuitously gross ("hot fur," anyone?), but its most disconcerting element is its significant resemblance to "Family Guy."
    • 46 Metascore

    The real surprise is that, for all the times King has taken us down this creepy path, he can still evoke chills and thrills over and over again.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    Ironically, the differences among the characters that make the show interesting and even, at times, compelling, also test its credibility.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Barry Garron
    The new series boasts eye-catching animation and dollops of sex and violence but only enough humor to elicit occasional chuckles. If you eliminate the references to sexual perversions, even the smiles are few and far between.

    Simultaneously sexy and relatable, Elfman wins us over with a convincing performance that shows vulnerability just beneath a placid surface.

    A terrific boon to those who can't wait a week between "Friday Night SmackDown!"

    The B-list panel... doesn't measure up to the likes of erudite and quick-witted Henry Morgan or Bill Cullen. But they enjoy themselves, and their fun can be contagious at times.
