    Malibu Country is so old school, in fact, that it feels like a leftover from ABC's TGIF days, complete with a studio audience, an irritating laugh track and a sitcomy march-time pace.

    Although the first episode runs for a bloated 90 minutes, it provides only scant hints of a main plot thread.... So once again, I'm confronted with an AHS season that appears to be more gross than engrossing. Alas, I may not be able to check out of the Hotel Cortez, but at least I can change the channel.

    Much of Tarzan feels more like a marketing strategy than a show, and it seems to have a few flaws that "Smallville" doesn't. Chief among them is the incoherent plotline, which, in the pilot at least, does little to explain the motivations of Pileggi's character. [4 Oct 2003, p.D01]

    Jillian... was so obnoxious and smugly hostile in the opener that I found myself practically rooting for one of the big-bellied contestants to squash her like a common household bug. [26 Oct 2004]

    We're left with a shrill sitcom that's hard not to hate.

    The opener is riddled with juvenile humor consisting of jokes pegged to corpses, crotches and child molestation. It's almost enough to trigger a case of mad cow disease.
