    Most of the performances are pretty laughable.... It’s too bad SyFy didn’t invest more in a better script and direction.

    There are a couple of funny lines, mostly from Rebecca Mader, who plays mean-mouthed regional sales leader Grace, but overall, the humor is about as inauthentic as the guys' drag.

    The show seems to exhaust its small comedic possibilities with the first episode, not to mention viewer interest.

    The plot is one telegraphed event after another, so that the only enjoyment to be found in sitting through this thing is timing when a blatantly preordained event will actually occur.

    Red Widow staggers into an already listless mid-season Sunday on ABC with a premise borrowed from Dutch TV, a second-tier cast and consistently unconvincing writing throughout.

    For the humans, nothing ensues that can't be predicted by a comatose cockatoo.

    While the actors in Glory Days are attractive and not without talent, they're ill served by the hackneyed writing and desperate plot. These boys have only one thing on their minds and it isn't matriculation.

    Wanting soap and dirt--a lot of dirt--he [creator Greg Berlanti] has fashioned something that's watchable only if you completely divorce it from the realm of credibility.

    A puffy documentary by Jeffrey Roth about President George H.W. Bush that ends up being a boring and uninformative disservice to the former president.

    The dialogue is so awful, it probably doesn't matter that most of the performances are inauthentic.
    • 49 Metascore

    The melodrama is thicker and more implausible than the tarlike gunk oozing out of that tree at the beginning of Sunday's premiere, but there are adequate performances to balance the painfully over-the-top dialogue, at least.

    Underemployed is simply and irreparably underwhelming.

    If this show was premiering even a decade ago, it might not feel as stale and out of place as it does in today's sitcom world.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    The acting is terrible, the direction is indifferent, the story implausible.
    • 65 Metascore

    The cast is likable, until they open their mouths to deliver the fourth-rate dialogue.

    No, you won't and shouldn't laugh at neurological disorders, but there are enough writing disorders to keep you in stitches until someone issues a DNR order on Black Box.

    The cast is OK, although Mulaney tries so hard to make them hilariously wacky that each one comes off as a version of Cecily Strong’s the Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Started a Conversation With at a Party.

    It's virtually impossible to care about the characters, and not only is the show without a single laugh line, its attempts at humor come off as brittle and nasty.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    The writing (Heldens and Peter Elkoff) is atrocious, the direction (Peter Horton and Jonas Pate) slow and flabby, and the performances run the gamut from sad to just adequate, but even proven actors like Garber couldn't make us care about any of this.

    The conceit of Boyd's book and this mini-epic is provocative, but unfortunately, the reality is something else.

    Allen's show may be a clone of "Home Improvement," but it's somewhat watchable. Man Up just isn't.

    There may be something salvageable here--this kind of odd couple pairing worked great in, well, "The Odd Couple"--but the pilot is virtually humorless.

    The sloppy sentimentality is cheap and unearned, greasy camera lenses notwithstanding.

    Usually, follow-ups to goofy films like the first "Sharknado" suffer because the makers are too conscious of the original. In this case, though, they just don't seem to give a shark.

    Actually, the bigger danger is in watching the show in the first place: You might die of boredom. In other words, don't try this at home.

    The writing is a big problem. It's just not funny.

    Longmire has the look and feel of a show cooked up by a bunch of bored TV industry types while they were waiting for the valet to bring their car to them at the Beverly Hills Chuck E. Cheese.

    Miss Advised can be summed up simply as "dating and relationship expert, heal thyself," to which we might add: "Just do it where we don't have to watch."

    Unfortunately, no amount of tweaking can save Unsupervised from itself. It's just a sad waste of good intentions and great talent.

    Even with such dreadful scripts and the phony noise of canned laughter, the four reasons to kind of watch maybe a little of Dads are the core actors. You don't have to watch more than a couple of minutes to know they deserve much, much better, and so do we.
