    Underemployed is simply and irreparably underwhelming.

    It creeps and creeps in a very petty pace until it puts itself out of its misery, and ours.

    Start-Ups isn't very good, or very original, neither of which should come as a huge surprise. But what's really too bad is that the show misses a great opportunity to capture the singular mix of ambition and creativity that makes Silicon Valley so special.

    The show isn't funny, but worse, it's not interesting. The characters are dull, the performances off the mark at virtually every level, and the writing is flatter than a deflated implant.

    The film compartmentalizes the public and presumed private lives of Taylor and Burton with little sense of the whole and little sense of who these people really were.

    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.
    • 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.

    What's really sad about the show is that without the painful Hall of Fame discussion there's not much substance to Hits & Mrs.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    The show is laughable, but I suspect the writers are dead serious.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    The performances run the gamut from woeful to out-and-out terrible, but in some cases, you can't blame the actors because no one is sufficiently talented to deliver the lines of creator Matthew Parkhill's script with even minimal credibility.

    A mostly appealing cast is wasted in a laugh-starved show about a relentless screw-up of a man-child who has never been able to find a career path, much less make his dad proud of him.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    [The] moderately appealing cast is wasted in a show about three children of a recently deceased rich guy who have to compete among themselves to become the sole heir to his $23 million estate.
    • 45 Metascore

    There's virtually no intelligent or convincing exploration of character in the film, beyond the shopworn theory that she craved fame to validate herself, but traded whatever "self" she had to get it.

    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.

    Nothing could bring this show life.

    The acting is terrible throughout, but it's hard to blame the cast, including newly minted Emmy winner Cromwell, for having to utter some of this dialogue.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    The performances are OK, and it would be nice to see Helfer in better material, but the scripts are not just cliche-ridden--they're moth-eaten.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    The dialogue is so awful, it probably doesn't matter that most of the performances are inauthentic.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    He's worked from an overthought idea and larded it up with remnants of other shows, and the result isn't worth your time.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    The cast is likable, until they open their mouths to deliver the fourth-rate dialogue.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    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.

    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.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    The acting is terrible, the direction is indifferent, the story implausible.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 25 David Wiegand
    The show has a few moments, but it simply tries too hard overall. It is unforgivably guilty of wasting Martin's comedic gifts.

    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.

    It takes two episodes to begin to understand it, and once you do, you may not care much, except for the presence of some very respectable actors.
    • 38 Metascore

    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.

    Actually, the show is so bland, it feels better suited for ABC Family
    • 34 Metascore

    [An] overheated, badly written, wretchedly acted and unconvincing drama, which makes mincemeat out of the traditional beauty and the beast fairy tale.

    The two-taste-treats-in-one thing worked for Hostess Ding-Dongs, so maybe Fox figured it would work for this ding-dong of a dud for the masochists in the crowd.
