    King and Maxwell banter like a fourth-rate Nick and Nora Charles.... This stuff is much more credible, and interesting, in series like "Castle" and "Bones," but, again, those shows have better actors than Romijn as well as better writers.

    The odd episode of Hello Ladies has its moments, but it's difficult to imagine where the show can go. Merchant has painted himself into a corner with an unlikeable central character wandering through a shopworn stereotype of Los Angeles.

    The pilot is fast-paced and gripping, as the team closes in on the killer. After the fact, it's all fairly preposterous, but there's enough going on through the show to maintain our interest.

    Yes, Arias (Tania Raymonde), comes off as a narcissistic, sexually manipulative psycho, but because we never get a convincing take on Alexander (Jesse Lee Soffer), the film is confusing.

    The good thing about Sean Saves the World is that it's an ensemble show. The bad thing about that for the show is that we're often happier to see the supporting characters onscreen than we are Sean, who is funny from time to time but whose constant state of frenzy gets tiresome.

    Ironside might be a better show if it didn't follow the "rules" of standard police procedurals quite so faithfully.

    Like so many reality shows, Below Deck takes the idea of disparate types thrown together in a controlled environment and capitalizes on two seemingly inevitable results: Friction and sexual tension.

    Camp essentially needs to calm down and narrow its central focus on maybe half the characters and storylines it bombards us with.

    Parts of it are funny, but it feels more like an adult's creation.

    The performances are over the top and enjoyable enough.

    The performances really are good, almost good enough to make the hokey dialogue believable, but not quite good enough to make Low Winter Sun a must-see when there are so many other shows--about cops and otherwise--that do this moral ambiguity thing much better.

    You may think the whole idea of adults dressing up as fantasy characters is silly, but the dedication and craftsmanship of the cosplayers easily convinces you otherwise. What's unclear is whether competitive cosplaying is too rarefied to sustain multiple episodes. But as a one-off, it's, well, fantastic enough.

    What's missing from the show are the very things that make so many reality shows intolerable and, sadly, make them hits as well. No one's nuts, no one is a raging alcoholic or a jealous maniac, the dads don't get into fistfights, and the only misbehaving you'll see on the show can be fixed with a simple diaper change.

    There is something here for sure but the show has yet to find its footing.

    The Witches of East End may not win a Peabody anytime soon, but to its mildly enjoyable credit, it doesn't take itself too seriously.

    After the pilot, the next three episodes become a little desperate, to the point of straining character credibility in several cases. The best thing Enlisted has going for it is the chemistry between the actors playing the three brothers.

    While the film's tone may fit the kind of fuzzy warmth of most Hallmark Channel fare, it doesn't fit the tension and brutality of what African Americans experienced in Alabama in 1963.

    The cast is charming, and no one has to work very hard.

    The actors make Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight seem better than it is, but the real Ali, with all his youth, vigor, bravado and passion, convinces us that he and his case deserved much better.

    No one comes off as very likable in the four episodes sent to critics, but all the characters are fascinating, often as much for what we suspect about their inner nature as for what they say aloud.

    The character complexities, special effects and attention to detail position The 100 well on the CW food chain.

    The script, by director Stephen Poliakoff, who also directs, has its good parts, but every few minutes, the quality is undone by characters announcing things to advance the plot, as opposed to dramatizing events.

    You won't come away from it with any new answers, but it's a useful reminder of why the drama of that day has transfixed Americans for half a century.

    The comedy is predictable on every level, which is part of the TV Land formula.
    • 54 Metascore

    The script is workmanlike rather than inspired or in any way profound.

    There's nothing all that original about Helix, but it works well enough. The script gets bogged down in soap opera suds from time to time, especially when it involves the love triangle.

    Fleming has its moments, but they are too few and even farther between. The last of the four episodes is the best, but you have to slog through the other three to get there.

    [Viewers] figure there will be sex and nudity, blood and violence. Black Sails has most of that, but there isn't enough action in the first four episodes. If you give us a pirate series, we want to see ships going at it on the high seas.

    The show seems a pale imitation of "The Goldbergs," the much funnier ABC show created by Adam F. Goldberg based on his own childhood.
    • 66 Metascore

    Instead of thinking so much about complicated moral themes and Shakespearean redos, the show's creator and writers would have been better off trying to make the story credible and the characters three-dimensional and realistic.
