    There are some funny lines here and there, but overall, the show lacks satirical teeth.

    And, in most cases, he has a concept for how the food will look, then has to figure out how to make it work. Taste is important, but seems to be somewhat of an afterthought.

    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.

    Aquarius is watchable, but oddly bland, given its subject matter. It’s not so much “Helter Skelter” as it is “The Long and Winding Road.”

    USA’s new international thriller is fun to watch and makes almost no sense whatsoever.

    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.

    Things don't really start heating up until the second and third shows of the new season. It's difficult to imagine where the series can go in the future, though.

    The sitcom, premiering Thursday night, is perfectly adequate, but only that, and it doesn't compare well to the show Cummings co-created, "2 Broke Girls," which premiered Monday on CBS.

    The series is kind of a mess, but one you can't really look away from.

    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.

    The writing is loaded with cheap sentimentality, and dripping with saline poignancy, as you might expect. The likability of the young cast members almost counterbalances the schmaltz.

    The show is moderately entertaining, mostly because of the appeal of the three leads.

    Regardless of the memories and anecdotes, what these films lack are commentators who can provide cultural context.

    When the balance is off, as it is too frequently in Harry's Law, it undermines credibility. Bates is almost capable of making us overlook some of the show's problems.

    Rainn Wilson can carry a series, just not this one, as written. That doesn’t mean it’s a complete mess, but there are significant credibility problems on several levels that need to be addressed to build effectively on Wilson’s likability.

    On paper, the set-up and the plot may seem workable, but in reality, the characters are both over-written and under-thought. The writers seem to have gone overboard finding layers and layers of trumped up psychology to make the characters more interesting. In so doing, they’ve also made them less credible.

    Pieces of the familiar Arthurian epic are preserved in the script, but that doesn't mean the characters fit our images of them.

    It's hard to think of anyone likable among the main characters, except for Jeremy. And that's the sly point of the show.

    The comedy--anything but edgy--is one cee-ment pond and half a fancy eatin' table away from "The Beverly Hillbillies," and is rooted in the inevitable culture clash of a Tennessee family adjusting to life in Southern California.

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

    Although the script isn't quite as memorable as Tarantino's film script, it is faithful to the events of the film as well as the signature mix of over-the-top violence, cartoonish dialogue and just a hint, so far, of the vampires who will form a welcoming party when the brothers get across the border to Mexico.

    The performances are over the top and enjoyable enough.
    • 57 Metascore

    The show was created by Courtney Kemp Agboh and has so much going for it--on the surface, anyway--that it's almost criminal that a powerful, attractive cast and high-end production values are hobbled by such a stupefying absence of originality.

    The show itself is slight, the conceit perhaps worthy of an extended sketch, but after two episodes, it begins to feel stretched.

    Depending on your POV and perhaps your age, the show is either rather bland or exactly what you’d expect from the CW.

    There's nothing terribly memorable about it other than the appeal of the cast members. And that was earned from previous films and shows.

    Funny in places, but after three viewings of Sunday's debut episode, I'm still trying to figure out if and how the series will advance the original film.
    • 59 Metascore

    Oddly enough, although the dialogue is rarely funny, the show is rife with background details suggesting how much potential is wasted here.

    Hodges has done a good job weaving new plot twists and characters into the familiar story. The Musketeers may not be either the greatest treatment of the Dumas tale or the most revolutionary, but it is fun for all, and all for fun.

    No matter the casting changes, Spartacus remains good, dirty fun.
