    NBC's new Bionic Woman remake is a desolate slab of ice where any resemblance to human beings - alive, dead or cyborgian--is purely coincidental. It's hard to imagine a bigger modernized mess being made

    Nobody seems to be having any fun here, not even lording-it-over-everybody Ming. You'd think next week's second episode might be better, once all that exposition is out of the way, but you'd be wrong. It's even more lifeless.

    These folks wouldn't be paranoid if they thought critics loathed their forced and annoying show and widely predicted it would be the season's first to tank. [6 Oct 2000, p.B51]

    If this is comedy, who needs it? [24 Sept 2002, p.B27]

    A groaner from beginning to end.

    The whole project feels salaciously sleazy, unless you're enjoying the proceedings, in which case it's juicily depraved.

    ABC's little-girl gang of four represents nothing more than cliches.

    The storms in this production have more personality than the characters who chase, study and prepare for them.

    Forced, frantic and continually preposterous.

    NBC's superficial knockoff is just Lipstick on a pig.

    At least "Men in Trees" doesn't tax your brain. Just your patience, taste and intelligence.

    There's nothing unexpected here, and certainly no adventure, just who's sleeping with whom, and who's the daddy, and why they're still so juvenile, and how Tom Berenger ended up in this soapy soup.

    Viewers are expected to swallow - worse, to savor - simplistic recycling of melodrama plots seen a hundred times before.

    Our mouths may be open, but more likely agape than laughing.

    [A] treacly piece of tripe.

    Little of it adds up to much of anything but foul-minded mischief.

    No matter where the goofy "Desperate Housewives" goes, it's not into the toilet, which is where Big Shots spends its time both literally and figuratively.

    There's not a whiff of actual life here, no grounding character like "Arrested Development's" Jason Bateman . There's just frantic, false and tiresome.

    The plastic "punch lines" grow more contrived. The tired stereotypes feel more offensive.

    It's all about the women-in-terror kick of frying them alive. (Oct. 15's episode promises a bride who's shot during her wedding.) Reprehensible.
