    Even for those who aren't old enough to remember the so-called trial of the century in great detail, this nostalgia-stoking enterprise largely exudes a contemptuous sense of observation. In dramatizations of less knowable incidents, the filmmakers bluntly and mockingly acknowledge the key players' behind-the-scenes travails.

    Like many an episode, it has a way of unexpectedly disarming you with the way man and woman arrive as if by abstract accident at a place of mutual understanding, and the effect is almost cosmic in its good-heartedness.

    Right off the bat, this new season strongly hints that the series will continue to ruminate on primal sensations of fear and survival, but that it will be more content to allow action, as opposed to a plethora of argumentative moral debates, to speak to such existential matters.

    I don't know what's worse about Desperate Housewives: its contempt for women, its shrill sense of humor, the incessant tinkle of its Elfman-esque score, or its lame attempts at making its Backlot, Hollywood aesthetic seem as if it exists in the real world.

    The all-star cast, which includes Hector Elizondo as the patriarch of the Duque family and Jimmy Smits as the adopted son who inherits principal control of the old man's sugar cane business in a contentious handover, bring authenticity to what is otherwise a hysterical, Dynasty-style vision of Cuban-American experience set in and around kitschy Miami.

    A good drama but an average psychological study.

    Week in, week out, Ugly Betty subjects its audience to the same recycled crisis.

    Only the show's third episode ("Muslims and America") shows profound resonance.

    Like Lisa Kudrow on the heinous The Comeback, Parker brings a great performance to a less than one-dimensional part.

    The film is already a lost cause from its opening scene, during which an old woman wearing a Star of David necklace walks into a polling station and appears stricken by either IBS or Alzheimer's after accidentally screwing up her butterfly ballot.

    Its exploitative, one-sided formula represents a shallow representation of gay culture. ... If the show is remotely watchable it's because the hands involved in its making always manage to sink to heretofore unknown lows, and one could say it's a duty, if not exactly a privilege, to document the fall.

    Like Lost, the show seems predicated on an unsustainable premise, but Prison Break is moving along more briskly.

    Throughout, the series suggests that it’s been market-tested to a place where originality no longer has a place to bloom.
    • 54 Metascore

    The series fails so spectacularly on the level of characterization that its occasional grace notes, mostly concerning how catastrophe changes the circuitry of family dynamics, feel accidentally stumbled upon.
