    The most puzzling thing about Are You There, Chelsea? is who exactly thought it was a good idea. Because it's not.

    Unfortunately, beyond the strained concept, it has ridiculous dialogue and ludicrous situations that the best actors in the world couldn't salvage.

    The Sharknado 3 team is clearly just making up the most ridiculous stuff possible at this point.

    Morris Chestnut is pretty, and so is Miami, but this show wastes them both.

    Phillip Winchester gets tangled up with Wesley Snipes in Las Vegas in a muddled scenario that involves predicting crimes and seeking vengeance.

    Its problem is too much Ken Jeong. His manic energy takes over every frame of the pilot, at the expense of anything and anyone else in the show.

    One of the new season's bigger disappointments. The frantic pace of this action drama, set behind the scenes in a casino security firm, can't disguise the shallow story-telling and annoying, badly developed characters. James Caan is wasted as the boss, and Josh Duhamel got much better stuff to work with on "All My Children." [22 Sept 2003, p.E6]

    Killing Jesus is apparently satisfied to look and sound vaguely cheesy.

    All the characters lie on the couch a lot. While it's noted that they do have jobs, they seem to spend most of their time eating Oreos and watching TV. (Hey, that's my life. . . .) And they talk, but most of what they have to say isn't very funny. [22 Sept 1994, p.6G]

    Relentlessly grimy and brutally violent, Outsiders is an exhausting trek through mountain muck.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Gail Pennington
    The writing is cliched, the characters cartoonish and the action tedious, punctured by bloodshed.

    A cruel and stupid show built around one Matt Hicks, who vaguely resembles Britain's Prince Harry.

    If you're in the Sharknado fan club, you'll probably like the sequel. If not, you'll probably ignore it and watch something else. In either case, enjoy.

    Save yourself. Run from Stalker.

    All this suggests a by-the-numbers romance novel, but some romance novels are involving, or fun, or lively. Not Mistresses.

    Jane Lynch is, to put it kindly, unbearable. (Trust me; that was putting it kindly.)

    Black people and white people can be best friends, and that's the truth. Apparently, however, that friendship can't be funny, or so Truth Be Told easily convinces us.

    Well, nothing much happens. Danny is a good excuse for a nap. [27 Sept 2001, p.F1]

    Run! Run fast and far from We Are Men.

    Even more obnoxious, although that hardly seems possible, is NBC's Hidden Hills, a crude and unfunny comedy about suburban families. [24 Sept 2002, p.E8]

    This is, hands down, the worst series of the year, with the most annoying lead character in a season with many annoying lead characters.

    The worst of the new season's sitcom crop, Tucker is crude, unfunny and mean-spirited. The only appropriate response is an urge to call child services and have the young star taken into custody. [2 Oct 2000, p.F1]

    Dads is so unfunny that we have plenty of time to contemplate how distasteful the show really is.
