    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]

    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]

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

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

    Run! Run fast and far from We Are Men.

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

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