    The story’s fine. It’s just filled with a bunch of overacting and poorly orchestrated scenes.

    That’s the setup for this story [A meteor crashes to earth in New Mexico, sending out shockwaves that affect five people], which is unevenly acted but features a compelling story about angels.

    It has its moments. It just needs a few more of them.

    I found little interesting in Wicked City until Erika Christensen became a part of it halfway through the pilot.

    It's a ho-hum procedural with a new story each week, but I like how the series strives for authenticity in setting and costumes.

    The comedy is “Rescue Me”-like, but lighter, with less angst.

    In Assets, I wanted more about Ames and his motives--and maybe that will come later--but this is Grimes’ story, right down to how her job affected her home life.

    Give me a little more music and a little less soap opera, and we may have something here.

    The new sitcom is formulaic, with one joke following another punctuated by a laugh track--even when the jokes aren’t funny, and many of them are not.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Jeff Korbelik
    This one’s preachy, overly dramatic and everything you would expect from a show like this.

    Ellis is charming, but this nothing more than another buddy cop procedural.

    There’s a third storyline involving a cow. Really, I’m not kidding. These, I’m guessing will come together, at some point, but I’m not sure I’ll be willing to wait that long for the payoff.

    If you like “Family Guy’s” crude, lewd and offensive humor, you’ll love this one. I lasted 15 minutes.
    • 59 Metascore

    The story sort of has a “Bourne Identity” element to it. The pilot is an eye-roller, with the main storyline featuring Bean infiltrating a survivalist camp.
    • 49 Metascore

    It’s mildly amusing.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Jeff Korbelik
    The first hour is confusing and the acting a bit forced, so it may try your patience.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Jeff Korbelik
    A little over the top--well, actually, a lot over the top--the pilot is filled with one eye-rolling surprise after another.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Jeff Korbelik
    The drama is nothing more than a video game, with a story secondary to the blood and sex.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Jeff Korbelik
    It’s a family comedy, one of many on the network, that, at times, has its moments. There’s just too few of them.

    Kazinsky is bland. As is the seen-it-before strained relationship between him and his “son,” an FBI agent played by Tim DeKay. The strange dynamic between twin brother and sister, however, is the reason I will give it a second chance.

    P.D.'s also loud--the percussive soundtrack is headache-inducing--formulaic and predictable, not at all like "The Shield."
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Jeff Korbelik
    The action is good, with all three actors receiving and dishing out their fair share of abuse, but the story is, literally, difficult to follow.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 42 Jeff Korbelik
    The pilot is mildly amusing. Neither Foo, nor Hires, is as engaging as Tucker and Chan, and the chemistry between them is lacking.

    Sometimes it’s funny, but most of the time it’s just bizarre.
    • 60 Metascore

    Fans of the books probably will like it because they know what the heck is happening. I was lost.
    • 51 Metascore

    A few more stabs at 1990s pop culture would go a long way in making this better.
    • 44 Metascore

    The comedy comes off as a less funny “Modern Family,” with the daughters uncannily similar (one’s dim and fashionable; the other is smart and geeky) to the “MF” girls.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 42 Jeff Korbelik
    Other than Zane, the acting is sub-par and the writing painful.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 42 Jeff Korbelik
    The pilot is rough, with much of the humor dealing with sex and male genitalia, which seems like something you would find in a Seth McFarlane show.
