    The mystery makes Pretty Little Liars more entertaining than the tedium of Gossip Girls, and many parents might actually enjoy watching along with their young adults, who can explain why this sort of thing is so alluring to them.

    There's no shame in enjoying the entertainment provided by these game shows, which are a step above some of their TV competition, but if knowing all the answers in 1 vs 100 makes you feel smart, then you must be pretty stupid.

    Close to Home is supposed to be playing on the dark-underbelly-of-the-burbs fascination supposedly stirred by Desperate Housewives. But it's basically just another lawyer/crime show with a mommy twist.

    The whole web would unravel if each character weren't so interesting all by his or her own lonesome self.

    Stunningly flat.

    It's a cornucopia of fanciful sets and costumes and more computer graphic imaging than you'll find anywhere else on TV, and a lot of it is pretty cool.

    10 Items or Less is a quick hit of inanity, as close to The Office as anything else.

    • 80 Jonathan Storm
    It is a finely crafted serial about contemporary and supposedly representative people in the same decade of life.

    The laughless Secret Diary is billed as a comedy, but it is hardly amusing to follow the spoiled, immoral and lazy Belle as she slinks around London doing this and that with and to a lineup of wealthy men.

    The monumental production is worth bragging about.

    I'm already committed to Prison Break. One cockamamy chase show is all my unaddled brain can handle.

    For adults, the thing plays a little like Fox's Prison Break.

    Gossip Girl is a bad mix of the popular book series by Cecily von Ziegesar and the production talents of Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, who made "The O.C."

    Family Guy's asinine asides are thuddingly predictable, inserted roughly into the thread of the cartoon sitcom narrative as a kind of cry for attention, in complete contrast to the organic satire that runs through The Simpsons. [28 Jan 1999]

    It's hard to find one that's not more entertaining than watching one of your winter favorites the second time around. Picking three or four regulars to go with summer's more esoteric fare, which includes Breaking Bad, The Big C, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and some others, makes an excellent TV strategy. The Protector deserves a slot in the rotation.

    I counted 14 breast and genital jokes in the three episodes of 3d Rock From the Sun sent out to critics. Some of them (the jokes, that is) seemingly went on for hours. Most would make even a mature 13-year-old cringe. [9 Jan 1996]

    Cable's FX, which has reliably churned out good watching for most of this decade, drives off a cliff tonight with an offensive and shockingly unfunny sitcom, The League.

    As fans of "Survivor" and "The Amazing Race" know, there are reality shows, and there are reality shows. Who Do You Think You Are? may not be up to those standards, but although it shares none of the game-show attributes of its new NBC cohorts, it's the clear winner.

    So much of the dialogue is just dull explanation, and so much of the action rehashes events that are already known. Worse, sometimes, it repeats itself.

    Some viewers will wrongly believe they need this absorbing and thoroughly entertaining show like a hole in the head.

    Scoundrels, at 9 p.m., and The Gates, at 10, may not be exactly the stuff you can't wait another week for, but both are watchable and fun, part of a big ABC effort to put something new, if not original, on the air most nights this summer.

    The twist ending of the first episode just might persuade remaining viewers to stick around for hour No. 2.

    Don't get this show mixed up with anything important on TV, though you may find it enjoyably diverting, if you can forgive the immorality of its premiere episode. I can't. [23 Sept 2003, p.C09]

    Greetings From Tucson tones things down a lot between its first episode, which airs tonight, and its second episode next Friday. Tonight, everybody just screams jokes at each other, but next week we learn that the people in the family - Mexican American, Irish American and half-and-half - might actually have some real emotions. [20 Sept 2002, p.D13]

    The next time McKidd hits the time warp, he should take his producers with him. Maybe they'd bring back a better show.

    So what if it's as superficial as a flesh wound? There's plenty of style.

    A caper that's as clever and grandiose as any TV series has presented in a long time. And fun.

    With appalling canards about toilet training and the heftiness of Hillary Clinton's behind, it doesn't really matter if, like Raymond, the show focuses on a family in Queens, or that stars Kevin James and Leah Remini actually project a modicum of appeal. [21 Sept 1998, p.C05]

    The show, with a strange and hard-to-believe conspiracy underpinning, requires a leap of faith, but Swayze himself, gaunt and intensely energetic, is magnificent.

    Cougar Town, a title that the capable executive producer, Bill Lawrence, acknowledges might turn some people off. He needn't worry. The show itself has more than enough power to do that.
