    An annoying voice constantly explains what he is thinking, things like "What am I?" "Where did I come from?" Surprisingly, he never asks, "What am I doing on this stupid show?" [20 Sept 2002, p.D13]

    TV needs a lot of fodder to fill the schedule, but junk like Outlaw should be outlawed, with a special-circumstances punishment for completely wasting as fine a talent as Jimmy Smits.

    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]

    [Its] intolerable length helps to illuminate the cynicism of these competition shows.

    It's ugly and bloated, too, bringing back memories of tawdry times, tasteless fashion and terrible music.

    It seems to have an awful lot in common with a group of shows that never [found themselves], the generic and unfunny fodder that NBC threw up between its popular comedies back when it ruled Thursday nights with Friends, Seinfeld, Frasier, and Will and Grace.

    All sorts of things in In Justice... don't make sense.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 20 Jonathan Storm
    Despite oodles of cool effects, it lands, splat, in a pile of nonsense and dim dialogue.

    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.

    It's ABC's idea of good, clean fun. Sad that it's the best idea the network could have.

    3 Lbs. is the most boring new show this season.

    There's no laugh track, so maybe it's all supposed to be sophisticated and delightfully risque. But nobody will be mistaking Rushfield and Konner for Noel Coward or Oscar Wilde.

    The sooner this kind of programming goes down the drain, the sooner we'll have a chance to see more original, entertaining, and far less disgusting series, like Blue Bloods and The Defenders.

    Executive producer Craig Wright sent a second episode out to critics "to give you an idea of where we're going," he said. The wrong direction, sadly, even after a disappointing pilot. I turned it off when the naked guy and girl in the bed started making big-banana jokes.

    The network may have a new name, but it's presenting the same old desperate, low-budget foolishness.

    So instead of a fascinating drama about what happens to the predominantly black police force of Washington, D.C., when a white chief is brought in, we get a cockamamie mishmash headed by an unpleasant lunatic, with more subplots than Forest Lawn Cemetery. [6 Oct 2000]

    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."

    The Farrellys finish in second place [of having the dumbest show this Sunday], directing a sitcom, Unhitched (Sunday 9:30 p.m., Fox 29), about four clowns who struggle stupidly with their newly single status.

    Simplistic and shamelessly manipulative.

    Elfman and Coleman do their best to inject some fun into the same old stuff.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 20 Jonathan Storm
    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.

    It's amazing there's no orthopedist, since the show's so lame.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Jonathan Storm
    Well, a lot of thought and money goes into advertising, and basing a show on characters that emerged from that effort and expense is no more bogus on its face than making up ridiculous excuses for human beings out of thin air, like the men in Carpoolers.

    [Episode 2's] Jenna, we learn, has basically been drunk since January, which is probably a pretty good condition for anyone who wants to get real laughs out of The Loop.

    Astute observers may find no coincidence that it mimics the American soap The Bold and the Beautiful.

    The show is so bad, it might be gone anyway, quickly canceled as ABC scrambles to recover from an 0-for-2 comedy start on its new spring schedule.

    You can only hope that Blitt, a first-time executive producer, will tire of middle-school humor and move to something a little more satisfying for grown-ups.

    One of the most flat-footed sitcoms of the year.
    • 45 Metascore

    Everything's so shrill and flat, it's hard to tell when the writing stops and the improvisation begins.
    • 64 Metascore

    There's nothing inviting about the ponderous Threshold. Portentous music plays. Scared smart guys, rounded up by the government to figure out what's really happening, say smart-guy stupid stuff.
