    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Jonathan Storm
    A fun show with broad appeal. [6 Oct 1999, p.D01]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Jonathan Storm
    A sunny and often funny mix of "Twin Peaks," "Law & Order," and "Flipper." [4 Aug 1998, p.D01]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Jonathan Storm
    It's crude and hilarious and clearly aimed at a young male audience.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    More inviting than the usual run of sitcom idiocy.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    The whole thing perks along like a Honda Civic and is just about as exciting.

    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.

    These medical shows aren't brain surgery, but most of them are dead on arrival anyway. Three Rivers shows up at least with a healthy pulse.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    This family show isn't in the same area code as that paragon of television, but for those of us who can't go time-traveling, it'll do in a pinch. [27 Sept 2002, p.E11]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    The supporting cast, especially Jenna Fischer as the pretty but timid receptionist ("I don't think it's many girls' dream to be a receptionist") and Rainn Wilson as an obsessive, humorless drone, helps keep the pencils sharp when boss Scott gets too unfunny in his attempts to create an easygoing office atmosphere. [24 Mar 2005, p.D01]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    Just about everybody in this cast is superb. Maybe the production team, headed by Gary David Goldberg, who did Fox's "Family Ties" and the cuddly "Brooklyn Bridge", will fix all the first episode's flaws. Too many halfhearted gay and orgasm jokes bring to mind too many of last year's tired Friends imitators.[17 Sept 1996, p.D01]

    Viewers certainly like this sort of thing. CBS has become the No. 1 network with an incessant stream of it, and Criminal Minds is as well-made as any of them.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    A caper that's as clever and grandiose as any TV series has presented in a long time. And fun.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    Kindness is the true beauty of Will & Grace, and it may be that kindness, in the midst of so much of the mean-spirited, demeaning stuff that passes for comedy on TV, will carry the day. [21 Sep 1998]

    • 66 Metascore

    Cold Case doesn't know Philly. Too often the few authentic exteriors - Boathouse Row, for instance - give way to some generic Los Angeles location. The show itself is full of references to nonexistent places and situations. [28 Sept 2003, p.H01]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    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.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    That's about where this show sits, on the rails, but with a little journey ahead to get from captain to rear admiral.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    You hope the show doesn't get stuck in sexual shenanigans week after week. Even 30-year-olds think about other things sometimes. But for now, it seems fair to follow Emily's lead and see what develops.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    When the heroes look like this, you don't have to sweat the details. [9 Oct 2002, p.D09]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    Part soap opera, part horror movie, all whodunit, Harper's is diverting, and only infrequently frightening, fantasy soap opera.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    So what if it's as superficial as a flesh wound? There's plenty of style.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    The show is ugly and fixated on death and violence. There's lots of lurid sex, too, reflected in other title images. There's also creativity and flat-out breathtaking acting to instill a voyeuristic fascination and perhaps inspire a fanatic.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    It's a show-off show, the most impressive new series of the season, of many seasons, but it has one big deficit. Like the Tin Man, it has no heart. Maybe it will grow one, and it will certainly bear watching for a few weeks to see if it does. [22 Sept 1999, p.C01]
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 28 Metascore

    You may also laugh at some of these jokes, because Michael Rapaport, who plays Daddy Dave, delivers them with such bravado.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    It's a supernatural mystery, involving a few ghosts, a little time travel and lots of crazy people. People who have been missing The X-Files might really go for The Lost Room.

    Subtract James Woods from Shark, and you'd have an empty carcass. Instead, you have a carcass with James Woods and all his crazy energy inside.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    Despite the loud music and all the supposedly ominous foolishness, blood that even spatters the camera lenses, and a sexy proto-vamp who often manages to wear almost no clothes (OK, maybe not despite her), I kind of liked the stupid thing.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    [It] would be an above-average Masterpiece [Theatre] installment.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    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.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    For adults, the thing plays a little like Fox's Prison Break.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Storm
    There's plenty of that low-key humor that characterized Ed, and the show can be hilarious when the crew gets involved in Keystone Kops capers, but it drags in the middle ground.
