    Those two alone [Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader) and Liz Keen (Megan Boone)] are worth watching Blacklist, but the drama's storytelling is powerful enough to make you commit to it from the very first episode.

    While Hawaii Five-0 Mark II has none of its predecessor's cringe factor, the classic theme music retains its blood-rushing quality with a sharp, updated recording. And when McGarrett first utters the infamous line, "Book 'em Danno," we dare you not to let a little grin escape.

    A solid cast with tangible family chemistry make Blue Blood a contender.

    Rake has enough varied story elements to not fall into the procedural courtroom drama. Kinnear is a natural in the starring role, effortlessly making the shambles of his character's life seem not only plausible, but also sympathetic.

    With Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood) as creator and producer, About a Boy could very well be the next universally appealing family show.

    The nutty parents in Growing Up Fisher do a good job of playing their extreme characters, instinctually making their eccentricities acceptable and funny rather than far-fetched and excessive. In contrast, the Growing Up Fisher children are so grounded and adult, but play that off with a world-weary-ness that is engaging.

    Despite the disappearance of his top lip when smiling, newcomer Wolk employs the same conman charm on the viewer. Rooting for both the wife and the girlfriend--maybe a little bit more for the latter, Lone Star has the makings for a sudsy tune-in.

    The Trophy Wife characters are well developed and the actors very natural in their roles. The kids are brilliant--particularly Tsai.

    Star-Crossed is a by-the-numbers, odds-against, inter-species, teenage love story.

    Mixology has sharp-witted lines that are genuinely funny--if at times highly sexist--rather than being gratuitous, clichés, or too-obvious puns.

    The efficiency and charisma of these two, enhanced by the haute couture and clichéd exotic locales, makes watching Undercovers really fun-but not very believable as a spy drama. It is all a little too casual and humorous to be convincing.

    Nothing groundbreaking, but every so often a sports-themed show is de rigueur
    • 46 Metascore

    More risk-taking with the jokes and stepping up to the comedy from the rest of the cast and the show might eventually become something--and that's only if they can come up with enough stories for what is essentially a thin, workplace/home life crossover sitcom.

    The acting lacks conviction, but with a script this predictably sudsy, acting chops aren't at the top of the required list.

    If you can tolerate the overly histrionic pilot and are curious enough to find out what "the event" actually is, of which there is no mention in the pilot, then NBC has a Lost-esque show on its hands. Count me out.

    [The actors'] experience and timing makes the writing work better than it is written, but they are working overtime to get that to happen.

    Underwood always plays overconfident characters, and Ironside is no exception, but the wheelchair aspect makes it feel like he is trying too hard. None of the other characters are defined enough to balance out anything Underwood is doing. The stories are textbook cop fodder.

    The clichés are too silly and obvious.

    For a comedy, We Are Men is, in a word, sad.

    Welcome to the Family's storyline is so predictable, it doesn't warrant watching.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Lily Moayeri
    The main storyline isn't strong enough and the incongruous peripheral elements just confuse rather than engage the viewer.

    The rest of Detroit 1-8-7's cast is fill-in-the-blanks police fodder. The only two characteristics that separate this show is one, it is filmed wholly in Detroit (who cares, a soundstage looks just as convincing) and two, the cameras are handheld (who cares, that shakiness can become very annoying).

    The characters are cookie-cutter, the dialogue predictable, the jokes stale and flat, completely unexpected from a sitcom veteran.

    With such a superior comedy cast, it's deplorable how far this badly written and directed show has dragged them down.

    In under 10 minutes, Outsourced manages to hit numerous offensive Indian stereotypes, borders on being racist, and not remotely funny.
