    The acting is quite good, despite the fact that everyone is the same age, not particularly interesting, or even odd, and are all startlingly good-looking. The writing is good, if you can get past some cheesy dialogue.

    The show is so slow-moving that you may find yourself fighting vainly the old ennui.

    Life Is But A Dream is a vanity project that could have been a helluva film--if she had given up control and let the story tell itself.

    Shepherd is the star, and she does a good job of, er, Shepherding the show and making her character very likeable and accessable. I only wish the women characters were deliberately funny, instead of being accidentally funny from being stupid.

    All in all, brainless fun.

    If you've never had an in terested suitor impose the Big Gesture on you, then ABC's revival of the 1990s dramedy Cupid is so not up your alley that you may as well live on Mt. Olympus. And that just happens to be where Cupid (Bobby Cannavale) comes from in this sweet, not-horrible show.

    The supporting cast, Kate's British co-worker at the bar, BJ ("Do you know what BJ means in my country?") played by Lucy Punch, and Ben's best friend Tommy (Echo Kellum), are the glue that holds this bro and sister together. Or at least this show together.

    Interesting premise, good acting, some very crisp dialogue - but there's still a way to grow.

    It’s all OK, but the problem is that there still isn’t anyone to really care much about.

    "Windfall" is not the greatest show to hit the summer circuit, but not the worst either.

    Izzard and Driver are so good that you may be able to overlook a lot - like a plot to believe in.

    The Glades isn't bad, it just feels older than a swamp gator--and as hungry as one for some fresh meat.

    Oddly - and maybe miraculously - Tarzan doesn't go bad. In fact, it's pretty good, and it beats the hell out most of the junk being paraded in front of us this season ("Karen Sisco" excepted, of course!)

    The action is fast and sometimes even compelling, if not entirely believable - or even a little believable.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 63 Linda Stasi
    Don't get me wrong, there are some good laughs here, but there's also the threat that 30 Rock could easily turn into that thing the writers relentlessly make fun of--TV shows and stars that are too smug, too smart and too out-of-touch for their own good.

    This isn't ground-breaking TV, but if you're looking for a few good laughs and a lot of action without the commitment of marriage, Common Law the way to go.

    If yet one more cop show about the brash young rookie and the older, tired guy thisclose to retirement is enough to make you go completely insane and start watching, say, “Smash” or something equally upsetting, then for sure you want to stay away from Golden Boy. However, if you love cop shows that aren’t really procedurals so much as stories about the internal politicking of the NYPD, than maybe Golden Boy is just what you’re looking for.

    It is trashy fun as Spartacus, who is not really that interested in overthrowing oppressive Roman rule right now as he is in getting his sexed-up wife back, fights his way up gladiator rankings and out.

    Caged isn't a knockout, but you won't feel sucker punched because, unlike other reality shows, the cast hasn't taken a dive and faked the action for the sake of created "drama."

    Yes, there's enough here to keep you tuning in. Just don't reach for the stars. They're out to lunch.

    Some of this show is funny, but you may want to put paper down on your couch to keep you from catching an STD.

    It ain’t Hitchcock, but it ain’t bad. Too bad it ain’t new.

    And that's the problem. Is it horror or just horrible? Is it scary or just bloody?
    • 56 Metascore

    The show is a string of one-liners occasionally punctuated by women in underwear (one even strips on the stand in court). The lines, if taken by themselves, are pretty funny. But, in the context of what this show is attempting to do, it's not as funny as it could be.

    The scenes are always gritty and often very violent, which makes great TV. However, the dialogue? Whew. I mean, seriously? "She is waiting for you with breath bated!"

    There are things to love about it - two of them to be precise: Kevin Dillon and Jeremy Piven.

    Somebody should kiss a frog or something to break the evil spell and let this show be as much fun as it should be.

    If you will miss Spartacus when it ends--and you like your history with a big dose of campy fun--this one’s for you, Shield Maiden.

    Taken from a British series (although there is enough cribbing off American shows to make it seem all too familiar), this less-than-compelling knock-off follows Hood, who like House makes house calls--or in this case, crime calls.
    • 61 Metascore

    The series--a replacement of sorts for "Life On Mars" as the strange, spiritually-infused cop show--definitely has its moments, and they aren't as few and far between as I'd imagined.
