    The series isn't bad. It just isn't all that good.

    Lie to Me isn't terrible. From what I've seen so far, it's like "The DaVinci Code," in that it's something full of riveting information unfortunately wrapped around a dopey story and characters who should be in love with each other but aren't.

    The ensemble company, including the always-wonderful Laura San Giacomo, who plays her friend, never misses a beat. Too bad this series--which tries too hard--misses a stanza or two.

    The premise is fun, but if this is CBS' attempt at "Lost," then they are, if not totally lost, certainly in need of a map. And a new writer. Some of the dialogue is laugh-out-loud bad.

    Gunn is fine in limited doses. I like him better as a design guru than the closet king.

    With funnier material, they [the actors] could really make this thing work.

    Detroit 1-8-7 is not bad and not great, though, ironically, the characters seem to have come off a Detroit assembly line.

    666 Park Avenue [is] ABC's not-scary rip-off of "Rosemary's Baby."

    Good watching for fans of those campy, old Sci Fi original monster movies.

    There are twists and turns a-plenty, and Bacon and Purefoy are so good they make up for the silliness - if not the gratuitous gore.

    The scariest thing about American Horror Story, the highly anticipated FX series from the guys who brought you "Glee" and "Nip/Tuck," is that almost everything in the entire show has been cribbed (or crypt-ed, in this case) from every other American horror story.

    The acting's good and the actors are good-looking. But, really, wouldn't you expect something more cohesive from the folks who brought you "American Beauty?"

    While mildly amusing, what the show lacks is charm. And humor. And tension. [2 Jun 2005]

    The result, ironically enough, is a show that makes fun of all things PC and ends up being too PC to blister.

    On the triumphant side, Sarah strips her psyche raw and lets us inside the mind, the heart and the life of the broke and broken princess who must find herself or die, she says right off. [...] OK, Fergie has legitimate issues. And now, she's dead broke, as well. So, she brings in "the world's greatest experts" to save her. And who are these experts? Why, Oprah's all-stars, Dr. Phil and Suze Orman, of course! Let the failure portion of the show begin!

    It plays like a desperate attempt to recreate all the wonder of “Downton Abbey”--but with no characters to care about.

    A "reality" show so huggy-weepy that it will put even the most enraged domestic abuser to sleep.

    The characters are likeable enough so that you might even grow to care about them--and the show--in this arid writers' strike environment.

    In its favor, Parks doesn't have a laugh track. On the minus side, it doesn't get many laughs.

    Not the greatest dinosaur, er Discovery, but it's a respite from the endless 9/11 coverage that will dominate next week's fare.

    The scripts are nearly line-for-line copies of the Brit version. But the scenes are over the top, the kids are too good-looking and seem to have spent too much time at acting camp.

    Keep the money and run like hell if you're tired of reality shows that border on surreality.

    More focus on their day jobs and less “Moonlighting” by the producers is needed here.

    It's all a bit ridiculous and the writing is scary, although the stars are first rate and the locales are pretty good too.

    What's mostly wrong with this new series is that it doesn't know who in God's name it is.
    • 55 Metascore

    The series has great potential, and frankly I can't tell you why it doesn't ever quite reach it - other than it somehow lacks, er, magic.

    Problem is in 1600 Penn they are shooting for "Animal House" in the White House but too often end up with nobody home.

    These pros deserve better than bad jokes and swinging doors.

    Season 2 is more of less than we've come to expect.

    Funny, but not for the faint of heart.
