    Given that, let me also say that virtual sets don't make up for virtual plots. Not that Sanctuary doesn't have its moments, and those moments might prove to be fast and furious after tonight's two-hour premiere when the show goes to a more manageable one-hour format.

    When the show returns Sunday night, it's all business and not much pleasure for the Henrickson clan--and, in some ways, for us viewers, as well.

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

    Combine[s] the tension of the boardroom in "The Apprentice," the machinations of "Survivor," the tears of a Dr. Phil cry-athon, and the tonnage of a Weight Watchers meeting. [20 Oct 2004]

    "E-Ring" is sometimes kind of silly, sometimes tightly drawn, and sometimes it's fun.

    A show with a promising premise that could be a winner.

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

    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.

    Unlike "Baywatch," it's not as bad as it sounds -- or as good -- depending on your opinion of beach dramas built largely around boobs and biceps.

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

    Normally, this should be as much fun as pulling out your own fingernails, but the cast for the most part makes it tolerable and fun.

    The show is not as good as Woods makes it, but not as bad as some of the new shows.

    All three actresses deserve better dialogue than they are given. But the clothes? They speak volumes.

    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.

    All in all, brainless fun.

    The action is fast and sometimes even compelling, if not entirely believable - or even a little believable.

    There's never a light moment to let you reflect on the violence that you've just witnessed, which brings "Brotherhood" back to the level of every not-great gangster flick that's ever been.

    As soapy, sappy, Christmas adaptations go, this one's pretty good - until it totally falls apart at the end with the most preposterous finale imaginable.

    Since I myself am a sucker for a true-crime cheesefest, I was loving this movie until I was rudely reminded by my friend Denise that, "This is neither good sleaze nor serious true crime! It's half a satire, and half a true crime movie!"

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

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

    Pushing Daisies is fanciful and fun, but sometimes pushes the daisies too hard.

    Think "The Apprentice" meets "Extreme Home Makeover" and you've got the heartwarming Oprah's Big Give. All shows together equal more Sunday-night tears than a feelgood Lifetime movie marathon.

    For reasons too obvious to bother with, NBC managed to take a really terrific and fun premiere and somehow let it morph over the following episodes into just another take-it-or-leave-it show.

    What I like about this series is that it is anti-slick and anti-pretty.

    It's a good kid show, but frankly, as an adult I'll lose interest faster than it took these kids to make gourmet biscuits and grits.

    I'm happy to report that this season, there's More Blood! More Torture! More Killing! and More Intrigue! than last season.

    I don't know why Tracey Ullman's State of the Union isn't funny. Maybe it's just that the whole thing comes across as too jaded, or maybe impersonating and skewering people also requires that the comic walk the fine line between funny and cruel. And honestly, cruel stops well short of knee-slapper.

    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.

    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.
