    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?"

    A new syndicated series that is like the illegitimate love child of "Lord of the Rings" and a weekend role player.

    The best part of this show is the acting, which is generally excellent - particularly that of Hugh Dillon as Ed Lane, the conscience-riddled sharpshooter. Too bad the writing isn't as on-target as Lane's high-powered automatic.

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

    The best part of the show is watching Cho's standup act. Other than that, I really don't care to watch someone pick out clothes and talk to her "Glam Squad."

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

    It's all dopey--and as believable as a telepathic paramedic, a supermodel detective and a partner who doesn't notice he's riding around with a psychic.

    This brings up the writing, which is strictly discount--and so are the plots, which don't tell us enough in the victims he saves.

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

    All in all, even with an accomplished actor like Hutton, there's nothing special to set Leverage apart from other cookie-cutter dramas of this ilk.

    On the up side, some of the one-liners are quite funny. On the downside, a lot of the show just doesn't work no matter how hard Mohr works it.

    While some of the "finds" the security officers uncover at border crossings tonight at the Los Angeles International Airport, at the Blaine, Wash./Canada border, at the US/Mexican border and while patrolling the desert outside Tucson, are interesting, most are not.

    The band is gold as far as kiddie parties go, but more like copper on the after-dark circuit. The same can be said for the concept vs. the execution here.

    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.

    In its favor, Parks doesn't have a laugh track. On the minus side, it doesn't get many laughs.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Linda Stasi
    The few plot lines that don't revolve around her sex appeal--such as her older daughter becoming everything-aphobic, Eddie becoming crazy, and Dr. O'Hara (Eve Best) moving at warp speed on her self-destruction path--are all so interesting, it makes you long for more.

    A "reality" show so huggy-weepy that it will put even the most enraged domestic abuser to sleep.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Linda Stasi
    The series, which has so much promise (and promised so much), is long on smug self-satisfaction and short on big laughs.

    This could have been a really good show. Instead, "Fly Girls" ends up just an OK flight to fantasy land.

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

    While the show is interesting and well-acted, ultimately, it lacks shock and awe.

    This mommy-answer to "The View" is a somewhat dumbed-down version of that show except here the panel--Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini, Sara Gilbert and Marissa Jaret Winokur--discuss traditional "women's topics," i.e. kids, cooking and such.

    If "Survivor" and "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" had a love child, it would be called "Sarah Palin's Alaska.

    Funny, but not for the faint of heart.

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