    After watching the first four episodes of the sixth season back-to-back--an endurance test I don’t recommend--it’s apparent Rescue Me is recycling plots.

    Reality TV has gotten rich off ethnic stereotypes--"Jersey Shore," anyone?--and now comes the generically titled Family Restaurant, about the Quon family, who run a thriving Chinese restaurant.

    There are elements of the "Friday the 13th: The Series" and any J-horror film here, but the frights are few.

    Sister Wives practically twists and breaks its back assuring viewers how gosh-darn normal everything is. Still, there are some cracks in the crackpots.

    The Night Shift gets the X-ray right for a series. Now it just needs to find a way to pump some new blood.

    The outlook for his head and neck here is much better; Legends, though, is on wobbly legs.

    Although the show is reminiscent of the kid-friendly TGIF lineup, some of the jokes are for the PG-13 crowd.

    Tonight's mystery ultimately doesn't hang together, but it does establish the show's light mythos in an easy-to-digest way.

    NBC's The Cape aspires to be "The Dark Knight" but unfurls more like the campy 1960s "Batman" TV series.

    Hell's greatest sin? It's often laugh-out-loud funny.

    NBC's newest drama Awake adds a drop of fantasy to its crime procedural formula and then practically buries it in musings about the mysteries of the subconscious.

    It's wonderful HBO is willing to subsidize so many artists, but Treme feels more like a tax write-off than an actual series.

    There's not much new to see in this neighborhood, but the producers have done a superb job of scoring the series with fresh music.

    NBC, together with Academy Award-winning producer Brian Grazer ("A Beautiful Mind"), tries to duplicate the success of AMC's "Mad Men" but cribs the wrong details with a woefully untalented cast, mixed feminist messages and a melodrama that is at times laugh-out-loud funny.

    Despite their [Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak's] experience, the show plays like a blind date gone bad.

    Griffiths does her best to hold the show together as a scattered woman coming into her own.

    Chase reminds me of "Trauma," NBC's attempt at a Monday drama last year, although the shows couldn't be more dissimilar (the latter was about first responders). They both seem to be placeholders in the prime-time schedule until the network can scrounge up something better.

    ABC deserves credit for its diverse casting, but Selfie looks to have the longevity of the average Snapchat pic.

    [The] clunky scenes work thanks to the exceptional cast. These actors can sell anything. Almost.

    Manhattan Love Story suggests some thoughts are better left unsaid.

    This is dumb, not-so-much fun shoot'em-ups.

    For a fleeting moment, the show hints it might venture into some saucy territory. Then it gets all “Family Ties” saccharine and goes in for the squishy hug.

    For The Odd Couple to work, you have to believe there are moments when these roommates want to throttle each other. This version presents a mild bromance. Nice for them, not so much for us.

    The climax is predictable, but the epilogue is not anything you’d find on a CBS procedural and suggests how good this show and Wilson could be.

    This little dramedy, an adaptation of a Spanish series, has that USA “Monk” comedy-lite vibe going for it.

    The editing is kind to most of the contestants, who come off as earnest, intelligent folks looking to engage their inner heroes.... Alas, The Quest’s elimination challenge is unimaginative and the vote deliberations almost as petty as anything on “Big Brother.”

    Linney, who also serves as executive producer, is luminous as always. But the first three episodes fall into a predictable pattern of Cathy confronting someone and dropping cryptic comments about her diagnosis.

    Wedding Band is frequently vulgar, and few punch lines can be quoted here, but it has such affection for all its characters that you might be troubled that you can't return the love.

    Judging from the first two episodes of the new season, Rescue Me is taking a gentler, if dopier tone. [13 June 2007, p.39]

    Fox's "Raising Hope" manages to be both more outrageous and realistic than this flimsy, forgettable time-waster.
