    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.

    Seal Team Six won't sway undecided voters; it also won't entertain many, either.

    Your enjoyment of the show will hinge on how much you can stomach the antics of the First Screw-Up.

    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.

    A slow-pokey drama punctuated by shocking violence and sex.

    Williamson has crafted a pilot tense and frightening. But in the subsequent three episodes, The Following deteriorates into a serialized version of CBS' "Criminal Minds." ... After four episodes, this viewer was weary of seeing women terrorized.

    The overarching premise of the 15-episode season cracks and crumbles under the slightest scrutiny.
    • 78 Metascore

    Russell and Rhys seem adept at the disguises and stunts. But their characters are practically flipped from pilot to second episode, and some of the black humor here is awkwardly executed.

    Series creator, director and writer David S. Goyer (scribe for Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy) twists the already amazing life of the 15th century artist and inventor into something fantastical--but not altogether convincing.

    The show’s pacing, particularly in the first hour, could trigger a nap.

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

    The acting ranges from adequate to awful. Milano and George have zero chemistry, and George’s sexy stud act, which has bankrolled his career, reaches its expiration point here.... It’s not nearly enough sizzle for summer.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 58 Mark A. Perigard
    TNT’s latest crime drama reeks of stale TV crime procedurals from the ’70s and ’80s.

    Griffiths does her best to hold the show together as a scattered woman coming into her own.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 58 Mark A. Perigard
    The show appears to be an uneven hour that hesitates at going either for the full-throttle laugh or an authentic dramatic beat.

    TLC’s editing, as expected, goes out of its way to make the family appear like idiots.... But the Thompsons don’t care what other people think. They’ve got each other. In that, they’re light-years better adjusted than just about any family on any other reality show.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 58 Mark A. Perigard
    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.

    Homeland now stumbles through familiar territory, and the view the second time around isn’t half as compelling.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 58 Mark A. Perigard
    With so many powers, the Tomorrow People seem near invincible, and the measures Ultra uses to thwart them seem flimsy. The idea that a prohibition against killing could be genetically encoded seems both convenient and implausible — and also lessens the stakes.

    As our wanderer through the rabbit hole, Lowe lacks conviction, but Socha is a true charmer as the Knave, and fans will be making wishes for Alice to dump the dreary genie for the rogue. With the mothership’s leads on a similar quest for a missing boy, Wonderland seems like an exercise in magical redundancy.

    Reign is a big stick of stupid wrapped in gauzy costumes and tramping around a sumptuous estate.
    • 55 Metascore

    This supernatural thriller is much more attuned to the times than PBS’ costume period piece “Downton Abbey,” which filters such hot topics as women’s rights and homosexuality through a modern lens.... Mina’s aspirations to become a surgeon are publicly disparaged by the person closest to her next week in a moment that hits harder than the onscreen horror. Dracula’s visit to an under­ground gay club next week is well, bizarre, but it captures how homosexuals dwelled in the shadows, terrified of exposure. Those moments are far more biting than any of the so-called scares.

    The Thundermans doesn’t do much heavy lifting, but it waves its cape proudly.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 58 Mark A. Perigard
    Urban and Ealy are competent in their roles, damaged spirits destined to become brothers of a sort, not if, but only when.... While some viewers will be oblivious to the show’s racial politics, others will struggle to find a point. Somebody at Fox short-circuited.

    All this twee is verging on twaddle.

    A sometimes intriguing sci-fi show from executive producer Ronald D. Moore about a viral outbreak at a desolate Arctic base. The bug isn’t airborne, but stupidity apparently is.

    There might be a good drama in Rake, but right now the jury is still out.

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

    It’s not a good fit [with Lifetime], and there’s not a lot of drama in this biopic about the first U.S. Olympic gymnast and African-­American to triumph in both the all-around and the team competition.
    • 50 Metascore

    The emo-dialogue only sounds good if you’re just watching your first TV show..... The show’s decade-forward future is intriguing but inconsistent.
