    The ninth and final season premiere of NBC's The Office definitively answers a few key questions about the cogs at the middling paper company Dunder Mifflin--if anyone out there is still interested in the once smart, now just silly sitcom.

    Maybe Abrams just ran out of energy drinks that week. This is a poor caper show that doesn't even deliver half the surprises of TNT's "Leverage."

    The pilot is a rough go, winging from one angel to the next, necessary perhaps to set the premise but a slog. Nobody from the cast makes much of an impression.

    Anyone really thirsty for laughs will probably come up dry.

    Because this is a Bravo reality show, every hour has to end with a manufactured epiphany.

    Like the look of the ladies, the show is gorgeous, but it needs to reveal some substance.

    Spoils takes its murder mystery too seriously. While this isn’t as dour an affair as Ferrell and Wiig’s recent Lifetime debacle, “A Deadly Adoption,” a little bit more nuttiness would make this mini more a treat and not so much an endurance challenge.

    Undercover presents a wonderful tribute to the working man and woman. Middle managers are the villains here, sitting at desks and docking workers for clocking in late at lunch. The hour ends with the predictable reveal.

    MTV's documentary series "True Life" has walked this territory before with far more compelling subjects.

    Many of the scenes with the teens seem staged, especially tonight's climax. Still, the Bruces aren't anything like the delusional couples who populate Bravo's "Housewives" shows. This is a functioning family trying to survive a dysfunctional time.

    For a show that starts out with so much energy, Breakout Kings quickly settles into a procedural rut.

    Satisfaction has the most provocative premise--until about halfway through when it doesn’t just go off the rails, it careens into the ocean, swims for England, sits for afternoon tea and then flings itself into the moon.

    Grimm has a low-rent Saturday Syfy vibe to it.

    All this twee is verging on twaddle.

    Thursday’s conclusion drags a bit if only because the miniseries requires Rosemary to be so deeply stupid for so long, and it’s not entertaining watching Saldana being practically sucked dry by her infernal fetus.

    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.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 58 Mark A. Perigard
    Comparisons to the BBC show are unavoidable since the first two episodes are practically a scene-by-scene reshoot of the original's opening. The stars even look like doppelgangers of the English cast.

    Sarah Palin's Alaska turns out to be a tepid travelogue of the former governor's home state's tourist attractions interspersed with homespun homilies and family downtime.

    Of the handful of episodes I watched, the pilot tonight, written by Adlon and directed by C.K., is the strongest. Subsequent episodes meander.

    Homeland now stumbles through familiar territory, and the view the second time around isn’t half as compelling.
    • 62 Metascore

    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.

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

    [The] premiere serves as a rocky reboot to the once robust hit.

    With its relentless narration, Gold Rush: Alaska more often plays like anaudible.com download with stunning visuals of Sarah Palin's home state as a backdrop.

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

    The uneven 10-episode series shifts from pedestrian cloak-and-dagger to camp.

    There’s much intrigue and backbiting going on in the small domestic household of the Dowager Countess, but that, too, ultimately goes nowhere. Fellowes hints at drama and pulls his punches.
    • 79 Metascore

    The show appears to be an uneven hour that hesitates at going either for the full-throttle laugh or an authentic dramatic beat.

    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.

    The players have all done fine work in other venues, but the story isn't here. The network that "knows drama" needs to step it up a beat.
