    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.

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

    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.
    • 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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 58 Mark A. Perigard
    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.

    If GCB wants to soar to heavenly numbers, it better let the devil out to play.

    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.

    Those who love the books will probably geek out on the series. The rest of us may have a harder time sitting through Game of Thrones.

    This remake of a tart British sitcom of the same name starts with the moment that has killed many a show: its two main characters in bed, post-booty call. It's anything but romantic.

    The show’s formula--particularly the ease in which the villains track down Chuck--is getting creaky.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 58 Mark A. Perigard
    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.
    • 57 Metascore

    The first three episodes are essentially capers involving spy chasing spy as angst-ridden Russians try to defect, the CIA tries to get to them and the SVR sics the O’Connors on everyone.

    Right now, Up All Night is the TV equivalent of a glass of warm milk.

    Rookie Blue is set in a nondescript big city, which also serves to make the series generic. The cast, however, is spunky and promising.

    Burns’ direction is choppy, except for his closing­ scenes, which are un­expectedly strong. He does know how to end an episode. If only he knew how to begin one.
