    TNT’s latest crime drama reeks of stale TV crime procedurals from the ’70s and ’80s.

    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.

    Netflix’s new sitcom Love is everything you expect from Judd Apatow --raunchy, rude, crass, bloated with drug jokes and sex gags and maybe more 
f-bombs than any other series­ ever.... Across 10 episodes, Love takes its time bringing its two leads together, which is just fine.

    As the hour proceeds, the tether to sanity--or at least common sense--frays.

    Visually, Los Angeles works. One forgets how dark and claustrophobic the New York shows can be. The sets seem more open, and the decor reflects an electric mix of modern styles. But the crimes--ripped from the headlines, naturally--might as well be culled from the funny pages.

    Alas, most of the other characters are so weakly sketched, they don't make a ripple.

    Netflix’s sequel series Fuller House is a triumph of canny calculation over creativity. The extended 40-minute premiere is the best fan-service of any reboot ever.

    [Host John Cena is] smart and he’s funny when he goes off-script. He gives American Grit its shot at glory.

    There's an undercurrent of desperation in this spinoff--the belief that a woman is only as good as her face and figure, and that there's always some pretty thing on her way up to take her place. These women know they are disposable. That's the ugly truth lining the sun-kissed streets of Beverly Hills.

    You've been three rounds with this story before. Lights Out sets you up for a sucker punch.

    Limitless may give you an immediate high, but side effects may include listlessness, dangerous plot holes and a sinking feeling you’ve wasted an hour of your life.

    Why Not? With Shania Twain rings of a last-ditch effort to avoid counseling.

    Becoming Chaz never really gets under its subject's skin.

    Reba's smile can warm almost anything. But it's not worth sitting through this recycled sitcom for it.

    The Czech Republic location shoots convincingly suggest medieval France, but the episodes run an unwieldy 75 minutes long. Capaldi is terrific and commands the screen as if he’s on an HBO series while everyone else is in a cartoon.

    V is stuck in the past of a 25-year-old show. It needs to shed that skin.

    When it comes to Sun Records, the hook is there, but it can’t sustain the beat.

    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.

    Scream Queens is just too dumb to be fun.

    Shots Fired’s biggest sin is its lack of urgency. For a story this topical, Shots seems constructed like a LEGO model--one scene is pressed onto another.

    The Last Ship is a naval recruitment ad for the apocalypse, and these waters look shallow. Careful before sticking your toe in.

    It's also clear that, with the show now starting its fifth season, the contestants have actually bothered to watch previous installments and have strategized. It may keep them in the game longer, but it makes for more predictable TV.

    You'd have more fun watching somebody put up drywall.

    There probably hasn’t been so much talk about sex crammed into one hour since MTV’s “Loveline.” Much of it cannot be repeated here. Instead of being titillating, it’s tedious, the equivalent of three cold showers.

    The challenges are right out of “Survivor” and MTV’s much missed “Road Rules”--so much so that loyal fans will be able to scream out the season, if not the episode. Some of the game rules seem arbitrary, even for the genre.

    Ultimately, Fleming will leave you neither shaken nor stirred.

    Like "Lost," the show is burdened with flashbacks and divides its time between the present and the prison 50 years earlier.

    The alleged comedy follows this blended family's attempts to get along. The laugh track works harder than anyone here.

    There's still heat to Rescue Me - it just needs something to stoke the drama. [19 June 2005, p.A03]
