    Biderman’s work here is inexplicably lazy: South Boston natives are haunted or broken; L.A. natives are narcissistic airheads. Voight doesn’t so much chew the scenery as gnaw it.

    Russian Dolls reinforces every negative stereotype about Russian women.

    The drama is swamped by the saccharine cliches.

    The musical numbers are competently staged, even if they often play like filler to underscore character montages. The plots mosey between drama and comedy and never hit their marks.

    Don't worry about forming a lasting relationship with Best Friends Forever. It has all the signs of a quick flame-out on the NBC schedule.

    It's a bad omen when the show repeats one of its catastrophes next week, just amped to a grislier level. I was bored.

    D'Elia sparks well off Cummings, but this show demonstrates her true talents lie offscreen.

    O'Connell glides through the show on his smile. Belushi isn't as bad as one might expect, which, granted, isn't much of a compliment. He reins in the comic buffoonery, and if the scripts get better, he might prove to be up to a dramatic role.

    Now this show plays like a cross between any generic CBS crime procedural and the network's "Bones." Human Target needs a course correction.

    Whoever reads those stilted lines, it won't make a difference. These angels never take flight.

    It's more closely a cross between "My Cousin Vinny" and "The Good Wife," with Janet Montgomery ("Entourage") a dull stand-in for Oscar winner Marisa Tomei.

    Sharknado 2 doesn’t need any jokes about jumping the shark. It knows you’re going to make one and it beats you to it, literally.

    The first two cases, involving a gang of murderous thieves and the death of a personal trainer, are ho-hum. McDonnell, a fine actress, finally has a chance to inject some dry wit into her stoic investigator.

    Many of the jokes are non sequitur riffs that turn into endurance tests. The cast seems to be aware of it.

    I didn't laugh much. I did, however, check my watch, still secure on my wrist, to determine when the show would be ending.

    Despite the often eerie parallels to the Showtime thriller, ABC’s eight-part miniseries The Assets is based on fact. That does nothing to make it compelling.

    Johnny is easily a Leary/Tommy Gavin stand-in, 
Theresa is Janet (Andrea Roth) with a badge, and Bigley could be Mike Silletti’s (Mike Lombardi) brother. Don’t bother with the alarm. When it comes to 
Sirens, you know this drill.

    Bob's Burgers arrives cold, with a touch of E. coli. Beware.

    NBC's Animal Practice is a lot like ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," except it's furrier and it's a lot less funny.

    Bates, who remains a recurring guest on the network's "The Office," brings heart and intelligence to a role that is not nearly so well-defined on the page, proof that casting can elevate any vehicle.

    If you are curious about the show, tune into the last 10 minutes of the hour, and you’ll learn everything you need to know. Right now, Bitten is a nibble of a show.

    Moves is mostly a leaping-high bromance, with the guys checking each other's egos.

    Those who worry about the teenager's well-being will find little comfort in this series.

    Fashion Star is a skimpy little show. You might buy something in the evening, but beware those morning-after regrets.

    Her tips could be found in the nearest public library. And stretched to an hour, Jobmother seems downright inflationary.

    Why is she The Protector? Why didn't Lifetime call this series "The Protectors" and give Campbell-Martin and her character equal footing? As this show proves, some mysteries aren't worth solving.

    The show’s humor is more often graceless and crass.

    Once the show tones down the voice-overs, Balfe is quite good in the part of a time-tossed lassie.... Heughan swaggers in his kilt about as well as “The Simpsons’” Groundskeeper Willie (that is not a dis), but he and Balfe generate about as much heat as two piles of wet peat.

    The makers of the "River" deserve credit for spilling so much of their "X-Files" myth-ology from the start, but there's not enough reason to book passage on this voyage of the bland.

    By the end of the third episode, I was tired of all the sodomy jokes. Wood is an appealing comedic lead, but he's working off scraps. Be charitable and chalk up Gann's appeal to cultural differences.
