    Executive producer Sofia Vergara, better known as Gloria on ABC’s “Modern Family,” and series creator Hannah Shakespeare (“The Raven”) have a lot of ideas, but there isn’t a single surprise in the batch.

    Looking might be the most provocative series of 2014. It’s just not original or memorable.

    Sunjata is talented and charismatic.... He deserves a show that will cement his status as a leading man. This isn’t it. Tveit buckles under the script shifts, in one scene a dweeb, in the next, a canny agent.

    Bonnie & Clyde? More like Hokum and Bunk.

    There are too many instances of people conveniently running into each other. In short, common sense is missing from Justified.

    The auction segments are fascinating as buyers become locked in bidding wars and props sell for obscene figures. But the series could ultimately hurt Maddelena's business. The means by which he authenticates certain items, at least as presented here, is not convincing.

    You'll be left tapping your feet all right--wondering impatiently if there's any sparkle under this drudgery.

    This is “The Da Vinci Code” crossed with “Indiana Jones” with dialogue courtesy of a Magic 8 Ball.

    Barbershop's tarty makeover - surprising, because three of the films' producers, including star Ice Cube, are behind this - does more than just sex it up for premium cable. The good will has been snipped from the franchise. [11 Aug 2005, p.53]

    Sit through TNT’s “The Hero” and 72 Hours and REELZ’s “Race to the Scene” back-to-back, you realize how much the genre lives on the tired bone marrow of “Survivor” and "The Amazing Race."

    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.
    • 63 Metascore

    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.

    [Blunt Talk] is dull, depressing, charm-free, puerile and pointless. You’ll have more fun slapping yourself in the head with a spoon for a half-hour.

    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.
