    At 60 minutes, these episodes will test even loyal fans, although some viewers will discover a new respect for Melissa, who displays patience not unlike Job in her trials. Still, Joan is her mother. Everyone else can skip the guilt trip.

    While the miniseries is more faithful to the 1941 James M. Cain novel of the same name, Todd Haynes' adaptation (he co-wrote the teleplay, directed and acted as one of the executive producers on this five-part bloated whale) is so draining, it might make you anemic.

    Alpha House feels like social studies homework. On a Saturday night.

    TV Land tries to build on its surprise sitcom hit "Hot in Cleveland" with Retired at 35, a spectacularly unfunny show that reflects a parent's worst nightmare: A grown child moves home for no good reason and shows no sign of budging.

    The background music works muscularly to pump up interest, but the story's pacing is ponderous.

    Where Ties unravels is in its other half, as it desperately tries to be a gritty police procedural.

    Gore-hounds will find a couple of visual shots fascinating, but there’s little here for anyone to justify the hour investment.

    The sitcom starts with one of the best introductions to a group of losers. By the end of the third episode Fox provided for review, I was yawning and daydreaming about buying nail fungus remover.

    Finally you get the sense that Meryl Streep's daughter is coming into her own as an actress and even a lead. But Emily needs a script doc, stat.

    Party Down, about a group of aspiring Hollywood types working as caterers, returns for a second season of stale jokes.

    Every character has a voice-over, info dumps for back story that are either irksome or unnecessary.

    It’s a series that zips along in one direction, suddenly accelerates in another and veers out of control into a swamp of sugar and schmaltz.

    ABC’s midseason replacement How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) is dumb and crass. That would be fine if it were at all funny.

    Traffic Light is the kind of sitcom that revs from zero to zero with laughter.

    Maybe some day someone will give some stay-at-home dads some respect. This show isn’t it.

    What’s odd here is that even with the influx of injured, Chicago Med never builds any dramatic heat.

    Seduced is many things: a funny road trip, a canny look at Cannes and the industry, a conversation with directors about their epic battles to get their masterpieces on screen. If it had stuck to one idea, it might have made a terrific documentary.

    The maestro behind “Sons of Anarchy” returns to FX with this over-the-top gorefest that tries to outdo both “Game of Thrones” and “The Walking Dead” for spectacle.

    Rosewood tries so badly to create the next prime-time super couple, but the duo at the heart of this awkward crime procedural are less together than they are apart.

    Creator Byron Balasco’s sense of pacing seems off, as if he’s trying to figure out the direction as he goes along. The dialogue, too, runs in laps. If I had to listen to Grillo bark, “Relax!” one more time, I might punch my own TV. But with actors such as Lauria and Jonas driving the drama, Kingdom may yet rise.

    Unfortunately, the drama between Federline and Jackson seems to be about the only reason to tune in, making this serving of “Fit Club” especially tasteless.

    If you like your comedy slathered in crude, this sitcom is catnip. Everyone else will wonder if CBS stopped making shows with recognizable human beings when “Everybody Loves Raymond” went off the air.

    [A] dreary show that has all the edge of a doughnut hole and comes slathered with an astonishing amount of sexual innuendo for a network sitcom.

    If there were a Match.com for sitcoms, this show would be blocked, banned and forgotten.

    The players seem to spend much of their time entering and exiting the same drab offices while shoveling exposition at one other.

    Unfortunately, the pilot doesn't flesh out the premise, making the episode little more than an average "Outer Limits." With all the special-effects possibilities of a virtual realm, "Santiago City" looks like the set of "Combat" with a high-tech fence around it. [8 Oct 1999, p.S34]

    Betas brims with raunch, perhaps in the belief that it is key to hooking younger viewers.­

    He seemed nervous in a rapid-fire monologue that took shots at Dick Cheney, Alan Greenspan and Tiger Woods.

    The show moves briskly but not well. Kazinsky is good and tries to continue the cranky character Hall so memorably creates, but the writing wants to turn him into Captain America.

    Perception is a head trip not worth the journey.
