    This is "King Arthur Begins." Fiennes seems determined to play the Joker. Whether this interpretation of the sorcerer will cast a spell over viewers is uncertain.

    The X Factor is "America's Got Talent" with lockjaw, "The Voice" with a smoker's hack and "American Idol" on steroids. It is a garish, crass spectacle, and just might produce America's next superstar.

    At times, the dialogue stops and unloads for exposition dumps, and a few of the young cast mates could use some more training back in the land of the Muggles.

    This admittedly over-produced series has one of the toughest elimination rituals to watch: Each of the three finalists walks to check out a callback list to discover if they are still wanted.

    Deschanel is utterly con-vincing as this off-kilter gal, and of the supporting cast, Wayans sparks the most as Coach.

    Game of Thrones starts less like an epic and more like a session of "Medieval Sims."
    • 74 Metascore

    Awkward is adept in some quick cutaways, as in a classroom scene that echoes "Ferris Bueller." Rickards works so hard to emulate "Easy A" star Emma Stone, she just might end up in a full body cast by the end of the season. But with the tide going out on such reality drivel as "Jersey Shore," Awkward is a cagey move for MTV.

    You may laugh, but you'll hate yourself afterward.

    Hate touches a comic nerve, the war of independence between teenage girls and their moms, but invariably settles for a hug when a few more slammed doors might be funnier.

    Like a lot of reality shows ranging from the silly "Real World" to the loathsome "Jersey Shore," All-American Muslim ends up reinforcing some stereotypes while defying others.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    Punk'd seems to have a budget to rival a commercial network show, and the twist of rotating hosts--upcoming stars include "Twilight" actor Kellan Lutz and "Glee's" Heather Morris--whips up a new level of paranoia.

    Touch needs more work grounding its reality before any of these fantasies take flight.
    • 58 Metascore

    Your enjoyment of "Vengeance" ultimately hinges on how much you remember the betrayals and back-stabbings of the first season, "Spartacus: Blood and Sand."

    Even at approximately 80 minutes, director/producer Nancy Buirski's work could be tighter, but it's hard to imagine a more appropriate documentary for Valentine's Day.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    At times, the show careens from black humor to near tragedy and then back again.
    • 56 Metascore

    Judd, who serves as series co-executive producer, makes for a surprisingly convincing action hero. It's when she stops to emote in full mommy mode that the show drags.

    In its personal vignettes, Weight illuminates, but too often the segments are a numbing array of statistics from well-meaning talking heads.

    Count on Hit & Miss to find its targets.

    Elementary turns the myth into CBS' answer to "Castle," with a shade more intelligence.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    What separates this cast from just about every other real-ity show is that these people are chasing something larger than themselves, more vital to them than fame or money--that brief moment of perfection onstage, achieved after years of study and practice.

    Unlike other period dramas, notably AMC's "Mad Men" and Starz's "Magic City," Vegas doesn't cram the hour with topical references. Here, they're more subtle and jarring.

    After some demented inspiration from Jesse (Aaron Paul), Walt launches a caper so audacious, it's almost comical.
    • 74 Metascore

    Bunheads has the potential to have that cross-generational appeal. To thrive, the series must find its own tune to dance to.

    Photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders accessorizes his picture with some vintage clips, but his Face could do with fewer mouths.

    Perry proves to be adept at both the mirth and misery required by the role. Viewers, however, may be put off by a series that seems stuck like its patients in a gray zone between laughing and mourning.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    Go beyond the in-your-face, outrageous title here, and you'll find a somewhat sweet show struggling to create some real laughs.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    It's never a good sign when the main character is the least interesting player on the block. Fortunately, Empire's cast is rich enough for you to overlook that flaw.

    Once the story finds its pulse, Coma is fun, but there are a few hiccups.

    While the premise is slight, smart casting gives Ben and Kate a comedic edge.
    • 83 Metascore

    Plotting is not Fellowes' strength, but Downton's appeal is visual.
