    [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.

    Documentary Now! is so good, you’ll be forced to reassess Meyers, whose comedy writing is so crisp and correct, he should give up his late-night NBC show because nothing he does there will ever be as good or as funny.

    Fear resorts to the dumbest of jump scares and runs in circles. You’ll get impatient for a walker to come chomping by. You might be disappointed when one does. An action sequence that caps the extended premiere is choppy and amateurishly directed.

    Engrossing.... Haggis, who directed all six hours, and Simon have walked this material before.

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

    [A] sweet yet raunchy comedy.

    [Jane] Buckingham is likable and, in a genre better known for its bombastic Chris Harrisons, presents good tips and doesn’t make the show all about her.

    [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.

    The insanely intense action drama opens its final season tonight. Scenes of quiet only serve to bridge action sequences.

    If you’ve seen one shark fall from the sky, you’ve seen them all. To its credit, in its last five minutes, Oh Hell No! amps up the craziness to a level that should have dominated the entire film.

    Leary is perfectly cast as the middle-aged wastrel with a modicum of talent and an ego the size of the Trump Tower.... Much of the show can’t be quoted. Many of the jokes you can see coming at you from the Zakim Bridge. They’re still funny.

    Gaffigan plays a tubby man-child version of himself, and in the classic TV marriage cliche (see “King of Queens,” “According to Jim”), he just happens to be married to an insanely hot woman (Ashley Williams, “How I Met Your Mother”) who is loving and supportive beyond rational means. But Gaffigan has ambition.

    Impastor has a stronger­ point of view [than The Jim Gaffigan Show] but fewer laughs.

    Holmes is obviously meant as a temptation for Ray, but the mismatch between her and star Liev Schreiber is not worth dwelling on. Ray Donovan remains a potent mix of pathos and dark comedy.

    Spoils takes its murder mystery too seriously. While this isn’t as dour an affair as Ferrell and Wiig’s recent Lifetime debacle, “A Deadly Adoption,” a little bit more nuttiness would make this mini more a treat and not so much an endurance challenge.

    There are a few scares here, but while the “Scream” films kept audiences jumping, Scream the TV series risks putting viewers to sleep.

    Locked up in cliches, tedium and barely believable bipeds. ... As far as extinction events go, Zoo is lame and tame.

    Mr. Robot is like a computer virus that will worm its way into your consciousness if you’re not careful.

    By now, you’ve grasped Poldark is a soap, a four-letter word by PBS’ standards.

    Even though it’s been a heady year since the first thrilling installment and the season runs but eight episodes, something feels undercooked about this production.

    The Astronauts Wives Club orbits thisclose to camp--yet never plunges into a black hole of idiocy.

    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]

    Becoming Us suffers from poorly cut segments that might give you flashbacks to the ’90s seasons of MTV’s “Real World.”

    Rabe is terrific, balancing drive and a mounting dread, and it’s a pleasure to see the actress commanding a lead role. The first three episodes build the mystery at a respectable clip.

    Aquarius’ problem is that it doesn’t want to tell a single story from the Summer of Love, it wants to tell every story from that summer, so you get heavy-­handed displays of institutional sexism and racism, drug use, the rise of black activism, the generation gap, the Vietnam War and some marriage melodrama to boot.

    Kidman works hard here, but she is sabotaged by a common script.

    Things are about to get a lot worse on Penny Dreadful, and for viewers, that is a very good thing indeed.

    This series looks like a sad refuge for actors down on their luck. [4 Jan 2001, p.40]

    After three episodes, my head is bumping against my joy ceiling--with Happyish.
