    Has little to offer but formula storytelling and conventional crime-drama techniques.

    Halfway through tonight's clunky and cartoonish debut, it dawns on you that we're stuck in the middle of Operation Letdown.

    Obvious similarities to the Jason Bourne films and other espionage stories are only part of the derivative drama's problems. The lurching plot turns are preposterous. The supporting characters are thinly drawn. The structure is terribly disjointed. And the dialogue ranges from ham-fisted to stilted.

    Six Feet Under is as artificial as the AstroTurf funeral directors place around a grave site. [3 June 2001, p.91]

    More insipid than insightful, Popular fails to fill the bill. Emotionally overwrought and intellectually underdeveloped, the fledgling series is everything you've come to expect from a Hollywood examination of high school - and less. [29 Sept 1999, p.4E]

    What's missing from Blunt Talk is any degree of wit, any genuine character development, any sense of comic structure that delights, rather than depresses, the viewer. What should be winning leaves you wincing.

    The writing on "Commander in Chief" often is so distressingly thin and pale, this West Wing drama will suffer in comparison to the robust early years of, well, NBC's "The West Wing."

    This incredibly trite and preposterous series are serious about all the hackneyed twaddle lumbering and stumbling into view Monday night. Just when you think it can't get more laughably bad, it does.

    Coercion might be the only way to get an audience for this incredibly labored legal drama.

    This funny fellow is trapped in a series that isn't even remotely funny. [27 Mar 2002, p.E1]

    This is a leading contender for the title of worst new show of the season.

    It's another faulty futuristic fantasy drama patched together with used parts and overused designs.

    The odious Tucker is a crude and blatant rip-off of Fox's brilliant January starter, "Malcolm in the Middle." The producers have gone to the absurd extreme of citing "My So-Called Life" as their inspiration, a pathetic ploy to avoid the obvious charge of "Malcolm" marauding. [2 Oct 2000, p.9D]
