    This baby doesn't look like it'll make it full term.

    "Standoff" fails to connect on almost every level.

    Besides making every aspect of dating and mating look depressing, it's hard to come up with a reason to spend time with any of these characters.

    The only thing dull, disappointing Journeyman can do is lower our pulse rates to ready us for beddy-bye.

    More proof that even Jerry Bruckheimer can spit out barely watchable productions.

    Beautiful people, perky and unrealistic dialogue and male characters who have all dropped their huevos in jars of vinegar.

    There comes a point at which sisterhood becomes powerfully irritating, and "Related" finds it within the first 40 minutes of its existence.

    The imaginations behind "Painkiller Jane" are so thin, and each hour's progression so randomly executed, that one imagines the scripts were written using the Mad Libs method.

    An absolute mess.

    This is comedian Louis C.K.'s attempt to lampoon the classic half-hour sitcom, if by lampoon you mean drown it in toxic failure.

    The problem is a lack of depth; "Joan of Arcadia," the series this is replacing, had heartfelt moments and significant emotion behind its storylines. Whereas this has Love telling ghosties to head for the light.

    "Hidden Palms"... starts out feeling like it could be a guilty pleasure but ends up being something you want to hold face down in a full kiddie pool.
