    Better Lives lacks the ensemble chemistry and clever writing of “HIMYM,” and seems content to rely on a non-stop barrage of sophomoric sex jokes and double entendres.

    It’s not funny.

    The sitcom is cookie-cutter and one-dimensional--with thinly written characters and, most notably, a hyperactive laugh track that’s really grating.

    There's nothing fresh or original, and certainly no reason to watch this show, unless you're a fan of this ilk of staged "reality" (see "The Kardashians").

    It's all a muddled mess of computer-generated battlefield scenes, gratuitous bare-breast-and-buttock shots (men and women--there's no favoritism here) and "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon"-type photography.

    [Princesses: Long Island] just might be the dumbest 45 minutes of TV.

    There’s nothing much going on here besides flirting cowboys and lots of beer-drinking, the producers pile on the supposed “drama” with the requisite reality show staples: forced conflict augmented by quick-cut editing and doomsday music and staged scenes.... Hoof it away from here ASAP.

    I just can’t shake the feeling that I’ve seen it all before--and that The 100 is another piece of The CW’s generic series puzzle.
