    To use some Southie Vernacular, I would just book it ("run as fast as you can") from this wicked ("very") mediocre show which appears destined for the TV barrel ("trashcan").

    Wahlburgers can use a dash of humor to spice up an otherwise-lackluster, “seen it all before” series.

    Yet another in the assembly line of fantasy/sci-fi shows, it offers little in the way of thrills, suspense or drama.

    What saves Enlisted, just barely, is the effort put in by Stults, Lowell and Young, who all seem to be having a good time.

    [Alpha House is] not very memorable or notable, at least not in the pilot episode that’s been made available for review.

    Taken as a whole, the problem with Marseilles is that not much happens once its main premise is established.

    The writing here isn't very snappy, Steve and Emmy are one-dimensional cutouts and Russell, the former "Felicity" star, looks uncomfortable playing it for laughs.

    The standard-sitcom format of Partners, with its forced laugh track and cookie-cutter supporting players--Alan’s spoiled step-daughter (McKaley Miller), Marcus’ bow-tie-wearing gay paralegal (Rory O’Malley)--makes it difficult to really invest too much time in the Partners premise.
