    Lopez loses because he's caught in the middle of a ho-hum sitcom with few real laughs -- much like ABC's very similar "My Wife and Kids" and "According to Jim." Oops. [27 Mar 2002]

    A tepid traditional sitcom.

    A lame, uninspired faculty farce.

    A pretty bland romantic confection.

    • 25 Mike Duffy
    A mediocre and predictable adventure series based on a mediocre and predictable Jean-Claude Van Damme movie. [22 Sept 1997, p.5E]

    [A] trite little laugh-track factory.

    • 25 Mike Duffy
    Just another tediously cliched crime procedural. Whodunit? Who cares.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Mike Duffy
    This laugh-track loser pretty much wastes the not inconsiderable comic talents of Jon Cryer ("The Famous Teddy Z") and David Krumholtz ("Slums of Beverly Hills"). [6 Oct 2000, p.12D]

    Disheartening proof that even the most talented producers sometimes concoct a prime-time crock.
    • 53 Metascore

    Slick, cynical teen soap nonsense.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 25 Mike Duffy
    A ho-hum traditional sitcom filled with formula banter and cliched cuteness.
    • 29 Metascore

    Offers only slightly more entertainment appeal than viewing a test pattern. [10 Jul 2000]

    A tediously bloody bore.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Mike Duffy
    A tediously insipid show that is perilously low on wit, intelligence or imagination.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Mike Duffy
    In terms of intelligence, wit and quality, "Desire" is a serious cut below most prime time drama series.

    Crusading criminal prosecutor Annabeth Chase... [is] the most irritating lead character on any new drama series this fall.
    • 29 Metascore

    [A] cheesy carnival of reality TV.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 25 Mike Duffy
    This is by far the least charming--the lame, leering sitcom tales of two brainiac losers (Johnny Galecki, above, and Jim Parsons) goofily smitten by the babelicious girl next door (Kaley Cuoco). It's about as witty as a pocket protector.

    Tell Me You Love Me is little more than an intellectually pretentious, emotionally vapid snoozer.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 12 Mike Duffy
    Despite Lithgow and Tambor's capabilities, the series sags badly amid the moldy excesses of generic, over-the-top slapstick.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 12 Mike Duffy
    A slick 'n' grim crime procedural piled high with deadly dull cliches

    [A] dreadful little laugh-impaired comedy.

    Derivative supernatural schlock like this should have a stake driven through its silly storytelling heart. [9 Mar 2007]

    Here's an early candidate for worst miniseries of the 21st Century.
