    Lame storytelling and dialogue.

    There's nothing remotely fresh or original about "3 Lbs." But it is well made, reasonably diverting and lucky to be on CBS.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Duffy
    With too many hints of recycled stock characters and formula thriller cliches, "Drive" sputters off the starting line.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Duffy
    Though the glossily well-made "Vanished" may prove intermittently diverting, it lacks any of the original serial thriller zing of far better shows like "24," "Lost" or "Prison Break."
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Duffy
    "Run's House" seems to be the reality sitcom flip side of "Being Bobby Brown."

    Despite her extreme makeover, this new Bionic Woman is mostly slick, dull and portentously sullen.
    • 51 Metascore

    Yes, the show's glossily generic. But the attractive cast clicks.

    Imperfect but promising. [14 Apr 2003]

    Two and a Half Men manages to generate some smiles. Series creator Chuck Lorre ("Dharma & Greg") has scrounged up a few funny moments for the series premiere. But not enough of them. [22 Sept 2003, p.6E]

    Slick, predictably convoluted and pumped up on conspiratorial dread, "Day Break" may be a trifle late to the serial thriller party.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Duffy
    Even with Blackthorne's occasionally engaging portrayal of Harry Dresden, this whodunit lacks the wit and imagination that might transform it into something special.

    The sex scenes -- yes, there's plenty of bare skin and rising erotic temperatures -- alternate between sensitive and slightly cheesy, a la "Red Shoe Diaries." [16 Jan 2004, p.6H]

    Despite the dependably daft charms of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, all the tinkering that's been done to "Watching Ellie" may leave you feeling like something funny has been lost. [15 Apr 2003]

    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Duffy
    This so-so show uses the sight gag style of "Scrubs" -- visualizing a character's thoughts and fantasies -- minus the funny medical comedy's superior wit and comic smarts. [24 Sept 2002]

    "Justice" offers slick, efficiently produced whodunit escapism without a whit of real originality or dramatic spontaneity.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Duffy
    Breezily prefabricated sitcom humor that lacks the fresh zing of anything remotely original.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Duffy
    There's nothing remotely hip or ahead of the trendy zeitgeist curve about "Hidden Palms." But there are some of those agreeable guilty pleasures to be found, like cliffhanger twists at the close of each episode that keep the mystery bubbling.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Duffy
    Nice supporting players like Grant Shaud ("Murphy Brown") and Clea Lewis ("Ellen") help enliven the otherwise formula sitcom fun. Most of the time, though, "adigan Men is just a breezy masculine trifle with a brogue. [6 Oct 2000, p.12D]

    Nothing revolutionary here. [6 Oct 2000, p.12D]
