    Stick-to-your-ribs television, the sort of weekly program that instantly wins your heart and your allegiance. [25 Aug 1994]

    Vital, vigorous television that results in considerably more than Brooklyn abridged. As is true of Neil Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs" or Woody Allen's "Radio Days," "Brooklyn Bridge" is a radiant recollection of the boisterous borough, a sweet, affecting ode to a piece of New York real estate and its durable inhabitants. [20 Sep 1991]

    Austin packs a sweet, loose-limbed sensibility reminiscent of Jim Jarmusch's "Stranger Than Paradise" by way of early Woody Allen that makes this debuting series one of the more interesting and inventive efforts likely to air this season. [10 Sept 1997]

    Its sharp, wily wit will be immediately appreciable. Here is a comedy construct that hits like "The Brothers Karamazov" and plays like the brothers Marx. [25 Sep 1992]

    Not the real thing but a contrived setup that, nonetheless, radiates a mesmerizing draw that keeps you watching. [24 Jun 1993]

    B&T as live-action weekly television turns out to be a captivating way of riding the video waves. [30 Jun 1992]

    "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist" is not always as clever or as comically savvy as it thinks itself. ... Yet at this point, there are more than a few scripted inventions to keep the viewer tuned in and returning for future sessions. [25 May 1995]

    A charming small package. ... As was true of the 1989 feature film, TV's "Honey" transmits good, buoyant fun. [25 Sep 1997]

    "Against the Grain" is kitsch masquerading as rugged regional realism and is, surprisingly, involving on both counts. [29 Sep 1993]

    Although Babylon 5 is less than cutting-edge sci-fi, it does display a certain kind of pluck, a sense of humor, some neat special effects and an assemblage of aliens every bit the equals of their human counterparts. [25 Jan 1994]

    Good-looking, comely and honestly camp, Lois & Clark is an engagingly stylized interpretation of the Ben-Day dotted citizens of the D.C. comic, a snappy, revisionist revisit to the boldly colored cartoon world that Superman and company originally called home. [10 Sept 1993]

    A funny treatment, though the pilot is not without a few clunking moments. [21 Mar 1995]

    Its efforts at grainy, gritty realism (e.g. a quality visually tried for in occasional stop-go cuts) comes off more as MTV hip-hop style than storytelling with true inherent significance. [30 Sept 1996]

    Alienation, acceptance, anger, askew camera angles and other such stuff now part and parcel of "R.W.'s" life-as-TV-soap-opera are all here and accounted for. Now if only something truly genuine would occur in MTV's so-called "Real World." [23 Jun 1994]

    Overbearing ... Reiser and Hunt can't seem to resist going even broader than the already wide material requires. And though some humor does occasionally result, overall they take things too far, turning comic possibilities into missed opportunities. [23 Sep 1992]

    While Melrose's comely denizens sometimes do indicate more about human nature than a GQ or W cover, the angst and Sturm und Drang of Melrose Place's escapades basically manifest not so much as a new p.o.v. but a change in zip codes and sideburn length. [8 July 1992]

    Christopher Chance and his incredible flying machine mates are too uni-dimensional to win our interest, let alone our sympathy and alle-giance. [20 July 1992]

    The video equivalent of a cold fusion experiment. At first the results seem promising but prolonged scrutiny reveals deep flaws...In trying to turn Barry's written P.O.V. into the filling of a weekly sitcom, the humor undergoes a transformation that makes it disappear. From page to screen it can't be seen. [20 Sept 1993]

    A weak situation comedy that has little situation or comedy and basically brokers in silliness and bosh. [20 Sept 1996]

    It's dismissible juvenilia ... a collection of poorly paced, lowest-common-denominator setups that are not even sophomorically funny or scatologically goofy. [13 Aug 1997]

    • 51 Metascore
    • 20 Miles Beller
    Plays with an all too rapid-fire, rat-tat-tat pace that tramples humor in its forward rush...Quite so, the jokes come at breakneck speed and are not very amusing. Moreover, there is something about this series that seems disingenuous, owing more to tired situation comedy convention than to freshly crafting a view of the American family within the sitcom context. [24 Sept 1993]

    Yes, a lot of Taylor goes an awfully little way, "Home Improvement" being a genuinely unfunny transmission devoid of anything much akin to what might remotely be categorized as humor. [17 Sep 1991]
