    Its humor is simple and, at times, degrading.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Phil Gallo
    There's no sign of passion here; it's all awkward.

    The show is as directionless as its stars.

    For all the talent associated with this show that has a handle on urban humor and pics oriented toward youths ... it's startling that Platinum is so unaffecting.

    • 30 Phil Gallo
    Characters are indistinguishable from each other and forced to either mutter or shout cliched New Yawk dialogue. And the editing moves the action from one scenario to another at such an exaggerated pace that nothing gets a chance to truly resonate.

    • 20 Phil Gallo
    An uninspired collection of cliches, sex jokes and uninvolving characters.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Phil Gallo
    Carpoolers is shockingly dull and unfunny with Fred Goss shoehorned in an uninspiring role.

    • 20 Phil Gallo
    Thoroughly unfunny paranoid romp through New York. Rev up the midseason replacement. [6 Oct 2000, p.22]

    The scripts are sophomoric, the acting wooden and the direction uninspired -- [the] show starts so thin it must have been on the South Beach Diet for months.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 10 Phil Gallo
    An awkward pairing of adult relationship drama and procedural cop show, "Standoff" bombs on both counts.
