    The problem with "Reunion" is that beyond the show's gimmick, there's not much to draw viewers in. The characters lack depth and personality and the situations are -- yawn -- overly familiar.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    The show is neither funny enough to be a comedy nor dramatic enough to be an engaging drama.

    At first glance... it comes off as silly sci-fi, a not-so-intriguing series that wades into all-too-similar waters as two other fall shows. The difference in this one is that the water is noticeably more shallow.

    "Just Legal" is just tedious.

    "Out of Practice" relies on trite misunderstandings and crude dialogue, both go-to gags for uninspired sitcom scribes.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    It's all a bunch of mush, but I suspect it's mush that will find a receptive audience.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    A disappointingly sex-obsessed sitcom.
    • 33 Metascore

    It appears Freddie Prinze Jr. studied at the Matt LeBlanc School of Acting given his mumbling performance and nice-guy-cum-neanderthal portrayal of Freddie Moreno.

    When it comes to both character and story, there's really not much in "Conviction" viewers haven't seen before.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    Showing the evidence really adds nothing as the story twists, turns and contorts itself in an attempt to keep viewers from tuning out before the hour is up.

    "Vanished" is a show that should leave viewers begging for more, but instead engenders more of a shrug because nothing in the pilot is convincing -- not the characters, not the setting, not the performances.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    The miniseries asks a lot of patience on the part of viewers and gives too little in return.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    "Desire" features better production values than a daytime soap, but just as wooden acting by its no-name cast and terrible dialogue.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    A mere wisp of a show, so lighter than air that it threatens to float away at any moment.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    Viewers who like their comedy broad, loud and silly might take a liking to this "Odd Couple"-like sitcom.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    A lackluster "Sex and the City" companion.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    A soapy, shallow look at how gossip is currency in Hollywood.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    Dresden's investigations amount to a lot of ho-hum hokum... and his relationships are largely paint-by-number bland.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    "Halfway House" is occasionally amusing but the characters are not well-formed.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    Where the travails, conquests and bad behavior in "Entourage" come off as dramatic, clever and imaginative, "Sons of Hollywood" is just like any other celebreality show: More boorish behavior by rich people.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    It's another one of those dismissable, disposable, oh-so-slight comedies.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    A show that's more boring than funny, an investment of entertainment time that's not worth making.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    The show squanders any high-mindedness with ridiculous shoot-'em-up scenes reminiscent of any cop show circa 1979.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    It gets bogged down by so many procedural elements that all the character moments get squished and forced out around the edges, resulting in an uninteresting blob of an overly familiar TV show.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    Writers Steven Long Mitchell and Craig W. Van Sickle are certainly inventive, if inventive can mean willing-to-crib-from-sci-fi-culture-past, but the Tin Man story doesn't hang together well.

    In a way, Unhitched reminds me of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" in its attempts to shock, but this new series feels more manufactured and far less likely to become a cult hit.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    By the end of the third episode of the second season there have been multiple hookups and breakups, enough to make your head spin or bore you to tears. Alas, I found myself experiencing more of the latter.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    I only made it through the first hour and then I gave up.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    This story of two computer I.T. guys and their computer illiterate boss is overly obvious and plays on stereotypes in an over-the-top way that may have been au courant in the '80s but feels woefully dated today.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    The Easy Money production values are low all-around but they wouldn't be as noticeable if the characters and tedious story sparked to life. They don't, and it doesn't.
