    The problem with Big Shots is that the men don't sound like anyone at all, male or female.

    Strip away the abrasive flourishes, and what's left is a standard-issue TV mystery with cases that are too easy to solve and internal conflicts and conspiracies that make no sense.

    Spend an hour with Journeyman and you'll wish you knew how to time-travel.

    Alas, while it's fine to have a villain who is more colorful than your hero, it's not so fine to have a supporting actor who makes your star vanish whenever they're on screen together. It makes you think that what this remake of a spinoff really needs is a spinoff of its own.

    Badly written, badly cast and done on the cheap in the Canadian woods, Flash is the kind of fantasy toss-off that gives sci-fi, and Sci Fi, a bad name.

    The real sin here is the way the show wastes Hunter, a terrific actress with a proven ability to make tough women compelling.

    Alas, like most copies, Privileged is a second-rate imitation.

    If you want to get away with being offensive on TV, you have to be awfully funny, and Sit Down gets much closer to "awful" than it ever does to "funny."

    Sons wants us to care about their hopes and struggles, but gives no clue as to why we might do so.
    • 61 Metascore

    You might be able to forgive the sloppiness of the premise if something else in the episode worked, but it's all a contrived, derivative mess.

    Clearly, the show is aiming for urban grit. But that's hard to achieve when you're constantly distracting us with a ludicrous plot.

    It's all meant to be exciting, but like everything else about The Cleaner, it comes across as almost profoundly silly.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 37 Robert Bianco
    The result is a show that tries to be adult and titillating but just comes across as juvenile and badly paced, as if the cast were waiting for laughs they must realize won't be arriving.

    Honestly, Deep End is the type of high-gloss, dim-bulb broadcast hour that makes you despair for broadcast hours.

    Bored is TV that's tailor-made for people who hate TV. It won't make you laugh, but it will make you feel hipper than the room, and for some, that will be enough.

    Southland is unbearable--a pretentious, foul-mouthed, overly arty chore that will leave you with a headache should you linger too long.

    McKellen may be a sublime combo of the Wicked Witch and the Wiz, but Caviezel is no Dorothy. And sadly, this isn't much of a Prisoner.

    There are some remarkably good actors going to waste here, most of whom will no doubt wipe this showoff their résumé the moment they get the chance.

    What Miami Medical most closely resembles is CBS' equally retro and quickly canceled Three Rivers, right down to the pre-credit scenes that launch the medical story lines.

    Perhaps Leighton has a huge fan base, but nothing in her cold, starched, tightly stretched rehash of Sydney would explain her appeal to the uninitiated. Still, the apartment complex does look inviting, as do many of the Los Angeles hot spots that are being used as sets.

    Practice is still terrible, and I'm still not ready to give up.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 37 Robert Bianco
    The show suffers from severe tonal problems as it struggles to balance local eccentricities and strained comedy with an overly graphic approach to its plot-driving crimes.
    • 53 Metascore

    A ludicrously see-through supernatural crime drama that wastes a perfectly fine performance from Emily Rose as an FBI agent who tracks an escaped convict to a Maine town.

    Seldom has the byplay been as idiotic or annoying as it is on Rizzoli.

    Not a single thing William Shatner's Dad has said in those ubiquitous CBS ads has been even remotely funny, a trend that continues in tonight's premiere.

    Without characters to rely on, the show tries to hook us in with legal twists and turns--evidence found, evidence in, evidence out. But even on that level, Truth falters. The only twists you won't see coming are the ones that make no sense

    Sadly, it takes even less time to realize that Map is a near-criminal waste of talent.

    If ill-cast, unfunny and thoroughly unoriginal are your ideas of perfection, then Perfect Couples just may be.

    Bob's isn't nearly funny enough. It just lopes along, stumbling from one tasteless moment to the next.

    There are a few amusing, if not always sensible, twists, and after a rough start, Bower does display some charm and skill as the boy king. But even so, a story meant to sing simply doesn't.
