    From the time the first ghost story was told around some fire, people have enjoyed a good fright — but the prevailing feeling being provoked here is less one of terror than of abject despair.

    ABC's upcoming Malibu Country is a more egregious waste of talent. But only Emily can provoke an almost irresistible urge to scream, "Shut up, shut up, shut up," at your TV screen.

    Meryl Streep would have trouble making Gerstein's never-been-there, never-done-that creation sound anything but ludicrous.

    The season's worst show.

    There are laughs to be had in this inept series from Amy Holden Jones (Indecent Proposal), but they're all of the laughing at--not with--variety.

    Work It is dreadful almost beyond comprehension: witless, tasteless, poorly acted, abominably written, clumsily directed, hideously lit and badly costumed.

    Seldom has a major network launched a show boasting as many terrible performances or jaw-dropper moments as this premiere.

    The result is a deadly, deal-driven mistake that takes a network that has made great sitcom strides forward one unfortunate step back.

    Even with network movie expectations at an all-time low, you might expect more from November's only broadcast miniseries than an overblown repeat. We've seen enough bad weather and bad movies to last a lifetime; why anyone would want to see the two combine again is beyond me.

    The result is a laugh-free, thought-free enterprise that wastes talent, time and the benefits of a Big Bang lead-in.

    An amateurish bungle of a comedy.

    [The original series] had energy and glamour and a self-aware sense of frothy fun, all of which are missing from this lugubrious update.

    What we expect in exchange are a few thrills, a few jolts and some convincing destruction, none of which this cheap, embarrassing film delivers.

    The Bedford Diaries... is not merely the worst show of the vernal season but one of the worst ever concocted by the soon-to-vanish WB.

    An appalling combination of precious and pretentious.

    You're left with a show mothers and daughters can both hate.

    Not content to simply be stupid, Outlaw is more than a little insulting.

    A show that feels like it's multiple terrible shows in one. It's like he pitched four bad ideas to NBC, and the network decided to pour them all into one hour.

    The weakness of the plot might matter less if the regular characters had something special to offer, but Past Life's are standard-issue blanks.

    It's a laugh-free, stiffly performed weekly stroll through Mulaney's fictional life.

    The actors do their best, but most of what they're doing is hopelessly, witlessly predictable.

    If only Harm had stuck with "strange" and not barreled right on past to "stupid."

    Donovan is barely present, and while Heche may have her strengths as an actress, warmth would not seem to be one of them.

    Don't get your hopes up. This second installment of Big Brother is just as dull as the first. It's just dull in a different and sleazier way. [10 Jul 2001]

    That Suspect is a spinoff of Criminal Minds, network TV's worst series, is just the dung icing on the dirt cake.
    • 55 Metascore

    The characters here creak, including the talking bear who mirrors the alien in American Dad and the dog in Family Guy, and the watered-down setup now feels like a copy of a copy of a copy. What's worse, in three episodes, there's hardly a laugh to be found. Bad taste, we'll accept. Boring we won't.

    Five minutes of their witless, charmless, inane babbling, and what you'll be thinking is likely to be unprintable in a family publication.

    If straining-to-be-inspirational, card-shop stocking fillers such as A Perfect Day are the best TV can do, then really, leave us to contemplate the meaning of the season in peace.

    The stars, all of whom have done better work in better projects, give it their all, but the show is too snide, condescending and unpleasant to be salvageable.

    Rather than art re-creating and explicating reality, How to is art mimicking reality shows, with all their annoyances and posing.
