    A supremely silly series that takes itself incredibly seriously.

    The shame is, after a very slow start, the living members of the Fisher family actually start to grow on you -- though it takes them far longer than it should. [1 June 2001, p.15E]

    Kinnear is a fine and immensely likable actor, and his wry smile and way with a line keep Keegan at least minimally sympathetic. They are not, however, enough to make him either interesting or believable.

    Unfortunately, when the show wanders off to the personality-deprived supporting characters, it collapses.

    Actually, there are some very appealing performers in Related; they just don't happen to be the stars.

    The costumes are gorgeous, the sets are time-period gems, and the actors are among the best.... But the story to which they've been appended is hollow. It's like an exquisitely wrapped empty box.

    [Lopez] lights up the screen and almost manages to carry this show over its repetitive plot hurdles. But almost is not enough.

    Neither sitcom nor drama, real-life nor fantasy, Fox's underwhelming Undeclared wanders around in some jumbled, stream-of-consciousness no man's land. Like real college freshmen, the characters seem hastily and inexpertly thrown together -- probably because they were. The producers built the characters around the people they hired, a form of paint-by-actor improv. [25 Sept 2001, p.3D]

    Angel is heavily reliant on a kind of no-stops, all-out aggressive performance from Lynch, and while there's some fun to be had from it, that style can quickly become tiresome.

    Killer Women is Cagney & Lacey without Lacey and with an all-female criminal cast--along with a higher proportion of saps than the ads would have you believe.

    If you can stick with the show past its barrage of one-note eccentrics, a lower-key charm does begin to seep through.

    Beyond doubt, great talents and noble ambitions are at play here, but somewhere in the process, those talents seem to have confused "good" with "dull" and "serious" with "tedious.

    Fahey too often seems cocky and callow. He's so sure of himself, and so superior to everyone else, you could find yourself identifying with the criminal. Luckily, Fahey's performance in the closing moments shows promise for a more restrained future. Let's hope the producers noticed the improvement. [31 Jan 1995]

    The show does manage to find some humor in the battle between Joel's young teen body and his adult mind. But it doesn't take long for the fix-my-life device to become ponderous, or for the time-travel jokes to ring false. [19 Sept 2002]

    Bynes shows promise, but neither she nor her co-star -- Beverly Hills, 90210's Jennie Garth -- has the skill to pull off physical comedy. They look as if they're being clumsy on purpose -- which defeats the comic purpose. [19 Sept 2002]

    Tucson is sweet and inoffensive -- and almost totally unamusing. The best that can be said for the show is that it's better than the only other Latino show on network TV, ABC's George Lopez...Of course, if that were the standard, WB's sitcoms would all be classics. [19 Sept 2002]

    Without Kanye West, and his conveniently timed controversy from the MTV Video Music Awards, NBC's Jay Leno Show premiere Monday would have been even more of a cut-rate, snooze-inducing, rehashed bore. If Leno's desire is to help fans get to sleep earlier, desire satisfied.

    If Scorpion were better suited to today’s TV landscape instead of bringing to mind a TV series from 30 years ago, it could be an of-the-moment series worth watching. But it’s not.
