    Yes, it's a fantasy, but it's an oddly off-putting one.

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

    Sex, treachery, murder: Betrayal is a show with everything--except decent writing, believable characters, and anything else that would provide a reason to watch.

    The adventures aren't funny, and the friends aren't believable. But the real flaw is Reiser seems to have missed one of the central points that gives Curb its odd, counterintuitive appeal: David's willingness to paint himself in an unwaveringly horrid light.

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

    What you're left with is a show that reeks of too many cooks, and one Walsh seems ill-equipped to save.

    It doesn’t work.

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

    Dr. Beaumont Rosewood [is] a grating piece of work.

    Guys With Kids is an idea in search of a show. And a better idea.

    Is it too late to make her [Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick)] Iron Fist? Because the current guy doesn’t have the right mettle to defend anything.

    As long as the much better Grey's is still on the air, there's absolutely no reason to watch this insipid variation.

    An amateurish bungle of a comedy.

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

    The problem with this trio isn't that they're unmanly; it's that they're morons.

    There is something wrong with the most popular and prosperous broadcast network churning out work that is this witless and lifeless.

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

    Vulgarity and lack of taste aren't the issues here as much as a deadening single-mindedness.

    Witlessly Americanized by Michelle Nader (King of Queens), Kath manages to waste the talents of Molly Shannon while exposing the limits of Selma Blair's comedy range.

    The special effects, which had been the show's only saving grace, are now more flat and more obviously computer-generated. The dialogue, which had been laden with goofy, new-age aphorisms, is now just goofy. Oh, and the cast, which had been glaringly weak, has now been replaced with a new set of actors. Unfortunately, the new cast is even worse than the first crowd, and is even less capable of conveying a normal human emotional response. [27 Nov 2002]

    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.

    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 scene before the opening credits is awful enough all by itself to send you fleeing to any one of the other networks, all of which have something better to offer.

    [Kreuk and Ryan are] terrible, but the material may have left them with no other option. Luckily, in this world of 1,000 channels, you have plenty of other options.

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

    The only thing challenging about Wicked City is the effort it takes to sit through it, and the only thing marginally fresh is its effort to up the perversion ante through a female accomplice who likes to squish spiders in her hands and rip the stitches out of old men.

    Mistaking cynicism for sense and creepy for sexy, Notorious just might have been able to yank yet one more thread out of the social fabric--were it not, almost thankfully, so numbingly lazy, stupid and inadequate.

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

    If you are a Timecop, eons can flash past in the blink of an eye. If you're watching Timecop, a mere hour can seem like an eternity. [22 Sept 1997, p.B-8]
