    Apart from the Oedipal twist, it seems to be pretty much your standard "Bachelor"-style hookup show, the women all bunged up together in a fancy dormitory.

    Knight Rider is something for 12-year-old boys (and 12-year-old-boys at heart), undemanding, unsophisticated, no deeper than the thickness of a comic-book page.

    The fate of the kids on the ground is closely bound with the fate of the people in orbit, and vice versa. But it is hard to care about the people in orbit, as seriously as you're asked to take their predicaments and sacrifices. And it is not much easier to care about the people on Earth.

    [Josh Gad's] an adroit actor, and his breathy, singsongy way with Skip feels original, until it feels tiring--as that there's just a lot of him here. He obscures the view, or becomes it, and he can make the rest of the show seem sort of beside the point.

    None of this ever threatens to break into an interesting character study or story or examination of ideas.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Lloyd
    Full-fledged human beings are slow to emerge; the characters are long on attitude but short on detail.... The show could use some of the quirkiness that has enlivened Kelley shows such as "Picket Fences" and "Boston Legal."

    Once in a while, he sounds like a little boy. This much works, but whether it can sustain a series is a fair question.

    Glazer has built a beautiful edifice here, but he still needs to get some life into the place.

    Set now in New York, instead of Los Angeles, it is just more of the insane same--insaner, if anything--in a slightly nicer suit. As with John Heard, the ringer in the first installment, the picture manages to bring everyone in it down to its level. Or close enough.

    With a host of performers skilled in delivering Big Effects, the evening regularly delivered top-grade professional pop music, though it was rarely thrilling in a way that made you reconsider an act or decide to change your life.

    The production values are extremely high. This may be trash, but it comes in an attractive can.
    • 72 Metascore

    There are good things in it, some well-written scenes and dynamic exchanges and excellent acting... But, ultimately, it doesn't cohere or quite convince.

    Watching it, you feel as if you have seen it all before, and will again, until eternity ends.

    More often it is labored and belaboring, from the eccentric station-house staff--including Abraham Benrubi, wearing Willie Nelson's old pigtails, as a Chickasaw desk sergeant, and DJ Qualls as a slack-jawed Cletus of a patrol officer--to the Elvis imitators on the street and Dwight's constant promotion of Memphis as "sacred ground" to people who, after all, live there too.

    It's in the fleeting moments that the characters demonstrate affection for each other that the show hints at the better show it might become--as when (Anglo) ex-wife (Jenn Lyon) begins to help George dye his hair for a night in the dating pool. But then comedy intrudes, and she exits, stage right.

    This Prisoner is as much about Two as it is about Six and that the actor seems to be enjoying himself makes his scenes pleasant to watch even when they don't add up to much; there is a music to his readings even when the lines are obscure.

    Like a Hallmark card, it is a thing of prefabricated sentiment.
