    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.
    • 41 Metascore

    The show that premieres Sunday night, between "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy" in the space formerly occupied by "King of the Hill," is weak--not hopeless, but given the pedigree, heavily disappointing.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Lloyd
    Notwithstanding a few apparently real tears and a bleeped expletive spoken in possibly real anger, the show is made of clearly concocted crises nearly from takeoff to landing, with little to offer beyond a long, though not penetrating, look at its attractive leads.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Lloyd
    All in all, it is pretty thin and flat; there are jokes that work, and the cast is able, but not in the service of anything substantial.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Lloyd
    It's funny at times, as it would almost have to be. But it's more often vexing, like an out-of-tune guitar.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Lloyd
    The producers are so focused on creating and highlighting conflict that after a while, as with the boy who cried wolf, you would just like everyone to shut up and be eaten.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Lloyd
    The episode galumphs loudly across a checkerboard of scenes -- Stark at work, Stark at home, Stark at work at home -- that achieve neither the convincing quality of detailed realism nor the dumb fun of untethered melodrama.
    • 59 Metascore

    Housewives D.C. offers neither a portrait of Washington insider society, to which its stars have no access, or even an unvarnished look at any person's real life. People are more complicated than this, and (for much of the day) more normal--what in this context would be called "boring."
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Lloyd
    The film goes along quite well, with the usual grabs and gotchas no less effective for being so familiar, as long as no one is talking.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Lloyd
    Though it starts out with a fair bit of energy, in spite of regular paroxysms of royal lust and pique, it becomes less engaging as it goes on and grows finally rather dull.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Lloyd
    Shedding for the Wedding is a plate-load of empty calories, a lot of huffing and puffing we're meant to take as compelling even though there's little compelling in the presentation; it is just speedy.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Lloyd
    Deception, in trying for something more "real" and not quite getting there, feels fake. There is little chemistry between the people who are supposed to have it.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Robert Lloyd
    Jesus hits a few of his main talking points (first stone, do unto others, turn cheek), but only a fraction and not the most subtle of them. And neither Sleiman nor the script nor director Christopher Menaul lifts the story off the ground.
