    'Rock' is little more than one big sophomoric sex joke. ... All of this is doubly disappointing because it's such a waste of talent. [9 Jan 1996]

    If anything, the second season of this series is worse than the first.

    This is lame-brained - if relatively harmless - junk. [20 Sept 1996]

    A "comedy" that's not funny, original or in the least bit interesting.[3 June 2005]

    Carell doesn't capture the weird charm, the subtlety and the vulnerability -- and the show doesn't have any of those...Frankly, it's sometimes so painful to watch you can just imagine remotes clicking all across the country. [24 Mar 2005]

    When it doesn't bore you, it provokes you to think, "Boy, is this dumb."

    Ugly Americans is just crude and vulgar. It's not funny. It's lame. Really lame. It's not just that it's inappropriate for children, it's inappropriate for everyone. Well, everyone with an IQ in double digits. It's terrible.

    A dark, outrageously cynical, cold take on the lives of thoroughly unpleasant people living in present-day Manhattan...What's supposed to be entertainment is wearisome, whiny and annoying. [6 June 1998, p.E07]

    "Watching Ellie" isn't a total disaster. Louis-Dreyfus sings really well. [15 Apr 2003]

    A violent, confusing and ultimately unsatisfying journey to the dark side. [8 Oct 1999, p.C08]

    Something like this has to be gripping, and Containment is anything but.

    Terrible...Tremors isn't funny, scary or suspenseful. It isn't even one of those shows that's so bad it's fun. It's just bad. [27 Mar 2003, p.C04]

    Sort of "Back to the Future" by way of "thirtysomething" -- a derivative, annoying drama with a time-travel conceit. [27 Sept 2002, p.C08]

    Roadies is so convinced it's clever that it feels like it's talking down to us. It feels forced.

    It's all rather dull. Which might be remedied. Maybe. [4 Oct 2003, p.E08]

    The action sequences are cool. Unbelievable, but cool. Fast forward through the rest of this drivel and just watch those, if you must.

    It's bad writing. It's lazy storytelling. It's ridiculous.
    • 37 Metascore

    This series recycles just about every TV medical drama cliché you can imagine. It's not just that it's predictable, but it's utterly unbelievable. And all attempts to make it quirky and delightful just make it lame and dumb.

    The new Uncle Buck has a lot in common with the old version. They both, well, suck. ABC's sitcom is not funny. It's unoriginal and tedious.

    "Dinotopia" is all style and little substance. The effects are good -- especially for TV -- but far too little attention was paid to developing scripts and characters. [27 Nov 2002]

    High Society is absolutely reprehensible, and everyone at The CW should be totally ashamed for putting it on the air.

    The most disturbing thing about Wicked City is that it's not unusual. It's not original. It's not particularly interesting. It's just the latest series driven by violence against women.

    Hurrah for diversity! If only this were a show that was actually worth watching. [19 Sept 2003, p.C01]

    This show is just plain awful. A wasted half-hour of your life you'll never get back.
