    "War" is sometimes funny.

    Though miles behind the sophistication of the earlier NYC-set "Seinfeld" or "Friends," "Kings" sometimes boasts laugh lines funnier than those, say, on "How I Met Your Mother," the CBS venture essentially after the same audience.

    As with "Guy," the idea is to cram this new animated cartoon series with a laugh a second, or at least a second-by-second attempt. Trouble is, too many of the laughs are so-so, too fleetingly funny or disturbingly potty-mouthed. [4 Feb 2005]

    It ambles along with formulaic plotting and cop shop melodrama. [13 Jun 2005]
    • 39 Metascore

    Though relentlessly ominous, "Surface" is, so far, only good for surface scares.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 40 Sid Smith
    Too much of the setup is a sad, cheesy cross between "Grey's Anatomy" and "Nip/Tuck."
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Sid Smith
    The scientific setup may be intriguing... But the dialogue, including the contrived sexual tension between Temperance and Seeley, is strictly canned and cutesy.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Sid Smith
    Occasionally bright and funny, "Related" is also synthetically perky and manic.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Sid Smith
    There's something about "Three Wishes" and all these shows that seems exploitative and programmatic.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Sid Smith
    Youngsters in this age group might find the show intriguing. The rest of us, censorship or no, will likely be bored.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 30 Sid Smith
    The whole enterprise is a bit sophomoric and transparent, its behind-the-scenes political battles the stuff of canned Hollywood war movies.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Sid Smith
    A bland, routine echo of its predecessor, even if it boasts much more spectacular effects.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Sid Smith
    Harmless and intermittently amusing, winning points by letting its actors indulge in improvisation, "Free Ride" is nevertheless about as unpromising as its lead character's aimless career goals.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Sid Smith
    The movie is more a series of biographical announcements than penetrating drama.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Sid Smith
    Straightforward and earnest in its storytelling, it is weakened by unsubtle acting and an emotional temperature at times so overwrought as to border on spoken opera.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Sid Smith
    The whole thing is flush with bright talent and woefully deficient in bankable gags.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 20 Sid Smith
    Unimpressive and bland.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 10 Sid Smith
    Never amusing, "Freddie" is relentlessly unreal and monotonously sophomoric.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 10 Sid Smith
    The dialogue and plot contrivances are banal, the acting is cartoon and the whole thing is more transparent than a see-through bikini.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 0 Sid Smith
    Easily the lamest new sitcom all season... [it] manages an entire half-hour without a single viable joke.
