    Cases piddle away as everyone hashes out deals at a conference table. Realistic, perhaps, but quite the buzzkill. [20 Aug 2012, p.41]

    It's an awful story, and it deserves a better production than this. [31 Oct 2005, p.39]

    Three Wishes is about sowing seeds of kindness that blossom into a garden of good feeling, but it can feel like a flower show dusted with endless sprayings of industrial fertilizer. [31 Oct 2005, p.39]

    Big Sexy could have used less glamour and more Mike & Molly star Melissa McCarthy's salt-of-the-earth power. [Sep 2011, p.46]

    It's a hallucinatory riff on an old noir tradition (is Raines being played for a sap by his own daydreams?), but the gimmick doesn't click. [19 Mar 2007, p.39]

    It's still a great cast, but there's a whiff of baffled frustration. [26 Nov 2012, p.44]

    Does it deliver excitement? So far, no. [3 Oct 2005, p.39]

    It's very well-done, but the opener doesn't resolve a viewer's doubts. [9 Apr 2012, p.42]

    Whether the show can figure out what to do with Madsen's semi-reformed brood is the challenge. Right now the show feels less like FX's recent, underrated The Riches than Brothers & Sisters set among the criminal element.

    It's pleasant, but not promising enough to care about beyond a one-episode stand. [19 Jun 2006, p.37]

    Shake It Up doesn't shake up the kid-com formula one bit, but it's something more than the usual shiny-sparkly cuteness. [20 Dec 2010, p.44]

    Beyond the pilot, though, it appears to be a blandly generic precinct drama. [5 Mar 2013]

    Daniels is great, biting clean through clotted dialogue that's twinkly yet sanctimonious. [2 Jul 2012, p.40]

    Even this adventuresome idiosyncratic actor [Malkovich] doesn't seem to be having much fun. [2 Jun 2014, p.46]

    The series goes overboard on cutesy domestic details but as a Bret Bulletin, it should gratify and reassure his fans. [1 Nov 2010, p.42]

    Weeds feels like a stoned Desperate Housewives: The pupils are dilated wide, as if able to pick out in sharp relief every detail of this suburban America, yet nothing really seems in focus at all.

    There are rivalries and feuds and dangerous situations, as well as a complete lack of personality. [29 Oct 2012, p.38]

    Shift is competent but useful mostly as a reminder to stay healthy at all costs and avoid this sort of place. [9 Jun 2014, p.34]

    There isn't much of a story, though. The best thing is the terrific song in the opening credits: Aloe Blacc's "I Need a Dollar." It has the sort of itchy desperation that should have driven the whole show.

    This Miami trauma-hospital drama is marginally better than "Three Rivers."
