    Season 6 staggers from incident to incident as Nancy and family run from their enemies--and the authorities. [13 Sep 2010, p.50]

    The premiere delivers a show that's more winkingly cute than it really needs ro be. [25 Jan 2010, p.42]

    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 adaptation of the hit 1989 movie is emotionally ample, as any decent family drama should be, but the premiere feels like a dowdier cousin of shows already out there.

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

    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.

    The premiere us well-shot, humidly atmospheric, but a little more urgency would be appreciated.

    The scale is wrong. This is an overelaborate piffle, a crate-size bon-bon. The best thinge is Papa.

    Despite the backstory, the humor is conventionally jolly. [30 Aug 2010, p.38]

    Smits is breezily bold, but the show feels fussy--flushed out with "interesting" details and characters. [20 Sep 2010l p.54]

    It's a temperature-controlled How I Met Your Mother. [27 Sep 2010, p.56]

    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]

    Gilbert seems like the one you'd most like the one you'd like to have in your actual mom's group. The others, not so much. [15 Nov 2010, p.43]

    Every time he flaps into view in his baggy hoodedness, he looks like Batman in need of a tailor. [17 Jan 2011, p.40]

    Some of it's funny, but revelatory? Not too. [6 Dec 2010, p.52]

    It's well cast but conceptually unadventurous. [31 Jan 2011, p.39]

    Not a bad concept, but the casting is out of whack. [21 Mar 2011, p.46]

    If anything, it moves so tentatively through the baffling investigation and trial that Hayden Panettiere seems to play a dozen Amandas: cheerful, furtive, erratic--and at times literally clueless. [28 Feb 2011, p.40]

    It's only fun, though, when the would-be mates turn on each other and the bat guano flies: Romancing the Stone morph into The War of the roses. [25 Jul 2011, p.40]

    Thorne has the right bristling, combative energy for all this commotion, but the pilot is hard to swallow. [4 Jul 2011, p.38]

    The "nuttiness" is contrived, but Johnny Argent, Roseanne's boyfriend of eight years, is amusingly droll. [1 Aug 2011, p.41]

    It's tacky, da--or should we say duh?--but likable. [22 Aug 2011, p.45]

    Her mind has repressed the clues [to her sister's murder]. Clever paradox, but as a result the show is an unsatisfying mix of razor-sharp thinking and befogged gloom. [10 Oct 2011, p.44]

    The show offers genuine scares, but lines like "I already cried wolf once--you think they're gonna believe me?" cast a hokey spell. [31 Oct 2011, p.35]

    Mount needs to run this thing, and he can't if he's the caboose. [27 Aug 2012, p.44]

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