    As an ensemble they are, like their teacher, attractive but not very exciting. [10 Apr 2006, p.35]
    • 54 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    The show's a letdown, especially since it comes with one of the most lovingly assembled casts of any series. [9 Oct 2006, p.41]
    • 39 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    There are small funny moments along the way. [4 Dec 2006, p.39]
    • 40 Metascore

    Cox... doesn't have the right vulgar relish to hold the show together. [8 Jan 2007, p.35]
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    It's Court TV's first original scripted drama, and it's bad. [16 Apr 2007, p.43]
    • 79 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    An irritating comedy-drama. [15 Jul 2013]
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    Silly. [7 Nov 2005, p.41]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    Lee may lack the essential sweetness, or pathos, to make Earl ever seem like more than a cute variation on those lovable, loquacious losers who tumble, beer can spurting, through Coen brothers movies. [3 Oct 2005, p.39]
    • 48 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    Mostly it feels like an instructional film about disaster preparedness. [2 Oct 2006, p.45]
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    The show is just as bad as several other recent WB shows (Modern Men, The Bedford Diaries), neither cartoonish enough nor realistic enough to register as anything more than a conceptual shell with a handful of dried peas rattling inside. [24 Apr 2006, p.39]
    • 48 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    It's like a David Mamet parody of Roseanne. [19 Jun 2006, p.37]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    No zest, no fun. [26 Mar 2007, p.37]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    This blah drama about kids living in an LA apartment complex while hustling for big breaks is a Canadian import. [7 May 2012, p.46]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    It's more like Seinfeld reconceived for the slacker sensibility of a director like Kevin Smith or Richard Linklater. And that's what's wrong with the show: It's hard to shake the feeling that it's just someone's project.

    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    The only good thing is Anita Barone. [19 Sep 2005, p.48]
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    The show makes Survivor look like a utopia. [17 Apr 2006, p.43]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    The show is The Odd Couple redefined by psychosis and whimsy. I'm not wagging my tail. [27 Jun 2011, p.46]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    The show wants to mix in big themes (politics, money) with a family soap opera, but it just feels bloated and vague. [25 Sep 2006, p.43]
    • 64 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    Annie calls for some sort of inner steel, but Perabo looks less like an untested agent than an overwhelmed intern.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    The show's tone of enigmatic menace is overcooked. [25 Jun 2007, p.41]
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    Wonderland grabs elements from the Lewis Carroll classic, throwing them down a rabbit hole and lets them land willy-nilly. [28 Oct 2013, p.42]
    • 59 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    The production is gorgeous and the tedium unrelenting. [8 Apr 2013, p.42]

    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    Sorry, this one doesn't cick. [9 Aug 2010, p.35]

    Unlike Monk, a gently comic character coping with mental illness, Roday's just an overgrown kid. [10 Jul 2006, p.39]
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    It's like watching a marionette with one set of strings operated by John Lithgow and the other by Pee-wee Herman. [12 Mar 2007, p.39]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    The premise might make sense if Stults had a Rain Man intensity. Instead he's laid back and scruffy. [6 Feb 2012, p.40]
    • 57 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    In its zeal to avoid Johnny Depp-style silliness, any sense of pirate fun is lost at sea. [3 Feb 2014, p.44]
    • 28 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    Everything has the familiar mechanical deadness of a sitcom assembled from old ideas. [12 Feb 2007, p.39]
    • 57 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    Diaries is lukewarm and earnest. [21 Jan 2013]
    • 33 Metascore

    Maybe Prinze should just clear the soundstage of all these people, stand there alone and start over. [24 Oct 2005, p.41]
