    It's an enjoyable enough whodunit. The problem is McCormack. [23 Jul 2012, p.38]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Gliatto
    It is nice but overly familiar in its reliance on pop-culture signposts and snuggly sentimentality. [30 Sep 2013, p.53]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    Scott's performance is totally believable, but that doesn't mean you want to ride shotgun with him in such a tired vehicle. [19 Jun 2006, p.37]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    A solid, well-done series. [19 Jan 2012, p.42]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    Path sometimes feels like 24 downsized into The Office. [18 Sep 2006, p.39]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    The narrative seems unduly baggy and stretched out, nothing so sharply defined as a triangle. More like a rhomboid. [12 Dec 2005, p.39]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    It's pleasant enough--and thankfully it's not zany. The problem is that Danson's crisis is believable midlife comedy, while the patients' neuroses are closer to stock. [9 Oct 2006, p.41]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Gliatto
    It's like watching a manor house sink beneath the waves with loud, hissing pomp. [16 Apr 2012, p.50]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    The end product should be called Hellkittens--not bad, but its tiny claws neither grip nor rip. [13 Sep 2010, p.47]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Gliatto
    The case seems more like a good crusade for Nancy Grace than the starting point for a series. [28 Aug 2006, p.35]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    No zest, no fun. [26 Mar 2007, p.37]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Gliatto
    They're just bland. [2 Apr 2012, p.44]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Gliatto
    The stunts are a confusing mix of bullets and blowups: Apocalypse Now on the scale of Wipeout. [3 Sep 2012, p.40]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    What we have is a light, fast show about friends and couples who hang together, banter together and drink together. [8 Nov 2010, p.40]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    The tone of the first three episodes is grubby yet also precious. [11 Jun 2007, p.41]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    This new hour-long comedy is a bustling, rather scattered affair. [15 Jul 2013]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    The show makes little effort to create a sense of the potent clash--or erotic attraction--between cultures. [24 Feb 2014, p.38]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    Motive isn't ingenious enough to motivate imitations or spinoffs, but it's smooth and diverting. [27 May 2013, p.40]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Gliatto
    These people are all more ordinary and much less fabulously neurotic than you might have hoped. [11 Mar 2013, p.48]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    The CW has established a reliable [network formula]: beautiful young things plus alienation plus supernatural powers plus slim-fit leather jackets. It works again in this new series. [11 Nov 2013, p.40]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    The hot-potato miniseries dares to be unflattering. [11 Apr 2011, p.45]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    The show could be compelling, especially if the cast pulls off two decades' worth of aging. [12 Sep 2005, p.46]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 63 Tom Gliatto
    Everyone works so hard--including Arnett, even if he never lets you see him sweat--that this comes very close to succeeding. [21 Oct 2013, p.48]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Tom Gliatto
    FX's spy parody Archer is funnier, and AMC's short-lived Rubicon was a more sharply realized fantasy of work life in a shadow bureaucracy. This is a botched mission. [4 Apr 2011, p.50]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    This enjoyable series from the Grey's Anatomy team is sort of Doctors Without Borders--who are also without too many clothes. [24 Jan 2011, p.41]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Tom Gliatto
    Flowers, both the book and the new movie, is completely absurd--if you want to gauge the absurdity, just know that one of the darkest secrets in the narrative involves a doughnut--but somehow also psychologically coherent. It has a grip.

    The Most natural thing here is Palin's effortless command of the camera. In That Regard, the show is fascinating. [22 Nov 2010, p.38]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Tom Gliatto
    There are rivalries and feuds and dangerous situations, as well as a complete lack of personality. [29 Oct 2012, p.38]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    The Exes is New Girl fallen off the back of a truck. [19 Dec 2011, p.44]
    • 48 Metascore
    • 38 Tom Gliatto
    This is competent reality fare, but coming after the besotted Ali and Roberto, it's like tying cans of nitroglycerin to a honeymooner's car. [23 Aug 2010, p.35]
