    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]

    As in season 1, the acting is rich and lusty, with no costume-drama fustiness. [15 Jan 2007, p.33]

    [Perry] effortlessly brings out King's sorrow and even rage--[but] it loses something when thrown in with Go On's overly broad comedy. [13 Aug 3012, p.41]

    A sitcom that veers uncomfortably between charmingly cute and cloyingly sarcastic. [1 Oct 2012, p.38]

    It's a light, clever performance. But Episodes never convinces us this is really Hollywood. [17 Jan 2011, p.40]

    [Believing Rachel Zoe is extremely deadpan] makes her company more enjoyable as she goes about her business--developing the label, hiring staff--without much more outward joy than Christopher Walken. [12 Sep 2011, p.47]

    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]

    Copper lacks the brains or kick to lift it above being a period piece. [10 Sep 2012, p.41]

    Even with Steven Spielberg listed among the executive producers, this distant world doesn't inspire much awe. [3 Oct 2011, p.45]

    The show itself is standard construction, a framework of planks that will need more work. [6 May 2013, p.48]

    The writing could use some gloss--it's Will & Grace with no grace--but Drescher still knows how to deploy her honking rasp and Higgins has exceptional comic skills. [2 Apr 2012, p.38]

    The show is technically flawless--so is Macy strutting like a mangy Mick Jagger--but the Gallaghers' raucous, defiant pride never really engages me. [20 Feb 2012, p.46]

    By and large, they all seem to know exactly how to play to the camera and signal they're in on this nonsense. That gives Princesses a thin but distinct edge. [10 Jun 2013, p.48]

    This portrait of Prince William's courtship of Kate Middleton is better than April's plucky Lifetime movie. [29 Aug 2011, p.36]

    To work, this overheated alchemy needs a magnetic Leo, but Tom Riley is miscast--too smart-alecky and brash. [13 May 2013, p.46]
