    What's missing here, besides laughs? Chemistry.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 25 Verne Gay
    Yup, pretty awful.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Verne Gay
    Yeah, Brooklyn 11223 is awful, and awful not because it's inauthentic--it isn't necessarily to those being portrayed here--but because it's hugely phony.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 25 Verne Gay
    it's a clanking, clattering collection of collagenous clinkers--of dialogue so inept, of acting performances so preposterous, of plot points so cliched that the only question worth posing is why someone of Weaver's stature would be caught anywhere near a turkey like this.

    • 25 Verne Gay
    Grim, sad, painful.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Verne Gay
    Snooki & JWoww reeks of the end-times--the end-times for "Jersey Shore."
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Verne Gay
    Dim, dumb, dull, daffy and dippy, Discovery should know better.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Verne Gay
    Part Dr. Jekyll, part Mr. Hyde and all dumb.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Verne Gay
    With Tools, there is no discernible style, or point of view, or voice, or humor that ever rises to the level of originality.

    As expected, the transition from big screen to small doesn't exactly work. What this Bad Teacher really needed to do was outsmart the source material--make this version more clever, or sharper, or funnier, or (above all) make it for adults.

    Airing five nights a week and featuring 10 strangers - not to mention insufferable hosts Julie Chen and Ian O'Malley - this will fill our screens for the next three months. Unless we happen to leave the set turned off. Which, judging from last night, might be advisable. [6 Jul 2000]

    It is so ancient - in approach, tone, style and energy - that you can almost see the dust bunnies tumble across the set.

    "What About Brian"... wants to be "thirtysomething" for twentysomethings, but it is clichesomething.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Verne Gay
    A slight, cartoonish, and terribly, terribly obvious dramedy.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 20 Verne Gay
    "Donnellys" creaks and sighs, moans and slumps, and ambles along like a world-weary cliche, unable or unwilling to lift its head above the humdrum banality to which it has been consigned.

    Because so many viewers will have seen this kind of reality show before, their minds may start to wander by the second commercial break.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 20 Verne Gay
    It's slow. It's dull. It's listless.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 20 Verne Gay
    "Emergency" is sodden, forbidding, a waste of 22 good minutes.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 16 Verne Gay
    Why, then, this debacle, with bad jokes, listless lines and a parade of cliches? Beats me.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 16 Verne Gay
    It's horrible, horrible, horrible, and you will hate yourself for laughing--although I'm afraid you will.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 16 Verne Gay
    Based on the 22 irredeemably painful minutes TV Land offered for review, this show is clunky, sodden, cliched, drab, bland and terribly (terribly) weary.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 16 Verne Gay
    A little too raw, especially in this hour.
    • 49 Metascore

    The worst new show of 2014 can take solace that there are still 358 days left for another one to exceed it.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 10 Verne Gay
    Dreadful.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 10 Verne Gay
    It's as if we've all passed this way (many times) before and could write the dialogue, act the scenes, predict the outcome all in our sleep.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 10 Verne Gay
    If you expect the worst, your expectations will probably be met.
    • 51 Metascore

    "Help Me" is a Gobi Desert of laughs... There's a strong odor of desperation on-screen, as if the competent and seasoned actors here know they're in this for a short ride. Indeed, they are.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 10 Verne Gay
    Problem is, the show is more comfortable with cliché than subtlety.

    Finally, the best new comedy of the 2005-06 TV season is here... What's that, you say? This is a drama and not a comedy? Oh, dear.
    • 32 Metascore

    Utterly vacuous and incompetent.
