    Cane" is not a bad show, and it's sporadically a good one. Merely, great expectations have not been met.

    • 60 Verne Gay
    Some of Mamet's dialogue is certifiably awful and some certifiably brilliant, and the dichotomy is breathtaking.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    It was... safe, reasonable, unembarrassing, uninspirational.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    ABC hasn't provided much in advance to watch--smart network!--but there were some clips for Wipeout, and they were (seriously) hilarious.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    A harmless and mostly fun little sitcom.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    You get the sense that the filmmakers' vision and Wright's are never quite in sync--or perhaps are in sync too perfectly.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    A relentlessly grim and deeply depressing viewing experience.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    A reasonably competent soap.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    A watchable and skillfully made telefilm (Jay Roach of "Austin Powers" fame directed) that is, nonetheless, marred by a melodramatic reliance on Good vs. Evil, and guess which side is which?
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    "Lost Room" is a shaggy dog story that gets shaggier with every scene. It's a tale as tall as the Empire State Building that threatens to topple in the merest breeze but - miraculously - never does.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Verne Gay
    "Brotherhood" is sharply written... Nevertheless, a heavy air of predictability hangs over "Brotherhood," which has a tendency to confirm viewer expectations instead of challenging them.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    In a word, The Listener is boring. Or, if you prefer alliteration, listless.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Nothing remotely lurid in either show [7 Days of Sex and The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet].
    • Newsday
    • 56 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Nice locales (Paris! Rome!), a couple of decent action sequences... but otherwise a tepid potboiler over-seasoned with too many spy tropes and a plot with too many gaping holes.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Nice to look at, good performances, but ultimately a snooze.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Sure, it all looks and sounds achingly familiar and blandly dumb, and maybe some of it is. But check the brain at the door. You could do much worse.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    [Chopra's] attractive, all right, and so is the rest of the telegenic crowd surrounding her. What's missing is much of a reason to care about her (or them). That's the fault of a pilot which spins a wild-eyed premise.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    A messy newcomer with a "Twilight" saga vibe and "Twin Peaks" DNA.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    The writing is sharp, but sharp-edged too. Overwhelmed with venom, Queens tends to be more mean-spirited than free-spirited. The cast is energetic, particularly Roberts and Curtis, who look like they're having a great time. But they can't quite convey that fun to the audience.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    The cast has major potential, but Life Unexpected still needs to find an original and compelling voice.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Yes, cliches about wealth and privilege abound and are confirmed, or perhaps further embedded....But NYC Prep is so eager to establish a kinship with "Gossip Girl" that it's forgotten to tell much of a story.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Princesses is not nearly as offensive as "Jersey Shore." The bad: It's still pretty dumb.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    It's a Pre-Cambrian specimen that crept out of the primordial ooze of TV past, with a rhythm so profoundly familiar that if you happened to fall asleep during the first few minutes and woke up for the last, you'd be able to mentally reconstruct the entire program from scratch.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    [Shalom Auslande's] worldview is one part Christopher Hitchens, one part Samuel Beckett, one part Louis CK.... If all that makes his funny-ish new show sound bitter, angry, provocative and even compelling, then (well) that's because it is. But Happyish can also be wildly uneven and a little too smug in its certitude.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    There's a smoldering ember of promise here, mainly in the cast, even if the pilot tended to smother it.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Name aside, Cyber's pokey and old-fashioned, but the leads are the big draw.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    It's all standard Schumer stuff, and nothing fans haven't sort of heard before, or maybe laughed at before, or cringed at before, or seen elements of before (her 2012 Comedy Central special). Those fans should be pleased. As usual, everyone else will be appalled.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    A competent, connect-the-dots procedural that never offers much of a case for why a remake was needed.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Not so much scandalous as scandalously dull.
    • 15 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Yes, offensive, but the second episode loses that element, which suggests Fox got the message. Not surprisingly, it's the better of the two.
