    The cast has major potential, but Life Unexpected still needs to find an original and compelling voice.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Finding original humor in this tired old horse of a format may not only be difficult, but close to impossible.

    Sarah Palin's Alaska is part-travelogue, part-"Todd and Sarah Plus Eight," part-slick political infomercial, and part Mark Burnett hokum - and oddly fascinating for all those reasons.

    As a family, they are particularly eager to convey a sense of normalcy, but Sister Wives still doesn't have much interest in exploring the religious underpinnings or larger ethical questions of this anything-but-normal lifestyle. You're left without a solid clue why the Browns--all five of them--have gone to this much trouble.

    Nice looking, but not nearly enough action.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Most of the material flatlines even before it begins, while never rising to the level of the HBO series to which it pays homage.
    • 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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    It's inert, lackluster and a trifle old-fashioned. Even the action scenes feel geriatric. It's also vaguely silly--a big reason the venerable good twin/evil twin gambit is better suited to comedy than drama.

    A rare HBO misfire--but I do hope Amy finds peace.
    • 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.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Sure, there are some fun moments. Sure Brosnan looks mah-velous. He always does. But a little less plodding plot and a lot more action, please.

    • 58 Verne Gay
    In spots, it's been turned into an antic Saturday morning cartoon. A shame.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Too brittle and full of bile to cleanly hit the target.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    The River still has a quirkily eccentric charm. It's just so deliciously odd.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Not so much scandalous as scandalously dull.
    • 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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    The show ambles along without getting viewers to particularly care about Alex or Pete. Without that requisite electricity, they're hollow, or just sad.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Nothing remotely lurid in either show [7 Days of Sex and The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet].
    • 68 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Violent and dull.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Perception is both clever and ridiculous.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Not great comedy, but hopefully the beginning of long overdue recovery process for a talented, troubled actor.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Still sweet and sad, but often dour and slow, too.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    It's all weirdly engrossing.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    The Following is a bummer of significant proportions. Not that it's bad--it's not--but it's bleak, sordid, blood-spattered and creepy (though not necessarily always "creepy" in a good way, like "The Walking Dead").
    • 69 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Hannibal isn't quite the sum of its admittedly evocative parts. The story is often strained, or like that poor synth operator, overextended; the shocks tend to be operatic--oversold as opposed to a deft sudden jolt to emotional solar plexus.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    The Latina female leads are--to put this in a way that's both politically correct and blandly inoffensive--vivacious.... That trademark Cherry wit, written in acid, is evident here. too.... But the biggest problem here is the sprawl--lots of stories, lots of characters, lots of colors--and not one them going anywhere in a hurry.

    A messy newcomer with a "Twilight" saga vibe and "Twin Peaks" DNA.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Falco--as always--remains one of TV's bright shining lights, but her Nurse Jackie suddenly feels like a work in progress.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Thin, flavorless high school gruel, but the lead bad boy is intriguing.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Princesses is not nearly as offensive as "Jersey Shore." The bad: It's still pretty dumb.
