    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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    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.
    • 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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    A competent, connect-the-dots procedural that never offers much of a case for why a remake was needed.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    A not-bad spinoff that feels older than "The Vampire Diaries" and even more convoluted.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Glimmers of hope force their way through the fog of noir cliche.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    The fatal attraction story line is a long windup to a punchline you already know, and promos have revealed it as well. The mystery element is plopped down in the middle of that particular story like a lead MacGuffin.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    What's missing is passion, joy and (ultimately) interest.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    We already know too much and paradoxically too little about the JFK assassination. A TV movie needed to tell us something we don't know. No dice here.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Looking occupies some fuzzy ill-defined middle ground filled with uni-dimensional characters.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Good-hearted and gentle, Fisher struggles on the "funny" front.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    What's wrong here are some of the same elements that have made the 2013-14 network comedy crop one of the weakest in memory--not enough laughs, not enough of a show that feels like it has something interesting to say (and wants to say it).
    • 51 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Nice to look at, good performances, but ultimately a snooze.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Some excellent special effects are in Monday night's episode, but nothing particularly shocking because it's become abundantly clear by now that The Dome can do any damn thing The Dome--or the writers--want.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Headaches will be induced just in trying to unravel the plot mess Bon Temps finds itself in. At least this will be the last headache.
