    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.

    What's missing is passion, joy and (ultimately) interest.

    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.

    Looking occupies some fuzzy ill-defined middle ground filled with uni-dimensional characters.

    Good-hearted and gentle, Fisher struggles on the "funny" front.

    • 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).

    • 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.

    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.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    This is an extremely tough balancing act or--back to the musical analogy--this is a show where the notes have to play exactly right. They don't here.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Messy, discordant opener with potential.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    After this overheated effort to make Charlie interesting, or at least different, she's basically just another Carrie Mathison without the pills.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Good-looking--also lethargic, languid, listless and a little bit lifeless--at least in the early going.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    After a rough start, Backstrom settles into an obvious, and comfortable, procedural rhythm.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    It's still the Meredere (or Deremere) show, and Cristina's right. It's just ... so ... over.
    • 67 Metascore

    I think I comprise a third type--a wary Weeds fan who's happy it's back but hardly ecstatic.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    While "Men" may have the nutritional equivalent of stick gum, there's some genuine charm here along with a surprisingly seasoned and talented cast.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    Cynical, randy, derivative and as wearily familiar as a cup of cheap joe, "Freddie" is also expertly cast, acted, written and directed.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    "Teachers" isn't half-bad.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    There is at least one troubling aspect to "Wishes" - an abundance of product placements within the show itself, which begs the question: Does salvation come with a price tag?
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    If Cecil B. DeMille's 1956 film was the Barnum & Bailey Big Tent version of the story of Exodus, this is the snippy little art house version - smarter (perhaps), a lot more accurate (perhaps) and indisputably duller.

    The good news is that "Brothers & Sisters" isn't even remotely a disaster. The bad news is that it isn't even remotely a success either.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    To love "Smith" is to love an ice cube. There may be a cold beauty to the craftsmanship of this enterprise, but there's a pinched, frostbitten heart at the center of it as well.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    There's a wonderful cast here... There's even an intriguing core idea... But the show also feels phony from beginning to end.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    Swingtown can't decide whether the '70s were transformative or deformative; there's a distinct ironic edge, applied mostly through the use of music.... But that edge isn't nearly sharp or funny enough (unlike "Weeds"), which tends to muddle the point of view.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    Murdered innocents, a gory sword fight in slow motion and dry, witty, dialogue. Yes, it's all here, but what's missing is ... excitement.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    The first half is tautly produced, before there's a dramatic--and dramatically dull--downshift that'll get you ready for beddy-bye.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    The pilot is, in fact, baffling, and needlessly so.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    Cho has long been an acquired taste, and - while her fans will luxuriate in these 22 minutes--few newbies will acquire that tonight.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Verne Gay
    Purefoy brings some raffish charm to the role, but these days, who wants to embrace raffish philandering philanthropists--particularly ones so defiantly dim.
