  1. Ben Stiller pulls off so many inspired skits in Sunday's premiere that his series ranks as one of the fall's most promising. ... Just try to overlook the weak material. [26 Sep 1992]

  2. Until the confrontation scene, Fresh Prince coasts along on the considerable charm of Smith, who is making his acting debut at 21. Many shows before it have relied on their stars, but that last scene gives an intriguing insight into what Fresh Prince could be. [9 Sept 1990, p.H1]

  3. Parenthood tries to capture the headaches of being a modern parent. Good enough, but it also supplies a sweet brand of aspirin to ease every pain. And at an hour tonight, it's too long. It will probably work better at the half-hour length it will have in future episodes. [20 Aug 1990, p.C1]

    In this comedy, rowdy young woman gets a job in a library, and finds she likes it. [9 Sept 1996, p.1C]

    Williams and Heard are good fill- ins for Sarandon and Tommy Lee Jones. [17 Sept 1995]

  4. Surface has no complex or cynical subtexts; it's straight-ahead sci fi.
  5. Cooper and Somerville... keep things moving.
  6. There was a lot more to Sex and the City than menage a trois jokes, and whether Hot Properties can move beyond smutty snickers to develop real characters and story lines remains to be seen.
  7. However badly you thought American race relations were going, Black. White. will make you feel worse.
  8. The Loop's constant jokes about hot bodies and alcoholic excess would doubtless wear thin very quickly if not for a lunatic cast of young unknowns and gifted veteran character actors.
  9. If not exactly compelling, the pilot episode is engaging and often quirkily funny.
  10. A lot of this is pretty funny, but for 24 episodes?
  11. Longford is never less than gripping. But it unconsciously apes the moral myopia that afflicts its protagonist.
  12. If none of this quite rises to the level of Jon Stewart's intellectual hopscotch or Amy Poehler's inspired lunacy, it's nonetheless agreeably funny.
  13. Lovably silly.
  14. What it isn't is very dramatic. If watching attorneys haggle like rug traders was all that interesting, Feige probably would still be doing it. Nonetheless, there are worse ways to spend an hour than watching Raising the Bar, especially since the cast members are all quite pretty.
  15. To say that Love Monkey is derivative and predictable is not quite the same as saying it's bad.
  16. If Ozzie and Harriet, the original sitcom mom and dad, might have some trouble recognizing themselves in any of this, surely Houlihan, the bullied boy-toy nurse of M*A*S*H, will raise a clenched fist of solidarity with the hardbitten Iraq war veteran Veronica Callahan of Mercy.
  17. As assembly-line products go, Three Rivers isn't half bad.
  18. Watching Logan hand small children assault rifles for inspection will no doubt amuse gun nuts and enrage anti-gun nuts. And both camps are likely to blink at one of the (surprisingly numerous) female customers who--jokingly asked if she's carrying a weapon--whips out three concealed knives.
  19. The result is compulsively watchable pulp, provided you have a high threshold for decapitations and copulations, sometimes simultaneous.
  20. Rather than suspense, Happy Town appears to be going for the goofball irony of its ABC ancestor Twin Peaks.
  21. Fox's beguiling but unconventional drama Lone Star will have a similar problem [programmers with quick trigger fingers] if viewers demand a quick payoff.
  22. Blond toughie Kelli Giddish (Past Life) is fun to watch as the lead marshal, provided you don't have an excessively ACLUish temperament.
  23. Every case is wrapped up in precisely 42 terse minutes, with no dangling threads to trouble consciences or make syndication sales tough. If you liked any of the other L&Os, you'll probably like this one. If you didn't, well....
