  1. No surprises here, unless Shannen Doherty oozes out of one of the petri dishes. [23 Sept 2003, p.4E]
    • Miami Herald
  2. A dumb but powerful serialized mystery that has an equal shot at being the season's biggest cult hit and its most mind-boggling flop.
  3. At least Azaria and Hahn do have an uncertain chemistry that might have developed into something watchable had the producers not decided to provide it with a Greek chorus of locker-room cracks by loutish co-workers.
  4. An abysmally dumb plot peopled with some of the most irritating characters in the history of television.
  5. Cougar Town (which doesn't debut until Wednesday, but I wanted to give you time to disconnect your TV set) is downright unwatchable, an agonizingly unfunny gutter-ball that will almost certainly be the first of the new season's shows to be canceled.
  6. Re-visiting Star Trek on television holds the same nostalgic, socko appeal that the boffo-box-office movies do. I didn't miss Kirk, Spock and friends. [28 Sep 1987]
    • Miami Herald
  7. The jibes quickly wear thin and predictable, and there's simply not much to Help Me Help You.
  8. If you can ignore stuff like the impossibly clean subways and the fact that the cops call one another ''constable'' with straight faces, Flashpoint is actually rather formulaic.
  9. Welcome to The Captain is less a TV show than a grim ransom note from the striking Hollywood writers.
  10. No, it's not Twilight--but it's not bad, either. The Vampire Diaries, The CW's new fang-gang drama, successfully hitches the sanguinary sexuality of the vampire ethos to the in-group/out-group dynamic of the teen soap.

    Williams and Heard are good fill- ins for Sarandon and Tommy Lee Jones. [17 Sept 1995]
    • Miami Herald
  11. The CW’s newest wallow in adolescent angst.
  12. The sheer power of these stories carries The Kennedys even during the occasional stumbles that result from trying to pack 40 years of history into five and a half hours of programming.
  13. Sharply written and acted.
  14. The humor is driven mostly by a relentless slapstick vulgarity, particularly concerning the flatulence and sex habits of parents. If you’ve got a high tolerance for those sorts of jokes, it is funny indeed.
  15. Virtually everything in Accidentally on Purpose is some kind of cheap sexual crack or double entendre. The essential sweetness Elfman showed in Dharma & Greg and the later, unfortunately little-watched Courting Alex curdles into mean self-parody as she scorns her new boy-toy as an intellectual and economic inferior even as she grovels before his bedroom skills.
  16. With a gorgeous cast (even -- especially? -- the dead ones), plenty of cool slow-mo martial arts action, a glorious collection of lethal hardware and an intriguing plot, Blade's got something for the whole family, provided they rank somewhere between the Munsters and the Mansons in sensibility.
  17. There’s also plenty of good writing and acting in the drama Lucky 7, though to exactly what purpose is difficult to say.
  18. More often, though, the laughs range from tepid to nonexistent.
  19. None of them is very interesting, and it's actually kind of hard to tell them apart.
  20. Kelley's compulsive fascination with erratic eroticism turns everything in Swingtown into hypersexualized sleaze.
  21. After a few minutes in front of ABC's bewildering sorcery drama Eastwick, you may wish that Bewitched's Samantha would twitch her nose and make the whole thing disappear.

    In this comedy, rowdy young woman gets a job in a library, and finds she likes it. [9 Sept 1996, p.1C]
    • Miami Herald
  22. What Fox programmers failed to notice was that their new show was peopled entirely with unpleasant characters working from a 100-percent laugh-free script. Watching Running Wilde, you can actually feel your eyes and ears disconnecting as they go off in search of some way to amuse themselves.

    It's really one lonnnnng sex joke. That said, some of the punch lines are pretty funny.
  23. Oprah's Big Give is no mere appallingly bad television show but a refutation of human decency itself.
  24. Kolchak's ridiculously precious writing is not the only thing that rings false about Night Stalker.
  25. It's more like M*A*S*H* for the four-legged, a subversive and perversely funny workplace comedy.
  26. It’s entertaining and engrossing.
  27. It's an interesting approach, but despite well-drawn characters and the strong cast, there's a sense that the show is trapped in amber, a perfectly preserved relic from another age.
