  1. 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.
  2. As assembly-line products go, Three Rivers isn't half bad.
  3. It also helps that Heather Graham as Emily is so appealing that it often distracts from the fanciful idiocy of what she's saying or doing.
  4. The show's pea-brain sociology is eclipsed only by its Dadaesque conception of courtroom drama.
  5. With tepid performances and a lifeless script, Bag of Bones feels like more of a chore than a television viewing experience.
  6. What might have otherwise been a worthy effort seems pallid and wheezing compared to the acid-etched Nurse Jackie.
  7. It's funny and warm and I dare you to watch it without getting your pants charmed off.
  8. You could do worse than check this out. [26 Sept 2002, p.E1]

  9. An intriguing crime drama.
  10. Blond toughie Kelli Giddish (Past Life) is fun to watch as the lead marshal, provided you don't have an excessively ACLUish temperament.
  11. It's hard to enjoy characters in such dire need of a hard slapping.
  12. A show with the twin themes that life is high school and the past cannot be escaped sounds inordinately depressing, but the writing and performances on Emily rise far above the apparent limitations.
  13. Valentine in small doses can be goofy good fun, and there are enough hot bods--including Autumn Reeser of The O.C. as the Oracle of Delphi's handmaiden, Kristoffer Polaha (Mad Men) as Eros and Robert Baker (Leatherheads) as Hercules--to soothe even the deepest political paranoia.
  14. What makes Welcome to the Family interesting, and rather sweet, is that it confounds expectations.
  15. A stylish but familiar high school story, one that's considerably easier to take than two of this TV season's other back-to-school efforts: "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" and "Ferris Bueller". And, it's less frenetic than "Hull High". The show's greatest assets are Priestley and Doherty, who are appealing even when the storylines aren't. [4 Oct 1990, p.G1]

  16. Watching Cult is like trying to read a Kafka novel in Sanskrit. When you’re blind. And drunk.
  17. Vulgarian avarice, unfortunately, is one of the high points of Shedding For The Wedding. Far more disconcerting is the number of couples who say they want to lose weight because sex between fat people is--well, let's spare the details and just say "yucky."
  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. [An] amusing, endearing, female-buddy sitcom.
  20. If you were reduced to hysterical laughter by the concept of herbal breast-enlargement cream in the film, you will likely be so again by the superpower-conveying acne medicine in the TV show. If not, well, welcome to Normal Town.
  21. Sadly truncated.
  22. Weep no more for Dawson's Creek, Felicity or Beverly Hills, 90210. That achy yearning in your soul for a mawkish, trashy, over-the-top, slightly dumb but kinda fun teen soap is about to be filled with One Tree Hill. [23 Sept 2003, p.4E]

  23. An exercise in moronity.
  24. It's standard fare, not worth staying home for. [26 Jan 1989]

  25. Ken Kwapis, who developed Outsourced for TV, had nothing to do with the movie. And in his hands, the film's charm has curdled into caricature. All the Indians are dysfunctional weirdos, incapable of even simple social interactions.
  26. The aggressive fakery of School Pride makes it unfortunately difficult to believe when the show throws some unexpected punches.
  27. As a kind of CSI: Sleaze City, the show is quite watchable.
  28. Dismal and disoriented, under-plotted and over-allegorized, the six-hour Prisoner miniseries that debuts on AMC Sunday night is an exercise in full-tilt dramatic tedium that will appall anybody who remembers the original and bewilder anyone who doesn't: What was the big deal about that?
  29. This kind of comedy only stands a dim ghost of a chance if it has a lot of gratuitous nudity and substance abuse, along with the words ''National Lampoon'' in the title.
  30. Fans of Grey's Anatomy femme fatale Addison Montgomery may find her a little dull now that she doesn't have a husband or boyfriend or intern to cheat on or with in ABC's spin-off Private Practice.
