  1. Wahlburgers can use a dash of humor to spice up an otherwise-lackluster, “seen it all before” series.
  2. Despite the seemingly substantial production budget, there are moments of howlingly bad special effects.... But the real problem is the movie’s lack of lust.
  3. It’s more fun hanging out with some of the other girls.... More of them please--and less of the Hannah and Adam show.
  4. It’s all in good fun, lets us in on the joke and--save for one dumb plot device--is well done and believable in its contextual universe.
  5. Both McConaughey and Harrelson turn in first-rate performances--you wouldn’t be surprised to learn that they disliked each other in real life, such is the animosity between them. But the writing is a bit overblown and the pacing static--at times downright glacial.
  6. One of the many excellent things about Downton Abbey is the variety of rich female characters creator Fellowes has fashioned.
  7. What saves Enlisted, just barely, is the effort put in by Stults, Lowell and Young, who all seem to be having a good time.

  8. The special relies very little, disappointingly, on footage from the BBC’s Holmes series; instead, it mostly uses murky reenactments, with actor Edward Cartwright playing the sleuth. More engaging is the enthusiastic testimony of various forensics specialists on how influential Holmes really was in the development of modern-day techniques.
  9. There’s nothing much going on here besides flirting cowboys and lots of beer-drinking, the producers pile on the supposed “drama” with the requisite reality show staples: forced conflict augmented by quick-cut editing and doomsday music and staged scenes.... Hoof it away from here ASAP.
  10. There are some artsy shots underscoring Clyde’s premonitions and Bonnie’s obsession with a music-box ballerina, but they’re throwaways at best and lend absolutely nothing to the saga.... The performances here are fine.
  11. The "American Idol" winner doesn’t have any theater experience, and she went on to do a lot better in the singing department than in the acting one.... If someone should be banned from singing ever again, it should be Moyer.... Cannily the producers surrounded our rookies with fairly charming kids and a formidable array of Broadway pros.
  12. Cosby’s gentle humor is a bit long-in-the-tooth.
  13. It’s both a learning experience and an emotional reminder of what can go wrong in that gray area separating man and machine.
  14. [Alpha House is] not very memorable or notable, at least not in the pilot episode that’s been made available for review.
  15. It’s not funny.
  16. [A] stunning French import.
  17. Rhys Meyers already has his fans, but he’s likely to win over skeptics as this new Dracula makes a seduction out of death.
  18. While Dancing On the Edge features what should be a compelling story, acted by a top-notch cast underscored by a terrific jazz soundtrack, it’s not quite as riveting as I expected.
  19. History fans will scoff at this rendition of a famous story and the target audience won’t give a royal tweet about it.

    The Walking Dead rewards patience and loyalty with the occasional arresting visual and edge-of-your seat intensity.
  20. Lowe and Gadiot make convincing lovers, Socha provides the comic relief and Rigby is suitably sinister as the Red Queen.... Good family fun.
  21. [Lange and Bates] are the only reason to watch.
  22. Some of the best performances seen anywhere on TV. They're all so incredible that it seems unfair to single out some and not others, but if you watch Friday Night Lights, pay close attention to Chandler, Britton and Gilford; Taylor Kitsch as beer-swilling lothario Tim Riggins; Scott Porter as the wheelchair-bound former quarterback; Brad Leland as team booster Buddy Garrity (especially him); and Jesse Plemons and Adrianne Palicki as Landry and Tyra, the school's most unlikely couple (especially them too)...Everyone on Friday Night Lights deserves an Emmy. And true to form for this great unsung show, none of them were even nominated. [5 Oct 2007, p.133]

  23. Yet another in the assembly line of fantasy/sci-fi shows, it offers little in the way of thrills, suspense or drama.
  24. Hardcore fans will appreciate the interwoven, intricate storylines, and what the show lacks in “oomph” is partly compensated for by terrific cinematography and solid acting. For diehards only.
  25. The third-season premiere [of] Homeland delivers a strong episode that repairs much of the damage done last season to this excellent show.
  26. Their stories are at turns intense, emotional, angry and humorous--and will capture your attention.
  27. It [the (pseudo-documentary) cameras] was effective in The Office; here it’s just repetitive and annoying.
  28. Sleepy Hollow has an interesting premise and some terrific CGI effects (re: the Headless Horseman), but I didn’t buy into the show’s mystical/mythological/sci-fi overtones, a mishmash of history, witchcraft and muddled Biblical prophesy that left me confused instead of intrigued.
  29. All in all, it’s just plain unarresting, which is too bad.
