  1. The biggest question you'll be left with after tonight's premiere is a big, fat "why?"
  2. For reasons too obvious to bother with, NBC managed to take a really terrific and fun premiere and somehow let it morph over the following episodes into just another take-it-or-leave-it show.
  3. Pushing Daisies is fanciful and fun, but sometimes pushes the daisies too hard.
  4. As appealing as Applegate is, the show itself struggles to produce laughs.
  5. All three actresses deserve better dialogue than they are given. But the clothes? They speak volumes.
  6. Some of it is quite funny and so are the situations in which these four characters find themselves.
  7. Think "The Apprentice" meets "Extreme Home Makeover" and you've got the heartwarming Oprah's Big Give. All shows together equal more Sunday-night tears than a feelgood Lifetime movie marathon.
  8. I don't know why Tracey Ullman's State of the Union isn't funny. Maybe it's just that the whole thing comes across as too jaded, or maybe impersonating and skewering people also requires that the comic walk the fine line between funny and cruel. And honestly, cruel stops well short of knee-slapper.
  9. With its loosey-goosey improvisations, Factory plays like a work-in-progress instead of one that was actually finished and really ready for prime time.
  10. This show could evolve into something more interesting than a guilty pleasure.
  11. Aside from learning that paddle-whacking still exists, the rest of the show is as dull and dimwitted as the students.
  12. Nothing surprised me enough, while watching 90210, to blurt out, "Oh my God!" but hey, I'm not as easily surprised as a 15-year-old from Kansas.
  13. Given that, let me also say that virtual sets don't make up for virtual plots. Not that Sanctuary doesn't have its moments, and those moments might prove to be fast and furious after tonight's two-hour premiere when the show goes to a more manageable one-hour format.
  14. Taken from a British series (although there is enough cribbing off American shows to make it seem all too familiar), this less-than-compelling knock-off follows Hood, who like House makes house calls--or in this case, crime calls.
  15. The chemistry between Winchester and Chirisa is great and very believeable, which goes to the acting ability of both men. It's not easy to make relationships seem real in this out-there fantasy.
  16. Great, great, great drummer, but a dull, dull, dull show.
  17. The Beast is weighted down by a concept that was already tired when Moses was a teenager -wizened, jaded rogue cop teaches rookie the ways of the streets and blah, blah, blah. But Swayze brings to the role, as Rourke did in "The Wrestler," the kind of seriousness that only real-life suffering can impart.
  18. Yes, it is all kind of dopey and has that "been there/ done that" feel. But Fillion is so right for the part and carries the show so well that he makes the show more fun than it deserves for an otherwise by-the-book procedural.
  19. If you've never had an in terested suitor impose the Big Gesture on you, then ABC's revival of the 1990s dramedy Cupid is so not up your alley that you may as well live on Mt. Olympus. And that just happens to be where Cupid (Bobby Cannavale) comes from in this sweet, not-horrible show.
  20. The series--a replacement of sorts for "Life On Mars" as the strange, spiritually-infused cop show--definitely has its moments, and they aren't as few and far between as I'd imagined.
  21. It's written like a dopey daytime soap, it basically makes no sense, but it sure is silly good fun.
  22. You don't have to be nuts to love Mental, which is a kind of schizophrenic "House"--but you do have to be willing to suspend disbelief to the point of, well, insanity.
  23. I'm happy to report that this season, there's More Blood! More Torture! More Killing! and More Intrigue! than last season.
  24. Don't get me wrong, there are some good laughs here, but there's also the threat that 30 Rock could easily turn into that thing the writers relentlessly make fun of--TV shows and stars that are too smug, too smart and too out-of-touch for their own good.
  25. When the show returns Sunday night, it's all business and not much pleasure for the Henrickson clan--and, in some ways, for us viewers, as well.
  26. 10 Things is silly, mindless fun and the actors are all terrific in that silly, mindless fun way that Disney teens tend to be.
  27. Mark Burnett's newest plunge into the reality waters--somewhat predictable, with all the requisite reality bells and whistles (lots of dark blue mood lighting, dramatic music, quick-cut editing)--is mildly entertaining in that summer TV kind of way.
  28. Shepherd is the star, and she does a good job of, er, Shepherding the show and making her character very likeable and accessable. I only wish the women characters were deliberately funny, instead of being accidentally funny from being stupid.
  29. Terrific special effects (except for the giant supermodel in the sky), good action, good acting, and, if they let them, the Visitors could probably put on a helluva good runway show, too!
  30. It is trashy fun as Spartacus, who is not really that interested in overthrowing oppressive Roman rule right now as he is in getting his sexed-up wife back, fights his way up gladiator rankings and out.
