  1. Somebody should kiss a frog or something to break the evil spell and let this show be as much fun as it should be.
  2. If you're a fan of "Russian Dolls," you may enjoy taking a walk on the not-wild side with these all-American Muslims.
  3. Some of this show is funny, but you may want to put paper down on your couch to keep you from catching an STD.
  4. It seems to have been boiled down to its simplest ingredients.
  5. It's mentally exhausting, at least in tonight's opener, to figure out exactly what the heck is going on here, and in which reality we're placed at any given moment.
  6. While the show can be quite interesting and even compelling--you will hear some very smart women say some very smart things--there is something very wrong here. de Cadenet confesses to being married at 16...she was 19.
  7. This isn't ground-breaking TV, but if you're looking for a few good laughs and a lot of action without the commitment of marriage, Common Law the way to go.
  8. The show is so slow-moving that you may find yourself fighting vainly the old ennui.
  9. [Final Witness is] a very good true-crime show. But that voice-from-beyond narrator is just so very wrong.
  10. The ["quirky-genius" cop] genre is getting a bit moldy around the edges--and Perception doesn't add much to the tired mix.
  11. Not that this family of five adult sons, along with matriarch, Tina, and patriarch, Bobby Sr., aren't fascinating. They are. I just don't know if I want to live with them and all their unnecessary drama.
  12. Hotel Hell is as much fun as the others [shows], even if the formula has been used so many times, you're ready for a new dish.
  13. The scenes are always gritty and often very violent, which makes great TV. However, the dialogue? Whew. I mean, seriously? "She is waiting for you with breath bated!"
  14. Chiklis chews scenery--in a good, very good way--and Quaid is terrific, but both deserve far better than what they're given here.
  15. The supporting cast, Kate's British co-worker at the bar, BJ ("Do you know what BJ means in my country?") played by Lucy Punch, and Ben's best friend Tommy (Echo Kellum), are the glue that holds this bro and sister together. Or at least this show together.
  16. It remains to be seen if Underemployed will have time to spread its dramatic wings and shake off its ham-fisted preachiness--but it's off to a promising, if predictable, start.
  17. Gummer's a good actress in a mediocre sitcom; one that skirts the line between grown-up series and one that will appeal to The CW's young-girl demographic.
  18. If you want exploitation, The Houstons: On Our Own sinks to a new level when the whole family-including elderly matriarch Cissy Houston-visits Whitney's grave site for the first time.
  19. It’s just that we’ve seen most of this before, and despite its creative pedigree and a solid cast--fronted by the always reliable Ving Rhames and Alfred Molina--there’s not enough to set Monday Mornings apart from “ER,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Private Practice,” et al.
  20. Life Is But A Dream is a vanity project that could have been a helluva film--if she had given up control and let the story tell itself.

    If the crimes that drive "Law & Order" have the cops who solve them and the lawyers who prosecute them shaking their heads, the sex crimes dealt with by Special Victims will have the cops - and viewers - holding onto their stomachs.
  21. If yet one more cop show about the brash young rookie and the older, tired guy thisclose to retirement is enough to make you go completely insane and start watching, say, “Smash” or something equally upsetting, then for sure you want to stay away from Golden Boy. However, if you love cop shows that aren’t really procedurals so much as stories about the internal politicking of the NYPD, than maybe Golden Boy is just what you’re looking for.
  22. If you will miss Spartacus when it ends--and you like your history with a big dose of campy fun--this one’s for you, Shield Maiden.
  23. Much of this is tediously drawn out, with crazy fly-overs between Biblical Chapters that may make you think it’s “Survivor: Holy Lands,” which, of course, it is.... Things really pick up when Jesus shows up.
  24. It ain’t Hitchcock, but it ain’t bad. Too bad it ain’t new.
  25. Barr is suitably creepy as Chris and McCormack--while slightly miscast--turns in a solid performance. For true-crime buffs only.
  26. Sheen is so entertaining to watch that the series at least earns a 2 1/2-star rating. It also earns one on the basis of its name, which invites the irresistible parallel.
  27. The thing that does give this show its grounding is the acting. Dancy is a perfect, tortured soul; Fishburne is everyman with a brain; and Mads Mikkelsen is perfectly named. What is lacking, though, is any respite from the darkness.

    We won't be able to avoid the realization that "Sex" as we knew it was a lot more fun than it is as Darren Star, who persists in seeing all New York as "Central Park West," knows it. [5 June 1998, p.113]
  28. Suspend disbelief and you’ll have fun, but believe and you’re in trouble.
