  1. Capture is enjoyable in a “Hunger Games” sort of way--although instead of losers getting killed, they get thrown off.
  2. Some of it is quite funny and so are the situations in which these four characters find themselves.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. The biggest question you'll be left with after tonight's premiere is a big, fat "why?"
  6. 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.
  7. In tonight's premiere of "Bones," for example, super-sleuth Temperance concludes from the young victim's bones that she was probably a tennis player -- a nifty conclusion, but one that has no bearing on the case. It's a factoid that leads nowhere, which is kind of where "Bones" goes in its premiere episode.
  8. The miniseries is often visually striking, with helmer Agnieszka Holland delivering stylish, cinematic work. But the new script also undermines her mood-setting efforts with cheap shock tactics.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Alphas is fun, sure, but it has a "been there, done that" feel.
  12. As soapy, sappy, Christmas adaptations go, this one's pretty good - until it totally falls apart at the end with the most preposterous finale imaginable.
  13. If True Detective is going to be more than a vehicle for eclipsed stars trying to reignite their careers, Pizzolatto & Co. will have to dig deeper for a story that entertains--and impresses us as definitively as its predecessor.
  14. The series somehow still lacks tension as the narcs go from one bust to the next interrogating perps who all say the same thing: "I don't know anything."
  15. The silly, very romantic movie pretends to tell the whole truth about the meeting, mating, splitting and reconnecting of Kate and William.
  16. The show is not as good as Woods makes it, but not as bad as some of the new shows.
  17. This new series [is] often very good and just as often very dull.
  18. Siberia can be pretty annoying with the shaky single-camera and fake reality premise and all--but then it picks up in the last ten minutes when things go horribly wrong and the best character in the bunch gets killed off.
  19. Suspend disbelief and you’ll have fun, but believe and you’re in trouble.
  20. When Vinny is one-on-one with his guests, as he says at the opening, he isn’t Jay Leno. But he is pretty funny.
  21. "E-Ring" is sometimes kind of silly, sometimes tightly drawn, and sometimes it's fun.
  22. Combine[s] the tension of the boardroom in "The Apprentice," the machinations of "Survivor," the tears of a Dr. Phil cry-athon, and the tonnage of a Weight Watchers meeting. [20 Oct 2004]

  23. How to Get Away with Murder is no “Good Wife” in the sophistication (or writing) departments, and when key turning points in the case involve witnesses who are color blind, you just want to Skype with Jessica Fletcher from “Murder, She Wrote” to wrap this one up.
  24. A mushy, messy, medical melodrama that's pretty much identical to a dozen other doctor dramas you've seen many times before.
  25. 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.
  26. Barr is suitably creepy as Chris and McCormack--while slightly miscast--turns in a solid performance. For true-crime buffs only.
  27. Despite the show's flaws--each of the first two episodes ends in an "ironic reveal" that is really just a ridiculous coincidence--its central character could be fascinating if played by, say, 1971 Brando. Duchovny gives off the heat of 2007 Brando.
  28. 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.
  29. It seems to have been boiled down to its simplest ingredients.
  30. It’s well-shot, professionally acted and adequately paced--but, at least to me, it’s missing that spark of originality that will keep viewers coming back week after week.
