  1. This would be hilarious, except that political talk TV has become such a parody of itself that watching them is more than enough comedy for anybody.
  2. The person who steals every scene is Brett Butler as the sister-in-law.
  3. Not that it's not a nice show, but it is precisely the kind of production for which the word "corny" was probably coined.
  4. Since the show stars all these great TV actors... the show sustains some laughs that it wouldn't otherwise be able to wring out of bad material.
  5. It is overlong, contrived and utterly out of place on UPN. It plays like something left over that the network needs to discard before going out of business.
  6. Portions of "Free Ride" show promise, due mainly to the show's star -- Dean -- whose character remains grounded and sane, against all odds.
  7. Interesting take on the biblical story, but if you prefer your Moses as a nicer guy, may I suggest you skip tonight and tomorrow night's new epic and wait for the real Moses, Charlton Heston
  8. It's a good thing reality TV has nothing to do with real life.
  9. The format is so complicated and the contestants so unappealing that the show misses the mark.
  10. The format is what carries the day.
  11. The writing is so bad that, I promise, you will sit there mouth agape.
  12. Both soaps are perfectly awful on almost every level, which makes them nothing, if not, well, hilariously perfect soap scum.
  13. There's a nice idea in there somewhere. Now, if CBS and the show's producers can get together on changing most of it, they might have something.
  14. This show could use some brain surgery itself.
  15. "My Boys" is no improv comedy, but it also relies on unnecessary narration.
  16. This is not to say that vapid and ruthless can't work on TV (think "Nip/Tuck"). But vapid and ruthless has to be redeemed by ridiculous and funny.
  17. The series has great potential, and frankly I can't tell you why it doesn't ever quite reach it - other than it somehow lacks, er, magic.
  18. Wake me when it's over - please.
  19. While "Studio 60" is/was an annoying, insidery and smug series about the inside doings of the annoyingly smug cast of a "Saturday Night Live-ish" show, "Donnellys" is the annoying, insidery and smug series about the doings of the Donnelly brothers, low-level thugs in Hell's Kitchen in New York City.
  20. The acting's good and the actors are good-looking. But, really, wouldn't you expect something more cohesive from the folks who brought you "American Beauty?"
  21. The ensemble company, including the always-wonderful Laura San Giacomo, who plays her friend, never misses a beat. Too bad this series--which tries too hard--misses a stanza or two.
  22. Gunn is fine in limited doses. I like him better as a design guru than the closet king.
  23. After a few minutes, it becomes clear that this is yet another formulaic cop drama off the "Lethal Weapon" template.
  24. Terrific cast, some fun, but overall the writing is often as dead as Walter.
  25. The characters are likeable enough so that you might even grow to care about them--and the show--in this arid writers' strike environment.
  26. It's all a bit ridiculous and the writing is scary, although the stars are first rate and the locales are pretty good too.
  27. Swingtown could have been great. Instead it's a hit-you-over-the-head production--with product placement and wardrobe so obvious it begs us to scream, "That's so authentic!"--best forgotten.
  28. The best part of this show is the acting, which is generally excellent - particularly that of Hugh Dillon as Ed Lane, the conscience-riddled sharpshooter. Too bad the writing isn't as on-target as Lane's high-powered automatic.
  29. This brings up the writing, which is strictly discount--and so are the plots, which don't tell us enough in the victims he saves.
  30. It's like watching a drag show--you know, when you're supposed to laugh because we're conditioned to laugh on cue. But in reality, it's forced, er, gaiety.
