  1. We must caution you that this all sounds sexier, funnier and more savage than it is.
  2. The show, yet another "reality" show starring a bunch of rich people who supposedly spend all their time together, partying, fake arguing and creating drama out of nothing, is so dull, it makes "Russian Dolls" look exciting.
  3. The fact the mystery is pretty much laid out like a coma patient from the beginning, ruins whatever suspense you might otherwise have built up.
  4. In place of dialogue, we get one-liners.
  5. The second episode is 30 percent better than the first. Maybe by episode six, it will actually be watchable.
  6. The ensemble cast here is flat and one-dimensional--somewhat surprising, since John Masius ("St. Elsewhere") is one of the show's executive producers.
  7. The executive producers of this series are David Mamet and Shawn Ryan, but it has none of the panache of Mamet's plays and movies such as "Glengarry Glen Ross" or "The Spanish Prisoner," and none of the blunt force of Ryan's best-known work, "The Shield" on FX.
  8. This show is so cliched that it actually contains one of those scenes in which a camera makes a slow, 360-degree circle around Jaime as she gazes skyward.
  9. A new, trite and pretty awful scripted formulaic cop show.
  10. HBO's new series from death-obsessed Alan Ball, creator of the legendary "Six Feet Under," whose new show True Blood, won't so much make your blood run cold as it will leave you cold.
  11. Moonlight, unfortunately, doesn't trust its audience and so falls to exposition via a fake talk-show interview at the beginning, and then throughout with dialogue dully delivered by Internet investigative reporter Beth Turner (Sophia Myles).
  12. The end result of all that effort, however, is a miniseries that's as dull and throbbing as a severe headache.
  13. The real-life Village locale (in Nambia) is fascinating and McKellen is great, as always--but Caviezel and the rest just grimace a lot and make you want to get-the-hell outta town.
  14. A bad morph-job of "Seinfeld" and "Friends" but without the simplicity of the first, the chemistry of the second or the brilliance, timing, and writing of either.
  15. In the CW's world, happiness is rubbing elbows with the rich and fabulous, and drawing the attention of various rich boys, while a soundtrack of chick-friendly pop tunes plays constantly in the background. If this sounds like happiness to you, then by all means feel free to join this "Privileged" class. You have nothing to waste but your time.
  16. Like this movie, most of the passengers in "Mayday" are dead on arrival.
  17. They tried for the tried and true, hoping they'd get "The Sopranos" meets "Grey's Anatomy" while filling the hole "House" left in the schedule. And, like a camel, they ended up with an animal made by committee.
  18. Dangerman is packed with more danger than you could ever have hoped for. And that’s the problem. Too many stunts, too tightly packed together, and none of it live.
  19. It's a format that just doesn't mesh with a laughtrack -- and when there's nothing particularly funny about what we're watching, it smacks of desperation.
  20. If Freddy Krueger married Regan from "The Exorcist," and they moved to "Shutter Island" with "Agnes of God" on "Friday the 13th," they'd all end up in this Asylum.
  21. The sitcom is cookie-cutter and one-dimensional--with thinly written characters and, most notably, a hyperactive laugh track that’s really grating.
  22. It’s not funny.
  23. What's good here is the acting, and some of the story lines (the model who thinks she's not perfect enough, for example). But they are overshadowed by over-the-top gory surgeries and preposterous situations...It's like "Miami Vice" - with a huge number of close-ups and a lot of ceiling fan action - but it's a lot bloodier. But hey - next time I want to see a butt reduction or an exploding, fat-spewing lipo-scution tube, I know just where to turn.

    Shame We Are Men is so off-putting, because the cast is generally likeable, especially Penn.
  24. Better Lives lacks the ensemble chemistry and clever writing of “HIMYM,” and seems content to rely on a non-stop barrage of sophomoric sex jokes and double entendres.
  25. A witless collection of offensive anti-Catholic cliches, the new ABC series takes a talented cast and saddles it with some of the worst material in ages.
  26. Ain’t much [Collette] can’t do, so when she temporarily foils Carlisle, we have a pretty good idea who’s going to keep the tables turned on this show.
  27. The only fear engendered by this series is the fear that the NBC programming department has been possessed by Satan.
  28. Daniel Henney is the new handsomest man on TV and it's a pleasure to watch him walk the halls in scrubs. But even he can't make me believe what Three Rivers is selling. For that, I'd need a brain transplant.
  29. In some way or another, this show is trying to be "Everwood," "Dawson's Creek," "Eight Mile" and "Hoosiers" all rolled into one. It would be a whole lot more accessible if it would just try to be One Tree Hill, whatever that is. [23 Sept 2003, p.79]
