  1. 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.
  2. It's not only laugh-out-loud-until-soda-squirts-out-of-your-nose funny, but it's also perfectly cast.
  3. "My Boys" is no improv comedy, but it also relies on unnecessary narration.
  4. It's one heckuva fascinating look into a world and a culture with which most of us have little or no experience.
  5. The authentic New York locales and voices really make this new half-hour dramedy fly.
  6. Not like anything else on TV.
  7. Ringer, it turns out, is so good that it's CBS' bad.
  8. 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.
  9. It never rises above the mediocre level, although it certainly sinks below it occasionally. [3 Jan 2005]

  10. A new, trite and pretty awful scripted formulaic cop show.
  11. I like the locale a lot. Heading up the forensics team is Gil Grissom (William Petersen), who is appealing mostly because, like James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano, he doesn't look like he belongs on TV. [6 Oct 2000, p.117]

  12. Unfortunately, lightweight Bower (more Dude Arthur than King Arthur) and an even lighter-weight Egerton can't carry a series, let alone a kingdom. Nonetheless, it's still lots of lush, plush, silly good fun.
  13. The unwavering, insistent sincerity of Signed, Sealed, and its tearjerking final acts, are hard to resist, despite often being served up in greeting-card platitudes.
  14. 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.
  15. Bizarrely complicated and intriguing.
  16. The silly, very romantic movie pretends to tell the whole truth about the meeting, mating, splitting and reconnecting of Kate and William.
  17. It doesn’t feel like a comedy - because it’s not funny. [3 June 2005, p.3]

  18. The writing is still good.
  19. In its favor, Parks doesn't have a laugh track. On the minus side, it doesn't get many laughs.
  20. [Octavia Spencer is] cast as the one-note, wise-cracking Nurse Jackson--who works alongside Dr. Jack McAndrew (David Annable)--her talents are largely wasted in a role that’s seriously underwritten.... The feelgood message of this show is so relentlessly upbeat--like the music that nearly drowns out every scene.
  21. Grace and Frankie strains very hard for laughter of any sort.
  22. 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.
  23. I liked it, but I'm still not sure why.
  24. The show is a lot of fun. Like playing dress-up when you were a kid--and about as realistic.
  25. Back to You is no brains.
  26. The show sparkles with imagination. But Kings may be too campy for some, not campy enough for others.
  27. Not the greatest dinosaur, er Discovery, but it's a respite from the endless 9/11 coverage that will dominate next week's fare.
  28. Happy Endings, which sounds like the special at a cheap massage parlor, is so funny I heard a noise I haven't heard in a very long time while watching a sitcom: the sound of me yelping so loudly it could frighten dogs.
  29. The scripts are nearly line-for-line copies of the Brit version. But the scenes are over the top, the kids are too good-looking and seem to have spent too much time at acting camp.
  30. The band is gold as far as kiddie parties go, but more like copper on the after-dark circuit. The same can be said for the concept vs. the execution here.
