  1. It's written like a dopey daytime soap, it basically makes no sense, but it sure is silly good fun.
  2. Terrific special effects (except for the giant supermodel in the sky), good action, good acting, and, if they let them, the Visitors could probably put on a helluva good runway show, too!
  3. The makeover has helped morph the series from unwatchable and unfunny into a witty sitcom about people who are desperate not to turn into TV sitcom parents.
  4. If the writers can stop laying it on so thick, maybe Walsh will find her way into the role and Bad Judge will have a better shot at entertaining and shocking us.
  5. Clearly they've studied both movies and can mimic the moves, but they just don't hear the music.
  6. It’s more fun hanging out with some of the other girls.... More of them please--and less of the Hannah and Adam show.
  7. Conan O'Brien's new show, Conan, finally debuted on TBS last night after months of hype--looking pretty much like his two former shows, "Late Night" and "The Tonight Show."
  8. After a while it starts to feel a bit like “The Wonder Years,” with Baker in the role played by Fred Savage and Bateman as that show’s unseen narrator Daniel Stern, commenting sagely on how Mel and Joyce’s divorce has brought the family closer together in so many different ways. Still, Growing Up Fisher has potential, and Simmons tackles his role with good-natured authority, without descending into glibness.
  9. It ain’t brain surgery and nobody’s going to win any Emmys, but that’s not why fans watch Hallmark.
  10. 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.
  11. [Final Witness is] a very good true-crime show. But that voice-from-beyond narrator is just so very wrong.
  12. 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]

  13. It's a good kid show, but frankly, as an adult I'll lose interest faster than it took these kids to make gourmet biscuits and grits.
  14. When the show returns Sunday night, it's all business and not much pleasure for the Henrickson clan--and, in some ways, for us viewers, as well.
  15. If you're a fan of "Russian Dolls," you may enjoy taking a walk on the not-wild side with these all-American Muslims.
  16. This lukewarm hybrid should have been much better than it is.
  17. Hannibal was lauded last season for its stylized look, which is on display here. Fishburne, as usual, is solid, and I like Dancy’s interpretation of Graham (just the right amount of despair without descending into self-pity).
  18. Maybe Legends will get better, but if TNT expects Bean to carry this show, they’re going to have to give him better villains and better back-up support.
  19. Capture is enjoyable in a “Hunger Games” sort of way--although instead of losers getting killed, they get thrown off.
  20. Some of it is quite funny and so are the situations in which these four characters find themselves.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. The biggest question you'll be left with after tonight's premiere is a big, fat "why?"
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
  26. 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.
  27. 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.
  28. 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.
  29. Alphas is fun, sure, but it has a "been there, done that" feel.
  30. 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.
