  1. [It] looks like Sex and the City relocated to Northern Exposure. [18 Sep 2006, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  2. Mostly it feels like an instructional film about disaster preparedness. [2 Oct 2006, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  3. Only Visnjic, immaculately groomed and vaguely continental, seems to understand that this over-the-top story requires not only a constant flame to boil the plot but a flirtatious sense of fun. [11 Mar 2013, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  4. Every so often, Alley extracts a solid laugh from an unexceptional joke. [9 Dec 2013, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  5. It's like a David Mamet parody of Roseanne. [19 Jun 2006, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  6. The show is cleverer than you'd expect. [20 Aug 2012, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  7. The characters are too uneven a group: Some of them you instantly overlook, like the olive in a cocktail. Even so, thus has potential. [3 Mar 2014, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  8. It's only fun, though, when the would-be mates turn on each other and the bat guano flies: Romancing the Stone morph into The War of the roses. [25 Jul 2011, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  9. Chalke and company are all expert comic actors, but the pilot is leapingly frantic, a puppy wanting love. [8 Apr 2013, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  10. Kathy Bates' surly gravity can't prevail over the silliness of this new series. [24 Jan 2010, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  11. This is advertising with a side of bruthah (and muthah)-ly love. [10 Feb 2014, p.50]
    • People Weekly
  12. Saddled with stars who neither clash nor click, breaking In appears to be broken. [19 Mar 2012, p.46]
    • People Weekly
  13. The banter is warm and fast and easy, and the sisters' personality types balance out well. [17 Oct 2005, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  14. Brosnan remains totally believable whether he's borderline batty or bravely resilient. [19 Dec 2011, p.44]
    • People Weekly
  15. Thandie Newton is intimidatingly fierce.... The problem is everyone else. [8 Apr 2013, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  16. Ragsdale has vigor, and the office scenes, featuring Jason Bernard, Yeardley Smith, Jane Sibbett and Hank Azaria, work moderately well without the intrusion of the barbershop quartet in his cerebellum. That gimmick, however, makes the show unbearably contrived.
  17. Makes a nice first impression but quickly wears out its welcome.
  18. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Child is one miserable half-hour. [27 Aug 2012, p.44]
    • People Weekly
  19. It's like watching someone try to flirt while stuck in a revolving door. But Gummer has a whirring charm that never settles for mere adorkability. [22 Oct 2012m p.42]
    • People Weekly
  20. It's a well-made hour of generic moments. [15 Apr 2013, p.44]
    • People Weekly
  21. It's Jersey Shore toned up as an Abercrombie & Fitch campaign. [12 Aug 2013]
    • People Weekly
  22. It's awkward, sweet, sincere--and sometimes yawningly dull. [6 Aug 2012, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  23. Welcome to the family is nicely cast.... [But it] needs to punch up the writing. [28 Oct 2013, p.47]
    • People Weekly
  24. Though [Ramsay's] bleep-filled rants are supposed to bring out the best in his staff, they seem like blatant workplace harassment. When he turns his ire on the customers, it's even harder to stomach.
  25. Gina Gershon's performance as designer Donatella Versace is fabulously strange. [7 Oct 2013, p.49]
    • People Weekly
  26. Outsourced really needs to move beyond this sort of broad stupidity because its cast, notably Sacha Dhawan, is actually quite good. [27 Sep 2010, p.56]
    • People Weekly
  27. This family sitcom, adapted from Ice Cube's hit 2005 movie, is a modestly conceived, somewhat blandly executed story about a stepdad (Terry Crews from Everybody Hates Chris), his new wife (Essence Atkins) and her two kids. [7 Jun 2010, p.50]
    • People Weekly
  28. Just about perfect in its way--always fun, well-paced--and much, much better than UPN's failed models drama South Beach. [1 May 2006, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  29. It's still not funny. [23 Jan 2012, p.42]
    • People Weekly
  30. Murray is more interesting here than in last season's laughable The Lone Ranger, but the writing... is junior-varsity stuff.
