  1. While Prosecuting Casey Anthony does a decent job of re-creating the trial and media frenzy surrounding it, it fails to offer theories as to why the jury didn't convict her of murder.
  2. The only thing that separates this bland cop drama from others is that Gloria is also a divorced single mom with two kids who lives with her recovering drug abuser but looks-good-in-a-towel brother (Chris Payne Gilbert).
  3. Tonally, it's all over the place.
  4. The show still feels like it's coasting off the success of those super-charged early seasons.
  5. Both believable and appealing as the hard-bitten homicide investigator, Lehman provides the only real motive for tuning in.
  6. Despite fine acting from Cumberbatch and especially Hall and rare moments of comic relief, this adaptation of Ford Madox Ford's novels feels heavy and suffocating.
  7. Despite its historic gravitas and scrupulous attention to period detail, Spies of Warsaw never really ignites.
  8. The addition of Chicago native Hudson is a masterstroke, but with all that other melodrama, Smash remains a hit-or-miss proposition for me.
  9. The M&Ms are brutal and might have set Monday Mornings apart as a psychological examination of regret and human error. But in the three episodes sent for review, producers David E. Kelley and CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta (adapting this from his 2012 novel) instead overdose on the same sappy storylines we've seen before.

    "Law & Order" mastermind Dick Wolf doesn't blaze any new trails with his latest effort, but at least he's getting out of the courtroom and precinct house.
  10. OK, so I'm having a real problem with the idea that Bridget could get away with this switch for even one second. If you can look past that, you'll still have to deal with a story so dense it takes a couple long expositional scenes to explain it all.
  11. BFF uses the most obvious male-female cliches.
  12. Sounds promising, but the premiere falls flat.
  13. If the writers relax their death grip on that formula and Handler stops choking the proceedings, Are You There, Chelsea? might be worth another look.
  14. The movie holds these men and women up as heroes, but it makes them rather bland cardboard cutouts.
  15. Johnston, Faison, Knight and Basche have their moments, but more often than not they hammer the jokes home, mugging insufferably as they do so.
  16. Not only is the production harmed by its overloaded pilot and just fleeting moments of originality, its visual effects and alien makeup design are wildly inconsistent. Despite all this, Defiance grew on me the more I watched.
  17. The HBO special comes off more as another managed attempt to forge the legend of Queen B.
  18. A show about a hot gay couple who are both cops would have been a lot more interesting than the umpteenth light police procedural USA has delivered.
  19. I get the feeling Grace will always do the right thing, which is going to make The Mob Doctor predictable and not all that entertaining.
  20. In seriously exploring what drives people to kill, Hannibal serves up a meal too heavy to enjoy each week.
  21. By pulling the curtain back on the magic of Neverland, Willing has stripped all the fun from a marvelous classic.
  22. Get on The Client List only to see some ripped abs; everything else is nonsense.
  23. Reign isn't half bad at times with its marvelous costumes, palace intrigues and Follows' delicious take on Catherine. But the minute you start getting into fantasy, you're yanked right out by the contemporary music and other oddities—like a montage of giggling gals putting on makeup.
  24. True Blood still entertains with crackling dialogue and about half its plotlines, but it's starting to feel a little long in the fang.

    The premise is fascinating enough to keep viewers' attention, if only to see what numbers Charlie will spin next. But some kinks need to be worked out before "Numb3rs" will add up.
  25. Unlike "Archer" or "Sunny" or FX's "The League" and "Wilfred," Unsupervised refuses to go for the throat. And that makes it unfunny.
  26. You're likely to understand Fox's hesitation with The Goodwin Games after seeing the premiere, which introduces the characters and the premise, but with only a few laughs.
  27. Much of the writing here is dreadful; scenes go nowhere while thinly developed characters pop in and out of the action--although there is little action early on.
  28. Chozen will get more compelling once it focuses on that feud over loutish buffoonery and references to prison sex--which aren't that funny even the first five times they're made. For now, though, it simply mines the gay rapper premise for cheap laughs.
