  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 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.
  3. The addition of Chicago native Hudson is a masterstroke, but with all that other melodrama, Smash remains a hit-or-miss proposition for me.
  4. The HBO special comes off more as another managed attempt to forge the legend of Queen B.
  5. 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.
  6. Despite its historic gravitas and scrupulous attention to period detail, Spies of Warsaw never really ignites.
  7. In seriously exploring what drives people to kill, Hannibal serves up a meal too heavy to enjoy each week.
  8. 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.
  9. Both believable and appealing as the hard-bitten homicide investigator, Lehman provides the only real motive for tuning in.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Unlike "Archer" or "Sunny" or FX's "The League" and "Wilfred," Unsupervised refuses to go for the throat. And that makes it unfunny.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. [King & Maxwell] will live and die on the casting--because everything else about it feels as stale and standard as week-old white bread.
  16. As an exercise in recreating a noir drama, Mob City has all the trappings we've seen better in "L.A. Confidential" and other projects, but little of the thrill.
  17. 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.
  18. The Glee Project feels like an exercise in ego for the folks running the show. There's a whole lot of playing to the camera going on amongst the professionals, especially from choreographer Zach Woodlee and Murphy himself.
  19. All in all, A Royal Romance offers some OK acting of a dull story.
  20. The office gang from Free Agents is anything but funny.
  21. Charlie's Angels is as absurd as the original 1976-81 series that launched the careers of Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson and Farrah Fawcett (and her hair).
  22. Sad to say, another round of Black Friday madness would deliver more laughs than this brainless new sitcom.
  23. Everything feels like a put-on; nothing seems plausible.
  24. Watch it to laugh, and you'll have a lot of fun.
  25. Seems to me she's [Alana's mother June is] desperate to stay in the spotlight. And all I can say to that is, "Honey, bye-bye."
  26. Liz & Dick is, simply, a joke.
  27. [A] stinker of a family sitcom.

    The show had all of the potential of "Idol," but Fox blew it by forgetting these words of wisdom: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. [15 Aug 2005]
  28. Nothing has really changed.
