  1. The Jim Gaffigan Show isn't cutting edge or hilarious. It doesn't make us cringe in embarrassment. It's just cute, and sometimes, that's enjoyable enough.
  2. Limitless isn't bad, but it's not mind-expanding.
  3. The pleasantly fresh setting is the North Dakota oil boom, but the tone is very "Dallas," and the storytelling is as melodramatic as the show's title.
  4. Science-fiction meets crime-solving buddy drama in an extension of the 2002 movie.
  5. The movie doesn't always take itself seriously. ... But with its dual messages of "hold your families close" and "always be kind," Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love is ultimately as sweet as the Whitman's Sampler the Parton kids get to dive into.
  6. Steinberg promises that Black Sails, with no parrots and no peg legs, will be pirate-cliché free. Unfortunately, the female characters don’t escape sexist stereotypes. And that keeps Black Sails from being as much fun as it might have been.
  7. This is a cartoonish Army, under orders to take pratfalls whenever possible. You'll laugh. Or you won't.
  8. Based solely on the premiere, American Horror Story: Freak Show might rate a rave, or at least a "great if you like this sort of thing." But since the first season, I've learned that Murphy and Falchuk don't reliably follow the path they start down, often seeming to prefer to gross viewers out than tell a coherent story.
