  1. In short, tight, low-cut everything, with her talents always on prominent display, Cox appears so much older than the baby-faced Von Esmarch that their relationship looks perverted, if not illegal. [8 Oct 2000, p.F6]

  2. The writing is clunky, Phillippe is stiff and Lewis overacts like a cop in some parody of cop shows.
  3. Zoo has 13 hours, and many more animals, to make some sense of its zany story, but the leaden dialogue is almost certainly to make that seem much, much longer.
  4. The dialogue Arquette is forced to deliver is the worst thing.
  5. What Chasing Life mainly raises, though, is eyebrows, for being so laughably bad.
  6. A grim and goofy sci-fi saga.
  7. One Big Happy isn't fresh or funny enough to transcend its message.
  8. The lead characters for whom we're supposed to root in Manhattan Love Story feel as slapped together as people stranded at a speed-dating event.
  9. The series itself turns out to be less "candid and comic" (as HBO puts it) than tired and tacky. [4 June 1998, p.G6]

  10. It's all too cringe-worthy, even as Wilson goes all out to show us that she's happy the joke's on her. Even if you applaud her for that, Super Fun Night is not funny enough to be so sad.
  11. Knepper is wonderfully creepy. But that's the last of the good news. From Rockne S. O'Bannon, Cult is too complicated for its own good, and not satisfying enough to make it worth figuring out.
  12. This American version incorporates the redneck humor so beloved in reality TV these days with battle-of-the-sexes cliches that should have been retired in the '70s.
  13. Relaxed as he seems on stage, he's just that stiff when acting. And that, unfortunately, is most of the time.
  14. Sheen and Bruce Helford ("The Drew Carey Show") have conspired here to create a show completely free of ambition to be anything except a showcase for Charlie Sheen.
  15. Rob is a scream, and not in a good way.
  16. The most puzzling thing about Are You There, Chelsea? is who exactly thought it was a good idea. Because it's not.
  17. Unfortunately, beyond the strained concept, it has ridiculous dialogue and ludicrous situations that the best actors in the world couldn't salvage.
  18. The Sharknado 3 team is clearly just making up the most ridiculous stuff possible at this point.
  19. Morris Chestnut is pretty, and so is Miami, but this show wastes them both.
  20. Phillip Winchester gets tangled up with Wesley Snipes in Las Vegas in a muddled scenario that involves predicting crimes and seeking vengeance.
  21. Its problem is too much Ken Jeong. His manic energy takes over every frame of the pilot, at the expense of anything and anyone else in the show.
  22. One of the new season's bigger disappointments. The frantic pace of this action drama, set behind the scenes in a casino security firm, can't disguise the shallow story-telling and annoying, badly developed characters. James Caan is wasted as the boss, and Josh Duhamel got much better stuff to work with on "All My Children." [22 Sept 2003, p.E6]

  23. Killing Jesus is apparently satisfied to look and sound vaguely cheesy.
  24. All the characters lie on the couch a lot. While it's noted that they do have jobs, they seem to spend most of their time eating Oreos and watching TV. (Hey, that's my life. . . .) And they talk, but most of what they have to say isn't very funny. [22 Sept 1994, p.6G]

  25. The writing is cliched, the characters cartoonish and the action tedious, punctured by bloodshed.
  26. A cruel and stupid show built around one Matt Hicks, who vaguely resembles Britain's Prince Harry.
  27. If you're in the Sharknado fan club, you'll probably like the sequel. If not, you'll probably ignore it and watch something else. In either case, enjoy.
  28. Save yourself. Run from Stalker.
  29. All this suggests a by-the-numbers romance novel, but some romance novels are involving, or fun, or lively. Not Mistresses.
  30. Jane Lynch is, to put it kindly, unbearable. (Trust me; that was putting it kindly.)
