  1. When Thandie Newton is on screen in Rogue, it's tough to look away.... Other than Newton, though, Rogue is a disappointment in the early going, more tedious than thrilling.
  2. It’s best simply to sit back and go with it.
  3. Thanks to the clever writing and a very appealing performance by Gummer, this is one of my favorites of the fall season.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. The Dovekeepers is beautifully written and acted, without a whiff of the hokey melodrama so unfortunately common in period pieces, especially those with biblical themes.
  7. I suspect that viewers who know the Bible well will be annoyed by "The Bible," while those who are casual students will be alternately mildly entertained and fairly bored. People with no religious beliefs probably won't watch anyway, but if they do, they could wind up confused or amused.
  8. The dialogue Arquette is forced to deliver is the worst thing.
  9. They are quirky--cookie-cutter quirky. But for summer TV drama, that's not the worst they could be.
  10. This is, hands down, the worst series of the year, with the most annoying lead character in a season with many annoying lead characters.
  11. 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.
  12. Unfortunately, beyond the strained concept, it has ridiculous dialogue and ludicrous situations that the best actors in the world couldn't salvage.
  13. This Odd Couple, starring Matthew Perry as messy Oscar Madison and Thomas Lennon as fastidious Felix Unger, just feels forced, tired and not funny enough.
  14. 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.
  15. All this suggests a by-the-numbers romance novel, but some romance novels are involving, or fun, or lively. Not Mistresses.
  16. The first episode does explain the premise pretty clearly--if you pay close enough attention and aren't laughing too hard.
  17. Uneven, from amusing to embarrassing. [8 Oct 2000, p.F6]

  18. It's not terrible, just standard-issue sitcom, with relationships that don't feel true and laughs that seem forced.
  19. Relaxed as he seems on stage, he's just that stiff when acting. And that, unfortunately, is most of the time.
  20. Do No Harm expects us to accept the dual-personality premise without grounding it in anything believable.
  21. One Big Happy isn't fresh or funny enough to transcend its message.
  22. The most puzzling thing about Are You There, Chelsea? is who exactly thought it was a good idea. Because it's not.
  23. There's a plot, which any of us could have written in our sleep.
  24. Run! Run fast and far from We Are Men.
  25. It's ridiculous, but it doesn't bite.
  26. Enjoying Timecop either requires putting your mind entirely into neutral or simply deciding to suspend a lot of disbelief. I couldn't suspend enough, so I wound up worrying about little things like why the folks of Victorian London, which he visits in tonight's opener, don't think Logan's spiky 1997 haircut is one bit peculiar. [22 Sept 1997]

  27. Even more obnoxious, although that hardly seems possible, is NBC's Hidden Hills, a crude and unfunny comedy about suburban families. [24 Sept 2002, p.E8]
    • St. Louis Post-Dispatch
  28. Rob is a scream, and not in a good way.
  29. A cruel and stupid show built around one Matt Hicks, who vaguely resembles Britain's Prince Harry.
  30. Save yourself. Run from Stalker.
