  1. Relentlessly grimy and brutally violent, Outsiders is an exhausting trek through mountain muck.
  2. Moody and bloody, directed ridiculously by Melanie Aitkenhead, it's a reanimated corpse of a movie that nobody needed.
  3. The writing is cliched, the characters cartoonish and the action tedious, punctured by bloodshed.
  4. A cruel and stupid show built around one Matt Hicks, who vaguely resembles Britain's Prince Harry.
  5. 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.
  6. The plotting is goofy, the tone is relentlessly dark and the pacing is excruciatingly slow. Worst, the characters are hard to care about.
  7. The plot is ridiculous, the writing is bad and Atwell seems embarrassed to be there.
  8. The script is assembled from cliches, some so hokey the actors seem to have trouble keeping straight faces. The plot rarely holds together, and the technology is more new age (a real-life "Vulcan mind meld"?) than cutting age. Worst of all, both Prew and Mulroney are horribly miscast, and neither is a satisfactory entry point into the drama.
  9. Save yourself. Run from Stalker.
  10. All this suggests a by-the-numbers romance novel, but some romance novels are involving, or fun, or lively. Not Mistresses.
  11. Jane Lynch is, to put it kindly, unbearable. (Trust me; that was putting it kindly.)
  12. Black people and white people can be best friends, and that's the truth. Apparently, however, that friendship can't be funny, or so Truth Be Told easily convinces us.
  13. Well, nothing much happens. Danny is a good excuse for a nap. [27 Sept 2001, p.F1]

  14. By the time the show ended, I disliked it a lot, but I kept an open mind. ... I watched it a second time. And a third time. I now believe I can praise Bochco and ABC for trying to do something different and, at the same time, say that "Cop Rock" is a bomb of major proportions. [17 Sep 1990, p.1D]

  15. Run! Run fast and far from We Are Men.
  16. 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]

  17. This is, hands down, the worst series of the year, with the most annoying lead character in a season with many annoying lead characters.
  18. The worst of the new season's sitcom crop, Tucker is crude, unfunny and mean-spirited. The only appropriate response is an urge to call child services and have the young star taken into custody. [2 Oct 2000, p.F1]

  19. Dads is so unfunny that we have plenty of time to contemplate how distasteful the show really is.
