    Big Shots is an extremely unflattering showcase for these actors, particularly McDermott, whose overacting as the show’s bad boy puts the mug in smug.

    The problem with Big Shots is that the men don't sound like anyone at all, male or female.
  3. The worst offense is that it seems to have been pitched as the male version of you-know-what without any real interest in speaking to the notion of what it means to be a man or, if you'd like, what men think, feel and say.
  4. Big Shots, an obnoxious waste of time that's likely the season's worst new show.
  5. I'd prefer you'd forget that one, and in coming years, I'll bet stars Dylan McDermott, Christopher Titus and Michael Vartan will hope to forget it, too. It's not worth your time or theirs.
  6. Feldman has created a quartet of rich guys so insufferable, self-centered and whiny that they make the men of feminist masterwork "The Golden Notebook," or even "The Nanny Diaries," look positively heroic.
  7. There's nothing funny about tonight's Big Shots.

    No matter where the goofy "Desperate Housewives" goes, it's not into the toilet, which is where Big Shots spends its time both literally and figuratively.
  9. When all is said and done, the series feels less like Wisteria Lane than "Stand By Me" channeled through Danielle Steel.
  10. We're all for handsome guys exploring their feminine side, but we want posters of them holding babies, not being them.

    It suffers from too much gloom and glam.

    LOVE IT, laugh out loud every time. How can this be canceled? Maybe I miss the ridiculousness of "you know what and the city" but it is funny LOVE IT, laugh out loud every time. How can this be canceled? Maybe I miss the ridiculousness of "you know what and the city" but it is funny to see the true colors of the other species and what they try to get away with, at the same time a sliver of their "obstacle" of meaningful relationships.
