    It's sleek and mildly epic-looking. But qualitywise, I'm wondering where the storyline is going other than just the soapy family fights.
  2. You'd expect Cane to follow in the tradition of "Dallas" by giving viewers a potboiler to look forward to each week, but there are too many subplots knotted together in the opening episode, and none of them is particularly interesting.
  3. The first hour’s writing, pacing and storylines were too pedestrian for me to recommend Cane.

    One of those slack, campy throwbacks that really ought to be thrown out, Cane, premiering on CBS tonight at 10, tries to bring grand-opera soap opera back to prime time and ignominiously fails.
