    A terrifically cast, intriguing series.
  2. 80
    The show's intricate plotting and finely rendered characters will engage your brain, but there's plenty of below-the-shoulders action, too.
  3. A slick and earnest soap about rival families in South Florida.
  4. Notwithstanding the novelty of the setting, the nice Latin music and good individual work by the cast--Walker is especially notable in a role made to notice--Smits is the engine that drives the ship; he gives Cane at least an illusion of speed and substance and soul.
  5. It presents a mouthwatering cast and a tasty premise, then fails to generate a succulent premiere.
  6. Manichaean characters work on soap operas as long as they come with plenty of machinations. Unfortunately, there are no J. R.’s in sight on Cane, and the one Samuels with Alexis Carrington potential, Ellis, is played by a surprisingly subdued Polly Walker.
  7. 20
    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.

    Terrific casting. Nice to see a Spanish cast and plausible storyline. Tuesday nights are now alive.

    This show sucks. I got a preview. We need Nestor Carbonell back on "Lost".
