  1. 80
    Besides its surefire pacing and startling moments, "Invasion" features a promising cast.
  2. 70
    [It has] a tick-tick-tick pace almost as intense as that of 24.
  3. 63
    "E-Ring" is sometimes kind of silly, sometimes tightly drawn, and sometimes it's fun.
  4. 30
    Unfortunately, despite an interesting pair of lead actors, ''E-Ring" is stubbornly conventional and bland.
  5. The unarguable truth of E-Ring's central premise -- that America's national-security bureaucracy probably spends as much time in intramural squabbles as it does fighting terrorism or rogue states -- does not make it any better drama.
  6. [A] surprisingly brain-dead series.

    Seriously...this is the best show ever. If you like to enjoy tv and not be a critic, you will be overwhelmed with joy with each show. Anyway, critics have no idea what they are talking about...this show dominates and I am in love. Expand

    Last Season we only watched E-Ring and Commander. With them removed we will not watch any prime time programming. WHAT A SHAME

    I'm REALLY ticked at NBC for putting this show on hiatus. That's reduced my weekly 3-4 hrs. of viewing NBC by 1 hour. I don't watch the garbage that's in it's place. Expand

    I didn't think it was possible to come up with a more seriously stupid series then JAG but then again I've been wrong before. Each successively more juvenile episode shows what's wrong really wrong with American television. From the casting (Benjamin Bratt and Dennis Hopper?) to the silly and juvenile dialogue and scripting E Ring offers no hope of a saving grace. I hate to admit I have actually watched three consecutive episodes. The first because as career military I was captivated by the premise and the pre-hype, the second since even something this poor deserves a second chance to correct itself and the third for the same reason eyes are drawn to a horrendous accident. The only saving grace for this program would be a swift death. Benjamin Bratt is a much better actor then this, he should be ashamed to have his name associated with E Ring. Expand
