    The best worst series on TV. [30 Sep 2005, p.89]
  2. It's a show so determined to shock that it cares more about that than about such things as compelling lead characters, believable situations or inventively solved mysteries.
  3. 30
    It's not awful, exactly, but it's so willfully bleak as to become monotonous.
  4. There is a lot of "The Silence of the Lambs" in Fox's creepy new "Killer Instinct," but not enough to make it compelling rather than simply icky.
  5. With its soundtrack full of metal and techno and its killers packing imported deadly spiders and home surgery kits, it aims for a Gothic moodiness not unrelated to the season's scary-monster shows.

    Lifeless and uninspired.

    The season's worst show.
  8. 0
    Nothing could really prepare anyone for a show so wantonly grisly as this worthless, exploitative program.
  9. This is entertainment? Awful.
  10. A sadistic series that, underneath its ghastly veneer, is just a dull, unoriginal crime drama.
  11. You won't see any worse acting across the broadcast spectrum. The women-in-peril scenes are vile. The writing is atrocious. The series is horrifically bad. And not in a way that would make a good drinking game.
