  1. 88
    The writing is so good, so clean and understated that it's a pleasure to behold.
  2. 75
    A witty, sophisticated romantic drama.
  3. Heche really shines in this role.
  4. "Men in Trees" wants to be a "Sex and the Tundra" but is closer to "Northern Overexposure."

    With the quirky tone and lead character's voiceover, this all feels a little too much like "Anne's Anatomy," with neither the wit nor whimsy necessary to sustain a concept that would likely fare better as a romantic comedy feature than an ongoing series.
  6. A mere wisp of a show, so lighter than air that it threatens to float away at any moment.

    At least "Men in Trees" doesn't tax your brain. Just your patience, taste and intelligence.
