    It is no small feat to pull off the trick of interweaving so many characters and storylines, but the producers of "Six Degrees"... have accomplished it with admirable smoothness for a series that is just getting under way.

    It's a drama of chance with enough charm to roll the dice on.

    Six Degrees starts off almost as an anthology series, with six stories set in six different worlds, each one quite interesting. But as their orbits draw closer, interest rapidly morphs into fascination.
  4. [It] so far boasts characters more intriguing than their interactions.
  5. The concept is unique, the performances solid or better, but when so many similar shows are competing for attention from viewers who are only willing to commit so much time to watching ongoing TV series, "Six Degrees" just isn't good enough.
  6. In theory, it's an intriguing concept for a series. But in practice, "Six Degrees" doesn't work at all in drawing you in at the start.
  7. 20
    It's lame and it's limp, and as deployed for "Six Degrees," the conceit would seem to owe quite a bit to the movie "Crash," among such other more antique inspirations as "The Bridge of San Luis Rey."
