  1. An ostensibly ridiculous but subtly intelligent soap.
  2. 63
    Dramatically speaking, what douses a bit of the fire of this ensemble show are a few non-compelling characters and/or bad actors.
  3. It's probably too much to ask costars Matthew Modine and Broadway royalty Audra McDonald to inject some depth, but we're pleading anyway. [31 Mar 2006, p.57]

    About 10 years too late to qualify as provocative.
  5. 25
    The Bedford Diaries... is not merely the worst show of the vernal season but one of the worst ever concocted by the soon-to-vanish WB.

    It wants to be shockingly frank but is mostly dour and phony.
  7. "The Bedford Diaries" is just woeful -- the most trite, forced and stage-managed piece of empty titillation you're likely to see.
