    The overall effect is pleasing, light, cheerful.
  2. The pilot looks dangerously flawed and seriously underwhelming.
  3. The show’s not awful, but not Robert Altman, either.
  4. 37
    Unfortunately, the comedy is Kelley at his most forced and artificial.
  5. "Bells" needs to be about more than pacifying that week's psycho bride (or her demanding mother), or it risks being an updated version of "The Love Boat."
  6. 20
    Somebody on The Wedding Bells is always saying ''We need to talk about it,'' to which the reply is invariably something like "I'm not big on dating men I've slept with.''

    It is awful. It is truly awful. It is awful in ways that make the word "awful" seem inadequate.
