    Hennessy has the strength to be a leading lady, but she's up to her neck in ghoulishness.

    It's an intriguing premise, and executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron (Moonlighting) promises liberal helpings of comedy mixed in the weekly doses of action/suspense. Success rides on where it goes from here. [12 Sep 1999]

    A bubbling stew of raging hormones, buff bodies and the culture shock of rich meets poor. [12 Jul 2000]

    Wolf Lake, CBS' brooding series about humans in wolves' clothing (or maybe that should be vice versa) premieres after a total makeover that leaves it more of a furry X-Files meets Twin Peaks than a confusing call of the wild.

    The surprise is, Blonde's retelling of what's already an offensively oft-told tale is absolutely irresistible. [27 May 2001]

    Ron Glass' Ronald Felcher, history teacher, should have the star billing. He's the only light, and right, in a faculty lounge of stereotypical teacher put-downs. [23 Sep 1996, p.1]

    A six-hour haunted house tale that tugs out every tired trick in the Boo! book, trying to scare you silly. Don't say we didn't warn you, if you're silly enough to watch all that. [27 Jan 2002]

    King scares up a devil of a storm. Stephen King's mission in life is to scare us all to death. And he does a pretty good job of it, too, this week on ABC. [14 Feb 1999]

    To say The Tommyknockers is bad is an understatement. It's awful. [7 May 1993, p.1]

    what was left was such a confusing big-city western, it was hard to tell the good guys from the bad. [21 April 1993, p.8]

    Wonderland is more than a finely crafted TV medical drama. It's an exercise in intensity, as riveting as it is exhausting - and risky. [29 March 2000]

    "Making the Band" is "The Monkees" meets MTV's "The Real World" and "Road Rules." What a concept...The big surprise is, it works. [24 March 2000]

    God, the Devil and Bob is irreverent, but it's not offensive. It's just not as good or as funny as it should be. [9 March 2000]

    What sells this TV cop shop is its heavy emphasis on the personal and the personalities of two young men in a high stress job. [19 March 2000]

    Unfortunately, Battery Park is a precinct I don't care enough about to come back for more. [23 March 2000]

    If NBC hopes to ride the wave generated by the movie The Sixth Sense, it has a way to go to catch it. The Others is a too-predictable curiosity adrift in a sea of aiming-to-scare-you special effects. [4 Feb 2000]

    "From the Earth to the Moon" is television at its finest. A soaring journey to a new level of creative dramatic artistry and TV technology to explore the can-do spirit of ordinary men doing something so extraordinary that it changed our world forever. [5 Apr 1998]

    Tucker turns adolescence into hormone hell in this raunchy effort to capitalize on the charm of "Malcolm in the Middle". [2 Oct 2000, p.4]

    No wonder Danny doesn't have a laugh track. Who's laughing?

    The Tick made me laugh out loud enough to miss the next laugh line. And that doesn't happen often in these TV times of tired old, same old sitcoms. [4 Nov 2001, p.2]

    Having now seen it, I don't think I want to go there. [8 Oct 1999, p.H1]

    Beggars could be a great one, if they don't waste their time going for sex jokes. [17 June 1999, p.1]

    In my opinion, her performance registers as expressionless, which is not terribly impressive for one who's reportedly been acting since age 4. [27 Sept 1996, p.1]

    The responsibility for Gideon's Crossing rests with Braugher's appeal, and he's up to it. The rest is up to the scripts, to make Ben more human and the stories less dark and down. [10 Oct 2000, p.1]

    The Huntress has a lot going for it. O'Toole is smashing, the script is a nice mix of comedy and action, and these quirky but well-drawn characters actually have heart. [26 Jul 2000]

    This gangster saga works best when its hero is in peril. The whackings and the miserably boring lives of thugs - who appear to do nothing but hang around a dumpy pool room bar when they aren't killing each other - are old stuff by now. The double life with the Pistone family adds a different diversion, and there are occasional attempts at humor. [4 Apr 2000]

    So far, the plot's in place, but Dead Zone's good old gotcha is minimal. And in anything claiming to trace its roots to Stephen King, minimal chill factor could be risky - maybe even the kiss of death. [15 June 2002, p.9]

    The emphasis in this series opener is on action. What's missing is the more gentle humor and fantasy that marked the miniseries as a family treat. [26 Nov 2002]

    Ritter has a well-honed sense of comedic timing, and some of the lines are clever, for a change. This one could grow on you. [15 Sep 2002]

    Watching Ellie is better than bad, but it could be - no, should be - a lot more fun than it is. [26 Feb 2002]
