  1. It's tough for anything to succeed on Saturday night, and this show may be too uneven to hold up for long. But it has possibilities, so let's hope ABC sticks with it for a while.
  2. But this outstanding drama...takes the most horrible of situations and turns it into an intelligent, entertaining, strongly pro-family series.
  3. Falcone, while not perfect, is an engaging series that CBS is running as a miniseries
  4. The Beat is certainly a leap up from most of what UPN airs. [20 March 2000]

  5. Nearly unwatchable -- a dreadful rehash of old sitcom jokes that are, at best, lame and, at worst, offensive.
  6. Quite frankly, it's just about the most unpleasant half hour as NBC has cooked up in quite some time. It's not just that it's not funny -- which it's not -- but Perkins' character in particular and the show in general are just plain unpleasant.
  7. Whether The Others turns out to be a great series remains to be seen. It is, at least, an intriguing one with possibilities.
  8. The best thing to hit TV this season. [1 Apr 1998, p.C1]

  9. Sort of "Back to the Future" by way of "thirtysomething" -- a derivative, annoying drama with a time-travel conceit. [27 Sept 2002, p.C08]

  10. Hurrah for diversity! If only this were a show that was actually worth watching. [19 Sept 2003, p.C01]
    • Deseret News
  11. It's relatively entertaining, but the content is more than a bit rough for its 7 p.m. time slot.
  12. From the looks of the pilot, it doesn't look like anything to get excited about. [15 Sept 1998]
    • Deseret News
  13. It's deliciously dumb. [8 Nov 2001, p.C02]
    • Deseret News
  14. A violent, confusing and ultimately unsatisfying journey to the dark side. [8 Oct 1999, p.C08]
    • Deseret News
  15. A silly bit of fluff, complete with low-tech special effects and silly sight gags. But that's exactly what it's intended to be. [27 Sept 1996, p.3]
    • Deseret News
  16. I hate this show...This is an awful, awful show. [24 Sept 2002, p.C08]
    • Deseret News
  17. Crossing is excellent drama, strongly written and well-acted. The big question, however, is whether it will remain as unremittingly serious as tonight's pilot episode -- which might make it a bit heavy for weekly viewing. [10 Oct 2000, p.C07]

  18. It's all rather dull. Which might be remedied. Maybe. [4 Oct 2003, p.E08]

  19. If all teenage boys think about is sex, sex and more sex, then the producers and writers of "life as we know it" have captured the teenage boy perfectly.
  20. "The Chronicle" is more a goof than a scare. [12 Jul 2001]
    • Deseret News
  21. Good weird. [3 Aug 1998]

  22. "Dinotopia" is all style and little substance. The effects are good -- especially for TV -- but far too little attention was paid to developing scripts and characters. [27 Nov 2002]
    • Deseret News
  23. Ritter and Segal are better than their material, but this is the sort of show (like "Home Improvement" or "Full House") that ABC used to do so well. [13 Sep 2002]
    • Deseret News
  24. "Watching Ellie" isn't a total disaster. Louis-Dreyfus sings really well. [15 Apr 2003]
    • Deseret News
  25. The Magnificent Seven is sort of an odd mixture of 1990s political correctness and every cliche that's ever been played out in Western movies and TV shows. But, odder still, it all comes together in a rather enjoyable way. [2 Jan 1998]

  26. It's funny, it's cute, it's different ... This is a surprisingly good little show that kids and parents can both enjoy. [27 Sep 1997]
    • Deseret News
  27. Terrible...Tremors isn't funny, scary or suspenseful. It isn't even one of those shows that's so bad it's fun. It's just bad. [27 Mar 2003, p.C04]
    • Deseret News
  28. This is lame-brained - if relatively harmless - junk. [20 Sept 1996]
    • Deseret News
  29. It's all extraordinarily dark and forboding, not to mention violent and convoluted. The art direction and special effects are pretty cool, but it's simply not enough to make for interesting television. [6 Mar 1999, p.E06]
    • Deseret News
  30. A "comedy" that's not funny, original or in the least bit interesting.[3 June 2005]
