Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
33% Ellen: Season 1 (TV, 1994) For what it's worth, DeGeneres is blithely likable in this role, and does a better job of being DeGeneres than Seinfeld does being Seinfeld, although Seinfeld is so awful that that's faint praise.‐ Chicago Tribune

29% Madman of the People: Season 1 (TV, 1994-1995) There aren't many big laughs in "Madman of the People," but viewers should find Jack, the irreverent magazine columnist played by Dabney Coleman, amusingly familiar.‐ Chicago Tribune

86% The Five Mrs. Buchanans: Season 1 (TV, 1994-1995) As a concept, The Five Mrs. Buchanans is amusingly clever. Unfortunately, the show's execution is only moderately amusing because it falls back on stereotypical characters. ‐ Chicago Tribune

0% Fortune Hunter: Season 1 (TV, 1994) The fundamental problem with Fortune Hunter is that once you take away the gorgeous face, the gadgets, the beautiful women and the daredevil antics, what you have is a materialistic, macho jerk.‐ Chicago Tribune

14% Muddling Through: Season 1 (TV, 1994) It's tired, mechanical, formulaic and, worse, unfunny.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

60% Hardball: Season 1 (TV, 1994) The jokes, many of them funny, come at runaway-train speed. But "Hardball" had better be careful. It could easily bury itself under a pile of generic locker-room, scratch-and-sniff gags.‐ Chicago Tribune

50% The Martin Short Show: Season 1 (TV, 1994) The Martin Short Show is a muddled mess.‐ Chicago Tribune

82% Christy: Season 1 (TV, 1994) Stands solidly on its own, representing exactly what we could use more of: hearty, dramatic television. ‐ Chicago Tribune

No Score Yet Sisters: Season 4 (TV, 1993-1994) Sisters remains the brightest of TV's quirky pleasures.‐ Chicago Tribune

100% New York Undercover: Season 1 (TV, 1994-1995) New York Undercover instead moves with the edgy motion of a music video - with a thumping hip-hop soundtrack...‐ Orlando Sentinel

No Score Yet Picket Fences: Season 3 (TV, 1994-1995) What I've enjoyed about this series is how it touches on the gray areas of ethical and moral issues... Kelley thrives as a dramatist who can make humorless issues entertaining TV. ‐ Chicago Tribune

60% Thea: Season 1 (TV, 1993-1994) The acting in the pilot episode is crisp and the script occasionally funny. You remember the funny lines, but not necessarily the people who delivered them.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

33% 704 Hauser: Season 1 (TV, 1994) I'd like to see "Hauser" succeed... But I don't see much of a future for the Cumberbatches on Hauser Street.‐ Chicago Tribune

63% Earth 2: Season 1 (TV, 1994-1995) Judging by the two-hour premiere episode, "Earth 2" is a well-crafted and entertaining show, based less on high-tech action than interpersonal relationships.‐ Chicago Tribune

75% Chicago Hope: Season 1 (TV, 1994-1995) Mandy Patinkin (Dr. Jeffrey Geiger) and Adam Arkin (Dr. Aaron Shutt) head a superb cast in this powerful, conscientious series.‐ Chicago Tribune

No Score Yet Grounded for Life: Season 2 (TV, 2001-2002) Grounded's device of retracing its steps, as though it is moving backward, can be rather clever, and the series, about parents outsmarted by their children, can be laugh-out-loud funny.‐ Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com

65% Friends: Season 1 (TV, 1994-1995) Unlike Ellen and Seinfeld, which pride themselves on exploring the trivial, Friends wants to be about something-which I suppose is its attempt to be a deeper, more poignant show. It isn't, not yet anyway.‐ Chicago Tribune
