Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
16% The Deep End: Season 1 (TV, 2010) The legal elements of the busy premiere fall heavily into the bizarre... Instead of smiling at the outlandishness, you're more likely to roll your eyes at the absurdities.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

46% Happy Town: Season 1 (TV, 2010) The cast is solid but "Happy Town" is more story-driven than a platform for star turns.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

50% Family Bonds: Season 1 (TV, 2004) Family Bonds turns a marketing slogan upside down: This isn't HBO, it's TV. ‐ Baltimore Sun

13% The Jeff Foxworthy Show: Season 1 (TV, 1995-1996) Foxworthy hasn't broken though completely yet, and the standard sitcom format isnt likely to provide him the opportunity to get fully noticed. Worse, the early Saturday audience is not his crowd.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

57% Robbery Homicide Division: Season 1 (TV, 2002) Robbery Homicide Division doesn't invite viewers to watch. It challenges them without offering a satisfactory payoff.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

50% Haunted: Season 1 (TV, 2002) There is not a darker, more dismal, less inviting new series on the fall schedule.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

83% Platinum: Season 1 (TV, 2003) The high-energy, high-risk milieu is rich in dramatic possibilities, several of which are mined in a busy pilot episode. However, the nature of the series is likely to limit its audience not so much by race as by age.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

0% Inside Schwartz: Season One (TV, 2001-2002) Non-sports fans will miss many of the inside references and not recognize the big-name athletes making cameos. There goes much of the comedy.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

8% The Weber Show: Season 1 (TV, 2000-2001) The original pilot had a humorous punchline to this confrontation. It has been exorcised from the retooled premiere, which, all things considered, isn't as funny as the show that is getting on the air.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

44% The Brotherhood of Poland, New Hampshire: Season 1 (TV, 2003) It might be time for [David E.] Kelley, one of the most prolific, inventive writer-producers in TV history, to take a breather to replenish his creative juices.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

7% Hidden Hills: Season 1 (TV, 2002-2003) Hidden Hills is not a place you'll want to visit often.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2020
79% The Education of Max Bickford: Season 1 (TV, 2001-2002) The Education of Max Bickford is a smartly written and executed drama, and viewers should have no problem becoming extremely comfortable with it.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

21% Hack: Season 1 (TV, 2002-2003) The concept is more far-fetched than a cabbie who always takes the shortest route. ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2020
29% Bram and Alice: Season 1 (TV, 2002) This is a one-bad-joke show.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2020
44% The Oblongs: Season 1 (TV, 2001-2002) The Oblongs is funny, sometimes very funny.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2020
19% Three Sisters: Season 1 (TV, 2001) The new NBC sitcom is blessed with more talent than the insipid material warrants. There has to be a better show out there for Vicki Lewis.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

27% MDs: Season 1 (TV, 2002) There is as much humor, all of it dark, as drama.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Jan 7, 2020
9% In-Laws: Season 1 (TV, 2002-2003) A mix of solid old pros and appealing younger stars makes the uninspired writing tolerable. ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2020
63% The D.A.: Season 1 (TV, 2004) The new legal drama is intelligently written, complex but not confounding. The characters are vividly drawn and multi-dimensional, heroic yet deeply flawed. ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2020
36% That Was Then: Season 1 (TV, 2002) An exceptional star might have been able to overcome the conceptual shortcomings, but James Bulliard is essentially charisma-free as Travis.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Jan 7, 2020
33% Gary & Mike: Season 1 (TV, 2001) There are half-hearted attempts at caustic social commentary, but they are either so ham-fisted as to squander their humor or sufficiently subtle to fly past the target audience.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2019
25% Greetings from Tucson: Season 1 (TV, 2002-2003) The only thing unique or distinctive about either is that Greetings From Tucson is about an ethnically blended family and features a predominantly Latino cast. Otherwise, all the familiar trappings and contrivances are present.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

29% Presidio Med: Season 1 (TV, 2002-2003) [A] solid hour of entertainment.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2020
14% Modern Men: Season 1 (TV, 2006) The best advice these cretins could get would be to start updating their resumes. It would be prudent to delete Modern Men.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2020
30% The Beast: Season 1 (TV, 2001) Like the World News Service, The Beast merits points for ambition and daring to be different. But it also deserves demerits for taking itself a little too seriously, especially during a time of year when carefree is the rule.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

6% Romantically Challenged: Season 1 (TV, 2010) "Romantically Challenged" is romance challenged, humor challenged, intelligence challenged and viewer-respect challenged.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted May 13, 2020
30% The Commish: Season 1 (TV, 1991-1992) There are bad shows, which are harmless, and there are shows like The Commish, which is bad and dangerous. Some shows wink at police brutality. The Commish smiles at it.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 15, 2020
36% Hell's Kitchen: Season 1 (TV, 2005) Opening night at Hell's Kitchen is a disaster. Many of those drawn to the place eventually walk out, vowing never to return. The same is likely to be the experience of this series. How fitting for a show that passes itself off as reality.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

55% seaQuest DSV: Season 1 (TV, 1993-1994) The movie-length pilot is as tedious as six months at sea, and as hokey as the 20,000 Leagues ride at Disney World.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2020
70% Sliders: Season 1 (TV, 1995) This latest arrival is a tasty junk-food morsel, with a light touch that makes it quite digestible.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2020
50% Push, Nevada: Season 1 (TV, 2002) To sustain the mystery, which carries a prize in excess of $1 million, the plot is complex and convoluted.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2020
70% Steve Harvey's Big Time Challenge: Season 1 (TV, 2003-2004) Big Time is at least different. Some viewers will find it evocative of oldies like Real People and That's Incredible, but there's nothing else like it in prime time now.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2020
91% Cedric the Entertainer Presents: Season 1 (TV, 2002-2003) Cedric's irresistibly likable.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2020
88% Everybody Loves Raymond: Season 1 (TV, 1996-1997) Romano and Heaton would be enough to put any show on a solid footing, but they also are blessed with as solid a supporting cast as will be found among the many new series this fall.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel

53% 8 Simple Rules: Season 1 (TV, 2002-2003) Every line can be seen coming, the characters are not that engaging and they have virtually no chemistry.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2020
35% Less Than Perfect: Season 1 (TV, 2002-2003) Less than mediocre. This is standard, predictable fish-out-of-water fare, which isn't helped by the piranha-like scenery-chewing by just about everyone in the cast.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2020
87% Without a Trace: Season 1 (TV, 2002-2003) The emphasis on police procedure and solid story-telling should be satisfying to CSI fans. ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2020
59% The Big Bang Theory: Season 1 (TV, 2007-2008) The Big Bang Theory isn't a threat to break into the ranks of classic comedies but it's thoroughly enjoyable, thanks to brilliant star turns by Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2020
36% Rules of Engagement: Season 1 (TV, 2007) The writing is clever and crisp with a refreshingly delicate touch.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Apr 1, 2020
36% What I Like About You: Season 1 (TV, 2002-2003) It's a tired, threadbare concept, whose only redeeming qualities are its female leads. But they aren't appealing enough to overcome a cavalcade of stale jokes and predictable physical comedy.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2020
100% The Corner: Miniseries (TV, 2000) The Corner is daring television, a show only HBO, which isn't a slave to advertising and ratings, would attempt. Each episode is riveting in its intensity. ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2020
78% The L Word: Season 2 (TV, 2005) The L Word is clearly not for everyone, but for those willing to approach it with an open mind it's better than just OK.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2020
78% The O.C.: Season 1 (TV, 2003-2004) There's nothing not to like about the people of The O.C.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2020
86% The O.C.: Season 2 (TV, 2004-2005) A misguided decision to create unnecessary cliffhangers has forced the Fox drama to concoct an episode that does nothing more than clean up the mess left last spring. Next week, the show resumes being the O.C. that became appointment viewing.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2020
59% The O.C.: Season 4 (TV, 2006-2007) It's easy to deduce how the characters of The O.C. spent their summer vacation. They were practicing jumping the shark. They have it down perfectly.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2020
66% Grey's Anatomy: Season 1 (TV, 2005) The setup and storylines of Grey's Anatomy are derivative of dozens of other medical dramas, making its fate dependent on viewer reaction to the cast. This is a mixed bag.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2020
30% The Andromeda Strain: Season 1 (TV, 2008) The production does have its heart-stopping moments, just not enough to support a four-hour investment. ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Mar 4, 2020
86% Secrets of the Dead: Season 2 (TV, 2001) While the topics are borderline sensational, they are presented in an almost clinical manner, dominated by talking heads. It's as if the producers are apologizing for being too provocative. Even in the summer, PBS is PBS.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2020
48% Secret Diary of a Call Girl: Season 1 (TV, 2008) Iddo Goldberg is adequate but absolutely forgettable as Ben. In his defense, the series is a star vehicle for Piper and she drives it skillfully.‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Read More | Posted Mar 4, 2020
76% Cold Case: Season 1 (TV, 2003-2004) It's a slick package. ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
