    Tiresome nasty camp cartoon homage to 1989's pitch-black cult comedy. [5 Mar - 18 Mar 2018, p.13]

    • 30 Matt Roush
    This isn't so much dirty as drippy. [15-28 May 2017, p.17]

    • 20 Matt Roush
    If F-bombs and infantile name-calling are your special vice, the very thought leaving you gasping with laughter, then maybe Vice Principals will seem like a gnarly, nasty treat. ... Some vices just can't be excused. [25 Jul-7 Aug 2016, p.15]

    • 20 Matt Roush
    The supernatural shocks are less scary than the bad acting. [27 Jun - 10 Jul 2016, p.15]
    • TV Guide Magazine
    • 48 Metascore
    • 20 Matt Roush
    Plagued by mediocre writing and stubbornly dull acting, this unpleasant misfire feels like slow death as it spins out subplots from Disaster Movie 101. [18 Apr-1 May 2016, p.19]
    • TV Guide Magazine
    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Matt Roush
    Any points the 10-episode The Art of More scores for its novel setting--an auction house where unscrupulous dealers vie for priceless collections and deep-pocketed clients--are tarnished by the dramatic fraud the show perpetrates with its paper-thin characters. [9-22 Nov 2015, p.13]
    • TV Guide Magazine
    • 59 Metascore
    • 20 Matt Roush
    This mean-spirited and imbecilic cartoon feels concocted by 14-year-olds sifting through their ugliest tweets. [21-27 Sept 2015, p.17]
    • TV Guide Magazine
    • 56 Metascore
    • 20 Matt Roush
    Perversely unpleasant workplace comedy. [10-23 Aug 2015, p.12]
    • TV Guide Magazine
    • 41 Metascore
    • 20 Matt Roush
    Everything about this show is more of a mis-fire. [27 Jul - 9 Aug 2015, p.12]

    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Matt Roush
    Nothing fishy here, although it is a bit of a wet blanket. [22 Sept 1989, p.5D]

    • 30 Matt Roush
    There's not a lot to love in this strained, often deafening update of the Neil Simon perennial. [16 Feb-1 Mar 2015, p.15]
    • TV Guide Magazine
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Matt Roush
    NBC's disappointingly derivative State of Affairs [is] a clumsy and unconvincing star vehicle for a miscast Katherine Heigl.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 10 Matt Roush
    Think it's easy to clone Seinfeld? Fox's dreadful, embarrassing misfire Mulaney proves otherwise.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 10 Matt Roush
    A toxic concoction of smarm and schmaltz. ... Bad Judge is the sort of bad TV show that makes you despair of the future of comedy.
    • 17 Metascore

    TV really doesn't get much uglier or more cynical than CBS's Stalker, a crass and calculated attempt to keep the Criminal Minds crowd appeased for yet another hour of tacky, icky violence--disproportionately perpetrated against unfortunate women--presented within a glum, indifferently acted formula.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 20 Matt Roush
    This device [hear everything Dana and her potential beau Peter are thinking] grows old within the first minute. By the end of a half-hour, it's unbearable. It would help if Peter weren't such a boor, or Dana such a simp.
    • 57 Metascore

    The stars' charisma could help lift Selfie beyond its narrow premise, but at first glance, it seems too inconsequential even to qualify as an epic fail.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Matt Roush
    It's two bad shows in one and feels like a USA Network castoff.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Matt Roush
    While Z Nation (or as I prefer to think of it, The Running Dead) doesn't exactly play the gory low-budget mayhem for campy laughter, it's hard not to roll, or possibly cover, one's eyes at something this familiar and deeply shallow, with casting mostly so generic--with the exception of Lost's Harold Perrineau as a Delta Force soldier barking orders--that they're all so much chum in this kill-or-be-eaten apocalypse.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Matt Roush
    A hopelessly murky and mind-numbing exercise in unrelieved portentousness bordering on wearying and opaque pretension.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Matt Roush
    It could as easily be Sesame Street as Brewster Place, the way everyone has become so doggone lovable and earnest in this transformation from dark- edged 1989 miniseries to sunny weekly half-hour drama. [1 May 1990]
    • USA Today
    • 52 Metascore
    • 10 Matt Roush
    A grisly wallow in domestic dysfunction that reaches for indie-film cred but collapses under a toxic barrage of bleak vignettes of gamy misery.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Matt Roush
    The ludicrous medical melodrama Rush is a reminder that, if you push the envelope too hard without the compensating virtues of wit or even an iota of humanity and realism, the impulse is to push back.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 10 Matt Roush
    Nothing about Engels works: the tired premise, the strained performances, the empty abyss of silence into which the groaning jokes dissipate.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 30 Matt Roush
    There are some giggles here and there.... But mostly, Vicious is a creepy, in style and attitude, retro serving of tea and hostility that's unworthy of the talents on board.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Matt Roush
    Reckles is merely witless, akin to a trashy and disposable beach read that should come with its own sunscreen--or perhaps a wet bar to distract us from the cheesy plotting and cardboard acting.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Matt Roush
    Some ambitious but flawed dramas get better the more you watch. Tyrant is not one of them. The plotting is obvious, the characters broadly and shallowly drawn, and authenticity evaporates the moment you realize everyone in this land is speaking in clipped Faux-rabian British accents like out of some '40s melodrama.

    What USA Network's adaptation lacks in star power (and does it ever) it tries to overcompensate for in atmosphere -- the same humid texture of New Orleans smells, tastes and music as in the 1987 film. But there's such a thing as laying it on too thick. The Big Easy gags on its local color. [9 Aug 1996, p.3D]

    Say what literary critics will about John Grisham's best sellers, they're not dull. And dull is about the best you can say of the series derived from John Grisham's The Client. [15 Sept 1995, p.3D]

    Roman and Margaux Castavet (scene-stealing Jason Isaacs and Carole Bouquet, the best reasons to tune in). Closer in tone to ABC's failed 666 Park Avenue homage than to Roman Polanski's still-haunting 1968 adaptation, this Baby isn't likely to keep you at night.
