6/10 36% Mixology: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Mixology has sharp-witted lines that are genuinely funny-if at times highly sexist-rather than being gratuitous, clich├ęs, or too-obvious puns. " — Under the Radar
Posted Feb 27, 2014
7/10 77% About a Boy: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " With Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood) as creator and producer, About a Boy could very well be the next universally appealing family show. " — Under the Radar
Posted Feb 24, 2014
7/10 36% Growing Up Fisher: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " The nutty parents in Growing Up Fisher do a good job of playing their extreme characters, instinctually making their eccentricities acceptable and funny rather than far-fetched and excessive. " — Under the Radar
Posted Feb 24, 2014
6/10 59% Star-Crossed: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Replace aliens with vampires and the armed guards with the Volturi and Star-Crossed is a slightly less insipid Twilight. At the very least, the acting is of a certain quality, especially with Friday Night Lights alums Teegarden and Damon. " — Under the Radar
Posted Feb 18, 2014
7/10 66% Rake: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Kinnear is a natural in the starring role, effortlessly making the shambles of his character's life seem not only plausible, but also sympathetic. " — Under the Radar

3/10 59% Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) " The main storyline isn't strong enough and the incongruous peripheral elements just confuse rather than engage the viewer. " — Under the Radar
Posted Oct 11, 2013
4/10 70% Witches of East End: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Witch-themed shows work better when both the witches and the target audience are teenagers. The grown-up witches on Witches of East End are just a little too ridiculous-even more so than the witch sister trio of Charmed. " — Under the Radar
Posted Oct 7, 2013
4/10 46% The Millers: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) " Their [the cast] experience and timing makes the writing work better than it is written, but they are working overtime to get that to happen. " — Under the Radar
Posted Oct 3, 2013
3/10 42% Welcome to the Family: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Welcome to the Family's storyline is so predictable, it doesn't warrant watching. " — Under the Radar
Posted Oct 3, 2013
4/10 14% Ironside: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Gruff at every turn, including when he's coaching hockey, and always working, even in the middle of an amorous interlude, Ironside overdoes the dedicated cop role, overcompensating for the wheelchair with his relentless pursuit of criminals. " — Under the Radar
Posted Oct 2, 2013
5/10 33% Super Fun Night: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Super Fun Night doesn't have the bite Wilson could easily be producing. " — Under the Radar
Posted Oct 2, 2013
3/10 4% We Are Men: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " For a comedy, We Are Men is, in a word, sad. " — Under the Radar
Posted Sep 30, 2013
4.5/10 8% Betrayal: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " This brings us back to the opening scene, which is also the closing scene, slotted in to make sure we tune in again because nothing else that has happened in the duration of the show justifies our return. " — Under the Radar
Posted Sep 30, 2013
5/10 52% Back in the Game: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Nothing groundbreaking, but every so often a sports-themed show is de rigueur. " — Under the Radar
Posted Sep 25, 2013

Posted Sep 25, 2013
8/10 82% The Blacklist: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " The drama's storytelling is powerful enough to make you commit to it from the very first episode. " — Under the Radar
Posted Sep 23, 2013
2/10 67% Mom: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) " Mom flails so desperately-with no redeeming aspects-it is unlikely any kind of life preserver can save it. " — Under the Radar
Posted Sep 23, 2013
2/10 0% Dads: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) " With such a superior comedy cast, it's deplorable how far this badly written and directed show has dragged them down. " — Under the Radar

Posted Aug 12, 2013
6/10 69% Graceland: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " [The] storylines, plus colorful characters, including fun-loving Johnny (Chicago Code's Manny Montana) and playful Paige (Breakout Kings' Serinda Swan) make Graceland worth the trip. " — Under the Radar

Posted Apr 3, 2013

Posted Feb 19, 2013
7/10 42% Zero Hour: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Edwards leads Zero Hour's intriguing story with a strong and balanced performance. With its multiple, historically embedded layers, Zero Hour is an engaging watch. " — Under the Radar
Posted Feb 14, 2013
3.5/10 18% Do No Harm: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " In order for Do No Harm to make sense, it has to scale back on the far-out scenarios. And if it does that, then the premise disappears and we're left with a generic color-by-numbers doctor program. " — Under the Radar

Posted Nov 10, 2012

Posted Oct 10, 2012
4/10 58% 666 Park Avenue: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) " 666 Park Avenue is the kind of show that relies on too much mystery for returning viewership. This is usually because the show doesn't have enough substance to back up its patchy storyline. " — Under the Radar
Posted Sep 30, 2012
4/10 77% Last Resort: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) " Just not sure how long it can drag out trying to find who gave the false order and how many overlapping conspiracies will be uncovered in the process. " — Under the Radar

7/10 81% The Mindy Project: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) " Mindy walks a tenuous line that could any minute drop into psycho-chick, but doesn't. You can't help rooting for this awesome, if neurotic, gal. " — Under the Radar
