No Score Yet Secret Agent Man: Season 1 (TV, 2000) Suppose someone took a fancy-shmancy pornographic movie and edited out everything that cannot be shown on broadcast television... You'd be left with confusing scenes of attractive people looking vaguely hungry and speaking in monotones. - New York Times EDIT

80% Becker: Season 1 (TV, 1998-2004) Perhaps Mr. Danson's character is supposed to be a voice of reason in a world gone mad. Or maybe he's just a nasty jerk with a stethoscope in his pocket. Does it matter? This is a so-called comedy without one genuine laugh. - New York Times EDIT

45% Stephen King's Rose Red: Mini-Series (TV, 2002) ''Rose Red'' is a clever tale to the end. You'll never be tempted to take it seriously. But if you let it hook you, you won't be tempted to turn it off. - New York Times EDIT

43% The King of Queens: Season 1 (TV, 1998-2007) The performers are pleasant enough, and Ms. Remini almost gives Carrie some zing. But they can't overcome the stale setup. - New York Times EDIT

92% Gilmore Girls: Season 1 (TV, 2000-2016) As a premise for a television series, this one isn't half bad. But the real test is the characters, and Gilmore Girls may make it on that score, too. - New York Times EDIT

86% That '70s Show: Season 1 (TV, 1998-2006) The trappings of That 70's Show are specific...clunky heels or not, you've been in their shoes. And you know that some day she's going to break his heart. - New York Times EDIT

71% Frank Herbert's 'Dune': Miniseries (TV, 2000) If you're looking for some unusual entertainment - a bracing workout for the eye and maybe the heart but surely not for the mind - then settle back and let the trip begin. You may hang on for the whole weird ride. - New York Times EDIT

89% Futurama: Season 1 (TV, 1999) If those 15 producers and their countless associates can bolster their good intentions with some more comic fire, this richly drawn show could become, if not a cultural watershed, at least a weekly habit. - New York Times EDIT
