No Score Yet The Upside Down Show: Season 1 (TV, 2006-2007) Their dialogue ranges from cutely inane to delightful and dovetails beautifully with their physical comedy. - New York Times EDIT

80% Kappa Mikey: Season 1 (TV, 2006-2008) The story "Kappa" tells - about making friends and fitting in - is a bore, compared with the style in which it's told. - New York Times EDIT

No Score Yet Bullrun: Season 1 (TV, 2007-2010) Sometimes watching Bullrun is as tedious as being on a road trip with your own family. And sometimes it's worse. - New York Times EDIT

No Score Yet Mr. Meaty: Season 1 (TV, 2006-2009) In the small mall world of "Mr. Meaty" nobody looks as good, or as bad, as he thinks. And that's not a bad lesson for tweens. - New York Times EDIT

89% The Mighty B!: Season 1 (TV, 2008-2011) When the going gets tough, it's the worker bees who often win out over the queens. - New York Times EDIT

17% Saul of the Mole Men: Season 1 (TV, 2007) Come to think of it, "Saul" is derivative of something besides some lame, unlamented television shows: It looks a lot like hell. - New York Times EDIT

No Score Yet The Replacements: Season 1 (TV, 2006-2009) It's a cliché, but that doesn't mean you won't laugh. - New York Times EDIT

100% El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera: Season 1 (TV, 2007-2008) If your children like their Manichean battles served up Mexican-style, the new animated series El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera should be to their tastes. - New York Times EDIT

No Score Yet Cory in the House: Season 1 (TV, 2007-2008) [Cory in the House] is not The West Wing: The Teen Years. It's a kids'-eye view of a certain slice of unreality, and as such it succeeds well enough. - New York Times EDIT

87% Frisky Dingo: Season 1 (TV, 2006-2008) The appeal of [Frisky] Dingo isn't visual; it's verbal, a delicious bricolage of corporate jargon and superhero clichés. - New York Times EDIT

No Score Yet The Catherine Tate Show: Series 3 (TV, 2004-2006) Ms. Tate has successfully sent up an entire subculture. If I had understood the culture better, I would have laughed even harder. - New York Times EDIT

95% Planet Earth: Miniseries (TV, 2007) Among this series's many rare feats is that it often encourages you to root for the predator rather than the prey: fitting at a time when the planet itself seems as vulnerable as a newly hatched penguin. - New York Times EDIT

100% Family Ties: Season 1 (TV, 1982-1989) The staging of "Family Ties" echoes this quality, as the family of five runs from room to room like a pack of dogs. They all do it well. - New York Times EDIT

100% Avatar: The Last Airbender: Season 3 (TV, 2005-2008) [Season 3] doesn't skimp on the action, even as it excels at philosophizing. - New York Times EDIT

100% Phineas and Ferb: Season 1 (TV, 2007-2015) Candace, too old for magic but too young for whatever compensations the adult world brings, is the exasperating axis of this surprisingly thoughtful series. - New York Times EDIT

73% Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job!: Season 1 (TV, 2007-2010) If you never seem to be trying for big laughs, it's not so embarrassing when you don't get them. - New York Times EDIT
