Temptation Island (31 January 2001)

When the producers of 'Temptation Island' showed up on their designer beach, the contestants knew that something serious was about to happen.


The Tick

The Tick is just as likely to defeat a foe by exhausting his or her patience as by a head-butt.


24

At 12:38:54 a.m., Jack's somewhat estranged wife accidentally breaks what looks to be a really nice coffee cup.


Touched By An Angel

That’s Life

It's more like those funny skinny line drawings of 1950s housewives.


Titans

Before they sink beneath the sheets, she coos coyly, 'So why are we wasting it?' My sentiments exactly.


Treasure Hunters

Treasure Hunters is all about America, taking viewers back to a glorious past, boosting domestic tourism, and helping us forget about the war on terror, the price of oil, Karl Rove, and his New World Order.


Temptation Island (17 January 2001)

Come on contestants, get tempted or get off the island.


PopMatters - Television - Reviews - The Tom Green Show

By refusing to abide by the modalities of the medium, Tom Green makes the medium itself stand out.


Temptation Island (21 February 2001)

The women are also experiencing a lapse in reason, especially Shannon, which both shocks and appalls me. Her dilemma involves Tom, the sexy single whose designated 'occupation' is 'Ivy League Graduate'.


Temptation Island (premiere)

I'm not making any judgements on escort services (right now), but I never would have expected a major network to become one. Then again, I can be naive.


Thief

Even before his wife was killed and he committed a brutal murder, Nick's life was hardly what you'd call stable.


That ‘80s Show

Seems to regard the '80s as a convenient frame to put around their snooze-inducing, standard sitcom plots.


Take Home Chef

Hoping to reintroduce refinement to the average household menu, Curtis Stone has come to America (he is currently a top restaurateur in the UK) to prove that being an epicure can be easy and exciting.


They Call Me Sirr

Unfortunately titled to call up memories of a couple of Sidney Poitier's most famous films.

Two and a Half Men

Charlie, Alan, and their friends and family may be like hamsters, but it's great fun to look inside their box and watch them squirm.

Temptation Island (28 February 2001)

All that remains, I suppose, is the question of whether or not Fox will ever conceive another relationship-testing reality show.
