The Critic

This show follows Jay Sherman who is a movie critic on TV. He is forced to review the most dumbest films to which he always says this line "It stinks" for his reviews, that's his catch phrase. In addition to the film parodies, the show also deals with Jay's personal life, his son which he has to raise alone, working with his tyrannical media mogul boss and his love-life and family.

    Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert famously turned down offers to guest star on TV shows and in movies because they felt it would have been a conflict of interest. But this turned out to be the exception and this is the only show in which they guest starred together. The episode was called "Siskel and Ebert and Jay and Alice" and the story is a parody of Sleepless in Seattle in which Jay and Alice attempt to patch things up between the duo when one of their verbal feuds causes them to split up.
