Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows', 'The Dictator', 'Common Law' And More: The Week In Ouch

Is Tim Burton's macabre shtick getting old? Or is it just an acquired taste? "Dark Shadows" may aim at being silly, but many critics are finding it terribly dull. It even made The Detroit News "long for a 'Twilight' movie." Now that's bad.

Meanwhile, HBO's "Girls" is still getting heat from Gawker, and USA's "Common Law" is apparently dead on arrival. USA Today calls the new buddy-cop series, "TV you need to escape."

HuffPost Entertainment has rounded up the week's snarkiest reviews just for your enjoyment in this latest installment of our "Week In Ouch" series.

Let us know what you think deserved the harsh critiques, and which ones you think critics should ease up on, in the comments.
