There ought to be a place even in a pacifist's heart for a show as warm and playful as this one.

For me, Enlisted's charm is its ability to organically blend serious plotlines with goofball humour, and to generate laughs out of the most innocuous subjects.

Compared with its network competition, Enlisted is a qualified success. Fox should give it time to earn a promotion to a better time slot.

The soldiers' incompetence remains Enlisted's go-to gag, even as it gestures toward the complexities of family dynamics, whether blood-related or more broadly, in the military as family.

January 15, 2014 Full Review Source: PopMatters

It's a high jinks-heavy but psychology-driven show that wants to please a general audience while also seeming halfway credible to viewers who've served in the armed forces or know somebody who has.

January 13, 2014 Full Review Source: Vulture

There's a good energy to their chemistry, and the first episodes of Enlisted crackles along agreeably enough.

January 10, 2014 Full Review Source: rogercatlin.com

Enlisted is sweet and funny (Young especially is a riot here).

It's a surprisingly touching and layered comedy that's wildly entertaining.

The show is silly, sweet, sad, and ultimately life-affirming without ever descending into maudlin slop.

Even when you're not laughing out loud at the clever one-liners, and there are plenty, you'll be smiling at Enlisted's overflowing charm.

Enlisted's gotten off to a good start - helping us all realize that, despite careworn plots, being funny is as simple as the writing.

It might be easier to enjoy Enlisted if it were clear in what era, or universe, it's supposed to be taking place.

I didn't laugh much at Enlisted... but maybe you will.

It works surprisingly well as sort of a Community in camouflage fronted.

I wasn't expecting much from Enlisted based on the Fox promos, but it's immediately engaging and funny and makes you want to watch more as this world grows and the comedy increases its potential, much in the manner of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Enlisted earns its modest Stripes (a clear influence here) with unexpected sweetness amid the wacky shenanigans.

It has a sneaky kind of goofy charm that grows on you.

Like its noncombat soldiers, Enlisted may not be taking big shots. But it knows what it is, and it's proud to serve.

The show is remarkably, refreshingly funny, particularly when it gets a large number of its ensemble cast members together to bounce their odd personalities off one another.

January 10, 2014 Full Review Source: AV Club

Enlisted is not groundbreaking comedy, but it's dependable and heartfelt - and sometimes that's all you need in your foxhole.

I thought it might be hard to make a funny show about the military that's not about a war long past. I was wrong.

Enlisted... really, really wants to be Stripes, but it has none of its panache. Where Stripes was full of memorable misfits, Enlisted is full of mismatched ones.

Between the silly and sweet of the hijinks the writers weave a couple of serious threads about the grim realities associated with the military life, including loved ones left at home and the issues faced by returning soldiers.

Sentimental, funny, absurd, ridiculous, dumb, smart, silly, romantic, and there's even (unexpectedly) a patriotic bone or two.

Created by Kevin Biegel, co-creator of Cougar Town, the humor in Enlisted is less gonzo than in his previous series. But "Enlisted" is often still funny, and the bond among the brothers is sweet without getting too cloying.

While Enlisted appears to possess a pretty clear set of marching orders, in this sort of midseason exercise, that's only half the battle.

It may tug on your heartstrings, but its wit and intelligence are among the attributes that give it the right to do so.

It's been a long time since M*A*S*H, and Enlisted's ripe, absurd comic situations make you question why more sitcoms aren't set in the military.

Enlisted is so charming, so quickly.

After the pilot, the next three episodes become a little desperate, to the point of straining character credibility in several cases.

The Geoff Stults-led comedy has a heart that could beat stronger if the stereotypes get dialed down.

While Enlisted isn't as one-note awful as I expected (given its January premiere), it's not great comedy, either - but offers up just enough to be sandwiched between those two extremes.

The whole show just feels cartoonish and, well, silly.

I think they've charmed their way up to at least a Grade B-.
