News & Interviews for 9JKL: Season 1
At least he (Feuerstein) gets to work with his writer wife, Dana Klein,, with whom he created the show. (They say based on their lives. I say, condolences.)
Everyone is far too involved in each other's business, because that's how sitcoms work, but the show's screechy self-loathing makes that seem damning and toxic rather than just antic and fun.
The pilot promises a competent if familiar sitcom comedy that's more comfortable than daring - and that's OK.
Perhaps the best of '9JKL' is its cast. And yet their performances are exaggerated and exempt from any hint of subtlety. [Full Review in Spanish]
The show's one-joke premise - parents can be such buttinskis! - wears thin fast despite the likability of Ms. Lavin and Mr. Gould.
9JKL is the kind of show that could have existed in the '90s, early '00s, or today, and still been panned no matter when it debuted.
I like the cast, and it's beyond cute that the creator/writer/executive producer is Feuerstein's real-life wife, Dana Klein. But this is painfully unfunny. It's a chore to sit through.
Except for the randier jokes, it seems to have been mined from a bygone era of TV, complete with laugh track.
To be fair, 9JKL does raise some important questions: principally, what bridge is Gould living under that he had to take this show?
Audience Reviews for 9JKL: Season 1
Aug 27, 2018What a shame. I can't remember when a show made me laugh hysterically. I howled! Through /every episode. I was stunned when it was cancelled. Fortunately, after a few episodes, I stopped deleting them from my DVR. I seriously regret that I didn't save the first 4. What is wrong with people that they didn't like it? The writing was as clever as the delivery by a very talented cast. So sorry for the cast and crew who certainly deserved better. Guess funny isn't good enough anymore. I'm still shaking my head is disbelief. What can you expect from a bunch of folks who think sitting on an island eating bugs is entertainment? Sadly, quality doesn't count for much anymore. Critics aren't in touch with reality either.
Mar 08, 2018So far, this is my favourite show, it is they continue the show,,, I can't wait for the new episodes...

Feb 06, 2018Love this show!!! Amazing cast and great family TV!!
Feb 05, 2018I love it I give it an 85% out of 100% . it is clean humor and the Mom and Dad are the cats meow! love it !
Feb 02, 2018The cast on this show has great chemistry! Linda Lavin is fantastic -- kind of mom that makes me homesick for NY. The doorman is another standout, although all characters are very strong. I'm also always delighted by the parents' apartment -- it feels so real, with the papers and magazines always pushed down at one end of the table, etc. 9JKLhas a lot of humor and a lot of love - just what I need!
