Cast & Crew
There's no chemistry to be found in this mismatched household, and there's no fun to be found in it, either.
It's disconcerting to think that since TV transmissions travel almost infinitely into the universe, channel-surfing extraterrestrials might get a glimpse of this show, thus lowering their opinion of Earthlings still further.
For the most part the concept is pedestrian and secondary characters are reduced to stereotypes.
There is nothing here you haven't seen so many times - you'll feel like you're watching reruns.
ABC's "According to Jim" is such a conventional comedy that an actor more skilled at humor than Jim Belushi is needed to lift it above the ordinary.
A standard family sitcom; there's nothing miserable here, but it's as bland as can be. Jim Belushi and Courtney Thorne-Smith are boring and uninspired, and the rest of the characters are barely more than cardboard cutouts.
The new ABC sitcom does not contain one believable moment, the two leads create negative chemistry and the writing is infuriatingly unimaginative and unfunny.
Your enjoyment of this series -- as well as marriage for that matter -- really depends on how high your expectations are. If you expect something special or constantly exciting, you're going to be sadly disappointed.
