Alex, Inc.: Season 1 (2018)

Season 1
Alex, Inc.

Critics Consensus

By failing to establish the credibility of its lead, Alex, Inc loses sight an appealing premise and strands a likable Zach Braff in a sea of wasted potential.

Critic Reviews for Alex, Inc. Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8)

Still, Alex, Inc. is an enjoyably comfy fit among all of those fellow ABC family comedies.

Mar 28, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…
Top Critic

Exhausted yet? It's a ton to take in, and if Alex is having trouble keeping up, imagine the show's poor viewers.

Mar 26, 2018 | Full Review…
Top Critic

The professional quest... unfolds with an off-putting, frantic energy that undermines the star and show.

Mar 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Alex, Inc. seems more like a family sitcom that occasionally dresses like a workplace comedy.

Mar 28, 2018 | Full Review…

There is richness to Alex, Inc. It's just everywhere except the main story.

Mar 29, 2018 | Full Review…
Top Critic

It's good-natured almost to a fault, a giant dimple of a show.

Mar 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Tepid comedy has positive messages about work/life balance.

Apr 10, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

What Alex, Inc. cries out for is for that one character who doesn't think Alex is amazing, smart, sexy, funny or God's gift to humanity.

Mar 28, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

The trouble with a show insisting that someone is a genius is that it has to go ahead and prove it, and nothing Alex does is particularly convincing in this arena.

Mar 28, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The resulting Alex, Inc.... seems a step up from family sitcoms, with some amusing visual comedy going on in the background.

Mar 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Currently... it's only halfway to that goal, and instead of wanting to watch more, I'm just thinking about podcasts now.

Mar 28, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

It's more pathetic than funny.
