Alone Together: Season 1 (2018)



Critic Consensus: Esther Povistky and Benji Alflalo's awkward charms and convincingly platonic chemistry work, though Alone Together's lack of urgency keeps its nihilistic tenderness from truly jelling.

Tv Season Info

Starring stand-up comedians Esther Povitsky ("Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and named Variety's "10 comics to watch in 2017") and Benji Aflalo ("Not Safe with Nikki Glaser") as two overlooked millennial misfits from different backgrounds trying to make their way in the vain and status-obsessed culture of Los Angeles. These two only find salvation in their male/female strictly platonic friendship. Throughout the season Esther and Benji's misadventures include shooting their own music video, standing in line for a Lip Kit Pop Up, and even trying their hand at retirement life. Regardless of the escapade, you can be sure in their own warped way they will have each other's backs while calling each other on their nonsense in a way that only best friends can.

Alone Together otherwise can be pretty good company for the most part.

"Alone Together" shows what it's like to be on-the-outside-of-cool-looking-in and how truly uncool that can make confidence-free - but funny! -- people feel.

The second this relationship got well and truly complicated, it would be a parade of dysfunction. It's not a will-they-or-won't-they, it's a they-won't-and-thank-god.

Underwhelming sitcom centers on platonic millennial BFFs.

Jan 16, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Besides being mean to each other, and themselves, Povitsky and Aflalo are great at throwing away character information through dialogue.

Jan 12, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

"Alone Together" skates very close to being too annoying, but never loses its appeal, because of the writing, of course, but also because Povitsky and Aflalo are fully credible at all times....

It's not that Povitsky and Aflalo aren't funny. They are. And some of the one-liners are fantastic...But overall, the show has a tedious vibe.

Jan 12, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, their vapid obsession with looking and being perfect quickly grows tiresome in the premiere, which has few laughs. Still, while the tone may be a little grating, the pair has good chemistry and timing.

It's a slyly ambitious show - and an especially odd fit for Freeform.

Jan 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The characters are hard to invest in, the relationship is really hard to invest in, and the show offers no narrative propulsion aside from their cutesy, vulgar dynamic.
