Critic Reviews for Andy Barker, P.I. Season 1

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (14)

Absent a laugh track and filmed in wide screen, Andy Barker fits the overall blueprint of latter day NBC comedies. But it's just not as smartly funny as The Office, My Name Is Earl, Scrubs or the series it's subbing for.

When I say Andy Barker, P.I. is a sweet little show, I mean it's like cream in your coffee. The exotic bite you seek is still there, only toned down so you can better savor its distinctive flavor.

[Andy] Richter's silent-comedy expressions and vulnerability hold it all together, and the mysteries are entertaining enough to work. If Andy Barker, P.I. doesn't succeed, it won't be because the show doesn't delight.

The show's an exotically absurd creature, but it derives, from its hero, a strong middle-American backbone.

If Jeff Lebowski were not a shaggy stoner of uncertain employment but rather a C.P.A. with a round head and square personality, he would be Barker, played by Andy Richter in this 2007 sitcom.

May 8, 2020 | Full Review…

At times, that doughy affability threatens to become a punchline, but [Andy] Richter draws it out just enough to be funny without being distracting.

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The cases [Andy] Barker tackles during this six-episode trial run are well-mined for laughs.

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

It's all insane and unrealistic, and it contributes to the zany fun.

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

If Andy Richter Controls the Universe was too strange for a mainstream audience, and Quintuplets was too toothless, Andy Barker, P.I. strikes a right balance.

Oct 1, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Undoubtedly, many will feel as if they are in on the jokes and embrace [Andy] Richter as a way-out-of-his-element private eye in a sitcom that is an unusual blend of over-the-top farce and wink-wink humor. The question is, how many will get it?

Oct 1, 2019 | Full Review…

The sheer goofiness of their performances makes it the kind of sitcom some people will evangelize about.

Oct 1, 2019 | Full Review…

[Andy Barker, P.I.] has a family of decent and likable characters. But in the end, I wanted to laugh much more than I did.
