Critic Reviews for B Positive Season 1

A charmer.

Nov 3, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It's almost a given by now that any Chuck Lorre sitcom will be cleverly cast and sharply written, with snappy one-liners offset by a smattering of heartfelt sincerity.

Nov 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Thanks to its stars, B Positive earns mildly favorable scores at the outset, even if the title, as sitcom grades go, would be a bit too positive.

Nov 6, 2020 | Full Review…

In Ashford's hands, even Gina's most basic lines get a smart delivery, and she allows just enough genuine vulnerability peek through that the character becomes the show's most intriguing by a mile.

Nov 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Shows like this tend to ripen with time, so that, even if the writing never substantially matures, the characters do; they get real, like Pinocchio. Whether it has time, only time will tell.

Nov 5, 2020 | Full Review…

B Positive is very much designed to function in a mode similar to Mom, where some episodes can be schtick-y and full of easy punchlines, but the show is still able to shift gears into emotional, borderline dramatic episodes.

Nov 5, 2020 | Full Review…

We're recommending B Positive mostly on the strength of the cast and the ability of Lorre and his showrunners to make the adjustments they need to find the show's sweet spot.

Nov 6, 2020 | Full Review…

It's about time that someone gave Tony-winning spitfire Annaleigh Ashford a lead role that takes full advantage of her madcap personality and offbeat comic timing... Ashford is warm, wacky, larger and weirder than life.

Nov 5, 2020 | Full Review…

What makes the sitcom stand out are all the comedy chops that Thomas Middleditch ("Silicon Valley") and Annaleigh Ashford ("Masters of Sex"), who wring laughs out of every scene they're in.

Nov 5, 2020 | Full Review…

Given these episodes - and Lorre's track record - it looks like "B Positive" is going to be around for a while.

Nov 3, 2020 | Full Review…

It has an admittedly odd premise and does fall into certain CBS sitcom pitfalls along the way, but it's redeemed by stars Thomas Middleditch and Annaleigh Ashford, who make a stellar comedic duo right away.

Nov 3, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The B Positive pilot is decent enough as CBS sitcoms go. It doesn't show the promise of The Big Bang Theory pilot but it's not as bad as plenty of other CBS's past sitcoms.

Audience Reviews for B Positive: Season 1

    Can I not give this less than 1/2 a star????????????????????????????? What a waste of a leading actor!
  • Nov 30, 2020
    The show is hilarious while being deeply moving. THIS is my new fave Lorry comedy, especially since Mom lost Anna Faris
  • Nov 22, 2020
    As with many of Chuck Lorre's shows, B Positive struggles at first to find its footing. There so many characters being introduced in episodes 1 and 2, not enough time is given to really get to know any of them. As of episode 3 things are starting to look more solid, however. The cast of actors, crossing several generations and genre, is unquestionably exceptional. As more time is given to the characters, they are starting to establish themselves and mesh together. Throw in the bold and captivating opening animation, and this series is starting to show great promise. The jury is still out, but this looks like another hit for Chuck and his team.

    It's a sweet show. Some funny lines and a nice premise.
  • Nov 15, 2020
    B Positive is magnificent! Thomas Middleditch and Annaleigh Ashford are the most greatest duos in this sitcom.
  • Nov 14, 2020
    Kinda funny but leans very liberal and as a person that has kidney failure virtually nothing is even near realistic and noone and i mean NOONE I've met at dialysis center acts like this around family and friends
  • Nov 11, 2020
