Critic Reviews for Better Off Ted: Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7)

With this cast, and the writing of Fresco and company, I expect Ted season two to again hit the heights of that first season.

It sails into its second season tonight as one of the best sitcoms on television.

With crisp writing and a stellar ensemble that improves episode by episode over the course of the first season and a strong season-two premiere, Better Off Ted deserves the second chance ABC has given it.

All we ask is bring back the quirkiness and the strangely absent Veridian Dynamics commercial.

Hopefully the critically acclaimed show will get more eyeballs this season because the simple premise - ethical employees working for an unethical mega-corporation - is easily relatable to so many people.

December 9, 2009 | Rating: 7.9/10 | Full Review…

This wasn't exactly a crackerjack start to the second season, though it was plenty funny in my book, and even contained some kernels of truth.
