Amusing initially, tedious ultimately.

Brockmire still has its appeals: As the title character, Hank Azaria brings that same level of verbal versatility and comedic bona fides that Bill Hader and Fred Armisen bring to their program.

As the episodes go on, Brockmire starts to feel like a real person rather than a caricature of a baseball personality and the show begins to blossom.

Apr 4, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Brockmire gives its two leads showcases they've more than earned.

Apr 7, 2017 | Full Review…

You'd think it would run dry of ideas right away, but it doesn't, and the series is as welcome as night games.

Apr 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Brockmire is fresh, funny, and winning. It has good jokes, good characters, and a surprising melancholy streak.

Apr 5, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I don't know how long the premise will hold up, but it begins with a lead-off hit and scores multiple runs.

Apr 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Dirty, naughty, yet surprisingly sweet, this redemption comedy worms its way under your skin with super-sharp gags and lovable characters.

Apr 5, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

If you loved the baseball film Major League but always wished Bob Uecker's broadcaster character had been darker and more bawdy, this is your show.

Apr 4, 2017 | Full Review…

Who needs realism when absurdity is so funny?

Apr 4, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

I reached the finale and was surprised at how much I wanted to see more from a character I initially thought couldn't sustain more than five minutes.

Apr 4, 2017 | Full Review…

It's one part sports inspiration story, another part Lifetime movie about finding love in a small town, but mostly it's an assured, character-driven comedy, with a kind of raw humor that's less vulgar than it is painfully intimate.

    A breath of fresh air on an otherwise bloated, unfunny TV landscape. Keep it Brockmire!

    Awesome show.... must watch!

    I dislike most sitcoms but this is a rare exception. It's brave, funny, raw and real. LOVED the abortion in Episode Six. FINALLY - a television portrayal of a woman deciding to have an abortion and isn't struck by lightning for it.
