Caroline in the City

Critics Consensus

Caroline in the City is agreeable entertainment thanks to Lea Thompson's screwball charm and the crack comedic timing of Malcolm Gets, although this cartoonist sitcom seems hesitant to draw outside the lines.

Critic Reviews for Caroline in the City Season 1

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (9)

Caroline in the City has enough strengths to grow and prosper in such a great time slot. Lovely Lea should win many fans. But it would help if Del could be drawn out of the picture.

Jun 13, 2019 | Full Review…

It just leads to borderline fun. But Thompson has the blithe manner to push things over the borderline, to take so-so material and make it sparkle.

Jun 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Caroline lacks the quirkiness and edge of its fellow NBC sitcoms. It also depends on the sort of hoary comedy devices that have made decades of TV sitcoms embarrassing to watch.

Jun 13, 2019 | Full Review…

That post-Seinfeld slot sets high standards, and Lea Thompson's Caroline is no Elaine.

Jun 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The Gets character almost walks off with the show with a combination of biting sarcasm and underlying loneliness. And, of course, there are pop-culture references to spare.

Jun 13, 2019 | Full Review…

What Caroline doesn't have, initially, is a script that's either credible or humorous.

Jun 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Lea Thompson turns in a winning perf as cartoonist Caroline in this sophisticated yet loopy sitcom.

Jun 13, 2019 | Full Review…

With his wit and cutting one-liners, Malcom Getz's performance as Richard often steals the show, but it's Thompson's Caroline that leaves a lasting impression.

Jun 13, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Features some smart, if uneven, writing. There are several laugh-out-loud lines. There also are some roll-your-eyes situations.

Jun 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Another attempt at replicating the success of Friends and Seinfeld that fell far short of the mark.

Jun 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The producers say they wanted to create a series about a "quirky, engaging, flawed and honest" woman. They've succeeded on that count, as well as serving up some of the most sophisticated dialogue in prime time.

Jun 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Though the show lacks the inspired cohesiveness of classic sitcoms like Cheers or Seinfeld, it is bright, brisk and well-played.
