Cast & Crew
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.
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.
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.
That post-Seinfeld slot sets high standards, and Lea Thompson's Caroline is no Elaine.
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.
What Caroline doesn't have, initially, is a script that's either credible or humorous.
Lea Thompson turns in a winning perf as cartoonist Caroline in this sophisticated yet loopy sitcom.
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.
Features some smart, if uneven, writing. There are several laugh-out-loud lines. There also are some roll-your-eyes situations.
Another attempt at replicating the success of Friends and Seinfeld that fell far short of the mark.
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.
