Champions: Season 1 (2018)



Critic Consensus: Champions doesn't quite live up to its creators' comedic reputations, but a charming cast and good-natured approach to sensitive issues make it a worthwhile watch.

Vince is living every bachelor's dream. He owns the fifth largest gym in Brooklyn, dates an endless string of beautiful women and lives with his dumb, lovable brother Matthew. But Vince's simple life gets complicated fast when his high school fling Priya (Mindy Kaling) unexpectedly drops off their 15-year-old son Michael so he can attend a city school for super-talented kids. How will Vince handle this wildly ambitious and hilariously witty teenager? Well, somehow he'll have to work it out.

Surprisingly, it's a co-creation of Mindy Kaling and Charlie Grandy, who also worked together on The Office and The Mindy Project. So quite a bit better was expected from the three episodes made available for review.

Good-natured, eager to please and not as funny as its pedigree says it should be.

Skip it after episode three... Overall, the pilot was not funny, but there were some laugh-out-loud moments that made me see the potential it has to be something funny.

In Michael, 'Champions' boasts the rare gay lead character of color on a network TV show...It's a show with a lot of heart and sharp sense of humor.

We're hoping Kaling and Grandy get things together faster than they did on The Mindy Project. We don't think NBC is going to give them the same amount of time to figure out what the show is that Fox gave to Mindy.

Great gags, fun characters on inclusive sitcom throwback.
