There's material and promise here. The show's quirky supporting characters already don't seem to be just caricatures who set up sex jokes.

This bitch has got some pop.

This tart and tangy comedy earns its attitude.

Unlike some of the more uneven odd-couple series that have premiered in recent years, Apartment 23 could turn into a trustworthy address for laughs.

Raunchy and at times genuinely funny, Apartment 23 is jam-packed with promise - and inconsistencies.

Get past the annoying theme song and hackneyed "updated lady Odd Couple" premise, and the writing is sharp and a little vicious. It was surprisingly ribald and black-hearted for network TV.

Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23 is severely lacking in wit, which essentially a show like this would need to survive.

Jan 11, 2019 | Full Review…

A brilliant, yet mismanaged disaster from the get-go.

Jan 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Although it bears a very typical sitcom premise, Don't Trust The B-- In Apartment 23 pilot episode was full of humor and I think that the show has a lot of potential, has long as it doesn't fall into the regular pifalls of sitcom television.

But this is no 30 Rock, which is sweet at its core despite being occasionally mean. There's no sweetness in Apartment 23. There are, however, some decent gags and great actors.

    I liked it. Escapist fun (and funny).
  • Jul 17, 2018
    enjoyably entertaining with a decent hit ratio, probably like 60%. surprisingly funny for what seems to be a show aimed at females (1 viewing)

    Wonderfully creative, fresh, disrespectful and adventurous. This comedy isn't for everyone but if you are into it, it is very well done.

    “Don’t Trust the B#### in Apartment 23” es una típica serie de opuestos, donde una persona ordenada y tranquila colisiona con un desordenado extrovertido, es buena, pero más que nada explota la popularidad de Krysten Ritter, tras su paso por “Breaking Bad”. La serie presenta a June Colburn (Dreama Walker), una chica estructurada que cumple su meta de trabajar en Wall Street dejando su hogar por New York, pero se ve perjudicada por el cierre de la firma por lo que se ve reducida a trabajar en una cafetería y a compartir cuarto para tener un techo hasta que vuelva a conseguir otro trabajo empresarial. Ahí conoce a Chloe (Krysten Ritter) que se introduce como la compañera ideal, pero resulta ser una cazadora de ingenuos, que expulsa a sus coinquilinos haciéndolos sentir incómodos luego de que paguen su alquiler. La interacción entre las protagonistas es buena, de a poco se va desarrollando una buena dinámica a lo largo de cada episodio, con buenos giros argumentales y un buen elenco secundario la tira proporciona un buen humor. A pesar de lo cliché que es la premisa de dos opuestos compartiendo una vivienda “Don’t Trust the B#### in Apartment 23” logra mantenerse fresca con su humor fuera de lo cotidiano, y la gran química de Krysten Ritter con James Van Der Beek.

    Exceptional performances make this show worth watching, even if it wasn't a good show too! The actual and full season of 13 episodes is so much better than this butchered 7 episode season. The season was aired out of order, and not fully, because it was supposed to be 13 episodes. The six from this season that they didn't air, were aired randomly throughout the next season. Actual episode order (by ep title): Season 1: Pilot Daddy's Girl Mean Girls Making Rent The Wedding The Scarlet Neighbor Whatever It Takes It's Just Sex The Leak Parent Trap Shitagi Nashi Bar Lies A Weekend in the Hamptons Season 2: A Reunion It's a Miracle Love and Monsters Sexy People Paris Teddy Trouble Monday June Dating Games The D The Seven Year Bitch Using People Ocupado The Original Bitch

    Snarky dialog and good acting make Don't trust the B- in Apartment 23 a neat comedy with turn-the-table snappy laughs all along - which sadly had to fell on cancellation after leaving a good spoonful of what it is.

    Incredible comedy. It failed because people suck, it's mean-spirited (this is a plus to me since it makes it funny / original), the title sucks and people judge shows by their titles, and ABC destroyed it's continuity by massively effing up the order episodes aired in. Few comedies make me laugh as much as this.
