With all the serial killers and groups of adults who clearly hate each other crowding up the television landscape, it's always nice to see a show as openly optimistic and cathartic as Enlisted.
February 7, 2020
I think Enlisted is a worthy addition to anyone's viewing schedule and deserves a chance, despite its Friday night death sentence slot.

Incredibly funny and goofy, only to turn around and hit you with an emotional gut punch that you're somehow never ready for, even if you know it's coming.

It's not really funny, and there are few jokes any funnier. Since it's been relegated to Friday night, it's obvious Fox hasn't much hope for Enlisted, and it shouldn't.

There ought to be a place even in a pacifist's heart for a show as warm and playful as this one.
January 21, 2014
For me, Enlisted's charm is its ability to organically blend serious plotlines with goofball humour, and to generate laughs out of the most innocuous subjects.
January 15, 2014
Compared with its network competition, Enlisted is a qualified success. Fox should give it time to earn a promotion to a better time slot.
January 15, 2014
The soldiers' incompetence remains Enlisted's go-to gag, even as it gestures toward the complexities of family dynamics, whether blood-related or more broadly, in the military as family.

It's a high jinks-heavy but psychology-driven show that wants to please a general audience while also seeming halfway credible to viewers who've served in the armed forces or know somebody who has.
January 10, 2014
There's a good energy to their chemistry, and the first episodes of Enlisted crackles along agreeably enough.
January 10, 2014
Enlisted is sweet and funny (Young especially is a riot here).
January 10, 2014
It's a surprisingly touching and layered comedy that's wildly entertaining.

The show is silly, sweet, sad, and ultimately life-affirming without ever descending into maudlin slop.
January 10, 2014
Even when you're not laughing out loud at the clever one-liners, and there are plenty, you'll be smiling at Enlisted's overflowing charm.

Enlisted's gotten off to a good start - helping us all realize that, despite careworn plots, being funny is as simple as the writing.

It might be easier to enjoy Enlisted if it were clear in what era, or universe, it's supposed to be taking place.

I didn't laugh much at Enlisted... but maybe you will.

It works surprisingly well as sort of a Community in camouflage fronted.

I wasn't expecting much from Enlisted based on the Fox promos, but it's immediately engaging and funny and makes you want to watch more as this world grows and the comedy increases its potential, much in the manner of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
January 10, 2014
Enlisted earns its modest Stripes (a clear influence here) with unexpected sweetness amid the wacky shenanigans.
