Critic Reviews for Friends With Better Lives Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (12)

The show seems to have little to say. It probably won't make many new friends.

Top Critic

The humor is decidedly caustic and surprisingly smutty. This might work as a cable comedy, where they could be explicit. On a network, it just seems insolently self-satisfied.

Mar 31, 2014 | Full Review…

The cast feels solid, and likable, jelling swiftly.

Top Critic

For now it's pretty much something you wouldn't wish on your best friends.

Top Critic

While it may have dwindled in its later years, How I Met Your Mother surely deserves a better successor than this tepid buddy comedy.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a telling thing when the most clever thing about a new show is its title.

Apr 15, 2014 | Full Review…

Bawdy but bland sitcom recalls other, better ensembles.

Apr 15, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This comedy attempts to replicate the "How I Met Your Mother" formula-- the comeback of a young actor, a group of friends that includes some long-term couples etc.-- but fails miserably.

Apr 2, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

A generic three-camera sitcom that attempts to capture the lightning in a bottle that was Friends. However, its whitewashed cast, conventional jokes and unoriginal premise keep it from being anything other than another failed copycat.

Mar 31, 2014 | Rating: 4.5/10 | Full Review…

Friends With... may be more insulting than usual coming after a nine-year series that was better by some measure in retreading the same material.
