Go On: Season 1 (2012-2013)



Critic Consensus: Go On's ensemble cast is terrific, but the show's focus is stretched very thin between a crowded stable of characters.

Silveri aims so hard to please that he ends up missing the target entirely.

Go On had better do more to support Perry or this will go down as a terrible waste of his talent.

September 11, 2012 | Full Review…

Go On gives Matthew Perry fresh material that suits his style: bemused, exasperated, impatient, quick, droll, hiding something.

September 11, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Beneath its estimable comic trappings, Go On is something larger: a meditation on what makes life worth living.

September 11, 2012 | Full Review…

The ensemble is talented, but there's no heart.

September 11, 2012 | Full Review…

Go On obviously won't be off the charts ratings-wise, as Friends was for most of its run. It might settle in, though, with Perry still a solidly capable comedic actor looking to nest a while.
