Hank: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Hank: Season 1 (2009)



Critic Consensus: Kelsey Grammar's comedic gifts are wasted on Hank, a mix of unfunny gags and schmaltz that too often feels like a rehashed sitcom from the early 1980s.

For those expecting another Frasier-like comic tour-de-force, disappointment looms ahead.

Hardly any of this works well.

It's lazy, predictable and spectacularly tone-deaf.

September 23, 2009 | Full Review…

The jokes, the laugh track, and the performances seem more like throwback to 1980s sitcoms.

September 23, 2009 | Full Review…

It's a slight premise, and the odds of it morphing into a fresh, lively weekly adventure feel about the same. Slight.

September 23, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This isn't only Frasier, recast as a standard family sitcom. It's Green Acres.
