    Oof, that was Rotten.

    Meh, it passed the time.

Bland, harmless, forgettable.

It's remotely possible, perhaps, that slews of pre- and early teen girls will be content to merely gaze upon Cooper for a half-hour's time each week. But that's assuming they even know what CBS is. Nah.

Happy Together may not become an iconic sitcom, but it's already a pretty good source for happiness.

By two or three episodes in, Happy Together's entire premise had become just an amorphous shrug and the series was just a group of actors trying really hard with nothing to play.

Packed with sight gags, bad puns and lame punchlines. Some of them work, some don't, but mostly the cast sticks the landings. The series feels most natural when it focuses on the interplay between the three leads and doesn't force jokes.

Happy Together is probably a hit in America, but it doesn't travel well. It should go down with the ship somewhere off the coast of Hawaii.

May 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Just watch the way Wayans commands Happy Together's live audience. Multi-cam's trademark wide shots capture every one of his hilariously articulated moves, making him a modern day Dick Van Dyke...

Nov 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Happy Together abides by all of the typical tropes one expects from these types of shows. This includes the groans that accompany almost all the punchlines.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The pilot felt rushed for its 30-minute time slot. It felt as if it didn't really give us a background of any of the characters other than a quick glimpse of their lifestyle.

Oct 4, 2018 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

Wayans Jr. and Stevens West have impeccable chemistry together, and in its own way, the sitcom is something of a statement on marriage, about how to find ways to keep it interesting while also learning how to navigate the waves together.

Oct 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Bland odd-couple sitcom bolstered by two great leads.

Oct 3, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Damon Wayans would seem the cooler one than new tenant Felix Mallard. But what comedy there is lives in the brief appearances of Chris Parnell and Stephnie Weir.

    This show has grown on me. It wasn't really that good in the begining.
  • Nov 13, 2018
    i love it, very entertaining and fun to watch

    This is a very strong ensemble! There's a lot of talent, and I especially love Claire's parents.

    When I first read about this show I thought it sounded stupid and wouldn't last a day. Then I watched it. It's not deep (nor is intended to me I assume) but it VERY enjoyable. I've always liked "Baby Wayans", but The chemistry between all of actors is excellent.. I'm not sure how far they can extend the premise, but teh writers seem clever so maybe it has legs. In the meantime I look forward to the light-hearted and enjoyable show.

    Absolutely the worst show ever.

    This show is like a throwback to the fun sitcoms of the ‘90s. I love that the couple actually like each other and it’s a great departure from the typical “dumb husband, patient wife” formula.

    Love the show - been a longtime fan of Amber Stevens West and she is super in this show. The characters are all very likable, and I can't wait to see what they'll do each week. Definitely worth watching! I also think it is kind of cool that it is based on real life - Harry Styles.

    Come on guys- this is totally a cute show! I read the professional reviews and let’s not overthink it. It’s a sitcom- made me laugh and it’s cute story! My fav so far of the season. Personally - I need some harmless laughs these days.

    This show is so fun and the chemistry between Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber West is amazing!
