January 7, 2019
'I Feel Bad' is a foot forward for South Asian representation, but steps backward in other regards.

Female-led comedy has some language, mixed messages.

Even though Emet doesn't see it, she's enough. And her show is OK.

Many sitcoms find their feet over the course of their first season. I Feel Bad starts with a strong grasp on its tone, characters, and voice, putting it miles ahead of many other comedies.

Don't get too hung up on those superficial blemishes and it can be graded on a curve as one of the fall's more promising broadcast offerings, a comedy with several important things going for it and some flaws that feel fixable.

Why did it all fall apart? In short, I Feel Bad plays it too safe.

Despite the talent involved, I Feel Bad isn't at all funny. And it's not daring either, which may be even worse.
October 5, 2018
As of its first two episodes, I Feel Bad does not seem to know how to make comedy-or even simply story-out of its central anxieties of identity.

The result is homogeneous and bland.

That women like Emet exist is beyond question, but most people would rather hang themselves from a hat rack in their office cubicle than engage with them. I Feel Bad's title will seem like profound prophecy to anybody who watches.

I wasn't into it. There were so many moments where I was supposed to laugh, and I just didn't...

That Amy Poehler helps produce adds a little verve to the thing, but it ultimately gets bogged down in network-required sex jokes.
September 24, 2018
When it's not burying us in an avalanche of creaky sitcom clichés, it's creeping us out with inappropriate sex jokes. ... All I could think while watching is: They cancelled Great News for this??

The biggest problem is that they're not funny - even with Amy Poehler as an executive producer.

I Feel Bad has appealing leads in the two younger parents, but is still trying to find a solid footing for itself amid some amusing moments now and then.

It's rare for a show to quite so clearly have one element that works so strongly against the rest of the series.
