Critic Reviews for Living in Captivity Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

Murphy Brown creator Diane English seeks the comic possibilities of a black couple interacting with white neighbors in an affluent but warped neighborhood. She needs to keep looking. A disappointment.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

... a charmless and smarmy sitcom about three suburban couples.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

... dopey, hackneyed, unfunny brick of a Fox comedy.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

It seems to be written by people who just moved to Brentwood, post-O.J., and they can't believe the idyllic surroundings and how Orwellian they are. Which might have been interesting a decade or four ago.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Fox just pulled Captivity, but it may return later in the season. So the show's creators have some time to try investing its characters with both humor and humanity.

Jul 24, 2019 | Rating: D | Full Review…

"Living in Captivity" just isn't funny.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

The pilot has its share of funny, politically incorrect and crude moments.

Jul 24, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The strange thing about this uneven comedy of suburban eccentricity is that the least amusing character is the one obviously designed to get the biggest laughs.
