Marlon: Season 1 Reviews

August 16, 2017
As impressive as Wayans' skillset is, Marlon is too much Marlon.

It over-blows everything in service to a star who doesn't know how or when to stop.

The strongest impression left by the two-episode premiere is that Wayans' stand-up act is probably hilarious, and that he shouldn't be wasting his time in this loud, broad sitcom.

The comedy doesn't take off as it might have were it not trying too hard to be a family comedy.

Marlon is trying to co-parent his children while navigating an amicable divorce... That reinterpretation of the foundation of the family sitcom makes Marlon a refreshing take on family dynamics. Everything else about it feels pretty standard.

Although Marlon may not come close in quality and sophistication to, say, Modern Family, or even The Middle, it's modestly enjoyable and a smart move on NBC's part.

For all of it's modern touches, Marlon is entertaining in the same way that some of my favorite sitcoms of the '90s were.

Ultimately, Marlon will appeal to Wayans' fans, but folks looking for a unique comedy won't find it here.

It's silly and sweet and depends entirely on the appeal and the comedic chops of its star, which, thankfully, are considerable.

Marlon is-well, ordinary.
