Critic Reviews for Martin: Season 1

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

What [Martin] lacks is wit, depending instead on Lawrence to do shtick. He overacts terribly, hammily mugging for the camera.

Martin is the latest in Fox's quest to find a series that can follow and be creatively compatible with its incredibly clever and funny The Simpsons... It misses by a long shot.

Homing in on the inevitable tensions, "Martin" and Mr. Lawrence are at their best.

Any given week's plot is nothing special; Lawrence, however, is. He doesn't just give trite jokes a spin, he turns ordinary words into laugh getters.
