Rel: Season 1 (2018-2019)



Critic Consensus: Rel has a talented star supported by a solid ensemble, but none of it's enough to disguise an ordinary sitcom that hits a series of generic beats.

Critic Reviews for Rel: Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7)

"Rel" may not have to grow to be a hit, but at least there's a hint of where it could go if it truly wants to set itself apart.

Diversity in prime-time is both laudable and necessary. But when this is the end result, it's better left undone. C'mon, Fox, do better. Do much, much better than this.

"Rel" feels like it's gone through the dreaded Network Comedy Blender rendering it "networkized," which means the setups are obvious, the payoffs conspicuous.
