Critic Reviews for Running Wilde Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (18)

While the show isn't must-see TV, it isn't must-change-the-channel either.

There's not a whiff of actual life here, no grounding character. There's just frantic, false and tiresome.

Instead of a sparkling gem, Running Wilde is a rusty lug nut.

Sep 21, 2010 | Full Review…

Running Wilde gets off to an unpromising start by creating a complicated, tortured premise that many labored minutes later delivers us to a simple rom-com.

Sep 21, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Wilde completes a one-hour, laugh track-free, absurdist block that gives Fox its best chance at comedy success since The Bernie Mac Show and Malcolm in the Middle.

"Running Wilde," is a sitcom that you want to like more than you actually do, unfortunately.

The struggling storyline, clumsy performances, and underdeveloped characters will make you want to run wildly away from this program.

Keri Russell and Will Arnett are back. On TV. Together. In the hands of Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz. You don't have to be a master chemist to know what that all adds up to: TV MAGIC.

It has its moments of absurd comedy and a promising set-up, leaving room for improvement in future episodes.

Sep 21, 2010 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

The modern kind of bad sitcom, with the acidic surreal jokes and the multiple flashbacks and the voice-overs and the pseudo-sophisticated political comedy.

Audience Reviews for Running Wilde: Season 1

Loved this show, I wish there was more of it.

The dialogue is clever enough and the actors enjoyable enough to compensate for the soft-glove nature of this upper-class satire.
