Critics Consensus

Schooled's freshman outing struggles to differentiate itself from its predecessor -- though its sweetly silly sensibilities and stellar cast may be enough for viewers looking for a good-natured sitcom.

There's possibly some potential here. But the only episode of Schooled made available for review neither rings the bell -- or answers it.

As it stands, Schooled doesn't offer any convincing reasons to watch other than the crossovers from an already familiar world.

There is an overall sweetness to the pilot that suggests "Schooled" could become a good-natured ensemble workplace sitcom like "Parks & Recreation." But the cast needs filling out first.

Feb 13, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

"Schooled" may well relax as it goes on, but its first episode feels painfully strained, pushing us first to see Lainey as humorously unfit for her job and, within 20 minutes, perhaps better-suited than anyone could have predicted.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Rough edges are quickly sanded, and yet the players are good - Meadows, especially, seems more valuable to comedy with every new role; they make it possible to look past the homilies.

Schooled is still having trouble finding its replacement for the heart and sense of family that make the original series work.

Jan 9, 2019 | Full Review…

To be honest, I have come to prefer the '90s spin-off of The Goldbergs to The Goldbergs itself. It's family-oriented, and very much has the throwback feel of a '90s sitcom with valuable lessons learned in each episode.

Apr 17, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

As for what the Goldbergs clan is up to in the future, we don't get a lot of hints. But a fun throwaway gag reveals that classmate Johnny Atkins is now the school janitor, which feels right.

90s-set Goldbergs spin-off doesn't break much new ground.

Jan 15, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Schooled takes a while to get going, but it looks like AJ Michalka can carry this sequel quite well.

Jan 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The grade is out on that, but "Schooled" at its goofiest recognizes the value of teachers.

    Has the same feel as the Goldbergs and brings me back to the 90's. Each episode has something in it that reminds me of my teens.

    I loved this show! It gives you a real sense of nastgia for us who grew up in the 90s. I think its awesome that they decided to utilize Laney as the lead character, who was amazing on Goldbergs, she doing a terrific job keeping the show in the the rehlm of GOLDBERGS, while also making the show its own. Shes was always too strong to be a secondary character. Laneys relationships with Coach Meller, Chinas and the principle, played by an iconic Tim meadows, all comes together seemlessly to creat an awesome and comfortable network feel good and family friendly comedy.

    This is a fantastic show and very funny. This is one of my favorite new tv shows of 2019. The writing is great. The cast is terrific especially Aj Michalka, Bryan Callen, Tim Meadows, Brett Dier, Rachel Crow, Lennon Parham, and Christian Gehring. Even though it was a great show it got kind of repetitive after a while.

    Love it! Callen is the man! the humor is not what I was expecting on a typical network television show... it's a lot edgier. am actually looking forward to next wednesday!
