Critic Consensus: The narcissism of social media is no less annoying on TV than it is on a computer screen or iPhone, but Selfie's leads raise hopes for something more substantial.

I'm cautiously optimistic that there is a very entertaining show lurking beneath its shallow and annoying surface.
There's the usual assortment of quirky neighbors/co-workers, none of whom register as more than caricatures in the pilot, and the social media buzzwords sprinkled with abandon throughout the pilot comes off as hashtag desperate.
Karen Gillan and John Cho are likable - and an example of this season's commendable color-blind casting - but the premise wears thin.
It's a charming dance, and [Karen] Gillan and [John] Cho play it with the proper froth.
By the end of Tuesday's premiere, the opening puke-fest is almost out of mind.
