[U]npredictable writing, sublime casting, razor-sharp timing, and not a mean bone in anybody's body.
Sullivan & Son has wisely over-populated its pub with a surprisingly high-caliber, better-than-usual ensemble of misfits.
It's amazing how funny a sitcom can be when it doesn't spend its whole 22 minutes lunging for the next sex joke.
Sullivan is certainly more watchable than TBS's earlier summer effort, the desultory Men at Work.
The show has an old-fashioned, inviting warmth, not unlike any neighborhood bar where "everybody knows your name."
