Superior Donuts: Season 1 Reviews

February 2, 2017
Superior Donuts feels like the kind of sitcom that would have struck audiences as a cozy place to visit every week if it had premiered in the days before cable and streaming. As it is, it feels at once odd and stale.

As with so many sitcoms, the protagonists of Superior Donuts don't yet feel like living, breathing humans who've spent decades on the planet acquiring experiences and points of view.

The colorfully contrasted characters are still abundant, but the repartee is, for the most part, content to be merely snappy, not socially insightful.

Superior Donuts... assembles a lot of good talent, only to serve them up in a stale, warmed-over vehicle.

This is a new CBS multi-camera sitcom ...That means the jokes won't just arrive; each one will ricochet around the stage set like a pinball ball in a room of bumpers.

Aspires to a contemporary relevance - but manages only a weary crustiness.

Unfortunately, the laugh track is annoying, the jokes are often stale and the other characters are one-dimensional. If the writers serve fresher fare, Donuts might have a chance.

Superior Donuts has come out of the fryer flatter than a tortilla chip, no better or worse than any other CBS sitcom, which isn't saying much.
