The Boys Are Back: Season 1 Reviews

Feb 3, 2021
Though the premise is five years late, Pleshette and Linden make dandy parents. Considering The Nanny boasts much less, this could be a hit. But don't expect originality.

Linden and Pleshette are comic pros. Their presence, and their presence alone, is reason enough to give their "Boys" a second look.

Somehow someone has made a show with two easy-to-like stars that is impossible to watch.

This sitcom goes heavy on the "sit" but somebody forgot to put in the "com."

Concept of three generations under the same roof is hardly new, but the working of it should be. Director James Burrows uses the oddities of the characters with a fine hand.
Jul 26, 2019
The premise is mundane and familiar.
Jul 26, 2019
The show isn't aggressively terrible, and it can claim two certifiable sitcom stalwarts -- Suzanne Pleshette and Hal Linden -- in the lead roles, but the premise is off-putting.
Jul 26, 2019
The Boys Are Back is an almost sinful squandering of the talents of [Suzanne] Pleshette and [Hal] Linden.
