Critic Reviews for The Grinder Season 1

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (29)

Rob Lowe and Fred Savage play brothers, which by itself requires a massive suspension of disbelief. Savage's Stewart Anderson is a lawyer, and Lowe's Dean Anderson plays one on TV. WORLDS COLLIDE.

[The stars are] an odd couple with potential.

There's a strong supporting cast, including Mary Elizabeth Ellis and Natalie Morales.

Rob Lowe exudes clueless charisma as Dean Sanderson, an actor fresh off eight top-rated seasons of The Grinder.

The premise isn't unfamiliar, but Lowe and Fred Savage make terrific brothers, and lots of little twists keep the comedy coming.

The Grinder is clever. It has a great time sending up the clichés of lawyer shows, while also reveling in them.

Lowe and Savage have a relaxed brotherly chemistry, and the show has fun playing with legal-drama conventions.

It's probably the best half hour network comedy of the season.

Sep 22, 2015 | Full Review…

It works because, instead of running from them, it embraces and celebrates the conventions of broadcast TV. It doesn't try to be a cable series. In a strange way this season, that makes it the cool show.

The pilot has its moments.
