The Kominsky Method: Season 1 (2018)

SEASON:

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Full of humor and heart, The Kominsky Method paints a surprisingly poignant -- if a little paint-by-numbers -- portrait of life and aging, elevated by two top-notch performances by legends Alan Arkin and Michael Douglas.

It's not that the pee talk isn't entertaining, per se. It's that the series tends to mistake it for the kind of ongoing plotting and narrative fodder that can sustain eight episodes.

The laughs, it is true, are of the genial variety and no funny bones will be endangered.

As Douglas and Arkin prove anew, old pros are still capable of shifting into gear and then humming along despite all those incumbent aches, pains and spikes in bathroom breaks.

Because "Kominsky" is so blue and so tin-eared, when it tries to draw close to anything resembling real human emotion, it emotionally founders then sinks without a trace.

Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin are an appealingly irascible odd couple in this uneven but enjoyable new half-hour comedy series.

No comedy streamed or on network or cable TV explores the loneliness, doubts, fears and ongoing sense of loss involved in aging like The Kominsky Method. That makes it extra special.

While the episodes are mostly fun, it is the warmth The Kominsky Method exudes through the friendship between Sandy and Norman that really makes the show work. It is like comfort food and comfort food demands bingeing.

It is worth checking out The Kominsky Method to see Douglas and Arkin, but the attraction is light at best.

Dec 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Michael Douglas is one of those actors who've become more interesting as they've got older, and he clearly revels in the part of Sandy Kominsky.
