SEASON:

Season 1
Those Who Can't

Critics Consensus

Those Who Can't is sporadically funny, but its attempts at light-hearted comedy are undone by derivative writing and a crude, somewhat depressing tone.

Audience Reviews for Those Who Can't: Season 1

  • Jan 25, 2021
    Once again the critics are out of touch. Very funny show.
  • Jan 10, 2021
    Every time this comes on I feel like I'm watching the intro to a ‘Community' themed porno.
  • Nov 10, 2016
    Ben, Adam, and Andrew knock it out of the park acting like high school teachers that are always in some crazy situation. Not everything is funny, but I think for the most part, the jokes that do work are really funny. As a former 5th grade teacher, Those Who Can't is very relatable. Hats off to all of the writers and actors on the show. TruTV was smart enough to know a good thing when they saw it which is Amazon's loss. @benroy @TruTV

    Love this show! All the characters are quirky & funny. It makes me laugh out loud each episode. Looking forward to season 2!
  • Feb 12, 2016
    Those Who Can't is an sometimes hilarious and smart SITCOM run down by its moody tone and overly crude humor.
