Critic Reviews for Uncle Buck Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8)

ABC's Uncle Buck, finally getting on the air a year after the pilot was first sent to critics, isn't the worst show you'll see this year. It's not even the least-funny comedy. It's just unnecessary.

How you like Uncle Buck will depend on how you respond to weird grandpas -- on TV, not in real life.

Epps has his moments, the kids are well-cast and there are a few good lines. But you won't be missing much if your Tuesday nights are already reserved.

A familiar sitcom that has occasional laughs, but won't send many rushing to set a season pass.

Unfortunately, the property's latest iteration doesn't provide a satisfactory or substantive answer on why Uncle Buck needed to come back to television.

There's only so much the actors can do to overcome the subpar writing.

Jun 15, 2016 | Full Review…

Uncle Buck can be counted on for Mike Epps being there to draw chuckles even when the joke isn't that funny. So while it's not great, it's also not terrible, and it sits right there in the middle.

Uncle Buck isn't nearly as reprehensible as I worried it might be.

Jun 15, 2016 | Full Review…

The new sitcom isn't bad, it's just bland; low-impact, lightweight, and nothing to write (or tweet) home about. It's too bad for Epps, who does his best with a limited role.

Uncle Buck is messier and broader than most. Creators Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley offer certain updates - a subplot involves mild sexting - but the basic premise has all the nuance of a folding chair.
