Critic Reviews for Web Therapy Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (9)

Ambiently amusing but generally inert.

Jul 19, 2011 | Full Review…

The cameos often are amusing, and so is Kudrow.

Jul 19, 2011 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Kudrow and Garber, particularly, bring such a twinkly effortlessness as actors that one can forgive the more stilted moments.

Jul 19, 2011 | Rating: B | Full Review…

It's not just that Kudrow has failed to find a vehicle for her comedic talents since Friends; it's that the two-dimensional, often insufferable characters she's created are largely to blame for the failure of those projects in the first place.

Jul 19, 2011 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

While the project had its devotees in its original form, the first four legs of a 10-episode flight feel stilted and claustrophobic.

Jul 19, 2011 | Full Review…

A visually uninteresting half-hour filled with rambling conversations, as the actors struggle to advance what little story there is while slipping in the all-too-occasional funny remark.

Jul 19, 2011 | Full Review…

While Web Therapy is certainly clever and occasionally funny, it lacks both the nerve and verve of The Comeback.

Jul 19, 2011 | Full Review…

Innovative and hilarious.

Jul 19, 2011 | Full Review…

The fine cast, both regulars and guest stars, elevates the proceedings considerably.

Jul 19, 2011 | Full Review…

It's great to see Kudrow back on TV, but this visually static and comically stunted gimmick wears thin pretty quickly.

Jul 19, 2011 | Full Review…

Web Therapy allows its characters to talk through the jokes, rewarding viewers who pay close attention.

Audience Reviews for Web Therapy: Season 1

    Fresh and hilarious.
  • Jul 26, 2016
    Amazing how a show entirely about a skype conversation can be so hilarious!
  • Aug 09, 2015
    I've watched the first 3 episodes so far, and I was half way through the 2nd episode when I realized that a little bit of Fiona Wallice (Lisa Kudrow) goes a long way. I did appreciated the guest stars though, especially Lily Tomlin as her mom. I'll give it a few more episodes, but this is not a show that’s meant for binge watching.
