Tv Season Info

In this comedy series, four thirty-something adults who fear personal relationships are thrown into each other's lives when a series of unrelated events forces them to share a townhouse. Caryn (Becki Newton) is an anxious dental hygienist who suddenly calls off her engagement and subsequently moves in with her friend, Zara (Meera Rohit Kumbhani), a struggling angst-filled artist. Simultaneously, Stosh (Zachary Knighton), a sleazy womanizer, loses his job because of his playboy ways. As a result, he moves in with his cousin Eric (Nate Torrence), an immature toll-booth attendant left on his own after the sudden passing of his father. Susie Essman and David Wain hold recurring parts of Caryn's mother and ex-fiancé.

Critic Reviews for Weird Loners: Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (11)

A single-camera comedy with no laugh track, Weird Loners is a pleasant enough viewing experience in the three episodes provided for preview.

Weird Loners is a prison sentence.

More often than not, the clichéd characters drag the action down. There's enough real weirdness out there. Why do TV shows keep faking it?

Unlike Fox's The Last Man On Earth, there's no thrill of discovery here. Weird Loners instead re-shuffles the aimless singles deck before falling well short of coming up aces.

What is problematic about Weird Loners is that it pigeonholes its characters in a way that is going to be difficult to overcome.

April 2, 2015 | Rating: 2.4/5 | Full Review…

Weird Loners is not so fresh as its title might presume. Its protagonists are more familiar than strange, and their stories are clichéd, beginning with the premise that these lovable misfits become "friends".
