Critic Reviews for Welcome to the Captain Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (13)

The show, filmed like a movie, has no laugh track or studio audience. That approach allows the daffiness to unfold in a low-key, realistic manner. The show doesn't push, a relief in a rotten era for sitcoms.

It's got some charm and enough amusingly oddball moments to make it all pretty bearable.

"Welcome to the Captain" strains to be edgy and quirky and cool and young.

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

"The Captain" is going to need more than Hollywood jokes and a hotel full of oblivious characters setting up each other's one-liners if it's going to sail.

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Too many of the characters are one-dimensional... Even when [Jeffrey] Tambor is onscreen, you'll pine for "Arrested Development."

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The Captain has a great facade, but it's filled with people who will make you keep checking the real estate listings.

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

"Welcome to the Captain" is a disappointingly flat and laugh-free affair.

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

There's no pushing the humor here, or ramming of jokes down the throat. The characters simply flit by, little bonbons of nuttiness that we observe in transit.

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

There's nothing especially groundbreaking going on here, but Welcome to the Captain does have a certain breezy charm to it... and the broadly drawn characters still manage to deftly straddle that fine line between eccentric and annoying.

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

It is not so terrible as to merit ridicule, although some might decide this is being overly generous. In any case, it falls well short of being entertaining enough to recommend viewing.

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

For all the lameness that happens at the Captain, the most unforgivable is how this show wastes the talents of [Jeffrey] Tambor.

Oct 2, 2019 | Rating: D | Full Review…

The show suffers from the clichés and stereotyping that seem endemic to sitcoms.
