    The oddest thing about The Odd Couple is that it took Perry, Lennon, Bibb, Lindsay Sloane, Dave Foley, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Wendell Pierce and wasted every molecule of their combined talents.

    ABC's new comedy Mixology is vile.

    We're exploiting [the struggle of the poor] a lot. The Briefcase does it in a clear and methodical way.... The Briefcase plays into this class anxiety by setting up the classic American pastime of figuring out in what ways these people are being poor wrong.

    Not a single scene feels authentic, even if we excuse the overexplanations we often see in comedy pilots. This show is not provocative. It is not a conversation-starter, it is not thoughtful, it is not sharp, it is not enlightening.

    It's a show that confuses loudness with funniness. Jeong himself screams every line, and the studio audience howls back, particularly when Jeong does his faux-rapper voice. It's crass and phony, and everything people say they hate about multi-camera comedies.
