    This eccentric romantic comedy deserves a chance to survive.

    It is snappy, and funny enough when it needs to be.

    The show may have potential but seems to be just trashy jokes and concepts that pass as entertainment today. I watch out of boredom really, and to for long. Full Review »

    to be honest, i think most of us are tired of the poorly written, poorly executed rom-coms. Bent, is thankfully a refreshing new twist to a used up concept. The show wastes little time on introduction, yet making you understand most of the main characters. David Walton pulls of a relaxed and slack contractor to Amanda Peet's single mother/lawyer. But by far the best part of the show is Jeffrey Tambor's best role since Arrested Development. not for everyone, but a it will surely give you a good chuckle. Full Review »
