    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.

    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 isto 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.

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. Expand

    I watched this last night and was impressed with the cast but the show stinks. Amanda Peet is not a comedienne and that's a real problem since she's the start of this attempt at comedy. The writing is awful and the plot makes no sense.

    Aside from the actual content, the show could be palatable.

    The cast is good , Amanda Peet is perfect for the role & David Walton was a bit better then i thought he would be but the writing is so bad !!! it was not funny at all & I don't think the show will go any farther !

    If the characters are not particularly original, neither do they come off as artificial. The dialogue is 75% banter, but it is crisp and tart, and the actors make even the ripostes you can predict sound spontaneous.

    It would be a mistake to count this scruffy little comedy out. It's really charming.

    Bent is the sort of funky offbeat comedy that grows on you, so watching more than one episode at a sitting turns out to be a good thing.
