    It has sharp writing and endearing characters.

    BFF takes a less than inventive situation and turns it into something close to sitcom gold, thanks to the fact that creators Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham have taken the time to write believable characters saying legitimately funny things.

    The show takes the time to give a few realistic dimensions to the characters' emotional lives, and each actor in the core trio has sharp comic timing.

    Best Friends Forever is better than a blank screen, but beyond setting what I think might be a 2011-12 season record--0 to vagina joke in 15 seconds--it doesn't do much to break through the sitcom clutter.

    The single-camera comedy is not particularly memorable, but it could have been much worse.

    BFF is not bad--classify this as another Young Urban New York-based sitcom--but it's not great, either, or certainly not smart enough, or different enough, or flat-out funny enough to deserve anything other than the bleak future that now appears preordained.

    BFF is about as fun as a multiple hernia operation.

    Just watched the pilot and thought it was rather funny! It took a few moments to decide if it was good or not, but there were a few moments where I laughed out loud. I found it somewhat unpredictable, which is a pretty great quality in a show. I'll keep watching! Expand

    The wife and I got about two thirds of the way through the pilot before we decided to cut our loses. Just didn't find it funny. It felt like it was trying to channel Bridesmaids a bit, but missed the mark. Comedy is subjective though, so I'll be curious to see if it finds an audience. Our household, however, won't be part of it. Expand
