    Maybe Prinze should just clear the soundstage of all these people, stand there alone and start over. [24 Oct 2005, p.41]

    Its humor is simple and, at times, degrading.
  3. It appears Freddie Prinze Jr. studied at the Matt LeBlanc School of Acting given his mumbling performance and nice-guy-cum-neanderthal portrayal of Freddie Moreno.
  4. It's ABC's idea of good, clean fun. Sad that it's the best idea the network could have.
  5. 20
    ''Freddie" tries to distinguish itself with Puerto Rican dash, and it has been even more ruthlessly built to appeal to TV's most coveted audience, young women, by exploiting Prinze's pinup appeal. Maybe ABC should think about adding a third element to help the show attract viewers: It's called good writing.
  6. 10
    The fall's worst new comedy.
  7. 10
    A transparent, if lame, vehicle for Freddie Prinze Jr.
  8. 10
    Never amusing, "Freddie" is relentlessly unreal and monotonously sophomoric.
  9. 10
    The characters aren't dimensional, or very involving, and Freddie has a drab sort of haplessness that makes him seem at best a chump, at worst a chimp.
  10. Terrible writing, painful acting, forced comic situations.
