    Gravity feels like just another bit of quirky telly, an attempt to be distinguishable and different in a way that just upholds the status quo. Yet it's also actually very good. Gravity knows exactly how to make you laugh and when you should cry.
  2. It's a brilliant sitcom premise in this sense: The characters will all have backstories. The only tiny caution is that many of those stories won't necessarily be funny.
  3. Fascinating characters, a solid cast and strong guest casting (Robert Klein and Anne Meara are in early episodes) combine with an eyes-wide-open approach to a typically taboo TV topic. The result is an intriguing series and a sense of the impact Chris Albrecht will have as Starz CEO, a job he started this year.

    Schaeffer's come up with original, fascinating characters who, as Dorothy Parker would say, might as well live.

    Gravity looks like another slow build. Its characters aren't as directly defined, and initial episodes exhibit curious methods to its storytelling madness.
  6. Gravity’s inability to find a consistent tone may lead to its early demise.

    The problem with all this sensitivitiy is that the show has a tougher time delivering on the whimsy. [3 May 2010, p.42]

    There's a certain "Twin Peaks" influence to the nuttiness of the show's plotlines and an attempted morbid irreverence reminiscent of HBO's fondly remembered "Six Feet Under." But at some point, the influences cancel each other out and you're left with half an hour of -- well, nothing

    It might be possible to make a good show in which a suicide support group served as the framework for an offbeat relationship comedy, but for now “Gravity” is like that Mercedes, flying through the air and losing altitude fast.

    This charmless and laugh-free dud yearns to be bold as it constructs an odd relationship between a young widower (Ivan Sergei) and a moody cosmetics clerk (Krysten Ritter).
  11. It's not funny, it's not engaging, it's not in any way, shape or form a good match with "Party Down," and I would advise those of you watching that show tonight to change the channel abruptly as soon as the end credits are done rolling.
