    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. 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.
  3. 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.

    Gravity looks like another slow build. Its characters aren't as directly defined, and initial episodes exhibit curious methods to its storytelling madness.

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