Critic Reviews

  1. 50
    The show isn't a debacle, but it's a disappointing comedy that doesn't live up to an interesting premise.
  2. 50
    At first blush, "Help Me Help You" looks like it will be terrible, but it's not. The actors are talented. The language and pacing are playful.
  3. 40
    It’s not laugh-out-loud funny, but once in a while it’s vaguely amusing, though certainly not in a must-see sort of way.
  4. 60
    A sly, witty step up from the boorish "Becker."
  5. A mildly amusing sitcom that is promising -- including the sense that it promises to go nowhere fast.
  6. It's funny in its own way, smarter than most TV comedies and has a terrific cast -- all of which makes me wonder why I'm not more moved by it.
  7. For now, it remains more like a group of shuffled skits than a cohesive series.
  8. Mr. Danson has some funny moments, but he is not as comfortable in a comic genre where deadpan takes the place of punch line.
  9. 50
    Considering his talents, Danson should be the show's biggest asset, and yet his character has become its biggest problem.
  10. 40
    Several steps up from "Becker."
