Review this tv show
Jan 2, 2013Not too comical, alright to watch when you're really really really bored though. The show is not funny until later seasons, basically until Danny Devito comes in to play Frank Reynolds. I think Devito being on the show attracted better writers and made the characters more funny.
Awards & Rankings
What makes it palatable is that it is often laugh-out-loud hilarious. If Seinfeld broke down a few barriers when it came to subject matter in a sitcom, Philadelphia gleefully smashes right through them. [3 Aug 2005]
The castmates aren't polished performers, but they know how to work a joke fast and move on. [4 Aug 2005]
Funny, refreshing and bold. [4 Aug 2005]
