    Martin has evolved into one of the most consistently amusing sitcoms in prime time, but not because the show itself is particularly original or well written. ... The best humor on Martin seems, whether it's true or not, to have been improvised by Lawrence and his costars, a quality which gives the show an enjoyably loose, anything-can-happen feel.

    What it lacks is wit, depending instead on Lawrence to do shtick. He overacts terribly, hammily mugging for the camera.
  3. It stinks. ... Dumb, sexist humour abounds. [5 Sep 1992]
