    Retired at 35 is all about hitting your mark, spewing out a tired line then waiting for the canned laughter to start. Some people like the comfort of familiarity, but others just feel the contempt. Ahem.

    Retired at 35 will send you to the liquor cabinet, hoping to kill a few memory cells. It starts with the writing, which is bland and cliched, even by old-school-sitcom standards.

    If "Hot in Cleveland" demonstrated there's life in comfort-food comedy beyond the major networks, Retired reminds us that while it's possible to triumph in TV with reheated concepts, poor execution remains the surest way to get unceremoniously put out to pasture.

    Don't ask me what Retired at 35 has to offer. TV Land's new companion sitcom for "Hot in Cleveland" is a piece of brash nonsense that, with jokes featuring older people talking about "Facialbook" and "texturizing," seems like it was written to target people who died about 30 years ago.

    A death row convict on life support would demand my attention more than this ill-fated sitcom. The characters are uninteresting....the plots are anemic.....and, just as in "Just Shoot Me", the "whoosieface-what'shisname" that I refuse to remember is horrible. What a shame to have an entertaining show like "Hot in Cleveland" lead into something that scores about as many points as, well, the Cleveland Browns. Full Review »

    we thoroughly enjoyed "Retired at 35" the last season and sincerely hope that it will continue to be shown.
    It gave us a lot of laughs and
    found the cast to be excellent. Thank you, LWilliams Full Review »
