  1. The best sitcom this year, and one of the best in a lot of years.
  2. In addition to some screwball comedy, it also has a lot of heart.

    The Class doesn't necessarily generate more laughs than other sitcoms, but it has more charm--like a kinder, gentler How I Met Your Mother--and that's incentive enough to stick with it. [16 Oct 2006, p.39]
  4. The writing has picked up considerably since the pilot. But the real reason to try this show is the cast.
  5. The best thing to say about "The Class" is that it improves by quite a few notches as it goes along.... The worst thing to say about "The Class" is that requiring viewers to come back and try, try again is asking a lot.
  6. A sometimes-promising, sometimes-frustrating, always-overpopulated new sitcom that kicks off this season's odd new trend of shows about relative strangers who become best pals in a hurry.
  7. 10
    "The Class" has very little. Considerably worse than being classless, however, is being laughless, at least if you happen to be a sitcom, and "The Class" does, albeit one that's about as rib-tickling as a migraine.

    This show is very funny and has characters you will fall in love with. I would compare it to "Friends" (obviously nothing will every be better) but this show is one of my favorites from last season. I am so glad that it will be on again. I would recommend watching last seasons episodes if you have time... they are all on the CBS website and you can watch the whole season online! You will not be disappointed in this show. Expand

    I'm not into sitcoms much, but I gave this a shot, and really enjoy it. I think the writing is very clever, and the cliffhangers are brilliant. I don't know who any of the cast is except Sam Harris, and he is hysterical. If anything, he makes the show. And David Keith was a blast from the past. If I had to say something negative, that would be about two too many characters. But at this point, I cannot imagine cutting anyone. In fact, Sam and Sara should be expanded. I hope they give it a very long shot. It's a really bad time slot and night. Expand

    I think this show is great and really funny. I almost always get several good laughs out of each episode. I'm glad they got rid of the TV newscaster's role, though. Expand

    Interesting characters. Some decent laughs but the show is very stiff and the acting largely questionable.
