  1. The best new comedy of the season.

    To embrace "Knights," you have to have a taste for the kind of comedy that teases because it loves.
  3. 80
    The show’s ensemble cast is rock-solid, and makes you instantly root for this goofball gang.

    You'll root for these inept amateurs, but sustaining this premise won't be easy.
  5. "Knights" is without question the funniest comedy ABC has on its roster. But look at the network's other options, and you'll understand that's not what you'd call a hard-won honor.
  6. It was [creators Burnett and Beckerman's] style on "Ed" to be too cutesy by half, and so here

    A sweet, gentle, good-natured trifle that is (nonetheless) surprisingly airless and only rarely funny, if that.

    This is a very funny show. The comedic timing of all the wonderful actors and actress is impeccable.The characters on the show are terrific and the actors who play them have such good chemistry, I love the way their personalitities work so well with one another. And Ithe plot is so uniquely hilarious. Expand

    I never stop laughing at this show. It is AMAZING, by far the best show on tv this year so far. I have never ever bothered tuning in to every single episode of a tv show until now. I've literally watched each episode more than 2 times. I can't get enough. My roomate and I quote this, in an Anchorman-esque style. This show shouldn't be cancelled... how can anyone not laugh at this show? THUMBS UP, Letterman! Expand

    I just can't wait to see who these crazy people are going to rob next. What a great premise and perfectly cast.

    I agree with the reviewers. "sweet, gentle, good-natured" (Newsday) and even "knee-slappingly and side-splittingly funny stuff, or as close to that as TV gets these days." (Washington Post). The critics finally chose a fair assesment for a TV show this year. Trust them on this one. Check out the show. Its not strong enough to get you hooked unless you laugh easily, but its definitly a thumb up this year in TV. Collapse

    Worst show since "20 Good Years." We can only hope KoP's run is shorter than 20GY.
