    If the writing can rise to [Harrison's and Hall's] performances, The Loop could take flight.
  2. You probably can tell that this thing isn't bound for the sitcom hall of fame, but it's a good time.

    It may not have the subtlety or sophisticated wit of "Arrested Development," but it's not supposed to. It's more a combination of "The Office" and "Four Kings" -- with really good music and a distinctive, energetic visual style.
  4. 60
    The Loop's constant jokes about hot bodies and alcoholic excess would doubtless wear thin very quickly if not for a lunatic cast of young unknowns and gifted veteran character actors.
  5. 50
    The show moves along briskly, and it benefits from the lack of a laugh track. But you have to accept the relentless repetition of some flagrantly juvenile jokes to enjoy yourself.

    The Loop is half funny.
  7. A crude comedy filled with frat-boy humor.
  8. 40
    When you watch this show, you can almost hear some big, dumb executive animal saying, "We want a single-camera comedy that's weird and dark and fun, you know, like 'Arrested Development,' except with a young, sexy cast!"

    Bret Harrison is playing the same character he plays in everything, a nice guy who always has relationship problems and hes good at it. HeBret Harrison is playing the same character he plays in everything, a nice guy who always has relationship problems and hes good at it. He gets into lots of crazy, funny situations trying not to get fired from his job. He has a crazy, funny brother too, and 2 hot chick housemates. Full Review »

    The first season was wobbly, but the second is absolute brilliance. Writing is fantastic; this show deserves to become a hit!
