    Finally, a clever new sitcom. [17 Mar 2006, p.108]

    It's a fresh, darkly comic workplace/social life farce peppered with good laughs.

    Yes, "The Loop's" a winner, although let us be the first to admit that the usual attributes associated with "winning" are probably stretched beyond all recognition in this context.
  4. It's funnier than a similar new Fox sitcom, "Free Ride," about a college graduate who moves back in with his parents. Partly that is because "The Loop" has a faster pace and bolder writing.

    Presumably, the actors will settle into their roles and get a better grip on timing and volume. They're over-the-top for material that's already zany.

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