    This show has few fleeting funny lines. Overall, not worth watching. Most people compare it to Arrested Development, which is sad, because AD was funny. The humour is juvenile and cheap, and the characters are uninteresting. Another show in a long line of swings & misses for fox. They should've stuck with Arrested Development.

    This show had so much potential after season 1. Well, the changes to the show have made season 2 perhaps the worst television show I have ever seen. Why, for the love of god, why?

    Plainly an attempt to revamp "Arrested Development" in a form that executives think wont "swing and miss" like the unappreciated gem that was Arrested Development. Bottom line is, no charisma and no memorable...anything. The problem with executives trying to make any show ANYTHING is it always results in dumbed down characters

    Plagiaristic. A bit like, 'The O.C', a bit like 'Arrested Development'. But, it still tops every other new sitcoms these days. And that's not saying much.

    Trying WAY too hard. They swing a lot, and while they connect on a few, they miss on way too many.

    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!"
  2. As for "The Loop," well, it's just heinous. True, we've said that before. But it can't be said enough. "The Loop": heinous.

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