Critic Reviews

  1. The writing in "Old Christine" is occasionally funny in a low-key way, but too often the show is a bore.
  2. Those Elaine moments are the real allure of this series -- a chance to see Ms. Louis-Dreyfus once again portray an insensitive, aggressive neurotic trapped in the body of a petite, attractive woman.

    "Old Christine" could morph into a fresh and funny staple, as long as it's tinkered with correctly.
  4. 60
    Old Christine is more fun than Watching Ellie. The question that remains is whether it will be funny enough for viewers to finally leave Elaine behind.
  5. 60
    Though the writing here is inconsistent, [Louis-Dreyfus] just might stay around with this one, which gives her some chances to show off.
  6. 60
    A sitcom doesn’t have to break new ground to be good, but it does have to make you feel that it isn’t just going through the motions. "Christine" satisfies on that score to some extent, but you just want more from it.
  7. 40
    Despite some promising moments in the first few episodes, the show seems destined for the same fate as Ellie.

I cannot abide watching a comedy and hearing other people laugh at every punch-line - whether it be funny or not. This could be a good show but I guess I'll never know. Full Review »
