    One of the best conventional half-hours to come along in a while.

    So far, so good.

    If the writers can keep avoiding pitfalls, this surprisingly pleasing show just may signify the end of the ''Seinfeld" curse.
  4. 88
    This bright, funny, appealing old-school comedy is an ideal vehicle for Louis-Dreyfus.
  5. A winning, extremely funny new sitcom.
  6. Without bringing anything radically new to the annals of sitcomedy, Louis-Dreyfus makes Christine feel fresh and real.
  7. 75
    This one should break the "Seinfeld" curse. It smells like a winner and only gets funnier each week.
  8. 80
    Smart, sassy and delightful.
  9. 80
    Louis-Dreyfus reaffirms her talents for playing exasperation and physical awkwardness. Christine stumbles repeatedly, but Louis-Dreyfus soars.
  10. It is smartly written, particularly well-cast and a worthy vehicle for Louis-Dreyfus and her high-energy comedy.
  11. 75
    Has some genuinely funny moments despite its laugh track and conventional sitcom framework.
  12. Generally funny, sharply observant and smart in its use of the star and a good supporting cast.
  13. While this could be funny, over the first three episodes the show is as confused as the star seems to be about her character's perfect hair (the style is different in nearly every scene).
  14. 80
    Julia Louis-Dreyfus has finally slain the Seinfeld curse.

    Frustratingly old-fashioned. [24 Mar 2006, p.58]

    Started to watch this. Heard the laugh track. Turned it off. I cannot abide watching a comedy and hearing other people laugh at everyStarted to watch this. Heard the laugh track. Turned it off. 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 »
