  1. Let's say Unhitched just isn't very funny.
  2. 30
    Most of its jokes and plots feel flat and predictable and it’s hard to get invested in a comedy that relies on the fact that its only minority character, a doctor of Indian descent, can’t get certain American slang terms right. Har har.
  3. Unhitched expends a wrestler’s energy aiming to offend and provoke, but no amount of outrageousness can mask its conformity.

    The show feels completely derivative, it's wholly unconvincing that the central quartet would hang out together, and I'm frankly still fuzzy (mostly because after 10 minutes it's difficult to give a damn) on what connects them beyond the not-that-jarring status of being single again in their 30s and, well, "Seinfeld" did it.
  5. 30
    There's not "a lot" of heart in the unhilarious Unhitched--in fact, barely any.
  6. In a way, Unhitched reminds me of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" in its attempts to shock, but this new series feels more manufactured and far less likely to become a cult hit.
  7. 25
    The actors do their best, but most of what they're doing is hopelessly, witlessly predictable.
  8. The Farrellys finish in second place [of having the dumbest show this Sunday], directing a sitcom, Unhitched (Sunday 9:30 p.m., Fox 29), about four clowns who struggle stupidly with their newly single status.
  9. The issue I have with the rape-by-orangutan scene in Unhitched is that it's not funny, nor does it even seem to be trying to be funny. It's lazy comedy, substituting shock value for wit and invention, and it typifies everything that follows on this lame excuse for a sitcom.

    Horribly unfunny and stupid. This is the kind of show that is destroying America and the world at large. The actors, writing, and direction all suck beyond belief. Full Review »

    This one went in and out for me. I liked some pieces, others, not so much. The stereo-typical Indian guy was the only one that really annoyed me. Everyone else I believed and enjoyed to a certain degree. And I loved that it was in Boston! Full Review »
