Critic Reviews

  1. The Captain [is] a historic hotel now populated by every Hollywood stereotype ever dusted off for a sitcom pilot.

    Let's hope Welcome, as forced as "Christine" is relaxed, runs itself into cancellation sooner rather than later.

    Welcome to the Captain, a tepid comedy about would-be wackos in a Hollywood apartment building, is such a dud that it's likely to only make some of us miss the funnier "Big Bang Theory" (which it temporarily replaces) even more.

    The show seems to vanish as it's happening, leaving behind nothing except a vague feeling of being mildly annoyed. It doesn't just fail to leave you laughing. It leaves you, period.
  5. 20
    Welcome to The Captain is less a TV show than a grim ransom note from the striking Hollywood writers.
  6. Another single-camera comedy that fails to provide any laughs.

I cannot believe that it was canceled. I know it had low ratings, but they should have advertised it more. It was a hilarious show and I think CBS should bring it back. I bought a season pass on Itunes for it and I think if anything they should at least finish the first season. Full Review »

The only problem with it is that it bypasses the simpleton humor found in most shows and goes to directly to situational and intellectual charm. The characters are likable, but need time to find a direction. Full Review »

    Other than Joanna Garcia, there's not an attractive , likable character on the show. The story lines are weak; the show is flat. I Other than Joanna Garcia, there's not an attractive , likable character on the show. The story lines are weak; the show is flat. I don't dislike this show: there's just nothing (except Garcia) to like. Full Review »
