Critic Reviews

  1. Hip in tone but traditional in spirit, it's not at all hard to feel welcome at the Captain.

    The first-rate actors, led by likable Kranz, don't strain in their offbeat roles. Tambor adds another first-rate portrait to his gallery of goofballs. The usually reserved Klein is livelier than ever.
  3. If Welcome to the Captain can sustain its tone of tender quirkiness, it may find an appreciate audience stretching from those who loved "Arrested Development" to fans of "My Name Is Earl."

    Nothing in Welcome to the Captain is particularly fresh, but there's nevertheless a genial charm to this CBS comedy, whose main drawback is that it focuses on the wrong characters.

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 don't dislike this show: there's just nothing (except Garcia) to like. Full Review »
