    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.
  2. Hip in tone but traditional in spirit, it's not at all hard to feel welcome at the Captain.
  3. 60
    Welcome to the Captain attempts a similarly shaggy, loose sitcom vibe, but isn't quite successful, though it's at least watchable.
  4. Kranz does look like a writer, for what it's worth. But if he's really as good as they say, he'd have written something better than this.
  5. Sadly, Welcome to the Captain just isn't funny or inspired enough to nail the peek-behind-the-Hollywood-curtain genre.
  6. The Captain [is] a historic hotel now populated by every Hollywood stereotype ever dusted off for a sitcom pilot.
  7. Another single-camera comedy that fails to provide any laughs.
