Critic Reviews

  1. Ironically, the differences among the characters that make the show interesting and even, at times, compelling, also test its credibility.

    While "What About Brian" strikes some of the familiar chords about love, angst and the terror of young adulthood that have viewers swooning over "Grey's Anatomy," the show does so in a more laid-back tone, which should make its leap from a post-"Desperate Housewives" launch to its regular Monday moorings a commercial challenge.

    "Brian" is easy, harmless viewing, sliding down the gullet as smoothly and reassuring as a glass of California merlot.
  4. There's not a lot wrong about "Brian.'' But there's not a lot right about it, either.

    This is all nicely produced with mild offbeat tweaks along the way... But none of this is original either. [24 Apr 2006, p.39]
  6. "What About Brian" isn't a terrible show, it just doesn't offer enough unique reasons to make a weekly appointment with this gang of friends.
