    But the humor isn't the problem with Indebted; the problem is how it treats debt and fiscal irresponsibility.

    Indebted takes one of the hoariest sitcom premises imaginable and struggles to execute it with even a modicum of consistency or confidence. The Good Place made the difficult look easy. Indebted makes the familiar — good comedy is never actually easy — look difficult. ... These performers are too good for a show that's so instantly and inevitably forgotten.

    It’s not good. ... “Indebted” feels more like the typical tossed-off network sitcom, with roars of laughter greeting each machine gun spray of bad jokes. The cast members don’t seem particularly inspired, including Pally.

    For a show that really ought to be horsewhipped, have a look at NBC's alleged sitcom Indebted, which stars the animated corpses of Fran Drescher and Steven Weber as broke Baby Boomers who have to move back in with their son and his wife (Adam Pally, The Mindy Project, and Abby Elliott, Saturday Night Live). My only question after watching the pilot was, are they joking? And the answer was, no, not even once.
