    There aren’t enough shows on network television right now that are as aspirational as this one is, and Hale’s magnetic performance as Katy will keep you watching.

    Lucy Hale makes an unusually appealing [fairy tale princess]. ... Less about finding Prince Charming than it is about making your artistic dreams come true without losing your soul, Katy Keene is a fairy tale fit for a new decade.

    In all, “Katy Keene” represents a pleasant instance of the CW getting the balance exactly right for a comforting, engaging watch, keeping what works on “Riverdale” and ditching the murder. One hopes it stays that way.

    Katy Keene is far from drama-filled (or reality-filled), the type of show unlikely to make an Emmy nomination list. But you could do worse for weeknight escapist fodder than tuning in to the weekly travails of Katy and her friends.

    Charming yet slight . ... Every other character is just too practically perfect in every way, hardscrabbling occasional setbacks with bright-eyed radiance because friendship conquers all.
