    Beyond its thin premise, Weird Loners fares best when it digs deeper, having Stosh help Caryn out with an older relative, or exploring the childhood history between Stosh and Eric.

    This show is guided by sitcom pros, but it doesn’t feel like an old-pro show at all. It doesn’t go for easy or cheap laughs, and most of its scenes don’t follow the usual sitcom trajectory--instead, they take odd twists and turns.

    Loners is goofy--the same way Knighton’s “Happy Endings” was--and that’s what makes it so fun.

    The principals are all good.... And there are funny lines.... At the same time, the show feels something shy of essential.

    It has an appealing cast (here's hoping, in particular, that this is not the last we've seen of Kumbhani), and there are moments when actors and material mesh, as in a gleeful group attempt to lip-read a wedding. But then those moments pass, and the show falls back on jokes that are either creaky (could we please have an overweight character who isn't bitter or blissfully stupid?) or cruel.

    The sitcom starts with one of the best introductions to a group of losers. By the end of the third episode Fox provided for review, I was yawning and daydreaming about buying nail fungus remover.

    Because this [Manhattan-cetric romcoms where self-absorption ultimately gives way to romance] is such an overly familiar TV trope, it demands great chemistry among all the leads and sharply funny dialogue to match. I wandered through this purgatory for three episodes and found zilch.

    Surprisingly low score for a potentially fantastic show! Each character is purely individualistic and they all mesh really well. NO LAUGHSurprisingly low score for a potentially fantastic show! Each character is purely individualistic and they all mesh really well. NO LAUGH TRACK either...that's a huge plus! I saw a review asking what the point of the show is...It's to ENTERTAIN you and give you an escape from reality as per the reason television was invented. You don't have to learn something with every TV show. Sometimes you just need a good 25 minutes away from everything and laugh with fictional characters. I hope this continues to air! Expand

I haven't been as excited for a sitcom since "Happy Endings" which Zach coincidentally starred in. I especially like the characters played by him and Becki but Meera looks to be a breakout. They all - minus Becki - did a hilarious scene near the end by ad-lip-syncing a couple's wedding vows. Sharply funny stuff. Great writing and directing, at least in the pilot. Just added to my DVR as "Record Series". Expand

It's not nearly as funny and right now the show is being dominated by two attractive stars. Right now the show is somewhat predictable. I would compare it to "Marry Me", which is executive produced by the creator of HE. I think Marry Me is funnier,and more of an ensemble cast. Right now Weird Loners is trying to figure out what it wants to be. Expand

    The Pilot episode was decent. Then the show plummeted in the second episode. No individual character seems to draw in my attention. ItThe Pilot episode was decent. Then the show plummeted in the second episode. No individual character seems to draw in my attention. It feels like someone took Happy Endings, cut the cast in half, put them in a different big city, and then took out all of the witty humored dialogue of good sitcoms. Becki Newton feels like she should be in Sex in the City or one of those other shows where beautiful women are always being hit on but whose single status somehow lives on in perpetuity. The overweight man-child's character provides juvenile humor more suited for a Nickelodeon show. Meera's character is the warmhearted-sympathizer whose emotional inclinations toward weirdos always gets her in compromising situations. She's not a believable character. 80% of the show's focus is on Zachary Knighton's character and Becki Newton, so there isn't an even a balance between the weight that each of the four characters are suppose to bring to the show. Personally, I believe the world is tired of characters like Knighton, whose inexplicable prodigious sexual prowess with women always lead him to "sleeping with that one guy's girlfriend." His self-righteous, sarcastic, ill-humored explanations for why he is justified tends to follow closely behind. These characters just aren't that funny anymore. With all this being said, the show might get better, I personally won't be around to find out. Expand
