Bent isn't a terrible sitcom. It's just flimsy and forgettable.

The quick reparte and the presence of great secondary players is also a crucial part of the appeal.

A breezy two-hour binge that'll put a smile on your face.

Bent entertained while it lasted, a light, heartfelt little comedy that wasn't the funniest or best written show, but a solid comedy with some great potential.
