Critic Reviews for Bob (Hearts) Abishola: Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5)

The show is well-intentioned, but so far walks an unsteady line between the canned-laughter sound of a run-of-the-mill sitcom, and an attempt at something more ambitious.

If you got chuckles and awws out of Mike & Molly, cuddle up with this twist on that 2010-2016 hit.

But there's also an earnestness about Bob Hearts Abishola that makes it likable, and the writers' efforts at slowly bringing the two characters together to find common ground give these stereotypes some context.

Bob Hearts Abishola has just enough heart (no pun intended) to put it ahead of how most Chuck Lorre comedies started, including huge hits like Two and a Half Men or The Big Bang Theory.

Although the jokes are broad and the studio audience laughter as loud and long as any other Lorre show, there's something quiet, simple and satisfying about "Abishola" that makes it stand out among the producer's canon

The show probably can't keep them from a relationship for too long without stretching its premise too thin, but for now, their dynamic is a refreshingly unique one for a broadcast network sitcom.
