      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      By failing to establish the credibility of its lead, Alex, Inc loses sight an appealing premise and strands a likable Zach Braff in a sea of wasted potential.

      Previous Sonia Saraiya Variety There is richness to Alex, Inc. It's just everywhere except the main story. Mar 29, 2018 Full Review Robert Lloyd Los Angeles Times It's good-natured almost to a fault, a giant dimple of a show. Mar 29, 2018 Full Review Inkoo Kang Hollywood Reporter The dozens of probably excellent podcast episodes on my phone that are waiting to be heard serve as a reminder that life's too short to watch some charmless twerp gradually grow a spine. Mar 28, 2018 Full Review Emily Ashby Common Sense Media Tepid comedy has positive messages about work/life balance. 2/5 Apr 10, 2018 Full Review Nick Venable CinemaBlend Currently... it's only halfway to that goal, and instead of wanting to watch more, I'm just thinking about podcasts now. 2.5/5 Mar 28, 2018 Full Review Mark A. Perigard Boston Herald What Alex, Inc. cries out for is for that one character who doesn't think Alex is amazing, smart, sexy, funny or God's gift to humanity.
