      Previous Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times Sheen is so good at playing himself, one envisions and hopes for an entire semi-fictional series with that premise. In the meantime, we’ve got a solid and funny comedy. 3/4 Dec 2, 2023 Full Review Brian Tallerico RogerEbert.com Maniscalco pushes his way through some awful writing in the premiere of “Bookie,” a half-hour of television that can be downright archaic in its sense of humor when it's not just lazy. Nov 29, 2023 Full Review Jonathan W. Hickman The Newnan Times-Herald “Bookie” is funny in a contextual way. Fans of Maniscalco won’t be disappointed, but this isn’t an overt sitcom. 7/10 Jan 26, 2024 Full Review Robert W. Butler Butler's Cinema Scene This is laugh-out-loud stuff. Jan 5, 2024 Full Review KT Mahe For Your Reference Podcast A sensational colliding of worlds mixing the blunt humour in Sopranos and what Tulsa King could have been. 4/5 Dec 19, 2023 Full Review Oti For Your Reference Podcast Bookie shines with dynamic chemistry between its leads, brilliantly capturing a veteran bookie's struggle in a changing world. Their interplay adds depth to this edgy and compelling drama. 4.5/5 Dec 19, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous Lisa E Show had great combination of action, humor and characters. Waiting for season 2! Also loved all the cameo appearances. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/24 Full Review Semaj3G W MAN I absolutely love this show its hilariously funny. Wonderful show !!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/24 Full Review Kevin H Enjoyable adult comedy. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Bob Time is money. Don't gamble your future away watching bad TV. On the other hand, what are you gonna do, cure cancer? Sit back, relax, enjoy the show putz. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Chavel D It's good. It's a comedy and a tv show but it's hard for me to wrap my head around bookies that don't hurt people to collect their money. The two main characters are funny. Let's see if they keep my attention in season 2 if there is a season 2.... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/01/24 Full Review David W Takes a couple of episodes to hit its stride. Excellent ensemble cast. Hilarious situational comedy. Not for everyone. You need a certain age of reference to get the throwaway jokes. I'm down for season 2 and that's saying something. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Next Post a review
