      Marvin Kitman Newsday Do Over is promising. It has some really funny moments. Aug 24, 2022 Full Review Gail Pennington St. Louis Post-Dispatch Of this fall's two new shows with precisely the same plot, this is the half-hour one. Rated: B- Aug 23, 2022 Full Review Frazier Moore Associated Press Going back in time is the rage this fall, but Do Over scores with its distinctive blend of nostalgia spiced with dread. Wry and funny, it's worth at least a once-over. Aug 23, 2022 Full Review Sonia Mansfield San Francisco Examiner Yeah, so Do Over isn't exactly groundbreaking television, but it's cute and has its moments. It's just too bad that -- considering its deadly time slot -- no one will get to see those moments. Aug 23, 2022 Full Review Aaron Barnhart Kansas City Star Amusing if absurd sitcom about 34-year-old who is transported back to early ’80s to relive his teenhood. Aug 23, 2022 Full Review Tony Atherton Ottawa Citizen Do Over's comedy is rushed and overstated, and the show is only incidentally set in the 1980s, so its nostalgia is limited.
