      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Though the cast is full of seasoned professionals and some of the content is humorous, The Exes feels churned out of a sitcom regeneration machine, introducing no new elements to the formula.

      Previous Mike Hale New York Times There's pleasure in observing the professionalism of everyone involved, and the crackerjack timing it.ensures. Dec 9, 2013 Full Review Matthew Gilbert Boston Globe A rickety vehicle in which a talented and extroverted cast of stars from old sitcoms can dance around the stage and mug for the camera. Dec 9, 2013 Full Review Robert Lloyd Los Angeles Times Watching it, you feel as if you have seen it all before, and will again, until eternity ends. Dec 9, 2013 Full Review Nabila Hatimy The Star (Kenya) The chemistry between the characters is flawless. The different personalities just seem to mesh well together. Kristen Johnson's loud demeanour is a crowd favourite. Jul 20, 2020 Full Review Kari Croop Common Sense Media Part of the problem is the ho-hum writing, disappointingly devoid of smart quips or zingy one-liners. But there's also a lack of comedic chemistry. 2/5 Jan 29, 2014 Full Review Angel Cohn Television Without Pity The Exes is yet another predictable, banal addition to the TV Land lineup.

      Previous Tiffany G The Exes was great TV. Unique premise, which isn't easy in these times. Great chemistry. Donald Faison makes the show, along with Kristen Johnson. The executive assistant could easily have her own show! Everyone is authentic and charismatic. Storylines were funny. Why all in the past tense? Some donkeys at the network thought it made sense to cancel it, and now they're permitting some claymation show about an un talented chef with a lisp? 🤦🏻‍♀️ At least we got for great seasons before they shut down a good thing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/10/23 Full Review Vishistik W Funny, sparky and good premise, not much to dislike Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/05/22 Full Review Audience Member When it comes to TV shows I don't often agree with RT, but in this case they nailed it. The Exes feels like it was crapped out by an automated TV generator. Everything here is generic and old, and it's never funny. They put it on to fill air time, and the actors took on their jobs just to keep busy. All the jokes are standard lame setups with lame pay-offs and several seconds of canned laughter. I was bored after the first 30 seconds and irritated after a minute. The only thing that had even minor potential was the tiny blonde talking to the giant blonde and they ruined every opportunity they had to be funny. Avoid The Exes at all costs. You'll be happier watching Seinfeld again even if you've seen every episode a dozen times. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Next Post a review
