      Previous Robert Lloyd Los Angeles Times The cast all do lovely work - [Walter] Goggins is entirely at ease playing a person not entirely at ease with the new rules of romance, and his castmates are reliably funny as they push him along and offer secondhand advice. Dec 4, 2019 Full Review Matthew Gilbert Boston Globe I'm happy to say that [Walter] Goggins makes the shift into conventionality and rectitude effortlessly. Dec 4, 2019 Full Review John Doyle Globe and Mail It's not going to blow your mind, this sitcom. But it will remind you that it's possible to see a clever comedy about middle age, dating and parenting that never insults your intelligence. Oct 24, 2019 Full Review Malcolm Hopwood So what goes wrong? It's his friends. They're insufferable and the worst cutouts since cardboard was invented. Mar 12, 2020 Full Review Randy Dankievitch Goomba Stomp What really makes The Unicorn special is its ability to successfully navigate the cliche-laden landscape of domestic dramas and family comedies - and occasionally, transcend them in subtle, exciting ways. Jan 10, 2020 Full Review Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette On paper, this show sounds dreadful, but it rises above its premise largely thanks to [Walter] Goggins.

      Previous Audience Member This show was touching, hilarious & topical so the characters could teach about things like racial inequality. Walton Goggins portrayed the character who is a widower PERFECTLY!!! I don't understand why CBS cancelled this wonderful, funny, warm show!!!😞😟😡 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I have always enjoyed each episode. I will sadly miss this show. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review andrei d Surprisingly not funny Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member It's strange watching Walton Goggins actually play a good guy, a single father of two at that? The role is literally the complete opposite of the usual characters that he plays... I'm so used seeing him as the obnoxious evil bad guy(Vice Principals, Sons of Anarchy, Fatman). But he actually does an OK job on this family sitcom because he is good in comedies IMO... But if I had never seen his previous shows and movies I might have actually believed he was a good guy. Side note: Half of the male cast in The Unicorn is from the show Ballers on HBO. So you know it will have some good laughs! Maybe The Rock will make a cameo lol. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Super entertaining, not at all morally reprehensible, more clever than you might expect. Really like it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny and not too corny like so many sitcoms that have come out lately. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews Next Post a review
