    Beyond its thin premise, Weird Loners fares best when it digs deeper, having Stosh help Caryn out with an older relative, or exploring the childhood history between Stosh and Eric.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    Creator Michael Weithorn (“The King of Queens”) effortlessly pulls Weird Loners past the usual pilot-episode blues to deliver a single-camera show that is harmlessly offbeat and even fun to watch (with something of a “Happy Endings” vibe), thanks to a cast that clicks instantly.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    This show is guided by sitcom pros, but it doesn’t feel like an old-pro show at all. It doesn’t go for easy or cheap laughs, and most of its scenes don’t follow the usual sitcom trajectory--instead, they take odd twists and turns.

  • Neil Genzlinger

    It’s not loud or frenetic. It’s not particularly cutting-edge. It’s just funny, in a relaxed way that’s welcome somehow in a television spectrum full of pushiness and intensity.

  • Jeff Korbelik

    Loners is goofy--the same way Knighton’s “Happy Endings” was--and that’s what makes it so fun.

  • David Wiegand

    For the most part, Weird Loners is done well enough to merit your attention.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Maybe network executives are just throwing their hands up for now and clearing the cupboard shelves of what’s left, which includes the funny, engaging Weird Loners.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    A single-camera comedy with no laugh track, Weird Loners is a pleasant enough viewing experience.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    The principals are all good.... And there are funny lines.... At the same time, the show feels something shy of essential.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Judy Hur

    Weird Loners is not so fresh as its title might presume. Its protagonists are more familiar than strange, and their stories are clichéd.

    PopMatters Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    It has an appealing cast (here's hoping, in particular, that this is not the last we've seen of Kumbhani), and there are moments when actors and material mesh, as in a gleeful group attempt to lip-read a wedding. But then those moments pass, and the show falls back on jokes that are either creaky (could we please have an overweight character who isn't bitter or blissfully stupid?) or cruel.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jeff Jensen

    Weird Loners wants to be a cheeky howl on behalf of the unloved, but it does little to elicit sympathy or laughter from its familiar, humorless, formulations of weirdness and lonesomeness. [3 Apr 2015, p.58]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    The sitcom starts with one of the best introductions to a group of losers. By the end of the third episode Fox provided for review, I was yawning and daydreaming about buying nail fungus remover.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Weird Loners instead re-shuffles the aimless singles deck before falling well short of coming up aces.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    As is, the series spends an inordinate amount of time concerned with matters below the belt--including Stosh’s complaint that with Eric hanging around, he won’t be able to “choke the sheriff”--and delivers less charm or laughs than something like “New Girl,” itself a show whose most “adorkable” days appear to be behind it.

    Variety Full Review
  • Margaret Lyons

    Fox's new sitcom Weird Loners hates its characters to an almost pathological degree. .... The show feels like bullying.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    Because this [Manhattan-cetric romcoms where self-absorption ultimately gives way to romance] is such an overly familiar TV trope, it demands great chemistry among all the leads and sharply funny dialogue to match. I wandered through this purgatory for three episodes and found zilch.
