Idiotsitter - (S01E04)


"Idiotsitter" is an "Odd Couple" for the modern era -- if "The Odd Couple" followed two off-the-wall women instead of saggy old men. Jillian Bell is Gene, a woman whose wild lifestyle has landed her under house arrest; Charlotte Newhouse is Billie, a down-on-her-luck Harvard grad who must work as her court-appointed guardian. Idiotsitter brings the Internet to new depths of depravity.

    Idiotsitter is raucous and loose (the signature Comedy Central outtake end tag shows how much riffing is involved), but also a very promising vehicle for Bell and Newhouse.

    For all the self-protective aggressiveness and passive aggressiveness on display, Idiotsitter is tender at its core and toward its characters.

  • Ken Tucker

    Idiotsitter, a smartly crass comedy, plays like a treatment for a wacky buddy-movie, shrunk to a smaller scale for TV.

  • Mike Hale

    Idiotsitter comes equipped with a more developed situation and thematic framework than usual for this genre--it’s partly a satire of the 1 percent, in which Gene and her family are well-meaning narcissists of varying levels of shrewdness.

  • Matthew Gilbert

    Based on a preview of two episodes, Idiotsitter is fairly amusing.

  • Chris Cabin

    The talent involved is enough to ensure that Comedy Central’s latest is vaguely amusing, but Idiotsitter should have been more riotous than amiable, more uniquely ruthless than blandly juvenile.
