Uncle Buck - (S01E06)


Buck and his buddy Cy have a tradition of watching the Bulls games on TV together with Buck's lucky basketball beside them (or the Bulls lose). But Buck's multi-tasking skills are pushed to the limit as Tia, Miles and Maizy all have separate crises on the night of a big game, and Will and Alexis are out celebrating their anniversary.

    While this by-the-numbers adaptation doesn't have the quirk or emotion that made the original so memorable, it boasts a key building block in Mike Epps. [17 Jun 2016]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Epps has his moments, the kids are well-cast and there are a few good lines. But you won’t be missing much if your Tuesday nights are already reserved for NBC’s competing America’s Got Talent.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Jeff Korbelik

    It’s a family comedy, one of many on the network, that, at times, has its moments. There’s just too few of them.

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • Sonia Saraiya

    The new sitcom isn’t bad, it’s just bland; low-impact, lightweight, and nothing to write (or tweet) home about. It’s too bad for Epps, who does his best with a limited role.

    Variety Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    The cast is solid and more comically effective than the material they are given, but the Russells seem more like what they are--a cast--than what they should be--a family.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    You’ve seen versions of these wisecracking kids in sitcoms for decades, even if their problems have been modernized. ... The adults are similarly one-note, from the nagging Jackie to the nebbishy Will to the type-A Alexis. And the beats are predictable.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    This is retro in all the worst ways. [6-19 Jun 2016, p.19]

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    Uncle Buck needs to be smarter, funnier, and, honestly, a different show. Epps too deserves better.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Dan Fienberg

    Uncle Buck offers a relative minimum of offensiveness, very few laughs, only hints at Epps' actual capabilities and runs a decent cast through stories you've seen done better on countless sitcoms.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    Epps is deprived of the sort of good writing that would showcase his talent well.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Uncle Buck isn't the worst thing ever, but it is predictable and pat, going down all the expected avenues. It's entirely skippable.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Joshua Alston

    The most unsettling thing about Uncle Buck is how beige and flavorless the whole thing is, as if anyone could have been cast in it with no discernible effect on the final product.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    There's a rigidity to the entire production, the unmistakable feeling of a series that was market-tested to death in every predictable plot turn, and every rote, over-written joke.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Allison Keene

    Uncle Buck is a cheap knockoff in every sense, both of the movie and of better sitcoms, and is the latest 80s remake nobody wanted to begin with.

    Collider Full Review
  • Scott D. Pierce

    The new Uncle Buck has a lot in common with the old version. They both, well, suck. ABC's sitcom is not funny. It's unoriginal and tedious.
