Everybody makes mistakes, but for Tim - a self-conscious young guy living in New York - just getting out of bed in the morning could be the worst decision he makes all day. No matter the situation, life's little challenges always manage to demand the most offensive solutions, which wouldn't be such a problem if he weren't continually caught red-handed. From the mind of Steve Dildarian - the Clio-winning ad man behind Budweiser's famous 'Lizards' campaign - 'The Life and Times of Tim' follows this everyday working guy from one scandalous crisis to the next.

  • Tim Goodman

    The Life & Times of Tim--is flat-out brilliant and easily one of the funniest newcomers to television.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Troy Patterson

    The show gets under the skin, somehow, with its loose Web-clip vibe and looser philosophy of life.

    Slate Full Review
  • Linda Stasi

    The Life & Times of Tim, their new, offbeat, animated series, is one that works like crazy--and no, it doesn't hurt to be crazy to love this show.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Sophomoric and crude, The Life & Times of Tim may be a viable alternative for fans of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Tim's world is so consistently outlandish as to be difficult to resist, especially since Dildarian plays the whole thing with the understatement of Bob Newhart's old phone routines.

    Variety Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    The jokes that do hit on "Life and Times of Tim" suggest that Dildarian might be onto something really good if given time to fix the slow spots.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    The opening episodes are uneven but show a lot of potential.

    Time Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    I didn't find much of it funny, but on a kind of purely analytical level I can see how the jokes are supposed to work, and might well work on some.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    The animation is primitive, and so is the straining-to-be-hip writing in this deadpan sitcom.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    This is sporadically funny, but Tim is too slight -- the back-to-back episodes are only 10 to 12 minutes long -- and relies way too much on the supposed shock value of cartoon characters uttering four-letter words to be consistently entertaining.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    The animation is rudimentary and the jokes aren’t much better.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    The animated comedy, which premieres on HBO tomorrow at 11 after Little Britain USA, is unnecessarily slow and slack.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Heather Havrilesky

    The Life & Times of Tim isn't even as well written as that show, and it's far more amateurish and deeply, alarmingly stupid to boot.
