It never goes as hard or gets as dark as, say, BoJack did… but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, either. The lighter touch makes it an easier watch, and it does deliver more laughs per minute than most anything out there these days. A TV comedy that’s actually funny — what will they think of next?Rating: 83/100
Reboot has a structurally sound plot to support itself and a perfectly assembled cast to work with. All it needs is a tad more retooling.Rating: 75/100
Like Step Right Up’s writing room, Reboot occasionally seems torn between two ideals: the standard world of sitcoms, and an attempt to do something new and fresh. But like that writer’s room, the show eventually finds an equal balance that will likely please both fans of Levitan’s more standard sitcom work and something that takes a few solid shots at the television industry in general.Rating: 75/100
At its core, it’s about a program within a program that’s being pushed and pulled between old-fashioned comedy and a more progressive brand of humor, and there’s a meta reading of “Reboot” itself wherein it’s doing the exact same thing. This is interesting on paper. Sadly, that doesn’t make it funny.Rating: 50/100
