    With [Mike O'Malley's] fluid scripts, these sharp actors hit not just three-pointers but also free throws.

  • Rob Owen

    Although a TV series about the trappings of sudden fame could be cliché, Mr. O’Malley roots the show in specific, believable characters that make Survivor’s Remorse one of the fall’s stand-out new shows.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Joshua Alston

    The show initially relies too heavily on plots in which Cam’s career is imperiled by the family’s behavior, plots that come off as contrivances to give the family deeper roots in Cam’s world. But Remorse finds its sea legs once it realizes Cam’s family can afford to stand on its own, whether they realize it or not.

  • Alan Sepinwall

    It's not wildly funny in the early going, but there's a sense of confidence in the material, the tone and the world, and the creative team doesn't ask you to buy into things that aren't necessary.

  • Melissa Maerz

    The cast is charming and there's a refreshing honesty about Cam. [3 Oct 2014, p.67]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    The cast is terrific, and some of the lines are screamingly funny, but there’s also an empathetic, moral undercurrent to the story--the usual cautionary tale about having all your dreams come true.

  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    The writing has moments of embarrassing earnestness better left for a college-dorm bull session. For the most part, though, it is fearless and never shies away from showing its characters in a less-than-flattering light.

  • Alessandra Stanley

    Survivor’s Remorse is mordant and very funny, but there is a redeeming sweetness beneath the satire and b-ball swagger.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • It's genuinely hilarious and smartly written (Mike O'Malley), its observations are keen, its atmosphere warm but with a saving flinty undertone. Add to that a preening vulgarity that shows touching evidence of restraint.

  • Matt Roush

    This disarming winner has you instantly rooting for basketball prodigy Cam Calloway (Jessie T. Usher).

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    What makes it work beyond the sitcom-ish sound of that, to the extent it does, is primarily the genial camaraderie between Cam and Reggie, and the genuine warmth among the characters, even when they’re sniping at each other. Give part of the credit to director Ken Whittingham, who brings a natural, unforced quality to those scenes.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The humor is sly and more thoroughly integrated into the plot and characterizations than we’re used to in most sitcoms.... Six episodes just don’t seem enough.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    Unlike many series--especially cable series--and despite the propensity of some family members to take undue advantage of Cam's new good fortune, the show is not broadly cynical about people or institutions, which makes it easy to like, despite its sometimes wobbly tone and occasional clumsy construction.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    Usher brings a sweetness to Cam that cuts through some of the cynicism around him. His character's far from perfect, but there are times when he seems a little too good to be true, or at least a little too good to be truly funny.
