    It sounds gimmicky and completely set up, but with this bunch it works.

  • Mark A. Perigard

    The rapid-fire editing suggests the producers are people who find MTV’s pace too slow. But Better is devilishly clever about dropping teasers about its destinations to get you as excited as its travelers about the journey. This is a Travel Channel spectacular with 10 times the budget and 100 times the star power.

    If you’re of a certain age you can’t help but find the travels of these four seniors both adorable and humorous.

    Colorado Springs Gazette Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    Reality hilarity, and tons of fast editing and confessional commentary, ensue.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Sonia Saraiya

    The reality event series eventually reveals itself to be a slightly crotchety and mostly warmhearted buddy comedy about bucket lists.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    On paper this seemed as though it could be a bit of fun. In execution, it’s labored and way over-cooked.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    Through the tommy-gun edits, paced to create a sense of Fun! and Excitement! the forced marches and arranged meetings, one gets an occasional glimpse of real people having some form of a real experience, and exchanging sincere thoughts.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • John Anderson

    The program has the depth of a tuna can and is edited so frantically it feels like a trailer for itself. The four stars are basically there to present their well-established personae.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Aaron Riccio

    This mercilessly edited program isn’t interested in thoughtful observations about the countries it visits, but on a sort of crass disaster theater, in which real-life, celebrity grumpy old men go on a Bucket List-style misadventure.
