Critic Reviews for Traffic Light: Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (16)

The opening night lesson of the new Fox sitcom "Traffic Light" is that no matter how marvelous hands-free telephone technology has become, it isn't yet advanced enough to carry its own sitcom.

A not-unpleasing comedy that takes time and commitment to grow on you.

Distinctive, sympathetic, and tinged with promise.

All five characters transcend the cheap stereotypes that lazy writers so frequently use to populate their sitcoms. That may not be enough to propel their show into syndication, but for a Fox sitcom, even cautious optimism is a step in the right direction.

Traffic Light is winning and amusing without being loud and loutish.

Top Critic

It's nothing amazing, but it's a decent comfort food type series that gets a lot of mileage from the cast and some increasingly amusing scenarios.
