United States of Al: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

United States of Al: Season 1 (2021)




Critic Consensus: United States of Al is well-meaning in its ambitions, but its limp humor and the one-dimensionality of its titular character proves that the road to dud sitcom can be paved with good intentions.


Tv Season Info

A comedy about the friendship between Riley, a Marine combat veteran struggling to readjust to civilian life in Ohio, and Awalmir ("Al"), the interpreter who served with his unit in Afghanistan and has just arrived to start a new life in America.

Its heart's in the right place, it's the comedy part that's not.

All this show can generate for Al is to call him an 'optimistic little dude,' and that patronizing pat on the head is pretty much the whole vibe of the arduous United States of Al.

There's the seeds of a good character-driven sitcom here.

Sort of a modern-day Perfect Strangers, only sadder and with less charm.

It's all mostly endearing, even when some of the jokes land too hard.

With a talented cast and writing staff and a truly original premise, it might really turn into something exceptional.
