Netflix’s newest debut proves it might be the modern sitcom’s last hope

Unfortunately, shows are increasingly being denied this room to grow. Audiences—and networks—are abandoning most new network sitcoms quickly, sometimes after only an episode or two.

Still, even this promising upstart will need plenty of TLC to thrive. – Jason Lynch, Quartz
