Retired At 35

January 20, 2011 by staff 

Retired At 35, “retire at 35,” world premiere Wednesday on TV Land, is all about spitting a line of tired and waiting for canned laughter to begin.

The retro cable channel launching believes the sitcom back at his worst (but successful) days of brainless humor, laugh tracks, characters, cookie-cutter is the way to go. (You people who continue to watch “Hot in Cleveland” are to blame.)

The story is simple. David (Johnathan McClain) is a workaholic who visits his parents (Jessica Walter and George Segal) in Florida and decided to stay to find – but in fact, it seems, so he can recite or listen to all jokes about the elderly ever dreamed up. He is overweight, the self-deprecating best friend, Brandon (Josh McDermitt), and a love story, Jessica (Ryan Michelle Bathe).

Instead of Betty White, Walter viewers, who can be fantastic in almost anything – as if she were, say, “Arrested Development” – but leaves this long comedy at the height of the spout retorts you can see from several decades. It is reduced to painting on canvas and hot studs talk about work very hard to get just the genitals. Segal milks old greybeard tech humor, said his son as “stop everything texturing” when he is texting and ask, “Are you on the book of face?”

As TV Land’s original sitcom other Hot In Cleveland, everyone “to retire at 35”semble sure to have fun, but very little pleasure to be translated for the audience watching at home. Yet where Hot In Cleveland was at least fairly well built and had four veteran comedy punchlines idle chatter around until they sounded kind of funny, even if they were not funny, “to retirement 35”est even more lazy, and actors often is not the demand to make that kind of stuff seem more funny than it is. Oh, of course, George Segal and Jessica Walter are on hand to give their best try, but everyone? They are a mixed bag, and he left the show feeling both bland and boring, which is never a good combination. It is unfortunate, because that terrestrial TV is about network programming for this particular niche of programming, and if they really wanted, they could attract the talent to make a really good traditional sitcom. Instead, they seem adopted the idea that what the public wants is exactly what they have seen before.
