Dont Listen to the critics.. Its no Malcom or Wonder Years, but its still funny..
11 March 2003 | by (Southern California) – See all my reviews

Alright, first off there's only been 1 episode that has aired in U.S. so far, so there's really no telling if this series will get better or worse.

I originally heard bad reviews of this and I was not going to watch it, but since someone already TIVOed it, I watched it. It was much better than I expected. The reasons why its getting bad reviews is because of its similarities to two better shows, Malcolm in the Middle and The Wonder Years. To be honest, I think the worst problem of "Oliver Beene" is the odd casting. Sure, the kid who plays Oliver looks the part, but he's not really likable and seems he's trying too hard, but maybe he'll grow into the part more, like the kids on "Malcolm in the Middle". The story of the pilot episode was good, especially the way it ended.

Bottom Line: Its not going to change your life, its just an entertainment show and it does entertain.

Thank You
