Storyline

On the surface, Alex and Pete could not be more different. The recently divorced Alex is a hard-working, high-strung lawyer who is raising her 10-year-old daughter, Charlie, as a single mom following her husband's incarceration for insider trading. Unwilling to let anything get in her way, she downsizes into a smaller house and hires charismatic Pete, a free-spirited ladies man and recovering gambling addict who desperately needs this gig with Alex to jumpstart his life -- and prove that he is no longer a screw-up. Upon hiring him, Alex quickly realizes that she has met her match in Pete, who -- along with his motley construction crew - will not only tear apart her kitchen, but transform her worldview in the process.

Strongest start for a sitcom in a while
29 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

UPDATE 4/7/12: So, all 6 episodes of Bent that currently exist have aired. If "Tile Date" doesn't convince NBC that this show deserves to live, they really do have no idea what they're doing. A-

OLDER:

We're only 4 episodes into Bent, with only 2 left to air. It's likely that this show will be canceled after these 6 episodes air, given the lack of promotion and terrible ratings. Which is unfortunate, because this show is actually more than decent, particularly the third episode "HD". It's clear this show knows what it's doing, and there isn't a weak link in the cast.

You probably won't laugh out loud much watching "Bent". But unlike the similarly low-guffaw "Up All Night", this show actually has good writing, and charming, nuanced acting all around, neither of which feel desperate for laughs in the slightest. It's this low-key charm that makes the show much more entertaining than expected. B+
