Great News has great potential, but needs some work!
8 May 2017 | by (Frankfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

This new "The Office-ish" sitcom has great energy and capable comedy performers - especially the vivacious Briga Heelan, who was born for this kind of silly office comedy - but it needs some work in the script department. Some things (based on the first 4 episodes) are a little too silly and nutty (like the shenanigans Carol pulls off to try to stop her daughter from reporting on a dangerous, gone-rogue zoo bear) for words. So far the appeal rests firmly with the likability of the performers, some seasoned sitcom veterans among them. Energy and pace are frenetic, which might put some viewers off. I certainly would not recommend anyone to binge-watch this show. But I'm confident the hysteria will settle down a little bit over the season, and that they will better fine-tune the mother-daughter relationship. As it is, I would still recommend it for all sitcom fans. I certainly hope it'll stay on the air long enough to realize its full potential.
