21 April 2006 | BioChemical
Only watchable
"Freddie" is a programme that probably should never have been produced. It is poorly written, very unrealistic and worst of all - it's not funny.

Freddie Prinze Jr. as the star of the show SHOULD carry its weight but sadly he is not up to it. His performance is forever pushed and unnatural, it's as though he is trying to create a mix of Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer (who both have a natural comedic flair) but ends up failing horribly.

The grandma strand is just ridiculous. She speaks Spanish, never uttering a word of English, and yet she understands everything anyone says to her (and also now apparently everyone understands Spanish too). It seems like the writers were trying to mask the shows terrible script with a bit of class - subtitles. However, a stench can only be covered for so long.

There is one slight saving grace which makes this show watchable at the very most, Brian Astin Green. This should have been his show. Prinze Jr is not unlikeable but he can't muster the same sort of charisma as his sidekick and that's a problem when a sidekick out-shows the star.

"Freddie" relies heavily on canned laughter and it's obvious why, this is the unfunniest comedy series of the season.

There's no way we're missing the live recreation of two Norman Lear classics, the dark wit of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and the terror of "The Hot Zone."
