| Strongest start for a sitcom in a while
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+
