  • Although it’s nicely scruffy around the edges, it’s essentially a gimmick show with not enough funny lines to make Martin’s sonorous narration appealing after you listen to him for more than 15 minutes. Tolman is very good, but you walk away from the show thinking she really could have done better than this as her post-Fargo project. Show More

  • It's charming. It's funny, but not in a setup-joke, yuck-it-up way. It's sort of observational comedy--observed from the dog's point of view. Show More

  • When Downward Dog tries to be a show as funny as the ABC ads try to make it look, it's not very good at all. ... When Downward Dog is about the love triangle or unconventional ménage à trois between Martin, Nan and Jason, that's a show that I mostly enjoyed. Show More
