Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life is a new comedy that follows the charming misadventures of Cooper Barett and his friends as they struggle through messy, terrible and hilarious disasters - a night in jail, crazy ex-girlfriends, going broke - giving us guidance so we can avoid the same mistakes.

Pilot Plot:

We have watched four episodes for review.

"How to Survive Your Loveable Jackass" (Airs January 3 at 8:30PM ET)

A couple years out of college, Cooper Barrett (Jack Cutmore-Scott) still doesn't have his dream job, he's possibly fallen for his across-the-hall neighbor, Kelly Bishop (Meaghan Rath), and he can't seem to avoid major trouble, along with his roommates, Neal (Charlie Saxton) and Barry (James Earl). Rounding out the gang is Cooper's older brother, Josh (Justin Bartha), who is constantly popping in to hang with the fellas and get some peace from his wife, Leslie (Liza Lapira), and their kids.

"How to Survive Insufficient Funds" (Airs January 10 at 8:30PM ET)

After sales for their hangover cure are slower than expected, the guys decide to take part in a drug trial for quick cash, but their plans are unexpectedly derailed by Paula Abdul (guest-starring as herself). Meanwhile, Kelly faces an awkward situation after spending time with Leslie and Josh in the all-new "How to Survive Insufficient Funds."

"How to Survive Being a Plus One" (Airs January 17 at 8:30PM ET)

When Kelly gets invited to her ex-boyfriend's wedding in Mexico, she doesn't want to show up alone - so she decides to bring Cooper as her plus one. But when getting to the wedding becomes a south-of-the-border logistical nightmare, Cooper enlists Neal, Barry, Josh and Leslie to come to their rescue.

"How to Survive Losing Your Phone" (Airs February 14 at 8:30PM ET)

Cooper faces the ultimate devastation of losing his phone, and the guys will stop at nothing to get it back. Meanwhile, Kelly and Leslie's karaoke duet quickly turns violent.

Analysis:

Cooper Barett's Guide to Surviving Life is not a bad show. It's slick, well-produced, and has a somewhat off-beat format that makes it stand out from your typical network hang-out sitcom. Each episode starts off "in media res," dropping you into the middle of the action and working backwards, ultimately building to some sort of "lesson" that gives each episodes a clear structure. It's a format that, while not necessarily re-inventing the wheel, could be interesting if utilized properly. There is also some talent to be found in the cast – Cuthmore-Scott is a compelling lead who makes a character who could be insufferable (mostly) likeable, and there are also good performances from Meagan Rath and Liza Lapira, who do their best to make their underwritten characters make an impact. But overall, there's really not much about Cooper Barett that we haven't seen done a million times before. If you take off the shiny packaging, this is basically yet another show about a bunch of attractive 20-somethings hanging out and having wacky adventures, a premise that's been overdone since, at least, the height of Friends.

To be fair, plenty of shows have used that formula in recent times and managed to succeed – Happy Endings, New Girl, and even niche cable fare like Broad City are all basic spins on that premise. It's clear that Cooper Barrett is desperately trying to emulate those shows, but what made those shows stand out were top-tier writing, original characters, and (in the case of Broad City especially) unique perspectives not necessarily found anywhere else on television. Cooper Barett has none of those, instead mostly feeling like a lesser reprise of a formula that films like The Hangover and shows like Workaholics have already worn dry. Of course, plenty of sitcoms start off favoring the generic and eventually work towards something more unique and individual, and I'm not ruling out the possibility that Cooper Barett will eventually turn into a worthwhile show if it's given the chance. But as it stands now, this is a show that's not especially funny, recycles trite generic sitcom tropes, and has characters that feel like generic stock types rather than actual human beings. It's far from the worst show you'll see this year, and there's good moments scattered through-out the mediocrity. But with so much great TV out there, there's really very little reason to waste your time with Cooper Barrett.

Conclusion:

Cooper Barrett has its moments, but they're few and far between what is mostly a generic, recycled mix of things that we've seen done better in the past. With a somewhat unique premise and some strong actors in its ensemble, the possibility that it'll eventually become something more can't be ruled out, but there's very little in these first four episodes to suggest that any improvement is imminent. It's not the worst way to spend a half-hour, but there are an infinite number of shows out in our vast television landscape that'll provide a better use of your time.

Final Numbers (out of 5 stars):

Watchability: 3/5
Funniness: 2/5
Overall: 2.5/5
