What's great about this show is the strong role model found in Alex's character. She's a hard-working, driven, professional female, but she's also human, and the show does a decent job of displaying her faults, such as her inability to juggle too many things at once.

However, with so many new and innovative sitcoms on network TV these days, an old-school show with a laugh track really needs something extra -- something that's more of a departure from what we've been seeing for years. And unfortunately, Courting Alex just doesn't have it. The dialogue seems very forced and the plot seems rather canned.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
