When FOX announced its 2010 television season, I have to admit that "Running Wilde" was perhaps the show I was most excited to sample. Combine the charm of Keri Russell with the madcap genius of Will Arnett and add the creative juices that made "Arrested Development" one of the most invigorating and intelligent sitcoms in recent years--how can you lose? Then the mainstream critics weighed in and it was brutal. However, I still made this show destination television. Not the terrible debacle that some would have you believe, it still compared quite unfavorably to "Arrested Development" (as most sitcoms do). The way to most enjoy the pleasures of "Running Wilde," however, is to get that comparison out of your mind as fast as possible. The show's greatest sin was that of unevenness. Individual episodes could range from hysterical brilliance to head scratching oddity, but I still think this unpredictability puts it way ahead of more conventional sitcom fare.

Arnett plays the titular lead, Stephen Wilde, as an irrepressible man-child. This is a role he has perfected and could play in his sleep. This wealthy playboy lacks depth and responsibility, but the fortunes of his family keep him in style. Enter Emmy (Russell), a childhood sweetheart that makes Arnett want to be a better man. Through some over-the-top sitcom shenanigans, environmentalist Russell and her sheltered daughter come to live in Arnett's tree house (don't ask!). The daughter wants to explore this new world, but Russell resists the trappings of luxury. The season, primarily, deals with this yin/yang dynamic with Arnett pursuing Russell and her resisting.

I was so sorry to see this show leave my weekly lineup! Not only had I fallen in love with the eccentric, hilarious characters but so had every demographic in my family. This is a show we will watch over and over either on DVD or Apple TV but in the back of our minds, we will always be wishing there were new episodes headed our way.

This is borderline surreal. Especially the rich neighbor, and the conniving servants. The surface seems to be a pretty standard sitcom, but underneath there are some deeply subversive gags going on. Only lasted a season, which was a damn shame.

I really wanted to love this show since I am an Arrested Development fan. Running Wilde had potential but sadly it didn't live up to it. It did though have some hilarious moments and the storyline wasn't the worst. It is worth checking out.

I REALLY wanted to like this show! And, it has great moments. I loved Arrested Development, and Will Arnett is hilarious. Glad he bounced back with Up All Night (he's funny in it, and married on screen to STILL HOT and funny Kelly Bundy, er Christina Applegate). And Arnett IS funny in this, Kerry Russel is good, they have great chemistry, good delivery, just something was off in the writing? The stories were nothing special, the premise of the show had potential, but just didn't get anywhere. The pacing was odd and jumbled. Mom and daughter are living in a tree house one episode, living in the mansion the next, Emmy hates luxury one second, then has absolutly no principles in the next scene. Could it have been funny? Maybe if given some time to find out exactly what it is, but it seems rushed and poorly written. If only the writers had focused on what was working instead of trying to create tension between Arnett and Russel's characters. Any time neighbor Fa'ad is on screen it's hilarious, this is a character that works. And it was nice to see some of Arrested Development's alumni back together. Overall, just didn't live up to what should have been!
