Bent is a new single-camera sitcom featuring Amanda Peet as a single-mother who has a We Must Not Have A Relationship relationship with her freewheeling contractor. It’s amiable, but not amazing; watchable without ever actually being particularly amusing. TV fans may be amused by one of the stars of Friday Night Lights playing against a character named “Riggins” again. The central relationship isn’t driving enough to be fascinating; the supporting characters (including Jeffery Tambor as the contractor’s long-struggling actor father) don’t have enough interesting to do to distract from the leads. I won’t cringe from watching it again, but I’ll be slightly surprised if I do.
