TV Review: ‘Casual’

TV Review: ‘Casual’
Edgy doesn’t equal interesting in “Casual,” a Hulu series that hews close to pay-tv territory in terms of language and sex, but winds up feeling like a racier rehash of the short-lived Fox comedy “Ben and Kate.” Both shows feature the tight relationship between a cohabitating brother and sister, the latter with a daughter — although here, she’s less adorable tyke and more sexually active 16-year-old smarty-pants. Directed by Jason Reitman (“Up in the Air”), and written by Zander Lehmann, the show posts an indie-film sensibility, yes, but is a little too casual about delivering laughs or plot.

Part of the problem, frankly, is that the show’s male protagonist, Alex (Tommy Dewey), feels like another permutation on a character we’ve seen, oh, 20 or 30 times before. He’s a code-writing Peter Pan, one who’s good-looking enough to bed plenty of attractive women but who resists commitment as
