"Break a Leg is Arrested Development set in the TV industry. It's wonderfully produced and they've just released a great third episode."
Huffington Post

"'Break a Leg' proves that Yuri Baranovsky is the Woody Allen of the Web 2.0...The show is... irreverent and clever...with this wild spirit of anarchy. There’s something in it that reminds me of virtually every Jewish comedian I love: the craziness of Mel Brooks, the wittiness of Woody Allen, the silliness of Ben Stiller. It’s much better than most of the stuff that’s on television today."
Jewish Week

"...[a] brilliant sitcom..."

"[Break a leg] has the makings to be the next 'Office'. Now with a Hollywood name in the billing, Patrice Oneal, it is sure to get more press, and the recognition it deserves...This thing is funny, off the wall, fast, and most of all believable. That is hard to find these days in shows, even on the networks."

"It’s a dark, absurdist and quirky interpretation of the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown ...the notion that things could get stranger is, to say the very least, intriguing."

"Good writing, good sound, good camera work and last but not least good personalities... Even the bloopers are fun and interesting to view...Like that favorite bag of chips, I just can't 'eat' just one...If they get going with this sitcom, it should be one of the best."
-Total Amazement blog

"There’s a lot to like about this: the production is solid, the acting is professional and the writing is better than most 'regular' TV fare. My goal is to get this on my Apple TV to see what it looks like on the big screen. Seems like that’s where it belongs."
-What's On Tonight blog

"Vlad and Yuri Baranovsky’s web-based sitcom 'Break a Leg' delves into the mysterious (and apparently comedic hijinx filled) world of TV sitcom production and...there’s no shortage of the funny to be had."

"The show, a dead-pan comedy featuring warring guilds, a meta-TV show, and a bunch of goofballs, is a poor man's Arrested Development, and I say that out of love."
