Happy Town: Season 1 (2010)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Happy Town is entertaining in spurts, but its Twin Peaks-lite storyline is too unfocused and tonally inconsistent to make good on the promise of creepy thrills.

Critic Reviews for Happy Town: Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (13)

Happy Town, ABC's new psychological thriller, offers more confusion than intrigue.

Full Review… | April 29, 2010
Daily Telegraph

It wants to scare us, sure, but it's also aware that it's a campy television show version of most horror movies.

Full Review… | April 29, 2010
TV Fanatic

Considering that it's about a town with a serial killer, I found myself surprisingly bored by the pacing and the plotting.

Full Review… | April 29, 2010
Television Without Pity

Happy Town is no more Twin Peaks than a 12-year-old in a Los Angeles Lakers replica t-shirt is Kobe Bryant.

Full Review… | April 28, 2010
HitFix

The show delivers on the boast by presenting a literate and well-constructed knockoff of Frost/Lynch's patented Twin Peaks atmosphere but with its own freaky-folksy voice.

Slate
Top Critic

The biggest flaw in the series: Heaps and heaps of plot exposition come at us, but the story is happening to characters that are thinly drawn.
