      Audience Reviews for Abbott Elementary: Season 1

      • Mar 18, 2023
        Didn't enjoy. Corny 0 skill from the writers, acting can only carry so much
      • Mar 15, 2023
        Wonderful! Very interesting and entertaining. I watch it with my whole family.
      • Mar 10, 2023
        This first season was the reason I kept waiting for season 2 to arrive. If you can't have a great first season why even brother but this Show is so GREAT, it keeps me laughing. 5/5 stars
      • Feb 10, 2023
        A mixture of fun and funny, Abbott Elementary shines with it's strong cast of characters. Often the jokes only work due to the systemically abysmal state of the US education system. It's a dark hurdle to jump over, but it works almost all the time so long as your humor is calibrated for it. Abbott Elementary recognizes this and leans in at every opportunity with their exceptional cast for a rare basic cable slam dunk.

        love love love! Nice to have some great comedy shows again! And a mockumentary style one too!
      • Jan 20, 2023
        This show is so silly! Most of the joke landed for me even though I am not part of American culture, and that shows how universally understandable some of the joke are. The mockumentary style definitely remind me of this other office popular sitcom from years ago, but aside from that, this show have their own soul and characteristics. Hopefully we'll get more in-depth development for the characters in future installment, otherwise... cheers.

        Pretty funny, kinda like The Office but in a school
      • Jan 13, 2023
        Pretty standard fare. I'm sure the normies will love it, but there was no bite to the couple episodes I watched. Overrated.
      • Jan 12, 2023
        Not sure why anyone thinks this is a great show, cause its not! It just puts in full display any and every kind of minority stereotype. It is plain satire, but not funny in any way. I also dont like the "talking to the camera" bit, it would probably be better if it just flowed like a normal day, as supposed to them staring directly to the camera and commenting.
      • Jan 11, 2023
        I am absolutely thrilled with this first season! So funny! All the actors and actresses are top notch.
