Critic Reviews for Almost Royal: Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

Almost Royal consistently makes us almost laugh. That's more than almost good enough.

The show never succeeds in finding any great comic opportunities from their real-world marks, as if everyone they encounter has already entertained the idea that this might actually be a hoax.

(Almost Royal) feels like a take on Sacha Baron-Cohen's antics in Borat and Da Ali G Show. But whereas Cohen's work seemed harshly satirical and occasionally mean-spirited, this aims to be more broad, message-less, fun and easy.

Almost Royal is not a series that demands to be watched, but it's a cute diversion for Anglophiles looking for intermittent laughs.

June 20, 2014 | Full Review…

Almost Royal, BBC America's first original comedy that takes this nation's fascination with royals and Downton Abbey and anything with even a remote British accent and sends it up, well, smashingly.

This first episode of Almost Royal did elicit some chuckles, but it was never as satirical or as audacious [as Sacha Baron Cohen's work].
