Critic Reviews for Almost Royal: Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

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

(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.

If you're the type of viewer who appreciates the work of English comics like Ricky Gervais or Steve Coogan, you're going to laugh at Almost Royal.

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].
