Critic Reviews for Blunt Talk: Season 1

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (19)

Blunt Talk aspires to Network's kinetically brilliant madness. It arrives a limp and muddled mess.

Too many of the characters and situations fail to be either recognizable or fresh, and the satire has no target. Perhaps the title refers to the show's lack of a point.

Stewart and Scarborough make Blunt Talk worth watching, as they're an offbeat co-dependent pair who clearly have great affection and respect for each other, and watching Stewart embrace Walter's often loony behavior is a treat.

This could break for comedy or tragedy. Happily for us, the producers chose comedy.

Though the central figure may feel familiar in a drama, he's surprisingly fresh in this 30-minute comic lark.
