Critic Reviews for Blunt Talk Season 1

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (20)

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.

Its excesses are offset by enough inspired lunacy to carry the day.

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.

I'm bored as hell and I'm not going to watch this anymore.

Watching Stewart run around like a mad man will lead to some legitimate chuckles.

Aug 17, 2015 | Full Review…

The waste of this much talent is almost criminal, and, given the nature of the scripts, one charge against the writers would be assault with a blunt object.

Aug 17, 2015 | Full Review…

The most obvious reason to avoid Blunt Talk is that it's preventing the world from enjoying everything Stewart actually has to offer.
