Critic Consensus: Blunt Talk squanders Sir Patrick Stewart's considerable gifts on a show that too often mistakes forced vulgarity for wit.

News & Interviews for Blunt Talk: Season 1
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.
