News & Interviews for Camping: Season 1
The trouble isn't that these people are unlikable. It's that they're not unlikable enough.... And Camping isn't bad either, necessarily, it's just filled with a kind of empathy that's rather out of place.
Another perfectly serviceable series about awful people, but not a special one.
A camping trip you'd never want to take, with people you'd never like to meet, doing things you're almost embarrassed to watch.
"Camping" delivers an annoying character who is anything but amusing. She made me cringe, yes, but only because I couldn't wait to get away from her to go do my laundry and wash the dishes.
Camping all in all is less fun than waves of dive-bombing mosquitoes. Hell, even a good ol' baked bean-infused fart-fest around the campfire would be a welcome diversion.
One is left with the impression that 'Camping' wants to be a great comedy, but can't. [Full Review in Spanish]
Because neither Dunham nor Konner have the instinct to pierce their characters' jugulars, Camping becomes an accidental portrait of toxic femininity.
Instead of a wild weekend, this is another observational sitcom with a high cringe quota.
But the general sense is that Camping is working its ass off for not quite enough reward.
Jennifer Garner is totally miscast in the eight-episode Camping as the personification of every bad L.A. cliché you can think of.
Audience Reviews for Camping: Season 1
Jul 11, 2020Hilarious, and bitter
Jan 23, 2019Show is brilliant. Only a low rating because people, yet again, fail to understand Lena's choosing of annoying personalities to cater to the hilarity. I guess you've gotta be a misanthrope to love Lena's character work, which is fine because I am.
Jan 07, 2019If not for Game of Thrones coming back for its final season, this would have been enough for me to drop HBO, entirely.
Jan 07, 2019What a terrible, terrible show. I don't know who approved this, but HBO should conduct a full and thorough investigation and get to the bottom of this. First things first, this should have been a 68 minute direct to dvd movie. This was a complete and utter rip off of so many other movies, it's not even funny. I desperately wanted this to be funny, and after watching the entire series I felt so violated and like I had just been robbed of my time, bandwidth and mental sanity.
Jan 04, 2019I watched to the end hoping for some punch line, but it never happened. Unless the audience was being punked by the whole thing. Poor David Tennant was probably looking for his Tardis to get out of this mess. In the end, there was no one to care about, and no reason for it.
Dec 17, 2018I watched this because of David Tennant. I wish that I hadnt. Mindless story. unlikeable characters, dull and silly dialogue. David was the least dislikeable character but even he could not save this mess. I will wait to watch him in Good Omens, instead.
Dec 12, 2018Funny and well shot. Jennifer Garner is INCREDIBLE
Dec 02, 2018Awful, just awful. Having to watch it again would be cruel and unusual punishment. How does HBO justify putting this on the air?
Nov 26, 2018Absolutely Brilliant!!! Great acting, truly funny script. Loved it!
